Or maybe I'll just get the FBI knocking on my door.

VA state plate commemorating 9/11

I saw this plate (ok, albeit with the customization INFMY and not JINGO) on the way home this evening, and gaped. There are only four things stopping me from running out and getting this plate with "RACIST" on it. 1) It's not actually my car, 2) You can only have 5 letters on the plate, 3) I'd hate to get the car trashed by random passers by, and 4) There might actually be right-thinking people out there who would get the plate, and I wouldn't want to offend them.

But yeesh.

I dunno, I think I'm just excessively tired of Johnny-Come-Lately Patriots (Patent Pending), who don't know a thing about the politics of the world at large, or even of their country, but By God (c), They (TM) Attacked Us (R), and Something Must Be Done. I had a whole patriotism rant worked up here, but it's just not worth it. Suffice it to say that, unless I've sat down and talked to you about this before in depth, you probably don't know how I feel about the whole issue, and any guesses you have are likely to be off the mark, no matter how well you think you know me.

Oh, and if you'd like to make your own Virginia State Fight Terrorism Plate, you can do so here. Enjoy!

(And for those who don't know why I chose 'JINGO' for my example, the definition.)
