Amen! Hallelujah! (In the spirit of rright-wing conspiracy theorist hate stirrer making lots of money attitude.) I'm with you. Couldn't plant petunias with a diagram because he'd flip flop about his own color placement.
Nahhhh, don't have time to be jealous of him or anyone else. I just don't understand fear and hate mongering, of which I believe he is a strong instigator. And to be fair, I think they are on both sides of the isle, not just conservatives. Fear and hate never educated the public with facts to help them make intelligent decisions. That's all I'm really getting at.
Sorry I got caught up in Texas Tailgaters a weekly pregame show. Its funny I don't see conservatives constantly calling liberals haters! We all know they do hate but pointing it out seems juvenile, I don't think Beck hates Obama personally I think he hates his policies! People like Janeen Garafolo just hate there is no other way to put it! Anyway just wanted to say that. Football about to come on UT vs UTEP should be a route, but you never know!
Well Sounds like he got in trouble with GM. GM is after the electric and hybrid market. They very well can't have a paid spokesperson badmouthing their product or future products. Sounds like business to me.
I don't know your age, and this may be before your time, but back in the seventies OPEC declared an oil embargo. Nearly every gas station in the U.S. started limiting purchases to ten gallons. Some would only sell to car plates with even numbers on even days and odd numbers on odd days. This is right when the Japanese auto got a foothold here. Until then they were just a curiosity.
In my opinion Detroit never really recovered from that.
That didn't help either and I still haven't heard anything solid about why it happened. A bunch of opinions from OPEC setting limits to the damage to offshore oil platforms during the hurricanes, but for every opinion there was someone saying "no, that wasn't it."
Texan. I used to live there (in Houston). I worked at a gas station in my teens. I still have vivid memories of a "gas war" where we actually got down to a quarter a gallon for gas. Twenty-five cents a gallon!!!
Looking back and comparing to today it's like a "Twilight Zone" episode.
There are a lot of cars out there that are made of plastic, yet still have some pretty decent 1/4 mile and 0~60 figures. There are even some electrics out there that leave almost every last one of them in the dust.
Obama approved a loan to Brazil’s quasi-public national oil company, Petrobras, which will use the money for the exploration and drilling of 270 sites in the Gulf of Mexico and over 200 more off the coast of Brazil itself. For those not knowing much about Petrobras, here are a few interesting facts: Petrobras’ largest individual shareholder, by far, is none other than leftist billionaire George Soros, whose hedge fund, by some remarkable coincidence, increased its holdings in Petrobras just prior to Obama’s loan announcement.

I agree. But some insist. You see, these days, if you say there is a chance that racism exists you are considered a racist. If you are black and have ever disagreed with what a white person has done and speak out...you are racist.
Obama has never called anyone who has criticized him a racist. Some have, and I disagree with that. 99% of Obama's critics are probably not racist.
I'll just grab some popcorn now
And to get back to the topic, does Beck drive a hybrid and did he originally criticize them?
Now that I'm back maybe this thread will come back to life! Obama is a racist, 99% of those that do not agree with him are not racist! Sad that liberals categorize the wrong people as racist, just sad!
You can certainly be on this site I was just wondering why Obama's failings effect you so. You know there is no President of the World don't you? But maybe Canada has a position for him he will be needing a job in about 3 years!
My point of view is we do not need alternative fuels! there is no Global Warming just as there was no global cooling, the scare from the 70's. If the Government wants to push this myth they are more than welcome to but I will not buy into it, this is just my opinion.
First, I want the agree with A Texan, that global warming is a farce. The planet's climate fluctuates. It just does. Secondly, I forget who said it, but, Detroit did "catch up" to Japanese fuel economy. I used to sell Chevy vehicles and although I was not a fan of them, at first, they did get very good fuel mileage. If I remember correctly, the base model Cobalt got better mileage than the base model Civic. It was also much cheaper and had comparable equipment. The same goes for Toyota. A hybrid Tahoe had the same (city) economy rating as a Corolla(sp). If you compare websites or window stickers, you will see that they never really fall behind. I believe the main reason for this thinking is that American car companies are known for making trucks, and performance cars. When you think of Dodge, you think of a truck or a Viper. Most people don't think of a Neon. Also, I don't believe Beck changed his mind about hybrids. If you were being paid by a company, chances are you wouldn't bad-mouth their product either. Just my four cents. (Two is never enough.)
