  •  I had my car keyed and the bumper sticker.... (34+ / 0-)

    slashed with what looked like a razor blade in 2008.  Living in MA, I think the republicans here are just more angry and frustrated because they rarely win anything.

    •  That is so fucked up. I just can't imagine anyone (21+ / 0-)

      on the left doing something like that.  For all that I despised W and Darth, I never would have damaged a stranger's property to "send them a message".  

      That is someone seriously in need of anger management classes.

      •  I'm so glad you wouldn't damage property -some wd (0+ / 0-)

        Atlanta is a blueberry in tomato soup; we have some conservatives in the richer northern part of the city, but many more democrats.   But as Georgians, we're not far from our country roots, and some of our liberal dems are, unfortunately, loud and physical.  I do know dear friends who are good people, albeit misguided in their political choices, who have experienced property damage and actual physical threats because they dared to post signs supporting R candidates.  I really think we should all rise about that kind of action - liberals, conservatives, libertarians, populists -- all of us!  To think of damaging the property of other American voters because we disagree.....well, that makes it seem like we can't win an argument based on principles.

      I took my daughter to the local museum a couple of summers back when she was around 2 1/2.  It was an overcast, cool day of 70F, so I left the windows of the car open about 3 inches--all four of them, for my dog, who goes everywhere with us in the car and is quite content to hang out and sleep in the back seat.  

      Anyway, my daughter and I were moseying around the museum having fun, when I heard my license plate being bullhorned over the intercom.  "What on Earth could that be about, did my dog somehow trip the car alarm?" I thought.  No, it was a short blonde woman of about 65-70 who said at the top of her lungs, "You left your dog in your car and it's PANTING!!!!"  Oh boy.  So I followed her outside to the car, perplexed, and pissed.  It was drizzling a superfine mist now, and was probably around 68F.  

      My dog was fine, and simply had gotten up to say hello to the lady and her shrill 40-something daughter, also with short blonde hair.  They had parked their huge black Suburban right next to my little car, and began barraging me with insults about leaving my dog in the car and not rolling the windows completely down.  I shit you not.  I'm not one to back down (IAL, after all), so a fairly nasty fight insued, ending with me throwing out an F-bomb, the daughter saying, "Oh, real classy," and me finishing it by saying, "Oh my yes, aren't you high and mighty, picking a fight with someone that is totally unnecessary right in front of your kids and my child in the parking lot of a child's museum."  

      They had Massachusetts plates.

      Republicans...What a nice club that is. A club of liars, cheaters, adulterers, exaggerators, hypocrites and ignoramuses. Der Spiegel
