The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

‘Social media, at the hands of powerful people – influencers, amplifying lies and untruths, is crippling our belief system, turning us against one another. We are not enemies. We must find a way home.’ Neil Young


Quote II

“You have a photograph of our client in a building, unauthorized to be there, with what appears to be a podium or a lectern, I’m not exactly sure which one it is called, but that’s what we have,’’ Attorney Dan Eckhart

Quote III

“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” Meghan McCain


Quote IV

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo

Tonight's Thought of The Day

LOLGF @jack

On Tuesday, Uganda punched back at Facebook and Twitter by banning them from the internet after the two companies started censoring Uganda officials ahead of the election in the country.

"We demand that @Facebook & @Twitter write directly to the individuals that lost their accounts. Since @Facebook cited @MoICT_Ug in their statement, let them write to us so that there’s a chance for a fair hearing. Accounts lost on Facebook belong to @GovUganda employees," tweeted Uganda Media Centre.

Stupidity and recklessness knows no bounds.

Irresponsible Rep says he knows rioters wanted to kill blacks

The man who thinks additional military on Guam could tip the island over, Rep. Hank Johnson said he has no doubt the rioters would have killed black congressmen if they had gotten into the Chamber.

He made the irresponsible comment to Al Sharpton on his show. He even said he had ‘no doubt.’

He credited his survival to the death of the Air Force veteran’s death. He said the shooting kept the mob from getting in.

The newest factor of "the cost of doing business": Want to return your last online purchase? Amazon says donít bother

When you receive a faulty or unwanted item, Amazon usually asks you to initiate a return for a refund or replacement. However, if the item is inexpensive, it might cost the company a lot to ship it back to the warehouse.

So, companies like Amazon and Walmart are asking customers to keep these items to save some money. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, these online retail giants are using AI to determine if it economically makes sense to initiate a return of an unwanted item.

I like Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert.

Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert appeared on Next9News after Democrats called for her resignation following her tweets going viral on social media while the chamber was on lockdown.

Rep. Eric Swalwell blasted Boebert Monday, tweeting “Like any citizen who has committed a crime, Lauren Boebert has the right to remain silent. I suggest that she use it.”

Boebert fired back asking Swalwell “Did you give the same legal advice to Fang Fang?” (the alleged Chinese spy Swalwell was connected to.)

It is always fun to see how the other side lives. Especially if they are wealthy and live by other rules than us regular deplorables. Madonna loves to fly.

Despite coronavirus travel restrictions Madonna has reportedly flown to London, Malawi and Kenya in the past three weeks. On Christmas Eve, she is said to have flown from LA to London with her boyfriend, backing dancer Ahlamalik Williams, and four of her children, David Banda, 15, Mercy James, 14, and twins Estere and Stella, both eight. She then collected her son Rocco, 20, with the group making the journey to Malawi, and then on to Kenya in early January. According to The Sun, her travels to Africa also involved a stopover in Egypt. Sources close to the star told the publication that she and her family have been taking regular coronavirus tests. The mum-of-six has been sharing photos and videos from her travels on Instagram, sharing a video from a plane on December 30 and writing: ‘Warm Heart Of Africa.’

Certainly there are better ways to control panic attacks.

A West Valley City man is accused of assaulting a woman he allegedly asked to use a taser on him when he had panic attacks, police reported.

Ashten Lawrence, 20, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on charges of assault, a class B misdemeanor, and aggravated assault, a third-degree felony, according to a probable cause affidavit.

During an argument on Jan. 2, Lawrence began to have a panic attack. A woman told police that Lawrence had got her a taser for Christmas and "told her to use it on him if he ever went into a panic attack because he would become violent during said panic attacks," the affidavit states.

The woman said she feared for her safety and used the taser on the back of Lawrence's neck.

How far will governments go before the people snap? UK Government May Only Let People Out Once A Week

Claiming that the National Health service is at breaking point, the government is said to be considering implementing stricter rules, including compulsory mask-wearing outdoors, and banning so called ‘extended bubbles’, where people are allowed to meet one person from another household.

Most chilling, however, is the revelation that cabinet ministers have privately debated preventing people from talking to each other in the street and in supermarkets, and even preventing people from leaving home more than once per week, and introducing curfews.

I'm curious: When will California vote to succeed the US and do away with the Bill of Rights?

