re: 30 years ago this British beauty came to America (SFW) - Lima Whiskey
[quote] ....and made the Chrysler K Car and Ford Pinto appear to be reliable and sturdy by comparison.[/quote] I'd like to say you're wrong... but. Massive corrosion problems. They screwed up the paint prep and most of the imports just rusted away. Even the zinc plated tailgates rusted. P...

re: 30 years ago this British beauty came to America (SFW) - Lima Whiskey
My classic just died on me again. And the rust has gotten bad enough that I can't justify the repair. Charles Spencer King was a hell of a designer though....

re: This North Korea thing isn't getting that much airplay - Lima Whiskey
[quote]I don't give the First frick about North Korea. They should be ignored.[/quote] They like to test us on a regular basis, and unfortunately they've learned that we don't punch back. And now they have a credible nuclear weapon, with a potential delivery system. It's something we...

[quote] And then the Chinese annex NK. [/quote] I don't think they want to share a frontier with a US ally. It's the same situation in Ukraine. Russia wants a buffer. China has two options; talks with the South where they trade unification for some kind of disarmament (and US withdra...

re: The Confederacy was a con job on whites. And still is. - Lima Whiskey
[quote]I think it was trying to refer to the culture of southern pride that can tend to cling to the exploits of the erstwhile CSA.[/quote] One last thought. The Confederacy achieved total mobilization, so everyone has Confederate ancestors. If you had family in the south in the 1860s, they ...

re: Game of Thrones Season 7 Teaser - Lima Whiskey
:cheers: [quote]Well that movie sucked bad, but we all wanted it to not suck because we had a huge emotional investment in the series.[/quote] That's certainly part of it. I remember my friends tip toeing around that realization with the second season of True Detective. No one wanted to ...

re: Game of Thrones Season 7 Teaser - Lima Whiskey
[quote] I've got three notebooks full of manifestos on why this show sucks now and none of the motivations make sense, but I'm drunk. I'll follow-up tomorrow if necessary.[/quote] It's just badly written now. They're facing the same problem Martin is, Martin can't figure out how to get his...

re: NPR is a joke, why do taxpayers fund it - Lima Whiskey
[quote]Agree. Cut the funding. NPR is regressive propaganda.[/quote] Which is funny, because they can't see that. They consider their beliefs the right beliefs, and their preferred future, the right future. They look at time as a linear progression leading towards their "more perfect" society. ...

re: NPR is a joke, why do taxpayers fund it - Lima Whiskey
[quote] However, they are clearly biased. No federal government money should go an organization who represents only a portion of the people. [/quote] The BBC has a governing body that's supposed to mitigate this issue, but it doesn't work. They're just quieter about their biases. We should ...

re: The Confederacy was a con job on whites. And still is. - Lima Whiskey
[quote]I think it was trying to refer to the culture of southern pride that can tend to cling to the exploits of the erstwhile CSA. [/quote] Southern pride is a kind of quiet of nationalism, so I don't think you'll ever be able to separate it from the war. The war also cemented our sense of ...

[quote] Like Canna, most Southerners didn’t own slaves. But they were persuaded to risk their lives and limbs for the right of a few to get rich as Croesus from slavery. For their sacrifices and their votes, they earned two things before and after the Civil War. First, a very skinny slice of the im...

re: Black Sails back half season 4 thread *Spoilers through episode 7 - Lima Whiskey
That was a fine episode. I think it's fair to say it wasn't one of the greatest, and that's not meant to undermine it, it's simply a reflection of how good Black Sails has been that such a good episode wouldn't make some sort of top five list. But lord... so much [i]happened[/i]. In almost every ...
