Did they really give you 50 cents to take it off their hands?

You should have held out for a Dollar.

It looks like George is perturbed to be on the same envelope as those two and I don't blame him.

And what a cover it is, showing the father of our country and a couple that have endeavored to tear it down. That is, of course, just MHHO.

@ Mike,

"...and stay off my lawn!"

You're hilarious. Gotta meet up with us in Orlando for Florex in December.

re: What the hey ! Add your own comment

Was this thread really necessary, especially at this time? Why deliberately inject divisive politics in this board?

At the very least, this should be in the off-topic area.

re: What the hey ! Add your own comment

With all due respect to all who have posted:

It's just a moment of levity. There's been plenty of talk about the president who co-starred with a chimp, and all the remarks about the Donald. As soon as someone left of center gets lampooned a little it seems that suddenly people "should be talking about stamps".

Everyone should relax. It's often stated but not followed enough: "if you don't like the thread don't read it".

Ernie:

I'm the only person who's objected, so I assume this is directed at me.

I didn't know what the subject of the thread was until I read it, and it's in the category "United States - Covers & Postmarks." That's why I said it should be moved.

And levity, at whose expense? Politically, this is a very closely divided country. Why the h**l introduce any post that one knows is going to p**s off half the country? I just don't understand. It reflects very poor judgment, imho.

re: What the hey ! Add your own comment

Hey dave,
No my comment was not directed at you specifically. David also had said "at least the initial post was about a cover".

Look, I really don't care where this thread is positioned or if it exists at all. I suspect the cover image was posted to solicit funny responses in the first place. If that's the case, more power to Phil. Other than the Clintons being pictured it's rather forgettable in the first place.

My only thought is that if we can goof on Trump and Reagan than Bill and Shrillary should be fair game also.

Everyone on here talks about what ever they want that doesn't deal with stamps. They should let others indulge also.

I mean, the title of the thread is "what the hey, add your comment." Don't think he was looking for scholarly research on the cover.

re: What the hey ! Add your own comment

Ernie: I didn't see the posts about Trump and Reagan. Perhaps they were in the off-topic area? Or got moved there by the time I got to the board? I rarely look at those, for exactly those reasons.

I stand by my initial comment that this thread does not belong in a philatelic category.

Amazing, for years i thought of Stamporama as a "live and let live" venue...i guess i was mistaken...i guess we better all be careful from this point forward.

re: What the hey ! Add your own comment

Phil,
I don't think anyone has a problem with your post, just the topic heading it is in. If I look in the US covers/postmarks I would like to see covers and be able to discuss them. You have to admit that cover could and will start a political discussion which is OK but I would rather see it in an off topic heading so I can avoid it if I choose.
