re: 100K+ miles club? - islandtiger
Toyota Highlander 2008 168,000 Not the first mechanical problem Recently traded in 2008 Prius with 172,000. Again, not the first problem. I have had numerous Toyotas, all well over 100,000 and no problems. Hard to get anything else....

re: Vehicle attack in Barcelona - islandtiger
[quote]#ISIS, via its "news agency," claims responsibility for #Barcelona attack.[/quote] No surprise to anyone. It may have been discussed earlier, but just what is the end game for ISIS? How do they expect these random attacks to help them achieve the goal? I get the whole caliphate thing, b...

re: The Pledge of Allegience is dead.... - islandtiger
[quote]do not think that means what you think that means.[/quote] I think he was referring to the "make" part of the statement. Nobody should be made to recite the PoA. I always do when it is appropriate, but I leave out the "under God" phrase, which was a late addition and adds nothing from my...

re: what is the chant "Jews will not replace us" about? - islandtiger
[quote]Let them chant with nobody listening. [/quote] I wonder if their movement would dry up and blow away if no counter protesters showed up, no media covered their events, no politicians referenced their actions and people on the street just walked by and paid them no attention. Or would they...

re: What is happening is not necessarily bad for Trump. - islandtiger
[quote]What is happening is not necessarily bad for Trump.[/quote] Quintessential "glass half full" statement! Boy, some of you are wearing rose colored glasses. This week will not sink his presidency, but by most measures it was bad. Even his closest supporters recognize that....

re: If we take down statues and forget the Civil War happened - islandtiger
I don't think anyone is demanding we "forget the Civil War happened." Mist people just want to remove memorials that celebrate the actions of those who tried to tear the county apart. I could certainly support memorials that identify significant battlefields and recognize both Union and CSA foot s...

re: Ballers: how much would a house on the bluff in Natcez run? - islandtiger
I had always wondered what the view would be from that house when crossing the bridge, so thanks for the link. Crazy to compare what you get for that same price in Seattle. Hint: much smaller, much lower finish quality, much smaller lot, no view. As a previous poster noted, significant imvestment...

[quote]I'm starting to actually feel bad for normal left of center peeps..[/quote] I probably fit your vision of "left of center," but no reason to feel bad for me or others like me. Most of us have hope that out of this train wreck of an administration will come a coalition of moderates from bo...

re: So the new racist militant left (Antifa) is fighting the old racist militant left (KKK)? - islandtiger
[quote]What does that have to do with Trump?[/quote] You are kidding, right? Trump is president of the United States and is looked upon to bring the country together and help set a moral compass. He had an opportunity to step up and he blew it big time. His second statement was headed in the ri...

re: and the piss-poor development of the Northshore continues - islandtiger
The other extreme is the growth management limits in places like Seattle. Very few variances granted to areas zoned urban, rural, agriculture and forestry. Nearly 2/3 of the county is essentially off limits to commercial and high density development. Protects open space, viable agriculture and fo...
