    Higher prevalence of 15k trucks, cheaper gas, better life.
    Shitheads ballooned the market through the roof, now they are taking out seven year loans on vehicles to keep it airborne - when it crashes, even the used garbage they litter the landscape with will be bankrupting to own and run.
    I just pointed out it wouldn't change.
    Besides: You don't? Really?

    And to the point: nobody says we have to give anybody anything - we just have to prevent disproportionate wealth and income accumulation at the top. How that is done is another question.
    Reasonable people can disagree on the tactics. Historically, we know how the US managed it for two economic generations ending in 1981 - historically, we know how it was accomplished in other places and times (war, plague, and natural disaster the chief means). We have a democracy, we have a choice.

    And Ice steps in to throttle discussion and ruin the thread, as he does so often.

    Why the fuck don't you run alongside Alexandria, and cure the world's problems? You're damned sure of everything, because your primary programming language is PEBCAK.

    and here we have the cauldron calling the kettle black. while i'll be the first to agree that ice is arrogant, insulting, dishonest, pathologically incapable of admitting anyone else point of view has validity if it disagrees with him and is entirely too enamored with his own cleverness and opinion; you are no better, in fact your far worse. Ice at least added something to the debate. You've spent most of your time in this thread bitching and moaning and not adding anything. You've done more to throttle discussion.

    yes yes i know your going to swear and make personal attacks its all you got. try some introspection it do you good.

    Maybe I overreacted, but the dude just pisses me off. Too bad. No apology.

    Senators supporting their own special interests - that's pretty much the definition of bloated bloviating assholes.
    Because you live in a capitalist society. And if your landlord inherited your building you have to pay him big bucks - even if his only apparent ability is to smoke crack with your money.

    Senators are supposed to promote the interests of their home states. I didn't say that they do their jobs anymore.

    OK. Sounds like they are supposed to be a bloated bloviating corral full of assholes, then. Because looking out for special interests and the largest local contributors is a big part of what makes them assholes.
