Having to commute to and from the northside daily, I have found myself paying much more attention to bumper stickers at a much higher frequency. I believe it was Friday when at a light the vehicle in front of me had several, one of which I'd like to share: "Ted Kennedy's car has killed more people than my gun".
For the remainder of the ride I couldn't help thinking that most Americans have no issue with the ownership of firearms as long as they are law abiding and intelligent enough to make use of one only as a last resort. The legislators of our great country listen to the voices from both sides of the gun control issue and pass laws according to not the wishes of their constituency, but to results of the pollsters that they believe will insure their reelection.
For my thinking, would it not be to all of our benefit if all elected officials were limited to perhaps two or three terms dependant upon the length of term? Surely we would have a higher percentage of these lawmakers who would serve with the interest of the nation ahead of personal gain.
Congressional members of both houses have long exhausted their usefulness to those they represent. I mean really, twenty-thirty-forty years--who is kidding who here?

My favorite: My father has a bumper sticker on his truck that reads "I'd rather hunt with Dick Cheney than ride with Ted Kennedy."

Calling an ‘Illegal Alien’ an ‘Undocumented Worker’, is like calling a ‘Drug Dealer’ an 'Unlicensed Pharmacist".
