Mysterious Blue Lines Are Appearing On Curbs Across America. Here’s The Meaning Behind Them…

...taking on a literal meaning in city after city.



Through the Safe Harbor Initiative, Anthony Welichko of San Antonio is urging Americans to spray paint a blue line on the curb by their home as a simple public affirmation of their support for the police.

“To all law enforcement who see this line, know that the residents of this home appreciate your service and dedication to keeping the peace,” Welichko wrote on Facebook. “Know that when you enter the neighborhood and see these lines that you are not alone or without ‘back-up.’ We do not need the media to make our voices of support for our police and emergency services heard (though it would be nice). Lastly, if you are in my neighborhood and mean to harm a member of law enforcement, know that decision may be hazardous you (sic) health as someone has that officers (sic) back!”

Welichko’s post has been shared more than 75,000 times.

“The war against police, if you will, gets a lot of attention. I get the sense that the officers themselves aren’t seeing that support,” said Welichko. “Every single day they’re here protecting us. Our families. Our children. They absolutely deserve that respect, and they need to know we appreciate that.”

Welichko urged citizens across the country to act.

“This is not an organized movement requiring one to join, sign-up or reach out for permission. If you wish to show your support the same way I have then grab a can of paint and go for it,” he wrote.

I think this is a great ideal. Blue ribbons around mail boxes etc.

  ON Long Island .New York we have Posted BLUE RIBBONS on Phone Poles, Houses, Street Signs and every place reachable in SUPPORT of OUR POLICE !!!!

  Our Police on Patrol in our neighborhoods can easily see, that they have the overwhelming support of our Community. It sends a POWERFUL MESSAGE !!!!

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I love it and will paint a blue line by my rural home. May all law enforcement know we have your back.

I live in the woods too. I'll paint a blue line at my rural mail box and make some fliers to let all my neighbors know what it's for. Lots of gun owners out here!!!

I'm with you...  I too live in a rural area, but we support our local law enforcement.  Ribbons, flyers, all great ideas.  Let get our communities and churches involved also, this could be a great outreach in many ways!!!

Bring it on - I could use a little more practice with moving targets!

Great idea.

The officers who put their very lives on the line for our safety each and every day on duty deserve our utmost respect and support.

If they get rid of the thugs out of the police service and start proceedings against gangster stile tactics when police brutalize citizens I will paint the whole block blue... until then I wouldn't lift a brush!

I'm inflamed to see a child murdered by a cop and say oops when they should put them in the electric chair. I'm tired of seeing old people winding up dead after breaking down their door. I'm tired of hearing that cops go around like gang members or a pack of dogs to beat a hand cuffed suspect. I'M FED UP... HOW ABOUT YOU?

In my opinion, every profession has some bad seeds that make it rough for everyone in that profession. For example, teachers get a bad rap because of the few who don't do their job to the standards expected. Therefore, teaching is viewed as a "blow off" profession! The police have many "bad seeds" who are willingly abusing their power which is causing havoc for the cops who truly want to serve, protect, and help the public. Just like in teaching, the bad teachers are replaced, so the same should happen to the police. A good reputation can be restored in time. Every profession NEEDS TO CLEAN HOUSE once in a while!!!

 

I agree that there are bad seeds in every profession but I do not agree with you on your example of teachers. Most teachers are part of unions that are almost impossible to fire no matter how bad they teach or behave..   Over the past few years I have heard of all kinds of bad behavior from teachers that keep their jobs/pay but a regular citizen that would have done what they did would be in prison for years and fired from their job.

Also you used the word "Many" in describing bad police.  a few is more likely the truth.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
