Then the day you go for the 40 foot Bayliner, no prob, eh?.
” I still recommend an F-350 to pull the boat.”
I’m looking at a F-350 on friday.
I myself looked at an F-350 a couple weeks ago. In the driveway.
It belonged to a bro who owns a big Bayliner.
He showed up this week with a Cuda Hemi. S’okay.
His babe’s Toy can pull the boat.
I’ll stick with my Tokyo Toy 32-OHV alum block V-8. I suppose I’ll feel ashamed when she stops screaming at 250K+ miles and I have to turn her in on the latest screamer. (Oh, and no. It’s not a truck, and I don’t own a boat. I just like acceleration, well, and noise, gunner - scary).
You funny guy.
I buy you dinner at City Wok.
“I myself looked at an F-350 a couple weeks ago. In the driveway.

Oh yes. Spent a weekend at Powell in his Bayliner with both our families boat camping, and spent my birthday at Jordanelle in a thunderstorm. Just amazing. Both occasions, we woke up and dragged the adult skiers and then the kids (on water-weenies) at 40 knots across the 80 degree glass in the morning.
He built that. Love my bro. (Though I seriously try to subdue my boat lust.)
Yep, IMO these are the questions we should be asking.
“IMO these are the questions we should be asking.”
Absolutely, D1 &sjb!
Should we ask our overlords? Here’s the action:

They actually pay me to play with this internet thingy.
We’re only ‘for the most part’ dealing with idiots. The remainder are evil, ruthless, power-hungry sons-of-bitches who’ll stop at nothing.
True -- You or I can sit on our couch and yell potent replies to Obambi at the TV, but we have the advantage of not being under the enormous pressure of a national debate, and not having to worry if just one little wrong word slips out.
Romney, once he hit his stride, did well debating Gingrich, and that's no small accomplishment.
True, but, I was thinking of a Republican, or maybe a group of Republicans, who would “surprise” the “average” voters by making such a statement, and would almost have to be heard. VP Cheney comes to mind, but I don’t know if he has the “weight” with the MSM by himself to make a big splash. Maybe Cheney + Condi Rice + Rumsfeld + Gingrich + Bolton? Perhaps throw in a couple Governors like Christie or Haley. Maybe Fred Thompson would join in (background from Watergate, and “gravitas”). So it’s mostly people have been on the inside and know how it works (or should work), and then have a couple types in there (Gingrich, Christie) who can take Obambi MSM types and twist them into pretzels at the news conference.
I do not disagree with you on that, but, it also true that Bush grew the Gov’t too much, created too much additional debt, etc. Those things certainly contributed to a vulnerable economy. Romney could hit Obama on all that, your and my points both. With regard to Fed. gov’t growth and debt, Romney can argue effectively that Obama is Bush on steroids, and warn of the dire consequences...
Yes, that's my point. It seems to be particularly true of services. The gov't steps in to "help" ostensibly poorer citizens, and the next thing you know, no one but the rich can afford that service without help!
The gov't screws up the supply - demand equation, and gains control and political power by doing so.
Some forms of subsidies, like Ag subsidies, don't work quite that way with respect to consumer prices, though it's certain they function to hide the true cost of the subsidized item and transfer it to others in the form of taxes. Plus, the factors of political power and control also still apply.
Gov't inflates prices in many other ways, of course. I looked at new and then, of necessity, used car prices recently, and nearly fell over. (Even after a lot of the "deals" and discounts were applied.) You can't tell me that the gov't pouring money in, and Cash for Clunkers taking hundreds of thousands of perfectly good cars off the road, not to mention a host of gov't regulations and requirements, did not artificially run up auto prices.
Not everyone is capable of keeping a high-skilled job, and Barack Obama is the poster child for that little factoid.
Heh, well, the 2nd part of that aside, that is an EXCELLENT point. There are many people, maybe most people, most of them wonderful people, who could not with all the training and education in the world, do the job I do. In turn, I probably could not do the jobs some of them do -- I've taken brief stints on a production line, and it's ok for a few days or so, if need be, but if I had to do it for years, I might come apart at the seams! Other jobs I simply do not have the physical attributes to do. Or, if my job involved lying, I'd fail miserably. Or worse. :-)
There are many jobs in manufacturing, and not necessarily "high tech", that can pay far better than flipping burgers at MacDonalds. Yes, that's even in competition with the Chinese, if the playing field is more nearly level, and if the company is "on its toes". Yet President Obama would, apparently, give up on those manufacturing jobs for people who are well suited to do them. What and where does that leave such a person? (Probably flipping burgers beside the engineer who lost his job too, because Obama won't fight for the *expletive deleted* jobs, and now virtually all the manufacturing of that product, and even many of the engineering & technical jobs, have gone to China. I'm all too familiar with that story...)
The issue was the Rose Garden statement, which Romney stupidly overreacted to, and acted like a Democrat. It was a BAD moment. While Obama did not call it a terrorist act, he used the word “terror,” while talking about. The parsing that has to be done to say Romney was right is a major waste of energy.

The latest, of course, was the “go to the script, Candy”.
You are correct, they stop at nothing.
Good catch with this article. Obama lied from the get go, and we have plenty of evidence to support the claim. Nobody saw that stupid video, it was the pawn for the coverup.
