    Gone to look for America

    Gone to look for America

    A lot of readers seem to be on road trips these days.  From reader Sandy:

    Prof, am on a road trip this weekend, from Virginia to Indiana and then return via Hillsdale, where older daughter begins junior year in August.

    Along the way we are seeing some unusual and humorous bumper sticker arrangements.  Am snapping them with my phone.  In the case of attached, PRAISE DOG and Obama, the driver was a mid 60s woman by herself.

    Thank you for all of your efforts on all our behalf.

    Another interpretation might be that she is saying like herself BO is dyslexic

    Okay okay I am trying to be open minded

    This owner is obviously screaming to be heard. I would love to has him/her if he would abort puppies to manage the litter. Maybe do genetic testing to keep the strong, male, attractive pups. Get rid of the runt, female and weaker masses of cells.

    That would be a great discussion.

      You just described one of the Progressives’ early 20th century great ideas: eugenics. Another of the reasons (the foremost being the failed Volstead Act) they discarded the term Progressive in favor of the term Liberal, beginning in the 1920s.

      Obviously she is not going to abort puppies, silly. She is going to set up an affirmative action nursing schedule where the undeserved, small, unattractive and non competitive puppies will be moved to a higher nipple to make up for past injustices including, but not limited to, fetching in the rain, being forced to sit with a treat on the tip of the nose, the implications of rolling over and playing dead, being called the equivalent of a pushy mean human female, and generations of human smelly feet.

    Oh boy, Dog Only Nose has to be one of the stupidest “puns” I’ve ever seen.

    In the case of attached, PRAISE DOG and Obama, the driver was a mid 60s woman by herself.

    And likely to stay that way, I’d bet. I used to see cars like this (small foreign-brand station wagons, although usually older than this one, plastered with stickers) rather frequently when I lived in Silicon Valley. They were inevitably occupied by a lone woman past the age of fifty-five or so, judging by appearance. Bruce Feirstein wrote in his book Nice Guys Sleep Alone that “middle-aged adolescence is not a pretty thing”. Post-middle-aged adolescence is even uglier.
