Anybody But Hillary

I have a small design business where I create mostly political bumper stickers, t-shirts, etc. Early on the Fred Thompson stuff was flying off the shelves, but for the last couple of months there has been a groundswell for the Anti-Hillary bumper stickers.

Just this week, someone in Colorado bought 20 of these oval bumper stickers. Amazing. Obviously there is an extreme undercurrent to reject Hillary for President.

With 50% negatives nationwide, it would be hard to believe that she could get the democratic nomination, but never underestimate the Clinton machine. I still think John Edwards can make a move taking on those voters not enthralled with Clinton or Obama, but we’ll see.

Of course, this is just my opinion.

Smoking Ban From the Socialist Republic of Illinois

Welcome to the Socialist Republic of Illinois!

On January 1, Illinois became a smoke free state. Now, I’m not a smoker, but this law is just the kind of thing our governor wants – more control of everyone.

I get the idea of making smoking sections/areas that will allow others in public places to not have to be subjected to the smoke. But no smoking in bars – where is the sense in that? If you don’t want to be subjected to smoke in these type of environments, don’t go there or don’t work there. Simple right. I guess not according to the State of Illinois.

Making things like this the law of the land smacks the founders in the face. This is the type of socialist policy I would expect in Communist China or the former USSR. What’s next, a ban on drinking in bars? (credit for this idea goes to my patriot father)

Of course, this is just my opinion.
