This is a good cause, as the widows and children of KIA's get very little in return compared to what they lost.



For them there are no multi-million dollar funds such as the ones survivors of 9/11 benefited from. I'm truly happy to see this effort underway.

During the Vietnam War many pilots had an agreement amongst themselves to report each other MIA rather than KIA when they were shot down, even if it was apparent that the pilot was killed. The benefits for families of MIA are more generous than KIA. Not that in either case it's much to write home about.

I'm sending in the $35.00 even though I can't make it. Wish I could send more.



A 5 day ride from Indy to Salt Lake in the summer? Bring lots of JC Whitney liquid bug remover. Splat. Beer works good too btw.

I don't understand why these types of fund raising should even be necessary. Our government trashes our military in an inexplicable fiasco in Iraq with no explanation or plan and without a hint of compassion for those who are forced to support it. It's not possible to host enough rides and rallys to compensate for the losses. What a ***** waste!

You could also say: "I don't understand why these types of fund raising should even be necessary.

Since we're getting started on the political debate, I think I'll share an email that I got today. Title=Liberal Bumper Stickers. I'm not a liberal myself, but still thought these were funny.



Liberal Bumper Stickers:

BLIND FAITH IN BAD LEADERSHIP IS NOT PATRIOTISM



IF YOU'RE NOT OUTRAGED, YOU'RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION



IF YOU SUPPORTED BUSH, A YELLOW RIBBON WON'T MAKE UP FOR IT



POVERTY, HEALTH CARE, & HOMELESSNESS ARE MORAL ISSUES



OF COURSE IT HURTS. YOU'RE GETTING SCREWED BY AN ELEPHANT



BUSH LIED, AND YOU KNOW IT



RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM: A THREAT ABROAD, A THREAT AT HOME



GOD BLESS EVERYONE (No exceptions)



BUSH SPENT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY ON HIS WAR



PRO AMERICA, ANTI BUSH



WHO WOULD JESUS BOMB?



FEEL SAFER NOW?



I'D RATHER HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO SCREWED HIS INTERN THAN ONE WHO SCREWED

HIS COUNTRY



JESUS WAS A SOCIAL ACTIVIST -- THAT IS A LIBERAL



MY VALUES? FREE SPEECH. EQUALITY. LIBERTY. EDUCATION. TOLERANCE



IS IT 2008 YET?



DISSENT IS THE HIGHEST FORM OF PATRIOTISM -- Thomas Jefferson



DON'T BLAME ME. I VOTED AGAINST BUSH -- TWICE!



ANNOY A CONSERVATIVE: THINK FOR YOURSELF



VISUALIZE IMPEACHMENT



HEY BUSH! WHERE'S BIN LADEN?



CORPORATE MEDIA = MASS MIND CONTROL



STOP MAD COWBOY DISEASE



GEORGE W. BUSH: MAKING TERRORISTS FASTER THAN HE CAN KILL THEM



KEEP YOUR THEOCRACY OFF MY DEMOCRACY



DEMOCRATS ARE SEXY. WHOEVER HEARD OF A GOOD PIECE OF ELEPHANT?



ASPIRING CANADIAN



CORPORATE MEDIA: WEAPONS OF MASS DECEPTION



DON'T CONFUSE DYING FOR OIL WITH FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM



STEM CELL RESEARCH IS PRO LIFE



HATE, GREED, IGNORANCE: WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION



HONOR OUR TROOPS: DEMAND THE TRUTH



REBUILD IRAQ? WHY NOT SPEND 87 BILLION ON AMERICA?



FACT: BUSH OIL



1999 - $19 BARREL

2006 - $75 BARREL





THE LAST TIME RELIGION CONTROLLED POLITICS, PEOPLE GOT BURNED AT THE

STAKE



I'LL GIVE UP MY CHOICE WHEN JOHN ROBERTS GETS PREGNANT



HOW ON EARTH CAN 59,411,287 PEOPLE BE SO DUMB?

Those are pretty good.



My favorites are:



Why do animal rights nuts only attack elderly women wearing furs? It's safer than going after biker gangs.



Driver carries only $20 in ammunition.



Caution: I Drive Like You.

Funny that at least half of these so called

Liberal Bumper Stickers would also apply to the beliefs of most libertarians and paleo-conservatives as well.

"Jesus was a social activist - that is a liberal."



Yeah. Hitler and Stalin were social activists too.



As with political slogans, most of them are just plain stupid. Funny but stupid. Ya gotta feel sorry for simpletons like that trying to get through life.
