What is up with the magnetic ribbons? I really don’t understand why people find it necessary to put a ribbon their car to show support for a particular cause. I don’t have a ribbon on my car, does that mean I don’t support troops?
At first it was just “Support Our Troops.” Unfortunately, “Support our Troops” has evolved in to “Support the War.” I support the men and women of the United States Armed Forces, but I don’t need have a ribbon on my car to prove my patriotism.
Now the magnetic ribbon phenomenon has evolved in to all types of slogans. Here is a quick sample:
- Pray for Our Troops
- Freedom isn’t Free
- Cancer Awareness
- Honor Our Veterans
- The 10 Commandments
- Support Our Sailors
Apparently I am now, pro-terrorist, anti-veteran, pro-cancer, anti-sailor, and anti-religion. If this fad continues, their won’t be enough space on people’s Suburbans to showcase all their opinions! I just want to meet the guy who came up with the first “Support Our Troops” magnetic Ribbon. This is a killer business idea. When the next conflict, terrorist attack, or political controversy comes around, I’m going to be sure to come up with some scheme to profit off it. Maybe anti and pro abortion magnets! Pro and Anti patriot act magnets! The best way to ensure profitability is to market products for both sides.
