Every day, huh? Yeah right. Even when this shit is right on my phone I can't seem to do it regularly.

Anyway, all that is new is that we are sending Incognegro off to be plated today. This thing has been a bit of work, but we think it'll all be worth it in the end.

We are also finishing up an SL350 Honda tracker build that oughtta be pretty rad, and a stray from our norm. Pics soon.

Here's Russ' Stainless pipes. Don't ask for a set; they'll set you back a bit (read- these were a pain in the ass)

Later y'all!

Something to think about...

Texas' answer to Welfare

This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX Nov 18, 2010

Put me in charge . . .

Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash
for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans,
blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want
steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women
Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we'll test
recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine and document all tattoos and
piercings. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, smoke or get
tats and piercings, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks?
You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your
"home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be
inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your
own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or
you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of
trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you.
We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting
stereo and speakers and put that money toward the common good.

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of
the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before
you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem,"
consider that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for
doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least
attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system
rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Govt subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes that
is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will
voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't
welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

Back in the Saddle!

So Nic is back from her trip back east, so things can get back to normal. She does have a bit of catching up to do, so phone calls and emails may take a few hours to get to, but you will be hearing from her. Shipping will be running faster too.

While she was gone, I decided to get us a family car, as she has mentioned our needing one for a while. So I picked this up, '59 Edsel. Me, Russ, Evan and Shannon did a shitpound of work after hours to get it ready. She's spoiled.
