“More” is certainly measurable but... is it actually more than the number who stay home? It wasn’t for John Kerry in 2004 and it wasn’t for Mitt Romney in 2012, nor for Mondale in 1984. I think we’ve nominated the least offensive bet and decided to run “Not Trump 2020" as basically the de facto strategy. People need Read more

I don’t have a lot of faith that John Kerry 2: The Presidential Boogaloo can take the election in the fall.  But then again, my hopes for that were dashed with Warren dropping out.

If I can buy, sell, and trade millions of dollars (if I had that) in mere seconds on the stock market - and several times in a row to boot - then spending a few tens of thousands of dollars shouldn’t be any issue at all. Hell, I can buy it all on margin, which is kinda like financing. Read more

First, like I said, if that’s true, then there’s nothing lost by getting rid of the (effectively) protectionist laws propping up dealerships. Dealerships will offer value. Read more

Are you out of your MIND? “Complicated”? What’s so damn complicated about it? Get a load. Pay for the car. Title car. Go home with car. It’s STUPID simple. Hell, most of step 1 and step 2 can be done in under 10 mins. Step 3 shouldn’t take more than another 10. It’s a 20 minute transaction... TOPS. Read more

Sounds like we need Charith Cutestory to help us sort this out!

Why?  What on Earth does the size of the purchase have to do with anything?  Once you’ve made the decision to buy, that’s it.  The process shouldn’t be any more complicated than pushing a button.  If you want a cool down period, sure, make the decision then force people to come back the next day to push a button.  Read more

There’s an easy way to test this - get rid of laws protecting dealerships. That’s it. If dealerships provide the best service and lowest price, then the market will show that pretty damn quick. The fact we have laws protecting this stuff suggests dealerships suspect that might not be true.  The only reason we can’t Read more

In high school I once crammed 7 high school guys into a 2 door VW Rabbit. I’m not saying it was remotely COMFORTABLE or SAFE, mind you.... just that we did it. I cruised around with 5 fairly routinely and 6 occasionally.

Jokes on you (and the government)!  That’s almost everything I owe the IRS for this year.  I’ll probably end up handing it back to them to avoid penalties and interest.

Honestly, if I could afford a new Fit and a Ridgeline, I doubt I’d ever need anything else.  Hell, the Ridgeline would just be for the weekends mostly and the occasional mid-week Lowes run, so even it’s kinda optional.

I always find these comments funny as I practically grew up in the backseat of a VW Rabbit.... TWO DOOR!  Well into my teen years too (learned to drive on it).  I would have dreamed for the luxury and room of a Fit.

I hate the Rogue more than any other vehicle in existence. It has such a killer name yet it’s a bland and boring vehicle there aren’t sufficient words to describe it’s degree of bland/boringness. “Meh” doesn’t even come close. I hate they wasted such a great car name on such a stunning piece of mediocrity.

Which might lead to people dying.  Never let the rules lead to people needlessly dying. NEVER EVER EVER EVER.  If you do, you’re culpable in negligent murder.

Dude, please realize you’re just justifying letting people die.  You’re just wrong.

Yes but.... the graph is wrong. Ok, not so much ‘wrong’ as an excellent example of “How to Lie With Statistics” in graphical form.
