  1. oh golly those are ALL good.

    my sister sells bumper stickers and tshirts a lot like these on her little cafepress site (

    she's ginning one up now for Minnesota Rep. Michelle Bachmann, who has introduced a "lightbulb freedom of choice" bill in Congress. Bachmann, who believes that global warming is a myth, is trying to repeal the law that phases out incandescent bulbs for the more responsible fluorescent ones.

    the tshirt shows Bachmann, and under it is written, "world's dimmest bulb."

    ok, not subtle. but funny.

  2. These are great! I want them all!

  3. A goodly selection. I'd find it hard to choose a favorite.

  4. I like the one in the picture. That kind of says it all. :)

  5. It's a sobering thought that there was probably more democracy in Iraq under Saddam's iron grip than there is now.

  6. That bumper sticker is WILD!! Quite something .. I might mention you in one of my posts .. I think people would be inspired and laughing!

  7. “It's a sobering thought that there was probably more democracy in Iraq under Saddam's iron grip than there is now.”

    Nick, you seem a smart guy. This is a joke, right? Regardless of your views on the rights and wrongs of the 2003 intervention the subsequent institutions that have arisen in the wake of it, although not perfect and still a work in progress, are infinitely superior to what had gone before. Please tell me exactly how Saddam’s regime had “probably more democracy” than the current system?

    As recent as October 2002 Saddam Hussein ‘won’ an election with a 100% vote on a 100% turnout. In 2005 we had a real election, one in which 79% of people braved the bullets and bombs of the insurgents to cast their vote and help install Iraq’s first democratically elected administration. The country has a Kurdish President (Jalal Talabani of the PUK, a party of the Socialist International and sister party of our own Labour Party), a Shia Prime Minister, a parliamentary system coming down with parties ranging from the Communists to the Islamists, a free press and freedom of speech. Compare this to the pre-2003 regime which slaughtered hundreds of thousands of its own citizens, killed around one million during a war with Iran, annexed Kuwait, launched genocidal campaigns within its own borders against the Marsh Arabs and the Kurds, outlawed political opposition, banned non-state media and executed anyone in possession of a satellite dish or mobile phone. I cannot fathom how anyone considers this to have been better.

    As for the bumper stickers, we all know Bush is a prick. We’ve had nearly a decades worth of lame jokes. Saying “oh, isn’t the President a dumbass” hardly amounts to a profound political analysis. Or maybe it does for the Mooreist pseudo-left.

  8. Nick:
    There was no poverty, universal health care, running water, utilities 24 hours/day, a cultured society, marvellous art galleries and museums and wealth due to the oil.
    Yes they had Saddam and yes he terrorized many people.
    Today: the infrastructure is torn apart, there is no running water in many places, utilities are on an hour a day if you're lucky, there is virtually no health care and over a million people massacred and several more million refugees and let's not forget the Iraqi child prostitutes in Syria.
    And all this death and destruction for Bush and his cronies to get their hands on a sovereign country's oil.
    It sickens me.

  9. Oh, if I had a car, I would cover it in all of these bumper stickers. They do make for a good read. You can have a good laugh about them, except that they are true and that makes them so pathetic. Can only foreigners see this?

  10. Diane:
    The truth often has to be presented as humour for people to really get it.

  11. Johnny:
    Please see my reply to Nick, I think we come from opposite goal posts on this one.

  12. Irene:
    You are either up really really early or going to bed really really late.
    What makes the bumper stickers so heartening is that they are all from cars in the U.S. I truly believe that 65% of U.S. citizens really get it.

  13. Laurie:
    This is truly hard to believe, you are obviously serious, she must have a double digit I.Q. or let me guess, a born again fundie?

  14. RJA & T:
    Yeah, I'd go for the one in the picture, I saw it on a U.S. car in Newfoundland last year and had a good chuckle.

  15. “There was no poverty, universal health care, running water, utilities 24 hours/day, a cultured society, marvellous art galleries and museums and wealth due to the oil.”