CALIFORNIA’S INTERNET CENSORSHIP OFFICE IS WATCHING WHAT YOU SAY

"Report misinformation," a flier from California's Office of Election Cybersecurity blares. Social media users are urged to report "misleading" materials to the Secretary of State's office.

A government office created by California Democrats is monitoring hashtags, classifying political speech it opposes by “threat level”, taking screenshots of posts, and then storing the information indefinitely, before reporting the offending speech to social media companies for censorship.


“Election Security is our number one priority,” the Office claims. But its focus isn’t securing elections by fighting hackers or voter fraud. Instead it’s fighting “the spread of mis- and disinformation”. That’s an Orwellian way of saying that it’s fighting and censoring online speech.


Perhaps California will follow the lead of Belarus.

You’re Under Arrest. Snow Kidding.
While the United States of America is crumbling around us, there are actually even more despicable fascist regimes around the globe. Take Belarus, for example…

The power-mad regime in Belarus has ordered a man to be arrested after claiming a snowman represented an “unauthorised protest”.

Police are seeking a 58-year-old man after he decorated the snowman with the phrase “Long Live Belarus”, a motto popular with protests against the Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

Although it is against the rules. I learned a long time ago: Write the damn passwords down.

Lost Passwords Lock Millionaires Out of Their Bitcoin Fortunes

Bitcoin owners are getting rich because the cryptocurrency has soared. But what happens when you can’t access that wealth because you forgot the password to your digital wallet?

Judge James Hanlon of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, wise judge or knee jerk bleeding liberal?

A federal judge has granted a stay of execution pending a competency hearing to Lisa Montgomery, who was scheduled to be put to death on Jan. 12 for murdering a pregnant woman and cutting the baby out of her womb.

Montgomery, the only woman on federal death row, in 2004 strangled Bobbie Jo Stinnett, who was eight months pregnant at the time, before cutting out the baby, which survived. Stinnett succumbed to her wounds.

Judge James Hanlon of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana wrote in the Jan. 11 order (pdf), “Ms. Montgomery’s motion to stay execution is GRANTED to allow the Court to conduct a hearing to determine Ms. Montgomery’s competence to be executed.”

Hanlon noted that Montgomery’s guilty verdict and sentencing were upheld on both appeal and during post-proceeding relief hearings, and that the matter considered in the petition for a stay of execution only relates to whether Montgomery may be lawfully executed in her current mental state.


Not to be outdone, Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. District Court in Washington states I'll see your one killer and raise you one.

But Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. District Court in Washington today ordered a delay on the executions of both convicted murderers until at least March 16, in a move intended to allow them to recover from coronavirus infections.

The ruling, though likely to be challenged by the Justice Department, pushes the execution into the administration of President-elect Joe Biden, who is due to take office on January 20 and opposes the death penalty.

Lawyers for Johnson, 52, and Higgs, 48, argued before Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. District Court in Washington earlier this month that their damaged lung tissue would rupture more quickly after lethal doses of pentobarbital, a powerful barbiturate, had been administered.

If you are going to learn, learn from the good and the bad. Genius Award Winners.

The Santa Cruz Harbor Master has launched a formal investigation following the Sunday rescue of a dozen novice sailors from large ocean swells.

Witnesses agonized for what seemed an eternity as the forecast swells flipped a dozen young yachters into the frigid waters of Santa Cruz Harbor at about 4:30 pm.

"We saw them out in the water in the first place. And we have no why they were even out there," said witness Jenny Umstead.

She and others said a dozen novice yachters tried to re-enter the harbor during a sailing lesson in low tide and large swells.

"We were all terrified because the tide had dropped. So across the harbor, there were these massive waves breaking," said Umstead.


The sailing lesson was operated by the Santa Cruz Yacht Club. Its commodore says the class included intermediate and advanced sailors. An internal investigation is also underway.

Scientists also wondered why anyone was in the sea that day.

These fishermen will have quite the tale to tell. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Two men were out on a winter’s fishing day when they happened on a frantic baby deer that was trapped on a frozen lake. From there, a daring ice rescue began.

Bransen Jackson and his friend saw the fawn trying and failing to stand on the slippery surface of Utah’s Panguitch Lake.

Jackson said to his pal, “Dude, that’s a deer!’ We gotta go save it of course.”

The pair told 2KUTV News that they began carefully making their way over the thin ice. At one point, Jackson’s friend’s boot went through a crack. That was a shock to the nerves, but they decided they couldn’t just let the young mule deer sit there.

