A reader, let’s just call him Johnny, writes:

Seen on I-287 in NJ at 12:30 PM today [Monday, July 13, 2015]. It would appear the Dems have lost the teamsters. This is NOT a Photoshop.

I was skeptical, so I wrote back:

You promise it’s not a photoshop?

He responded:

I took the photo with my Droid Turbo. If you think speaking to me personally will convince you, my cell is [xxx-xxx-xxxx]. Note that I was speeding!

Bumper Sticker - New Jersey - Trump on Truck Highway


I assume you request anonymity, in that case.


Nah! As a professor of law, I presume you can expertly state that the 72 MPH read-out on my GPS is not admissible in a court of law!

Okay, “Johnny,” looks legit, but you violated something more sacred than the law:

(I appreciate readers sending me images of bumper stickers, but please do not cut people off, engage in high speed chases, or follow someone home just to get a photo.)

But I repeat myself.

Great minds think alike. I’m about to put the same on the back of my car. Except it will read:

Not to rain on anyone’s parade, but that is a dump trailer.

So the message could be “dump” Trump.

    Rags, that is very, very clever, and good insight. Considering the tarp is down, it could be covering the first word.

      Just realized the “tarp” is transparent. I guess the “dump” is intended to be understood.

        But that would make the driver a Republican!

        You’re over-analyzing…..unless Donald owns some dump trucks and the employee is…. NEVERMIND!

It could have been “Tr-um-ka” but it wasn’t. Maybe Trump’s moxy has crossed statist lines

Private sector union members, including teamsters, have a crisis of selfishness regarding illegal immigration.

On one hand, unions need government to ignore picket line violence, to require “prevailing wage” for state and municipal work, and to in general compel wages, benefits and pensions that the free market would otherwise refuse.

On the other hand, the flood of low wage illegal immigrants is much more a threat to union jobs than white collar types.

The smart union guy understands the latter overwhelms the former. This teamster with his dump trailer figured that out.

BTW, I have it on good authority that doing 72 on that stretch of the 287 autobahn is life threateningly slow.

Trump is a large employer of union workers. He develops properties in many Dem strongholds.

Blue collar workers haven’t been staunch Democrats in over a generation.

The difference in political bumper stickers on SUVs and pickup trucks in Massachusetts is stark.
