And all the people who had stickers about Bush? No one ever lost his job over them. The secret service never investigated anyone over them. There were no news broadcasts over them.

He should only have truthful stickers on the bumper...such as

“Obama has demonstrated the leadership ability of a marshmallow.”

This guy is part of a union that supports this government and is against any speech they do not agree with. I think it is poetic justice.

Awesome. Just great. I love his stickers...his demeanor was reasoned and measured, and the firefighters union and town officials...well, let's say someone or a group of someones did something they shouldn't have done.

His stickers weren't profane, and nothing compared to what I see up here in PRM (People's Republic of Massachusetts)

I say, MAKE THEM SQUIRM, the lousy hypocrites.

Here is what I had on my car for the better part of a year and a half up here back in 2004-2005:
(My tough conservative tomcat and NRA stickers keep the libtards away...:)


(This one earned me a middle finger from a fifty-ish lady driving a Volvo with a gray bun in her hair...an invective gesture I will treasure forever!

JoSixChip, I am as anti-union as anyone out there, but I also recognize a lot of people have to belong to a union to work. You don’t have a lot of non-union police and firefighters in some places.

I would cut the guy (and others like him) some slack...just my two cents worth...:)

Yes, but read about who is taking his place.

I guess he is one of those 91% of black people that think Obama is doing a great job, while the firefighter is part of the 66% of white people who think he isn’t doing that great.

(according to a recent poll)

Being a non-minority in Hartford was an exercise in patience and self control to say the very least when I lived there 20 years ago. Can’t imagine it today.

LOL...no, having had first hand experience with Code Pink people who take pictures of license plates at protests and post them on the Internet, I know better...:) I just photoshopped it and moved things around!

I did it because I figured if I posted the picture where a liberal could see it, I might get their hair to stand on end.

I can see it now, three liberal, global warming, Obama worshiping junior high schoolers as they look at the picture of my car:

LIBERAL1: Hey! Look at this picture of this loser conservative’s car with his Bush/Cheney bumpersticker! He even has a cat! Heh...heh...

LIBERAL2: Huh. Oh, yeah. Hey...what is that other sticker to the right?

LIBERAL1: Eh. What about the, um, like, cat?

LIBERAL2: Dunno bout the cat. JEAN PAUL! Can you come in here and look at this?

LIBERAL3: What? Oh, that? Errr...it is an NRA sticker. They all got em.

LIBERAL2: Jeez. The NRA.

LIBERAL1: (looks worried, whispers to LIBERAL2) ...uhhh...what’s nra stand for?

LIBERAL3: (scowls at LIBERAL1) What a frikkin’ idiot. What do you do all day? It means National Rifle Association. They arm all the white supremacist militia groups, mostly in the midwest, but they got some out in the west.

LIBERAL1: Uh...well, I did hear my new girlfriend’s dad say something about the NRA. When I went over to the house to take her to the mall yesterday, she wasn’t ready so I had to talk to her dad. That sucked, but then he asked me if I had ever seen a “thirty eight special” before. I thought cool...he is going to show me his old car or something. Before he could show me, though, she came down and hit him really hard on the arm and screamed at him. I was like, WTF was that all about. He was laughing at her, then looked at me and said Hey, I was just getting to know your new boyfriend. He kept laughing, and she was pissed. She said something like him doing that every time, but I just couldn’t figure out what she was pissed about.

LIBERAL3: (speaks to LIBERAL2) Gawd. What a dope. That new girlfriend of his must be a real winner. If those two procreate, global warming will have nothing on them.

LIBERAL2: Hey guys...I just noticed the license plate...it says 666 then WWW.

LIBERAL1: OMG! THEY ARE SATAN!

LIBERAL3: AND THEY CONTROL THE INTERNET!

LIBERAL2: AND THEY ALL HAVE GUNS! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

FADE TO BLACK

You get the idea...:)_
