    .

    Well, the ratio just got slightly tipped towards repubs.
    I just bought a Volt for economical reasons, or 50/50 split between economical and technological curiosity.

    Profile of Hybrid Drivers

    The 2007 Scarborogh Research survey, which focused on the hybrid owners within a much broader lifestyle study of 110,000 adults, sheds some light on other consumer behavior and political patterns. According to Scarborough, which has a a joint partnership with The Nielsen Company and Arbitron, Inc., hybrid owners are:
    .
    Twice as likely to claim to go skiing, hiking, or practice yoga than non-hybrid owners.
    .
    They consume more organic food, yogurt, and decaffeinated coffee than the general population.
    .
    The group also indicated above-average tech savvy skills. Within the last month, 78 percent used e-mail. Nearly a third either used their mobile phone for text messaging or taking photographs, while more than a third used a digital-video recorder, satellite TV, or a video game system. Their online activities seem to favor websites that offer news and information, as well as auctions, such as Ebay.

    .
    Politically, 14 percent called themselves Republican, 38 percent Democrat, and 34 percent identify as independent.

    Look at the actions of the Republicans that were responsible for the 25 Billion dollar hit to the United States Of American when the shutdown occurred. They would all claim, "I am an American". Some of them wanted even more damage to happen and to hurt the country more but the majority of them were fianlly allowed to vote and put an end to what they were doing.

    They are Americans but they are not Patriots.

    No Democrats have impeached a Republican President. No Democrats holding national office have accused a Republican President of not being a citizen. No Democrats have used the filibuster as often or as regularly (essentially all Senate bills have to go through cloture) to deny the legitimacy of the election of a Republican President and Republican Senate.

    Even in the case of Bush in 2000, while the Democrats arguably felt they had the election stolen from them, the Democrats did not engage in the number or frequency of filibusters, slowdown/rejection of judicial and ambassador nominations. It has been unprecedented in modern history (i.e. outside of the run up to the Civil War).

    Yes I despised Bush II, thought his policies terrible but, even with the 2000 election, I never called him illegitimate or not the President of the United States (for better or worse). I *accepted* the results of the election even though I was on the losing end. It sure seems like by the rhetoric both nationally and even in this forum that a disturbing number of Republicans (and Republican elected officials) are unwilling to accept the results of an election if they are not on the winning side.

    Sure, there are rank and file Democrats who have gone overboard (e.g. calling Bush like Hitler) but the difference is that much of the rhetoric and accusations are coming from national elected Republicans rather than just the rank and file. Moreover, when and if a Democratic national elected official has gone overboard (accusing a president of treason or some such), the party leaders and other national elected officials have demanded (and gotten) apologies and retractions from the offending official.

Are we in agreement that the former is larger than the latter? Good. That is what the Republicans were looking at had the Democrats expansion of Medicare Part D come to a vote. The victory, and President Bush's signature, were what Republicans felt was the best outcome.
    Boy, that's some twisted logic. So a bill was passed in a Republican controlled house and Senate almost entirely along party lines and signed into law by a Republican president and the reason they did it was because they were afraid that Democrats might pass something worse? How exactly would that work? Even if they got the speaker and senate majority leader to somehow allow a vote on it and then got enough Republicans to cross the isle, you do understand that it takes a 2/3 majority to override a presidential veto, don't you?

    I just happen to hold politicians of both parties in contempt. The Republican party will one day take the country off a cliff. But it's my belief that the Democrats would do the very same, only they would insist on having the gas pedal pressed hard to the floor.
    We are in agreement there -except for the gas pedal part.

    It is my hope to make it to retirement, and enjoy a few years of it, before being confronted with the fallout of political mismanagement of our nation. If my pension survives and social security stays solvent for twenty more years, I'll wind down the clock in comfort. That's my full disclosure.
    Well, that's about the most reasonable, moderate thing I've heard you say. Good on you.
