Having the OSO forum.. priceless.
If you think the market is bad now, put a Dem in the office, and watch it tank after they jack up the capital gains taxes, as they have been talking about.

>>>It's the long term of this messed up Gov."" <<
I do not want a Dem in office. I refere to the overall incompetancy (sp?) of the Gov. to solve domestic issues.
We... the US/Gov. spendig way to much efforts and resources abroad and catering to low life illigal alliens, and special interests groups not allowing exploring offshore drilling and alt. energy. DEm. or Rep.. as far as I'm concerned the whole Gov. .. the system... dosn't seem to work.
To much politicing, not enough guts and balls to do the right think. .02

Right on! $.02 That's all we're going to have left pretty soon if we don't change course.

Same here. I picked up a single engine Formula 260 SS for general boating and will take the 382 out for an occasional poker run. Payment on the second boat is less than 1/2 tank of gas for the big boat ...

Think about it.

Americans shouldn't complain about gas prices. This
is the end game of years of electing liberal environment
oriented politicians who maneuvered to block drilling
and refinery building. Americans have gotten what
they elected. All the greenies should be loving it.

Now me, I come from an era where strength was
represented at least in part from as much self sufficiency
as possible. That certainly no longer seems like the American
agenda. Quite the opposite with all this globalism and
trying to feel good with countries that are always going
to hate you no matter what you do.

Problem is, I don't see any politicians on the horizon who
offer the slightest chance of hope. Certainly not the pathetic
collection shaping up right now.
