Straight Talk from a Straight Shooter

Here's President Bush yesterday in Greece, New York:

"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda."

The particular bit of propaganda he was catapulting there was his plan for Social Security reform. Don't get me started on fretting about the potential problems in the Social Security program 75 years from now as we spend money like a drunken sailor right now, including hundreds of billions of dollars and hundreds of soldiers' lives keeping troops on the ground in Iraq and Kuwait to feed our oil habit.

Well, I typed up a comment and then I think I click the wrong button which made it disappear? Who knows? Anyhow thanks for the bike info. Go over to Midwest Mountaineering, they rent space now to The Hub Bike shop. They have a few commuter bikes which look cool, very spendy at $800+. Closed hub, 8 speed I think.
