one more thing....
Russian women are HOT. Especially the strippers.
Whoever said they arent obviously didint have a very good tour guide. You arent supposed to ask the old lady wearing the baboushka making the cabbage rolls for a lap dance and then complain that she smells like garlic and vodka.
And seems I´m quite spot on with certain people.
Agree on that one... just an hour ago I talkde with some truck Owner operators and as it looks right now maybe the whole 2009 will look quite slow but not dead over here at least and some of us predicted that it will pick up and actually do some good in the businesses that some take a dive.Back on subject. We will all sit and watch the massive deflation for the next year. KBB has started adjusting prices weekly instead of monthly due to the rate of decent on used car values. We will all wait for the drop to bottom out before buying. About the time it hits bottom in a year of so we will then see massive inflation and everyting will be too expensive. 2011-2012 we will see some normalcy in the economy. I am sitting here at my energy trading desk and what I see going on right this moment and whats coming up make me want to lean over and throw up in my garbage can. Homes down another 15-20%, cars 30-40% and boats 40-50%.
Just my 2 rubles
I think Mikeyfin was saying that if are top boat builders like Cig sold world wide are economy would be better. I don't think thats going to help much at this point except for a few hundred people.
That´s not my intention but to WAKE UP some Americans.
OK I may sound harsh, some might even think if I happen to admit Germans have some good qualities and´haven´t been treated right Make me a Nazi ?
You Might look up the Bombings of Dresden... or the fact that there´s undetonated Bombs found in Germany every week even nowadays, on Civilian sites.
Think the German people or any for the matter have deserved it.
Americans can only relate with something like that remotely with the Oklahoma Bombing and 911.
If you think I´m a Nazi patronizer I think you should´ve known what kinda treatment Hitler got over here even thou he let us buy their guns and be their ally ( so a history lesson again)
You can call A Finn a Cold Willed patriot but a Nazi and a German patronizer never.
We patronize even the Swedish Monarchy more and you might find out why if you know history.
Come to think of it my family is rich in some peoples eyes but usually I see my dad at home walking with my old clothes that I´ve left 20yrs ago while leaving home.Although there is a problem in American culture where people feel like they need to have things they cant afford just because some moron celebrity on Cribs has it.
In Canada, if you cant afford it, you dont have it. Or should I say CANT have it because of our banks lending policies.
My family is pretty wealthy but we drive our trucks for 10-15 years. We dont wear gold watches and stuff. We dont let our women go buy ridiculous clothes, put additions on the house, finance things, we look for good deals on steaks and buy the 2 liter pepsi because it is cheaper, etc, etc ,etc.
THe funny thing is, and I was talking to my girlfriend about this the other day, most people who arent rich think multi millionaires live these crazy lavish lifestyles. Well, I can tell you from my fathers way of life, not all people with money live like that. Most are quite the opposite. My dad has his car collection but he refuses to buy jeans anywhere but walmart, wont spend money on a decent steak and complains about a breafast costing more than 6 bucks (canadian).
The best rich to be isnt possesion rich it is cash rich.
I don´t see him rich at all..he´s usually it seems short on cash constantly or at least complains about it and drives and old beaters despite all the posessions.
Henry Ford was quite shall we say not a big spender...
Rockefellers had worn out sheets cut out and the good parts sewn together...
That from times when USA was truly No.1 and yes those were prolly ( probably to the illiterate) great times for the normal citizen.

You guys have been so busy today bashing each other that I don't even think I will bother to catch up today.
IMO Cigarettes are still way overpriced. If they take a 50% price cut inthe used market, then they will be about right.
Oil plays a big part in politics, at least for USA in their foreign policy it seems.
So keen to fight for it oneway or another.
A History lesson once again.
Regarding antisemitism, fact is jews were persecuted allover in the 30´s and at least as much in Russia got holocausted but not as systematically and yes it not much talked about as they were on the winning team.
USA also was hostile in the 30´s against them, Remember the S.S. St Louis Or one Henry Fords book called the International Jew ?
Sad but true.
