I saw this bumper sticker the other day: "War is not the answer." I wondered, what is the question?

Another bumper sticker: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism." Hm, not really. Intelligent agreement or intelligent dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Either dissenting or agreeing without serious consideration is just lemming behavior.

And finally, if Johnny could design a bumper sticker for our new Nissan Versa: "This car is a product of socialism." My subtitle was, "Thank you, President Obama and the American taxpayers." But then, Johnny told me that the bumper sticker was NOT designed for our Versa, but actually the Trabant, a small two-cylinder car he has been interested in of late that was a product of East Germany. Where, I suppose, one could argue that there was a socialist government. If anyone owns a Trabant, we have a bumper sticker idea for you. And if you're selling it cheap, I might be interested in purchasing my hubby's Christmas gift a little early...
