    I want to know why you Democrats are such cowards that you have not yet launched another civil war to free America of the totalitarian nightmare of President Donald J. Trump. I mean, if he’s truly Hitler 2: Electric Boogeyman, then isn’t it your sacred duty to remove this cancer on our body politic with arms if necessary? Look, I get that you Dems have a track record on insurrections designed to oppress the rights of Americans you feel superior to that is pretty poor (0-1) but come on, heroes of democracy, make your move! Just sitting here in the midst of this crisis you keep whining about makes you look like sissies or lying piles of talking garbage. Actually, both. Your hero, Jerry Nadler, while on parole from the chocolate factory, told the Senate this about our elected president: "Only his will goes. He is a dictator. This must not stand and that is another reason he must be removed from office by any means necessary ." A dictator? Hey, that’s bad, right? I mean, unless the dictator is a leftist – wasn’t Castro dreamy? But since this is a threat to our democracy, because Trump is a non-leftist dictator, aren’t you guys morally obligated to take action and remove him? It’s obvious that those treacherous treason-loving traitors of treachery, the Republican senators, won’t toss the guy who did nothing wrong out of office so you can start working on throwing Mike Pence out of office, likely for the high crime and misdemeanor of trying to make America into The Handmaid’s Tale? You must act now! Go home to your mom’s basements, dorms, tacky urban apartments and billionaire mansions and get your guns and… Oh, right. Awkward! You are against "scary" guns. . . By the way, if Trump is a dictator, why do you want to disarm the American people so the only one with guns is…Dictator Trump? Whatever, let’s see if you can focus. Okay, maybe you don’t have any guns like real men. Let’s assume you can find some guns. Now you need to water the kale bush of liberty with the blood of patriots. Okay, you’ll probably want to find another word than “patriots” since the term “patriots” upsets you – but because Trump is a “dictator,” we’re obviously in an extreme situation that calls for extreme measures. It’s totally time to figuratively fire on Ft. Sumter again, Democrats. Maybe this time it will work out better for you. Jerry Nadler will lead his unit, the 5’1 Oompa Loompa Brigade, known as “Wonka’s Own,” against the perilous peril of a president who got elected without the liberal elite’s permission. Can’t you just see him standing there before his men, women, and non-binary others, a midget Mussolini, his belt cinched tightly around his clavicle so that no matter where he wears his pistol it’s always in a shoulder holster? Then there’s the googly-eyed Audie Murphy of the Intelligence Committee, Generalissimo Adam Schiff, ready to lead the dreaded “Fighting Pencilnecks” of the 69th Brigade into battle uttering their unit motto “Ed Buck who?” Trump’s a dictator, so of course, Schiff will fight because if America falls under the rule of a dictator he has to be removed, right? Others would join the fight too. Ted Lieu can be your JAG. Perhaps Rashida Talib could help lead the kind of battlefield victories her pals the Palestinian terrorists are known for. And Ilhan Omar, who still has a beef with the Army for running up the score against the dirtbag murderers in Mogadishu, would no doubt resist alongside her brothers/husbands-in-arms. Maybe “That’s Lieutenant Colonel to You!” Vindman could finally get a battalion command. Colin Kapernick could try out for a unit, and when no one calls him he can tell you how you are all racists! Of course, cruise director Cap’n Bill Kristol and his crew of Fredocon swabbies can handle naval operations. Ahoy! And even Eric Swalwell can contribute despite his well-known aversion to the kind of weapons that men use in the defense of freedom. He can drop his shorts be in charge of chemical weapons and poison gas. Remember, removing President Trump is a sacred, somber, prayerful moral obligation because he’s a “dictator.” Words actually mean something. “Dictator” means something, and a lot of Americans have had experience with real ones either before moving here or while deployed. So, the next time you pampered wusses want to spew your MSNBC / CNN-approved rhetoric, save it. Pick up a weapon or shut the hell up.

    Seen a lot of "well off" people with little respect or any manners. The general attitude for clearing their trash is "that's what the help is paid for" or as my "entitled liberal daughter in law" stated "I don't do manual labor like clearing the table off". So last time they came over when Gail was alive she insisted that we don't give her any dishes or utensils. . . just a few wet naps. Wife had a bit of a sarcastic streak worse than mine.

    Dynamatting well under way. Ordered 2 new airseats and made up new floor brackets for them. Got some pleated black vinyl material coming for back of cab, door panels and firewall. Going to get a new floormat too, might as well at this point.. Amazing how this stuff can snowball, I really just wanted to get the windshield wipers working again.

