Isn’t it ironic? Don’t you think?

Seen at work parking ramp – a white Hummer (one of the really big ones) with the following bumper sticker: Got freedom? Thank a solider!

Son, I think your bumper sticker would carry a bit more clout if you were driving something that got more than five miles to the gallon. It’s amazing to me how many people out there don’t connect our excessive gas usage with the sacrifice our soliders are making.

I, too, currently drive an earth-fucking Jeep (and we plan to replace it with a hybrid or something smaller as soon as the funds avail themselves). I would be embarrassed to place a yellow ribbon or American flag on my vehicle right now, knowing damn well that if the Middle East didn’t have oil, we wouldn’t be over there.

I also think that it’s no coinkydink that we are paying $3.25 for a gallon of gas, and our president’s family business IS the oil business. I imagine a little switch under his Oval Office desk. Memorial Day weekend, with no choice but to drive long distances? ON. Approval rating just hit an all-time low? OFF.

Now that he’s not running for re-election, it is a free-for-all at the pump. Bill never would’ve let this happen. Bill would’ve had Ann Coulter personally siphon every last vehicle in Dubai with her mouth before letting gas prices get this high (and she would’ve liked it).

On a related note, have you ever seen anyone other that short balding middle-aged white men driving Hummers? Dude, it would be much more cost-effective to forego the Hummer and simply wear a shirt that says, “My mind is not the only thing that is small.”

    Oh, we have rich blond women driving them too. Always the skinny, always the blonde, always the ponytail. It is all required, I guess.

    I saw a youngish guy driving one and gave him the Loser sign - the big L. He followed me screaming at me for half and hour, finally pulled off an offramp, gesturing me to follow, so he could beat me up, I guess. As I said, what a loser.

    i see the rich blond women where i live driving hummers. with stickers for rangemasters (shooting range) on the back. i have to force myself not to throw up whenever i see a hummer. even the “little” h3.

    I’m pretty sure those women are married to the otherwise “less than average” guys mentioned in the post. ;)

    I love the shirt idea… perhaps we could get those for the other bald middle-aged men that drive the flashy sports cars and rev the engines all the time?

    Isn’t it amazing how no one NO ONE (by no one I mean Repubs) get the connection between high gas prices = guy who runs our country is an oil tycoon?

    I am always just so thoroughly offended by the whole thing. Granted I drive an old full sized v-8 van, but damn our old 92 van gets better gas mileage than most the SUV’s out there. Yet, I still choose to not drive it around as much as I could or should when our boys and girls are dying over the oil.

    For those that think this isn’t about oil.. they’re wrong.

    Believe it or not, I am a military wife, and my husband who is Navy believes the same thing.

    a little too ironic, and yeah I really do think

    It’s like rain on your wedding day,
    It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
    It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
    Who would’ve thought….it figures

    :)

    Or maybe a bumper sticker that sez: “This is my real dick”
