    It is thinking like NZ's that will have us all speaking Chinese someday.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I also yearn for the days without regulations. You know: leaded gas, smog alerts, rivers on fire- all that good stuff.

    Cars will cost less once our Great Leader and his assistants get rid of burdensome gubbmint interference with business. Manufacturers no longer will have to install unnecessary and costly stuff like lap and shoulder belts, air bags, anti-lock brakes, stability control and all that other bureaucratic nonsense that makes America ungreat.
    Keep your stinkin' government hands off my Medicare.

    We'll have those features. You'll have to pony-up more cash for the deluxe package of the car. Those are luxury items.

    At some point, I'm going to upgrade our kitchen appliances. I hope Joe's wishes come though so I can buy a fridge that is powered by a 12-cylinder CAT diesel. I'm going to bypass the exhaust system and "roll coal" with my fridge.

    Ha!! Good one Shawn.

    I'm not referring to appliances in my statement. We supply products to the home building industry. Whole different ball game when it comes to Energy Star.

    Boy, the companies that are burdened by these onerous safety rules must be hurting so bad, I imagine their profits are way down, as would be their stocks. Lets see, gee, not so bad, in fact many are at record highs. Humm

    Sure, but just like with the ACA it isn't about the economy at large. The nation should bend its will to specifically help out Joe and his family. All other considerations are moot.

    Why don't you care about me and my family Shawn? It makes me sad.

    Why don't you care about anybody else's family?
