In recent weeks I've seen this car rolling through Fircrest and University Place a couple of times.

It is a wreck of a relic, a mangled old Ford LTD that is loaded with bumper stickers such as "Keep Washington Green, Move Back to California" and "Die Yuppie Scum" along with one for radio station KISW, and other oddities including a mailbox mounted on the hood that has the box number "667" and states that it is "Next door to The Beast".

Whoever and whatever it is all about, it is an amusing sight to see. Even as goofy as it is, it makes me proud to be an American that we can enjoy the freedom to be ourselves, to be outspoken, to be bold, and to just be out having fun in the sun.

The first Amendment to the Constitution reads “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Where does it read “freedom of stupidity”?

The beauty of our government is our right to be as silly or "stupid" as we see fit and so long as we don't impede the rights of others. We don't have to agree with what others have to say.
