    We'll be out of Afghanistan in 3 years... uh-huh

    Is anyone buying this?

    Remember when the long-legged Mack Daddy promised if he became president the war would be over?

    "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank. "

    - Barack Obama, October 27, 2007


    Will the imbeciles out there ever get it?

    It doesn't matter whether it's a Chimp (GOP) or a Mack Daddy (Democrat). Both are two sides of the same corporatist coin - and wholly owned spokespuppets for the Machine; the big business-military-corporate-payola shyster Machine that milks this country like a sore-teated old cow.

    Nothing will ever change until there is a revolution - the real thing - in this country.

    Have we ever left a country that we were fighting in? We've got over 50,000 troops spread around the world in places that we should have left years ago!

    Wasn't that what he said about Iraq?

    And didn't he say he wanted to send more troops to Afghanistan?

    Ah yes--- the Mustang--- I was going to keep it till I found an EDGE that I wanted-- At least an '08 or newer.
    Well, a dealer about 40 miles from my home had an '08 Limited with 16,000 miles on the clock--- an "Executive Lease" from Ford! He had it hanging around for a couple of months and had it priced really right.
    I asked the internet mgr. what he'd take--out the door--tax title and plates. It was a little too high--- so I was joking around and told him to go look at my Mustang-- that white one that everone was eyeballing.
    They came back with a helluva deal--- the trade in was more than I paid for it-- so, I played a little more and said he was now getting close, but it would take another 1500 bucks off to do the deal.
    He told me to wait a minute--- came back 10 minutes later and said--It's a deal---
    I made a fast 3 grand on that Mustang and am now the proud owner of an '08 Edge Ltd. with 20" wheels and sport suspension.
    This new 3.5 engine hauls ass--- and I now have a vehicle that more fits my body!

    Excellent!

    And yes, that 3.5 is a nice little engine. I just got a Taurus SHO, which has the same mill/with twin turbos and 360 hp. It moves out!

    And we're still in Iraq, too - with no end in sight.

    Obama/Sotero is just exactly what the Chimp was: a front man/shill for the corporate state and its enforcement arm, the military.

    Yes. We're being kicked out. We won't be stupid enough to stay after that. At least I hope not!

    The Mustang was an '04 40th anniversary model. White with leather and all the bells & whistles thay had.
    My problem was I had to wear the thing. Getting in & out was a major operation.
