Solar billboard hypocrisy

WTF? Solar Billboards in Hoboken? Isn’t that hypocritical?

This is along the lines of the recent Obnoxious ZIP CAR advertisements that are peppered around Hoboken.

Now the administration has approved these stupid ass “eco powered” solar billboards advertising crap all around the city.

How did the “Hoboken Historical Commission” allow these? They’re nothing like Hoboken “was!”

They’re ugly, consume space, and distract residents and visitors alike. Eye-clogging for sure!

All for a few shekels in the city coffers. These people will turn a blind eye for anything (up to and including murder if it translates into “money!”) How far will they go? Why aren’t any of YOU (i.e., city residents) saying “what the fuck are you doing?”

I understand why these don’t get any “flack.” Because how DARE anyone complain about anything that has a dopey “eco-friendly” solar panel attached! (Who knows, they may not even be real or operational… just for “show!”)

(Anyone that gets influenced by these signs – please email us. We have even better things to sell you!)

Anything for a nickel these days.

These actually bring in a ton of revenue for cities across the country, plus a great way for local businesses to get the word out.
