A Bumper Sticker I’d Like to See

 

Remember in the ’80s those bumper stickers that said, “The Moral Majority Is Neither”? Well, I think it’s our turn now. I’d like to have a bumper sticker that reads, “Social Justice Is Neither.” It is definitely anti-social with its cancel culture, and it certainly isn’t just. For all I know, there may already be someone selling them.

In my 2020 Election Anecdote post, @dong asked for proof of my Team Tulsi bumper sticker sighting. He suggested that all Ricoheads post proof of sightings for DNC candidates polling at 0% or less. This morning I saw a sticker with 2020 but couldn’t make out the rest. I was going to have to turn […]

I was behind a Sanders supporter for a while during my commute today. Two Sanders bumper stickers, two ‘I love science’ type stickers, and an ‘Old School Progressive’ with FDR’s face sticker. I’ve wondered if Leftists revere FDR as much as conservatives revere Reagan or does the appearance that history seems to begin the day […]

Of course the plural of anecdote isn’t data, but I wanted to pass along an interesting sighting. Yesterday I parked next to a car with a Bernie 2016 sticker. Interestingly, the car also had a Team Tulsi sticker. Don’t know what Bernie did to lose this person’s support or what Tulsi offers to make the […]

Dogs That Do Not Bark

 

campaign-signs-president-1In November 2012, I learned that times had changed and that I no longer knew my country. I could not believe that, after what he had done to the US, my compatriots would re-elect Barack Obama — and I was wrong.

This year, I could not believe that Donald Trump would get the Republican Presidential nomination. He was not, to begin with, a Republican at all. He did not embrace the agenda Republicans at least pretend to support. And, let’s face it, he has not lived his life in a manner that anyone with a moral sense and aesthetic taste could approve. Anyone who is surprised at the remarks he made to Billy Bush has been wearing blinders. No one of his stripe, thought I, could get nominated. But, once again I was wrong.

Nor, earlier this year, could I believe that the Democratic Party would nominate Hillary Clinton for President. She was, I knew even then, a corpse. She had no pulse. Had you told me that Bernie Sanders — who is one of the few Democrats who more nearly resembles the living dead than Hillary — would be her only serious opponent, I would have guffawed. Tell me another, I would have said. Yes, I was wrong.

The Death of the Bumper Sticker

 

shutterstock_301700210Starting the year before a presidential election, bumper stickers pop up all over my daily commute endorsing most major candidates. This has long provided a convenient way of judging perfect strangers, but this year I’ve barely seen any.

My guesstimate of what I’ve seen in the past 12 months:

  • Bernie Sanders: 8
  • Donald Trump: 2

End of list. (And I have yet to see a single yard sign.)
