    Right, mom needs a three ton, fuel sucking behemoth to shuttle around a 30 pound kid and his friends.

    Once again spoken like a true lib, YOU should decide what mom needs not mom.

    As I mentioned earlier, MOM decides she doesn't need it when fuel prices drop -- stupidly forgetting that fuel prices don't stay low for long.

    The true wingnut cries that you can pry the wheel of his Navigator from his cold, dead hands ... while he whines about the price of gas.

    You still don't get it. If mom makes the decision to buy a big car when gas prices fall that is her decision to make. Freedom means you make your decisions and you live with the consequences of them for better or worse and maybe mom doesn't care what gas cost, maybe she just wants alot of steel around little Johnny. Who are you to demand she put him in a little car that a pickup will roll over like a speed bump.

    Let the market decide, always the best policy.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It doesn't matter what mom needs, any more than it matters what you think mom needs. If mom makes a mistake and finds she can no longer afford gas, she will move to a smaller vehicle, decide to ride bike, or walk. Again, not your decision.

    If mom wants to drive heavy earth moving equipment to Chilis that's fine by me ... but she should STFU about how much it costs her to fill up her tanker when prices go back up.

    You could have all three and it wouldn't move the price of gas more than a few pennies on the gallon.
