What is up with the magnetic ribbons? I really don't understand why people find it necessary to put a ribbon their car to show support for a particular cause.

If i'm a workaday normal person, I have no real capability to orally express my views. Some huckster prints up magnetic yellow ribbons that have some unarguable thing on them like "support our troops". So I buy one and slap it on the car to "advertise my patriotism".

It's not so hard to understand.

I have seen pink breast cancer ones recently too. I'm waiting for the brown colon cancer one before I get one though.

I wonder where the procedes of the sale of these maganetic sings go. Somebody should make a little add-on sticker that says "vote Nader!" to put on the end of the "Support our troops" sign.

I have an announcement to make. (1)

I would just like to go on the record as saying that I hate soldiers' babies. I hope that clears up any confusion as to why I don't have a magnetic ribbon on my car.
