RE: Kerry's Speech

LOL, I wish.

The closest I got to one was owned by the business partner of my friend's husband (still with me?). He was the first person we knew who actually bought one and his friends called him (or it?) Apollo due to the futuristic look of the thing. You have to appreciate that no other car on the road looked like it or performed like it. It was unique. Like I said in another thread, you either loved them or hated them and the people who hated them couldn't afford them! (nor could most of the people who loved them).

BTW, the insurance premium on them was frightening. Be interesting to know how many were sold and how many have survived.

RE: Kerry's Speech

About 5000 sold worldwide and probably less than 40% survived...due to crashes, rust (in Britian), and THEFT (big reason why insurance premiums were soooooo high!!). About 2300 of the 5000 were RHD models for the UK.

Most people consider the Sierra Cosworth a UK car.

LMFAO!!

Well...well... a little role-play-sarcasm. What do you think? He went a little far.....?? I believe he's been banned.

I was telling the truth. The picture/last name was wrong.... The address/phone number was old (I used the last name as an alias opening up a telephone acct - my current phone number is under yet another alias)

You want the truth?? You can't handle the truth!!

OK, you were warned, now you pay the price. Everyone, here is a picture of tpc!

I bet he used that picture to marry his wife in an arranged marriage at his Kibbutz.

Fords...

Fords are much better everywhere in the world except in their home country. But they now have some decent ones (Crown Vic, Mustang, Lincoln LS/JagS, Thunderbird) here these days.

I hope we never surrender the west bank (you know what I think about surrendering the Golan Heights, and as far as Gaza, I don't give a rat's ass) that would be a disaster for our economy and security!

Further, I hope the exiled are never allowed to return, the shift in the demographics would kill the ONLY democracy in that region of the world...

I don't doubt that your opinion is quite the opposite though...
Actually suprisingly not opposite...

Well...I have two beliefs on the subject...

*Give the Palestinians a homeland PROVIDED that the security of Israel is protected (hence barrier)
*Allow Israel to be shared and declared as the 'State of Israel & Palestine' and allow free life for both the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let the Palestinians help make Israel a better country than it is.

As it stands, Israel loses a lot of business by the surrounding boycotting Arab countries. Either approach will bring back Israel back into the core of the Middle East as an ally, rather than an enemy.

I can understand why you would NOT want the Palestinians to return under a democratic Israel. Because their population WILL overwhelm that of the Jewish Israelis, and before you know it "Israel" will democratically vote itself into a moderate Arab state.

If you were employed as a tech support for some obscure computer company, you'd be on crack too, believe me!
Actually, it was an offsourced to a company that does the corporate tech support for a company called 'Gateway'

As for the Richardson people...I don't know them. They were Palestinians I believe. My background is from a country that was the first one to make peace with Israel and it is it's demographically closest ally.

But 8088s are definately a threat. That's the newest technology to reach the West Bank since the flushable toilet.
