the united states that i believe in does not believe in torture!

Filed under: observation, picture of the day, politics

i work for a fairly liberal company.  we have a strict environmental mission that is followed religiously (as opposed to those companies where you see the mission on your first day, and then you don’t hear about it ever again), we’re pretty gay-friendly (hell, we work with hairdressers and fashion designers) – hell, we even have an organic resturant on site.

in fact, even our parent company is liberal (scored a perfect 100 on the hrc corporate equality index).

there is very little that is conservative in working for who i work for.

that said, it’s disturbing to no end when i see pro-bush bumper stickers in our parking lots.  now, of course, conservatives need job’s too – and i need to remind myself that sometimes, people just want/need a job, and could care less for the “bigger picture” of corporate politics, but it’s just discouraging when people support a particular political vision that’s so innately opposed to what’s right (yes, i know what’s right is subjective, but in my world, it’s good liberal, environmental, pro-gay thinking!). 

i am a bit of a trumpet blower for the companies i’ve worked for and just wouldn’t last long working for a company who’s vision is so different than mine.  prior to working here, i worked for a payroll company who was at that time (7.5 years ago) the second largest user of virgin paper (after the fed gov) in the nation.  when i would bring up the subject of using more recycled paper in our stock, i was looked at as if i just suggested we use poop as the base in the ceo’s meatloaf.  suffice to say, i only lasted there 4 months.

with that said, it brings me great pleasure to provide the following photograph.  i’ve seen this truck a time or two in our parking lot, but never had a camera ready.  i have no idea who drives it, but i gotta say: i. love. this. truck:


sorry the quality sucks.  if you can’t make out the text that is painted on the tailgate it reads: “the united states that i believe in does not believe in torture!

You gotta love someone who will write that with a sharpie, and not just slap a bumper sticker on their car.

Not all torture is bad. There’s tickle torture for one. And then all manners of leather/bondage torture that can be fun.

and so long as the torture is equal- that’s all that really matters, right?
