I also admired this man; I really wish he had picked a different running mate in 2007 though. While I'm still not sure he would have won against Obama, he would have stood a much better chance had he chosen Lieberman and been the first truly centrist candidate in well over a generation.

If he was only 20 years younger, he might have been able keep the Republican party focused on their classical ideals than the mishmash they have today (tax cuts + spend a shit ton of money + protectionism!)

NAFTA killed the Auto industry in this country, and this administration is bringing it back to us. Good jobs, good wages, made in America. My thunder chickens proudly wear the Lorraine Assembly Plant stickers, and maybe some day in the future more cars will too.

No politics, guys.

You get Banned, even us Mods.

Cars, we can agree on.

Religion, Politics, (and Sex, Probably, these days), need to stay elsewhere.

IDK, a link to pornhub might pass, depends on the Mod, and contents of said link, lol.


No Tubgirl or Goatse links, please.

EDIT: I chewed this over, and realized I might have left a bad impression, in a way.

Eulogizing politicians is Absolutely OK, just leave Out the "Hot button Topics" that remove us from the Main Objective of Memorializing their Service.

And I doubt very seriously anyone is going to debate "Hanoi Jane", which Would be on topic for this conversation. (who? Google seems confused, but I remember Jane Fonda doing a Traitorous tour of Hanoi, while John McCain was imprisoned there, Sorry Bitch.)

But if you want to debate 50 year or older politics involving War Heros , I'm certainly cool with that. But others may not be.
