  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

Frustrated drivers at gas stations stick it to Biden with ‘I did that!’ decals

    I haven't seen one of those yet, but I don't always notice things that are right in front of me until someone points it out. :D

    Unless Biden is driving his car to that same gas station that they frequent (and let's be honest, he's the president, he's got people for that), and given that the kind of people who would go out of their way to do that type of thing already live in areas where it's already a majority of people who are of their same mindset.

    I think the sticker-message isn't going to find it's intended recipient.



    But I will say, nothing says "I'm full of it, and a right wing troll" quite like claiming that paying an extra $12 to fill your tank is "putting you in the poor house" and "destroying the economy", while simultaneously showing the world that you have enough excess income to go shopping for silly stickers on the internet to vandalize gas stations with.

    Some of us just like stickers in general. :D

    (Looks at nearby pile of holiday and wildlife stickers that were on sale at Current.)

    Yep, and I rip on them when they do that kind of thing too...

    Started a whole thread about it a while back
    Show everyone how terrible capitalism is with these AOC-branded $60 shirts!

    I'm an equal opportunity "offender"...when the right does something stupid, I rip on them, and I do the same for the left.

    In this particular instance, it's the right being petty (with regards to the near-negligible increase of the price of a particular consumer good)

    Let's be honest here...Die Hard Trump fans are so dead set on 'showing how terrible Biden is', they would've clung to any price increase on any consumer good to try to make the same point about how "he's destroying the economy"...it just happens to be gasoline on this occasion.

    "Can you believe the price of playing cards went up 78 cents a deck under Biden?!?!, this country is doomed!!"

    If someone is too broke to afford an extra 10 bucks for gas it means they are irresponsible with their money. Personally I like the higher gas prices - helps my investments.

    Sounds like it's more of a "donate to the AOC campaign and get shirt" type of deal. I donated $15 to something related to Bernie a while ago and got 7 stickers. I need to get a couple of these "I did this" stickers for my "collection" but I don't want like 700 of them!

    Both of those are complete fabrications.

    No, the Democrats' official store also sells stickers. Stickers are equal opportunity sticky-thingees!

    Profiting off capitalism to protest capitalism is hypocritical and also dumb. How is it dumb to use capitalism to protest high gas prices?

    Really? Democrats never complain about prices or buy political stickers?

    Even if the end result is donations to a campaign, it's still capitalistic consumerism... paying exorbitant amounts for branded merch that "sends a message to the world" so to speak.

    My point is that if you have enough spare income to buy a $60 sweatshirt (IE: a $10 sweatshirt with an AOC quote on it), or you have $24 to spend on "Biden-bashing gas pump stickers" to distribute to slap on the pumps at all of the local Sunoco stations when the clerk isn't looking, you're clearly not in a position to complain about "the disastrous effects of the economic impacts of your political rival"

    In countries where there are legitimate shortages and people going without necessities, do you think they're wasting what precious resources they have on virtue-signal swag?

    Can you show me receipts of Democrats who bought the stickers? They try to sell them but very few buy them, and the few who buy them are typically children who are too young to be registered to vote so they can't be Democrats. Stickers are for children, let's face it.

    Really. Do you have any proof of your claims? Obviously not.

    Your ignorance lies in your inability to understand (well, probably an unwillingness to understand) that AOC does not think capitalism is bad.

    From your far, far radical right-wing libertarian perch you like to take shots at other conservatives who are less radical than you as well as liberals, especially the ones you don't understand at all, like AOC and Bernie.

    Stickers are for kids? Does that include bumper stickers? I saw Biden stickers during the election.

    The higher gas prices are a direct result of supply/demand...so they're using capitalism to protest...capitalism???

    Seems kind of hypocritical as well, yes?

    Name one way that Biden could force gas prices to lower without interfering with the free markets.

    It's unfortunate that our only choices are "tap into domestic reserves" or "play nice with a Saudi Prince" in order to get reasonable fuel prices, but it is what it is.

    Your claim that Democrats don't complain about prices or buy stickers is much more unlikely and unbelievable than mine

    So you think that kids can't put Biden stickers on things? Biden stickers have some kind of magical power that if a kid tries to stick one somewhere it doesn't permit them? Do you believe they have a force field or something?
