Red_Vespa saidFrankly, I think we should just go and take the Middle Eastern oil fields, and stop being jerked around by a bunch of rabid anti-Western Muslims. They want to destroy us, so let's do them the same favor.
I'm going to assume that you made this comment in jest. You do realize that we are quagmired (sp) in that f*%cking mess in Iraq because of attitudes like that. We don't own the world any more. And we never really did.
I spent $ 23 this morning to fill up the Jetta for the next two weeks @ 1.479/gallon in Atlanta. That's a far cry from the $ 74 after the hurricane last fall. Like Red Vespa, I remember filling up my Super Beetle for $ 3.00 and getting 300 miles. Back in those days, it made a 4,000 mile cross country drive for $ 40 in gas and tolls.
