    Russiagate is this generation's WMD

    There was never any collusion. Never any crime to justify the investigation. Anyone capable of free thought knew this. But a far too large number of people willfully bought into the lies; willfully allowed themselves to be gaslit. The ever propagandizing national media needed to extend the...

    The End Of Atheism

    The End Of Atheism If you are over the age of 40, perhaps a bit older, you have lived long enough to see a great fad get going, peak and then fade away completely. Lots of fads run their course in a few months, obviously, but social movements tend to build slowly and then stick around for a...

    Squeaking Driver Door 2004 TC

    Title says it all. The door squeaks when I open and close. Door latches fine. Just squeaks. Tried WD-40, which lessened the squeak for a bit. But it returned. Any more permanent solution? Replace the pin in the hinge (if so, how?)? Replace the hinge all together?

    Reality

    Excerpt from here: People, it appears, mostly think Reality is a human creation. By people, I mean leftists. Although many conservatives subscribe to the same very muddy, shallow thinking.

    These two charts show just how phony Obama’s ‘Buffett Rule’ really is

    These two charts show just how phony Obama’s ‘Buffett Rule’ really is By James Pethokoukis President Obama’s Buffett Rule is an almost perfect example of a) a solution in search of a problem, and b) politics masquerading as policy. A great pair of graphics from the Council on Foreign...

    So, got done replacing the blower motor control unit under the dash this evening, reconnect the battery and turn the car on to confirm the unit is working.

    Blower motor not working...

    As the title says, the blower motor in my 1996 Mark is not working. I put 12 volts directly to it and it started right up. It is also not the typical wire harness issues (I have had that issue before and fixed it by lengthening the wiring harness; wiggling the harness does nothing). Any idea...
