You might remember that a while back I asked Mike Romano if the poor economy is hurting him, he reported that it wasn’t so bad because a lot of people who would normally go out to eat were now buying high quality meats and eating at home.

Likewise I was down at Viola’s Fitchburg Tire and asked Ray if the Michelin tires were selling worse in a bad economy. (As a rule you pay a lot more for a Michelin Tire than any other brand but the quality is very high.)

Ray Said the Michelin’s were doing great and explained #1. People were buying Michelin’s because they needed cars to last longer and Michelin’s helped, #2 People who have the money will always buy the best #3 Brand loyalty, he bluntly stated that once someone tries Michelin’s they tend to stick with them.

I asked if these tires are really that much better, Ray insisted they were and as you might recall he know more about tires than most.

The pledge of allegiance story out of Illinois is interesting in that it reminded me of something that was said at the Marty Lamb / Jim McGovern debate two weeks ago.

Well we didn’t have the pledge of allegiance there was no American flag to me that was the major thing. That’s what Democrats, Republicans, Independents that what we all stand for is that flag, and that’s very dear to me so I was very hurt by that more than anything. It pretty much set a bad tone for me…

Apparently the league of woman voters would disagree, I find that interesting.

But even more interesting is this at the Huff Po

A Featured Article at HuffPo & NO COMMENTS & CLOSED COMMENTS

The Huffpo community is a large one, how it that there were no comments on a featured post before they were closed?

The answer is simple 10 days before an election the Liberal Huff post doesn’t dare allow its members to speak their mind on the pledge of allegiance in any forum where the American People might see it.

It will take more than closing comments to stop the big red wave.