    Had to get a little creative with my “coach work”. The lower cab frame I had fabricated was made out of three pieces and welded together. The issue with it was it lacked the bow the original had. The upper two frames have it. The bows help keep the sheet metal taught when assembled. Made a template off the upper bows and then made a tapered shim out of mahogany and bonded it to the lower frame. Issue solved!

    Umm..........what ????? China as of January 2020 has US$3.115 trillion* in foreign exchange reserves. Why would we give another country free money........that has more money than our deficit-ridden country has????? The way tax-payer money is senselessly handed out overseas by the pallet load should be a crime. * https://www.reuters.com/article/china-economy-forex-reserves/chinas-jan-forex-reserves-rise-to-3-115-trillion-idUSAZN02BXSZ

    I never want to get involved in politics but it sickens me to watch the democrats. The day Pelosi is out of office it will be a great step forward for Americans. the aholes that wasted all our money going after trump should have to pay it all back out of their own pocket. I hope Trump turns on shiff and rest of them and sticks it up all their asses. Trump for another 4 years I need more money in my retirement account.

    Think about something, we have a president that the Democrats are trying to impeach for doing what he said he would do if elected, clean out the swamp and find the crooks, so he asks the Ukraine President to look into Hunter Biden a admitted drug addict and how he landed a $50,000 dollar a MONTH job, not 50k a year but 50k a MONTH and he was the Vice Presidents son and we are to really believe this is all above board, you would have to be the most stupid person on earth to believe that Hunter gets 50k a month on his own merits ??? is that how stupid the average democrat voter is ???? they are trying impeach the president for doing exactly what he said he would do, Joe Biden is a crook, has always been a crook and will die a disgraced crook. Now do we really think the Obama was not aware of what was going on ??? so this smuck is up to his neck in this too but hey don't blame him for anything because the blacks will come unhinged and riot if we convicted him for his crimes, this country was built by people who worked hard and will be destroyed by people that think hard work is a bad thing. We need to support Trump and make sure he is reelected and then hope that really goes for the jugular of the liberal crooks.

    https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/mcall/obituary.aspx?n=sandra-h-yardumian&pid=195034901 For you guys not on the Fazebooks, my mom passed away Saturday 1/11/2020 after a brief illness that was attributed to the dimentia she had been suffering from for the past 4-6 years (maybe longer.) Mom and Dad met on a blind date while in the US Navy. He was aboard the USS Seneca ATF91 and she was a Hospital Corpsman at the Philadelphia Naval Hospital. Dad's ship was a 205' fleet oceangoing tug home ported in Little Creek but they tied up at Pier 3 at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard often. A buddy of his hooked them up. Mom grew up in Walnutport Pa and her family didn't have two nickels to scratch together. She knew that enlisting was the only way she could get out of dodge and to obtain an education. She enlisted in Allentown Pa. When she went to see the detailer, he asked her where she wanted to go- she said "Germany, Japan, Italy..Someplace foreign and exotic overseas....." She got orders for foreign exotic South Philadelphia and boy was she PISSED at the Navy and for the rest of her life she cussed them like a sailor....But she did meet Dad so that was good or I guess I wouldn't be writing this. With the help of a friend, a flag was hoisted yesterday over the USNS COMFORT, one of the Navy's two hospital ships. The flag is enroute to me as we speak by fedex and should be delivered tomorrow for her funeral on Saturday. If anyone can ever choose to learn the way a close relative dies, pick the sudden, unexpected phone call advising "So and So had a heart attack and has passed away" because this watching someone die for three weeks sucks....I don't know how people can do it for months or a year or more.

    So work finally slowed down enough to do a little work on my R model. Previous owner had disconnected the heater core at some time and the windshield wipers were not working. I found an actual radiator shop (hard to find these days) that recored the heater core for me. I had bought a new wiper pivot assembly from Watts about a year and half ago so I put it in and found that the pins for the wiper transmission arms were spaced 1/4" further apart than the original ones so that wouldn't work. The original wasn't actually that worn, the wiper motor was a mess though. I called Rome truck parts and they had a rebuild kit for $22 so I figured I didn't have much to lose trying to rebuild it myself. The inside of the motor was well gunked up with rust oil and crap but cleaned up well. After putting the internal cam valve in wrong about 3-4 times I got it working. Put it back on truck and it works like newish. Going to do the heater box over and repaint the interior next. I looked everywhere for a rattle can that would come close to the green interior color, found a paint code on another thread that NAPA mixed up for me yesterday in a spray can ($24!) and it was pretty close. This morning a friend stopped by and said that the original color looked like Detroit Alpine Green. I had a can of can of engine paint in the cabinet and son of a bitch it's a perfect match. I learn something new every day which means I have to forget something else to make room in my limited brain.. Hoping to get a new paint job and new air seat in her by May. The bright green paint on the heater cover was a reject and had to remove it.