When they finally reached the fawn, Jackson told 2KUTV, “I picked it up and it was super calm, super docile, like it kind of understood OK these guys are going to try and help me.”

19 My wife, holding a wheel of semi-soft camembert to my head, forced me to watch five minutes of ABC news.

To say the 'news' readers are delusional does not even come close to accurately describe their rantings.

Apparently some congresscritters voted to ignore the will of the people regarding the presidential election and would not certify the electoral college.

Treason, she said.

Really? Because the Go-To for our government is to gas our citizens - something we can't do to foreigners.

Also, Geneva prevents the military from using hollow points, but the domestic forces have no restrictions on the ammunition they can and routinely use against American citizens.

The Pentagram lawyers prevent soldiers from entering houses of worship, hospitals, women's shelters and schools but the domestic forces attacked a church, gunned down, laid a siege and later gassed and torched to death men, women and children with extreme prejudice.

I would love it if the domestic forces were as handicapped as military in dealing with so-called "terrorists".

136 Here's the bottom line: there aren't 73 million leftists willing to put themselves at risk to enforce the police state they want to bring us. I doubt if there are even 73 thousand of them. They will find it impossible to do all the things they want to do, even if they were competent to get them done. Will they do some damage? Sure. I expect economic malaise, international blunders, and a general decline in our sense of well-being. But will they destroy America? No. Will they give the LIVs an abject lesson in what it means to elect Democrats? You bet. It'll stick for at least a decade, until people forget again.

The Old Testament is replete with the same story over and over again, how the people of Israel strayed from God's Law, got punished for it, and returned for a while, then started the cycle over. We're getting punished, but we're not getting exiled to Babylon or Egypt. This too will pass.

We did muse over how long before some people would come along and abuse the policy by deliberating buying things they want but then demanding a refund just because they want to game the system and get it free.

This idea of yours to just cost them money means that it will just end up costing me and others since Amazon will pass the shrinkage on to other customers.

Though I dont pretend to be in your shoes, I understand a bit how you feel. I find myself moping a lot instead of doing the mountain of important things I need to get done.

I have decided to concentrate on one big item and start chipping at it. To keep my mind straight and sane from the horrendous news I watch my favorite show: Monarch of the Glenn episodes. Plus I try to minimize reading about the news. It works for me.

I hope that you find a productive and enjoyable way to raise your spirits.

228 The Old Testament is replete with the same story over and over again,
how the people of Israel strayed from God's Law, got punished for it,
and returned for a while, then started the cycle over. We're getting
punished, but we're not getting exiled to Babylon or Egypt. This too
will pass.

The problem is we are effectively occupied by China. It's by bribes rather than troops (at the moment, but don't be surprised when "we" start doing joint drills with the Canadians), so there's some possibility the federal government will fail to remain bought, and maybe distract itself with infighting over turf and priorities.

But the party controls the election process and there's no foreseeable, practical way to get that back so that we determine our leaders again. So the Babylonian exile isn't a bad comparison in terms of foreseeable duration. I'm not claiming either of us are prophets, but I note God was really unhappy with prophets in Jeremiah's time who insisted all would be fine in a little while.

I can't even dump it; they haven't let me back in for the last couple of years, and tell me to send a pic or get someone to vouch for me. I considered sending them a picture of my ass with googly eyes on each butt check, but in the end better judgement won out. Get Bent, FB. My account has lain dormant for at least 4 years now.

250 We're getting punished, but we're not getting exiled to Babylon or Egypt. This too will pass.

When God lays down punishment, it comes with the declaration and the sentence delivered through a prophet/messenger.

None of these random strikes. It would be the same as you beating the dog for crapping on the carpet the day after the event.

It would be better to view this as removing the restraining hand of mercy. Up until recently, the Church has been delivering enough salt and light to mitigate much of the usual effects of sinners doing their job description. That is, your problem isn't God judging, it is a consequence of the assholes around you devoting themselves to making your life miserable.

When judgement comes it will be the book end to the Great Flood, not some series of inconveniences.

One guy felt totally liberated because he knew every dollar that he would earn above what the court would allow him to keep would go to his mortal enemy, so his pursuit of money was OVER and with that temptation gone, he could devote himself to a different life path.

