Stay at home soccer moms will have to downsize from their big SUVs and trucks to something more fuel efficient.

Commuters will have to do the same, finally realizing that all that extra seating and hauling capacity really are not needed for a single person driving to work five days a week.

Who knows, with fewer and smaller vehicles for day to day driving requirements, garages will get smaller on new homes.

I'd like to thank George Bush and his Republican Reich for giving us a $10 trillion deficit, a worthless dollar, an economy that's in the toilet, skyrocketing gas prices, a false war, losing Americas' honor, corruption on a grand scale, a record number of earmarks, rampant cronyism and increasing the American budget from $2 trillion in '02 to more than $3 trillion in '08. He has easily won the WORST PRESIDENT EVER Award and should be impeached and tried for his crimes against the American people.

In your dreams. We who can afford the SUVs know how to manage our finances, live within a budget and can accommodate price fluctuations without crying to the government to "bail us out."
I highly recommend you join all the other smelly hippies, thugs and gang-bangers on mass transit and leave a little more room for us in our crime free SUVs.

It's entertaining to watch all the jack pine savages tooling around the Cities in their big trucks and SUVs like some north woods dictators or potentates.
Since the economy is slowing down and they never really could afford those payments, I think I'll take a look at Carsoup to see what's available.

You sound like a tofu eating, bicycle riding hippie.
Carsoup will contain listings for SUVs purchased using home equity loans.
Those of us who budget do not panic about a "bump" in prices at the pump.

Congress and the White House, Democrats and Republicans finally agree on something!(be afraid)

They claim the economy is stagnating, unemployment is climbing, families can’t pay their bills. We have to "prime the pump", reduce interest rates, increase unemployment benefits, provide temporary tax relief.
These unlicensed physicians are prescribing aspirin to counteract the poisons they routinely inject into our economy, while they prepare even bigger doses of arsenic.

Every one of these supposed shots of economic adrenaline is counteracted by toxic policies that drive up prices, cause layoffs and put families on energy welfare. It would be laughable, if it weren’t so hypocritical.

Oil, gas, coal and other resources on America’s citizen-owned public lands could meet US energy needs for centuries. Developing these resources – with full regard for ecological values – would generate jobs, economic growth and tax revenues, stabilize energy prices, and reduce our need to buy oil from unfriendly countries.
Onshore and offshore public lands could hold enough oil to produce gasoline for 60 million cars and fuel oil for 25 million homes for 60 years – and enough natural gas to heat 60 million homes for 160 years.

But Energy Killer legislators, regulators, courts and eco activists have made most of them unavailable to the workers and families who own them. In addition, a Utah area with a trillion dollars worth of public coal was placed off-limits by President Clinton. Nuclear power has been in a regulatory stranglehold for decades. And activists blocked construction of dozens of coal-fired electricity plants in 2007.
The “energy” legislation President Bush just signed doesn’t foster the production of a single drop of oil, whiff of natural gas, or kilowatt of new coal or nuclear power. No wonder OPEC ministers rejected his plea to increase oil production. Instead, the bill:

* Adds $6,000 to the price of new cars, while reducing passenger safety, by forcing manufacturers to downsize cars to meet 35 mpg ratings;
* Replaces billions of incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent lights, necessitating expensive recycling facilities that can safely handle the mercury in each CFL;
* Increases ethanol production to 35 billion gallons a year – five times what we produced last year from corn grown on an area the size of Indiana, using 42 billion gallons of water and 5 billion gallons of petroleum (for fertilizers, pesticides and fuel);
* Promotes wind power – although generating enough electricity to power New York City requires huge turbines across an area the size of Connecticut, and they only work eight hours a day on average.

Because they keep our oil and gas locked up, these actions mean every barrel of oil “saved” via these “eco-friendly” measures is offset by reserves we use up and don’t replace. They create a huge energy gap between what we need – and what politicians let us have. Between real energy from fossil fuel, nuclear and hydroelectric power (96% of today’s energy)– and imaginary energy that politicians promise will someday come from wind, solar and ethanol (less than 1% today).
Worse, every ounce of “stimulus” is offset by a pound of new government arsenic.

Who'd you steal this one from, Red Ryder? As long as you keep ripping off other people's writing and passing it off as your own, I'm going to keep asking you to stop plagiarizing. Try to have an original thought....just once. Or at least try giving credit where credit is due.

If it was "borrowed," then yes, credit should be noted. But I still enjoyed his/her post.

Thank you veteran for serving our country, willing to sacrifice your life to defend America's freedom and liberty.
Those who know me on these forums can attest that I despise the mass transit system for it is filled with smelly hippies, thugs and gang-bangers.
In a way, I look forward to the higher prices at the pump. The sheeple will flock to mass transit and that will leave more room for me in my crime free H2 on the road.

STOLE STUDENTS' WORK AT COLUMBIA

February 21, 2008 -- The black Columbia University professor who last fall found a hangman's noose pinned to her office door plagiarized the work of another faculty member and two students, according to a school investigation released yesterday.

The plagiarism probe was already under way last year when a 4-foot twine noose was discovered on the door of psychology and education professor Madonna Constantine's office, officials at the university's Teachers College said.

Way to write a post filled with negative terms for anyone you disagree with. It's funny how some people can only make negative comments without addressing the issue. Always appreciated.

Did Hillary Clinton Plagiarize Representative Steve Israel in Last Night's Debate?

http://www.economicanalyticsgroup.com/hillary...

A private newsletter on the economy is charging that Senator Hillary Clinton may have plagiarized a New York's Congressman's words,during last night's debate.

Just a few short minutes after attacking Senator Barack Obama for plagiarism... Senator Hillary Clinton may have engaged in a bit of plagiarism of her own, writes Robert Wegner in today's issue of Wegner's Private Report on the Economy, when Senator Clinton uttered the words:

"We borrow money from the Chinese to buy oil from the Saudis."

They appear to be originally the words of Congressman Steve Israel (D- NY).

So, only feminists are against stealing other people's ideas? Nice way to evade the issue. As long as you start actually citing the sources you're stealing from, instead of pretending you wrote them yourself, you can continue to call me a feminist all you like (I don't consider it an insult).
