A2DAC1985. Good post.

A Hummer really only reflects one thing to me, that the person has no intellect when choosing a decent car. Wasting gas and hogging two spaces in a parking lot just isn't impressive to me.

Would love to see some of these lousy drivers try to drive that monstrosity in a city,lol. They are a hazard in parking lots, you cannot see around them and usually the type of people who drive them are rude and inconsiderate.

Here in Maryland, the state raisses statewide taxes, including sales taxes and gas taxes in rural areas, whenever the urban areas need more money for welfare, food stamps, or mass transit. They are trying to raise the statewide gasoline tax just so Baltimore can get a new light rail line. That kind of thing should be paid for by local taxes. In many states, rural residents are forced to subsidize the cities with their tax money.

Is this pointed at the USA or a global query?

I don't know of any ''wars'' taking place domestically though several countries foreign to ours are roting and fighting among themselves.

The issue, out here in the country, is that the city people keep passing laws that have a bad effect on our lives when they have zero concept of what the country is like or how their laws affect the people who live there.

Maybe the law works fine inside a big city and does not work out in the country. Maybe they are voting for their progressive ideals without any concept of the real effect. Theory and reality are often not the same at all. Whichever it is, it does tend to cause hard feelings.

To sum up this argument,
Country People think city people are snobs.
City People think country people are hicks.

Is that about right?
