    you think because someone has put bumper sticks on their car..and again their car...this empowers YOU to put something on their car...it does not.

    i don't know why the population of america today's thinks it has rights to do things with other people's property....

    if we left other people and their property alone, we would have less problems in america.

    Dude.....there is a HUUUUUUUUUUUUGE difference between damaging someone's car or even defacing bumper stickers and leaving someone a note. Sorry....but you aren't going to convince me or most people that leaving a note on someone's car somehow causes irreperable harm to the vehicle. It comes down to maturity. If you feel mature enough to express a political opinion, more power to you, but be prepared to be countered on it. I would never leave the type of note that the OP refers to saying "You're an idiot", but I might leave a note pointing out the facts of why the message expressed is not entirely accurate or completely incorrect. I used to have a "George Bush is a Lesbian" bumper sticker on my car (25 years ago). I would get all kinds of notes many of which we humorous and made me laugh, several which were so completely over the top angry...which made me laugh and a slew in between. It never bothered me in the least because I kind of expected that if I expected people to read by point of view....I would open myself up to theirs. I reiterate....If you are so emotionally upset over someone posting a note on your car, perhaps expressing yourself in the bumper stickers is something you need to rethink. Its probably not worth the emotional aggravation that it causes you.

    dude.....you are not empowered to mess with others peoples' property......if you left a note, or spit on his car....

    in putting bumper stickers on car, that person is exercising a right.......you or anyone else, cannot exercise a right over his rights.

    the lack of respect for property is the largest reason we have problems in the world.

    Seriously dude....I have a hard time seeing how leaving a note on someone's car, that causes ZERO damage to the vehicle displays any "lack of respect" for property. Seems to me that what you are REALLY advocating for a shouting an opinion to the world and not having to live with the consequences. Typical of the right-wing view.....which is much more of a problem than leaving a note on a car that causes zero damage, i.e., the lack of accepting responsibility for one's actions and expecting to be free of consequences when "exercising free speech rights"....

    Reminds me of a t-shirt that I saw the other day, which was probably the most offensive t-shirt I have personally ever seen. It said "Jesus is a _____" (Four letter C word for female genitalia). I'm not overly religious but I thought the shirt was completely disrespectful, vulgar and flat out rude. I thought to myself....sure, the guy has every right to wear that shirt, but he's an idiot for doing so...he's going to end up with a fist in his face or worse.....hey.....express your opinion all you want, but don't expect to be free of the consequences for "Exercising that right".

    Political bumper stickers are like political Facebook posts.

    It's a bad idea 99% of the time. At least you dont have to sit in traffic for 30 minutes staring at someone else's opinion succinctly explained by mis citations of famous dudes.

    You, and those like you, are the 'consequences' we all have to live with, huh? Are you ready for the consequences of messing with someone elses property?

    Absolutely. I accept the responsibilities for my actions, if someone gets emotionally upset because I leave a not on their car, I'm ready to deal with their insecurities and emotional problems....absolutely.

    right wing view?.........this is imbecilic

    it is not exactly the leaving a note that is the problem, it is the idea, because someone does something that makes you angry, this somehow gives you a right to respond crossing into his rights. which i am currently aruging in anther thread, where people think they have a right to act against a person, because he offended them, ...while own his own property.

    i have a right to free speech .....as you do also,......but you don't have free speech using a person's car as your vehicle of communication of anyone property for that purpose.

    your saying "it causes zero damage"...you don't see hows its a lack of respect........i don't think you would like anyone using your property, as a vehicle for something negative against you.

    you would find if people respected the most basic of all property, a large percentage of problems in america would disappear