We need to learn how to countercheat, whatever that means. They stole a march on us this time. How about we put elections in all questionable locations under court-appointed receivership instead of the Democrat machines? They said we have to sue before the election or it's too late, then fine, let's get it going. Just like a corrupt union or a segregationist school district, get a receiver to take over elections in Philadephia and Allegheny Counties. The evidence is already being gathered. The state can't be trusted, so we have to use the federal courts. But don't just give up.

We need to learn how to countercheat, whatever that means. They stole a march on us this time. How about we put elections in all questionable locations under court-appointed receivership instead of the Democrat machines? They said we have to sue before the election or it's too late, then fine, let's get it going. Just like a corrupt union or a segregationist school district, get a receiver to take over elections in Philadephia and Allegheny Counties. The evidence is already being gathered. The state can't be trusted, so we have to use the federal courts. But don't just give up.

The only way to remain independent and free, is to remain out of debt. That is something that even the (fiat money) Oligarchs must respect or else deny their own legitimacy.

It is why Gab will be harder to take down than Parler (as Gab owns its own servers / architecture). Owning things outright is the path of freedom, which is why the "Great Reset" push to rent everything (or subscribe to a subscription service for everything) should be resisted

323 Greetings from snowy Canuckistan and thanks for the ONT, MisHum!

I am awaiting clarification as to whether I am allowed to drive my car, alone, to my non-essential business and continue doing 30% of my normal sales thru curbside pickup, or be forced to stay home and do only online sales.

There was a whole huge press conference about these possibilities today, but of course it was as clear as tapioca. The consensus seems to be non-essential businesses can continue to sell curbside, but people are not allowed to drive for non-essential purposes.

Which translated means: I can stay open, but customers had better not show up, but if they don't, it's not our problem and don't ask us for any money.

Alex Acosta gave the game away when he gave that press conference about his roll in giving Epstein a sweetheart deal in Florida.

Epstein was an IC asset, he was a human compromat generator, his role was to hobknob and associate with the super-rich of the Western World to entice or create situations where they would become controllable to the Deep State, he would also feed human intel back into the IC and Deep State.

And he's dead, so, as the saying goes, dead men tell no tales.

I just said to look at music before 1963, and after. Two of them were musically intelligent enough to understand what I said, and one even blurted out "yeah, that Turn, Turn, Turn song from the Byrds would have never happened".

Do they appear straight from a Star Trek wardrobe? Look like the Terminator? Was it that they show up buck naked and that is what turned on the Sodomites?

What was their skin tone? Did it match the natives or was it something else? Based on diet, some people groups are larger or smaller; did they roll in as giants?

PBS broadcast as a fundraiser years ago, a live concert in Dublin (IIRC) of Van Morrison and his band, from, 1973. Backed up by some Irish orchestra strings, the concert was supposedly one of the best Morrison concerts ever recorded.
Still have it on the DVR, which will sadly go away when I dump Comcast and go with fast internet and streaming, for about half the price.
Anyway, there is this Irish lass, guessing about 30, who has really long red hair, really beautiful, playing the cello. She's really, really good, as well as really, really hot.
I'm in love with someone from 47 years ago, every time I watch it. I wonder if she is still around.

Rhomboid, you are, unfortunately, quite correct in your assessment. Getting rid of SALT was the last, best chance for smart blue states to bite the bullet and do what needed to be done to control their budgets, and do so by putting the blame on Trump. This was their 'get out of jail free' card, which they could have used - along with COVID - to shed the deadweight.

The long-term good thing that comes from this, and from the inevitable bluing of the rest of the country, is that there will be no place for the locusts to run to eventually. At some point, we'll all need to fight to get us from going over the abyss.

I've since learned. I now think these gender-play games are the end -- near to (if not the ultimate) in degeneracy -- as they deal with the subversion of the immutable traits of existence.

466 So how exactly is the former United States a greater sinner than China?


We know better. China is a pagan country, not particularly blessed by God, so not much is expected of it. My take anyway, Graham had been asked a specific question about America, I think in the 90s.
Posted by: Methos

Our country was a blessing from the Lord. Our founders recognized that. We have taken that blessing and treated it like offal. God has not turned his back on us but he is allowing this to happen. Regarding China, Christianity is growing there at an amazing rate, in spite of everything they do to stop it.

468 No reason God can't punish both. After all, He blasted both Sodom AND Gomorrah.

I don't know of any of this partial judgement stuff, the Scriptures do teach of a SMOD level event so it hits everyone China, the former United States, North Korea, Russia, Brazil...

