    Ever watch C-Span? It's been on several times this past week.

    Stay with the times dude.

    "Fox News" is nothing but lies straight from the liars telling the lies over
    there in the White House.

    I think it would be great to have a 600 mile range on a gas tank. I
    have been driving a Taurus for the last 3 years and the range for city
    driving is only 200 miles. The Taurus is a good car but, the most annoying
    thing about it is that I need to watch the "trick" gas guage so closely.
    Full is about a quarter inch past F. Empty, is when the needle is around
    the quarter mark. The needle on half means there are about 3 gallons left.
    People have asked me if I am sure about this and I am because even though I
    have never run out, I have seen the unmistakeable signs of being close to
    running out including sputters and the like.
    The issue with being able to calculate a 600 mile range though would be
    that it would need to rely on accurate MPG figures which are not always the
    case. MPGs vary based on terrain, weather and other factors.

    So you actually listen to yourself?

    Maybe if you'd pay more attention to what is going on in this country and
    get off that Faux News, you'd learn a thing or two.

    Again, you need to learn the facts. Bush NEVER won a federal election. Only
    in the recounts that favored bush did he win. And those were so mucked up
    just to get those figures. Not to mention the illegal purge of legally
    registered voters. And yes, the machines were faulty. Still are. If they
    were so accurate, then why is it the republikan party refuses to allow a
    paper trail added to all of the machines used?

    Sure, just tell me where the original post came from and where and when this
    became cross posted?????????

    I once had a fuel gage go out in my old Plymouth (not so) Reliant. I never
    new how much gas I had but I always kept track of the mileage. I know the
    way I drive a vehicle and I knew I could go so far before needing to fill
    up. This went on for almost two years, spring, summer, autumn and winter, WI
    to CA. Different conditions do mean different MPG but it can be compensated
    for if one knows his vehicle.

    I also think the original poster may have meant that a 600 MPG Rating would
    have been under certain conditions. Look at any ad in a magazine where they
    claim such and such MPG. There is always the disclaimer about conditions and
    how you drive.

    You're asking for 600 miles city driving? So you want a 33 gallon tank?
    I don't think you would be happy with that, and when full, your milage
    would drop dut to the weight.

    .... and like I said you think that the lunar landing was faked and that
    Bush prayed Katrina into being and hitting New Orleans. Again - as long
    as we have people like you speaking publicly on behalf of the libs, the
    Democrat pary has an uphill battle. All we conservatives ask is that
    you keep up the good work.

    So I was right. You won't answer specific questions because the truth
    isn't what you want to hear, nor is it in you.

    Specifically you will not address if SH had WMDs? How were thousands of
    Kurds killed in Iraq? How many times did SH invade Kuwait? What did
    Bill Clinton say about SH and what we should do about him? Was the UN
    resoution unanymous? Did SH support terrorism by offering families of
    suicide bombers rewards? Did SH support Al Quida?

    Actuall, you were wrong again.
    I'll answer your questions. You may not like hearing the truth, but read on.
    Absolutely not. At least not after he was forced to get rid of them after
    daddy bush attacked in '91. Haven't you been listening to the truth? Hans
    Blix said no before the war in started in '03 and all of the intelligence
    reports since have said he did not have them. Haven't heard of the "Downing
    Street Memo's" either have you. Proof your boy cooked the books to gain
    support for his illegal oil grab.
    With WMD supplied to him by Reagan/Bush/Rummsfeld. Again, those were no
    longer in his possession in '03.
    Once. And that was with the permission of the first bush administration.
    He said the UN resolutions were working during his time in office and Saddam
    wasn't threatening anybody except the British and US warplanes flying over
    his soverign country on a daily basis.
    It was unanymous that bush NOT attack Iraq.
    I can't prove otherwise and neither can you. It has been reported to be so,
    but then we were also told he had WMD which you know was proven fasle.

    Did SH support Al Quida?

