Signs of the times

Dear Editor:

I have noticed of late that a number of bumper stickers are now missing on vehicles here in the valley that have previously displayed them. Mostly “Obama/Biden,” “Obama08,” etc. Please, those still displaying them, don’t strip or scrape them off, they will last for a number of years if properly cared for. A number of “Kerry/Edwards,” “Free Tibet” and others, as an example, are still around in the valley on a few ’89 Volvo station wagons and the like!

It is important that you take care of these “Obama/Biden,” “Obama08,” etc. bumper stickers; please park in the garage or in the shade when you can, clean off the mag chloride and every now and then use a little Armor All to help preserve them; it works great! If this is not done properly they may not be legible in two, three or four years and how will we ever be able to recognize and salute you for being an important instrument in helping Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Murtha, Frank, Dodd and those in the Obama administration stuff this great country down the toilet! Thanks, and remember to check your tires and get a tune-up! Let me know if you need help … obviously you do!
