Socialism Sucks

I made a sign to put in the back window of my car that says "Socialism Sucks." I did this because, well it does. It sucks. It is also the direction that The One is pushing this country in a big way and a bug hurry.

I sort of felt that the whole thing was just a bit juvenile though. Even when a friend at work urged me to put it on a t-shirt and promised to buy one. I had a Cafe Press Shop that I opened when I started creating a Bill of Rights t-shirt collection. (One of these days I'll get to the other eight amendments) but nothing has ever sold. Maybe if I had put some effort into promoting it? I don't know. I just wasn't enthused.

That changed on the way to work this morning. Driving up the Merrit Parkway this morning an SUV pulled along side me in the left lane like he was going to pass then he slowed down. I assumed the driver wanted to get to upcoming gas station so I slowed to let him change lanes. But he slowed too. So I accelerated.

Then he started with the horn. A constant staccato beeping. I checked my mirror to make sure there were no flames coming out of the back of my car. I slowed again so he could pull along side and he gave me a very enthusiastic thumbs up. Then he hit the gas and sped away.

I got a good laugh out of that and decided that maybe t-shirts weren't such a bad idea. And While I was at it, why not bumper stickers, buttons and magnets too.

Yeah. I took a mark-up. Go figure.

1 I'm not into t-shirts and don't have a use for them; however, the idea of a bumper sticker I could put on all my vehicles strikes me as a good idea.  I'll take 10, send me a statement; I'm a good gamble to pay up.

You might have come up with the next big hit bumper sticker, a little like the one in the movie Forrest Gump,  "..it happens".
