US Politics Cafe? What does that mean? Well, I email the GM Mod and asked if we could continue to have a place where we could discuss, amongst ourselves, the problems that crop up time to time here on the US Politics Forum. The previous post that was locked yesterday had sort of turned into this. And as a place where we could converse with each other without the pretense of hard left or hard right positions interfering with our communication and the good friends we have developed on both sides of the fence.

The GM thought this might be a good idea and approved it today.

So here we go. We have a place to try to work out angst, or just visit amongst ourselves and JOKE around with friends. The Cafe' is now open for us. We just need to keep everything here civil. Can I set your drinks up for you, Buddy? What will you have? Cheers!

Can we know get past this Holiday? Are we enjoying leftovers? Can we move this morning? Ahh...yes, the day after. Not many going to battle the sales lines?

Have a great day whatever you decide to do.

Me? I am going to work. I had to go into the office for a short while yesterday for a client to have information to present to the bank. Clients always expect last minute miracles. And I let them get by with that, of course. Much moaning about it however and I do charge for that! :-)

Got your bird going, yet? We cooked it last night as it will just fall apart if you pull it out of the oven or whatever and try to slice it hot.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Enjoy your family today. Whether you want to or not!

Any videos yet btc1?
You said: " I took the opportunity to secure proof as much as I have, and will continue to do on this one just so you will realize I am not. How will you save face when I do, because it is coming. I guess I need to go to CNN and Fox to source out that video, that, Marty and I know we saw about Michael Brown with his hands up getting shot by Darren Wilson. I am not lying, eventually I will be able to prove that too!"

How's that coming? The only face that needs saving is yours.
A conservative democrat would have have admitted he lied by now.
But a dishonest liberal democrat?
Not so much. Can't ever admit defeat to a conservative. Especially in front of your pals. I wonder how they feel about you lying to them all of these years about just "claiming" to be a liberal?
Ignoring it only proves even more what a dishonest poster you are.

"You do realize, theTower, there are reasons for the protests, right?"

I know it isn't your missing video of Brown being shot with his hands up.
How's that search coming?
I do realize that you don't wish to talk about your dishonesty anymore.
Just as someone told me. You will try to change the subject.
You are so predictable.
I would be willing to move on. Just admit what you have done.

You do realize, theTower, there are reasons for the protests, right? The actions and the way the presentations of the prosecutor are suspect by many. That is a subject for another thread.

btc1, I guess the grand jury never saw your Michael Brown video.

Don't worry about me, you better get that video to Ferguson!

ROTFLOL....
There never was a video. You made it up. Just like the video of the chair being thrown at Hall. As always, you lied. You are dishonest.

btc1: "I will find it sometime this weekend."

Weekends over. You got bupkis. You can't prove what didn't happen btc1 why did you even claim that you could?

Wow! Strong winds here today! They tore up Jack and did not help Jill, either. The electric was out for 5 miles on one major corridor where my tax office is located, for about 5 hours due to trees down on transformers. Roofs blown off but, not as bad as tornadoes.

jay, just hush and enjoy... You do not even have to tell us...'-)

Morning all...

AC, I've actually never been to Fred Howard Beach. Never would have thought it was as nice as all the choices on the open Gulf. FHB is actually on the Intracoastal Waterway. My take is the water has to be cleaner out on the barrier islands. And isn't there a fee at FHB? With so many free beaches to choose from on the open water I don't know if I will ever pay to go to an inland one. What do you find appealing about it? Of course you do have to have the inside knowledge to know where to park and be willing to walk a few blocks to skip the parking fees at most beaches. ( but that won't work at FHB ) The power of local knowledge...

No, no AC. It was next to the battery under the rear seat. The area, for some reason had moisture in it during the period it sat outside my shop this summer. I still do not know how that happened, except the drivers window was down just about an eight of an inch and I guess the wind and rain storms did the deed. The '92 300CE had water in the back floorboard too, but all was sealed on it. Anyway, it corroded and the short happened. He had the back seat out as he anticipated a problem there. I did not know that is where the control unit was as it was covered with an insulation pad or I would have saved the one from the parts car we just crushed! LOL!

I, a few years back, had a 1998 Caddy Concours and found out about body computers and resetting them from that one. Simple reset with the neg. cable disconnected. Yep, moisture is the worst for computers. I have had to replace a couple of ECUs on Jeeps as the were not protected properly. I now, if I have one "accesorize" with a rubber cover that I can vent. Now back to the US Politics/Auto Cafe'. We are here to help. :-)

Funny story. My helper has been using the '92. He complained about it hesitating and running bad. I thought it was a relay I had replaced that had gone bad again. I drove and was sure that was it. He told me this morning it cleared up when he put premium instead of mid-grade in it. I can get by with that every other tank full in the 320, but not that high compression engine in the '92.
