Off-Topic / Re: can u drive a stick shift?
« on: February 24, 2021, 04:00:19 pm »Message ID: 1351572
Absolutely love driving stick shift. Just bought a new Subaru, requested stick shift and found that it was fifteen hundred dollars cheaper. Apparently less than ten percent of Americans know how to drive stick so the resale value is lower. I just hand the cars to my kids and let them worry about reselling the vehicles. Hasn't happened yet as they usually burn out the engine or crash the cars. I have a nineteen sixty five jeep CJ (I call her Iron Maiden) that has two stick shifts (one is for overdrive, or, an extra half gear). It requires the clutch to be double pumped in order to down gear into first gear. Both kids learned on that car. I live in Colorado and have only put the hard top on twice. I have put the bikini top on when it rains but pretty much leave her topless. My wife has a little sports car that has the paddle shift.

The Divided States of America lead pioneer has moved on to warmer pastures. The brilliant inventor of terms like "libtard" and "Dumocrat"-I know of one Fusioncash poster that uses those terms quite frequently (almost as frequently as they are filled with wrong information). The supreme hater role model for such greats as Ingraham, Greene, Trump, Hannity, Tucker, QAnon, Fox News and Proud Boys. Fox is totally lost today. An addict to Hillbilly Heroin (Oxycontin and Hydrocodone) arrested April twenty eight in two thousand and six for shopping different doctors to feed his prescription drug habit. The number of hateful quotes from this 'man' spare no mercy on LBGTQ, Women, or races. You know it's cold out there when Satan puts his best log in the fire.

Better to be alive on hold than dead? I know of several people who would trade their coffin for the mere thought of being locked up at home and wearing a mask. I have been so happy working at home that I kind of dread having to go back into the office next year. Our latest corporate town hall has indicated that we are, most likely, not going into the office till next year, if at all. Production numbers and quality have jumped dramatically and the cost of two corporate buildings does not seem to make much sense. I am perfectly happy working from home, taking a few breaks here and there to entertain my dogs, not having to get dressed up, not showering, not commuting three days a week (I worked from home two days a week before CoVid).

Your attempt to anger readers fell short on anyone within the financial industry. The peeps writing your story regarding the horrific invasion of privacy bestowed upon citizens of the United States by the big, bad Bank of America entity/people missed review of the the USA Patriot act (thanks to Dubya), FDIC Law and Financial Crimes Enforcement Network. Domestic Terrorists are not a protected class and bank/credit/money transfer companies are allowed to share information (without permission of the citizen) if there is any suspicion that the funds may be involved in the commission of money laundering, terrorist activity and/or the funding of terrorist activity. The large portion of my day is spent reviewing transactions to make sure that the money is not being used for illicit activity and, if so, filing the requisite suspicious activity reports, If the money is believed to be associated with terrorist activity and/or money laundering the report is put on a heightened status to the responsible law enforcement agency.

I have been saddened to see several of my favorite restaurants closed but encouraged by the ones that are thinking outside of the box and fighting to stay open. We have had hundreds of restaurants that have purchased tents, outside heaters and converted their parking lots/side walks and street space into extended dining areas. Boozhy restaurants that never would have entertained the thought of delivery or take out now embrace these venues. Reduced prices, advertising and please to the public have brought success to some of these restaurants. Restaurants from colder places (New York, Chicago, etc) have begun moving into our community. Life will go on for these entrepeneurs. There has been so much more positivity in the new year as opposed to the loads of negativity last year.

Even the so called 'no call' lists do not work. I do not answer my phone if I do not recognize the number. I encourage callers to leave a message as I will block unknown numbers that do not leave messages. My mother was in a memory care unit and the caretaker called, failed to leave a message and was blocked. Unfortunately I missed som updates on my mother's condition because of my policy. Due to the nature of my primary job I sometimes have time to pull up the information on phone numbers calling me. If I have enough time I file a report with the authorities on the caller and their non-adherence to the no-call list. I had over a thousand letters requesting political contributions from my parents that I opened, placed in the postage paid, self-addressed envelopes and dropped off at the post office. E-mails are horrible and I have yet to figure out a way to make them stop. Once you request that a group stop, you get added to the list of two other like minded groups.

I can recall that feeling all too well. Time is the most precious commodity that we have and success consumes that commodity.  Sadly, after working so hard in college, the higher paying jobs extract just as much time out of you. Devotion to being self employed can also consume your time. I would not have had time to post on Fusion Cash during college and am only able to do so, at this time, because I have a little down time between meetings, reports and I am working from home during CoVid. I would love to not have my time consumed but I love the freedom it affords my family. Neither kid needed/needs to work during college and my wife has all the time needed for a healthy lifestyle. I  have salted away a nice, tidy little sum to rest comfortably on in my retirement days if I ever decide to retire.

