Biden gas pump stickers in Twin Falls, Idaho, a bad idea

I noticed this when buying gasoline. Monday after work. And I felt guilty. As you can see, on the right side of the image there is a Joe Biden “I DID THIS” sticker. On the left side, you can see where a Biden sticker of a similar design has been partially scratched off (I’ll come back to the scratch in a moment). There are several of these models available online and I ordered a few a few weeks ago because I collect political memorabilia.

The package was bigger than expected

I was not expecting a pack of 100. I kept a few and gave the rest to friends, neighbors and guests. One of the guys at work showed me a photo of a similar sticker applied to a gas pump in Jerome. It was larger than what I received in the package.

After taking a photo of the pump at Smith’s, I compared it to a photo of some stickers I took while looking at them on my desk at work. I saw a match in size, though. There is an additional printing on the sticker at the gas station. Maybe someone ordered from Amazon, which I did. Or someone wrote on a sticker after I gave it away.

Nothing to laugh about

It was funny at first. It’s not now. I don’t want to be responsible for the inconvenience of scratching those sticky jokes. On the air, I mentioned the Kyle Rittenhouse story. He had been in Kenosha, Wisconsin to clean up graffiti and then was asked to help and defend private property. The loss of goods at the car store was much worse during the riots compared to the stickers on a gas pump or a grocery shelf and, yet. The two are acts of vandalism separated by degrees.

A guy wrote to me after I mentioned the on-air comparison and said I was no more responsible than a gunmaker who sells a product that is then used in a crime. No, there is a difference. A gun maker realizes that his product could one day be used by a criminal, but for the most part he knows that most guns are used for sporting or self-defense purposes.

People don’t store Biden stickers in family albums and I don’t think anyone sticks them on the fridge at home. These things are screaming “put me on a gas pump!” Looking back, I’m sorry.
