My Bumper Sticker

[Time travel back to 2002 when I lived in Seattle and the Bush administration had hijacked the free world for the benefit of their military industrialist overlords.]  I found a website where I created a bumper sticker for my 4wd Pathfinder which read:

Over the years I received occasional compliments from fellow drivers but it wasn’t until I moved to ultra-liberal Eugene, Oregon that I experienced the most outspoken support.

One day I was turning into my favorite eatery, Burrito Boy, when I noticed a beat-up volkswagon following closely behind. As I entered the restaurant, a disheveled, old hippie rushed out of his van to catch up with me. He wanted to tell me face to face how strongly he agreed with the idea that Bush and Cheney were “meat puppets for an alien plot to extract human bio-essence.”

In 2009 I was living in conservative Grand Junction, Colorado when Obama became POTUS. Ironically, my faded and weathered sticker began to illicit honks and waves from tea party types.

In hindsight, I am thankful my wife convinced me not to display my favorite bumper sticker from the 2004 campaign:

Lick Bush / Beat Dick
