Let me see if I understand your position correctly. You call names of
people unwilling to pay 5 times more for an item they can by from Hobby City
because they are cheap? Is that correct? How much extra do you send to the
governement in taxes every year? How much extra do you donate to ANY
charity every year - I bet it is in the cents column.
Let me suggest a better way to look at it for you. If you were able to make
your money go 2 to 4 times further, wouldn't you like that? Wouldn't it be
a good thing to be able to do what you want AND what you need? Inexpensive
stuff helps less financially endowed folks get more stuff just like you rich
folks have. I guess that is why you are calling folks names over their
attempts to save money.

"Ed Cregger" remarked:
Who do you think is funding the US deficit? The Chinese have been
loaning money to the US and the balance keeps going up. Do you really
think our politicians would have the balls to impose a tariff on
Chinese products coming into our country?
Circumstances are rapidly changing. Even today events are forcing a major
change in future politics.
There is a need for legislation preventing the borrowing of money for normal
governmental operations. Perhaps a constitutional amendment.
It is also time to limit the scope and reach of presidential executive
orders and a restoration of our rights to pre Bush status.
No more declaring war without Congress' approval.
No more demanding that social security pay for itself. Diverting tax
revenues in the general fund to fulfil the obligations to its citizens is
preferrable to funding illegal wars that only benefit the military
It is time we insisted, as citizens, that these things occur. It is time to
return to teaching the benefits of our US Constitution and The Bill of
Rights, regardless of the howls of despair by the extremists on both sides
of the political spectrum. It is also time to do away with the present
Federal Reserve System and return to backing our currency with items of
intrinsic value, not promises.
I'm an old fart, as you can probably tell by my rantings. Todays kids have
been brainwashed into thinking that the US Constitution is an outdated
useless piece of writing that is laughable and that should be dismissed as
irrelevant. I feel so very sorry for them.
