RE: Stranded/broke down

Not bad gas, wrong fuel. A few years ago a station "somehow" ended up with jet fuel in their tank. cars made it about 1/4 mile and died on the road. turned out the owner also had another station station with the same problem. State hit him with some massive fines and next thing you know the station is under new ownership.

RE: Hearing aids

I had my hearing done at my ENT's office. They had me sample a hearing aid and it was around $5-6000 for the pair. I hated them. They made everything sound tinny. Never bought them.

RE: Hot first day of Fall !

Up here it's the longest stretch of sunny days we've had in months. We finally have had a dry spell here for the past two weeks. Before that according to one weather reporter, we were 8" over our total rain for the year back in August.

RE: GM Strike

So you see nothing wrong with Making $15 an hour to assemble autos? Domino's Pizza pays $15hr to deliver pizza in these parts and you also get tips.It is a free country. Let those that want to deliver pizza do their thing and those that want to assemble autos do their thing. Top chef for Dominos and the automotive engineers are the one's that will pull down the real money. Time to go back to school. 2008 GM CEO $14.9 million 2009 UAW worker $28hr. 2019 GM CEO $21.87 million 2019 UAW worker $30hr.

RE: GM Strike

I can't believe they went on strike. I read what GM offered them and it was very generous. It seems that GM offered them lump sum profit sharing bonus, but they wanted a set in stone regardless if it is a down year or not. I would have to side with GM on this especially since it was partly those set in stone increases and pensions that made them go bankrupt in 2008. I think it is fair for a bonus to be based on profits and can fluctuate depending on the economy. Yeah, you may not get as much on a down year, but at least the company will not go bankrupt and you have a chance to make more once the economy goes up instead of being out of a job. Is the profit sharing the only issue you read about? What about the long term use of temp workers, paid much less, and with no benefits? And 2 tier wage system? More of the health care cost on workers? And then many companies have promised things like retirement, then folded before they paid the cost. Then with any "profit sharing" plan, unless the rank and file workers can vote on the salary of the executives, they can loose out because there is no profit after the executives are paid. Temp workers are paid $15 an hour starting out versus $17 to in-progress workers. That is really good starting pay for temps and I would not call that much less. Looking at the retirement and health care offered by GM, it is considerably better than most people receive including myself so I don't see what the gripe is there. I have to pay for most of that stuff myself and I don't get a pension. Also, GM's gross profits were over $14 billion in 2018. Even if they give the executives $200 million combined(only 1.42% of $14 billion), it would still not make that much of a difference in the profit sharing if you received a percentage of gross profit. It would mean receiving maybe a few dollars less. I understand that it is the UAW's agenda to make their workers feel like they aren't getting a fair shake because if the workers are happy, then there is not need for the UAW. The UAW is a employer with workers and executives just like any other company out there making a profit so I get that they have to make themselves relevant, but for people outside of the UAW propaganda, the deal GM proposed seems like a really good one and is better than what most get. So you see nothing wrong with Making $15 an hour to assemble autos? Domino's Pizza pays $15hr to deliver pizza in these parts and you also get tips.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

So what car is safer than the Tesla Model 3 ? Pinto? LOL LOL. Talk about spectacular explosions and car fires. I think Ford is still the king when it comes to vehicles catching on fire.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

This is a fact based on factual data. . And oh I'm so glad you and "facts" been introduced to each other. I wonder why those who are from other states would be critical of California. And those Californians who are critical of their own state has not moved out yet? And if you are from Texas or Florida criticizing California, I'm sure Californians will be laughing in your face. Logic says if their democratic super majority is so bad, why do they keep on electing them and moving the state from super democratic majority to super super democratic majority. Or, why is the state becoming the trendsetter for all other states (except the South duh) and other countries in the Europe. And I'm not even Californian. Now, can we go back to EV trucks. And for those who kept on insisting why it's on Tow Vehicle forum, the discussion is whether our next tow truck will be a Ford, GM, Tesla or Rivian EV pick up. I wasn't being critical of California. I was just stating facts based on US census data, and it is a fact that more of California's poor, elderly on fixed income, and middle class are moving out while mainly the wealthy are moving in due to the high cost of living. California exports its poor to Texas, other states, while wealthier people move in Capitol Journal: High taxes be damned, the rich keep moving to California Californians fed up with housing costs and taxes are fleeing state in big numbers Leaving California: Here’s who’s moving out, who’s moving in. These are just a few of many stories on the subject. California is essentially exporting their government assistance burden to other states wile taking the wealthy from other states due to their policies. As I said, it used to be that the left was for the poor and middle class, but it seems that their utopia that is California is changing to where only the wealthy can survive. It may be that they say they are for the poor and middle class, but their actions don't follow through. LOL! That's funny! According to you, California is following the business model of WalMart, Amazon, and other low wage, no benefit corporations that force their employees to apply for food stamps to get buy. Thereby shifting the corporations burden onto the local government.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

