  1. I believe I said that. You are preaching to the choir.
  2. So I watched this review of the EV F-150. I’m generally uninterested in EV’s because I think they are over priced and re-fueling takes a lot longer than 5 minutes. Plus I just like the sound and feel of a combustion engine. But it seems like Ford did a really good job with the EV F-150 Lightning. The price, range, features not found in a regular F-150 make it pretty interesting. Plus its fast as hell and it doesn’t look like a dumbass Cyber Truck. The front trunk is a big plus. One recurring issue with my Tundra when we head to airport with 4 people and luggage in the rain. Yeah I know. Covers are available. But they are a pain in the ass. Having a huge forward trunk is a good thing. The range may actually be better than 450 miles if you’re not hauling a trailer or a load of brinks in the bed. The charging process doesn’t go away but it becomes more practical for everything but a drive to Florida. The price for the base model is $40k. You can get it decked out and pay a huge price, but you don’t have to. Plus, it also can be an alternate power source for at least a portion of your household AC power loads. It has a 240 volt out. I didn’t see the full spec but thats probably 2 pole and can probably power something like a Reliant Electric 30 amp manual transfer switch with 10 breakers for a day or so based on what reviewer says. So I’m still not excited about EVs in general, but the added bonuses and price point of this F-150 EV makes it at least worth a look. For me it has little to do directly with the EVs aspect and much more to do with what it can do.
  3. I think the fact that a given show would air regularly on a given night and time and people would work their day or evening around the broadcast slot somehow added to it. I know that was also a thing for sitcoms or some other tv broadcast, but that fact that it was radio somehow made it different. Probably had something to do with it becoming a dying art form when I was able to listen. Some degree of appreciation for it was a thing back then.
  4. I was there for a week back in February. After checking out the live music one night that they have every night at the Town Square, it seemed to me that it easier to get laid there then it was at the Fountain Casino in the 80’s. Not that I took part in what looked to be the chosen Sport of the evening... it was sort of like being in a nightmare where all my friend’s Mom’s were trying to hook up with me. So... probably not the STD mecca...but they do seem to play it fast and loose when the sun goes down and the bourbon is pouring. And the music was pretty good by the way. So was the craft beer bar.
  5. No R can win if mail-in is used again. Way too much fraud. If the election relies on actual Votes, and someone impressive is put up...that person has a shot. Support for Murphy is weak. He won in part because Guadino,..or whatever her name was.... was unlikable and generated zero excitement.
  6. Looks interesting. Although this may not be what that is...its giving me a craving for meatloaf with a cheesy tomato sauce on top. Like Pizza Meatloaf maybe....
  7. Yes.... used to be on AM radio.... my father had them on a lot, for some reason, even as a fairly young kid, I found them to be pretty cool. The story telling aspect of it was different than anything on the radio. And the fact that they were either thrillers or horror stories added a bit of coolness to them.
  8. You aren‘t wrong..... Here in NJ, this election will be decided by the process. If it is all Mail-In like the last one....the Rs have no shot. I don’t see Murphy voluntarily giving up the golden goose of mass mailing of mail-in ballots. Why would he????
  9. Found reload 115gr 9mm at Freedom Munitions for $225/500. Increments of 50 rounds. $0.4482/ round about 137,000 in stock. I’ve never had issues with their reloads. Crazy where these prices are now. Apparently my stash of 5.56 represents a nice down payment on a starter home... Just checked and Freedom Munitions also has new 9mm 124 gr for $0.486 per round. So $24.30 per box. 5300 left in stock. Mem Day sale.
  10. If they get away with all mail in ballots, they will cheat again just as they last November.
  11. Not to get political here. This is just an observation of the actually party breakdown in the Senate. The reality is that the republican party, particularly in the Senate, is divided. There are really three parties. The Democrats, the Republicans and a ReDemricans. That 3rd party being comprised of Collins, Romney, Murkowski, Sasse, Toomey and a few others whose names I can recall right now. McCain was among them. With this three party system in the Senate, where each generally stays unified, the Republicans haven’t has anything more than a super slim majority when there were 40 dems and Scott Brown won his seat, giving the Republicans and a Redemricans a combined 60 seats. The problem was that 3rd party, the Redemricans usually voted with the Dems.
  12. All that is true. I think for an R to win....it is more of the D blowing it. Murphy may be hated enough... but maybe not. I do think Rs are apathetic in NJ. I also think the Rs do not go after the black vote. They wouldn’t get a majority but they can get a decent amount. They just don’t try in NJ.
  13. I’m glad we are done with Drexel. Political theater indeed. Utter nonsense is another way to describe it. Schools should be forced to explain the logic that students must be vaccinated and the staff is not required to be vaccinated.
  14. I’d say do it. You are 23. You could also get supervisory or mgr jobs in retail that pay a little more than you are making now and only have to work 40 hours. Netting pretty close to where you are at now. Just as an example of alternative. The factory job may be more attractive. Jobs where you are dealing with retail customers can have its own issues. The change you may make seems like it will not be a financial risk. And it will give you your life back. Nothing more valuable than getting your life back. Missing time with your kids is something you can never get back. Keep that in mind. Edit: saw you are 33. But I maintain the same opinion. Good luck!!
  15. I recall reading a lot of Indians do not vote and those that do, lean heavy Dem. if thats true, Mr. Singh may move that needle. Also, Murphy has endeared almost no one. That pendulum could swing right if Murphy runs again. But NJ does suck. Do you recall when it was considered a heavy Independent state?
  16. IANAHVACG.... but this is the most likely issue. If you see ice building on the evaporator coil or the low pressure (cold side) line outside, that makes it more likely to be a refrigerant issue. But there are other issues, like with valves that can also be the issue. I end up dealing directly with a lot of hvac guys where I work and picked up some basic knowledge over the years. No mini splits but the systems have a whole lot in common. If it is low refrigerant, they should also locate the leak.
  17. Heard him today on Breitbart News Saturday. Seemed pretty decent as a candidate. Says he has been and is a big Trump supporter. The others seem like RINOs. We don’t need another Chris Christie.
  18. Its much more than a theory. And it Is intimidating the court. Search... 2020 Presidential Election supreme court. There was a particular reluctance to take any case or even hear the facts.
  19. Yes. They write laws with the wording... ”The Secretary shall ......[insert unconstitutional bureaucratic action here]” Mike Lee wrote a book about. “our Lost Constitution”. Senator Lee has lost his way to some extent, but he isn’t wrong.
  20. These people are no longer our government. We didn’t leave them. They left us.
  21. They won’t redeem themselves. They are afraid of Biden and the Dems packing the court. So they will go along with whatever they have to in order to demonstrate they will bend to the will of the legislative and executive branches. Then one could ask..why follow an unconstitutional executive order?
