  2. I wanted to share how I upgraded my lap belts to 3 point seat belts in case others were wondering. I purchased my seat belts from "Seat Belt Plus". I decided to go with the non retractable style as I was not sure if there would be fitment issues with the bench seat. Direct Link: https://www.seatbeltsplus.com/product/CH300.html First here is a picture of my truck. Its a 1969 s If your truck came with factory lap belts you will need to modify the pillar and install a support plate to allow usage of the 3 point seat belts. Here is what I ordered: First off I drilled a hole in the pillar to match the plate. Then I used some wire to thread the plate behind the pillar. Its an easy fit past the headliner. I then secured the plates with rivets Now your ready to start mounting your new belts... Using the provided hardware everything is simply bolt in. For the lap belts lower pillar mounting points I simply reused the same hardware. Mine were in decent shape. AND here is the end result Overall, I am pretty happy with the result. Decent price, good quality and generally easy install!!

  3. After leaving work permanently last March due to co-vid I started walking to fill the time and for the exercise. Every morning till just before Christmas it was 5k or 3 miles but starting December I upped it to just over 8k or over 5 miles every day. Once or twice a week I add an extra loop of 3, 4 or 5 extra k and often walk into town which is 10 k round trip (6 miles) Early on I saw the benefit of a walking stick for the unmaintained goat paths some of these trails are. There are bears and cougars though the latter is very rare to meet, I would like to be around to tell of it. I feel more comfortable with something with weight and pointy end in my hands. The first one was a boughten one my wife got but never uses. It was too light and frail. As there are plenty of trees around I cut one and took it home. Peeled it and carved some grips on it and it warped as it dried, made some mistakes and learned but by the fourth try had something I liked. When I stained our fence I stained my stick and it came out alright. This is a walking stick I made for a lady I meet infrequently while walking. She was using an old tree branch. I said I would put her name on it so she said I had to put mine on there somewhere so I gave the stick a name put hers on as the owner of the stick and made a little MIKE logo. Got a wood burning kit from Amazon ... This is my old (gen 4) walking stick and by the end of this month will have at least 1,000 miles on it. 150 a month! I stained it and with what I learned making sticks for others burned a spiral ivy vine around it... ..and gave it a name. Experimenting with a Middle Earth, Lord of the Rings script.. Here's another for another lady friend I used to work with. This is the first one made from cedar for it's lightness. She's elderly and 5'3'' so this should be a good fit. Has a double helix of ivy. This weekend I want to clear coat these last two walking sticks. My stain went on two months ago and was wearing thin so a protective clear coat might be what it needs. If it was for myself, good enough... is good enough, but making one for others I try different things. Decorating is getting better.

  4. Probably a repost, but fitting. All I hear are crickets from my left leaning friends & associates.

  5. I'm tired of being lied to. I'm tired of censorship in science to fit a political agenda. I'm tired of politicians claiming to follow science and then make policies that are all about control. I'm tired of the government thinking it knows how handle TO my health when it can't even slightly unfuck itself. I'm tired of other people telling me how to live my life and what I need to wear. AND I'm really fucking tired of our slow decline into communism and bullshit social score system. I will make my choices about my health and frankly I don't really give a fuck about yours or anyone else's health, figure your own shit out. MY LIBERTY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR FEAR.

  6. One of the biggest problems is that the left controls all of the major media, at least the low hanging fruit that most people consume. Not everyone has the luxury of listening to all five hours of Michael Berry, Armstrong and Getty, Joe Pags or the occasional Savage podcast. They'll consume whatever the local meat puppets, Clinton News Network or More Shitty Nonsense By Cunts trowels out. Or even worse, they'll get their "news" from that fugitive from evolution Stephen Colbert, a gurning cock-monkey pulling his meat before an audience of hooting, stomping troglodytes. If they would pick up the remote, page through a few submenus to Newsmax, they would be shocked, shocked I say, at what is really going on in the country.