    No. Saddam was and possibly still is a secular Muslim. Al Quaida is run by
    the person who trully attacked this country four years ago, Osama been
    Forgotten. Osama was not in cahoots with Sadam. In fact he hated Sadam
    because of his secular views. To Osama, Sadam was an infedel for not
    following Islam like Osama and his fundamentalists want.

    I really don't care if the lunar landing was faked.

    I don't think bush or any religious fanatic could pray any hurricane into
    existence, much less where it's going to hit.

    I only believe in facts. Not the idiotic ideas you have of us liberals.

    Bill, are you a religious man? Are you a so-called christian?

    If so, just how in the hell do you think you're going to get into heaven by
    badmouthing liberals? Remember, jesus was the biggest liberal of them all.
    Don, Sep 11, 2005
  14. Please not this tripe. You're probably one of those who claim Joseph and
    Mary were homeless too when Jesus was born.

    I love hearing the truth.
    Per the UN, he was required to account for the weapons that were on the
    books, and he never did.
    But there were more WMD's than that.
    Like I say - keep up the lunacy. Only makes us look good.
    No - actually WJC said that Sadam needed to be removed from power.
    Where have *you* been?
    He said, making it up as he wnet along.
    Yes - provable. Non-sequitur.

    Re: WMD's - as I said, he was required by the UN to account for them and
    couldn't. But you will deny that I'm sure, or thow in another non-sequitur.
    Yes - provided training facilities and assylum. "Enemy of my enemy..."
    kind of thing.

    You know nothing of true Christianity if you think not badmouthing
    liberals will get you into heaven. Sorry - but that's not the criteria.

    only been hanging out in automotive-related newsgroups, huh? if you
    consider his postings to be frothy, you have been extremely sheltered.

    i won't speak to the issue of freedom of expression, but in regard to
    virtually everything else -- the war in iraq, the economy, immigration,
    irresponsible tax cuts and while ballooning the deficit, the pathetic
    response to hurricane katrina, this administration is nothing short of
    criminal. as the saying goes, "if you're not outraged, you're not paying
    attention." i would consider it frivolous to take anybody by the hand and
    lead them to the mountains of evidence regarding this administration's
    blunders, lies and malfeasance. anybody who doesn't realize what's
    happening is either wilfully blind or woefully stupid.

    what was the question? i was simply responding to your apparent lack of
    they can express themselves all they like; but it's been my experience that
    rabid bush-backers are your typical "crash beer can on forehead, thump your
    chest, kill em all and let my non-existent god sort it out" kinda guys.
    they wear buffalo-check flannel sweaters, bad haircuts and have a vocabulary
    somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 words. i consider it to be good form to
    let them know that any bullying behavior on their part will be met with the
    reduction of their head to a pulpy and bloody mass. they understand that.
    other than that, they can express away.

    Typcial libs. You want to
    i'd do the same. i don't help the walking dead.

    By your replies, you wouldn't know it if it jumped up and bit you in your
    Yes, yes. Just as bush said. Tell me, how was Sadam supposed to prove he
    didn't have what he didn't have? That is like saying, show me you have
    something in your hand when you have nothing in your hand. It's all a play
    on words to make Sadam look guilty to the imbeciles that follow bush's line
    of thinking.
    Where. Hiding in his underwear? Sadam had none. End of story.
    I guess you're gonna try telling me Sadam invaded Kuwait 5000 times in the
    last 100 years? You are insane.
    Clinton never said that.
    Go back and check your history. Don't you remember you fools putting down
    the French because they voted against bush's war? So did the Germans, the
    Russians and the Chineese. All members of the UN Security Council. Jeez. And
    I thought you knew some facts.
    Like I said. It's not provable.
    As I said above, how was he supposed to prove the glass was empty when there
    was nothing inside to show?
    Bullshit. There were never any Al Quaida in Iraq before bush got his war
    hardon and made a mess of everything getting 1896 American service men and
    women killed because he lied. Even that Zarqauwi (spelling?) dude said that
    he has just become a follower of Al Quaida, and that was after the war
    started. Didn't Fox News tell you that? I guess not. They won't tell you the
    truth if it makes their imbecile look bad.
