    Do you realize how much it takes to do adequate maintenance on a vehicle? A car is an investment, not a toy.
    People have to have a way to get to and from their respective workplace though... (I'm talking about adults that are supporting themselves, not some kid who just turned 18)
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    You must be ignoring our current economy when you wrote this.

    I don't think that is relevant to the discussion. FYI, I think one can assume that I'm not some kid on the internet with the way I articulate my writing.

    Actually I was assuming that since you have to keep going back changing what you say and since you really have no clue where you lie politically.

    That's why most people who don't own a car either walk, bike, or take public transportation. I don't recognize the "right" to own a free vehicle provided by the state. If you're too poor to buy a vehicle, how are you going to by motor and engine oil? Gasoline? Is the taxpayer supposed to subsidize that as well?

    Many people who have jobs don't NEED to drive to work to get to work.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I could only name one. One of my neighbors runs a business where he does house repair work.

    This is the last time I will address this Josie. Please stop bringing up my age. I'm not going to tell you it. If I "politically lie" please let me know so I can change my political opinion. BTW, you should really look up the definition of lying before you throw the term around. For someone to lie, they must intentionally know that they are deceiving the other person and make no effort to retract their statement when they find out they are wrong.
