White, Straight, Republican, Male...How else can I piss you off today?
This was a bumpersticker on a large van, complete with oversize tires, in front of me today...

Above the sticker was a smaller one: An American flag. Written above it: Pro American. And below: Anti Obama

Goddamn these people.

:mad:

1. I'm sorry Peggy, but I don't understand the intensity of your reaction.
Edited on Mon Oct-10-11 06:36 PM by slackmaster
Is it because you don't like what the guy is, the fact that he's proud of it, that he's "in your face" about it, or that he disagrees with your view of the President?

51. Yes, I appreciate your reply.
I'm sorry you are affected so badly by things you have no control over. I hope it doesn't adversely affect your health.

7. I wanted to have him see my anger...
But since he was ahead of me, and besides, my car is a lot smaller than his truck....

Well.

I couldn't.

But at least I can tell you folks!

Sounds like he succeeded in pissing you off.

21. but that's exactly the reaction he's trying to get out of you?
his sticker is basically one big "you mad!"

getting mad isn't the best way to get back at him.

31. I knew there was no way he could see me...
He was ahead of me, and much much bigger...

Posting it here has taken care of that.

18. Yep, that is the bottom line, isn't it. It's the pinnacle of selfishness. I've never
seen/heard yet a republican that wouldn't steal money out of a blind person's cup.

15. Well Peg...
I'm white...and sadly I no longer support Obama

I drive a large truck, but I have no bumper stickers that proclaim my nationality, gender, or sexual orientation...(well I do have a rainbow sticker)

I still will vote for him...is that considered supporting?

But with much less enthusiasm than before.

I've got a DU sticker too!

41. I couldn't agree more...
Several years ago, an acquaintance of mine displayed a bumper sticker that said something like "If you toucha my truck, I breaka you face."

I advised him that he was being antagonistic and inviting trouble--he disregarded me. A few months later, he and his son were attending a night football game and upon returning to their vehicle, discovered several broken windows and flat tires.

It is not wise to be the anonymous antagonist.

19. Get your own bumper sticker.....
"I'll cancel you out when I go to the polls."

I am SO SO glad that you were not able to let him see that he pissed you off...since that is exactly what he said he wanted to do and he would have gotten great enjoyment out of that.

26. This might make you happier.
I scared the hell outta some poor guy in a pickup truck last Friday. He was ahead of me in the other lane at a stop light. On his truck was an "I support the President" bumper sticker. When I drove by I rolled down my window, waved and gave him a thumbs up. I think he thought I was going to shoot him because he looked absolutely terrified (it's dangerous to have pro Obama/Democratic stickers on your car here). I made a desperate gesture towards his window and yelled, "Obama 2012!". He laughed and returned the thumbs up and yelled back, "I'm in!". He had obviously received the email from OFA. :)

There are so few of us here that bonding in traffic is always surprising...and obviously a little frightening.

A more perplexing story: On my way home awhile ago I was coming up behind a huge pickup painted in camouflage. :eyes: I could see the bumper and window were covered with stickers and thought "here we go". When I caught up to him at a light I busted out laughing. There were two of the most redneck mf's you've ever seen in this giant Ford truck, mud tires and...Obama '08 AND Obama '12 stickers. Right between the two: "Rednecks for Obama". They also had a few other stickers that were proDemocratic. I bet those two spend a lot of time explaining themselves.

32. I was run off the road by a Pro-Christian.Pro-Palin .Pro-McCain. Pro-Country First
The sticker was from 2008...

He tried to cut me off at a light, I hit my horn at him, he yelled some nasty words..

I asked him if he was still mad that The Crypt Keeper and Cruella had lost.. :rofl: I gunned it from the light, and he came flying down after me,played chicken and tried to run me into the next lane..too bad I'm a socialist Kenyan-loving Communist and put the pedal to the medal...what a loser - a ZZ top looking guy picking on a woman driving alone...

47. let's see....

entitled.... check.

entitled.... check.

entitled.... check.

wrap it all up in the flag.... check

and then add to that: i'm a racist piece of crap.

he pretty much personifies the present day Ugly American.

and the sooner it is pointed out to these types, the better. i hope his current discomfort is multiplied tenfold.

as a OWS demonstrator's poster stated, "the beginning is near". let's hope that prophesy comes true.
