  1. It's not new except to me but I have 6 struts to do in the next couple months and this will make it much easier. The tool lived in a local body shop and while it was well used it was also greased regularly and not abused. They upgraded to a larger one.
  2. The lawsuits I've been aware of are all ridiculous so far. But I agree with you it all has to play out to really be done, I just don't see it changing. Razor-thin though the margins are there are just too many blue states.
  3. LOL at the train. This one's finally over I think. No amount of fabrication turns this around. But McConnell is still the devil.
  4. It wasn't today, and my car is (always) dirty but, I recently installed a hitch on the S60R. Now I am not stuck using the beater wagon to move the bikes around.
  5. 2018 was the stock market's worst year since 1931. Does Dumpster still get credit? Or are you going to change your story to some other mindless, canned, crap.
  6. Put new struts, mounts and spring seats in the 95 this weekend. Bilstein TC and kept the original R springs.
  7. Factory collar or had you already done work on it?
  8. I was going to say the cabinets are nice but the garage is way too clean.
  9. There is also a Photobucket fixer plugin for Firefox, e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/photobucket-fixer/. No, I don't think there is one for Safari.
  10. But c'mon, hopefully people don't really think school shootings are the only ones that count? As mentioned, the problem is gun violence. School shootings are a symptom. If you want to think about numbers of shootings look at something like http://www.gunviolencearchive.org. We are two months into 2018, and the USA is sitting at 9000 incidents, 2400 deaths, 4000 injuries. For more shooting rates fun facts consider https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2018/02/15/586014065/deaths-from-gun-violence-how-the-u-s-compares-to-the-rest-of-the-world . The good news is, the death rate by violent shooting in the US is still less than in Iraq! Unfortunately however, the rate in US is twice as high or higher than places like Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Pakistan. etc. etc. lots of good company there. Or maybe we should pat ourselves on the back for still having a lower rate than El Salvador, even though we are the undisputed champion of the world in guns per capita (https://www.cnn.com/2017/10/03/americas/us-gun-statistics/index.html).
  11. Ummm hello, we're doing that right now. Fair enough on the first point. Common ground on the second, I agree.
  12. Even LEOs failed to respond properly this time, and I'm sure it's not the only time. Can we really expect "trained" personnel on site to do any better? More importantly, and I seldom say this but Che you are just plain wrong, dumping more weapons into the soup is not just wrong it is absurd. Regardless of who is carrying them. So let's see first we arm/protect/harden the schools, then maybe the next soft target so every public event (concerts, sports, parks, etc), then the next ... Feed the beast or starve it, which makes more sense? It's admirable to suggest ways to curb school shootings, unfortunately that kind of thinking is going after a symptom not the pathology. Go for the bigger picture. the comment about kids being killed by their parents gets closer to the underlying issue. The issue is gun violence. Let's get rid of gun violence by pitting it against gun violence? I think not.
  13. Another GREAT day for the gun culture and assault weapons! Shoot 'em up, fellas!
