    Happy belated New Year everyone. On that note, here's your happy New Year news....
    <font size="3">Motorists' habits spur call for tax increases</font>

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090102/ap_on_go_ot/gas_tax


    WASHINGTON Motorists are driving less and buying less gasoline, which
    means fuel taxes aren't raising enough money to keep pace with the cost
    of road, bridge and transit programs.


    A federal commission created by Congress to find a way to make up the
    growing revenue shortfall in the program that funds highway repairs and
    construction is talking about increasing federal gas and diesel taxes.


    A roughly 50 percent increase in gasoline and diesel fuel taxes is
    being urged by the commission until the government devises another way
    for motorists to pay for using public roads.


    The 15-member National Commission on Surface Transportation
    Infrastructure Financing is the second group in a year to call for
    increasing the current 18.4 cents a gallon federal tax on gasoline and
    the 24.4 cents a gallon tax on diesel. State fuel taxes vary from state
    to state.


    In a report expected in late January, members of the infrastructure
    financing commission say they will urge Congress to raise the gas tax
    by 10 cents a gallon and the diesel tax by about 12 cents to 15 cents a
    gallon. At the same time, the commission will recommend tying the fuel
    tax rates to inflation.


    The commission will also recommend that states raise their fuel taxes
    and make greater use of toll roads and fees for rush-hour driving.

    This whole Israel invasion seems like a plan to get Iran to do something, give a just cause for an airstrike.
    Something seems fishy about the whole deal

    Absolutely!!!!!! Kurt Warner implied that in the post game interview....the weather ALONE will kill the Cards.</P>


    CAN WE GET DARREN SPROLES ON OUR TEAM????????!!!!!!!! LIKE....YESTERDAY?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you SEE that little guy, and what he did in that game?????!!!!!!!! LT is hurt and goes to the locker room &amp; this football midget machine comes out and weaves all over the field, like a 3 year old, who can move around a room, faster than a bolt of lightening. OMG!!!!!!!!</P>


    I did not even think that you could BE in the NFL, if you were 5'6" and 180 lbs.!!!!!???? That guy was AMAZING!!!!! </P>


    I was talking to my buddies in San Diego last night &amp; they were hoopin' and hollerin' like a tribe of banchies......that stadium was still packed to the top tiers, in OVERTIME!!!! (no "I better leave to beat traffic" crowd)</P>


    The Cards and the Chargers both lucked out, BIG TIME, but those were some EXCITING games!</P>


    Neither team is a threat to us.....but I was so happy for old man, Kurt Warner, and little midget man, Darren Sproles....they BOTH rocked, and played some great FOOTBALL!!!!!!!</P>

    I can't say I noticed that but I am glad it makes you happy. On a sadder note Bolt beat Phelps for top international athlete. How is that even possible?

    http://sports.espn.go.com/oly/news/story?id=3804774


    [/quote]


    He did? That's bogus....must be a little anti-american bias there. Yes, Bolt was amazingly fast, but what MP did was breaking records 8 times over!! Bolt didn't come close to that.....
    [/quote]
    It really is preposterous, ludicrous and downright intolerable. Bolt did things that had never been done before but give me a break. The man is fast but everyone can run. You have the most elite level athletes in the world that have been swimming for the last 4 years to beat Michael Phelps and they still can't do it. I don't understand it.
    [/quote]

    Think of it this way, if they reversed roles, and Bolt won those 8 swimming medals, he would still win hands down!!

    I suppose this is the only thing that MP can't win! And ironically it is out of his hands!!

    I somehow feel MP could care less!!!



    [/quote]</P>


    ABSOLUTELY!!!!!!!!! MP has had a TON of awards, he was probably more than happy to share the wealth with Bolt, who helps kids in sports, as well, in a HORRIBLY impoverished country.</P>


    I TOTALLY agree with you, that MP is like Eli Manning. Both stay hungry to win, but they are both HUMBLE. </P>


    I was reading about how relieved and happy Eli was, when Brett Favre came to town. Eli said it got the cameras out of his face, and the press off of his back, for three seconds, so that he could finally breathe and have some sort of life....and just concertrate on FOOTBALL!!!!!</P>
