  1. I always think of this song when I see McCain from Black Sabbath, who coincidently also wrote Iron Man Generals gathered in their masses Just like witches at black masses Evil minds that plot destruction Sorcerers of deaths construction In the fields the bodies burning As the war machine keeps turning Death and hatred to mankind Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah! Politicians hide themselves away They only started the war Why should they go out to fight? They leave that role to the poor Time will tell on their power minds Making war just for fun Treating people just like pawns
  2. Two sides to each story. It's enough to be there without acknowledging each soldier for their efforts. This could be perceived as more of a faux pau then a snubbing or a true reflection of poor character. Did he not spend enough time, did he walk too fast, did he not salute properly, did his socks match his pants? Who cares?!? Let's get back to the most important issue. Does Capt. Jeff think it's best for us to be in Iraq for the next 12 months or for the next 12 years? That's one of the key issues that actually impacts our soldiers and all of us.
  3. Someone watches Fox News I think this election will be a yeardstick to measure how far we have come as a society. Clearly there were multiple blunders of the previous administration and it should be a lay-up for Democrats but there is a wild card. No, definitely not McCain. The wildcard is our own ignorance and prejudice as a people. I was speaking with a die-hard democrat in her late 70s the other day who backed Hillary. I asked what would happen if Clinton didn't get the nomination. She said she wasn't sure, "I don't want one of them in the White House!" I probed her as to what "th
  4. Let me first off start by thanking Chuck for his time and efforts in building, maintaining, and baby sitting this site. The community and knowledge far surpasses what I have found anywhere else. If only there was more S60 exposure (which will eventually happen) I would be here more often. BTW Chuck, your post kind of got me amped up and I will soon renew my "supporting member" status that just lapsed so I can help support this forum. About George and Viva...I honestly have little problem with him as a person. I cannot fault him for trying to appeal to a more affluent clientele and pedal h
  5. Looks like you had a good Christmas Mike. Lots of Volvo goodies uner the tree. Have fun with the install, I'll keep tabs on the progress.
  6. Soooo jealous right now. I chased a 70 year-old lady down 3 weeks ago to ask her if she wanted to sell her saffron V. Too bad the answer was "no!". That combo is my favorite 70 series. Congrats again. P.S. For what it's worth I like the XC grill on thr VR, it ties in nicely with the mesh in the lower bumper.
  7. Yesterday I saw 2 Ferraris, 1 Lambo, and a Porsche Carrara GT. living in S. FL is ridiculous! I caught this on the highway the other day.
  8. That sucks, glad you turned the car off when you did. I had something similar happen 2 weeks ago when I was on the FL turnpike. A 2X4 got flipped up from a car in-front of me. I saw it coming at my windshield but there was nothing I could do, concrete wall on one side, garbage truck on the other. It came down on my front bumper and continued to tumble end over end under my car breaking the plactic oil pan guard and it actually tossed the backend up in the air. That's not something I want to experience again (especially when doing 70 + mph). The IPD skidplate will be ordered soon. It
  9. What is the plate on the passenger side for?
  10. Interesting, I was expecting the huge wing on the back.
  11. My brother-in-law was driving down a dark road, around 2am, back to town one night several years ago and what they thought was a deer ran infront of the car. It came from the woods and jumped right into the windsheild. They pulled over to the shoulder. My sister was freaking out because there was glass all around the cabin and my brother-in-law got out to check the car. The front was trashed as was the windsheild. He decided to check on the deer to make sure it was dead....turns out it wasn't a deer. After the investigation they found that the guy that jumped into their car was walking
  12. Seagrams makes me sick too...you are talking about the winecoolers right?
  13. I'm thinking about lambo doors in the front and suicide-doors in the back. i must be drunk! I think it would be the bomb-biggity on a wagon.
  14. Update, chicks left and so did the knowledgable, sage like, older dude. Now I'm alone, save the busted chicks at the end of the bar with the 7 pack/day smoker voice. Shoot me...or just order another wiskey. PS. I've always wanted to say this, I'm going to beat my hotdog like it owes mw money.
  15. Oh snaps, I'm drunk. Talking to a 60 year old ex portfolio manager for Meriil Lynch....wild
  16. Yeehaaa! I love having a blackberry. I am sitting at the bar now 6 Jameson whiskeys deep and within stumbling distance from my hotel room. Yay...bacherlorette party just walked in. 7 total, 1 smokin asian, 2 pretty hot, 3 homely chicks, and a fatty. I need at least 2 more drinks before I either talk to them and make an ars of myself or I fall down trying to get off my bar stool.
  17. It's not even 4, I'm sitting in the Airport with 2 double Bombay Saphire G&Ts down, and I' on VS...Darn I love my new job. I'm going for another double before I board...hee hee. Wow, a 40+ year-old Milf just made a double take, too bad about the gunt (or fupa for those of you who prefer acronyms). Peace Ft. Myers, FL....here I come Philly!!!!!!!!!!!
  18. Are the Columbia Christians the same ones that saw the virgin Mary's image on a piece of toast and drew worshippers from hundreds of miles away? I can't remember.
  19. There wasn't much pot smoking there but there was some drinking. It did bring the issue to the forefront of discussion among people who would have never known/cared about Africa. I was in Africa 6 months ago and my stepfather has worked there for the past 4 years (about 6months/year) trying to develop better ways to procure and distribute medicine for anything from Malaria to HIV. The people are so impoverished and in need of outside help that it is gut wrenching to see. A lot has changed since the 70s and 80s but still there is quite a ways to go. You are right, the corruption is ram
  20. Oil companies would never gouge anyone...they are just passing the higher cost of crude onto the consumer and still netting the same amount...just ask them. Oh....wait...then why did Exxon Mobil post record profits for the 1st quarter, $7.86 Billion in NET Income, a 44% profit gain? Royal Dutch had a 28% gain. Consumer so confused :blink:
