Never let the truth get in the way if you are a Liberal.
Maybe I'm wrong but I though an internal combustion engine was basically an air pump. Getting the air in and out in an efficient manner produced more power. I flipped the air cleaner cover on my 68 327 Impala because it allowed more air to the air cleaner than the one and a quarter inch hole on the side snout. It had nothing to do with the sweet moan from the spread bore carburetor at full throttle.
One of the best sounding exhaust I ever heard was on a ten wheel flat bed truck with a big block V-8. The owner had simply welded a three ft section of six inch black pipe to each exhaust pipe in place of a traditional muffler.
My wife just started nursing school. Tonight she is going to practice doing a bed bath on me. I hope she wears her naughty nurse outfit
She has been helping take care of her invalid mother for almost ten years so she knows how. She just needs a male patient and figured I would enjoy it. Out of the fifteen students in her class, one is male.
After years of my business breaking even, meaning no profit but no loses either, I had to sell some land to repay the loans I had been living off of. This triggered a large capital gains tax. I shifted expenses forward to cancel that out. The next year with less expenses I made a large paper profit and had to pay the Social Security and income tax on that profit that wouldn't have be due on the capital gains.
The smart me thought me knew what he was doing and the lazy me didn't take the few minutes to figure it both ways the first time. This cost me $50,000 in penalties and interest when I couldn't pay it. A CPA would have saved me more than $25.
Until everyone gos to war against climate change nothing will happen. In 1941 the US was at war. There was a real threat of invasion yet there was still the need for a military draft because many men wouldn't volunteer to fight. Until everyone is forcibly drafted into the warming war, few are willing to suffer the consequences.
There will be food rationing, travel restrictions, and many deaths, remember, this is war. Until the politicians declare war and institute the draft most will be conscientious objectors.
