My in-laws are Fox News republicans. I got COVID and so did my wife who had the initial vax. She got it super fast. She was prioritized I guess. I didn’t want her to get it. I wasn’t even at home. Anyway, we got COVID and her parents asked her if I regretted not getting vaxxed now and she replied “why would he? We both have it. If anything he’s more against it now than ever” The main deal is she’s telling them I had it a little worse. That could be true. The wife a vitamin D shot not long before that, I awake at night, I smoke some and I Brent get sick so I’m a giant baby when I am. I complained about the loss of smell a lot too. It really bothered me thinking I couldn’t smell a coolant leak on a car or something burning in the oven. I didn’t even realize it at first. I was sick and neglected a litter box and thought “I should’ve smelled this” then it drove me nuts. The lack of taste sucked but I definitely didn’t overeat. To me everything tasted too salty.
Anyway, they thought they had me. She tells them “nope! He’s never changing his mind and you trying will only make him point out we both got it and and it’s not that bad”.
Fast forward to Thanksgiving. My wife’s friends got it. All vaxxed. Ruined their thanksgiving. Everyone involved was recently boosted except my wife. She didn’t get it only one other person involved didn’t get it. He has cancer. Probably something he is already on something that prevented it. But everyone repeats the line “thankfully I was vaxxed. It was mild because of the vax” It was mild when I had it back in an earlier variant that should’ve been worse. I didn’t even cough more than normal. I have snot all the time. It’s dusty here. I’ve been around it and I others that had it. Never got it again. Not that I’ve noticed.
I think they mean he’s not like a Republican voter. Meaning the Republican politicians aren’t the real republicans. I’m only chiming in with my take on it.
Why would they or should they? Trump warned them and they “smirked” and the MSM reported it as if Trump was wrong and they were correct.
The msm knew he was innocent maybe at the start. They didn’t exactly investigate when they had the story they wanted with the edited video and the lying Indian. They stealth edited all their articles on that Indian to say he was a Nam “era” vet in place of Vietnam vet. It’s why they hate archive sites. They want to pretend they didn’t lie.
I think what certified door expert, James Cameron is saying is that he prefers men without the puberty.
She deserves it. I’ll pass on watching. I could live without ever seeing her face again. Although, she has a new face. Unsure how many here have seen it. She had work done. To quote my dear old dad “it looked like a monkeys ass sewed up with a grapevine”. That’s pretty funny. I was high class. Grew up in a trailer that wasn’t in a park. I prefer my own “looks like Bondo on a whisky dent”
This is a Ford F-250 gas burner. I replaced the fuel cap and there’s a solenoid on that system that goes bad. That helped a lot. Got it down to a small leak it tells me. I don’t have to pass emissions here. I don’t. Only a safety inspection. Won’t keep me off the road. Only emissions they do is look under it with a mirror to see if I have converters (I think. They may not even do that.) maybe check the gas cap but maybe I’m also remembering Dallas or somewhere else. Anyway. They don’t care about that leak. I want my converters replaced. I hate to spend the money since they mess up so easily. I can tell the difference in how it runs. Feels bogged down. Gets less milage too. It’s significant. Couple mpg hwy. That’s a lot when ya don’t get a lot. I haven’t looked into it much.
I replaced the fuel pump a couple of years ago. Im worried I didn’t get something back on proper when I did that. I don’t think it needed a pump. I think I got bad fuel. I couldn’t risk being without it. Had a ton of miles. I replaced it to be safe. So much evap garbage. Maybe I’ll find it. I need lifters or whatever they call them now more than anything. And a fuel filter I should’ve changed last oil change. It’s not starting quick enough. In my opinion they start too quickly these days. Too much dry start. Wears on bearings. I don’t want to be stranded. Ugh.
I gotta focus on laundry. Haha. I think I’m going to get my wife a Toyota next time. Hopefully she will go for an SUV or pickup 4x4 so I can inherit it for camping. I’m not messing with Ford again. Especially if it’s not a truck. Unless she wants an antique. I’ll do that. She can drive manual and does well with a proper working carburetor. I don’t think would would like it though. Might have to be an EFI conversion. She never did like waiting for anything to warm up. Hell, what’s antique now? 1997? Sounds pretty civilized to me.
What? I don’t want a manual on an EV. I don’t want an EV. I must have not been clear. Maybe that’s my mistake.
My dad told me long ago he left the Republican Party over how they did Nixon. I was a kid. I wasn’t even born when that happened. I never tried attempted to argue politics with him until I was an adult and paying taxes. Wasn’t much point. He’s an old model Boomer and he’s right with me today. He doesn’t even mess with Fox News anymore. Calls me to ask me what he hasn’t been told. We get along great these days.
