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.

Choice = murder of the unborn.

A fetus is not a person. And better terminate an unwanted pregnancy, than bring another person into an overcrowed world who won't be properly cared for emotionally and financially and then only goes one (most likely) to be part of the problematic cycle instead of the solution. No one is pro-abortion. It's not like anyone enjoys the thought of it or doing it. It is, however, a personal choice that the religious right needs to respect. I don't try and enforce my values on the religious right, so why do thy think they should be able to enforce theirs on mine?

What's wrong with pro-gun?

I don't have a real problem with guns. I was just curious how someone who claims life is so sacred can possibly be in favor of an instrument of death.

Without war, one cannot have peace.

Yeah, Ghandi really kicked England's ass. Nice use of Orwellian Newspeak, war is peace. LOL!

Death is a heck of a deterrant to the repeat offenders of murders and other very serious crimes

The statistics prove you wrong. Most capital crimes are crimes of passion anyway. Most people aren't considering the consequences when they kill. They simply (re)act and make the wrong choice. Capital punishment has never proved an effective deterrant at all. Regardless, I'm still for it for personal reasons.

I do not like the government taking the money I worked for and giving it to lazy slobs on couches.

We subsidize everything else - and to far greater degree - so why not people? Trillions in subsidies and tax breaks for corporations and the rich is ok, but helping out people who really need it is wrong? Why not just execute them? Slave labor camps maybe? They're indentured servants already.

Wow, you're quite the christian. I guess being anti-choice is how you assuage your guilt for everything else. gg hypocrisy.
