Jesus Rules

You may wish to enlarge this photo to see the writing more clearly. On the left is a sticker of the National Rifle Association. There's also a statement about how this country was made great by immigrants "who learned English." That's not true, but people like this live in their own fantasy world.

Why doesn't the car owner put it all in just one sticker: "Jesus rules with guns". Maybe then he would realize how ridiculous he is! There is a lot of people in this world I definitely don't want to meet.

Great shot. Now a days, they create sticker without thinking about reality.

Great pic's but...

(...this country was made great by immigrants "who learned English." That's not true, but people like this live in their own fantasy world.)

My parents were "legal" immigrants to this country and I was raised in a large ethnic community in the 60's.

Not only did my my parents, but all the ethnic families in our neighborhood insisted we all learn and speak English. After all we lived in AMERICA!

So who lives in the fantasy world?

@ D Dunn: It is very difficult to speak in generalizations.

The sign on the car is an exaggeration at best. Some immigrants learned English, some did not. Some learned just enough to get by. Some learned English but continued to speak their "native" tongue at home.

English has become an almost "universal" language in the world but that wasn't always the case.

When I grew up, there were large enclaves of people from various countries, some of which never did learn much English but still contributed to the "greatness" of the country.

The sign on the car reflects an anti-immigrant, jingoistic view of American exceptionalism. That was really my point.
