So this means you’re voting for?

Let me guess, you still will vote for The One because this bumper sticker was pre-2008, right?
Spotted in my neighborhood in Rhode Island, on the same vehicle as in Thursday’s post:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
And the answer is …?
That would be a Rand Paul type. Anti-war, fiscal conservative.
But…..in Rhode Island?! I would never have thought it!
Oops! I should have said *Ron Paul. *sigh* too much late night blogging, I guess. 😉
Notice the anti-war protests have ceased, the GITMO protests have ceased, Cindy Sheehan is nowhere to be found. I guess all is well.
“‘Compromise’ is always in the direction of bigger government, more spending and greater debt.”
I went to the website on the bumper sticker to see who these guys are.
They are a “community organizing” organization, started sometime in 2010. Their goals are to promote peace and social justice. They seem to have quite a large following of Union-type groups, too.
My guess: Obama’s Stimulus monies went to start this group. They are a non-profit community activist org. who is anti-war and for the “worker.” In other words, a Commie front group sucking our money out of the hands of China, after crossing the palms of Tax Cheat Turbo Tax Timmy, to line the pockets of the Dem leftists.
Same old. Same old. Or should I say, “Same as it ever was…..same as it ever was…..” 😉
I’ve never been comfortable with the fact that people can make a good living off of war, but then again, in our area this is treated as “good news”:
Oshkosh Truck gets $904M FMTV order
“The Oshkosh-based specialty truck manufacturer now has orders to supply nearly 26,000 FMTV trucks and trailers after the latest contract from the U.S. Army’s TACOM LCMC group in Warren, Mich. Oshkosh is transitioning to production for an estimated $3 billion, five-year contract to supply the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) to the U.S. military.”
And Oshkosh Truck has 2,750 union employes:
Oshkosh union rejects one-year extension
“The company is building thousands of military vehicles. The work has sustained jobs at the truck manufacturer and at its suppliers, including companies in the Milwaukee area.
Oshkosh’s business in recent months has depended on billions of dollars in sales to the U.S. military.
People have come from as far as Detroit to work at the truck factory, which is thriving on government contracts, Graves said.”
More good anecdotal news from my office. I mentioned the gay Democrat and 2008 Obama supporter who said there is no way he will vote for Obama in 2012.
Last night I was working with a Filipino lady with whom I’ve worked on occasion. We joke around well (as I can do with 95% of my coworkers) and I playfully asked, “Hey, you’re not going to vote for the incompetent empty suit again, are you? Fool you twice, shame on you!”
She smiled and said she’d learned her lesson. She said she’s going to vote Republican in 2012 or, if she doesn’t like the GOP nominee, stay home.
Another 2008 Obama voter makes the 0% chance-I’ll-vote-for-Obama-in-2012 Pledge.
