As if it has not been a lousy week already.  My AC blew up during what must be the hottest time of Summer.  Eight days and a thousand bucks later.  My turtle died, my living room ceiling fan quit working, my Sentry safe no longer opens, despite every attempt and idea from Sentry, with the final diagnosis that it has to be destroyed to be opened, my dog pissed on my brand new Tempurpedic mattress, and my wife had her hours cut at work.  Now, the worst news ever, Camaro Performers is no longer.  They were nice enough to send me a replacement subscription of a horrible magazine that I had cancelled last year because it was that bad.  I would rather have had a choice of one of their other magazines, or maybe a subscription of Needlepoint Monthly, but certainly not what they sent.  How about instead, a pro-rated refund?  Is there even any money left to give back to all of us, as I am sure I am not the only one upset over this.

Anyway, now is dashed my hopes of my Camaro one day gracing the pages, or maybe even the cover of Camaro Performers.

I guess it goes to show just how bad our economy really is, and despite our 6th Summer of Recovery, or claims by our betters that the economy is the best it has ever been, that it's just not true.  The economy sucks and now my favorite magazine is gone for good.  What am I supposed to read while visiting the "library"?  I blame obama for this.

I know it's not much of a consolation, but can I send you a pic of my Camaro for the homepage? Maybe help your day just a little?

As far as the comments on the economy..............2x

Sounds like a week I had a few months ago.  And "online" is killing print on paper. I still like books, not a Kindle fan.

 Remember the catch phrase "disposable income " ? Guess it's been disposed of.

If you have a child in college....costs are truly through the roof, say from just 10 years ago. Believe me brother ,if your out earning a living, we're all in the same boat.

Thats to bad about the economy, and Camaro performers going under. I know Romney would have been more accountable, but it still would have been tough to get the economy humming again. I am interested to see who becomes the front runner to go against Hilary. Think of all the publications that have gone under though, newsweek, and the news papers in general are struggling. Maybe the next candidate can run on a platform of bringing back (the economy)& all the great car publications!

its shameful that it doesn't matter anymore  (about the economy re our elections), but it doesn't..   Less than half the voters *care* about the economy; the majority lives on the largesse of the gov't.. and will continue voting for their 'freebies'...  :(      we are on a steep downhill slide as a country.... and it sickens me.

So, our next president that gets my vote will have to swear to the following...

"People of America, if I am elected president, I promise to restore the economy, end terrorism, Crush russia and put putin in his place, level north korea and iran, drill for oil anywhere it is until we have so much of the stuff that the oil companies pay us to take it off their hands, frack the fracking frackible fracks wherever the frack it is, re-open and build new coal plants everywhere so electricity is cheaper than dirt, pass a law that makes CAFE standards applicable to coffee quality only and nothing to do with MPG of cars, do away with every single law restricting our 2nd amendment and force anit-gun people to buy a gun, shut down the IRS because of their POS attiutde, shut down the EPA ASAP, close the DOE PDQ, and go after the DEA until they are DOA, restore our military and let them do what they do best and force all politicians' children to join, re-open the agency of Un-American activities and chase down every low down commie/socialist/preogressvie despot and flog them publicly, but ONLY AFTER I, as president of the United States of America, restores Camaro Performers."

I wonder lately if getting America back on tract is a possible reality or simply a pipedream.  I try to be hopeful, but it's awful hard to these days.

That is funny but on point. I would play devils advocate, and say the continued success of the Mustang and Camaro and (challenger)may be to a small degree attributed to the spa/cafe standards in upping the fuel economy and the longevity of a clean running car. I would say most of the Mustangs and Camaros and Challengers are not SS or GT or Hemi powered cars, most of them probably are the 6 cylinder good gas milage cars and in some ways the big 3 backed into continuing success because of the regulations. I am a very strong supporter of capitalism and it is possible they would have figured out the gas economy thing for themselves is the bread and butter, but I think there is a small amount of credit due to those agencies for this. You could make the argument that(  beyond the government bailouts of the auto manufacturers) the cafe standards have forced the big 3 to produce gas economy cars, and some sense have kept them relevant in the car market. I can only imagine what the market would look like as gasoline prices continue to be a burden to the average joe what kind of "economy cars" the big three could whip out when oil prices/gas prices surge. As Lutz the former guru at GM/chrylser has said they can't  change on a dime when consumers all of sudden want to trade in their suvs for prius's.

In general I think your right just cut all the government agencies, except for the military and veterans affairs, & SEAL THE BORDER FOR GODS SAKE!, No visas for 5 years while they sort out who is in the united states legally. If they can't figure it out in 5 years, no visas or legal immigration for another 5.
Put up a fence/wall like the did for east germany, that worked for how many years?  get the russians to do something useful... "Mr Gorbechev please build us a wall!"

Now I got a great chuckle on that this sunny morning with my first great mug of coffee brew! But there is a clear message and many of us know our country needs to change course. Better stop know and keep the smile and enjoy my coffee. Let's see now, oh yea, back to ESPN...... :)

Guys,
 There are MANY countries with All the qualities that you guys seem to long for. . . . pack up and move! Whining does nothing, just ask congress. Do you live in a bankrupt state living off the backs of California, New York, Texas and Colorado?
   The first step would be to get those states solvent. you have to fix the rust and dents before you can paint the whole car.  On a positive note I just recently found all my issues AUTOBUFF magazine!
