    And they pay te light bill, too. I know it sucks for folks like you, but we live in a free country.



    What are they to do? Get a subprime mortgage?
    Bull, most 4x4 trucks in the USA never even see dirt. IF it wasn't for wet boat ramps, even people in LA wouldn't need them.. Yes, you are free to pay high prices, and they will get higher, and then you and so many others who can't think ahead will whine about the power companies ripping you off.

    It should be intuitively obvious to the most casually educated observer that getting to work involves transportation and is necessary.
    You are familiar with Marx and Engels? Learn that in home school, did you?

    When it was available, I rode in a van, or a bus, or a carpool....and that would be a LOT of my working life. When you work at a nuclear facility, you have a long commute. Can't be having such things in people's back yards...

    Prove that most people that own 3/4 ton trucks, or bigger, with, or without four-wheel-drive don't need them.

    I don't whine about power companies ripping us off. I whine about the government ripping us off, which is the case.

    Actaully, I learned in public school.

    BTW, I don't own a FWD. I have a two wheel drive that pulls out of wet boat ramps just fine. It pulls my 21' bay boat like a champ, too.

    Good for you. When I was in service and lived on post I rode a bicycle to my unit, unless it was foul weather.