If you care to crack open a history book, one this is abundantly clear: since the expulsion from the Garden, life has been a total living Hell for the 99% while the 1% tormented the 99% to build monuments.

Consider the two hundred or so years of the United State's existence as the equivalent of a cold front blowing through Hell. Its rare, short-lived, localized and it mitigates a bit from the absolute heat, then is gone.

Be on your knees thankful for this once in a eternity event that you were alive and in the very place the cold front came and went. Billions of people over the entire span of human history never had it anywhere as good as we have it now.

Show some gratitude.

470 286 "what was the color of the deck of the USS Missouri "

Rust-pitted? With patches of olive drab?
Posted by: gp, CTO, Jukt Micronics

Wasn't she decked in teak but painted blue for the surrender ceremony?
Posted by: Tonypete at January 12, 2021 10:52 PM (Rvt8

Yes, much of the deck is teak, and it was incredible.
When the Missouri was still in Bremerton, I was driving near it one afternoon and stopped by. Only a few other people there, and the old gal was in magnificent shape. One could tour and some of radio gear was behind glass or plastic. Even then, in the early '80's, it looked so primitive.
To this day, I was glad I stopped instead of just driving by as I usually did. A few years later, they moved it to Hawaii. Didn't like it at the time, but it makes sense for the beginning/end sequence of the Arizona and the Missouri.

I was listening to Bloomberg News on the way to the office this morning when this story was mentioned.

Not in these words, of course. The newsreader said that Montomery's lawyers argued that because she had a bad upbringing, her mental issues caused her to commit murder.

When he didn't elaborate on what Montgomery did, I knew that it had to be pretty gruesome. Shame to know that I was right.

In law school I was taught first-year Property by a lefty. There are three attributes to property: 1. The right to dispose of it (title); 2. The entitlement to the income from it (the usufruct, for a fancy word), and 3. The right to use it as you see fit. If the government takes what it wants of the usufruct, leaving you the remainder it chooses to leave you, and regulates how you use it, then who has title to it is just an administrative question, because government effectively "owns" it. This is modern socialism and is taught as such.

Not a universalist, no. To the extent we get to share in the punishment of the nation, it's largely because we've made too many compromises with the people of the World in order to get along. But I do think the nation was a special project designed to show what was possible even in this world if we made some effort to organize and treat each other as God intends, and take personal responsibility for doing right rather than letting someone else (typically a "government") do that thinking for us. Folks can argue which of the founding Fathers were deist or really Christian, but the people who followed them were overwhelmingly so, and the rest of the world sees us as a Christian nation regardless. So His name is on the line if we get away with ever increasing wickedness.

My work password (due to requirements imposed on me) is almost 20 characters with numbers, letters, differentiation between lower and upper case and use of punctuation-type symbols. But sure I'll remember all those passwords.

537 I have read, and I might be wrong, but the original treatment for the teak decks was called "holy stone" 'ing', basically using polishing stones wielded by hand to restore the teak appearance. A lot of labor, a lot of sailors grinding away with "holy stones".

True, that. I have thought on the three tests put to Jesus by Satan. They are some old and time-tried challenges. You just know from the test that the Deceiver has pulled out some of his best for the Son Of Man. They are still valid tests today. Especially the second one; how many currently in D.C. has Satan tried out with that one, eh?

I was curious about this too and I looked it up on Wikipedia. That area, pretty much, is known as Forever Springtime for the weather it has. All-time lows in the low 40s, with the all-time highs not being much over the 90s. And plenty of rainfall - something like 30 inches a year to 70 inches. Not too much, not too little. Looks like an area where one could get six crops in a year or so.

I'm guessing that the soil is pretty good but I don't know how to judge this one.

I agree,except my wife bought some ammo from them and gave them my email. The next day the emails started, Debbi let us help you with your next ar build. I just said, honey is there something you want to talk about, how is your ar build going.?

LOL, I did forget to include the area we were discussing, which was the Huambo plateau in Angola. That's the Forever Springtime area - mid 70s for daily highs throughout the year and mid 50s for the daily low. No record of a frost ever - just go out and plant the crop without worrying about whether there will be a frost that night. Must be nice to have this kind of weather if one is a farmer.

I'm actually not sure who's weaker. We're about to find out.

I don't believe Biden makes it to the end of the term. Maybe not even to the end of the year. And I don't believe Harris has control of anything. I think there is going to be an obvious vacuum at the top, even more so than when Obama was in office and ValJar really ran things..