And carbon-based energy does not need that much copper or a lot more steel building the plants and those miles and miles of cables for their grid? No it doesn't. That's why you are starting to see a ramp up in copper and Lithium production. They had enough for the things you mentioned. Now they will need a lot more for golf cart cars. You're going to see a lot more of this going forward: Cool hu? https://i.imgur.com/zkWoad5l.jpg Looks like a modern coal mine where they blow up the mountain rather than send men down into a hole. No need to pay for all that labor in the coal mining industry anymore.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

Electric car clean? Ha, ha, ha...… Let me show you just one of the problems mining has caused? This coper mine was called "the mine that electrified America." Mining for copper caused this super fund site. This site makes one of the top ten super fund sites in this country. It is such a huge problem just like a nuclear waste site, the fix has to be operated forever. Forever is a long time for a fix. While on vacation a few months ago I got to visit and see this super fund site. Crazy problem. And like I said above, the fix has to be applied forever. Forever! This pit has over 40 BILLION gallons of highly toxic water in it. Check out what happened when over 25,000 geese landed in this toxic soup super fund site. Nice hu? This is just one copper mine. Just one. How many more mines do you think are going to be made to keep up with the electric car demand? Remember, this is just one mineral and does not even talk about the others that are needed to manufacture LI batteries. https://i.imgur.com/h4qP6C8l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/pI0srHdl.jpg A PH of 2.5! Nice hu? Unfortunately reality does not fit their narrative of clean electric vehicles. Apparently reality doesn't fit your narrative of how you turn on the lights in your house or turn on the water to flush a toilet. Copper.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Not sure what Musk was thinking, but the 1st rule of deposition, STFU. 2nd rule, only answer the asked question. A most interesting highlight from his depo... click here Did you see where Tusk's lawyers had to recall his motion. LMAO https://i.imgur.com/2cFpp1ll.jpg It's getting like twilight zone out there. On another note we have another Tesla car-B-Q for no reason. It just caught on fire while driving down the road. https://i.imgur.com/4D3iJ7Yl.jpg Money raise soon! I say before the end of the year depending on spending. Must be some Ford in that thing. lol

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

Just wondering if you plan to move in a few years,how can you sell the house? Any good home inspector would flag it for the buyer.It was just built two years ago and made it past the inspector then. Made it past the electrical inspector. Home inspector is an independent hired by a potential buyer. They are on the look out for any little thing.

RE: Hurricane Dorian

If cost was no concern I would build a square box using the type of concrete pilings that support major overpasses taking into consideration the highest recorded tidal surge doubling that elevation for the first floor of living space. If the budget allowed there is no doubt I could do it without the civil or structural engineers getting involved and survive for months or years self-contained. But what fun would that be when everything else around you gets decimated? Not to mention our budget wouldn’t even come close, nice building fantasy though. :) No need to go that far. Build with ICF's. I believe it was in the FL panhandle last year, every house was wiped out except one and I believe he built with ICF's.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

You can call everyone you like, it ain't going to solve your problem; it'll just add to your frustration. The only call you need to make is to an electrician to install a main disconnect switch and transfer switch. This is not rocket science. Except if you don't call the state and just call an electrician, then automatically you pay for the fix out of your pocket. The example I posted above, and the state had to pay to correct all the violations in the development.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

I have friends who are planning on buying in development down where you are. Senior development, pool, club house golf course. Hope they aren't in the development you are in if that is what the builder is building.

Unless you have a Honda or equivalent, be prepared for the noise. I have a 10kw Champion and that thing is noisy when we go to sleep. Not to mention how close is your neighbor?

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

The inspectors may be incompetent or on the take, but they are overseen by the state. In NJ it is the Dept. of Community Affairs. In NC it will be... You need to do some calling with the states licensing bureau. They can steer you to the dept. that oversees the inspectors. I can remember one township in particular where the inspector was on the take here in NJ and he went to prison for it. State then had to come in and make right all the code violations that he passed.
