He's as likely to win a 2nd term as the GOP is to divorce itself from the NRA.

It's hard for me to blame Delta for not entertaining the possibility of an immediate punitive response from the govt over the ending of a nearly unused discount program with an interest group.

Re: Indictment Watch

Do you think they forget? Or do they simply grow tired of discussing with a side that just looks for reasons not to listen. The debate over gun control laws in the US has persisted for decades.

Re: Official BMW M2 thread

I think the 230i should be entered into the discussion if a cheaper daily is the goal. The 230i has ~250 hp, ~3150 lbs, better weight distribution, and saves more money in gas and initial costs.

That list can't be taken seriously without an M3/M4 on it.

Re: Indictment Watch

Extreme views are a canard. It's easy to separate the wheat from the chaff. The problem is that everything is chaff to one side, as evidenced by their perpetual do-nothing approach to the problem.