Agreed. Also, the point of Christianity is to follow in the footsteps of Christ, and a life without persecution, while not inherently bad, is not tracking His very well. Enduring injustice without seeking vengeance helps believers get on the same wavelength as their Lord. And, realistically, only evil people can offer the gift of such persecution -- it isn't going to come from a true brother or sister. It also offers opportunities for Christians to find ways to support one another, and earn friends on earth and treasure in heaven.

Stork! It was one of my nieces, as far as I've been told they live in a nunnery.

Actually her father, my sister's ex, was a cop. Her step father is a West Point Graduate. They don't worry about either of that, they think what about uncle eb42. They are good kids, though.

Posted by: Braenyard at January 13, 2021 12:46 AM (CZm2G)

714 The Sequoia engine is famous for longevity and power. But I would not trust a dealer to inspect their own used vehicle for sale unless you know the dealer well. There have been quite a few recalls on the earlier Sequioa models. I guess it is good they fix these issues, but i have never had more recall notices for a vehicle I have owned.

I love the power of the engine but it is a serious gas eater. As for red flags, I would be most concerned with computer stuff, sensors, etc. And some of those limited power train warranties do not cover them. I wouldn't buy a warranty on a used vehicle today if it did not cover computer and sensor stuff.

My suggestion is to get a pro to check it out from stem to stern. Have them check for any faults with electronics, etc. And also go online to look up that specific year as each model year is different and they have their own issues.

If my review my review does not sound glowing, it is because it is not. I wish I had someone who would have given me this advice a few years ago. It doesn't hurt to be sure before you pay up.

I take the third seat out of my Suburbans. That's cargo space, dammit! The '08 is comfortable, handles well, rides well, and has lots of power. It's an ex-RCMP rig. But you cannot load a 4X8 sheet of plywood in it and close the lift gate! That is a serious defect. I have a '96, and '97 as well, and they will both swallow a whole lift of plywood. For my money, the late-'90's models were Peak Suburban.

Tesla's Market Cap is 800 Billion right now. They are putting out about half a million cars a year. Let's say, over the next ten years, they sell 40 million cars, which seems a bit unlikely. You are buying the stock at $20,000 per car sold. Is Tesla making a $20,000 profit on each car so you break even on your ten year investment?

Now Tesla has other businesses/revenue sources. They have the solar panel company, they have service for their cars, they have a floor wax that's also a delicious dessert topping, etc. But that stock is wildly over valued. The price is fueled by speculators and at that price, you aren't investing, you're playing musical chairs for money.

But then, they use many clones of Caterpillar service tools, to execute an entire "in frame" rebuild of that same engine, which never leaves the chassis.

Bonus? Ford specifically engineered that cab assembly for a removal and lift-off some significant shop hours faster, than any other truck on the market. AR-15 type modularity.

Well, it's basically impossible to make a completely rigid car or truck frame. They will all bend a little under heavy loads, and twist in torsion. Jack up one corner of a pickup, and watch the front of the box go out of parallel with the back window.

Unibody cars are pretty rigid, but not absolutely so. And once the car body is bolted onto the frame, the entire assembly is more rigid than the sum of its parts.

Some designers used frame flexing to add compliance for going over bumps.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 13, 2021 01:03 AM (mzC78)

760 I think that was the big safety problem with 1950s (and earlier, and later) cars: everything was way too rigid.

In a bad collision, the car components wouldn't move so the passengers did, violently, and died from the exposure.

794 Miklos, at that price point, it's truly, really hard to predict a "good car" buy, in today's market.

But your pick has as good of odds as any, and better than most. Those VW's tend to have detail nits and pics, but the driveline remains solid, and will get you there.

By time even a Toyota or Honda falls below the $10 retail level on a lot, the values and reliabilities of cars becomes pretty much a crapshoot. TRUST your sense and inspect more closely than you thought you knew how to do. Drill deep into online forums on those cars, too.

And "ushipit" works. MI to Galveston, 850 lb. load for $450. I'll admit, I did arrange pallet strapped forklift loads, end to end. Because I know how to minimize shipping costs. But I did get the right bid, and they've confirmed delivery tomorrow. From a box van, not an open trailer. If any of you have done intermodal shipping, you'll know the screaming deal this is.

846 755 AOP. On most of the Super Duty diesels, yeah, they lift the cab off to get to the engine.

But then, they use many clones of Caterpillar service tools, to execute an entire "in frame" rebuild of that same engine, which never leaves the chassis.

