So NOW They Key My Car? (A Night Out to See National Treasure)
11/29/04 | Cinnamon Girl

Posted on 11/29/2004 10:56:54 AM PST by Cinnamon Girl

Last night, I went to see "The Incredibles" in Century City, only, "The Incredibles" was sold out, so we saw "National Treasure" instead. It was REALLY GOOD, by the way. For anyone into American history, this was well done and interesting all the way through. Nick Cage looked good and the chick who played the main chick, Diane Kruger is VERY pretty.

Anyway, it turns out while my car was sitting in the Century City mall parking garage, some nut keyed one side of my car. Why? Could it be the "W '04" bumper sticker I still have on, since President Bush is the PRESIDENT and he WON?

Some of y'all might remember the post from August: "Dennis Prager Agrees to Put Bush/Cheney Sticker on His Lexus: LET'S ALL DO IT TODAY!!!"

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1194090/posts

It was on that day that I put the somewhat discreet "W" circle sticker on my car bumper. Up until last night, nothing had happened to my car.

I still see a LOT of Kerry/Edwards stickers on peoples cars and the "W" with the red line through it. Is anyone else still experiencing post-election liberal rage?

No bumper stickers. Of any kind, for any reason.

They convince no one, and trash up the car, and risk stuff like this.

Learned this long ago.

I made a decision to NOT put stickers on my cars, fearing that dems have become nasty people.

When I was in high school during the election of '64 between Goldwater and Johnson, I put a Goldwater sticker on my Dad's car. He made me take it off with the following admonishment: "Buck, I am in business and half of my customers are probably Democrats. Do you want to chance offending half of our customers? We keep our politics at home". I've never forgot that. I do, however, contribute to my party, as my father recommended I should have done.

I have my NRA sticker among my Bush stickers too, maybe those libs really do think we are a bunch of homicidal maniacs and are afraid to provoke us. That alone is worth the price of membership.

Maybe the NRA should use that as a recruitment tool. " Cars with NRA stickers are rarely keyed."

Interesting. We ordered new stickers to put back on our car since we're seeing so many liberal sticker still around. No damage to the vehicle yet.

We saw National Treasure yesterday, and I agree... great movie! I'll need to see it again to catch all the subtle humor.

I don't think he was really allowed to have a shirt like that.

You are correct...I believe that is called "electioneering". Some clown here in New Hampshire walked into the voting area wearing a 'Kerry/Edwards' button, so I brought it to the attention of the powers that be. They made him REMOVE it on the spot. His silly smirk indicated that he had been thoroughly embarrassed in front of his Marxist comrades.

Almost forgot...it felt good. Real good.

I saw a possible mark the other day. After a car wash it didn't seem so bad. Maybe it's just an incidental scratch rather than a response to the four B/C or W stickers on the car. The last time I had my car seriously keyed was in the contract parking adjacent to the Pentagon in perhaps 1988. I was driving a turbocharged Chrysler Le Baron GTS at the time. Was it my car? Did I cut somebody off? There were no stickers. Some functional illiterate wrote "fock you" on my driver's door. Got it painted over for a reasonable price at my Chrysler dealer.

" I don't know if this is related, but most of us have replaced our Bush/Cheney stickers with magnetic support our troops/God bless America ribbons "

I live in a red county in a red state.
Before the election , my wife commented that she was getting concerned because she did not see many Bush signs on cars.
But, she said she took solace from the many magnetic "Support the Troops " stickers on cars, as we assumed they were Bush voters who valued their paint job.
It's quite a commentary on the Democrat Party that we naturally assume that a car with a " Support the Troops " or " God Bless America " magnetic sticker could not possibly belong to a Democrat.

Just curious...... which side of the care did they key?.. Did you notice it upon returning from the theater? If so they have have it on a security camera tape...... good luck.

PS some scuffs if they don't break the paint can be buffed out and not be noticeable again....

You don't know what you're talking about, sound like a liberal appeaser enabler. My car was keyed right across the "W 04" sticker (no one knows what that means?) AFTER the election. Been to DU lately? Of course, they are enraged they lost the election... after all, Diebold and Rove stole it from the liberal losers. Liberals have no morals or respect for private property. They're all hippie/radical wanna' be's.

