Don't bite the hand that feeds you
My wife was approached by a beggar this week. She doesn't like to carry a lot of cash and at the time had only some loose change. When she told the beggar she only had some change, the beggar replied, "Yeah, times are tough with George Bush in office." Well, no more alms for you. My wife withdrew her offer and kept on walking. I told her she should have replied that unemployment is around 5% and the beggar should find a job.

This night I was behind a truck with two Leftist bumper stickers, "No War" and "I'm already against the next war". It occurred to me that this would be a perfect target for car-jacking. Obviously, the occupant doesn't like to defend himself and wouldn't put up a fight for his truck.
