From Linda in Tennessee, taken in late December at the Sportsmans Grill, Franklin TN, sent with the note:

Mine is still not equal to Air Force One and Air Force Two jetting off to Hawaii for the tenth vacay of the year.


What makes this presidential election different from all other elections?

In all other elections we just vote.

In this election we vote bitterly.

Call Scott Walker and thank him

From reader John:

I’ve been reading and enjoying your blog for a couple of years now. I particularly look forward to the wack job liberals and their off the wall bumper stickers. I live in WI and came across this vehicle which shows the right side can get wild with the stickers too. Of course, they have a far more meaningful message that is coherently delivered. 🙂 Anyway, I particularly love the Santa one in light of the Walker recall mania. It makes about as much sense.

Thanks for the great blog.

Remember, the recall election is June 5.  You can donate at Gov. Walkers website.

Sarah Palin also issued a call to help, As Goes Wisconsin, so Goes America:

I look at the far Left’s assault on Wisconsin and I say, “Are you kidding?” As an outsider … I join millions of Americans watching the political shenanigans in Wisconsin. I am torn between just chuckling at these radical liberal yahoos trying to oust an intelligent administration that is fulfilling its promises, or raising a fist in disgust at people sitting on their thumbs while Governor Walker and Lt. Governor Kleefisch get thrown to the wolves.


Isn’t that Obama’s economic plan?

Yes it is, except vacation comes first.

From fellow Central (Upstate) New Yorker Fred:

I am a fan of your blog.

I also enjoy the seeing bumper stickers from around the country. How about one from our backyard? I saw this one on a Prius at the Liverpool, NY YMCA. I was walking at the time.

There is hope and change in CNY.

Feeling a little unloved these days, are you?

You have nothing to be ashamed of, you can’t help being who you are.  After all, no one would chose to be that way in this society.

From reader Michael, his very own “message board”:

This is the bumber sticker message board I run in NC. I either get a thumbs up or a middle finger…:)) Always looking for new ideas…


Summering on The Vineyard, wintering at Zuccotti

So proud!  Can’t wait to tell all the summer friends on Martha’s Vineyard how Amber confronted the fuzz at Zuccotti Park, just like we did at Columbia in ’68.

Thanks to reader Joe, who writes:

Saw this bumper sticker this morning while cycling through Nyack NY, a community made up of many transplanted New Yorkers from the Upper West Side.


Gas pump Post-It revolt reignites

Posted by  ▪  Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 7:00am 3/28/2012 at 7:00am

From reader Tim, who writes:

Was on pump in Wilmington NC earlier this week.

Looks like

No new oil from anwr, east coast, the gulf. No pipeline from Canada

$4 gal

Thanks Obama voters

I can’t imagine that signs like that aren’t popping up all across America.

Looks like Tim is  right, these are popping up all over the country:

Prompted by social media, some people are now affixing Post-It notes to the gas pump when they fill up, with messages like this one reminding anyone who reads it just how much the cost of gasoline has skyrocketed since Obama became president.

It remains to be seen if that effort will truly gather steam. But if it does, it could be a game-changer in the campaign.

Unlike the astroturfing Media Matters Twitterers who make a small number of people seem like a mass movement because they can hit a “send” button all day long, this is one-at-a-time, hand-to-pump combat.

Here’s some good advice:

Have fun.  Put a sharpie and some Post It notes in your car and go to town.

Update 3-29-2012: Reader Barbara sends along the following image of a Post-It she places on store shelves and “on the pump every time I gas up”:


Best is the Worst

This has some great ones, including a take off on the Coexist sticker, and a “You are not entitled to what I have earned” sticker.  But the best is the WORST.

From reader Tim:

I snapped a shot of these in the lot at Best Buy, in Minnesota, no less.


In the future, everyone will be the 99%

so long as they put a 99% bumper sticker on their Saab.

From reader Roxeanne:

….because nothing says “I feel for the little guy” like driving a $45,000 convertible.

Sorry that my on-road photography is so bad. 🙂

Can’t miss what you never had.

From reader Jim, who took this photo in a Publix parking lot yesterday in Lake Mary, FL (suburb of Orlando), and notes that the license plat “kind of puts a nice twist on the anti-obama message.”


Um, excuse me, haven’t you forgotten someone?

I mean, you know, the guy who made the gutsiest call and most audacious plan in the past 500 years.

From Linda in Tennessee, who spotted this vehicle at Macy’s in Frankin, TN:

It’s really good to see you once again.

From reader David:

Haven’t seen this one on your site, yet. Spotted in Raleigh NC this weekend, from the passenger seat, of course.


‘Defeat Obama’ sign draws ire of Obama mega-fundraiser, mega support from readers

Posted by  ▪  Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7:00am 3/22/2012 at 7:00am

Reader IGCBlogger sent an e-mail with the subject line “not a bumper sticker” and wrote:

Prof: Sorry I’m not a particularly good photographer, but this says “Defeat Obama in 2012”. I took it a few days ago in Sarasota, FL, on Tamiami Trail, a major thoroughfare in the city.

Here is some background info:http://sarasota.patch.com/articles/city-responds-to-sign-controversy

The background is that a Florida investor plans to install 10,000 signs around the country with the same message: “Defeat Obama in 2012.”

As the Sarasota Patch reports, when the first sign went up at a property the investor just bought in Sarasota, it incurred the wrath of an Obama mega-fundraiser:

It’s big, and it has the words Obama and 2012 on it, but what the “Defeat Obama in 2012” sign isn’t is an election sign, according to Sarasota, Florida’s city attorney…

However, Caren Lobo, a Democratic fundraiser and wife of an Obama administration official, wrote to Mayor Suzanne Atwell and the city commissioners expressing concern for the negative impact this sign could have on the City of Sarasota. As noted in the public records, Lobo says, in part, “The sign posting is the beginning of a national movement and Sarasota will be the vanguard. And it seems to a lay person like myself as if the logic to get to a legal approval of the sign has tied itself in knots. How unfortunate to put the city in a position to be used like this.”

Lobo is no stranger to the political scene. She and her husband Dick Lobo hosted First Lady Michelle Obama in January at their Sarasota home for a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s campaign.

Dick Lobo is the director of the International Broadcasting Bureau, which oversees the U.S. Government-produced news site Voice of America. Dick Lobo was recommended for the position by Obama and was confirmed by the Senate.

Government media watchers are speculating if Dick Lobo could be appointed by Obama to fill a vacancy in the Broadcasting Board of Govenors, following the January fundraiser.

The Patch ran a reader poll which, as of last night, showed the following public response:

This is just the first of 10,000.  I think the investor who is paying for the signs is getting his money’s worth.

From reader Stephanie:

In case you have not seen this bumper sticker.. My younger cousin took the picture in Anthem, AZ and agreed to let me send it to you. Also, thank you for the work you put into the blog. I have greatly enjoyed reading it for the past couple years.

I’ve had readers follow people to get the a bumper sticker photo before, but this is a first.

From reader and commenter vonbeck2:

I followed this SUV into a Chick-Fil-A in Slidell, LA to get this picture. When i saw it I thought the pres just started laughing at Hayes, but we have been laughing at him for much longer.


Good doggie

From reader Tom:

I’ve enjoyed your blog for some time now Mr. Jacobson. Born and raised in western and central NY, I’m well aware that you’re something of a “unicorn” in Ithaca! Anyway, I spotted this sticker on a car outside a diner in Latham (Albany). It seems appropriate to have it on the side where you can view the sticker and the dogs at the same time. Cheers!
