Greetings Ted Cline:
I'm with you on that one. Melanie and I have been searching
around for a small SUV for about a year nad have been giving the car salesman a an earful
on the inequity of treating some customers one way and other another. I seems like discrimination.
It's hard to imagine how they get away with it in today's world.
I went to college AND was in the USAF, I do not qualify for either rebate because I'm
not currently involved in either. I can see offering deals to vetrerans, but college
kids??? Like you point out, my taxes are largely subsidizing their college tuition already,
why should I be expected to pay more for my car in order to give a break to someone
Although I'm not sure what net effect it will have, I'm glad to see the
spirit of the 1773 Boston Tea Party is building momentum. Believe it or not, there was
a group of Americans who sided with the King and did not want to separate from the overarching
government. Today, there is an equivalent group who, almost entirely out of ignorance
of what the original Tea Party was all about, who want to demonize the Tea Party people.
The media likes to try to portray them as a violent group when everywhere they go it
is peaceful and the grounds are litter-free. Compare that to the mobs at the recent
Wisconsin state house and those who gather in Washington for their-side events... the
areas look like a tornado blew through and emptied all the dumpsters everywhere.
I did a search for comparative photos. I don't know who owns the rights to them,
so I'll link them from where I found them.
Here is the Mall in D.C. after the
August 2010 rally for the Tea Party:
Here is the 2008 inauguration aftermath:
Notice any difference? You can find many similar instances. So, did you see these
pics in the media?
