I spent a lot of time in "bars back in the day", and I see now why everyone recommended that politics were best left outside.
At least in a bar the combattants can buy each other drinks, but on a forum . . . . .

ABC apologizes for mistaking Kentucky gun range video for Turkish bombing of Syria

More fake news. OTOH, the gun range will get many new members!

I watched 15 seconds of the video
before I totally lost interest. I find
crap like this to be on about a
6th grade level, Mad Magazine
level 'humor'.

Here's something nobody is talking
about. Trump did the rally in LA last
week the day before a special election
for governor and a bunch of seats
in gov't. There was a record voter
turnout and Dems lost squarely
across the board. Because Trump
went there. You don't hear the
media mentioning that 'poll',
do you.

Dems lost in Louisiana? Dear god. How could this ever happen? We’re screwed!

I guess when Trump is gone they will go back to being solidly democrat.

AutoNation, America’s largest car retailer, has sold customers used vehicles with unrepaired defects, according to a new report from the US PIRG Education Fund and the Consumers for Auto Reliability and Safety Foundation.

The report, which surveyed 2,429 vehicles, was conducted across 12 states at 28 different dealerships in July and August 2019. Out of those vehicles, researchers found 285 unrepaired safety recalls and determined that one out of nine used AutoNation cars contained defects, which ranged from faulty ignition switches to malfunctioning airbags.

Well, I know there's been a whole market for trying to sell off cars which were literally underwater. Wouldn't be surprised to see late model cars shipped in from the Bahamas.

edit "underwater" Now my side hurts from laughing at seeing "underwear"

When you sell that many vehicles, some will be bad no matter how hard you try not to do so. The open recall thing is no big deal. I bought my car off a used lot, drove 1,000 miles home, then after some sleep took it to the dealer and asked them to run the VIN for open recalls. I think it had one, some kind of software thing. I had it checked out both because I was buying out of state and it had 2 carfax accident hits. Neither serious. I saved thousands.
