Any idea what could be going on wrong with my car? - GeneralLee
There is a slow leak (3-4 drops per day) of red fluid under the engine, closer to the passenger side. My guess is it's transmission fluid. I have taken it to two different auto shops and they can't find any leak and all the fluids check out as full. So whatever tests they are doing aren't identify...

re: What's next on the agenda assuming tax reform passes? - GeneralLee
[quote]Yeah it really needs to be infrastructure IMO [/quote] Would be interesting to see how the votes would come down on this. My guess is you lose some of the deficit hawks in GOP but then gain votes from red state Dem senators....

Could Obamacare be tried in the courts again if tax reform passes? - GeneralLee
My understanding is the the Supreme Court ruled that Obamacare was constitutional only because the individual mandate was a tax. The Senate tax bill would repeal the individual mandate portion of Obamacare. So does that mean that the remaining provisions of Obamacare could then logically be ruled ...

re: Is this a good deal on a car lease? - GeneralLee
[quote]So why not just buy the Toyota or Honda then?[/quote] Toyota Sienna is overdue for a major revamp (I like it but my wife hates the interior). Honda lease rate was ~$100/month higher than the Pacifica even though the MSRP was lower by ~$5-10K than the Pacifica, crazy. We did like the Odys...

re: All I want for Christmas is John McCain - GeneralLee
Not going to wish for him to die. Just want his legacy permanently ruined for all the world to see his hypocrisy. He should be in jail for killing those sailors on the Forrestal and fanning pointless wars in the Middle East that have killed hundreds of thousands....

re: Do last night's results change anything going forward in Congress? - GeneralLee
[quote]The reason Trump can't shite done is because he has blown all his political capital making dumb shite Twitter posts instead of being the master negotiator he sold himself as. Last nights crushing defeat is a signal to existing republicans that they do not have to blindly support Trump like a Tru...

re: Early Exit Polls: Trump Not a Factor in Governor Races - GeneralLee
The data doesn't match your title. All it takes is a few percent of the electorate making a statement against Trump to swing a race. In this case, more than twice as many voters said this was a statement against Trump as for Trump (out of those who said the vote was related to Trump)....

Do last night's results change anything going forward in Congress? - GeneralLee
Do you think this will light a fire under Republicans in Congress to get meaningful legislation passed before the 2018 midterms might remove their majorities in the House and Senate? In a rational world I would think it would (i.e. might as well get stuff done to motivate your base, and even if you...

re: Trumpsgiving Eve - GeneralLee
I'll never forget that evening. Drank a whole bottle of wine to drown my sorrow- I thought- when it looked like Hillary was going to win early in the evening. Then the Florida and Virginia returns started to come in strong for Trump and all I could do was hit refresh every minute on the NYT tracke...

re: Democrats are desperate to avoid a culture war with Trump in 2018 - GeneralLee
I'd love to see what "economic message" they have. Fighting against tax cuts doesn't quite seem to be a winning message. Heck, liberals might know even less about what drives economic growth than what the different parts of a gun are....

re: Here are the new tax brackets in the GOP plan - GeneralLee
Did the rough math and this bill probably saves us ~$2k/year on our taxes (we are in the >$200K/year crowd). Our itemized deductions were at about the level of the new standard deduction, so looks like our tax savings from the new tax brackets were able to more than offset the higher taxes that com...

CATO survey on political correctness - GeneralLee
No surprise here in that more liberals than conservatives are in favor of banning speech they find offensive and find it more difficult to have friendships with someone who has different political views. [link=(https://www.cato.org/blog/poll-71-americans-say-political-correctness-has-silenced...

re: Mass shooting on Vegas Strip discussion - GeneralLee
We have about 1,000 special forces on the ground in Syria assisting the SDF in fighting ISIS. There are some special forces (Delta Force, etc.) that occasionally launch raids and participate in the combat up close in Syria and Iraq as well. The only places left to drop a huge bomb to make a statem...
