I support the troops.

...but picking up hitchikers especially in certain parts of the US, forget it.

Especially someone in fatigues, he could be some crazy rambo type.

This aint the 50's and 60's anymore, people are really wearry about picking up hitchhikers.

Really, especially if you're not white. If that guy is like Montana Militia or something you can be in a world of hurt.

Ain't any white supremecists groups here. Until quite recently we were the whitest state in the Union and being second now there still isn't anything of a race issue here. This is dairy land and ski town. The last major incident of any kind here was when some Confederate raiders came down from Montreal and robbed a bank here 140 years ago. Agian, no crime to speak of, no "militias" - nothing. Plenty of people though it seems who were warm in their cars and not any more appreciative of life ending temperatures than it appears are some folks in this forum.

Vermont huh? It's matter of generation I think. I grew up in a severe climate to the other exterme South Texas scrub desert. You don't leave someone out there ethier. Now that I live in the midwest I don't leave people out in the cold. Generational thing I guess. Or understanding what extermes can do to a person.

Actually, I believe that song is about a prisoner being released after completing his sentence.

I do believe that a lot of the yellow ribbons are just lip service (I've actually seen them on vehicles that also had "Not in my name" stickers or the like), but I also believe that most of the ribbons/stickers were placed with honestly good intentions. I've always put more stock in people who display their beliefs through action rather than symbols or chanting them on the street corner anyway.

Here in downtown Brooklyn, there are plenty of Yellow Ribbons placed on the back of the vehicles. But my question is, is this symbol really truly defines your loyalty and support?
