The [Kerry] campaign also released a "middle class misery index," calculated for Bush's and previous administration, and found a 13-point dip — from 112 to 99 — between 2000 and 2003. A higher score means families are better off.



Key words: "The campaign also released a..."



You aren't very smart, are you?

I remember the time I went atomic apeshiat like this because I couldn't stand KP anymore. Man, that felt good. It's kind of nice to have it out of your system for awhile. Just know that arguing with KP is like pizzin' in a volcano.

You gotta stop, bud. I've said it before, KP is Karl Rove's automated trollbot. It posts MoveOn & CodePink talking points at random into unrelated forums, and pisses off people who previously didn't really care into voting republican. What else but a computer could behave with this rifle-bolt precision level of retardation?

1) I'm not voting for Bush. Way to liberal for me.



2) I didn't call you any names. I said the artical was idiocy. I also said you don't have the vocabulary to debate with me on this issue.



3) Brush up on your reading comprehension

The Bush Campaign's strategy on taxes is to convince America that John Kerry wants to raise them. Right now **** Cheney is pushing an absurd distortion that John Kerry wants to raise taxes by $1.7 trillion dollars.

In fact, John Kerry wants to lower taxes for 98% of Americans while seeking fiscal discipline by repealing the budget-busting tax cuts Bush gave to the richest Americans making over $200,000 a year.

Default Re: How to Buy a Motorcycle Online

I have also found several of these on eBay; Here are some things to look for:



1. The price is too good to be true



2. The information is vague about where the bike is



3. The seller is not in the same location as the bike, and is usually registered in a another country



4. The seller has a history, but it is usually a bunch of small, unrelated stuff (developing a history on cheap items in preparation for the scam, or stealing someoneÂ’s history?; not sure on this one)



5. The seller will not accept escrow payments, etc. and wants a lot up front money.



6. The seller insists on wire transfer (something eBay cautions against – the ebay guidelines on this topic are very good, by the way)



7. The seller frequently offers free shipping anywhere (on a bike? Get real).





In general, real bikes on eBay can be had for good deals at times, but not great deals. A lot of people are looking at them and will bid them up. I have bought two bikes on eBay, and it worked out well, but again, the deals were merely good, not great.

Default Re: Resale

The same complaint can be made against the cruiser set, too. Most of the "customizing" done to these bikes is in the form of bolt-on chromed doo-dads and extra fringe. In the end, you get a bunch of overdone cookie-cutter cruisers waddling down the road looking like Siegfried & Roy's christmas tree. Not exactly value-added in my book.