Now that's annoying. Just when it seemed that things were settling down, too. I guess I'll have to keep mine on for a couple more weeks....

Since you were kind enough to share, here are my anecdotes:

Wednesday after the election, the (C)A.N.S.W.E.R. gang had a couple of dozen Moonbats at the corner of Hollywood and Highland, and some maroon noticed my oval while I was stuck in traffic north of the light. Got lots of "peace and love", but I was so tickled by the election results I just waved and smiled.

Since then, only two "road rage" type of incidents, but I can't tell if it's because of the oval, the NRA sticker, or the gi-normous new SUV, or my driving.

And yes, National Treasure was a hoot!

..no appeaser enabler here. I was simply saying you don't need to have a sticker on your car to get "keyed". I watched a kid (teenager) key a custom car at a cruise night once...he had no reason to give when he was immediately surrounded shortly afterward. NO REASON.. it happens
So,to say I don't know what I'm talking about...in the posters case "cinni" she don't know WHO did it...

You don't need to instruct her to "calm down". She sounded measured and calm already.

BTW, it is obvious why her car was keyed and it was the bumper sticker, whether you wish to acknowledge it or not.

Perhaps you need to "get a grip" before telling others what and why.

Someone was in the process of "keying off" my NRA sticker in a Madison,WI restaurant parking lot, when I came out last spring. I caught the little puke.

I was having a cup of coffee today reading the newspaper and waiting for my wife to finish her aerobics class. There was an obnoxious liberal in the cafe pontificating on the evils of the GOP and Bush. I live in the SF bay area so liberals predominate. Most of the patrons were nodding in agreement to what this idiot said. I could not wait to get out of there. This is what a conservative has to live with when you reside in an ultra liberal area. I am envious of you freepers who live in a conservative part of the country.

I had no bumper stickers and so I didn't have this particular problem. (My car was totaled by an 18-wheeler, with me in it. It's a long story, but everything's OK now.)

There's NO excuse for damaging someone's property like this.

And conversely, I admire your restraint as the libs pontificate their hate. I honestly don't think I could. I have, to date, seen three Kerry/Edwards stickers and they were on vehicles with out-of-town plates - just passin' through. The only vandalism problem I've ever had is folks stealing my front license plate. If they'd just ask, I'd have my husband make them one too.

Hi Cinnamon Girl,

I have several stickers on the back of my truck. One that has a Roman Dirge cartoon monkey that says: I like monkeys--just not this one (with an arrow pointing to the monkey). Several mountain biking/cycling stickers, the Misfits Skull, the Nine inch Nails Logo and one of those cut-out templates of a Rottweiler with "Got rottie?" underneath.

In October, I stuck one of those small oval W '04 stickers on the back, and after a few days, I noticed that there was some kind of weird "mass" drying on the "Got Rottie" sticker.

By weird mass, I mean some joker had walked past my car, hawked a clam on the back window. THEN, this brain trust had proceeded to 'smear' said clam in a mobeus strip pattern all over the Got Rottie? sticker. I can even take a photo of the streak marks (I never wash my car, I'm lazy).

Nothing like that has happened since. NOW, bear with me... I don't think I happened across a person who has a particular aversion to my dog breed of choice. No, I think some idiot with bad aim was attempting to spit on my dubya sticker and missed. The figure-eight streak mark is proof that it was spit and not a bird bomb. Someone had put a little elbow grease into it.

I finally took my Dubya sticker off (not wanting to incur any more liberal wrath to my truck). Cowardly, maybe, but I just don't want something worse to happen. The only sore loser rage I've encountered were a few college age punks driving aggressively on the highway -- tailgaiting, mouthing things, and then driving past me (with their Kerry Edwards stickers on their cars). I've got a toddler, and I never travel with the dog--so I don't want trouble.

ps. NICE Jason Isaac pics. He's the only reason I paid to watch Event Horizon!

lots of fun historical references AND a refreshing respect for the founding fathers.

So true! Remember when Nick Cage and the girl are in Independence Hall and he says "wow, do you realize this document hasn't been here since the founders signed it?"

Doesn't it bite though, that they can intimidate conservatives in order to create the illusion that everyone loves Kerry? I'm proud of my neighborhood, which went all out with stickers and lawn signs (some which I replaced up to three times.)

