OBAMA: One Big Ass Mistake America

I found this closed business, with its broken windows covered in Anti-Obama slogans, in the small town of Hicksville, Ohio. It is on the south side of High Street (State Route 49 and State Route 2), across from Hicksville Grain.

The biggest of the slogans, "One Big Ass Mistake America," is a common one, often seen on bumper stickers. The initials spell "O.B.A.M.A." The window also has a bumper sticker on it that says, "Obama: Impeach Him."

One of the messages on the window is hard to read because of the broken part of the window obscuring part of it, but it appears to say "Get a handgun permit."

The "Support Arizona" line refers to the efforts of some elected officials in Arizona's state government to 'prove' that President Obama was not really born in the United States.


Update: In February, 2020, I discovered that this building has been demolished.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
