AND they get a pay raise which will offset the higher taxes they just approved. WHY do these people get re-elected??

Yea, it's gonna be rough ride for everyone. Now I know how the gay rights agenda has gained so much traction, seems like we're all taking it in the keister!!!

They get re-elected because everyone says, "Congress is outta control! We need to get those guys outta there! Well...except my congressman. He's okay." Lather, rinse, repeat. Term limits - we need them.

ABSOLUTELY need term limits as a law, but it's never gonna happen. Nobody pays attention to their elections anyway, they just fill in the blank with a familiar name. Would sure be nice if people paid more attention to Congressional elections than they did the Prez.

I've never been one to get into the preacher thing, but I just finished with a book called "The Harbinger" which compares the fall of ancient Israel with everything that's happening in th U.S. right now. It's based on biblical fact and makes a lot if sense. I would recommend everyone read it. Right now, things are just going to get worse.

I don't think you need to go that far back in history, although I'll probably download the book on my tablet. Look at Greece & the EU, then Zimbabwe before that...

The same can be said for any civilization that grew too large and powerful. But the connection between the biblical account of Israel and what is going on now is almost scary. Read Isiah 9:10 and then google the speeches given after 9/11. They are almost verbatim.

I don't doubt it...unoriginal bastards plagiarizing everything and passing it off as their own heartfelt feelings...

Eventually though there will be one "civilization" on Earth. Either we'll get too big and destroy everything and start over from scratch or everyone will finally gain some common sense and learn how to get along.

Truthfully, I believe 100% in population control. It may not be fair to say you can only have one child or whatever, but at the way the human species is reproducing and the fact that it seems the people genetically predisposed to have brains or those that would otherwise be born in a good home with good parents vs. those that live in poverty with parents that care more about their next hit of weed, pill, heroin, alcohol, etc... and their next welfare check boost we're going to continue down the road where there will be food shortages and people either uncapable enough or too lazy to provide for themselves. Those are the people that demand assistance from the government and believe they're entitled to a handout. Those are the people that will bring down society.

Plus people need a place to live. More people, more houses, less places to wheel. that's my math

Which means less land to grow food, which means more genetically engineered food, more jobs which means more employment and more people being supported by my taxes, more everything...

Vegetables have been "bred" to produce a crop that grows more consistently with a consitent harvest time. This is a trait that makes it easier to produce crops for the grocery stores and stuff but it's a trait that also diminishes flavor. I was snacking on some raw veggies the other night and they had no taste. Kind of sucks...

GMOs (genetically modified organisms) are everywhere. In addition to Six's observations, they also are more resistant to disease/fungus/insects/drought. These things are not good for us. The FDA has a tolerance threshold that allows these GMOs if only a "low" percentage of people are effected by these modifications.

Personally, I feel it is all these hormones, GMOs, pesticides, dense populations, air pollution, & too many other man-made problems to list; which make people go on killing sprees, be serial killers, or hippies (anything really stupid & harmful to other people).

Still jealous.

I spent the weekend putting a Clayton long arm kit on an LJ at a friend's shop. The design is a little strange [to me]. I don't see how you can get very good up-travel with the arms directly under the frame. But hey, I'm not and engineer. I'm sure the math works for them.

I was supposed to be working on my Jeep, but that ended up getting pushed to the back burner.

Looks like its waiting for a stinger to be put on...is that in your future?

It's the high rock narrow. It's set up for a grill guard with light mount tabs which I might pick up down the road. It's also winch ready. One thing at a time.

He doesn't have his own tools yet, other than a scroll saw. I also have a pic of him doing some body work on my old Buick from about 7 years ago.

I still remember the day my Dad gave me my first toolbox & tools. Nothing made me feel better than Dad saying, "Get your tools, we gotta fix _____." I think I started with a small hammer, pair of pliers, phillips & flathead screwdriver, and a set of allen wrenches. Nothing I could seriously hurt myself with, but enough to start taking stuff apart in the house...

I'm not saying a long arm can't be a great option...but the Clayton kit puts the JJ's directly under the frame seriously limiting up-travel IMO. If the JJ's were inboarded maybe I'd be more of a fan...still not sure about it. I've read people raving about this kit online, but never seen video of the kit in action off-road. One other thing that I really am not a fan of, is the use of right-hand threaded JJ's on both ends of the control arms. You have to remove one end of the control arms to make any adjustments. if they would have just used a left handed thread on one end...well you could just adjust the length by loosening the jam nuts.

The kit does get kudos for install ease & good instructions. The parts seem to be made of solid materials & if not abused too much will probably hold up well over the long run.

Yeah... i wish my kit used left threads like that as well. While trying to diagnose DW a whike back i had to buy ecentric bolts so the shoo could easily adjust the caster. That or they wrre going to start charging by the hour due to having to take one end down to move it.

I don't understand why not to design it with LH threads to begin with. They are exactly the same price (Currie) and it would make the kit a favorite. The ONLY reason I can think of, would be to keep the control arm the same length if one of the jam nuts comes loose and the control arm starts to get turned. But that isn't logical to me unless you never do any maintenance on your rig.

A son asked his mother the following question:

' Mom, why are wedding dresses white? ' The mother looks at her son and replies:

' Son, this shows your friends and relatives that your bride is pure.'

The son thanks his Mom and goes off to double-check this with his father.

' Dad why are wedding dresses white? '
The father looks at his son in surprise and says:
'Son, all household appliances come in white.'
