The third and last images from that Ithaca vehicle. (Part 1 and Part 2)

So why did this one take me by surprise given some of the non-politically corrrect (in Ithaca) bumper stickers?

It was the “COEXIST” sticker that I first spotted.

The “COEXIST” sticker is the gateway drug to a whole bunch of trite liberal bumper stickers to follow.

But not in this case.

One thing to note — the bumper sticker attributed a statement to George Orwell probably is a misattribution:

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.”

Come gather round people wherever you roam, … for the times, they are a changin’.

We are seeing a changing of the bumper guard.

More and more readers are sending in anti-Hillary bumper stickers they see on the road.

We have been running bumper stickers since June 24, 2010, when I saw the Bumper Sticker of Change while on a walk in my then home State of Rhode Island and Provideence Plantations:

Bumper Sticker - Work Harder Obama Needs The Money

Since then, we have run over 500 posts with bumper stickers, almost all reader submitted. Scroll through our Bumper Sticker tag.

In 2012 we had a bumper sticker post almost every day due to the presidential election. Things have slowed down, but we still have a bumper sticker post just about every week. Keep ’em coming.

Here are my picks for the Best 2014 Bumper Stickers:

We published a bumper sticker or sign almost every day this year, sometimes more than one a day.  Please keep them coming, by emailing me at the address on the contact page.

Most of the bumper stickers, of course, were motivated by the elections, with a huge number of innovative uses of the “O” in the Obama logo.

I have selected some of my favorites (going easy on the campaign stickers), in no particular order.  Click over to each post for the commentary from the reader and from me that accompanied each sticker.

From Amy,

This is my car, with the bumper sticker I mentioned the other day. I ordered it after the election, feeling let down, angry and frustrated with the whole thing. Mostly, I felt disgusted with anyone stupid enough to vote for Obama.

This sticker made me feel a little better and lets me get my little dig in to all the liberal morons around here.

As you can see, I also have one taking a dig at honor students. Nothing against the students (my own do quite well enough), but I do hate those pretentious stickers! In this sticker, “rides” refers to skateboarding or could also refer to snowboarding.

In another email Amy added:

I don’t have a picture, but I had to tell you about a sticker in our neighborhood.

A few weeks before the election, someone put the ubiquitous “I don’t believe the Liberal Media!” sticker on a stop sign in our residential area. Several weeks later, someone covered it up with a taped-on, typed piece of paper that says, “Rupert Murdoch is not a liberal!!!” Just recently I noticed that another person wrote in marker on the note, “Thank God.”

It gives me a chuckle and I’m wondering what will show up next. I’d say it’s a great example of how very purple our area is.

Because one of the symbols is an Indian peace pipe.

And you are supporting someone who falsely claimed to be Indian, and who used that false claim in the most cynical ways in her career.

Every one of her claims to actual ancestry has been proven false.  Every one of them, including the ...

The final part of the vehicle in Fort Worth which is like a whole other country.  See Part 1 and Part 2.

Two views of the drivers side, so you can get the full flavor.

My favorite, near the rear, “I made the DHS list!”

From reader Jeanne:

Spotted in Fort Worth, TX today.

Check out all sides of the car.

Words escape me.

I previously photographed this vehicle near my house in Ithaca, but reader and friend T.P. Hobbit recently photographed it with a brand new baby bumper sticker on the left rear corner:

I’ve seen most of these before but not the “Criminalize Fracking” one on the upper left courtesy of the Sovereign People’s Action Network. The car was parked on the Cornell campus behind McGraw Hall.

Thanks for helping me through these difficult times.

 
 
 

 

Obama’s Speech to a Joint Session of Bumper Stickers

This vehicle looks like a preview of the one liners in Obama’s upcoming speech to a Joint Session of Congress.

Thanks to commenter Stark who writes:

I figured you’d get a kick out this one. This is one of the finer examples of what not to do to your car. I live in Cape Canaveral but I saw this in Cocoa Beach, FL.

Update:  Stark mentioned in the comments that part of the photo was cut out. I cropped it so it would fit better in the post, and at top is what was cropped out:

On Tuesday I posted a video of Andrew Klavan debunking the “War Is Not The Answer” bumper sticker, and I thought to myself, funny how I haven’t seen one of those in Ithaca.

So driving to campus Wednesday, what do I see?

 
 
 

I hate when bumper stickers make me do work

The final shot from my trip to San Francisco has a number of stickers which are not obvious.

The trite “when fascism comes to America …” speaks for itself.  But the two on either side of the license plate?  Those apparently are related to a group called the Dresden Dolls.  (Images here and here.)

And what’s with the hatred of Texas Oil?  Well, that related to California Prop. 23, an attempt to roll back California’s global warming legislation.  The ballot initiative was funded by two Texas oil companies (hence the “Texas Oil” on the bumper sticker), but the opponents rasied three times as much money and defeated the initiative.   Texas Oil haters celebrated.

Quite a long explanation for some lousy bumper stickers.

 
 
 

Bumper stickers and the people who wear them

Thanks to a reader for forwarding this op-ed by Paul Ibbetson, former Chief of Police of Cherryvale, Kansas, regarding bumper stickers and the people who wear them (embedded links added by me):

First, remove all past Election Day stickers. Nothing says “denial” more than an old, crinkled, half-biodegradedJohn Kerry 2004” bumper sticker. We have all seen the equivalent before, even on the most beautiful of vehicles, and we have all done the same thing: grunt with displeasure, shake our heads in sadness and die a little inside. Remember, you may be in a wreck while on the road, and removing an ancient, long-dead political sticker might help you avoid unnecessary dementia testing while at the hospital. The potential upsides are just too many to ignore.

Second, one political sticker on your car states your case; twenty stickers says you’re imbalanced. Also, the nature of your sticker says more about you, the vehicle owner, than your political affiliation. As a former police officer who made hundreds of car stops, I’ve seen that bumper stickers often say a lot about the character of the individual behind the wheel. Just like bumper stickers that say, “I love weed,” and “Got Magic Mushrooms?” might not enhance the quality of an interaction with the police, overly vulgar, aggressive and stupid political stickers say something about you. Remember, your mom might have to borrow that car.

Lastly, political bumper stickers have a lifespan that ends on election night: win, lose or draw. This can be hard to swallow for those that have a bumper sticker of a winning candidate now being displayed in all its post-election glory.

Sound advice, which obviously is being completely ignored by a large percentage of the population.

Bonus question:  What is the bumper sticker covered over in the bottom image?
