"To the Person I Gave the Finger To Today"
The DUmmies are angry people, and it doesn't take much to set them off. Even when they have achieved their goal of controlling the government, they are still angry. Hey, the sun could be shining and the birds singing and it's 72 degrees outside, and they'd be angry that some person somewhere isn't being taxed enough.
One way to trip a DUmmie's wire is to exercise some free speech around them--say, in the form of a bumper sticker they don't like. That's what happened and what is recounted in this THREAD, "To the Person I Gave the Finger To Today." It seems that DUmmie IdaBriggs took umbrage at a bumper sticker--like the one you see above--and she let the person in the offending car know about it! This from the First Amendment, Peace, Love and Tolerance™ crowd!
So climb in and buckle your seat belt, as we take a ride down DUmmieland Drive, in Road Rage Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, thinking about putting a "If You Can Read This, You Must Be a Republican" bumper sticker on his car, is in the [brackets]:
To the Person I Gave the Finger To Today
[Like that person is really going to be reading your post! Well, maybe here on DUmmie FUnnies. . . .]
Yes, I saw your bumper-sticker, and yes, I honked to get your attention . . .
[. . . and yes, I made a fool of myself.]
to make sure you saw my open-the-window-stick-my-hand-out gesture of disrespect.
[A DUmmie with a hand out. Typical.]
The fact I was driving my mother back from an appointment (she's been sick) didn't stop me. . . .
[No wonder your mother's sick!]
if I was a different person, I would be apologizing and regretting my actions.
[But . . .]
[How'd I guess?]
You are a contemptible human being, and I'd do it again. I metaphorically spit in your general direction, you worthless piece of excrement.
[Feel the love!]
The bumper sticker read: "There are Americans, and There are Liberals."
[Sticker shock! Outrage! Hate crime! . . . Now, IdaBriggs, let's see what your fellow DUmmies have to say . . .]
These "look at what a bad-ass I am" responses always smell fishy to me.
[Yes, you DUmmies have been known to fictionalize these "Encounters with a Rethuglican" posts before. IdaBriggs responds . . .]
I do . . . have a bit of a snide attitude toward "certain types" of people, and once flipped completely off the deep end at a bunch of abortion protesters who were throwing up the "cut up dead baby pictures".
[If you believe in abortion, Ida, what's so bad about cut-up dead babies? They're just excess tissue, after all. You should be THANKING those picture-holders for showing how safe and healthy reproductive choice is! . . . Now back to the other DUmmies . . .]
i think giving the finger and saying "f*** you" is a pretty mature response. . . .
[Madder 'n Maturity.]
the bumber sticker is so like Nazi germany
[Two minutes, Godwin's violation!]
I would insult the f***ers too, in front of my 2 year old or my 60 year old mother.
[The family that profanes together, remains together.]
Sometimes the stupid goes over the top. . . .
[Or out the window.]
My only concern is for your safety.
[My only concern is for your sanity.]
You were testing out your social finger on pond scum. . . .
[In the Finger Lakes.]
these stupid f***s need to understand that not everyone is operating at a single digit IQ level.
[IdaBriggs's IQ told her to operate with a single digit.]
I might have abhorred the Bush administration, but I never said that they hated their country or that they weren't American.
[OH, REALLY??? We've got eight years of evidence to the contrary!]
I applaud your reaction, even if it might not have been the classiest reaction.
[Stay classy, DUmmieland!]
Are you 16? Or just haven't developed past that level of maturity? FTLOF people wonder why there is road rage. . . .
[You say "FTLOF" and you're going to lecture people about maturity??]
Sometimes we just react!
[It's the DUmmie Way!]
Good job Ida.
[We salute you! . . . Back to Ida for a moment . . .]
he got my goat. . . . I still think he's an ass.
[It's a barnyard out there!]
You acted stupidly and accomplished nothing.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!! UP YOURS!]
Personally, I don't give a sh*t if anyone thinks I'm "un-American" because I'm a liberal since such staunch nationalism is pretty wack to begin with. I'm an American because I was born here and always lived here through no choice of my own, and quite frankly, I'd give my left tit to get the hell out of this f***ed-up embarrassing country and live somewhere civilized where I wouldn't have to deal with such ignorant sh*tstains like Bumper Sticker Dude and wouldn't be expected to wear the American label as though it were some kind of badge of honor rather than a scarlet letter which is closer to reality.
[May we question your patriotism NOW?]
I felt the need to jump in and say, "You go girl"!
[You go ballistic, girl!]
There are some real Grade D Buffoons on here lately.
[D is for DUmmie.]
Congrats! You proved that a dipsh*t with a bumper sticker is all it takes to get you frothy. Doesn't really reflect well on you.
[Yes, congrats, IdaBriggs! Hee! Hee!]
It's time to grow up now. . . .
[Let's not and say we did!]
You really need to learn some self-control. The anger management classes suggested by a couple of other posters would be a really good idea.
[Dr. Buddy Rydell is IN!]
I highly doubt you would give the finger to a fellow diner at a restaurant, or some guy in a bar. . . .
[Oh, don't underestimate Miss IdaBriggs!]
I recently told my boss "f*** you, f*** your school," slammed his door and gave him the finger. My students protested on my behalf because the administration is doing some really underhanded sh*t to revoke my contract early.
Does anyone else even call themselves liberal anymore? I hear progressive being used all the time. . . .
[OK, then, let's try this: THERE ARE AMERICANS AND THERE ARE PROGRESSIVES.]
I am a liberal, and a socialist
[Somehow I believe you!]
Sometimes I want to just put a sticker on my car that says "f*** you" to save me the trouble of having to give people the finger all the time.
[Heck, get a Bat-signal or something! Flash it up in the sky!]
Unrec for endangering and upsetting your mom.
["Unrec"?? It was almost a CAR wreck!]
I'm amazed at how many here are apparently living their lives in a paranoid bubble.
[Where have you been?? Wake up and smell the DUmmieness!]
