    There are a very few honest dealers in the world. That being said, I have worked for many dealers, I have been fired from many dealers. I try to help my customers find a car that fits there wants and needs within their budget. Therefore, my numbers tended to be lower than the more unscrupulous sales people. I find that the largest problem, at least in the area I live and work in, is that there are too many old farts that were selling in the 70′s and 80′s when anything and everything goes. Until these ancient bastions of stupidity and crookedness die off or retire out, change in the auto sales industry will come very slowly. BTW- I work at walmart now.

    On cash deals, it is still required to obtain the social security number, when credit is run, it also runs it through the government system that tracks terrorists. It sucks, but it is the law, and if you are a franchised dealer, you follow it. I worked at many dealers, and I had a friend that couldn’t buy any cars except cash cars from someone’s front yard because his name was similar to someone on the list. I hated it for him.

    Actually 5.56 mm is the NATO (metric) designation, .223 Caliber is the US designation for the same round.

    The easily concealed weapons they are referencing are guns like the FN-57, which can use the .223 round. They are fairly easily concealed, however, they are rare and incredibly expensive, so the average street thug is highly unlikely to have one.

    As far as the “Armor Piercing” ability of the M855, I just have to say this, When I worked for the North Carolina Department of Correction, we used the Ruger Mini-14 Carbine as our standard rifle. We fired .223 SOFT POINT copper jacketed rounds. These are rounds that are supposed to “squish” as our instructors said, to keep them from passing through the body. HOWEVER, they also demonstrated the state issued body armor, using the .357 that was our standard side arm, the Remington 870 with 2 3/4 inch .00 buck loads, and the Ruger Mini-14 Carbine with preveiously mentioned .223 Soft Point CJR. The armor quite nicely and easily stopped the .357 hollow points and the .00 Buck, the .223 went through the vest without even shaking the target on the line. We initially thought the instructor missed.

    I wish my rep was on the list. Unfortunately when we voted I had the choice of Renee Ellmers who is a progressive republican obama lover, or Clay Aiken, a progressive democrat obama lover. Wish I had the money to run myself next go around.

    Until my grandmother came to live with me and my family, her rent was $35 a month in subsidized housing.

    I would think that since the logbook is a legal document, that only the people ACTUALLY operating the vehicle are the only allowed names to be inscribed. While I believe that Jesus is with me every day, I don’t list him on documents that can be subpoenaed for court use because it is difficult to subpoena Jesus to testify as to what he did during any contested incident involving the log book.

    Most of the “relics” out there in the world likely have little to nothing to do with Jesus. I have always doubted the shroud of turin, and pretty much any other “relic” touted by the catholic church as “blessed”. I equate the whole relic garbage as idol worship. I worship God. That’s why I don’t get upset when monuments of the ten commandments, crosses, statues, nativities, and other such things are protested or removed. You can take away and destroy an object, but you can not take away and destroy my faith or my God.

    Accept-The-Truth: I’m thinking that I am probably older than you. And for everyone else, I do know a thing or two about government regulation and taxes and etc…

    I also know this, Utility companies are regulated by the government. This is why they can not arbitrarily, willy-nilly raise rates whenever the CEO decides he wants a new boat. What the internet companies want to do, is be able to decide who (by right of most money) can be on the internet. It works like this: Say I have an internet based business. I also have several competitors. Suppose that my small internet business is just that, a one or two man start up operation. Then suppose, that one of my competitors, is purchased by a large corporate conglomerate. They see me on the web, and decide that they don’t like having competition, so, they start dumping piles of cash on the ISP’s, more cash than I can hope to compete with, since they are getting so much money from my competitor, anyone anywhere can access their website at light speed, while those who want to check out mine, can only access it at dial up speed. Because my competitor gives more money, the ISP says that I don’t deserve for YOU to have the same access to my site as my competitor does to his. Or how about this, your community college can’t afford to pay up like Duke University, so their web site is constrained to allow more people to freely access the Duke web site.

    Maybe you guys should remove your anti-obama glasses and think about what you’re read

    This is THE ONE THING the administration gets right. Why do not these people understand that the FCC rules are GOOD FOR US???

    For those of you that scream against this because “Obama”, let me ask you, do you want to pay a larger amount of money to access the blaze?? Do you think that it is fair that people with little money and have to go to the library for internet access will be allowed access only at speeds equivalent to dial up??

    If you answer yes, than you are a moron. The internet should be freely accessible to ANYONE that has a connection, and people should NOT have to pay more to access content. How would you feel if your internet provider decided that The Blaze, or whatever porn site you visit was not paying them enough so they hindered your access to it?????

    On a serious note, I have always wondered why no energy company has used things like hog waste to produce electricity. Heck, the theory has been around for a while, it was even central to the story of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. If I had a hog farm, I would find a way to utilize it rather than just having it sit around in lagoons.

    When I was in the Air Force, I regularly watched air crews pulling planes around with gadgets not much larger than your average pallet jack. So I was understandably unimpressed by the Toyota pulling the space shuttle.

    I grew up watching Larry Stogner. I have met him a couple of times at events like the state fair. He was always very personable on screen and off. I hate to hear of anyone contracting such a terrible disease. I wish him and his family well.

    Actually, WTVD moved their operations to Raleigh about 6 years ago. They are located on Fayetteville Street.

    Show me where in the bible it says God has either. I enjoy the Newsboys, they are one of my top ten favorite groups, along side ZZ Top, Kiss, The Eagles and several other groups of varying genres. I went on two cruises sponsored by Premier Christian Cruises that featured the Newsboys as well as many other Christian artists. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting the Newsboys, and dining with Michael Tate. They are great guys that are just as down to earth as anyone else I have ever met. That these guys and many others I encountered on the ship actually mingled among their fans/fellow passengers speaks volumes about their state of being. I know of no secular artists that would do the same. Many of these artists will also tell you straight up that they are in the music business, and it is in fact a business. Ministry is WHY they do what they do, but it takes a back seat to the BUSINESS side of it, because if you fail at the business side, you fail at the ministry.

    My son went to war. Just like me, and may father, and grand father, and great grandfather, etc…… My family has served this great nation VOLUNTARILY since before it was a nation. What’s your point?

    As the roman emperor Diocletian said at his abdication, “Power should only be granted to those who desire it least.”

    And many believers I know acknowledge this. The article even says that the event would have taken place in April. The Church co-opted the pagan festival of Saturnailia and turned it into christmas so that the pagan converts could more readily accept the celebration.

    You do realize that at 17 she can enlist in the military, and at 14, she could have an abortion without her parents’ knowledge right????

    So why, praytell, is her decision on this not honored????

    If the victim is black, this will end badly.
