A locus for eccentrics (hopefully)

Rank Hypocrisy

Last night I got stuck behind a Volkswagen Passat who thought that the speed limit is 20 MPH on the way to my soccer game. The car had two bumper stickers:

1) "IRAQ IS ARABIC FOR VIETNAM" -- well, fair enough. I don't think it's as perfect a match as a lot of war critics do, but it's not unlike it at all.

2) (And here I'm paraphrasing) "NO ONE IS FREE WHILE OTHERS ARE OPPRESSED" -- Really? I'd love to hear what sort of solution that a hypothetical third bumper sticker would offer vis-a-vis rescuing people from oppression...