Bonus? Ford specifically engineered that cab assembly for a removal and lift-off some significant shop hours faster, than any other truck on the market. AR-15 type modularity.

859 I am going to try growing dwarf okra because of the gardening thread here. Okra stewed with tomatoes, onions and bacon was unexpectedly good when I tasted it in AL and GA. Wondering if I pick it and pickle it on the same day if it will stay crispy? Supposedly if you grill it you do not get slime? Will report results late summer if it even grows in the high desert.

So I keep at least a jar or two on hand for emergencies, because running out of caffeine is Not An Option. I have a few pounds of unroasted beans as strategic reserve.

They do make de-caffeinated freeze dried. What is the point of decaffeinated coffee is one of those imponderables. Decaffeinated Instant is ... well really strange.

Not going to say your grandmother couldn't be trusted. I think, not sure, Sanka was a specific brand of (only) decaffeinated instant coffee. Don't misunderstand, all instant coffee sucks.

If you don't have enough food in your pantry to make it till maybe April or May, you're doing it wrong. I have maybe 50 pounds of flour.

Bread flour (as opposed to AP) is a little harder to find. Bread flour is way better than AP, for some reason. It smells better baking even. More protein is part of it, not sure why though. Red wheat or winter wheat?

The people pushing this are evil. Here's one Obama DHS lady turning up the heat even higher:

"Trump is the spiritual leader for domestic terrorists and he is their operational leader. He tells them what to do. Now, total isolation. 25th A. Yes. Impeachment. Yes. Deplatforming. Yes. We are still in the tactical phase of a counterterrorism effort. Enough with unity."

949 Maybe there is still some available in brick and mortar stores, hardware or tractor supply, etc., and at non-confiscatory prices, but online - 22 LR ammunition, the nemesis of many a poor defenseless tin can, is now approaching .30 cents or better per round. For the cheap stuff, crappy nobody wants. That's ten times what it cost last year or even 6 months ago probably. .38 special ammo is practically unobtanium online, and two to three dollars a piece. Wow

I urge you to listen - here on the board - to just how many are becoming more and more "shrill" in their optimism that everything is going to be ok, that elections still matter, that '22 is just around the corner, and so on.

I believe what we're seeing is a refusal of many to believe what they're seeing - so they are inventing something different to see. For some - its a delusion of normalcy. For others - a convenient lie that the future victims deserve it.

I won't dismiss the notion - but I can confidently say this, for me this is a distinction without a difference. Because this is how I've personally observed people behave my entire life. And once I peeled away what I saw as bias in historical writings - this is how people have always acted in times of crisis as far back as the written word.

Whatever it is - its consistent.

1027 ran is proposing legislation seeking to destroy Israel in 20 years, according to The Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP).

The bill introduced to the Iranian parliament lists the goal of eliminating Israel by 2041 and the four main goals of the legislation include, per the report:

Exact "decisive act of revenge" on the U.S. for the killing of Quds Force Commander Qasem Soleimani and evicting the U.S. from the Middle East.
Continue Soleimani's mission of destroying Israel.
Counter alleged economic sanctions, which is deemed "terrorism."
Install a defiant foreign policy.
The bill, which the think tank predicts will be passed in weeks, brands Israel an "aggressor Zionist regime" as a threat to Iran, vowing to ramp up military operations against Israel and the U.S.

1041 Inauguration Day falls on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, and it is established by statute as a holiday only for Federal employees who work in the Inauguration Day area (defined in law as the District of Columbia, Montgomery and Prince Georges Counties in Maryland, Arlington and Fairfax Counties in Virginia, and the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church in Virginia). (See 5 U.S.C. 6103(c).) The City of Fairfax is considered to be part of Fairfax County for this purpose.

For Republicans, they are bribing them.
There's a $50 million fund set up by the NeverTrump that will be used to fund the races of anyone who votes to impeach.

They are making it against the law to question them in ways they have gone nuts openly and I mean sitting democrat politicians not their nutroots. There has not been a Republican elected to the Presidency since 1985 that was not greeted with impeachment cries and motions and being called "illegitimate." There has not been a Republican President since Ike that has not had "the resistance" in the civil service.

The media and democrat party (BIRM) demands you ignore the factual really happened Antifa violent riots that we all saw and democrat DAs ignored, but the presence of the capacity to resist is considered to be a coup accompli by these people when they look right.
