    You're out of the service now right? The reason I ask is that I see a lot of these kind of license plates on Ft. Campbell and I think to myself, "yeah you're a veteran, but so is everyone here why do you feel the need to get special plates?" Just seems silly to get them if you live/work on a military base.

    Or you made a turkey sandwich with some bad turkey.

    One advantage to that: it saves a little money, because they have no annual fees, at least where I live. I have a retired USAF plate on my truck and it is free.

    I think it's funny that someone would assume you hate poor people and then basically curse you out and say then tell you to go to hell. So much for being some kind of morally upstanding doctor that somehow cares for others but can't rationally react to disagreeing opinions.

    I've never had political bumper stickers on my car. I only have a sticker as an alumni of my bachelors program, my parking decal and a bumper sticker for my current school.

    I do not have any stickers on my car.

    No plans to change that, either.

    Still, that guy seems off a bit...none of your stickers proclaim any desire to stop helping the poor.

    I've never understood people's desire to air their political views on their vehicle.

    Of course he did. Why do you think he is bragging to us about the note? He loved every minute of it. I'm an obnoxious a**hole myself. I would have loved to get a note like that. It would have made my year.

    Not trying to insinuate anything. (And if you think I am, then you're being way too sensitive.) Just curious. Oh and FWIW, my vote would have been No.
    Yes. of course he was asking for it. He got it and it made him very happy. Now he needs a George Bush bumper sticker that says, "I pissed you off Jack A**: Mission Accomplished".

    Painful. If one self-identifies with a candidate or party so deeply that they want that candidate's logo with them wherever they go, so everyone can see "hey, there goes a Romney/Obama supporter" ... well, they generally sound like someone I wouldn't want to be around. Kinda like that one guy at the end of the bar yammering about politics to anyone within earshot, while the rest of the patrons congregate at the other end of the bar desperately avoiding eye contact with him.
