I drive an F150, and I'd like to see a Prius drag a face cord of wood out of the field. How about a water heater or fridge? Status symbol? Maybe for some idiots, but around here we call ‘em TOOLS! Sheez, what BS. There are several very good reasons why I drive a 4WD pickup, and status ain't one of them.

What some Prius fan calls status symbol, you call a basic TOOL.

I live in Eastern PA, and we are overun with liberals around here. People really liked both Hillary and Obama during the Primary. Ed Rendell is our governor, and dead people vote in Phila. It’s unlikely McCain will have a prayer in PA...

The Obama supporters are bad enough but the Third Party
folks who want to punish the GOP and doing their dirt here on FR to divide republicans and ensure the Obama Marxist victory.

They really think there will be a next time to vote.
They have no clue or don’t want one as to what Obama will
do to this country.

We stayed at the Emerald Plaza downtown, but I read it was bought by Westin. We went to lunch at the beautiful Coronado Hotel. What a setting...

Does McCain go there often? Didn’t a lot of Navy people retire to Coronado Island?

North Island Naval Air Base is on Coronado and
on the Eastern edge on San Diego Bay is where the
aircraft carriers are based, USS Reagan, USS Nimitz and others.

McCain’s grandfather was based there and died there.

Mitt Romney just bought a home in San Diego in the La Jolla area.
One of his sons and family also live here.
Some think he is thinking of running for Calif. gov.

The major Naval Amphibious base is also on Coronado and home of the Navy Seals.

Between the Marines and Navy, San Diego has the largest number of active and ret. military of any city.

They have added more ventage planes and choppers.
It is the largest museum of its kind.

I live less than 3 miles where it is located.

That segment was difficult to listen to. Thank goodness that was just defeated in Congress.

That segment was difficult to listen to.

That it was in several aspects. The fact that our Politicians can actually push for it and that the talking heads accept it and try to decide which one is the better.

Got to say I was disappointed in JB on that one.

It might be me, but his new program seems more anti-President Bush than before. Even his right-of-center guests, while informed, have the need to preface their statements and opinions with a disclaimer. John Fund is always a pleasure to listen to.
