    It's soooo easy to play with Democrats. I went salmon fishing with a buddy of mine this morning. (Seattle area.) My minivan has a small W-04 sitcker on the rear window but this morning I added a car-window Amercican flag with a "John Kerry-Betraying America Since 1971" sign underneath it. (Got the idea fom another thread here - thanks!) Yes, my intent was to rile up some of the local Dems and see if I could incite some road rage. Worked like a charm.

    Sure enough, a guy in an old beat-up BMW 320i just couldn't help himself. He first pulled up alongside us and showed us the Kerry button on the lapel of his coat. My friend pointed at him and laughed. Then he stayed alongside us for a few blocks honking and yelling something. We couldn't tell what he was yelling and couldn't put down the window for fear of losing the flag.

    The guy just could not control himself so he then pulled in front of me and slammed on his brakes - I guess politics takes precedence over highway safety.

    A few blocks later, at a stoplight, he just HAD to leap out of his car to come back and confront us. I rolled down my window and started laughing at him as he came back to talk to us. I was just waiting to see what he had to say and couldn't beleive what he did say: "What about Iran-Contra?" HUH? I really had no response as his statement seeemd so damn stupid to me that it stunned me. I told him it was a free country and he could vote for a traitor if he wanted to.

    After that, the light turned green and he got back into his car. I didn't follow him or worry about it, just had a good laugh with my fishing pal at how stupid it was of him to start blathering about Iran-Contra.

    We're going pheasant hunting tomorrow morning and will be out looking to aggravate some more Kerry supporters to the point of irrationallity. Should be fun. (I secretly hope someone tries to threaten us with a weapon as we'll have two 12 gauge shotguns with us. - Unloaded, of course.)

    That is hilarious Duck! Some folks are just like that, especially the neo-liberal brownshirts.

    I wish (well in a way) I could do that here in TX; I display pro-Bush and anti-Kerry stickers on my car too. The only feedback I receive is positiveĀ…God bless Texas.

    I'm on a college campus and I don't want my car vandalized. Sorry.

    It's kind of sad, but this made me think of that highway scene in The Beverly Hillbillies. The movie with Jim Varney, not the tv show.

    "That's real nice. This here's what I carry."

    Hey Duck where are you in WA? I'm right in Seattle and the most I do is fly just the flag on my dash inside my car. That is even pretty unusual as most everybody here quit flying the flag pretty quickly after 9-11. But at least I can get away with it without having my car vandalized or getting road raged. You can bet that pretty much anyone who flies the flag is Republican. There are Kerry signs everywhere but not a Bush sign in sight.

    ps: you should be OK if you're out hunting. not a typical liberal pastime. :salute:

    Montlake? Nice area. I'm in W. Sea. Maybe I'll get a sign and cruise down Alki with it. :tank:
