    I wonder what it would cost to machine a 32 footer out of a solid block of aluminum?

    New prices are up and used prices are down, doesn't make sense. Usually higher new prices raise the price on used.

    Hopefully things start changing after this war business is over and after Bush gets out of office.

    The problem is not Bush...

    ...and it's not the war. The war will be won within months. Any doubts?

    And Bush?

    Sure he has an IQ of just 91.

    But would Al Gore (he got 1 mio votes more than Bush) have done better? No...or...not much.

    The problem is oil (Chaos in Venezuela) and more so: ...DEBT.

    Everybody is up to their neck in debt.

    Who wants to spend high $$$s on a "toy"

    Just ask your wife...

    Sorry ,
    No wife here !!
    And yes I'm glad that Gore isn't in office , that would have been worse than what we have now.
    Unfortunatley I'm not educated enough in politics to have an intelligent arguement about it. I'm just going off of what I see and here about Bush and I think his only concerns are finishing what is father should have and keeping him and his "old rich business man" club members rich.
    Don't even get me going on "why " the economy is down. I know here in the Motor city things are down because the buzzword of big corporations is "outsourcing" Why pay someone skilled to do the job here which creates jobs and revenue which will in turn go back into the economy when you can outsource it to India or wherever to someone that doesn't have a clue how to do the job or does a poor job for a third of the price. Well the more people out of work means less people to buy the products these companies manufacture so knowone is putting money back into the economy.
    The effin bean counters just don't have a clue. Sure they are saving money for thier stockholders (at least that is what it appears like) when in reality they are hurting the companies.

    Wow ,
    Sorry about that , I will step off the soapbox now

    No wife here neither!

    What you describe are the highly praised "productivity gains" of business...

    V-e-r-y good for the economy ...they say on bubblevision.

    Jobless numbers are still very low. Everything is propped up by booming real-estate.

    But the economy seems to be "slow" or even "faltering"

    For fun read this:

    The Economist ( is the only magazine Bill Gates reads. Very good. And this article is good.

    Enough of this, I'm looking forward to summer!
