But ya gotta remember that a continuing occupation of a Middle Eastern oil producing country contributes to the price of oil...

NO, it doesn't or at least it shouldn't. The price of a barrel of oil is artificially high and I look forward to the next oil crash and the ruin of many of these scumbags. We need something like in '86... Us being in Iraq should mean oil prices from there would be CHEAPER, but... someone (wonder WHO) isn't letting that happen. Maybe they need to pay us reparations for freeing them.

I wouldn't quite say it's artifically high.  Ignoring the fact that OPEC has us by the short hairs and refuses to raise production there is a huge issue that is hurting us all.  The fact that Oil is priced in USD.  Notice that lately the dollar has taken a nose dive.  The weaker the dollar gets, the higher the price of oil will go.

Heaven help us if OPEC gets their way and oil gets priced in EUROS.  Nothing against the EURO as it's a strong currency, however here in the US gas prices would rocket.  Suddenly the $70 to fill your tank would become $100+

I fear reenacting will suffer this summer.  More and more folks are saying gas prices are keeping them from making events more that a couple hours from home.  Let's face it.  It's hard to haul a tent and gear in a hatchback that gets 50mpg.   0|

Fred Thompson '08!  ;-(  yea, that will work.

Obama is a soothe talking communist.  He is no different than Hillery, he just lacks the experience to be as evil as her. 

He will try to end our hobby through "common sense" gun legislation or other means.

Again  this election we are faced with a idiot and the anti-christ....democracy is so wonderful sometimes.  I'll take the idiot (again).

Actually there is a difference between Hillary and Obama. Whereas Obama would sit down with Ahmadinejad and talk to him over the issues while they would launch a nuclear strike against Isreal, Hillary said we would be ready to obliterate them if they did.

Now on to the discussion of the candidates according to what they would do.

Obama would have laws (at least try to) controlling guns along the lines of Germany during the 3rd Reich but not to the point of banning them. Would raise the federal tax on salaries to spread the wealth out to everyone. He didn't help his image with the statement basically saying small town Americans are bible carrying, gun toting biggots. During the ABC debate he couldn't answer the questions on his policies at all. Completely stumbled then whined about how tough ABC was on him. Christ, look how hard the other debates were against Hillary. He also supports giving licenses to illegal immigrants and would allow them to all stay here in the US. Now, how is that fair to all those who came here who did it legally?

Hillary and the evil one both support universal healthcare. However I think Hillary would force everyone to join while he would make it for a certain amount. however, have you been to a hospital in a country with universal healthcare? I have in Romania and I will not support that here in the US. IT SUCKS!!!!!! Had to bribe a doctor with $500 to get seen since they made you go on a waiting list.

McCain is also not a true Republican. However, he is looking very closely for a semi-conservative (at least I hope) VP candidate and the conservatives will keep him in check to a stronger degree than the communists in the Democratic Party would with their candidate.

Earlier it was mentioned that the US going to the left a little was good. How? The US stands for free-market capitalism, work hard to have a secure future while those of socialism/communism made everyone equal in all aspects. People are not all equal actually. A pig farmer should make the same amount as a medical doctor? I wouldn't want to go to my doctor then since he/she would not care hardly anymore or not do a great job of diagnosing me. Look at Western Europe itself when it went to the left. High unemployment in France besides alot of the countries have elected a more conservative form of government. The socialists allowed a lot of radical followers of Islam into their respective countries and now unable to control them. Like the French politicias said, "The muslims have no respect for French culture. They only care about their own and to spread their beliefs."

Because my wife works for one of those "Evil Hedge funds" that everyone is blaming for the economy. They pay here a stipend to live near work and that pays for 97% of the rent. Only pay $600 to live in mid-town Manhattan which is dirt cheap. However, we are looking at houses outside of the city and I am looking at property in WV and PA as well.

The Democrats in NY have screwed this state up badly and the unions think it is still the early 20th century in their thinking, we are the gods of the working class mentality doesn't help much either. Don't get me wrong, my dad was UMWA as well as grandfathers and I am a member of the UFT (AFL-CIO). But jesus, doorman at buildings need a union as well as the grocery store employee's? Give me a break.

Everyone needs representation sometimes... Hell, I'm a driver and we don't have it and the owner of the company I work for, believes the employees are his personal property... of course, the Labor Board coming in and yanking his leash recently brought him up short. It just hasn't occurred to Ebeneezer that they have labor board in other areas >:( Oh well, I told him before, "Ya gotta pay people right!" What do I know?

And no, I don't think unions are the end-all, be all of life. Most ARE a bit much, but in some cases (many) the company thinks it's above the law.

Rob, not to be nosy, but is that $600 a month AFTER they pay 97%......

You need to get out of that communist place regardless.   I think things are going to get a bit tight in the wallet real soon no matter who becomes president.  Lower rent can't hurt.  While Hillery / Obama will only try to tax us out of recension.

I used to be totally anti-union, but even as management all my life, I can say that there are some places that still need them and others that should get them by the way the management treats the workers.  I see poor treatment of workers becoming a problem again in this day and age.

I used to WAY against them, but you're right -- companies are treating workers like shite again and they feel it's okay. "Everything for the company" seems to be the word of the day -- I am usually regarded as a "non-team player" when I say "Family first!" >:( Like the workers are their serfs. My boss is becoming that way -- you should see the idiotic crap they say when someone catches them doing something wrong. hell, they just got popped in NH by the labor board and he still hasn't learned. One of the reasons I got out of management. Oh well, they'll learn... hope it's not before the country collapses.

Yeah.  I can't understand how management can be so heavily reliant on the young "whiz kids" fresh out of college, with ZIP for practical experience in positions of responsibility.  I'm pretty sure they ought to be really glad that DUELLING isn't an accepted practice these days.  Some of their policies & decisions are downright OFFENSIVE to the workforce.

Oh yeah. Were it, I'd have had at the boss w/ swords (numerous bosses over the years, actually). I wonder if we could bring it back :P Sure would do wonders for manners in this country!!! (^)