I like your idea about dropping in a carb. I was going the other way 20 years ago. When you could still interchange. You will need a point type ignition too. A way to pump fuel. I got close as I could last truck I bought. Couldn’t get a manual transmission. I didn’t get manual 4x4, crank windows and such. If you are going to have EFI may as well have cruise control. Works way better than the cruise did on carbs. I bought a really clean fleet truck. Rubber floors but cloth seats. I really wanted to avoid electronic 4x4. Had to rebuild the transmission since then. It’s $3500 with tax and an a minor upgrade on the torque converter they sold me on. Manual shift is the way to go. I still have a rear drive car that’s manual shift. Ugly as sin and always something wrong but it’s always cheap, it’s almost always easy and loads of the time it’s lifetime warranty.
I will probably run my current truck to dust. This one is complicated enough. Hard enough. I have an evap leak I can’t locate now. Damn light stays on. So until I find it I am constantly checking codes to see if I have new crap that isn’t the converters.
I do like EFI though. It’s nice to crank up instantly without pumping or having to warm up and such. It’s an okay trade for some things. I’d like an early obd2 and nothing more crazy.
If we dropped her naked we could use her to clear safe landing spots. Reuse her until it doesn’t work. Call it green. My original way is probably against the Geneva convention. If it’s not, maybe it should be. It’s worse than small pox blankets. Who wouldn’t rather have the pox?
I definitely don’t think Elon is on our side but he’s not on their side anymore. I guess that’s good. I don’t want to be like all the lefties that decided they love the Bush clan and the Cheney clan because they hate Trump. Love what I’m seeing, though. He’s said he’s not with us so I do respect the honesty. I hope he doesn’t commit suicide or have a plane crash. He is stirring up shit. Tends to drain better stirred up.
I never even heard of this guy until this week. Maybe that was his plan.
How about I don’t worry about Kanye at all. Unless we want to talk about how his being cancelled sort of proves what he said to be correct. He said they control it all and they cut him off on loads of business deals. Even got his bank account shut off. So…. If we are to talk about Kanye let’s start right there. If we aren’t going to talk about that first then we have nothing to talk about.
Now he needs to make a 4x4 truck that isn’t electric or running everything including the door locks through a computer. Actually, I want manual locks, manual windows, manual mirrors and a manual transmission too. Do that. Give me control over my own vehicle and he can be secretary of transportation for all I care. Lord knows he would be more qualified than the joke we have now.
I can agree on fatso. That’s about all. Republicans will have to really keep pushing this anti Trump crap on fake ass Fox News or learn to cheat at primaries if they don’t want Trump as the nominee.
The fact that big media sat on the Epstein story tells me they don’t care about big stories. They could have reported on Fast & Furious and the like more but they bombarded us with Brittny Spears shaving her head.
Remember when they all said “it’s a private company, it can do what it wants!” Well, now it’s more private than it has been in a long time. Maybe ever. I have no idea about the ever. But it’s no longer publicly traded. What changed their opinion on unrelated matter? King is upset the child porn links aren’t available anymore.
Both parties? Do they mean the 2 parties that are United against Trump? The uniparty?
These people need to look up the definition of bigot. They would probably change it if they did. A bigot is someone who is intolerant of others beliefs. Adam Schiff believes it’s okay go fuck kids. I’m intolerant of that belief. That makes be a proud bigot. They are the biggest bigots of all. They are intolerant of anyone that doesn’t believe 100% like themselves. They can’t even agree to disagree. They reward loyalty and cancel anyone that isn’t a mouth piece.
Parachuted into Benghazi.
She’s a firecracker! Her husband is a lucky man. Her kids are lucky too.
I’ll accept a correction. I’m no Hitler expert but I know his rallies were much larger than Biden’s. I’ve seen fast food restaurants open with bigger crowds. I don’t even know why they bother posting for him. I guess so we know he’s still alive. Hopefully there won’t be so many bots to praise him anymore. Hopefully.
Hopefully it’s still water cooler talk on Monday. The shady ass government likes to pass crap on the weekends so by Monday it’s not even news because somebody got shot at a nightclub or we can talk about all the shootings in Chicago and how we should ban guns. I do tend to agree. I was busy this week and all this crap about Belinciago…. I don’t know the clothing brand name came up in passing. Came and went here so fast I barely caught it. I had to hit a podcast to catch up. If it had been a Friday night, I’d probably know it all the first night. So, you could be very correct. It makes sense.
