Where to buy Pro U.S. bumper stickers or magnets

OK so I'm curious. I recently moved to the U.S. and live in California.

So, my question is, where can i buy cetain things.

For example, I live in Cali, so everyone knows it's kinda wacko liberal here, but wonderful in so many ways. Anyway, I'm a slight bit sick of all the crap I see on cars so here's my question:

Where can I go to purchase some nice things for my car, be it bumper sticker, or magnet or what have you.

Here are some examples of what I am looking for:

Support Our Troops
Flag Magnet
Guns Kill People, like Donuts make Rosie Fat
Freedom isn't free

or funny anti-political stickers.

Thanks one and all.

You're not planning on putting this on a new car, right?

Do you want a flag magnet, or a sticker that says "flag magnet"?

Uh, like any gas station? Or just walk around and steal one of the 10 million ribbon magnets off someone else's car.

Any Republican congressman or senator should have them available at their office. That's where I got mine. Free!

You put that kind of stickers in your car in San Francisco and I'll guarantee you a broken window. San Francisco liberals are consider wackos and extremely violent.

"nice things for my car"? What, are you worried that immigration is going to come after you or something?

I do like the "Freedom isn't free" bumper sticker. That can interpreted more than one way. Personally though, I think you should go for the one that says "Flag Magnet". Who doesn't love a good Flag Magnet? And if you can't find one, type one up in Word. Make sure the font size is big enough.

I don't get it. Is Bush not gay because he's the top? Or is just a not very well thought out visualization of Bush fucking over Al-Qaeda? And why are there two characters labeled "USA"? Is that supposed to represent the two "sides" of our country? Then why are they both so happy about fucking a terrorist? Is the Lynnie England caricature forcing us on bin Laden? If so, is this saying we are all slaves to the war on terror?

Thanks for all the good and funny responses.

I also thought it might be nice to just have one that says "Annoying Political Sticker", though I think I'd like to find one that says "Giuliani Rice 08". Sounds kinda like a menu item, so that's cool too.

THE IRONY was obviously lost on the clueless San Francisco supervisors when they passed a resolution warning that a Christian youth gathering could "negatively influence the politics of America's most tolerant and progressive city."

Spare us the doomsday hyperbole, supervisors.

We can safely report that the politics of San Francisco suffered no discernible shift in ideological alignment from the convergence of 25,000 Christian teenagers listening to rock 'n' roll music and words of inspiration. There was no evidence of any surge in support for the Iraq war, affection for President Bush or oil drilling off the California coast. The medical-marijuana clubs were still doing business as usual, public dancing was still legal, the petition gatherers were still working Market Street for the latest save-the-planet cause.

The supervisors' reaction to the evangelical Christians was so boorishly over the top that only one word could describe it:

Intolerant.

Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, was quoted telling counterprotesters Friday that the gathering Christians were "loud, they're obnoxious, they're disgusting and they should get out of San Francisco." On Monday, however, Leno struck a more reasoned tone, acknowledging that his rally cry was "not one of my prouder moments." He said the youth group was "welcome in San Francisco," even though he does worry that its religious rhetoric could "under a cloak of love" feed a "fearful world's appetite for hate."

In fact, concern about heterosexual sex by unmarried youth gets equal treatment from the Battle Cry campaign. Its goal is to spread Christianity and to help young people recognize and resist the cultural influences of a "stealthy enemy" that includes "corporations, media conglomerates and purveyors of popular culture." Its Web site (www.battlecry.com) speaks of "casualties of war" that include drinking, drug use, teen sex, pornography, abortion, suicide and violence.

We may disagree with certain aspects of the Battle Cry agenda -- on issues such as abortion rights, religion in schools or acceptance of an individual's sexual orientation -- but the attempt by counterprotesters and some of the city's elected officials to call them "fascist" and "hateful" was totally at odds with the tone of the ballpark event and the approach of the Web site.

The gathering was not an "act of provocation," as the supervisors claimed. It was a get-together of young evangelicals whose lifestyles and religious views just happen to be in the minority here -- apparently making them open season for politicians to chastise.

The young people who came to San Francisco to affirm their faith and enjoy a day of rock music deserved better. They deserved to be welcomed by a city that was as tolerant and progressive as its sanctimonious supervisors like to profess.

Myster X, that stuff doesn't belong in this thread. You don't have to make every thread a rant against the SF wackos.

I can just see it now. Al Qaeda responds to this by creating AK47 stickers:

"AL QAEDA

The ORIGINAL Freedom Fighters!"

I'm sure their message is more along "God's chosen fighters."

Many people are highly advesarial and define themselves not so much as what they're for, but what they're against. However, political affiliation isn't really a binary choice. People aren't simply liberal or conservative, but rather, a whole lot of different things (e.g. conformist, non-conformist, communist, capitalist, enviromentalist, industrialist, luddite, technocrat, etc.) that may not necessarily coincide with just conservatism or liberalism in different situations. If someone is anti-liberal that doesn't necessarily imply they're conservative, and vice-versa. In your example, we have an assumed group of people who support gay-rights marches, etc., but not christian parades. While such a group could be considered anti-conservative or perhaps non-conformist, they cannot really be considered to be liberal any more than someone who wants to abolish freedom of religion could be considered conservative.

So why do liberals label anti-liberals conservatives, and why do conservatives label anti-conservatives liberals? I really don't understand.

P.S. I wonder if they make "In porno we trust" bumper stickers.
