re: $15K and buying a used FWD/AWD, what would you buy? - stickly
[quote]4Runner or Land Cruiser.[/quote] Obviously both are really good choices. I have a 2017 4Runner Off Road Premium and it is as capable as your going to buy off the lot (sure jeeps are great but they are definitely lacking in the *polished* dept). But for $15k your are going to be buying real...

[quote]Subaru[/quote] For $15k that's what I would do. Get a decent Forester. Pretty good, reliable cars....

re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - stickly
[quote]I was born in Louisiana to a Louisiana family. I was raised in the South's greatest city. And I currently live as deep as Deep South gets. [/quote] That was vague as hell. Where did you grow up? Where do you live now? I guess most importantly, what are your politics? Is America a great cou...

[quote]If NOLA erected a statue of Benjamin Butler, how would it help solve the current issues the city is facing? Especially for someone like the guy you openly mock who grew up there?[/quote] That is a great point. I don't think the left cares about Benjamin Butler at all unless he can be used ...

re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - stickly
[quote]Aw did I get under your skin? Go learn the history of your own fricking city dude. Then you wouldn't need to ask stupid questions like who is Benjamin Butler. He is one of the most reviled people in the history of the city.[/quote] Yes. You did get under my skin. Besides the fact that you s...

[quote]I got pissed off and left, vowing to myself never to return, and I still haven't.[/quote] I realize you are probably from somewhere that means nothing and your perspective on the importance of historical facts alludes to this. No big deal. Just don't tell NOLA that our history doesn't matt...

[quote]You apparently never learned the history so how could it be killed?[/quote] OK. Whatever. I grew up in the City of New Orleans. I saw where it came from and what it became. I saw the hope, and the crime, and the hopelessness... frick off Texas trash....

[quote]You give a prog an inch, they want miles and miles and miles until there will be nothing left but what THEY approve of. [/quote] Exactly. We are catering to a bottomless pit of special needs. Just say 'no'. All they are trying to do is kill history because once people forget their history ...

[quote]lets not whitewash history here. Give Ben his due.[/quote] Props to Ben. I didn't know who he was. Maybe if the left was as good at promoting their heroes as they we're at trying to kill mine I would have known what you were talking about....

[quote]I understand your point of view. I just don't personally get worked up one way or the other over some inanimate object.[/quote] I get where you are coming from- and in somewhere that didn't have history I might agree- but NOLA is a part of so many important parts of US history. Without its h...

[quote]How bout this: Lee can stay if Ben Butler goes up right next to him.[/quote] Sorry. I don't even know what that means. Is Ben Butler a civil rights activist? That's cool with me... Just don't remove the history/importance of NOLA. I honestly DGAF about anything else....

[quote]Define young...I am approaching 50. [/quote] Well then you should have a better understanding that the past that you grew up in isn't something that should be thrown away. I don't know where you grew up but I grew up in New Orleans in the late 60's and early 70's and it was an awesome plac...

[quote]Doesn't bother me as long as all are fair game.[/quote] Man, history just *is*. You might want to stand up for something. Reality/history seems like a good place to make a stand. Otherwise, WTF does any of it mean? You young guys have no clue....

NOLA is a historical city... What does that mean when history has been erased? How will NOLA be any more important/significant than any other southern city/town? NOLA, historically, is a very important part of history. If you remove its history, what is it? Just Chicago South....

re: Am I the only conservative who doesn't mind that Confederate statues are being removed? - stickly
I don't believe in them because of what they mean because honestly they don't *mean* anything anymore. I hate what's happening because it's just the destruction of history. If you remove every milestone and meaningful remembrance (good or bad) from history then you have an entire society that is dir...

re: Learn me about Festool - stickly
[quote]I would recommend looking at the TSO GRS16 Guide for your track saw. [/quote] Holy crap. I haven't seen that before. Kind of crazy that Festool didn't come up with it because it really is the ideal way to get a square cut. Thanks for the heads up!...

re: Learn me about Festool - stickly
Depends on what you're doing. With a track saw you mark your cut, throw down the track, and cut. No clamping required. My guess is I can cut twice as fast with the track saw. For me (a hobbyist) it's no big deal but for a professional making 50-100 cuts a day it would be a huge advantage. The other ...

re: Learn me about Festool - stickly
It has been hugely expensive but I am getting close to 50 and my wife is supportive of me taking up a hobby that I can pursue into retirement. I also fly fish but it's only something I do a few time of year (spring & fall) so during winter I'm a miserable bastard. Anyway, she's cool....
