i have to "hand fill" my jeep for the last few seconds or else it spills out the neck due to the fill speed, even on the first notch. when it gets close to full i'll just barely squeeze the handle until it clicks off.

What racist stereotypes? If there are any around, they came out of your own sicko head.

That's how our US economy is skewed, and the average income doesn't tell the story of the average Joe's loss of earning and purchasing power.
Problem here is just the opposite. What you're calling "the average Joe" might better be described as "Bob at the bottom". And sure, the bottom doesn't move a whole lot - though I bet Bob & his family probably have cell phones, a 40-inch flat-screen TV or two, a couple hundred channels of cable...

The economy isn't your bimodal distribution with lots of low-wage jobs leavened with a few multi-millionaires. There are a whole lot of people living closer to the average than your Joe Sixpack. Who do you think buys all those new cars? If it was just millionaires, everyone but BMW & Porsche would be out of business.

This isn't the first time that SentraSE-R has been provocative. The moderators let him get away with it - but why should we let this garbage pass without comment?

Where was there anything said in this thread about RACE? Why is it being injected? Why is he trying to play the "race card" here?

Sicko isn't the only word for it. His manipulative strategy needs to be exposed and denounced.
