Fuck Those Yellow "Support Our Troops" Magnets

NO, I'm not anti-patriotic. I'm just as American as anybody. My problem is that those idiotic magnets do NOTHING to help "Support Our Troops". There are 2 things that we can do to support our troops and putting fucking magnets on your car is not one of them. First, pay your taxes and don't cheat. Second, elect leaders that will use the military properly. This is not what is currently happening.

Those idiotic magnets are a constant reminder to me that we have millions of troops overseas killing people for no good reason and everyone with a yellow "Support Our Troops" magnet on their car thinks that is a GREAT thing. "They attacked us on 9-11, let's kill'em all!!!!" If you have one of those magnets on your car that is what you are telling me everyday. And I'm not the only one. Some people IN the military agree with me. Shouldn't that tell you something.

One final note. I was visiting my inlaws last weekend and stopped to get some gas. I waited inside the gas station while the tank was being filled and happened upon a nice surprise. They were selling those stupid fucking magnets there for $0.99 but that's not the best part. They were made, you guessed it, in Taiwan. If that's not patriotic I don't know what is. God bless America.

Hey Adem,I am on your side of this issue. As long as I can remember the color YELLOW has ment COWARD. I do not like the idea of yellow magnets or yellow ribons.

Supporting our troops is one thing,but supporting the forign bastards that make those magnets is not helping our troops.

For all you know one of the terrorist groupes that we are fighting is making those magnets and laughing at us for supporting them.

Take a break Turtle, before you hurt yourself. Which American company is it that shipped those jobs to Taiwan in the first place? Is everyone Not American a "terrorist" to you? You live on a planet with lots and lots of inter-dependent countries, so get over it already.
Thank you Adam, for pointing this out. Every time I see one of those stupid magnets, unfortunately I immediately think the person driving must be an ignorant fool.

Right on sarah. You got it, TURTLE did not. Being a patriot today means supporting our country in the global community. It does not mean getting excited about our military trying to dominate the world.

Ever notice that on smaller vehicles they turn the stupid magnet sideways to fit on the trunk and then it magically resembles a Jesus fish.. . just a thought
