    OT: Getting rid of fleas

    Lindane. You said it was only you, no children allowed. It's a persistance poison, used in kennels and a last resort "nukem". Lindane also kills the flea eggs. Carpet presents the problem of harboring flea eggs if it's a real infestation. Note: DO NOT go barefooted about the residence for 6...

    OT- I made the Texas Straw Poll !!!!!!!!

    Ray's 2nd Amendment Blog (1) What is so controversial about the Consititution of the United States? Forget Canada. They don't vote here. Nobody cares if you don't vote. That goes for Citizens as well. (2) If the gubmint don't trust me with me with my guns, there is no reason for me to trust...

    shortening a rifle barrel - legally

    I'm assuming AR type. Gunbuilder pegged it. Blind pin as it can be removed later. Still can't be mated with reciever unless the SBR stamp is handy. Seems the discussion went to SBS but that's not what I get out of it, more like the SBR(temp) route. Build a hundred. But don't mate them. For the...

    OT Propane valves for large (500 gal) tanks

    Joe, the smell is mercaptan. It's an additive used for propane leak detection as propane itself is odorless. Excuse please if you know this already. CPSC Safety Relief Recall I would leak check first off if not an obviously gross leak, using a straight stream bottle spray with a mix of 1/3 to...

    Oil "crunch" coming

    Jim PLEASE STOP WHINING ABOUT $2 trillion war cost and then talk about C130's loaded with pallets of money. It is not informative other than typically misleading info that implies $2 trillion was lost to vandals, which is not the case (YET). It was flown to Iraq, yes, about $12 billion. But you...

    OT- Homeland Security Fee

    I find it pretty amazing that the slogan of "no taxation without representation" led to quite a little war for independence... (fast forward, 250 years later) Now, full circle, here we are again. Taxation without representation. No more incumbents. No more lawyers. No more politicians. No...

    This week's BIG job...loader bucket.

    Gbent nailed it. New cutting edge. Upstate new york got rocks? If you're using it in dirt or rocks, add tooth shanks and teeth. Repair or replace bucket skin as needed first. An air arc, arc gouger, will of great help. Let there be fire.

    (1) Immigration and Reform Control Act (IRCA), 1986: A blanket amnesty for some 2.7 million illegal aliens (2) Section 245(i) Amnesty, 1994: A temporary rolling amnesty for 578,000 illegal aliens (3) Section 245(i) Extension Amnesty, 1997: An extension of the rolling amnesty created in 1994 (4)...

    OT: illegal immigration

    The Congress has not seen fit to divulge estimated cost of only 12 million illegal aliens to the taxpayer. Independents range that as high as $2.6 TRILLION. Five times the cost of Iraq! 12 million illegals is a lowball estimate. 40 million is the high estimate. Realistically thought to be about...

    rivett 1020s I want one bad

    John, you just have to consider that in this particular case I might assign human characteristics to a machine which in fact is not capable of altruism in any form. Hence the terms, buxom or voluptuous...makes it easier to love. You know what I mean, not what I say? :D
