    I drive a Ford, and always have. Probably always will.
    I was also real proud of them for making it without a bailout.
    Don't know what this has to do with generosity though.
    generosity to who?

    And you believe the money would go to paying down the debt?

    What does giving money to charities prove?

    That's the truth. People think I'm an idiot for voting against my own best interests, so I know it's not that common.
    Those freebies dangling like carrots can look tempting, but at this rate they won't last. People will be out in the streets rioting for things that they never earned in the first place. Look at Greece. People didn't know how to live without handouts. That's where we are headed with all the dependents we are spawning.

    I have never had a car that was a lemon, and they were all American brands. Been driving and owning since 1966. Closest car to being a lemon is our 2000 Impala, 75K miles, and I have paid about $900 to $1000 in repairs....power window motor, heater core, ignition switch.....basically it has been reliable for 11 years, I will keep it for another 9 years at least. American cars may not compare favorably to foreign cars, but that is because the standard is all about luxury, gadgets, electronics, etc.
    That is however part of the package.
    No, the engineering in foreign cars is better.

    If all you need a car to do is get you there and back comfortably and safely, American cars will suffice.
    So will Volkswagen cars and they are hardly about luxury. You can't even get leather seats anymore in them for example. D:

    I highly doubt any of you have ever refused to take federal grant money for education, refused to take federal or state tax refunds from the government, refused to claim the earned income credit, making work pay credit, retirement savings credit, or the child tax credit when you qualified, insisted on paying the government for services like requesting a copy of SS card despite nobody has to, driving strictly on toll roads whenever you can, or refusing public education for your children despite how you all love to bitch on and on about how awful the public education system is....

    You're calling Obama a hypocrite, but by the very same standards all of you are probably hypocrites yourselves...
    Obama is a hypocrite because he got on National television and said he, personally could afford to pay more taxes.
    So why didn't he? Why did he instead take every deduction or loophole available to him to keep from paying more?

    Bush didn't veto Brady Bill, he let it set on his desk to hand Clinton. Good question though. Why didn't Bush veto it?
    and who banned assault weapons-Bush merely banned the import-those made in America were only banned by clinton

    try again, you failed totally on this point
    A complete win, because I proved my point that looney righties are just as guilty of gun control as lefties.. A WIN. And with 6 years of dictatorial control, the right and NRA did not restore the 2nd Amendment by recinding all gun laws. Just shows how republicans fear guns in American hands. Another Winning point!
