  1. First, Ellen/Elliot can come out as a turnip, for all I care. (i thought she was excellent "Hard Candy"). But, I must be missing the point, Ellen/Elliot came out as a lesbian, in 2014. So, what is this big emotion confession? She was attracted to girls. because she was a lesbian, and now she is attracted to girls, because she claims to be a he. I am happy to welcome Elliot to the white male who likes girls team; I am sure he would be an outstanding wing man.
  2. There are firearms designed for killing animals, even subsets designed for killing specific animals; the majority of these weapons are overkill for defense of self or others. It is not that such weapons would be ineffective, it is that there are better suited firearms for killing people. I understand Cardinal’s position and let my CC expire decades ago, but now older and far from fighting shape, I am thankful the option is available. (Although I keep putting off applying) It is a good that many, even most, have not witnessed the evil of man, but that is not evidence, it no longer exists. The expression that is overused, because of its veracity, “It is good to have a gun and not need then need a gun and not have it.” The police are a reactionary force, that is mostly ineffective and recent events (BLM riots) have reconfirmed this fact. Crime is on the rise and it will quadruple with Biden’s immigration plan. This is not anti-immigration, it is realizing the statistical facts that those with lower income and those who are disenfranchised (refuse to assimilate) are more likely to engage in criminal enterprise. Another part of age, for most, is realizing the blessing of family and the obligations it brings. Even if I could rationalize not carrying for my defense, I have a duty to keep my family safe.
  3. Aside from this information in italic, everything in this post was copied directly from Joe Biden's website. I will forgo analysis, since I already posted, regarding the practical ramifications of Biden's gun agenda. It is difficult to refrain from commentary, as this exemplifies political subterfuge; none of the presented "loop holes" are loop holes. Disagreement with a law, is not evidence that it is, or ever was a loop hole.Finally, the background check and stamp issued by the National Firearms Act is $200 per weapon (soon to be $500) Ban the manufacture and sale of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. Biden will also use his executive authority to ban the importation of assault weapons. Regulate possession of existing assault weapons under the National Firearms Act. Currently, the National Firearms Act requires individuals possessing machine-guns, silencers, and short-barreled rifles to undergo a background check and register those weapons with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). Buy back the assault weapons and high-capacity magazines already in our communities. …(I)dividuals who now possess assault weapons or high-capacity magazines two options: sell the weapons to the government, or register them under the National Firearms Act. Require background checks for all gun sales. This will close the so-called “gun show and online sales loophole” that the Obama-Biden Administration narrowed, but which cannot be fully closed by executive action alone. Close other loopholes in the federal background check system. In addition to closing the “boyfriend loophole” highlighted below, Biden will: Reinstate the Obama-Biden policy to keep guns out of the hands of certain people unable to manage their affairs for mental reasons. Close the “hate crime loophole.” Close the “Charleston loophole.” Close the “fugitive from justice” loophole End the online sale of firearms and ammunitions. Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons. the federal background check system is an effective tool for ensuring prohibited persons cannot purchase firearms. But we lack any serious tool to ensure that when someone becomes newly prohibited – for example, because they commit a violent crime – they relinquish possession of their firearms. There are some promising models for how this could be enforced. California has a mandatory process for ensuring relinquishment by any individual newly subject to a domestic violence restraining order. As president, Biden will direct the FBI and ATF to outline a model relinquishment process, enact any necessary legislation to ensure relinquishment when individuals newly fall under one of the federal prohibitions, and then provide technical and financial assistance to state and local governments to establish effective relinquishment processes on their own. Incentivize state “extreme risk” laws. Extreme risk laws, also called “red flag” laws, enable family members or law enforcement officials to temporarily remove an individual’s access to firearms when that individual is in crisis and poses a danger to themselves or others. Biden will incentivize the adoption of these laws by giving states funds to implement them. Biden