Subject: Re: Saab is Anti-Hunting and Anti-Gun

Hey gang, In a democracy, unless I'm mistaken, everyone is still allowed the right to their own opinions (armed or otherwise *wry grin*). Since I don't think that this news group is an appropriate forum for political views, can we please stop flogging a dead horse (no offense to animal activists out there!) and drop this whole thread once and for all? Jesus, this has gone on WAAAAAAYYYY too long. It's dull, dull, dull and you can argue this until hell freezes over. Also, I hate having to wait for all these extra and unnecessary messages that have nothing to do with cars anymore to download on my browser. Please, I beg you all to move on and believe what you want and save the rhetoric for soapbox Sundays. Everyone's right, okay boys? Back to your corners and come out smiling, huh? Now shall we get back to the subject at hand and talk about our beloved Saabs? :) Sheesh!
