    So this means you’re voting for?

    So this means you’re voting for?

    Let me guess, you still will vote for The One because this bumper sticker was pre-2008, right?

    Spotted in my neighborhood in Rhode Island, on the same vehicle as in Thursday’s post:

    I’ve never been comfortable with the fact that people can make a good living off of war, but then again, in our area this is treated as “good news”:

    Oshkosh Truck gets $904M FMTV order

    “The Oshkosh-based specialty truck manufacturer now has orders to supply nearly 26,000 FMTV trucks and trailers after the latest contract from the U.S. Army’s TACOM LCMC group in Warren, Mich. Oshkosh is transitioning to production for an estimated $3 billion, five-year contract to supply the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles (FMTV) to the U.S. military.”

    And Oshkosh Truck has 2,750 union employes:

    Oshkosh union rejects one-year extension

    “The company is building thousands of military vehicles. The work has sustained jobs at the truck manufacturer and at its suppliers, including companies in the Milwaukee area.

    Oshkosh’s business in recent months has depended on billions of dollars in sales to the U.S. military.

    People have come from as far as Detroit to work at the truck factory, which is thriving on government contracts, Graves said.”

    More good anecdotal news from my office. I mentioned the gay Democrat and 2008 Obama supporter who said there is no way he will vote for Obama in 2012.

    Last night I was working with a Filipino lady with whom I’ve worked on occasion. We joke around well (as I can do with 95% of my coworkers) and I playfully asked, “Hey, you’re not going to vote for the incompetent empty suit again, are you? Fool you twice, shame on you!”

    She smiled and said she’d learned her lesson. She said she’s going to vote Republican in 2012 or, if she doesn’t like the GOP nominee, stay home.

    Another 2008 Obama voter makes the 0% chance-I’ll-vote-for-Obama-in-2012 Pledge.