    I must have read this sentence ten times now. I simply cannot believe anyone would say something as ludicrously naïve as this. This ranks up there with ‘Hitler had some good policies’ in the list of foolish things people say. There was “no poverty” in Iraq before 2003? Are you joking? Baathist Iraq was the basket case economy of the Middle East. Even with almost 15% of the world’s oil Saddam Hussein still managed to drive his country into meltdown. By the 1990s the currency was worthless. By the 2000s the state was bankrupt, in some cases even printing the Dinar on Xerox photocopiers. Exactly what newspapers were you reading over the past 20 years? The official Baath Party journal? As for universal health care, this was something that existed only in theory. In practice they did not have the money to treat their own people. Remember the Mariam Appeal? Iraq was relying on NGOs and foreign charities to heal its sick. As for being a “cultured society” with “marvellous art galleries and museums” this has some truth but then again Saddam was not responsible for thousands of years of culture in this great region. Having a “marvellous art gallery” isn’t really much good when you don’t have a vote, aren’t allowed to leave the country and could be shot for possessing a phone. And this is your concept of a cultured society, Wisewebwoman?

    “…wealth due to the oil.”

    You seem to be under the impression that Iraq was like Saudi Arabia or the UAE prior to 2003. Let’s get this clear - Iraq’s oil was not owned by the people of Iraq or by private enterprise between 1979 and 2003. The oil was the private property of the Hussein family. They did nothing for Iraq with it. Unless you count building lots of palaces as contributing to the “cultured society.”

    “I think we come from opposite goal posts on this one.”

    Opposite ends of the universe I suspect.

  16. Johnny - That's what I get for not defining my terms! By democracy I didn't mean free elections or multi-party representation so much as Iraqis being able to have a decent quality of life and a sense of order and security.

    Of course I'm aware of all the appalling brutality and barbarism of Saddam's regime (and economic sanctions imposed by the west) but what do you have now? Half the doctors have left the country, plus millions of ordinary Iraqis. Public services have all but collapsed, the sectarian carnage is massive and many Iraqis are simply struggling to survive. Surely that isn't a better society?

    But that's just my impression as a half-informed onlooker. Clearly you're much better informed than I. Thanks for giving me a few more facts.

  17. Johnny & Nick:
    The glaring truth, of course, is what on earth do these poor Iraqis (those that have not been massacred and are not on the run) have now?
    And they were asked, if I rightly remember, are they better off now than under Saddam, and the overwhelming response after the initial howl of disbelief was a resounding NO.
    We can debate democracy all we want, there is no black and white.
    No system is perfect.
    But there are markers for a civilized society and Iraq is failing on just about all fronts.
    Of course the great liberator is also failing. And hugely.

  18. Johnny Guitar was quite right when he said Iraq was in dire straits before the invasion. Years of sanctions by the US and Europe had caused suffering on an ungodly scale. Food was scarce, hospital supplies at an all time low, children died by the thousands from easily preventable diseases due to inadequate supplies of drugs. The "oil for food" program was a farce that made wealthy American businessmen even wealthier.....all down to the bully-boy tactics of his own nation, when a few years previous it had been cozying up to Saddam and arming him against Iraq. Support your nation's corrupt and evil practices if you must, Johnny Guitar, but maybe you'd best read a few independent history books of that period first, and not rely on the base propaganda churned out by your corporate media.

  19. Wisewebwoman, I like the way you are taking on the debate with the other thinking gentlemen and admire the way you do it with such conviction and knowledge and patience. I am sure I could not follow in your footsteps as well, but I am glad you are able to give such good rebuttals.

    It seems to me that some people have made up their minds and are convinced no matter what arguments to the contrary they are faced with. It's a shame that they still see themselves as saviors and not as bringers of great misfortune.

    Great job at holding down the fort!

    P.S. I am usually up very early as I have a sleeping problem.

  20. Brilliant list. Made me chuckle and then think about just how serious it all is. Thank God he can only run for two terms.

  21. MOB:
    I just hope his teddy bear (JMcC) doesn't continue the legacy!

  22. Excellent selection, WWW !
    Just a wee criticism - they're all seem a tad deja vu.

    Mine, for today, would be "NOBAMA"
