    That's the movie that coined the phrase by Ma: "The son has riz, and the son has set, but here were are in Texas yet," I think. True, they were driving a 1930s car on bad roads, but they were crossing the Panhandle.

    Huh...? :confused:

    It wasn't a personal attack. Just a general observation.

    Oh, I didn't take it that way at all - doubt that anyone would. I just missed the morality connection?

    I suppose there is some connection between responsibilities and moralities.

    One of the things that GWB did to curtail the huge bills associated with Davis-Bacon jobs is somehow by pass it for recovery efforts. The unions blew a gasket. I think it's a great thing. Where is "prevailing wage" for a unskilled laborer $58/hr? Out new fire station that I could have built for $200K cost 1.3 Mill due to Davis-Bacon.

    I was predicting that people who were left homeless and got debit cards would be walking out of Wal Mart with I pods and hundred dollar sunglasses. Whaqt are you going to do? Can't punnish all for some idiots indiscressions.

    This is a joke, right...?! :11:

    I know we are talking about the Navy, but I would at least hope that the dolphins were not armed when the storm hit. :14:
