We would rather do business with 1000 Al Queda terrorists
than with one single American Soldier!


This sign was prominently displayed in the window of a business in Florida and you are probably outraged at the thought of such an inflammatory sign.

However, we are a society which holds Freedom of Speech as perhaps one of our greatest liberties. And after all, it is only a sign, right? You may ask : "What kind of business would dare post such a sign?"

It's all about context.

Personally I'd rather not see anyone have to go to a funeral home until they have lived a long and fulfilling life. But maybe that's just me. If the world and people could just learn to stop worrying about who has what or who doesn't have what and all work together and help each other it would he a much happier place.

Great sign. Nothing like context to make it make sense.
