Dumbass of the year, Texas edition

Bumper sticker on a Texas pickup truck: "Capitalism rocks! Socialism sucks!".

Seen in a government-run socialist rest area (which sucks?) alongside a government-operated socialist Interstate highway.

  1. I always suspect that people like that don't really even understand what socialism is. I was talking to a crazy relative over the holidays and he seemed to think that the only kind of socialism that exists is a totalitarian soviet style planned economy. Pointing out that things like the schools his kids attend are also socialism didn't matter. I had to give up when he went off on a rant about SSI. Yes SSI, the program that keeps disabled people from being completely destitute. Ugh.

Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
