Re: Is it time for Atlas to shrug?

Yep, we're currently in northern Indiana, and of course the TV news covers "all of Michiana" so it's figuring prominently in the news. Very sad. I've seen that sort of thing before. One day when I was in the academy, doing "field training" with some detectives who just happened to be in the courthou...

Re: Is it time for Atlas to shrug?

I wish I was surprised by what is happening but I am not at all. We are in a pressure cooker that is about ready to blow. Police agencies using GESTAPO tactics are only making things worse. Agree... cops USED to use some common sense... NOW, it's like you said... a lot of "Gestapo tactics". A LOT o...

Re: Is it time for Atlas to shrug?

Oh, I "checked out" on this country LONG ago. The more time passes, the worse things get. There's no "fixing" it now... the only solution is dissolution; push the "reset" button and start over. I keep my head down, mind my own business, and do my best to stay out of the gubmint's way, and try to kee...

Re: WTF is wrong with bad seller/vendor experience threads?

Agree completely, GH. I was surprised I didn't get flamed for my reference to the THIEVES that were running "Launch" magazine. I got flamed AT LEAST on three separate occasions for DARING to criticize those thieves. And, they ARE THIEVES. When you take money paid in good faith for product you never ...

Re: Is Hillary susceptible to blackmail?

Oh, that thing is shameful... When Jim Bakker did that, they threw him in prison... The Clintons do it, it's a "foundation". Yeah right... Legalized theivery is what it is... People are SO frigging stupid... They forget all the Clinton shenanigans that have gone on since that bunch fell off the turn...

Re: The Teflon Dyke skates yet again.

TOTALLY agree that this country DESPERATELY NEEDS a serious third party. Choosing between the Devil and Beelzebub is no choice at all.

That's why I'm not voting until I can vote straight "Whig"... LOL:)

Just not worth the waste of my time.

Later! OL J R :)

Re: WTF is wrong with bad seller/vendor experience threads?

Yup... I said that the buyer should be as quick in returning it as the seller was in sending it. IMHO that's only fair. I understand the guy has health problems, but ya know, you made the effort to buy the thing, made the effort to get a refund, and made the effort to comment on it-- step up and mai...

Re: WTF is wrong with bad seller/vendor experience threads?

Quite true-- the customer IS ALWAYS right...

But like most truisms, nobody seems to stick to that anymore... Sadly.

Re: Estes Scorpion build thread

Yeah, factory vehicle paint jobs last about, at most, 10 years now and they're COMPLETELY SHOT, for the most part. My 02 F-150 Supercrew had all the clearcoat peel off the hood starting a few years ago, it's almost completely gone now except for a little at the very back corners of the hood by the w...

Re: WTF is wrong with bad seller/vendor experience threads?

I'm with you GH... if you don't want to face the harsh light of criticism and being exposed and labeled as a "crook", then don't do crooked stuff. Pretty simple, ain't it. What I can't figure out is John's part in all this... he just lurks 99% of the time, but comes out swinging over some nobody on ...
