    Went to the local parts store, Advanced auto, they told me buy as much anti freeze as possible before dec 15 because they will be putting a hold on it due to shortages of the product. Has anyone heard of this yet? I see them doing this with gasoline soon to.

    Times are just getting tougher and tougher everyday, all of us need to just not go to work for one hole week and all of this would be over, the gov. would hate all of us but we need to do it! Im sure alot of you think I am stupid for saying this, but alot of americans are saying just this.

    However sorry to get off track from orig, post, anyone hear of the anti freeze shortage? why would they have a shortage when the season has JUST started? Cold season that is.

    Yes it was reported on the Pee Wee Herman Business Report that on 12/15 the government will limit the sale of all forms of anti-freeze in an attempt to slow global warning. " the use of Ethyl glycol to inhibit freezing is one of the major contributors to global warming exceeding the effect of all the hot air in Washington D.C." reported the bow tied commentator. Faced with either restricting the number of nubile young female interns or banning the sale of anti-freeze, congress voted for restricting the sale of Ethyl Glycol. "remember the little red dress" was the cry heard across the capital. Pundits feel this is a perfect example of how the American public are not the only ones getting fu^%ed

    In other late breaking news the Sponge Bob's federal watchdog site reports
    starting 12/1 the government will force all snowplow retailers to add a 50% federal tax on snowplows.

    THIS MEANS IF YOU"RE BUYING A NEW PLOW DO IT BEFORE 12/1.

    hey cann't blame a guy for trying.:jester:
