Skip to comments.Obama Bumper Sticker Ephiphany
Posted on 08/08/2011 11:23:05 AM PDT by ml/nj
So I was driving the NY Thruway up to Saratoga this past weekend and I saw a few old Obama 2008 bumper stickers. As I saw each one I thought to myself, "How stupid must that person be not to have removed it yet."
But then I passed a car with one of those old stickers with a new one that had another with nothing more than "2012" on it pasted next to the old one. A white, 40 something woman was driving. And it hit me. She is a government employee. She is quite happy about what is going on. For her, the recession is something she reads about in the newspaper. She does not sense that her job is threatened. She got her usual automatic pay raise last year. She might work for State or local government. She might be a teacher. It doesn't matter.
She is the enemy.
She is hardly alone. Her side is the one that is well armed and well organized. All of the people who decide that she will keep her job and her raises are also employed by government. That includes every Republican too, including the supposedly confrontational NJ Governor Christie. Has he laid off even one NJ employee? (Duh. No.) Has any Republican in Congress or any State Legislature call for layoffs? (Duh. No.) If some citizen were to go to court to try to end this madness, who would decide the case? (Another government employee.)
At the track, I talked to a number of strangers. One guy sitting next to me on Friday had a smart phone, and so I asked him how the market was doing. What site did he call up? Kitco.com! (Gold/metals sellers) And we started talking. He is surely one of us. Afraid, scared, not sure what to do. Another guy saw me walking with a cigar and asked for a light for his cigar. I took two matches out of a box and gave them to him with the box. (I always use two matches together.) He only used only one and I commented to him that that was very conservative of him, not really thinking about anything political. He just had to tell me that he IS a conservative, and so we commiserated. I mentioned the bumper sticker thing to him and my notion that the government is our enemy. His response was, "You sure got that right." I'm sure there were some government employees there, but I didn't talk to any of them.
There are a lot of BMWs, Mercedes, Audis, and Lexuses with Obama bumper stickers. It’s a fashion statement
Liberal in the classic sense as in liberal arts - liberated from the necessity of working/manual labor.
That's sad, that it indeed has come to that pass. She is. Today it is in actuality the Federal Establishment which is set against every free citizen. That Federal Establishment includes the government bureaucracy, but it also includes universities, who are highly protected, funded and regulated by the Federal government. It also includes many financial operations which are tightly entangled with the Federal Reserve and the various Federal regulators. It includes many co-opted "private" enterprises accepting Federal grants, loans, contracts and tacked down like barnacles to the Federal hull.
It also includes those citizens whose daily lives are funded by the Federal Government via jobs, pensions, welfare, grants.
Are we, the still free, a minority?
Today a new civil war has begun. They have attacked us. They have left no way to bargain with them.
A horrible realization but probably true.
These people put the Dem candidate sticker on their cars because it’s like voting to eat. What other choice do they have?
I drove across Missouri and Kansas and half of Colorado last month. On the highway, until I reached Boulder, I saw more Kerry/Edwards stickers than obama. Obots have been busy cleansing their cars of signs pointing to their dopey/changey feelings.
When 47 percent of the population doesn’t pay federal taxes, it’s a foregone conclusion that their vote represents a raid on the coffers of the producers.
Obama has the votes of the non-producers. They are his constituency, along with guilty white liberals, the elite media, race-conscious loyalists, and blue collar union workers. They like him because he promises them something for nothing, all in the interest of “fairness” of course.
1. Be given a home loan you have no hope of ever paying pack.
2. Take out home equity line, plunk down cash for new BMW.
3. Falling behind on house payments? No problem, get bailed out by the taxpayers.
4. When home eventually foreclosed, drive away in your new BMW.
Happens all the time.
I mentioned this on an earlier thread when I come across a driver with an 0bama sticker. I try to get next to them at a light and get their attention. Then I roll down my window and say “Hey! Thought you might like to know, but some prankster has slapped an 0bama sticker on your car!” Then I smile and roll up my window. Makes my day every time!
In my travels I see the same thing - except the age range veers towards the 50-ish. Female. Fugly. With a dour expression and typically an anti-social attitude.
It makes sense that they would be supportive of the only sort of environment that would continue to carry dead-weight like them.
Here in the Seattle area Libtards don’t remove their bumper stickers - period. You still see John Kerry stickers quite often. and Obama stickers are still everywhere.
Somebody wrote it here the other day: I vew every Obama ‘12 bumper sticker as a threat.
(New tagline debut)
(Guess the Mariners aren't punishment enough...)
I wanted to buy a fancy new printer and they questioned me. Asking “are you going to do anything that would destabalize the economy with that thing?”
I said, “you mean counterfeiting?”
They said “No, we mean printing Obama bumperstickers”
I don’t see any where near as many Obama stickers as I used to in Los Angeles.

His “Brand” is just as empty as the designer labels he mimics.
Yes, that's true. But in an even more profound sense, they have made violence inevitable by corrupting down to its tiniest details the very language we use to frame our debate. The only cousrse open to those of us who wish to live free is to remove the the statists, freeloaders and totalitarians amongs. Permanently. They chose the rules of engagement - we didn't. So they should hardly be surprised at the results.
Might as well get a tattoo on your forehead that says: ‘I am an idiot’
They can always choose to put *no* campaign stickers on their cars. Which, IIRC, is the law (Hatch Act).
Neal Boortz was talking about a bumper sticker on Friday.
It had a picture of Obama with the caption: “Do you think this ASS makes my car look bigger?”
