I saw a three time loser the other day. Well I actually didn't see the person but I parked next to the car they were driving. It had three stickers on it - a Kerry Edwards sticker, an anti-Christian sticker and a bumper sticker that read something like, “I'll be so glad when the schools get all the money they need for education and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber”.

Loser number one: We all know what happened to the Kerry Edwards ticket.

Loser number two: Some day soon this person's head will bow and his knee will bend in honor of the one he chooses to make fun of.

Loser number three: The naiveté of some people is absolutely beyond belief. If we operated in this country for one day, just one day, the way these people want us to, we would cease to exist.

Without a well armed, ever-vigilant military, the United States of America would go down in history as the greatest but dumbest country the world has ever known. We didn't have sense to protect what we had.

If America is such a bad place why don't you try driving your little car down the streets of Riyadh Saudi Arabia with a sticker promoting anything but the currant mullah powered government - one that says something derogatory about Mohammed, and one that says that the revolutionary army shouldn't have the arms it needs?

Just do that, and see how long it takes for some psycho zealot Muslim to shove a stick of dynamite up your tailpipe.

I also see signs that say, Ban Nuclear Bombs - which I think is a dandy idea if we can just get one of you people to go over to North Korea and talk that little guy with the funny hair into getting rid of his.

And then you could talk Pakistan and India into junking their nuclear arsenal and Iran or Russia. If you could just do that one little task and come up with a way where we can insure that they will never make another nuclear device, I'll join you in your effort.

Until that time I think that America had better hang on to its nukes, and I think we'd better give the Air Force all the bombers and fighter planes it needs to protect the nation and fight our wars.

Don't get me wrong. I don't think these are bad people who have these far out ideas, I just think they're naïve and need a daily dose of reality in their lives.

We live in a world that can change overnight. How would you like to wake up one morning to find that we'd had another 9-11 style terror attack and find out that the Air Force was going to be able to protect our skies just as soon as it sold a few more chocolate layer cakes?

Ridiculous? So is your bumper sticker.

Pray for our troops.

What do you think?

God Bless America.
