I don’t usually post bumper sticker photos that have appeared elsewhere, but this one was sent by blog friend Bruce at Where Are My Keys and seems particularly ironic in light of Obama’s speech last night.

Which of the world’s great religions depicted on this version of the iconic Coexist bumper sticker seems most out of place?  (Hint, it’s not Islam, Judaism or Christianity.)

My first reaction when I saw this was, Holy – – – – !

Thanks to reader Paul who took this photo in the parking lot of a golf course in Massachusetts yesterday.

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.

Is that what you want?

I’ll give you gene pool destruction on such a vile, despicable, cowardly level that it will change the way you think forever:

Gene Pool Destruction

Now go home and pray for the survival of the species. Or not.

… be sure to wear plenty of bumper stickers on your car.

The first of many from my recent trip:

Thanks to our very own Matt Knee who spotted this “vehicle” in the parking lot of a Judaica store in California:

Thanks to frequent commenter DINORightMarie who saw this bumper sticker in Virginia.

The grainy texture adds a certain appropriate quality to the message, and the timing is impeccable, as regardless of how the debt negotiations turn out, this is pretty much what we’re left with after 2 1/2 years:

I’m a long-time reader but I haven’t registered for comments or anything; however, I was behind this bumper sticker and didn’t recall ever seeing it on your list before. Thought you might appreciate the red lights (and the bumper sticker, too).

Warms my heart, again.

Spotted by reader Will in Denver, Colorado:

The car owner obviously is operating under a false impression:

That’s what the revenue debate is about.  It’s not because I want to raise revenues for the sake of raising revenues, or I’ve got some grand ambition to create a bigger government. 

 
 
 

Mexico, Maryland, literally

… saw this one in the Sears parking lot in Cockeysville, MD… maybe the in-state tuition debate that has shone a light on the problem of illegal inmigration in the state.  By the way, I’m a legal immigrant, originally from the Dominican Republic.

Maybe they mean Mexico, Maryland, literally.  Or maybe just the lawlessness.

Now I can’t say bumper stickers never taught me anything.

I spotted this bumper sticker in Providence last night, near Thayer Street and Brown University:

My first impression was that this was some sort of political statement, but thanks to the miracle of Google, I learned that Deer Tick is an “indie” band that started in Providence, and apparently has developed quite a following, including positive a write-ups in The NY Times, a feature by NBC’s Brian Williams, and an appearance on Letterman:
