    Well Gene, I could send you photocopies of my speeding tickets. And I at least got this thread back on the track of serious political discussion. Oh, and conservatives only catch big ass fish cuz they're rich 1%ers who fish with guides. So there, . . .

    But wait..... Can we have a "serious" political discussion when our government is a three ringed circus full of clowns??

    Because there's only two real political parties, it's a two ringed circus... which may be the problem.

    I actually almost jumped on a Subaru Crosstrek last week but opted for a Nissan Juke instead. The Crosstrek has the potential to be a great awd crossover in that just over $20k price point, but its competitors are offering the turbo injected 4 cylinders. I went with the Juke because the ride height makes it semi-trail friendly and it still gets decent MPG. Unless you drive like I do. I really liked the new Ford Escape too--but with full features it jumped out of my price range.

    I'll admit the average Subaru driver is on the slow side. But then, when you drive above average speed, everyone is on the slow side. I have more issues with Prius drivers than Subaru drivers these days. I think all the slow mid 90s Outback owners are trading in for a Prius. All I know is that with over 300 hp in my Forester, it's a rare occurance to have someone on my tail! :cool:

    I don't want to offend another group of specific vehicle owners so I won't go off on a Prius rant. Evidently, the challenge for a Prius owner must be to drive slow enough that the gas engine never comes on -- which must be somewhere around 22 miles per hour.

    ...and to think at one time a VW Bug was considered slow...

    (I come from a long line of speeders... except for my Mom... she was issued just one speeding ticket in her life and when she was cited, you'd think she was going to die ... according to her, the OSP officer smelled like he'd been drinking so obviously she was given a ticket in error -- and considering the speeds she drove, I'm inclined to believe her)

    Aw man, I drive a Prius. When I'm just wading and don't have to traverse rough roads, I drive it to fish. I own guns. I try to avoid speeding tickets. Can I be in the misfits club?

    So I'd probably get 17 mpg in a Prius because I'd have to be going all out everywhere I went in order to achieve a reasonable speed.

    Yes! This ^^^

    Separately, I bought a Subaru a year ago precisely to raise the average speed of the brand. If you listen closely when I pass, you can hear me yelling, "Get the f--k out of my way, f--king hippies!" There are way too many hippies in Seattle, in Subarus or otherwise.

    Wait, isn't this about politics? What's this "budget" thing you speak of?
