Yes on C Rally in St. Louis

The fight for healthcare freedom came to St. Louis on Saturday. About fifteen activists showed up to handout Yes on C literature to passing motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists. Two of those activists are running for state rep in the Missouri House: Patricia Verde in the 64th and Curtis Farber in the 67th. At least, two bloggers were handing out literature: HennessysView.com and GatewayPundit.com. A thousand flyers were distributed as well as 20 to 30 yard signs. Even in traditionally Democrat south St. Louis city support for "Yes on C" was strong.

There were opponents. Curtis Farber posted to facebook about one encounter:
Prop C opponent quote of the day: "if we just tax everybody for health care then no one will have to pay for it."

The guy later admitted he had enough money in his savings to cover his health care costs, but he wanted someone else to pay for it because he wanted to leave his savings to his children. If this guy isn't willing to spend his own money to pay to save his own life why in the hell should we have to pay for it?

PLEASE TELL ME WHERE IN ST LOUIS I CAN GET A YES ON C YARD SIGN!!

I vote absentee, so you can already count at least one vote in favor, but I would like a sign to educate my neighbors.
Does anyone (preferably in South County) have these signs available?

Thanks in advance if you do!

@Robert

There are two locations in St. Louis where you can pick them up. Look under the picture of the Yes on C yard sign at the Healthcare Freedom website. Call first to make sure that they've got signs in stock--phone numbers are listed at the link.

Unfortunately I've already called both. They were out and didn't expect more, as the funding was being redirected to print and TV advertising in the run-up to the election.
I was hoping for an alternate source.

On a semi-related note, anyone know of anywhere offering yard signs proclaiming support for Arizona in their epic fight against the Feds?
