    just curious. i got another link to those morons who put the "i'm changing the climate" stickers on SUVs. i don't know anyone that has been "tagged" as they say. always wondered if anyone here has.

    i wish people that think irrationally like those idiots couldn't breed.

    First I've heard of it. Gotta say, catch anyone doing it, I'm gonna lite up a smoke blow it in their faces and see if they can run faster than I can reach my baseball bat. Gotta say though, I'd love to have one of those stickers. I'd find someway to highlight so everyone could see what a big polluter I am.:D

    I haven't caught anyone doing that to mine, especially on campus since there are so many rednecks at MSU. Stuff like that doesn't fly in the south. However, I did catch someone trying to steal the drawbar and ball from my trailer hitch. I seriously though about cutting his balls off.

    that'd be me! damn that's pretty funny! we bought the place in june 2001. i feel young for the place, but oh well. most of folks think we are the kids and probably wonder where our parents are.
    you know the dude with the lifted white jeep cherokee? or the guy (i think his name is jason too) with the white frontier?

    Ok, I could see putting it (not applying it) ont he truck somewhere, so I could look at it, and either put it on myself or throw it away. I think if I was pissed by it, I would see it as defacing my property... Hmm, maybe I could take them to court and actually win... You never know, people win stupid cases all the time... I do like the link that says "Sue this website"

    How about the rubber and plastic used to make the sticker? Doesn't that just pollute our land for like the next trillion years? And I bet those tickets aren't made from 100% recycled products, which means trees are being cut down to make them, which changes our climate. And do those guys ride bikes or drive electric cars (which are prolly recharged by a coal burning power plant) to get from place to place to put those things on? I bet with all that driving, they pollute more than my SUV trip to work and back!
    My philosophy on these idiots is simple: He without sin shall cast the first stone! If any of these dipsh1ts could convince me that they don't hurt our planet in any shape or form, then maybe I will listen to them for a minute, but to go around vandalizing vehicles is just flat stupid.

    heh, I read the rules of engagment and i quote...

    "Our Rules & Guidlines for Successful and
    Ethical Big Game SUV Tagging:

    1. Only tag the big ones. The Ford Expeditions and Excursions (I avoid the Explorers), Chevy or GMC Suburbans
    --end quote

    What the Heck? My explorer isnt worhty of a tag? That upsets me... I always thought I was doing my part to pollute and destroy the earth!

    Soundguy01tx - Well, I think the other website people will go for you... They don't like anyone I think... According to a negative response, they got an X

    its not so much the actual sticker that gets me.. its the principal of the thing. its not theirs to sticker. this mentality that seems to be rampant now just bothers me. when did it become so popular for groups such as these to assume that since they "feel" one way about a subject that everyone else should also. then when someone tries to offer another viewpoint, they are put down with childlike cutdowns or viewed as evil. its not just this group...
    i know i would be ready to give the five knuckle introduction to anyone i find trying to put a sticker on my truck. i can't stand the agenda pushing crap. if they believe that SUVs are evil.. then avoid them. or at least offer some real logic and information. but resorting to cowardly vandalism.. that's all these idiots can think of.
