One of the many American pride bumper stickers

One of the many American pride bumper stickers

I saw a bumper sticker recently that said American-American.  Really?  I seriously doubt that.  I didn’t see the driver, so I couldn’t profile him.  But I can bet that he was not a pure blooded American.