It is an absolutely HORRIBLE science fiction film that came out in the late 90s--a ghost story on a space ship. It stars Sam Neil, but Jason plays the ship's medical officer. I'd never heard or seen him before--but one small clip of *those eyes* on the commercial was enough for me to buy a ticket and sit through two miserable hours.

IMO, nobody is convinced by the messages they contain, and they just make the driver feel good.

A bumper sticker isn't an argument, it's a cheer.

It's meant to make everyone else who feels the same way feel good, and lets them know they're not alone.

I take it you believe all campaign signage is useless as well?

And Democrats have no idea why their base is walking away from them.

Chely Wright - Bumper Of My SUV

I've got a bright red sticker on the back of my car
Says United States Marines
And yesterday a lady in a mini-van held up a middle finger at me
Does she think she knows what I stand for
Or the things that I believe
Just by looking at a sticker for the US Marines
On The Bumper Of My SUV

See, my brother Chris, he's been in for more than 14 years now
Our dad was in the Navy during Vietnam
Did his duty then he got out
And my grandpa earned his purple heart
On the beach of Normandy
That's why I've got a sticker for the US Marines
On The Bumper Of SUV

But that doesn't mean that I want war
I'm not Republican or Democrat
But I've gone all around this crazy world
Just to try and better understand

Yes I do have questions
I get to ask them because I'm free
That's why I've got a sticker for the US Marines
On the Bumper Of My SUV

Cause I've been to Hiroshima
And I've been to the DMZ
I've walked on the sand in Baghdad
Still don't have all of the answers I need
But I guess I wanna know where she's been
Before she judges and gestures to me
Cause she don't like my sticker
For the US Marines
On the bumper of my SUV

So I hope that lady in her mini-van
Turns on her radio and hears this from me
As she picks up her kids from their private school
And drives home safely on our city streets
Or to the building where her church group meets

Yeah, that's why I've got a sticker for the US Marines
On the bumper of my SUV

Give the kid a bump on her website won't you?

It's for a good cause.

Didn't see you, but that doesn't mean we didn't cross paths. Yes, I broke down and got an eeeevil SUV, a great big white one, not one of the cute ones. My girls call it "the Whale", and my sister thinks it looks like the "battlestar galactica" (we're from the 70's). My wife just rolls her eyes. But it sure works great for long weekend ski trips.

I do think that the Moonbats have mostly calmed down, but there's a hard core with a really nasty case of simmering rage. The worst was right before the election though, and on election day. I was driving crews of GOTV volunteers on GOTV weekend and election day, and saw some real venom. One guy even wanted to duke it out! What a bunch of maroons.

It does on my local station. One of the Marines over there heard her sing it and wrote to tell the DJ's about it.

It was released on the 9th of this month and they played it on the morning show. It has since become the number one requested song on that station.

I can empathize. Many years ago, some misfit keyed the whole side of my car, a brand new Cutlass. It cost me over $900 to have the paint repaired. A month after the repair, someone keyed BOTH sides. I ended up leaving it like that . . .

At the time I was constantly on the road, so my chances of catching the misfit were essentially zero. No bumperstickers were ever placed on that car. To this day I don't know who did it or why it was done.

Have pity on the vandal I catch keying someone's car, because I sure won't . . .

Please share.

CG..I'll give you my own personal story, FWIW.

I displayed my Ehrlich and Bush stickers proudly up to the date of the election. After that I took them off, the reason being I was reminded what Rush once said about RATs.

"RATs in power are funny..
RATs out of power are dangerous."

On November 3, these RATs became totally out of power and without hope of getting it back for 4 long years. They were more than dangerous, they became desperate and vindictive RATs.

Like I said, for what it's worth.

Bye the bye, I hope you catch 'em.

Ten days after the election I came out to the lot at my Apt complex to find the Bush/Cheney stickers ripped off of both of my cars and a ~4" key line in one fender. Judging by the depth and force of the scratch (deep grove, metal slivers with the paint) they must have been very unhappy with the election results. At the theater, there should be some security cameras that could identify the vandals, no such luck at my apartment.

I saw National Treasure Sunday. Fun adventure movie once you get past the fiction about Freemasons as the good guys.
