No I haven't. I am actually looking into getting the TT after the manufacturer's warrantee runs out. It's tough to resell and get even a fraction of of your money back with aftermarket mods. I fear it might also make resale more difficult. If I don't have the bucks for the TT (not sure if I'll still be working in 3 years) then I may just get a bolt on turbocharger when the car is 4 years old...

Sent you a PM, BTW.....

The Trade Deficit is at another record year [5 in a row] $6Trillion, the Budget Deficit is $4Trillion for the Administration. China now OWNS $1.2Trillion worth of US Treasury Notes [we pay them $90Million just in interest a year]. 9.5 million workers OFF the tax roles.
Just trying to deflect attention from the fact that you are a total fraud! Sounds familiar.

All I did was to use the advanced search function and put in your name and for the "keyword" I used " sovereignty." It hasn't been used in many other contexts so it was easy to filter through the first page of posts and pick out 4 in rapid succession. Takes about 2 minutes (roughly the same amount of time it takes you google this catch phrase and cut and paste it into your posts.)

But now that I think about it I kind of like this term " sovereignty." It has a nice intellectual ring to it. Instead of saying "United States" we can henceforth refer to it as "the sovereign nation of the United States" and readers will be more impressed with our mastery of the English language.

Notice, too, how it nicely glosses over what else may be bad about a country. E.g., it can honestly be said that the Sudan, which is otherwise run by fanatical, genocidal arabs, is a " sovereign" nation. The term has this nice disinfectant quality and once we have established this fact we need not concern ourselves with its human rights violations. (Sounds like Iraq to me except that the Sudan doesn't represent a significant threat to our interests which is probably why the U.N. did not intervene in the genocide there).

You sir, are an absolute treasure trove of information and advice. Wow, and you sorta know what the word sovereign means! Golly, I hate to point out an oversight made by someone so learned as yourself, but the term sovereign has no bearing on the quality of leadership therein. Otherwise, we Merkins couldn't quite make that claim, now could we? I hope your eminence will accept my humble gift with typical magnanimity.

Mine's still down at Juvie.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

You have to admit that the numbers on the backdrop make the colors in your eyes look better, whatever that color happens to be.

Which was precisely my point with regards to Iraq. The mere fact that is was "sovereign" nation had no bearing on the fact that it was run my a madman who [insert your own cliche here like "gassed his own people" etc.]. Therefore complaining that we attacked a "sovereign" nation has no bearing on whether it was justified or not.

So I see that you get my point after all.

Or do you?

The point is and was that your entire post was a non sequitur, wrapped in solipsistic sequines. Nice try though, thanks for playing.
