There’s not a lot that makes me angry.
Oliver “Shiny” Blakemore

YES! YES! A MILLION TIMES YES! Finally, someone who gets it. I’ve long held the belief that a bumper sticker is not an innocuous statement of free speech, but more an intellectually vacuous, “this is what I think” surmised in a handful of words; a clear “here’s my opinion, whether you wanted it or not and it’s pretty darn terse”; the moral equivalent of knocking on someone’s door and bellowing ‘Don’t mess with Texas’ when they answer and then running away before they have a chance to respond. Essentially, taking advantage of a captive audience, that you did not earn and having nothing of substance to say.

As an old friend once mused, ‘a bumper sticker is a substitute for a personality’.

BTW, I’m a proud parent at child at Buffnuh Middle School.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
