A rising tide week (Minneapolis)

Posted by    Monday, September 26, 2011 at 7:00am

Thanks to all the readers who have been sending bumper sticker photos.

One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of drivers are willing to express themselves is quite vehement terms against Obama and Democrats.  Has the fear of getting keyed or worse worn off?

Like this rear window sign spotted by reader Tammy, who wrote

This is in Minneapolis, land of the loons.  And I don’t mean the State bird, either.

I’m wondering how long this guy drove his “smart” car before the windows got busted.

When I was a litte hesitant, Tammy followed up:

Well, it’s up to you. Your site.

I thought you wanted to share what people are really feeling across the country.  And I live in liberal Minnesota, so that guy/gal has BALLS.

I’ve seen many other signs while driving through Iowa and Missouri. I plan to take more photos.

She convinced me.  It’s certainly no worse than the anti-Bush, anti-Cheney, anti-Palin, anti-Republican and anti-Tea Party bumper stickers we’ve seen here.  Why did I even hesitate?

 
 
 

The best thing about Republican primary disarray

No one can legitimately complain that the deck was stacked, there was an anointed winner, the Tea Party movement was shut out, or the candidates have not been put through the ropes and the wringer.

It may not end where we want it to end.

But regardless, we will be stronger against Obama...

I have posted numerous times before about the case of Lawrence Connell, the Widener Law School Professor who was placed on one-year unpaid leave and forced to undergo a psychiatric examination as a condition of return.

The sanctions imposed by Dean Linda Ammons were so controversial that a high profile alumnus and major...

There’s a carbon offset sucker born every minute

Thanks to reader Joe, who writes:

Spotted this in Chicago on my way to the Daley Center. If you look closely, the sticker says “This car’s CO2 is offset by terrapass.” Naturally, the window sports a Northwestern decal as well. Unsurprisingly, Terrapass’s slogan is “Fight global warming, reduce  your carbon footprint.”

Love your bumper sticker...

“Passive-aggressive whining about people who dare to disagree with you” is Jim Treacher’s latest comment here, directed at me.

Bizarre.  He’s been commenting furiously in the comment section here because I wrote a post critical of The Daily Caller’s handling of the Mike Tyson video about Sarah Palin.

My post wasn’t directed at him, or...

Rick Perry is pushing back against criticism of his debate performances, particularly the Florida debate, by arguing that we should not elect the smoothest debater:

Thanks to reader Dallas, who writes:

On vacation this week on Hilton Head Island, SC, I spotted an interesting bumper sticker collection (attached). Note the corner  missing from the Hillary for President sticker–possibly an attempt to remove  it(?).

BTW: the photo was taken in a safe manner (while stopped at a traffic light).

Keep up the great work!

Bonus question: What’s with this Palin sticker (I’m guessing it’s not a positive message)?

Benjamin Netanyahu’s full speech at the U.N. today was a masterpiece. It is available at the U.N. website.  Listen to the whole thing, it’s about 45 minutes.

Here is a clip of most of it:

Contrast it with the delusional and dishonest speech of Mahmoud Abbas at the U.N. today which included this line:

So where does last night’s debate leave us? I’d say stage 4, although not all have made it that far:

Denial √

In this stage, the world becomes meaningless and overwhelming. Life makes no sense. We are in a state of shock and denial. We go numb.

Anger √

I warned you not to pay $5 for the latest Obama dinner raffle, Warning on $5 Obama dinner raffle.  Based on past performance, as the quarterly reporting date approached, Obama would drop the price.

And sure enough, a reader forwarded me an e-mail with the $3 offer (full e-mail image below)(emphasis in original):

I listened to Mahmoud Abbas’s delusional speech at the U.N., perpetuating the Palestinians as exclusive victims narrative.

I’m listening to Benjamin Netanyahu now, a model of clarity on the threats to peace.  I’ll hope to post the videos later.

For now, it’s open time.

More from reader “Joe’s” recent road trip.

Also snapped this pic of the back of a car on the Blue Ridge Parkway on my way home.

I got a kick out of the image of the dog howling “obama”. The one sticker asks, “What are you grateful for?”

****I’m grateful we now have alternative information sources like your
blog, and others, Bill.***

cheers. If you’re ever in Rapid City, swing by & we’ll drink a beer or two.
