Presidential Debates

I don't get it completely, are one of the parties wanting to tax high income earners more to fund healthcare + university education sans hand outs to minorities? What is the definition of high income, over 100k? Over 400k? If they raise tax on the 100k+ crowd they are going to be losing a lot of vo...

Presidential Debates

I think that most people support higher taxes on millionaires, especially if it's to support programs like free public healthcare and university options instead of spreading "democracy" on brown people. Those people are all concentrated in a few voting districts though so they don't count as much a...

Pence Harris debate, and....GO! For one, it went much smoother then the Biden Trump gong show. I also think that the portion I caught on the radio today before exiting the signal range was a Pence dominated affair, meaning that he handled the questions better then Harris did IMO. This all through t...

Car Talk 5: The Juice is Loose!

Pentastar gets a bad rap? I thought these are in everything? In4impressions They are 1. Adequate 2. Perfectly Fine 3. Plenty of Power 4. Don't really need any more. 5. Plenty of power for 95% of uses. Looking for a little more is all. Gotcha, a V8 makes sense for a long term ownership thing you act...

Pentastar gets a bad rap? I thought these are in everything? In4impressions It's a great engine, just most opt for 8 cylinders on a full size truck because bigger is better. I don't want/need bigger in that case, I value better efficiency, and the V6 is FINE I had a 4.3 V6 Silverado and towed my da...

In some weird fucked up way this is how I imagine trucks to be, and all the fancy shit is just a money grab IMO. Admittedly, I am a city slicker and don't really hang with dudes who dick swing their trucks so I haven't really been programmed to want more out of one. In fact when it comes to actually...

Coogles Quest for Flyover Seppuku

I am happy to have defeatable traction and stability control (with a fun "track" mode that is a nice safety net in low grip conditions) and nothing else besides ABS on my car. Too bad you can't avoid most of the other :bs: on most cars now. The R does this, mind you not so gracefully with a dash fu...

Well, to apply just a little logic here. We're talking exclusively about the top range vehicles. TuRD Bro, Rubicunt, etc. I know for a fact at Jeep Rubicon volume is capped due to fuel economy (CAFE) and tailpipe requirements. I'm sure Toyota does the same with the TuRD Bro. You can only build a ce...

It's also a burden to own, for example I have a cracked windshield on my R and dread replacing it because I'll be hit with a VW calibration charge to boot.

I like the screen but it should be a $1200 stand alone. The rest of it is bleh I like recent safety features. Lane keep, radar cruise, auto emergency braking, etc. I especially like blind spot monitors and back up cameras. The Hyundai I rented in Vegas and took to Joshua Tree was an easy cruiser si...

That's a reasonable amount to pay for one of these, $ to fun ratio at it's best IMO. Roof comes off easy, the color is 5/7, features good, and will still get you where you need to get even in apocalyptic times. :word: I think I'm just out of touch/old at heart, but all of these "modern" features ju...

Have you refinanced during the 'VID?

I am definitely on the side of the fence of building wealth now while I'm most productive and energetic. My biggest fear with downsizing right now is inflation, whatever cash I can extract from pulling equity out of my home will be devaluing at a faster rate then historically seen (opinion due to g...

Have you refinanced during the 'VID?

Agreed on all of that. Re: the bolded...

At a certain point, what does it really matter? I can afford everything I want to do as-is...

Dem bicicletas dos, doe.

I haven't worked up the courage to spray my bike with the hose so it's got 1700 miles of filth on it. I'm afraid I'll ruin all of the steel parts with water. I got mine pretty cheap (relatively) but feel somewhat the same about washing it carelessly. Thinking that a bucket of soapy water and a spon...