  7. I took this shot in July, 2001 with no clue of what was to come a few months later. I can still remember hearing the news when I got in my car to go to work, they where talking about a building burning, so I got out of my car and look towards downtown, but nothing. Then I went back in the house and turned on the T.V. to see that it was New York that was being attacked. I was working for a company that did Trade Show exhibits, and hence the reason I was in New York in July of that year. After the second plane hit and we got the news about the other planes, that is when we knew the world was changed forever. Then suddenly it hit me, nothing was going to move, and we had people out in the field at shows. Then it was a mad scramble to get them home. One of our salesmen was in New Jersey when it happened and tried leaving, but no flights. And then he tried renting a car, but they where all out. The only thing they had was a van, so he grabbed it and then got up on the counter and yelled out that he was driving to San Diego, and if you where on the way, he would give you a ride. He quickly filled up the van and made a bunch of new friends. Last time I saw him, a few years ago, he said some of them where doing small get togethers to remember their journey home. My shipping and receiving agent lost his friend, Jason Dahl, pilot on Flight 93, who he had been talking to prior to this about their upcoming High School reunion May God Rest Their Souls

  9. Here's a walking cane I hope I won't need for a long time but when I do, no ones going to fuck with this old man. The anvil is made out of 1/8" plate so it's not as heavy as it looks, the ferrule on the bottom is a spare socket.

  10. Uh no, that is pretty much the same lefty shit, blame Trump when things go sideways. Good Luck with that. Biden's people fucked it up and he was kept in a closet somewhere while they fucked it up. Trump's negotiations where scrapped as they did not want anything that was touched by Trump. Trying to erase Trump's work is beginning to seriously backfire.

  12. The vaccinated are spreading the variants as this vaccine is pretty shitty and is what is referred to as "leaky" in other words it doesn't prevent you from getting sick it just has the potential to lessen the symptoms. All you have done with this shit vaccine is apply a selective pressure on the virus to evade the antibodies produced against the specific spike protein produced by the vaccine. Remember, the survival rate is still >99% for this damn thing and the government has gone off like it is the end of the world. But yes when 1/6 of cases are in the vaccinated 1. the vaccine fucking sucks, efficacy after a few months is as low as 43% for Pfizer against Delta (hence the boosters being talked about) to note; for approval a vaccine must be above 50% but no one cares anymore about the rules, 2. the vaccine has a death and complication rate of its own that is within a 1/5 to 1/10 of that of the virus itself which fucking sucks for the total population under about 60 or so and the death rate of Covid is mostly sick people while vaccine injuries are mostly healthy people. This is per Vaers reporting and the CDC (see my previous post) and that number is likely highly underreported. 3. 94% of those who died with Covid, once again from the CDC had on average 2.9 other comorbidities, so if you were already knocking on Death's door Covid just finished it off (or you know the numbers are somewhat bullshit, too many reports of dying from falling off a ladder or car accident being Covid). 4. The government keeps moving the goal posts and are outright lying about stuff. 5. The FDA approval process was a joke and didn't even meet the standards and the guy running it took money from Pfizer in 2018 and the former head works for Pfizer now. Statistically overall you have about the same chance as dying of Covid as you do of lightning strikes. Hell the total deaths from 2019 vs 2020 are damn near the same so there was not great "die off". You've been lied to by the same lying kid fuckers who are charge who now want to force you to put something in your body "for your own good". You want to do that yourself, then go ahead. I may not know what the exact truth is but I know that this shit does not add up and who would trust someone who wants to lie and control you with their health? https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/12/evidence-shows-total-deaths-2020-no-different-prior-years-open-economy-democrats/

  15. Today I wept. I wept for thousands of souls I never knew. 20 years. WTC towers 1 and 2. Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The Pentagon. Take a moment today to remember those who perished. Never forget. Weep for them with me.

  16. I live in Michigan outside Detroit, and closer to Lansing (liberal state capitol). All the falsely sincere news people this week were talking about how Michigan hospitals are "overwhelmed", but the Johns Hopkins numbers still show ICU space across the state. Not saying it might not be higher than normal, but not overwhelmed.

  17. If you were to tell your doctor that you think that you really are a horse and want to be treated as such, he and your family would insist that you see a psychiatrist and get counseling help. Your best friend gets a saddle and the doctor says WTF are you doing?? Don't re-enforce his delusion by putting a saddle on him and riding him around!!! Are you crazy??? But it would be perfectly OK if he were to think he was a woman????

  20. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/biden-disappointed-republican-governors-vaccine-mandate Pulled these two thoughts from reading this morning: The scariest part are the people who fully support what he said and can't grasp the logic. Protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated? There should be NO reason for that if the vaccine actually works. The people that called Trump a dictator are now cheering and celebrating as Biden rules by decree making him an actual dictator.

