I love the styling, actually. I'm a big GMC fan (we have a GMC Yukon XL, and love it!), and I have to say, for what it is, this little guy looks awesome. Where I live, (not far from Tahoe/Sierra Nevadas) I tend to prefer an AWD or 4x4 option. This one is clearly urban, though, and fits the bill for what it does. If they did an electric (think Chevy Volt) version of this vehicle, it actually my do quite well in California.
Frank US: Your generalizing comments about Conservatives are shameful and hateful. Being conservative does not automatically relegate one to having the qualities you've just described. Grow up.

Yep... this is what I would call convenient censorship. This is purely hypocritical and needs to be called on the carpet.

Mike T. said... Is that how that shows up? Hmm... we'll see what happens. My letter was pretty thorough and direct, so I'm not sure that it would be a good candidate for publishing, but... we'll see. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for sharing, Randy. This article is from my home-turf newspaper. I can tell you this: it's articles like these that keep me from ordering it myself. These guys are so left-leaning that it's disgusting. Even the big 'movie review' of the Passion of the Christ was incredibly irreverent, and of course it was given a prominent spot in its respective section. Simply disgusting. Anyway... I read the article, noted the tone and intent of it, and then emailed the writer of the article with my thoughts. Hopefully, the guy will have an open mind and see that he wrongfully reported on the HIS group.

I just thought I'd also say that I agree with you, Randy... we need to find ways to laugh with others. It's good for our bodies and souls. All you have to do is sit at the dinner table at my house some nights... our kids bring all the humor to the table with them... now THAT's a show!

Hey Randy... apparently we are both subscribed to AFA's website. I for one don't even really watch TV at all. I knew about Family Guy, but only recently began to learn about how gross and insulting it is. I immediately followed the form and submitted a complain to the FCC. As an individual, I find it appalling that our culture and media find it funny to put this kind of thing on the air. For goodness sake, there are other sources of humor. Family Guy is a sick show. And when it comes to TV, my motto is "Garbage In, Garbage Out". Jesus made the point clear in that it's what's IN a person that gives them 'darkness'.

Well, I DID grow u in a small aggie town named Chowchilla, although I wouldn't identify as a 'country boy'. My grandpa was an Oakie.

Thanks Randy... yes... there are LOTS of great people out here in Cali... even the people I vehemently disagree with on these topics. I love 'em to pieces!

Yeah... I had to do that with mine to! Can you imagine if we ever turned this into a face-to-face-to-face discussion... we'd be spending half the time simply addressing each other by 'name'. Ha ha! Yes, my humor is a bit dorky. It's the best I can do.

I was using that as an example of the widespread affects of individual rights.

To me, the importance of the issue isn't just confined to the choices or behavior of an individual. I love my state (California) and I love my country. I firmly believe (and history would show that it's true) that wide-spread acceptance of things that are morally wrong end up costing the whole of society. When abortion was legalized, it gave legal rights to women to make individual choices about whether to carry a conceived embryo to term. The choice is individual in nature. But the cost to society is that we are missing MILLIONS of Americans today because of Abortion. The choice is individual, but the impact is on everyone. I was almost aborted, but thank God a woman of faith reached out to my Mom and she just couldn't go through with it. I am now a husband, father of four beautiful children, a deacon in my church, and (ahem) gainfully employed and a tax-paying American. ;-) One person's choice had an affect on me, my wife, and my four children... not to mention the posterity of my descendants. That is why one person's rights/behaviors are important the rest of society.

YAY RAND-AY! I'm glad to hear it, and continue to watch you from afar from the Golden State of Liberal Oppression (Yup, good ol' Cali). Love and Power to the Rand-Blog
