    How high does the price of gasoline have to get before it is a cure-all? Does $15. a gallon scare you onto mass transit? Maybe $5.00 and hour parking? At what point does your machine become the supplemental assist?

    So you are satisfied with the old horse & buggy, the slower lifestyle, the less efficient productivity, higher product costs, and mass annual deaths on highways. And making a better America is laughable. Why does Archie Bunker come to mind when I read your posts? LOL!

    yup. that's what the American people want. and i happen to cling to this quaint notion that they are in charge. but i don't see the individual freedom present in driving your own vehicle to be anything that you describe - on the contrary i find it to be (perhaps uniquely) American. socialized transportation is no better than socialized food or any other such foolish endevour.

    snopes confirms the loan was approved, and merely points out that Obama wasn't responsible - bureacrats were. it's still "our" money they're loaning - hence the "we" that you questioned.

    nope, i hope that WSJ issued a retraction - and i would absolutely hold them responsible if they didn't. but WSJ is neither a birther or a bigot. trying to connect the two is no more legitimate than me pointing out that you had problems with Bush and so did the 9/11 truthers.
