Buying a car from Randy
I shake my head in disbelief. My gut roils with disgust. I quake in fear. All of these when it occurs to me that, yes, Americans, by and large, really are that stupid.
This one concerns the country's health care circumstance and the "debate" taking place in congress and around the nation.

The first lot you stop in has some good looking and reasonably equipped models for $20,000. Feeling somewhat randy, you decide to drive up the street a ways, to see what someone else is offering. A smiling salesperson runs up to you, "Hi! My name's Randy, in the market for a car?"
