Yeah, I know. And, I can't fault you in the least for ranting about
it. I suspect our parents did the same thing although I can only
remember one incident of my father ranting.
I was fifteen and swiped his car in the middle of a snowstorm and
drove some friends around. When he came out to drive to a dental
appointment, he found the car gone. Naturally, he called the police to
say that his car was stolen.
Anyway, I came back and promptly got stuck in the snow on the way into
the carport. He came out and caught me. He called the police to tell
them that his son had the car. I was lucky they didn't ask how old I
... After that was when the ranting started.

Recently had tires replaced, the dealer used nitrogen to fill the tire
at no charge. I know that the use of dry nitrogen has been a Nascar
staple for years, but it is to remove the variable of moisture. They
need it we do not.
I think Obama was good in getting Osama Bin Laden.
I think he has been useless otherwise, oh let me correct that.
He has been very harmful to the future of the country.
He said he would protect American Jobs, but many of the things he has
done have been the opposite.
His foreign policy is terrible.
His National policy is terrible.
His Economic policies seem to be non-existent.
I won't discuss Obomination Healtcare.. (get it).
Change? Change for the people who have been on welfare all their lives
Did any of the Financial disaster people get brought to trial?
Did Corrzine pay for an obvious theft of customer funds? No he got a walk.
It's more of the same BULLSHIT.
But unfortunately we are a 2 party system. If only Americans realized
that it's not woring. But people are idiots. I hope people start voting
independent.. they have no cohesive party... they wil vote their minds,
not the party line... So what if nothing gets done.. thats better than
what the current idiots are doing in congress.
I agree with the premise of your rant, but disagree on the result of the
Quick story. Went to a place to get registered as a recognized flyer, so
the shoes can stay on, the computer stays in the bag along with the liquids,
and no backscatter x-ray. You all ought to check it out if you fly often.
Anyway, brother in law, sister me and my better half in the mini van, and we
stopped to eat on the way home. Came out, and B-I-L says, hey you have a
flat tire. Mostly flat, prolly about 15 pounds left in it. Luck had it
that there was a tire shop across the street so we went and got it fixed.
A twig. No crap. About 3/16" in diameter, went right through about a half
depth tread, steel belted radial. WTF?
It was lucky that it was noticed. Probably would have been noticed after we
got up to speed. We would not have been in front of a tire shop, then. The
tire might have been ruined from driving on it. A tire pressure monitor
would have caught the problem as soon as it went through, or at least before
we put ourselves in any danger on the road
For certain it is a government requirement now.
BUT the SUV's were rolling over because of tire failure caused by under
inflation vs simply being under inflated. IIRC this was a big problem
in the Middle East. After a day if playing around in the sand dunes
with under inflated tires the tires were failing, on the way home, from
under inflation at highway speeds.

Probably so. Down down here in the south our four seasons are wet and
dry and that comes multiple times during the year. ;~)
I recall many years ago wondering to my self why people swapped out
their tires twice a year. I guess our tires should could also be called
"all year" tires.

According to the Nokian literature, they were designed to be used in
North America year round. They have a true snow rating and also a top
speed of 147 mph rating.
They were excellent in the snow this past winter and they are
comfortable handling on dry roads. I've only had them to about 115 mph,
but they are smooth and solid riding and I've had no slips in the rain.
I only have 5000 miles on them so far, but based on what I've
experienced, I'd buy them again.
I really appreciate this.
It is going to be worth a lot when the wife says, "You want to spend
how much for that saw?"
Now all I need is something similar so she will encourage me to
purchase an American Beauty lathe.
