Out of the Blue

I got the BlueTruck back from the shop... the new shocks have been installed, but DrWrench discovered another issue with the suspension, it seems that a connector on the rear sway bar had disconnected, a further explanation for its rough ride lately. The thing here is that this is the third noticeable issue of this sort that has gone undiagnosed by the local dealer where they perform my scheduled maintenance. Prior to missing the sway bar (which is hanging literally an inch from the shock they discovered was leaking), they also failed to notice any brake wear through several tire rotations and such until the brakes were irreparable and needed replacing, and they also missed a broken hose through at least one oil change that involved inspecting the hoses and belts. Strike three and they are out... I guess I can only blame myself for this, though, as there are certainly enough folks out there who will testify that the car dealer is probably not the place to go for repairs and maintenance. I guess I now qualify as one of them. Yeesh.

"They're at it again..."

Tone what down? They started it, I'm just finishing it. I'm so sick of those tired old myths and lies on the right

Hah, sounds like my little cousin. I didn't start anything. I told you in my post that those were just my opinions and didn't want to start a flame. What myths and lies are you talking about? The ones you stated? The democrats have plenty of their own.

Pro-gun for self protection (not to kill) and sport
So you would take a life?

PilotCman said it best with, "Only if my life and my families life depended on it." But as you see, I also said 'not to kill', meaning I wouldn't shoot-to-kill unless taking out a leg or something didn't stop 'em. You assume too much.

Pro-war only if the cause is right, as I said.
So life really isn't sacred than, is it?

Yeah, it seems that way if you're a terrorist. You think we should just sit here with our tails between our legs waiting for the next attack?

A fetus is not a person

I, too, say that is your opinion, as Warhawk said. The heart of a fetus begins to beat with the child’s own blood less than a month after he/she is conceived.

I was just curious how someone who claims life is so sacred can possibly be in favor of an instrument of death

Hey, how 'bout we just let all the criminals have the guns? If the police and military didn't have guns, then how will they stop people that do? Same thing goes for private citizens who want to keep their selves and familes safe. I'm all for strick background checks and such for gun permits, but why take them away? If someone wants to get a gun to do harm, they'd be able to get one illegally anyways.

Oh, and Tim's got you on the 'emmigrating' thing.. you did add an extra 'm' in there. Although, I'm no English major so grammer and spelling aren't my best subjects. I've probably got a few mistakes myself.

Bah, I didn't want to talk that much. I'm going back outside to do some work.
