I thought he was once a Sheriff of which is electable in most cases though will have review his employment history to verify if he was actually elected or not. Minor point anyhow.
No, actually it is a major point. That is what is wrong with a majority of the people who post around here - they "assume" or just make up all the preliminary facts that would give any credit at all to any of this other ridiculous crap.
You might have "THOUGHT" he was once a sheriff - an elected official - but actually he was just a simple patrol cop (not even a captain) who has been retired since the 80's. He has been coming up with new conspiracies and finding ways to profit from them since then. He is a joke. This is all a joke.
where is musselwhite? can we get her in here? she is the best/worst at this whole pesky "facts" business.

ya know, if people, houses or sidewalks were being marked for extermination, they might try some more innocuous way, like inks that only show up with goggles and a uv light, or some such other thing.
we are FEMA, we shall exterminate this sidewalk in the name of the greater justice of the NWO. Men! jackhammer at will!

I disagree about this being a code for news delivery also. I worked in news circulation for a major US paper and I have never heard of such a thing.
The delivery drivers had cards which told them who got what, there were no stickers on boxes. I agree with the other poster that this would be defacement of property. And people are enormously picky about little things like this, think of human nature.
Also, common sense dictates that one would not drive the whole route looking for stickers - it would be a huge waste of time. Think about it - would you drive say 10 miles out of your way just to see a dot which informs you "no paper today". No, you wouldn't. That would create wasted time, fuel, and wasted as well as missed papers. So much easier to have route cards to glance at and see there's no need to go to whatever location on a particular day.
I was paid decent money to keep on top of all this route info - and there were hundreds of people just like me doing the same job for their areas. Obviously there was a reason why we were paid to do this instead of the company just putting a bunch of stickers on mail boxes (eg that would be totally inefficient.) And in rural areas with less news subscribers - it would be even more inefficient because one would be driving around looking at mailboxes pointlessly. Much easier to have that info right in front of you *before* you go driving (or walking) all over kingdom come.
Whatever these dots are - I really don't think they pertain to news delivery.

Well, I think I'll put a pink sticker on my mailbox.
Better to be safe than sorry.

Dots= delivery of newspapers??????
Im sorry, but I didnt know that the newspaper industry had the right to tag anyones property.
Second of all, I didnt know that they couldnt deliver the paper without the use of dots. I dont have dots on my mailbox yet I still get the paper.
But hey, maybe I am wrong, maybe they are that stupid.
