That's hilarious. Cheney's idea of a booming economy is 400,000 laid off people selling the last of their possessions on eBay.<br><br>But what about those nice people who used to work in pawn shops? They're out of work now because the destitute can go to eBay and hawk their wife's wedding ring to pay the rent now.<br><br><br><br>luciferase is a four nineteener
“That’s a source that didn’t even exist 10 years ago,” Cheney told an audience in Cincinnati on Thursday. “Four hundred thousand people make some money trading on eBay.”<br><br>A very true statement . . . <br><br>Yet, the "positive" and "optimistic" John Edwards sneered:<br><br> “If we only included bake sales and how much money kids make at lemonade stands, this economy would really be cooking”<br><br>Lovely. Gotta love those optimistic liberals. . . <br><br>****************<br><br>[color:blue]VOTE</font color=blue>[color:red] for President George W. Bush on November 2, 2004</font color=red>

It's money changing hands alright, but there's not really any NEW money going back and forth (unless you count the ebay 'shops')- it's just people getting (usually less) money back for crap they bought somewhere else...<br><br><br><br>[color:white]God speed, mikeb.

I guess that's like when Reagan called homeless people 'happy campers.' That was optimism right? And any statements to contrary was just liberal pessimism. <br><br>PS: don't forget, eBay was around and quite successful before the dot-com bust even started. It's not like eBay is something that has popped up in the last 4 years.<br><br>
