I also got a few chores done--putting up pictures, trimming weeds, etc. One was taking bumperstickers off the cars. That grated on me. Not the McCain sticker, that's several elections ago, and it was time to get rid of it (if I wait for somebody I like more to run I'd probably never take it off). But back in 2003 I got fed up with the "No Blood For Oil" bumperstickers all over Los Angeles and decided to answer them. There weren't any good pro-war stickers I could order, so I went down to Kinko's and laminated printouts saying "FREE IRAQ" in big letters. That's been on the cars since.
That was a very clear message before the invasion. But the problem with bumpersticker slogans is they can mean something completely different if you change the context. Now there's lots of lefties waving "Free Iraq!" signs, but they mean "Pull US troops out now" instead of "Get rid of Saddam and build a democracy", which is what I meant by it. And at this point the new meaning's common enough that people seeing my bumpersticker assume I'm using the lefty meaning (which may have protected the car in the UU parking lot, but never mind). So I scraped them off. Not that I've changed my mind, or don't want to announce my beliefs, but I don't like being misinterpreted.
Still bothers me.
