Those customs thingies are for you furinners and other dope fiends.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Spunky little noob. Guess she'll fit in fine here.

The European snobbery is a bit much, though. World economy mean anything? "Merc" SUV's are made in the US of A and rumour has it that the Bosch windscreen wipers are made in China.

I was planning to respond with a clever Tom Mix anecdote but nobody, including myself, knows who he was. Back in the day when I was working a whirligig concession at the Columbia Worlds Fair, he apparently was the cats pajamas.
