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.

125. Re: DNC Jul 27, 2004, 02:17 Halsy
Good lord, did you not graduate grade school? Most people have basic literacy down by grade six.

You are the one who clearly had distain for the United States.

Distain? Disdain. Had? Has.

The fact is Halsey

It's Halsy, not Halsey. It's right there in the upper right of the post and you still misspell it?

if President Bush was re-elected you would want succession in the United States,


The only thing worse to you then President Bush staying in office is Bush staying in office and being successful.

He's had four years and all he's managed to do is screw up and screw people. Do you - and I use the word loosely - think four more years would change anything for the better?

For you to say that there would be a succession because his reelection only shows your maniacal distain for America.

I'm assuming you mean re-election, secession, and disdain. And no, it only proves that Bush is a divider, not the uniter he always claims he is.

You donít want the country to do well as long as there is a republican in the Executive office.

I'd love to see it. It's just never happened in my lifetime, and I doubt it ever will. Every republican president in my lifetime has been a complete and utter failure for America.

And I have distain?

It would seem so.

You are a fool whose day was long ago.

That may be, but at least I can spell, write, think critically, and possess a formal education. That's something most republican voters sorely lack. Thanks for helping to illustrate that so clearly.

Donít deny youíre a socialist.

I've never denied I'm a social democrat. I'm very proud of it. You make it sound like trying to ensure all mankind has a better life is something to be ashamed of. I well and truly pity you. What a small and pitiful existence you lead.

PS: It's immigrating.

PS: BUZZ. Sorry, Tim, wrong again. Would you care to go for double jeopardy?

Emigrant, Immigrant. Emigrant and emigration have reference to the country from which the migration is made; the correlative words immigrant and immigration have reference to the country into which the migration is made, the former marking the going out from a country, the latter the coming into it.