  21. This is literally what I'm using for my Religious Exemption as they are forcing the vax for my job. Seemed appropriate as there are some very disturbing parallels. Although I have drifted away from the more traditional aspects of the church with time (been a while since my last Eucharist). I'm personally not so sure on the whole "Good" side of things but I sure as Hell can identify the Evil side and there is some Evil shit going down. The best part is the more they push the more that reinforces my belief that this whole thing is bad news. Many of the places enforcing this are being really slimy about the whole thing. I've heard many people who submit Exemptions to other similar places (which they are calling Exceptions, which are distinct legally) get put on unpaid leave. Bunch of lawsuits over the whole thing coming down on a bunch of different fronts, 1a, 4a and even some 14th amendment aspects along with other more state level and Civil Rights act suits. Going to be interesting.

  23. There was a few outlets that pointed out that when he (Trump) came on camera the hew was turned up for Orange man. More than it should have been. Although the man used a self tanner to an excess the media did in fact do things to help it appear more orange to help guys like you develop a superficial opinion. Manipulation works. You're a prime example. The same people noticed the same treatment of Joe Rogan. If you need me to qualify. My brother in-law Mike still works for the DIA and has had multiple interactions with the "Orange Man" on the daily while Trump was in office. The over Orange was and still is media smear, and it works. Simple tactics to help feed someone's superficial dislike. My attorney Jacob Daniels is also a Trump staffer and has confirmed that the Cheeto isnt even as orange as the caricature that was put out to smear him. Do you have any in-person interaction to confirm or is TV and Media your source?

  27. Taking the nuts off the torsion adjusting bolts, after them not being touched for 50 years was taking forever. One third of a turn at a time. All the way till the end with both the adjusting and lock nut. So I Shit "welded" a cheap harbor freight 3/4 - 1/2" driver into a 1/2" drive socket. Now I've got a 3/4" square driver perfect for the torsion adjusting bolts. The second side took maybe 2 minutes to get all the way undone with the ol' impact.

  28. https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/1009243/Technical_Briefing_20.pdf I direct your attention to the RED arrows at the bottom of the image: "The UK government just reported the following data, tucked away in their report on variants of concern: Less than a third of delta variant deaths are in the unvaccinated. Let me say that another way - two-thirds of Delta deaths in the UK are in the jabbed. To be specific: From the 1st of February to the 2nd of August, the UK recorded 742 Delta deaths (yes, the dreaded Delta has not taken that much life). Out of the 742 deaths, 402 were fully vaccinated. 79 had received one shot. Only 253 were unvaccinated." "Again, 402 deaths out of 47 008 cases in vaccinated; 253 deaths out of 151 054 cases in unvaccinated. If you get covid having been vaccinated, according to this data, you are much more likely to die than if you were not vaccinated! Obviously some allowance must be made for more elderly people being vaccinated, but not enough to change the bottom line: this vaccine is not nearly as effective as advertised. And with all its unknowns, and a much higher adverse reporting number than all other vaccines combined, a complete recalibration of global policy is the only moral option. Countries around the world, as months pass since vaccinations, are experiencing a surge in vaccinated deaths and hospitalizations. 60% of hospitalizations in Israel are fully vaccinated patients. (Hence the mad rush for untested boosters.)" https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2021/08/grim-warning-israel-vaccination-blunts-does-not-defeat-delta Quoted text from here: https://chriswaldburger.substack.com/p/bombshell-uk-data-destroys-entire

  29. I am not cattle. Nor are others. The vaccines are to protect vulnerable people and not the whole populous. The goal posts has moved 20 fucken times since the start of this. Freedom to chose out weighs your fear of death.

  30. Mike, the best way to determine what to believe is what is getting fact checked and who is most loudly espousing dodgy-sounding bullshit. Assume the opposite is true and it will eventually prove out. Like all of the conspiracy theories; covid came from a lab in China, Jan 06 wasn't a planned insurrection, etc. The Babylon Bee recently announced that there is a shortage of conspiracy theories, as they all are coming true. Like all good satire, they have not only a grain of truth, but nearly always a pear of truth at the core. And Biden is the king of the reverse-Midas touch; everything that tater-headed coffin-dodger puts his filthy dick-skinners on turns into a massive pile of shit.
