Have to say that farmers in Missouri (?) must be different than the farmers/ranchers hereabouts. See them driving their big diesel pickups all the time, hardly ever with a load or pulling a trailer.

Well, there are conservatives and conservatives, you know. (Reagan's 'big tent' thing...) There are some types of 'conservative' who thrive on making unnecessary smoke & noise, just as there are some 'liberals' who love their big, noisy, chrome-covered guzzlers. In fact, that love seems almost independent of politics.
