    The average Brit, imho, has been so conditioned over the past years and years they cannot and will not be rational. Ditto with most of our people here in the states. It has been only a little over 200 years since this country was founded. Yet, as an example, if you were to take a cross section of all our kids in grade school as well as high school. how many would be able to gut a deer much less butcher it? How many would know how to clean a fish? And, how many have parents or relatives that take them shooting? In short…it is my belief that overall we have become a nation of cowards, plain and simple. Oh! You can’t do that…you might get hurt. Or, Jimmie, take that apple out of your mouth. You know you aren’t supposed to eat anything that lays on the ground. Idiots!!! The whole damm bunch of them!

    Don’t blame God for those Corvettes, Claire. Looks more like Satan staged a repossession.

    I’ve long been superstitious about ‘Vettes, anyway. For years it seemed every owner I knew was bad news.

    Talk about the devil taking Vettes:
    Remember this?

    Gads. LarryA, that is sickening. Even if it were a Corvair or a Pinto instead of a ‘Vette. Still sickening. Such a waste.

    The program was stupid enough that I could have clunkered my 1999 Jeep Cherokee for a 2009 model. Even though I don’t romanticize cars (I’m more into guns) I couldn’t. Still driving the Jeep.

    And hope-n-change went downhill from there.

    I’m to blame for the cash for clunkers program (not really!).
    One evening I was trying to figure out the stupidest thing the government could do to “stimulate” the economy.
    The next morning I outlined my idea for the guys at work. And, a month later, the program was announced.

    Regarding the Nagin conviction.

    While I harbor no doubt Nagin is typical government trash…

    Does anyone else wonder why this happened?

    Is this a case of his stepping on the toes of the more-powerful?

    A case of tossing us the bone of a gov’t actor apparently being held to account, in order to dismiss accusations that that never happens?

    Does anyone think his corruption really stands out in relation to the usual behavior of the politically powerful?

    Interesting conflab over Nagin’s party affiliation. Basically, it confirms my suspicion that pols are slime or they wouldn’t be there in the first place.

    Does anyone notice that you could replace Nagin’s name with Obama and the descritions fit?

    I remember one thing about Nagin…that he used the Stasi to take guns from good people who stayed behind to protect themselves and their property. I will never forget that treachery and I don’t care that he is rotting behind bars. Good riddance.