    Best SOTU ever and your right Pelosi showed what real POS she is, I can't believe that any Democrat can say they are happy with their party, corrupt dishonest and disdain for America that is the Democrat platform and I dare any democrat to debate me, show me your support for the American way of life, Democrats want open borders, what do think would happen if all the Mexicans and people from Central America just showed up, how do you condone a abortion up to the day of birth, ever seen a calf cut out of a cow, pretty disgusting, but that is what they think is right, reach in with a with a razor blade and hack it up because mommy decided while high on crack you need to go, Democrats have some reps in congress with a rag on their head that come from countries that abuse women and it's Ok but they talk about women's rights ???? these same people make jokes about marrying your brother if from Alabama, unless your Democrat from another country trying to cheat and lie for your brother, then it is OK ,Biden is a liar and dishonest, his son got 50k a month just so some bad actors could have a direct link to the Vice President of USA and that is not problem with the Democrat voter, really sick demented behavior on the part of the Democrat voter. All the men and women who gave their lives in all the wars would be disappointed to see the great sacrifice wasted by the now so enlightened Democrat voter, disgusting and shameful. If you don't like America don't bother to vote just pack your crap and go someplace else your not welcome anyway.

    I used some welting on the B75 that came from a friend who plays with old Jeeps and it seems good. The price was reasonable. I have also used the rubber product from Resto Specialties on a different truck and it seems good also but sometimes can be "sticky" and grip the hood pretty good. Ever so often I will wax the inside of the hood to cut down on the grip factor. Or have the assistant handle it....

    I can't say whether the particular one pictured was put together by someone or not. It is a viable setup though. If you wanted an L tractor with an integral sleeper, Mack would sell you one. They sold many of them. Usually see them with a soft nose versus the hard nose radiator show above. Soft nose LJT sleeper. Picture is not the best. Taken in 2006.

    I knew one clever guy who had a neighbor who liked drifting a pickup truck through the guys yard when it snowed. Atleast once a week during the winter he said he’d find his mailbox laying done with big lines leading through his lawn, over his mailbox, and to the neighbors pickup. Finally the second year, the neighbor left on vacation after hitting the dudes mailbox again, so the guy dug a small hole about 8ft deep, stuck an old rail the local rail line had thrown to the side and cemented it into the hole. Then on top of the rail he built a box with some scrap 1/2” thick steel he had lying around and welded everything together. Then he built up some wood around it all and made it look really nice. Neighbor came home from vacation at about 2 in the morning and tried his same tactic to get into his driveway. Neighbor woke up the whole neighborhood totaling his truck on that mailbox, then tried to sue the guy for the damage to the truck. The guy got that thrown out quickly and countered for the cost of the mailboxes, which he won. Neighbor got thrown out of his house by his family...

    Back at it after a busy season with the new job and a friend's project the consumed a lot of time. But, I haven't quit and jumped back in this week getting organized again. This doesn't look like much , but it's the first repaired panel permanently re-attached. The cab needs to go over on it's back one more time for a bunch small things to be completed and undercoating. I'm very optimistic for having the cab ready for paint come this spring and my motivation is increasing about it>

    Postal regulations mandate the boxes be on a breakaway mounting. That same scenario has played out here also with a steel pipe cemented into the ground as a mount anchor and it didn't prevail in the suit that was filed. That one however involved injuries to the vehicle occupants. That being said, I know a guy out west of town where his mailbox is mounted on a 4X4 timber and not 18" from the mailbox is his newspaper box securely mounted to a locomotive crankshaft that is bolted to a cement slab.

    Some fine Virginian threw a bag of the Christmas debris in the end of my drive way, un sealed so much came out. Found their address in the mail that they added to the mix. Added some seasoned Basset Hound poo, packed it in a box, wrapped it up nice and festive, put it in a second box and sent it UPS to them. I feel that was an appropriate award for the manners and respect for the area they showed.
