A '57 Chevy in excellent condition is worth more than four new Chevy Sparks, all of which will be in the junkyard in less than 10 years.
Older cars have far fewer components to fail and are much easier to repair.
Same reason Galt still uses a rotary phone. In his senility, when he tries to make a phone call, he still picks up the receiver & waits for the operator to say "number please".

Which is entirely beside the point, your side is convinced "White Hispanic" was invented for Zimmerman.
Galt does not agree with the US Census collecting any racial data, which serves no good purpose.

The sole purpose of the Census is a head count to determine representation for each state in Congress.

so in your mind, those "Democrats" from the late 19th century would have voted for President Barrack Obama?
BTW Acid is so 60's
The New KKK has double since Obama has been elected, Libs are KKK every day, and twice on Sundays.

Obama has done more to enslave blacks, Klan Parent Hood is killing off blacks, the Klu Klux Klan loves a half white Obama, the KKK would have committed suicide if Herman Cain was elected.

The DNA of the demoKKKratic party is inbred with hate and racism.

It's the culture...

on a positive note
The Obama administration opened an aggressive new front in the battle over voter protection Thursday, singling out Texas for legal action and promising broader efforts to come after last month’s Supreme Court ruling that wiped out a major provision of the Voting Rights Act.
It was the administration’s first legal response to counter the justices’ 5-4 decision, but Attorney General Eric Holder pledged that ‘‘it will not be our last.’’
In a speech to the National Urban League in Philadelphia, Holder called the Voting Rights Act ‘‘the cornerstone of modern civil rights law’’ and said that ‘‘we cannot allow the slow unraveling of the progress that so many, throughout history, have sacrificed so much to achieve.’’
yeah, these wingnuts keep acting like the Court struck down the whole deal.

as they are finding out, that's not the way it happened.

SAY NO MORE LOLOLHAHAHA DUNCES YOUR PRESIDENT is SUPPORTED BY BIGOTS lololohambone Television chef Paula Deen, who lost her gig Friday with the Food Network after admitting and apologizing for having used racial epithets, including the “N-word,” is a supporter of President Barack Obama and campaigned on his behalf in 2008.

The Southern-bred television personality also invited Michelle Obama onto one of her television programs and praised the first lady’s healthy eating agenda.

Deen, who has previously faced criticism for using excessive quantities of fat and salt in her dishes, is under fire after it was revealed in a lawsuit that she admitted using the N-word and other racial slurs in front of her employees.

In addition, if you understood anything about the economy, we usually start to see the results of economic activities, a couple of years after the activity starts.

The U.S. Department of Education plans to investigate a "Redneck Day" celebration at an Arizona high school that caused a stir among civil rights activists, the Arizona Republic reported Thursday.
Back in May, a student at Queen Creek High School wore a Confederate flag on "Redneck Day," which was part of the school's "spirit week." The student was asked to change his clothing, according to the school's superintendent.
The DOE's Civil Rights office said that the investigation "will be limited to whether a racially hostile environment was created due to language and actions that were not protected by the First Amendment" in the case of the Confederate flag, according to the Arizona Republic.
So what, nothing illegal here.

Government wasting more time and money.

More Democrat corruption:
Huma Abedin, wife of disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner and former deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, had 'special government employee status' that enabled her to rake in $135,000 from taxpayers and another $355,000 from a company with former President Bill Clinton as a board member.
Huma Abedin, Hillary's Muslim body woman, is the poster child for abused women.

Uncannny. The grandstanding by this Attorney General pitting the federal government against this state or that state.
Seems there's now a war on states.
Don't know about you but I haven't heard one word from this administration about Detroit going belly up. Seems that state would be first and foremost on their minds - not Texas.
This administration's blunders, flexing their muscles, abusing their power, creating anger and rife between the American people - it's like nothing we've ever seen before.
Time for them to go.

Let Detroit Go BankruptBy MITT ROMNEY
Published: November 18, 2008
Times Topics: Automotive Industry Crisis | Mitt RomneyIF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.

Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

Holder is asking San Antonio Judges to help him and obama turn Texas democrat through their voter fraud. Holder says he doesn't agree with the supreme court decision.
Wish it was that easy because I don't agree with obama care either.
Funny how this administration ignores rule of law and won't prosecute the black panthers for voting violations-what, I guess because the black thug with the billy club looks just like he could be obama's son just like trayvon.

You would love this grocer. He is hiring more folks. He has to to ensure that employees do not work more than 30 hours per week. Makes president nobama look good he is hiring.
The BLS lists PT as a separate category than full time.

Evidently the cheap ass grocer pays no health insurance to anyone & dumps his employees to utilize services that sometimes we end up paying for. Your kind of person, moocher Eed.

Where is Homey and his propaganda on housing:
Nearly one-third of the homeowners who got help through the government's main foreclosure prevention program are defaulting again on their mortgages, according to a government watchdog's report.
The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) has worked on 1.2 million mortgage modifications since it started four years ago. Of those, more than 306,000 borrowers have defaulted again on their loans, and another 88,000 are at risk as well, reports CNN.
The Special Inspector for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP), which conducted the review, said homeowners are also more likely to default again on the modified loans the longer they stay in the program, with 46 percent of those involved in the program since 2009 defaulting on their loans again.
The re-defaults have cost taxpayers some $815 million, according to SIGTARP. So far, the Treasury Department has allocated $19.1 billion to HAMP, and $4.4 billion has been spent. The program was recently extended for another two years, until the end of 2015.
The Obama administration's Treasury Department created HAMP to help borrowers avoid foreclosure by making their house payments more affordable through a combination of reduced mortgage principals and interest rates and extended loan terms.
But borrowers are dropping out of the program as they default again on their loans, and SIGTARP Director Christy Romero said Treasury needs to research why so many people drop out of a program that kept their homes safe from foreclosure.
People who default are following "clear patterns," the SIGTARP report found. For example, homeowners most likely to default again are the ones who got the smallest reductions in their mortgages, who were still "underwater" on their mortgages, or who had subprime credit scores and high debt when their mortgages were modified.
*See liberals? you can't give the same dead beats, who were never qualified for housing, to qualify again. CRA screwed all taxpayers. Liberalism never works.
Require a 20% cash down payment on houses (and minimum 20% cash equity after refinancing) and the default problem will go away.

Using one's home as a piggy bank to finance one's lifestyle is a huge mistake.
