So here's a story, and then I have to go to synagogue...

So I see this hospital administrator whom I've known for thirty years and he tells me that there's a surgical group who has this huge guy who used to be in one of the intelligence branches of the Federal government who is their administrator/hatchet man. This guy is 6'4"' and all muscle, shaved head and mean. Really mean. And nasty.

"So what?"you may ask...well this is "what": he drives a huge 4x4', black of course, with tinted windows, and on the back of the car, which he parks routinely in a minority neighborhood where the hospital is located, is a bumper sticker. Now normally, I never ever relate what is on the hate e-mails which I routinely receive, since it just promulgates it, but this is so frigging disturbed that I feel compelled to repeat it. Using large caps at the beginning of each word, it says:

One Big Assed Mistake, America
Vote Republican

People are actually terrified of this guy I have been made to understand. What always gives me pause is how many of these folk still work within the system of government close to or within the Executive Branch. I am just shaking my head continuously at the level of hate in this country. It portends poorly for our future.

it's a "clever" use of an acronym, but you could always play dumb and say "Dude, your bumper sticker is right on! Voting Republican IS a big assed mistake!

many of the bumper stickers that we, as Democrats, use portraying Republicans. Look at the Bush years and now with Romney/Ryan.

I agree there is too much hate and I cringe when I see stickers like that but we are guilty of same.

(Although I have to admit when I see a pro-crazy-RW sticker I have to assume the owner is on Foxcrack and might have a concealed weapon ready to use as opposed to a lefty who will just hurl brain-numbing facts. )
