My Dad told me he wasn't going to buy me a car when I was in High School.
I thanked him for his wisdom when I realized what he did for me at that time.
I worked since I was 10 years old at a horse stable. From morning until night - anything and everything I could do to make money because I didn't want my parents to have to buy things for me (my older sister and brother were very burdensome). I paid my own horse stall rent, feed and other items I needed (my dad would help here and there) but I was NEVER a burden to them my entire life. Working keeps a person busy and out of trouble hence my favorite saying: "Idle Hands Are The Devil's Workshop". We have too many idle hands in this country. Put them all to work and they won't be out robbing and murdering at night - they would be too darn tired!!

Always know what you are walking into. If it does not look right, do not go in.
I’ve said this before, it’s time to start punching the girls. If the Navy makes this change, it’s over. My dad is going on 95 and a WWII Navy vet. How dare they do this to those guys. I still get pissed off when I hear the Ace Hardware commercials. The jingle said “Helpful hardware man” for years, then the freakin’ feminists made it so they had to change it. Being a female, I am disgusted by those type of idiotic changes! I’m not that petty or superficial so don’t insult me that way. I was in martial arts for years and we always referred to other female students and teachers as “Sir”. Who cares? Feminism is at the core of most of our decline. Disgusting.
Old Trucker, my friend have you not been paying attention? Men like Patton and MacArthur have been relieved of duty under this Obama administration in huge numbers.

Just think, you could be dead and they prop you up in the drivers seat, press a button and away you go…..

I bought my first car, a ’41 Chevy Coupe in 1960. It had a motor and a heater and I painted it blue.
I drove it to High School and all over SoCal, we cruised Colorado Blvd Friday nights, stopped a Bob’s BigBoy Drive-In up by P.C.C and we did not need a computer to have fun.

I can’t argue with that.

I would hate to think I am not capable of driving my car. What fun would it be to just sit there and put yourself under the control of a machine.
Until somebody stabs you with a finely shaped teradactyl bone.
Seriously??? I hope you are making a joke!! The first murder in history was Cain who slew his brother Abel.. murder has been around since the beginning of time! Wars have also! In those days they used knives, spears and swords. If evil wants to murder.. they will find a way... from choking one to death to poisoning.. from knives to bombs! There are hundreds of ways mankind has used to murder!!
Seriously? You really wonder if I am making a joke?
Old Truckers - I use an [end sarcasm] tag, so people who take everything too seriously will know.
