It seems to me there are 3 types of earners.....
1.) Those that are employed by a company and are currently fairly secure
2.) Those that are "self" employed and are struggling due to the economy, and,
3.) Those that are retired, or independantly wealthy....

at any rate, most people ARE affected by this economy brought on by our rich politicians and their poor decisions........ JMHO, of course, I could be wrong....

Seems to me that there are 10 types of people; those who understand binary and those who don't.

The politicos get my vote. I don't mind so much that they are over paid. Just wish they would stay out of the way.

Quick name 10 laws in the last 20 years that we really needed and was not them trying to fix something they already fixed.

Without going too far down this path and getting in trouble. Most cruisers want to go out and enjoy their life without anyone getting in their way. They want to take care of themselves and help out when they can. Most of us understand the necessary evil of government to prevent anarchy and provide basic services. We all also have a basic view of what's right and wrong which likely mirrors most of the ten commandments.

That makes us conservatives.


I'll bite my tongue on the rest of what I wanted to say.
