  2. To give a little clarity on the port fiasco, at least in California. Don’t believe the news! They manipulate info more often, and very little of the news is truthful these days. Here is pertinent info I copied off a page I follow. It was from a commenter. “The NEWS says the California port situation is caused by a driver shortage. Not so fast: It is in part caused by a California Truck Ban which says all trucks must be 2011 or newer and a law called AB 5 which prohibits Owner Operators. Traditionally the ports have been served by Owner Operators (non union). California has now banned Owner Operators. Long term, truckers in California are not investing in new trucks because California has a law that makes them illegal in 2035. The requirement is to purchase electric trucks which do not exist. And in the words of Paul Harvey, “Now you know the rest of the story” https://www.shrm.org/resourcesandtools/legal-and-compliance/state-and-local-updates/pages/ruling-threatens-independent-trucker-business-model-in-calif.aspx?fbclid=IwAR1btKmGWXKVoZrQb6x0kVpNrt5jdR8s8sktbeFoxVgIQd216k1s5bqSd04

  3. I'm already crazy. I give a fuck because I'm being fired for not taking this shot. As you can imagine this pisses me off something fierce, my fucking employer does not own MY BODY. Forcing medical procedures on healthy people to keep their job is fucking immoral as all shit, especially when it has a chance of DEATH. So yeah, I get fucking pissy when the fucking assholes in power consider me a fucking slave that they can order to me to put something into my body or get fired, that I don't want, I find ethically fucked, and that violates my religious beliefs. IT IS WRONG AND IT IS EVIL. And all that it takes for EVIL to succeed is for GOOD men to do nothing.

  4. You have every right to get it if you think it is the right choice for YOU. Having that decision taken away from you by mandate or risk of losing your job is what is NOT right. Also, last I checked you can take hearing protection off when you get home. It is not a PERMANENT MODIFICATION to your body demanded by your employer. Most employers have no loyalty to their employees but think it is perfectly acceptable to force them to undergo a medical procedure that has a RISK OF DEATH. Let's all crunch the numbers now. We will use CDC accepted numbers even if they are likely bullshit or under reported. # of vaxxed Americans= 209,701,005 # of vax deaths reported (VAERS) what CDC uses= 16,310 # of vax permanent disabilities (VAERS)= 23,712 # of vax life threatening events = 17,618 # of vax hospitilizations = 75,605 So we can then divide the adverse event/number of total vaxxed Americans and get your chance of something bad happening. Chance of death 16,310/209,701,005 = 1 in 12857. So if you mandate the vax for a company of 13,000 people you will kill 1 with the mandate. Chance of permanent disability 23713/209,701,005 =1 in 8843. So for that same company of 13,000 people you have now maimed at least 1 and almost 2 people. Chance of life threatening event= 17618/209,701,005 =1 in 11902. Another person has had a life threatening event, or could be the same person. Chance of them being hospitalized= 75605/209,701,005= 1 in 2773. So 4.6 or call it 4 to 5 people you've sent to the hospital. IT IS NOT ETHICAL TO KILL 1 RANDOM PERSON IN 13000 TO POTENTIALLY PREVENT OTHER PEOPLE FROM DYING. The overall death rate from COVID is 185 per 100,000 people, so scaling to 13,000 people it is 24 people from 13,000. So for the vaccine mandate you need to kill 1 person for every 24 you could potentially save and let me remind you the vaccine does not prevent 1. death from covid, 2. catching covid, spreading covid. KILLING 1 PERSON TO POTENTIALLY SAVE 24 IS NOT ETHICAL. BIDEN'S vax mandate through OHSA is expected to force 80,000,000 people to get the vax. It will statistically kill 6,222 people who would otherwise not die. HIS ACTIONS WILL KILL 6000 people. That is literally twice what died on 911 and we went to war over that. THAT IS EVIL. NOTE: WE know these numbers of adverse events are highly under reported by likely a factor higher than 10. If you give people a choice and tell them the risks that is fine but as soon as you force it you are responsible for killing or hurting those people. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html

  8. Same topic. No hypocrisy. Not sure how I could write that any clearer? How about the government just let's people decide. I don't have political affiliation nor preferences. If you choose one side or another and think it actually makes a difference then that's great news for you, in my country you are voting for either wing of the same corporate controlled bird. There is absolutely no situation that any form of government can't make worse. This planet can attest to this.

  9. I got my third Covid shot a few weeks ago. Also got a shingles and a flu shot over the last two weeks. With that said, I am pro choice. Whatever works for you is the right choice. I look out for me, not the Government...

  10. Took the Z to its first ever couple of meets/shows today (probably one of the last times this year stuff was running). Car got a lot of interest which was cool, spent a lot of time chatting to people about it. She's still working perfectly mechanically, only issue I had was the wipers deciding not to work while going down the freeway and sudden rain started, which was an interesting experience. Had my head out the window to be able to see lol. That'll be first on the priority list to fix, I'm not likely to drive this in the rain much but I want to make sure I can safely do so if desired/needed. Overall, put 150+ km on the car without a hitch and had a great time!

  11. Well good luck with the current crowd out there. I don't have kids and I think you don't but I grew up with the belt, yardstick and wooden spoon if I out of line. Worked well. Never been arrested, no bastards around, make a good professional living, been happily married for 15 years, treat the wife well. All is good thanks to the ass whippings when they were called for but no extras. Thanks to my folks.

