We’re out cherry picking today at Singer Farms. The car next to us has these two stickers next to each other:

    LOL, great find!

    I also love the numerous cars with both an Obama 2012 sticker and a No War sticker.

    Good, Speedmaster!

    “Keep it here”? It does not stay “here”. It goes to Albany, NYC, and elsewhere (Syria?) via Washington, DC. A good bit of it, anyway.

    Any profit deposited in any bank immediately goes elsewhere — ten times the amount. Not complaining about free enterprise, mind you. It just does not get piled up by the Erie Canal for picking.

  3. HAH! That’s fabulous.

    Let me guess. Was the car a Toyota Pious (not a misspelling)?

    Peaceful coexistence, the doctrine of Nikita Kruschev. Mir.

    When you grow up here in the land of the free, where we have many generations of tolerance, it is sometimes difficult to comprehend intolerance, when it comes to religion and philosophy.

    But then we have speech codes and political correctness in our colleges and universities, and promotion of bigotry, and promotion of The End of Days, and suicide. This is not getting along.

    I bet whoever has those two bumper stickers has a tight sphincter and a frown on his face. Was that Chuck Schumer’s car?

    So the Coexist sticker implies support for tolerance, my identity doesn’t threaten your identity etc.
    And the Buy Local sticker implies xenophobia, intolerance?
    I don’t see it.
    Surely you can support diversity and your local economy at the same time.
    And if this is not a case of “you can’t have it both ways” then what is at play here? Tribally motivated ad hominem perhaps.
    Assuming I’ve not misunderstood something here I’d consider this juxtapose an example of woolly thinking, however, coming from a PHD Econ type (rational, academically rigorous etc?) it seems pretty shoddy to me.
    Disappointed the normally excellent @TimHarford tweeted this blog entry.

    So WC is a cherry picker. A common attack.

    The other day I read in the middle column about cherry pit spitters. Speedmaster needs to provide the link on his blog, the one with the great links .