will enact legislation to close the so-called “boyfriend loophole” and “stalking loophole” by prohibiting all individuals convicted of assault, battery, or stalking from purchasing or possessing firearms, regardless of their connection to the victim. Biden supports enacting the proposal to prohibit anyone under a temporary restraining order from purchasing or possessing a firearm before their hearing. Put America on the path to ensuring that 100% of firearms sold in America are smart guns. Require gun owners to safely store their weapons. Biden will pass legislation requiring firearm owners to store weapons safely in their homes. · Criminal liability is imposed on persons who negligently store firearms under circumstances where minors could gain access to the firearm, regardless of whether the minor actually gains access to or uses the firearm · Criminal liability is imposed on persons who negligently store firearms even when the firearm is unloaded
  4. Regardless of the final numbers, the number of votes for Trump, calmed me down a bit. There are enough people to make a stand. I predict, further advancement of the police state (or more precise, the military police state) Advancement of the police state has been promoted by both parties, but the Republicans (so far) are aligned with the NRA. The NRA supports an armed citizenry, as final deterrent to a police state. The Democrats support citizen subjugation and forced firearm relinquishment. I have neither wandered from my dislike of Trump nor regret voting for him--twice. What I have said before, continues to ring true. If Biden is elected, then there will be sneak attacks on fundamental freedoms, in concert with amnesty for illegal aliens, opening boarders, and world healthcare (funded by the American taxpayer). The damage to America will be significant, but the destruction will not be fully realized in a single term. The Democrats plan to overrun America, to make the election of more Democrats and a second term for Biden (more likely Harris) a certainty. A second term and increased Democratic control of the government, will bring open, aggressive, attacks on fundamental freedoms, and the realization of the socialist/Communist America.

  7. I was big into Duke Nukem in the late 90's. The graphics have improved significantly. Does he still say "Get Some" when blasting?
  8. No worries mate, I am happy if some of information is helpful
  9. I missed one, https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=687927&start=0 (I can't get it to link, but I checked the address and it worked) This link includes 4 youtube videos about the conversion that I found helpful. After recon of the local salvage yards and identifying vehicles that appeared to have, what was sought, I Googled the repair manuals for the year and make of the vehicles and put the diagrams of part location on my phone. Even with the prep work it required 3.5 hours to get the items. Working munched under the dash is not fast work. One nice thing about the Prius, I was able to remove the steering wheel without a special puller Here is a low quality home video, showing the location and steps to remove the control module needed for the conversion: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm4p2rKToK8
  10. If you still want pics of my parts. I will find and photo the unit. Below is the information I used to determine parts needed. I prefer to have more information than less and read most of the posts in the provided links. (There is much duplicated information, but each link contains, a post or two, with new insight. A positive result of the information overload, was learning about the $35 dollar- no ebay module setups. There are more EPS vehicle donors (besides the correct year Prius) listed in the provided links, I searched around for the Prius EPS as it has been proven and tested. However, some of the other listed donor EPS vehicles have good qualities, I am thinking of the Toyota Yaris EPS, with bigger gears, it looks stronger. A final note: I found a "mom and pop" salvage yard for the good deal. Corporate salvage yards, even in Idaho, are wise to this swap and charge $100+ for the required parts.(which still isn't a "bad" deal. The businesses that offer an electric power steering conversions, charge thousands. https://forums.hybridz.org/topic/128956-electric-power-steering-information-compiled/ https://www.hotrod.com/articles/150-electric-power-steering-junkyard-prius-delivers/ https://www.therangerstation.com/tech/toyota-electric-power-steering-eps-conversion/ https://ls1tech.com/forums/suspension-brakes/1848775-35-electric-power-steering-fail-safe-no-ebay-module-no-caster-issues.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAE1D70MHgk https://forums.corral.net/threads/35-electric-power-steering-with-fail-safe-no-ebay-module-and-no-caster-issues.2321889/#post-17529033 https://www.fordmuscleforums.com/threads/100-power-steering-yes-you-can-use-column-electric-power-assist-system-epas.538585/
