Finally, they are back! The free bumper stickers for the 2012 presidential campaign. And at least for a while, until they are all given away, you can get yours. All you have to do is go to https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/om-get-your-obama-biden-sticker or click on the picture within this post to go to the official Barack Obama campaign site. If this time is like my past experiences, it will take about 2 to 3 weeks for your free bumper sticker to be mailed to you.
Please do realize that by filling out that form for the free sticker that you are giving them the right to email you and postal mail you in the future. You will be asked for donations, for volunteer time, and for support. But in my mind this is all worth it.
Oh, and for those of you worrying about sticking stickers on your car, two hints. I don’t want to put bumper stickers on my car either if they are going to damage the paint or never come off. To get around that you need to either stick your free sticker on the glass, or get some of that flexible magnet material and put the sticker on that, then on to the metal of your car.
If you do use the magnet route, please move the sticker around a bit every week or two and also make sure to clean underneath it. If you don’t, the contaminants and grit held down by the magnet can damage your cars finish. This is especially crucial if you have a metallic or semi-metallic paint job. The magnets can actually cause the paint to separate from your car and peel off when you remove the magnet.
For those reasons I plan on putting my free Obama for President sticker on my back windshield. But the magnet option is good too – as long as you take the precautions.
OK, the winners in the Daniusoft DVD Ripper contest have been chosen by the random number generator at Random.Org. So, if you don’t like the results, please blame them and not me. I hate not being able to pick you all!
I will need to hear from each of you to know whether you want Windows or Mac and what the registration email should be.
Thanks to all of you who entered, and stay tuned. I should have another contest in the next week or so.
I will tell you, I am impressed. There has been a lot of signing this last week. Now some will say that a lot of what President Barack Obama has done this first week is all show, but I entirely disagree. And some will not like some of the things he has signed, such as the closing of Guantanamo, but again I disagree. I cannot remember a president who has taken such strides within his first week of taking office.
This nation, and in fact the world, needs to see clear and decisive signs that there is change. The change that was promised in the election and the change that will refuel our economy, our spirit, and our reputation. Every thing that President Obama has done so far goes directly to those goals. From unequivocally outlawing torture to pushing through the economic stimulus plans, these are things that should not involve waffling or debate. We know how we, the US people, feel about these things and they should be acted on promptly.
I will also tell you this – I feel a change in people’s attitudes. Maybe it is just me or maybe I am just looking for it, but people seem to be encouraged even in this time of economic turmoil. There is a politeness and respect in the air that I haven’t seen since the days after 9/11. Someone suggested that this is also helped along by the good news from the Hudson River where all passengers walked away from that US Air flight. (A flight I have taken more than once, I might add.) But, whatever the reason, there is a welcome change in the air.
It is only the end of the first week though. There is still a long way to go. There are a lot of problems and a lot of hard decisions. Let’s hope we can all stick together, work hard, and put everyone back on the right track. The free bumper stickers, buttons and posters were great, but they will not get the work done. It is up to us, at the grass roots level to make sure that promises are kept and old school, good-old-boy politics does not creep in.
