...and proud of it

*Note to Republicans: No, I'm not a enemy combatant, but I am an enemy of Bush & Co. There IS a difference...a big difference.

When J.Marquis and friend David were visiting me in October, we went in to check out the local Democratic headquarters and I got a blue t-shirt with red and white lettering/logos that says "Union County Democrat". I like to wear that around town from time to time, but my favorite might be the plain cream-colored t-shirt that prominently features the infamous Bush quote "There ought to be limits to freedom."

Well, I guess it would be an infamous quote if the media and the public paid attention to such things... but that quote causes a lot of furrowed brows, occasionally some consternation, befuddlement, non-belief, and plain old laughter when I wear it around town.

I just figure we should wear such t-shirts and put such bumper stickers on our cars while it is still legal to do so!

I write three or four letters to the editor of our local newspaper each year, usually in response to some hillbilly right-wing kookball.

My Subaru Forester isn't quite as covered with stuff as my old Corolla used to be, but it does have window decals of a punk, Darth Vader, Stewie from Family Guy and Itchy and Scratchy from The Simpsons, AND OPB (Oregon Public Broadcasting) along with bumper stickers that read "Dissent is Patriotic", a U.S. flag, "I don't have to like Bush to love America" and "Republicans for Voldemort". Once when I visited J. he told me car was starting to look like a newspaper... which caused my ego to swell with pride!

My voicing of leftist opinion here in my town probably causes anyone who notices to view me as a sort of community "black sheep", or like a "weird uncle" or a "character" or something. Oh well. So many around here wear their political opinions or their religions beliefs on their sleeves... I may as well join the fun and wear my political opinions and non-beliefs on mine.

Also... thanks a lot for the Spiderman link. I guess now that I have watched it I am offically GAY, along with my already being a leftist commie socialist pinko environmentalist amoral atheist Christian-persecuting terrorist whacko animal-rights-activist PETA ACLU kind of guy.

If you haven't checked it out, you should visit The guy who runs it has terrific stickers.

Thanks, Motomama. does have great stickers. I may buy a few.

Snave, Coming from a fellow leftist commie socialist pinko environmentalist amoral athiest Christian-persecuting terrorist whacko animal-rights-activist PETA ACLU kind of girl, I'm glad you liked Gay Spiderman.

I recently took off my "The Road to Hell is Paved With Republicans" and "Born OK the First Time" bumper stickers, and replaced them with a simple "Support Our Troops, Impeach Bush" sticker.

BTW, I love Stewie!

"Careful. It's 'gently rub the scalp', not 'scrub like you're trying to get the vomit out of a Christmas dress', you stupid holiday drunk."

Meg: "Can I be in the play, Mom?"
Stewie: "Oh yes, you can be the dumpy teenage girl who cries backstage because no one finds her attractive."

"I love God. He's so deliciously evil."

And my favorite Stewie quote:

"Am I to spend the entire day wallowing around in my own feces? A little service here."

When the war started I was in San Francisco, and they had these amazing protests, and lots of vendors selling anti-Bush items.

What I bought was a black t-shirt that has Bush with duct tape over his mouth, and it says: "The perfect use for duct tape....For Homeland Security."

I like to wear that in public. And the funny thing is that despite the fact that my countt supposed went Republican (electronic--no paper trail), I have received at least 20 compliments on the t-shirt and only one negative comment. And the person disagreeing only said, "I really disagree with your t-shirt." But I live in Texas, which is supposed to be Bush territory!!!

This election was a fraud, and we're all just letting it slide by. But then so was 2000. :(
