|0637 - I don't usually do bumper stickers...|
...but I'm seriously considering this one:
current mood: determined
You do realise you will get keyed, right?
Yeah, especially in the neighborhood vakkotaur
's sister lives in. That's almost all of the reason I'm hesitant. Apparently, free speech via bumper stickers is only for the followers of the Obamessiah.
If someone stuck that on my car, I'd torch it with a rocket-propelled grenade.
I find myself wishing for a hood mounted RPG sometimes when I'm behind someone with a billion bumper stickers on their car...
I always wonder if it's possible to get them off cleanly, or does the driver count self-expression as more important than resale value?
Some bumper stickers can be removed cleanly, while others cannot. I suspect car dealers have some magic gunk that removes them all cleanly.
The one I linked to says in its description that it's got adhesive that allows clean removal.
And yet, just a few replies ago, you predicted that your car would get keyed (IMHO a better fate than an RPG) and that freedom of speech isn't alive and well because of the stupid Obama supporters (my words, not yours) that would stoop to such a level.
You cannot say that Obama supporters are the only ones who would key an anti-Obama bumper sticker; convince me that there are absolutely no equally idiotic Republicans that wouldn't key an Obama car, especially if they were in a predominantly Republican area.
Note that it's the idiots I'm against, no matter what political stripe they are. I'm, as you well know, an ardent Obama supporter, and I found the bumper sticker clever and witty, and chuckled when I read it.
Does it still surprise you that people place partisanship on a higher priority than the principles they publicly espouse?
Stated vs revealed preference, economists call it.
It never did surprise me; I was merely pointing out the usual hypocrisy of the Left.
