Something is Wrong With This Picture

Something is wrong with this picture. I couldn’t get the photo as clearly as I wanted (given the road-salt-encrusted windshield and ambient lighting conditions), but the bumper sticker captured here says something like this:

Worried about the economy?
(name of some labor union)

Fine sentiment, I suppose, but a bit ironic seeing it on a Toyota Sienna. Of course, in this mixed-up multinational world, it is worth noting that the Sienna seen here was likely manufactured in Kentucky . . . so it is, in my humble opinion, more ‘American’ than a Dodge made in Mexico or a Ford made in Turkey.

But it was, indeed, manufactured by a Japanese firm, and by non-union workers to boot. I doubt this gentleman’s Sienna would meet with the approval of the folks who printed the bumper sticker.
