Signs of (these troubled) Times

Bumperstickers seen on the same car --
On the top of the front dashboard beneath the windshield: "America Needs a Buddhist President."
On the back bumper, in a black oval like those indicating the driver is from a European country (UK, GDR): "RGR."
The second one stands for the Army Rangers and indicates that a family member belong to this elite unit. Together, they suggest that the owner of the car -- okay, my wife -- is suffering from a severe case of conflicted loyalties. Especially considering the Ranger in question currently serves in a hot spot in Iraq.
