Yesterday, I met Dave and a friend of his who did not want to be photographed. Dave has been homeless for four years. He told me that he’s had to fly signs fairly often in order to eat or find means to travel. Recently, he decided to offer up his services as a protester, holding up any sign you want for $1. I gave him $20 in exchange for photographing him and some of his favorite signs.
His favorite is the “Governor Walker Stimulate Your Own Package” one. It refers to the recent moves by our Governor to prevent people from being able to buy junk food with Food Share. Dave’s feelings on the matter are that “it’s about freedom of choice. Only slaves have to ask permission.”
