Schwarzenegger-bashing bumper stickers & more
Incredibly, Arnold is ahead in the polls by keeping a low profile and acting more moderate. People seem to have forgotten what he did to education when he first got into office and seem to not even know that he was cozy with the energy executives like Ken Lay who blackmailed the state for billions. The GOP used that debt that their energy pirates ran up as the club to beat the hapless Gray Davis over the head during the recall. Then when Arnold got in office, he let the pirates off with a slap on the wrist instead of suing them for the full billions they extorted.

Feel free to print these out, and slap them on your bumper, a telephone pole, or most appropriately on the door of a toilet stall, so people will remember to flush this turd along with the rest.






Some past Arnold artwork to share with your friends (photos may link to posts with multiple images or animations):

1. Those are great!
Especially the first one.

I'd really like to see a sticker that plays up how much Ahhnold ripped off California for with his Enron deal.

:thumbsup:

3. Of course not.
I'm sure they're endorsing Ahhnold this time around too.

They also recently endorsed that bastard, McPherson.

:grr:

4. that drove me nuts! Although even worse, I'm with one of the teachers'
unions, and the other one actually endorsed McPherson so they wouldn't look like Democratic partisans. So to appear "balanced" they jeopardized our right to vote.

5. I read that a while back.
Actually, it's more sleazy than that.
One of the top people in the union has connections to McPherson.

Didn't union members get any say in whom they'd be endorsing?

6. that union is more top down than mine. We would have to vote for
something like that at our convention, or local by local.

That is the same union that 'negotiated' those education cuts with Arnold when he first got into office even though they had no right to do so--they essentially provided political cover for Arnold to pull out the long knives and stick us like a pig.

7. That's horrible.
Are that union's members trying to make changes to eliminate the top-tier's abuse of power?

At least your union gives members more authority.

8. I don't know as much about their internal workings. That union
represents primarily K-12 teachers and mine represents more college and university instructors, so it's not hard to imagine their members being more sympathetic to conservative ideas. K-12 attracts more conformist, traditional, rule-oriented people (not that everyone is like that--I've had some very smart friends who taught K-12 too).
