  1. Dodge Ram recall

    Fiat Chrysler recalling nearly 500,000 Ram pickup trucks for fire risk Fiat Chrysler is recalling 494,000 Ram pickup trucks due to a possible fire risk. The medium and heavy-duty Ram trucks have a water pump that could overheat. Fiat Chrysler said it is not aware of any injuries related to the issue. Fiat Chrysler said Tuesday it is recalling 494,000 Ram pickup trucks, model years 2013-2017, saying they pose a fire risk. The medium and heavy-duty Ram trucks, models "2500" and "3500," have a water pump that could overheat and potentially start a fire. Fiat Chrysler said it is not aware of any injuries related to the issue, but has reports of a small number of fire-related incidents. The company will inspect and potentially replace the water pump. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/09/19/fiat-chrysler-recalling-nearly-500000-ram-pickup-trucks-for-fire-risk.html

    Mine are still in the "my feeder" mode. I put out a couple additional feeders so more of them could fill up.
  5. The HPA's next step, SHUSH.

    Heeere we go again. Lawmakers on Tuesday debated the merits of a Republican-backed bill that would make it easier for individuals to buy gun silencers. Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., introduced the measure in the Sportsmen’s Heritage and Recreational Enhancement Act, the Hill reported. The provision calls for a less extensive and instant background check. Duncan’s bill is reportedly dubbed the Hearing Protection Act. The debate was reportedly delayed after the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., in June in a park in Arlington, Va. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., reportedly said it seems that sportsmen “have to choose between damaging their hearing and being able to hunt, shoot, target practice.” Democrats said the bill is dangerous, and would make it more difficult to determine where shots are being fired in an active-shooter situation. “We should not make it easier for anyone to obtain these weapons of war,” Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., said, according to the report. David Chipman, a senior policy adviser of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a pro-gun control group, was invited to the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Federal Lands hearing, the Hill reported. Chipman said the bill “would make silencers more readily available to criminals because for the first time in 80 years private parties could sell these guns without background checks on the internet and in gun shows and this has never been the case before. The National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm supports the measures, saying suppressors are “harmless and very rarely used in crime” and that the joint bill would end the “cumbersome and lengthy application process.” A similar measure failed in 2015. But supporters are optimistic this time with President Donald Trump in office. The GOP lawmakers say the bill aims to “cut through the red tape” of owning a suppressor and, if passed, would remove the accessory from the scope of the National Firearms Act. They also say it would replace the “outdated” federal application process with the “instantaneous” National Instant Criminal Background Check. Critics point to a February 2013 situation in which fired Los Angeles police Officer Christopher Dorner killed four people in a series of attacks over 10 days that targeted law enforcement officials. They argue the fatal attacks might have been stopped earlier had Dorner not been using silencers. “There’s no evidence of a public health issue associated with hearing loss from gunfire,” Kristin Brown, of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, told the Los Angeles Times earlier this year. “There is evidence of a public health crisis from gun violence, and we think that’s where legislative efforts should be directed.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/09/13/republicans-push-gun-silencer-bill-democrats-fire-back.html
  6. Equifax Breach-must read

    I think that just changed. Equifax has removed a clause from the Terms of Use section of the website set up to help victims of the company’s data breach that previously barred victims from suing Equifax if they used the company’s services. http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/09/12/equifax-removes-clause-barring-data-breach-victims-from-suing-if-they-use-companys-help/
  7. Hurricane Jose

    I don't think I've ever seen a hurricane do a loop like this It's almost like it's in a holding pattern waiting for Irma to get out of the way.
  8. And now Tampa Bay has disappeared.
  9. If you're so smart?

    It's his. It was a birthday present (67 years old today)
  10. Today's Dummy......

