I know the old school people still write percent as "per cent". But this is ridiculous:

Bears hibernate and come out in force once in a while; Bulls are out in force and stampede in raging madness.
Bear need to understand that their times only come very rarely.

Re: all the talk about the magic Bush's election (I'm in the camp that holds he didn't win the first one) committee is working--all the lost jobs and the ensuing tidal wave can't be masked by the lying media and the big numbers in the stock market. People are not that stupid. Virtually everyone is being effected. If he does take the white house again it's thanks to the Diebold machines--they've got them in New York and California now. Can't help but wonder what life will be like after the election--no need to keep the ruse up anymore.

Because a) the brokers are good salesmen, the buyer is greedy to 'make the numbers' and c) everyone else is doing it and we can't get left behind.

I'm with ya dozer, also a 95 Jeep grand with the venerable 318 c.i. V-8. I don't need it to get out of my driveway but it pulls my boat and my RV with ease, gets me about 20 mpg solo and more manuverable than a cockroach. Unlike most SUV owners, mine actually sees a fair amount of dirt - hey this is Idaho! Those touting the fabulous fuel mileage of the imports should go look at the numbers, most of the newer Japanese trucks and SUVs are not really any better than their domestic counterparts and could actually be worse when worked hard like towing. Domestic cars do about the same as the imports when comparing apples to apples.
Mad Cow disease is news? Hell it's been evident on Wall Street for the last decade.

Solid axles front and rear have distinct off-road advantages....but then you probably never have explored that to the extent I have. It might be noted that Land Rover remains with solid axles in all but their baby model.
Damn happy with my 95 and would love to find another 95 with low miles. Things went to hell with the 96 and newer. The new body, like yours, doesn't work as well, they swept the windshield back too far and you feel more like you're sitting in a hole.

You are right on the money. And money is the tool of choose. Just put out all the money possible on the streets and let your friends take 10% of it as profit.
The only thing that will take down the bush reelection effort is an exteral force from out side the nation.
I would thing it may show up as the world not buying the shrinking USA$.
Time will take.

What is happening in the USA is a vapor economy. It is really not happening.
Just put $1 trillions out there. A large part of it is road construction, check out CAT. One billion to CSCO for a new fiber optic system. Do we really need an addition network.
Keep giving out free money under the 0%, 0%, 0% plan. Check out WHR.
Give companies tax breaks if they buy.
The vapor economy will last as long as the reelection bush thinks they need it.
Than like an thing out if vapor it will be gone

The great thing about the rest of the world is that they seem to like supporting the US in its quest for free money for its citizens.The Europeans(amongst others) are paying for it.
Where Americans get free credit,we still pay 15-20+% on credit card balances.Get a loan from a bonker and he'll charge 10% for the privilege.No 6-year interest-free cars here!
So that's why Europeans don't spend money..