Off-Topic / Re: Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene files articles of impeachment against Biden

Marjorie Taylor Greene is a good replacement for the previous (2016-2020) president that was impeached twice and almost as good as a German leader at manipulating the media. Suggesting that 9/11 (and the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School) were hoaxes, democratic party responsibility for satanic child trafficking rings,  embracing racism (opposes the Black lives Matter movement) with bigoted language and Islamaphobia (calling unimpeached president Obama a muslim-he is christian), endorsing the idea that the election was stolen, suggesting that a wildfire in California was the result of a laser beamed from space controlled by a prominent jewish family with connections to powerful Democrats, quoted as saying "the only way you get your freedoms back is it's earned with the price of blood" (maybe she could have gotten more people killed than trump with the speech he used to get impeached) and endorsing Qanon lunacy are just a few of her 'great' accomplishments. One would be surprised that republicans are standing up against her extremism except for the fact that she is over the edge crazy and beginning to make them look worse.

Thank you, Cadence, for trying to provide insight as to what trump has done besides creating the divided states of America. You referenced the wall of which one thousand miles was promised and eighty new miles were completed (roughly three hundred and twenty miles was old wall that was reinforced). This was funded by diverting money from the pentagon under the pretense of a national security emergency after trump had said that Mexico would pay for it. We have seen no pesos traveling from the south as of today. Bringing jobs back to America was another perceived accomplishment. There has been a loss of approximately three point nine million jobs during the current administration as of October 2020. trump did accomplish getting Obama to produce his bona fide birth certificate, was the first president to be nominated for two impeachments, increased national debt by 23 trillion dollars, promoted distrust in science, was dishonest about a virus he knew was deadly with hope of propping up the economy and stock market, kept his infidelity payments secret/paid for tilll he was elected and made friends (kind of) with North Korea while alienating allies.

of the pro-trump protestors, that died yesterday during his hobby of treason and sedition, was previously pictured loving on two rifles (oh so-Rambo style) with a caption stating he wished his opponents would come to his hood in Alabama. He died of a heart attack after accidently tasering himself. Guess the guns couldn't guard him from his own lack of intelligence. Thirteen rioters have been arrested with dozens more placed on wanted bulletins by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Perhaps they will be arrested before they do harm to them selves. Comfort comes in the thought that these fine citizens will be charged with treason, sedition and rebellion among other charges any one of which will relieve them of their right to bear arms and vote. I think neutering should be added to their penalties.

Members are resigning, jumping ship and chastising trump. Are we surprised? trump was impeached. The house impeached trump. He was one of three presidents that have been impeached. So many people cling to thoughts other than he was impeached but the truth is that trump was impeached. All the Senate needed to do was to follow through with the wishes of the citizen majority, carried out by the House, and removed trump from office. It is more than likely that whoever took trump's spot would have taken the pandemic seriously and percentage of the three hundred and sixty five thousand dead Americans (including my mother) would still be alive. Five people died yesterday as a result of a rush on the Capitol after trump continued to lie about the election being stolen. Five people who will not be going home to their families. The blood of these five is on the hands of the Senate members that allowed trump to continue.

I love CCandPam's response about a free country becoming socialist.Small spelling error involved as CCandPam spelled facist as 'free'. Anyone can condone what happened yesterday definitely sits in the higher ranks of hatred and divisionism that is known as the Trump way of life. Fox news is speaking out against it. Amendment 25 can be implemented in under five days which would insure that the president is unable to cause any more damage to democracy.trump has continuously held on to the false belief that the election was rigged (more than his entry via Russian hackers in 2016). Sixty two election lawsuits and sixty one election lawsuit defeats-many from the same people from his party that he helped get elected. The Republican weighted supreme court has sided against trump. Three recounts have confirmed a Biden win. Thirteen days till President elect Biden takes office which is too long given the current president's lack of coherency.

Thank you very much! A Happy New Year to you as well! I just got back to my computer after taking some time off from all three and a half jobs. I am relaxed, decompressed and ready to crush my goals in two thousand and twenty one. Seems like a lot of people are more optimistic and ready to get back to life. I checked in with my Day job every four days to minimize e-mails and help where needed. I am checking in with my second job after this post am on track with job three. I was able to hit all of my goals by the first week in December and could afford to take a little time off to plan and find efficiencies to utilize in the New Year. I have set aside some time each month for family, goal review, and researching new streams. I have three picked out that I should be able to implement by the end of the summer.

The Washington  deletion of redskins without a replacement name was kind of silly. I loved Chief Wahoo on the Indian's baseball jersey. So much, in fact, I ordered the baseball jersey before they took his image off. Double win now that they are taking the name off as well. I have talked to all of my Blackhawks fans and they seem to think that the Blackhawks emblem is sacred and will last through all of this. I have ordered a Blackhawks jersey just in case-seems the writing is on the wall. I have an old Milwaukee Braves jersey. I would think that the Braves name will have to be deleted as well. I understand both sides of the story but I think that it is a very small percentage of native americans that care. I have read that the reservations get a large sum of cash in subsidies for names pertaining to indians.

Where are all the naysayers from several months ago-those that said this was just like the yearly flu? As of today, the number of deaths from the Corona Virus have exceeded three hundred thousand. The deadliest flu seasons were in nineteen sixty seven when about one hundred thousand Americans died, nineteen fifty seven when roughly one hundred and sixteen thousand died and the American (erroneously called Spanish) flu of nineteen eighteen counted roughly six hundred and seventy five thousand deaths over four years (per Reuters). No statistics on how many of the deaths could be attributed to following role models in the current administration, that refused to wear masks and/or fell prey to the supposed 'fake' news propaganda.
