They can’t handle the glass

They can’t handle the glass

This bumper stick disproves that bumper sticker “I think, therefore I’m liberal.”  Because the person who drives this car proves just the opposite.

Thanks to reader Ken, who writes:

Saw this bumper sticker today in suburban Kansas City (on the Kansas side) and snapped a pic. I thought it should read, “Republicans bought the glass and filled it. The Democrats want to give it to someone else.”

Conservatives think the glass is half full. Democrats think the glass is the product of a racist conspiracy.

Conservatives think the glass is half-full and can not only be filled to the top, but that other glasses can be created and filled. Each glass resulting in more glasses being filled.

Liberals and their assorted fellow travelers think the glass was unfairly obtained and water should be taken from it at a rate higher than it can be refilled. If the water is filled from another source, it is at the expense of “working people”, failing to notice if the glass is not filled from another source, it will go dry and there will be no water.

Oh, yeah….the source of water has to be cut off to protect the Delta Smelt.

The bumper sticker is incomplete:

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs,
just because they have a receipt that
says they paid for it.

Conservatives think that the glass is half full, but ready to be filled to overflowing – if we work hard and let individuals thrive. Liberals think the glass is theirs, the contents is theirs, and anything that anyone wants to put in the glass is theirs.

It’s not our money. It’s not our property. It all belongs to the government. To them. How much they let us keep is up to them.

Right next to that one needs to be…

Therefore I am a Democrat”

Shelly Burman said that you could always tell a University of Chicago student because he would hold up a glass of water and say, This is a glass of water, but is it a glass of water, and if it is a glass of water, why is it a glass of water. And eventuality he dies of thirst.

Democrats believe that the glass and its contents belong to the Government
Republicans believe the glass and its contents belong to the people who own it or earned it.

Democrats pass laws to divide the half glass, and regulate usage.

Conservatives let them have the glass, then raise cattle, and distribute milk and beef to feed the world.

Democrats complain that they are profiting too much, and causing global warming, and pass laws that we drink only half glasses of regulated and taxed water. White males are required to drink last.

Conservatives form the tea party.

Democrats think there is only one glass that has to be shared.
Republicans fill their own glass to take care of their own family and share it voluntarily with those whi need to learn how to fill their own glass and just want the greedy democrats to keep their hands out of it.

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Libertarians think the glass is twice
as big as it needs to be.

A Democrat is someone with so much compassion that
he’ll give a poor person the shirt off your back.

Democrats think your glass is half full.
They’ll take it from you to fill it … and drop it.

it is not whether the glass is half full or half empty: i want something entirely different in the glass.

Democrats can’t be trusted with a glass – they’ve dropped and shattered every one they’ve been given. Only give them sippy-cups from now on. Once they’ve got that down, give them a plastic cup, then work upwards from there. And of course you never fill their cup more than half-full, because you know they’re going to spill…
