But now Obama is giving it to the bums who drove gas guzzlers during that
same decade. So where is the fairness to that? As a matter of fact, it's my
$4500 he's giving to them......

Only because Barry Goldwater and William F. Buckley are both dead.

Most of the remaining leading "conservatives" are honorless twits such
as Sarah Palin who are addicted to pandering to the lowest common
denominator, and who wouldn't know the Constitution from a roll of
toilet paper without a quick refresher course on bathroom accessories.

Your description of "paradise" could be of thousands of places around
the world. In the places you've been to, you obviously haven't had the
time, desire, open-mindedness or perspicacity to see their good sides.

And by the way, where I live I don't feel the need to own a gun to
defend myself (very little violent crime), I pay a pittance for what is
probably better health care than BG has and, and, and... (the list
could become *very* long!)
