My predictions

Throughout this thread there are some unanswered questions, so.......

I predict that:

1. They'll find that the squid were killed by the gas let loose by undersea volcanoes that were activated by the Indoniesan earthquake.

2. All the rain received in California is to make it easier to slide into the ocean when the "big one" hits.

3. President Bush will continue to make decisions the best he knows how, and someone will disagree with him.

4. We will continue to loose our citizens to war, cancer, drunk drivers, natural disasters and stupidity (i.e. skiing in an avalanche zone).

5. I will eventually get the drapes made for my Sovereign.

Have a nice day!

This might be of interest to the Airstreamers. Senate bill 2005-SB-5113 will premit the Dept of Ecology authority to charge us for rain water runoff. If it is collected in a cistern or rain barrel. I know a few people who do that. Goverment is getting out of hand.

Now I know how goofy rumors get started.

If you would read the bill, you might understand that it's purpose is exactly the opposite of what you are claiming.

1380 Days & you get to vote again!

24 Hours of flame ... uh, er ... fame I mean.

If Kinky Friedman can switch to knock off Jeb in Florida I am sure Spongebob & Hillary will be the subjects of equal controversy from the Red direction when they win the next one.

I'm starting the H. R. Clinton thread tomorrow, serve you right you gosh darned rattzle-frazzles....

Didn't we say polly-ticks don't make good bed mates? (twin or double? SpaceFoam or Bearbeds? Safari or Classic? Gas or Diesel? Ford or GM?*)

I think he answered that question when we entered Iraq without "permission" from Russia, France, and the rest of the people around the world.

The WMD's were probably smuggled into one of the neighboring countries at the last minute or are hidden in another very large spider hole somewhere else in Iraq.

Any National Guard folks on here. Did I hear on TV today that they are only eligible for something like $12,500 govt. life insurance for war time vs. $250,000 for active military. I came in on the end of a piece and it didn't sound right.

Un-sorry that 'Sorry' Chris

I've just run into Minneapolis and back (70 miles each way) in a sharp 8" snowstorm and subsequent ground blizzard from 30mph winds. So I'm a bit wired and wide awake -- I'll have some clotted cream on my muesli if you are serving...

Being one of the 49-percenters in our country I didn't know I'd be so upset last night. T'waren't fun!

Confusing, n'est ce pas? I can't name names because the posters I disagree with most do a great job the other 99% of the time. You saw some respectful (well, almost...) opposition degenerate into having fun again. I'm feeling a whole lot better about this tonight!

But who could say it better (don't Google on 'bushism' or you'll burn up your Saturday):
Quote:
"I always jest to people, the Oval Office is the kind of place where people stand outside, they're getting ready to come in and tell me what for, and they walk in and get overwhelmed by the atmosphere. And they say 'man, you're looking pretty.' "—Washington, D.C., Nov. 4, 2004
I don't know what it means but we are getting back to normal -- nobody but you could have started such fun!



[By way of explanation:
Kinky Friedman was a 'unique' singer in the late '70's (I will say no more). He is a rancher, raconteur and general rabble-rowser -- living in my native Texas and swearing he'll run for governor.
You just about can't do anything more to fire up a Red voter (gawd I hate those color analogies) than invoke the name of Hillary Clinton. I don't know why... ]

Fix Or Repair Daily As far as George Bush goes (after all it is the subject at hand) we don't have to agree with everything he does and one thing that I disagree with him is his choice of vehicles - he drives a Ford - although his gov't issue vehicle (the limo) is a GM product.

I've been reading this post right along and have decided not to argue.

But I DO have a question.. are Airstream owners generally red, or blue?

I wonder if it changes with new vs Classic/Vintage people?

This could be the mother of all debate threads. Throw in Ford/Chevy and PC/Mac debates and we're there.

I hate the whole red & blue thing. People think if they know who you voted for, they know all they need to about you. As if that sums it all up nicely. It completely ignores the fact that people have different issues that matter most to them, and tries to sum it all up in a simple color. If you know what 'color' someone is, you know all you need to to know if you like them or not. Obviously this oversimplifies the issue! But hey, we Americans like it simple, don't we?

However, the fact is that knowing if someone is red or blue doesn't tell you much of anything about them at all. Which is why we all get along pretty well the rest of the time when we're not talking politics. We all have more in common than we have differences. We all want to be safe, secure, healthy and wealthy enough to live the way we choose. The best way to reach those goals are where we might have different opinions. Even with differeing opinions I know most people aren't all that extreme in their views as the vocal minority. But enough with the labels!
