Passing Shots: Political Street Art Along the Way

While out and about in my trendy, hipster wacko neighborhood all sorts of things catch my eye so I grab a quick shot and save them for later. Many are of a political nature but most are just arty and those tend to be generally very weird or not safe for work. The political ones don't always make it into posts but they are kind of amusing.

The one above I noticed this morning was posted on a mailbox by someone who hates the police.

The one of the 'End the Fed' variety is recent and very rare around these parts.
It has since been taken down.

This '99%'er apparently lives in a very nice building in what is now quite an expensive area to live in.

Still posted in a local bookstore window.
Money talks too much? I guess so.. OWS is broke!

Is this street art supposed to be Obama or Mandela? Or both? Is the 'Chairman' a reference to Mao? Kind of a grab bag of sorts. Very weather worn at this point.

Could even be Jimmy Carter's squint.

At first glance I though this was Obama.
It turned out to be Putin and has since faded into the sidewalk.

Wow. Quite a collection.

Glad you're still around.
