New MacArthur High School Sign Causes Complaints and Controversy in Lawton!
A new digital billboard for a local high school is causing quite the controversy and heated debate online and elsewhere in Lawton, Fort Sill. I guess some people are either really bored or are so fulfilled in their day-to-day lives that this is all they can come up with to complain about. Of all the topics and craziness in the world, this, this right here, is what some people choose to get all worked up and upset about. People man, people!
If you've been on the Eastside of town lately on E. Gore Blvd. you may have seen the brand new digital sign for MacArthur High School. It was generously donated by Liberty National Bank and in my honest, humble, non-biased opinion a great looking sign. So why are people getting so upset about it and spewing negative comments all over social media? See the "has no life" explanation above for a direct and truthful answer.
At first some people were angry that the other two high schools didn't get signs. Well, that's in the works. From what we're hearing Liberty National Bank plans on purchasing and donating new digital signs for both Lawton High and Eisenhower. Then people started gripping about how Liberty National Bank put their name at the bottom of the sign, despite having paid for it. There were people who even commented that the money would have been better spent on other things, versus a digital billboard. And the list goes on and on...
If ever there were an appropriate time to exclaim WTF this is it. I just don't get it and for the life of me can't understand why some people are complaining about this. Sure, you're certainly entitled to your opinions and are certainly acting entitled, but whatever. So since I too have a right to express my opinions here goes. I think Liberty National Bank did a great thing and I applaud them for donating the new sign. They have pride in our area schools and wanted to do something for them, I commend them for that.
As far as putting their name on the sign, I'm 100% cool with that too. After all, they paid for it and again it shows that they support our local high schools. At the end of the day, they just wanted to do something nice and show their support. It's their money and they chose how they would like to spend it. To those who are complaining remember it wasn't your money or tax dollars that were used. There's nothing quite like trying to do something nice for others and all you hear or get is complaints and negativity, unbelievable.
Now there are people who are thankful to Liberty National Bank and appreciate all they've done and continue to do for our community and local schools. So don't get me wrong it's not everyone who's complaining, just the Karens and Chads of our happy, humble, medium-sized metropolis. I'd say most people are happy with the new digital sign and only the usual suspects are spouting off angry remarks online. So what do you think? Do you like or dislike the new sign?