    ....also known as me . I was at a pawn shop today and noticed they had a Norinco clone of the Winchester '97. I haven't touched one of those in over 50 years when I used my Dad's. I've had Model 12s, 1300s and a couple of Mossberg pumps and truly love pump shotguns so naturally, I had to handle it. As I racked it to open the chamber I realized that I had forgotten a lesson I learned 50 years ago, the slide on the top of the receiver that cocks the hammer moves to a position where your thumb is not supposed to be. I had to bite my lower lip to stifle the pain and looked around nonchalantly to make sure no one noticed what an idiot I was before returning it to the rack. At least there was no blood this time
  11. Shooting Irma... Really?

    Maybe a few hundred of these ?
  12. Let there be light

    It's finally happened, people are starting to see the light and realize that their college degrees aren't worth the debt According to the Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, only 49 percent of Americans now believe that a four-year degree will lead to a good job and higher lifetime earnings. An overwhelming 47 percent claimed that they don’t believe a four-year degree will increase job and earnings prospects. The findings reflect an increase in public skepticism of higher education from just four years ago and highlight a growing divide in opinion falling along gender, educational, regional and partisan lines. They also carry political implications for universities, already under public pressure to rein in their costs and adjust curricula after decades of sharp tuition increases. Americans are increasingly concerned about the rising costs of an education. Student debt totals have reached $1.3 trillion, and millions have fallen behind on student-loan payments. “I have friends from high school that are making half what I’m making, and they went and got a four-year degree or better, and they’re still $50-, $60-, $70,000 dollars in debt,” 32-year-old Jeff McKenna said, who passed on college in favor of trade school. He earns $50,000 a year as a mechanic. “There’s a huge need for skilled labor in his country.” Universities around the country have been forced to become aware of the shift in public attitude towards the product they are offering. “We’re aware of the various polls that show this decline in confidence. It’s happening across a wide variety of institutions,” said Heather Swain, Vice President for Communications and Brand Strategy at Michigan State. “One of the things we’re doing is to try and make sure people understand the value of the university in different ways.” University of Florida Provost Joseph Glover says that the shift in public confidence is “somewhat startling.” He said, “I think this is happening because there is a disconnect between the group of Americans who go to university and acquire an appreciation of life-long learning and another group people who never get access and never really understand the benefits a university brings to society at large.” Breitbart News previously reported that schools such as the University of Missouri and Evergreen State College have faced significant enrollment issues after failing to uphold principles of free expression. http://www.breitbart.com/tech/2017/09/08/wsj-poll-americans-losing-faith-in-college-degrees/
  13. Yep, that will solve all his problems
  14. We've all heard of the fights over bottled water, gasoline and other things. Here's something that brightened my day and re-confirmed my faith in humanity. Like many other Floridians bracing for Hurricane Irma’s arrival, Sanford resident Pam Brekke spent days racing from store to store for supplies. She was hunting for a generator, waiting for empty shelves to be restocked -- and her search was growing desperate. Finding one before Irma makes landfall wasn’t just to make herself more comfortable -- it was a matter of life and death. “My father’s on oxygen, and I’m worried about this storm," Brekke tearfully told WFTV. Brekke drove 30 miles Thursday morning to a Lowe’s in Orlando that got a surprise shipment of 200 generators. She was next in line to purchase one when she saw the final unit given to the customer ahead of her. If there were one more generator, it would have been hers. Brekke broke down, brought to tears by the thought of her father losing oxygen if the power cut out. But then, she was graced with a random act of kindness and humanity amid the chaos: The customer ahead of her, Ramon Santiago, approached and insisted she take his generator -- the last one in stock -- without knowing why she was crying. Brekke and Santiago embraced as a reporter caught the exchange on camera and posted it to Facebook. She thanked him for his kindness during her difficult time. “Everything is okay,” he told her before returning to his shopping. “I’m very overwhelmed by that man,” Brekke said, fighting back more tears. “God will bless that man." http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/08/as-hurricane-irma-nears-lowe-s-customer-in-florida-offers-last-generator-to-stranger-in-need.html
  15. I think he should keep moving the target to the left until he catches up with it