  12. A friend of mine in college hung himself in his closet. Could have stood up at anytime. 20yrs old, stood guard at his door until the police arrived. 30 years ago but remember it like yesterday. Seared into me about mental health issues ain't no joke! Want to make fun of depression? Go fuck yourselves!

  13. Well, she's at the garage waiting to get the toe set and a safety inspection done 🙂 . I need to raise the rear 10-15mm as it was rubbing under right turns, but no other issues to report.

  17. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with the tax rates, but you are oversimplifying and being disingenuous with this type of post. The entirety of income is not taxed at the top marginal tax rate, only a portion (above X amount is). To say someone is paying 90% of their income is false. I don't know what any of you guys are doing financially...I assume most people on ratsun fall somewhere into the lower to mid middle class range of income earners. Right now I guess I'd be at the lower end and I pay next to nothing in effective tax rates (even was negative last year). I can't complain, not sure why anyone else would either, aside from seeing the gross waste and misappropriation of the funds govt does receive.

  20. I would rather have natural immunity myself but was it worth the risk ? would it have been worth the suffering of an extreme case of Covid ? I can't really say for certain.What i do know is those young healthy coworkers of mine that got sick were pretty messed up.I'm over twice their age and not as healthy.I wasn't going to chance it.

  23. Jeff beat me to it! That never happens (well, maybe to the finish line, but not to posting on HIS website) As he mentioned. We went down early Friday morning to participate in the Turn 2 track day. You don't need a race car to do this ladies and gentlemen. Turn 2's webiste is here: http://www.turn2lapping.com/ They are hosting dozens of track days at The Ridge next year. Go drive in one! If you've never done it before, go to one of their classroom sessions. Most tracks have opportunities like this. Pacific Raceways has a permanent school on site for instance. Go drive your car fast on a racetrack. You will be glad you did! Anyway, it was unexpectedly wet Friday morning but we didn't care, we just wanted to drive! (And make sure our fuel starvation problem was gone) I'm happy to say we made it through the day with no issues. So happy to have that behind us - and ready for the race ahead!!! Here is Jeff taking to the track in one of the later dry sessions https://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2021_10/1805743328_09102021theridge(1).MOV.edc3aba3258655cbc20ea26a401836a5.MOV As a bonus, one of our customers (Jeff and I work for www.electroimpact.com) is Boeing. When we were registering in the morning I recognized one of the guys in line as one of the Boeing engineers we work with in Renton. He was there with his BMW M3. After a couple runs in the wet he was going to call it a day but we convinced him to hang out with us for a while and wait it out. He did, and ran the last session. Not only that, he offered my wife Brenda the passenger seat! She was stoked!!!! Doesn't look like much but the BMW was hitting 130mph at the end of the straight https://datsun510.com/uploads/monthly_2021_10/1607094845_09102021theridge(2).MOV.04601eec1e4f75d418903dc03bf5ceef.MOV We barely hit 110 in the 510. : )

  24. Me too. Spare the rod, spoil the child. Only once was the whipping I got severe, but I earned every lash that day. The majority were more like love taps, guiding me when I stumbled and made bad choices. I still made a couple of poor decisions as an adult, , but again, the consequences helped make me a better member of society.

  26. Thanks! Your car was rather rough too, props for saving it. I am really glad to be done with the rust repair now I must admit haha. --------------------------------------- On the final stretch now. New wiper blades, had to get a bit creative with the mounting situation as I couldn't find anything that had an adapter to the bayonet-style arms or the plastic bit that was still on them but I made it work lol: hatch trim panel on too after it got some paint: And got the brakes fully bled and working great!. There were a couple leaks I had to deal with (thankfully solved by cranking the heck out of the fittings to make them seat nicely), but overall it went pretty smoothly. Had bought a cheap vacuum pump recently, and used that to get fluid to all 4 corners without having to get someone to pump forever given that the lines were completely empty. Worked a treat, would highly recommend. Got fluid to all 4 corners, then bled the master (thanks Wilwood for including bleeder screws on the MC itself, made it way easier than bench-bleeding), then back to the wheels. Did the final bleed conventionally with the help of a family member although honestly the vacuum bleeder did such a good job that there wasn't any more air coming out I could see. So yeah, it runs, drives, stops, and the clutch works now! Tomorrow I'll try to get the driver's door all assembled, and whatever other misc. I may need to do, then if time allows it'll go off to get a safety inspection done on tuesday. Got the headlights aligned tonight after dusk too, then drove the car into the garage under its own power which was a nice feeling.

  28. There would be, or will be no mass rising up, the vast majority of people in those bigger cities want this kind of government control, they think it is controlling all the bad guys, (think my comrade from earlier on in this thread) their reasoning seems to never make the logical step to think that perhaps this kind of force will be used on themselves on the day the government considers them to now be the bad guys. Think of the ratios of people in California, Australia has been essentially turned into that kind of thinking. The number of people in the 5 major cities out number everyone else by huge margin. We are fucked.... I would peel out but there is no where to go and no way out anyway. I am going to be an absolute cunt while waiting in the breadline! "How good is this hey? I really love the way the government looks after us.. hey? Come on people, cheer up! We are all in this together! Thank goodness we are protected from that man made virus, made by the same people who supplied the vaccines, I mean how lucky are we?"
