    People get fed up with change, just like they get fed up with the status quo. On average, we make a bit of progress every year. But, that’s just “on average”. Some years the progressive forces take us a bit too far and we rebel back to “the good old days”. A few years of that puts us in the mood for change again, and so it goes.

    I had the opportunity to drive a neighbor’s Pantera once. I’m a bit over 5’ 10". I couldn’t get into the thing. At the time I had an ’84 Lotus Turbo Esprit. Plenty of room for me to get in and out. I took it down to an automotive stereo store in Redondo Beach and the guy leaned way way over to look me in the eye and asked me why I needed a car that low to the ground! I laughed. The car was only 44" high.

    Ah, yes, the low price argument. Unfortunately, even at 50 cents a gallon, if nobody’s working, it’s still too expensive. Oh? The unemployment rate is at a 10 year low? I wonder what the rate is when you correct it for individual salaries. Just because an engineer finally gave in and went to work running a gas station doesn’t mean the economy has improved.

    There are jobs we don’t want back, such as smelting steel and reclaiming silver, gold, and (mostly lead) from circuit boards. But we need the IP jobs here so that we can afford to buy stuff made in America that employs Americans who buy stuff made in America.

    Unfortunately, the politicians will try to fix everything by increasing subsidies to colleges. Sadly, that only results in increased college costs for the very people they think they’re helping: those who would actually graduate if they could afford the tuition and other costs.

    My adult daughter still talks about the pleasure she got from arriving at school in the Lotus Turbo Esprit I used to have. Her preferred vehicle? Her 263HP Mazda. Maybe she’s having a midlife crisis a few decades early! =)

    Now that’s an experience that’ll mark you for life!

    I still don’t get the insistence on “midlife crisis”. I’m in my 60s and still have my Ducati. So, am I having a midlife crisis that’s lasted over 20 years? Or do I just like bikes? I miss the 911 I used to have, as well. There’s no such thing as a “midlife crisis”. There are only people who are jealous they can’t afford what someone else has and who feel the need to shame them, when they really should shame themselves.

    But it wasn’t designed to give the election to mad women like Killary Klinton. Both candidates ran under the same rules. It’s unreasonable to suggest that the rules be changed now that the election is over – unless you’re a liberal, of course.

    The thing is: They both ran in the same election under the same electoral rules. It’s no good to come crying to mama that they could have won if only the rules had been different. They weren’t, and the dems had just as much access (arguably more, actually) to information about election rules as Trump’s team did.

    You’re beating a deat horse, ODon. Both parties ran under the election rules we actually have, not those that you would like to install after the fact.

    In short, you lost. Put on your big girl pants and get over it.

    Yeah, the only things missing were closeups of Clinton and Pelosi with tear smeared mascara (think Tammy Faye Bakker) to completely top it off!
