Bush Bumper Sticker Still Gets Results (vanity)-Camarillo Rescue

Posted on 01/03/2005 12:00:06 PM PST by Hi Heels

Driving home from Ventura yesterday (in KALLIFORNIA, I might add) and forgot to get gas. Ran out at the base of the Camarillo grade (not a great place to run out of gas). Managed to get off the freeway. We get out of the car realizing we had forgotten to get gas, and got a can out of the trunk. Looked around, nothing for MILES. Figured we would have to resort to cannibalism and was trying to position myself to knock the boyfriend over the head to avoid an ambush in the future when around the corner came a huge pick'em up truck. The guy driving and his passenger(never even got their names) are nascar workers. Had 50 gallons of fuel aboard his truck WITH a nozzle, etc. We were on the road within minutes. Before he left, he pointed at my Bush/Cheney sticker and said, "if this had been a Kerry sticker, I wouldn't even have looked over at you." So, Partner, if you're on here, and I can't imagine you aren't, Thanks.

ROFL! Great story. BTW, is NASCAR fuel higher grade than commercial gasoline?

(In the spirit of conciliation, I took my Bush-Cheney sticker off my truck after the election. But I've seen so many Kerry-Edwards stickers still on cars, I'm about to put a new Bush sticker back on the old pickup.)

Definitely a great story!

BTW, AFTER the election in my very liberal town, I saw what seemed like hundreds of Bush stickers sprouting on the backs of cars everywhere! There was a lot of hostility here, and I guess people were afraid to put them on before the election. But it seems like being on the winning side gave them courage.

On the flip side, I kept my small "Law Enforcement For Bush 2004" sticker on my SUV. I took a road trip to Seattle on Saturday and was flipped off three times. Maybe they don't like SUV's?

I've still got my Bush sticker on the car. I think I'll keep it there a little longer.

Yep, I left all of mine on my Honda and my truck.

I have two that say, "Give War a Chance" and "I "heart" Halliburton."

I've only got positive responses. People usually drive by and beep and give me a thumbs up!

Think I'll leave them on for a while...

I live in a very intresting heavily democrap community and I had hesitation on putting on my W04 bumper sticker.

I'm glad I did after all

"....I took a road trip to Seattle on Saturday and was flipped off three times."

LOL...nothing like rubbing it in their noses.

I think they named it the "Emerald City" because of the similarity to OZ.

"But these unpleasant things existed only in a few remote parts of the Land of Oz. I suppose every country has some drawbacks, so even this almost perfect fairyland could not be quite perfect. Once there had been wicked witches in the land, too; but now these had all been destroyed; so, as I said, only peace and happiness reigned in Oz."

The last line belies the concept of tolerance from the left
"only peace and happiness reigned in Oz"

ChefKeith says it's about 112 octane. If it was Nascar fuel that car would be running good!!!!

Your bumper sticker made the difference.

Also, if you look good in what your screen name is, that might not have hurt either.

Awesome!

We have a Bush/Cheney sign in the window to our non-storefront office. A new client of mine had driven by before his appointment to be sure he knew where it was, and told me that the presence of that sign in the window gave him more confidence in me!

Woo Hoo!

We rented a National rental car for a week over Christmas while visiting my son in Seattle. I brought a nice W sticker and slapped it on the trunk for grins. Didn't get many...

When I get rid of my current Tahoe, the new owner can take my Bush 04 sticker off and the Bush2000 sticker as well.

So, you were going to pre-empt him were you? That is the true Bush spirit.

Thanks. The magnetic paper isn't cheap, but the customization options for 'em makes it all worth it.

So does seeing the looks on the librats' faces in the rearview mirror.

re: was flipped off three times

I never cease to be amazed at the core differences between the right and the left! I would never dream of insulting someone with a Kerry bumper sticker, not even if he had won the contest. Yet people from the other side have no qualms about flipping us off. It used to upset me a bit, now I just realize it's their way of saying "Congratulations, your man won!"

The bumper stickers are sold out. :o(

Your tag say Daytona in 48 days, but EVERYONE knows the real race has always been the Daytona 200(Mar 10-13)!

Nothing like the high banks on 2 wheels, rear wheel spinning at over 180, while coming off turn 4.

Or from just 2 years back, no speed limit on pit road. 8-10 second pits, then back on the gas full throttle, through the infield!

To paraphrase Don Meredith, "They're acknowledging that Bush is 'Number-1'."

When I see a Kerry/Edwards yard sign or bumper sticker, I pray for the occupants of the vehicle or home. Especially the children.

I once got a jump start because of my bush cheney in 2000 sticker! I seem to not mind it much when i get cut off from people with bush stickers on their car either for some reason.
