    I am against repeal of D.A.D.D.D.

    Thanks to reader and commenter suhrmesa, who took this photo yesterday, and writes:

    From Boise, ID… saw this and thought of you and Ithaca.  When in Ithaca, walk the parking lot at Wegman’s and enjoy those that are “screaming to be heard” via bumper stickers.

    Still, my favorite bumper sticker seen in Ithaca:  “Ithaca, NY, 10 square miles surrounded by reality”.  Still makes me smile.

    Establish each prospects’ politics from Day One.

    Only 10 square miles surrounded by reality? How about 30 or even 76 square miles for Madtown?

    My eldest son, whom I’ve always had a close if occasionally rocky relationship with, dated a very liberal girl during the tail end of the last obama campaign season.

    He was suddenly accusing me of everything from racism to some vague thing about my desire to tear apart the fabric of America. I’m a Libertarian.

    He and my husband, who is a conservative Republican, got into a huge battle after my son became offended when he overheard a conversation between my husband and a fellow conservative that was not complimentary to obama. He still won’t speak to my husband.

    He won’t speak to me either. He assigned to me all of the talking points that the libs have against “right wing extremists”. It would have been comical if it isn’t so sad.

    He and that lib TEACHER, from a WEALTHY FAMILY, have parted ways long since. But still he can’t seem to figure out that I did not suddenly become racist just because a “black” man was elected. (Yes, he actually said that he knew I was never racist in my life, UNTIL obama ran for office!)

    I miss the boy. I often wonder how he will keep the flame of righteous indignation alight once obama is out of office.
