    Wow... "welded a wire on an alternator" is impressive... Seems like there was a little too much electricity in the welding arc for the vehicle to handle?

    This is right up their with the guy who once posted on here about his warning light issues after he power washed the inside of his Prius.

    Many of us here are still alive because we got very very lucky after doing something so stupid that we seldom ever tell anyone what we did.

    Given the first 7+ months performance of the current administration, Voting for them could be questioned as well.

    There was also that more innocent owner who had the same issues after paying a detailer who power-washed the interior.

    That right there is a situation where you'd really like to assume they know better.

    How dirty could the inside of a car be that you would want to power wash it?

    An engineer that I used to work with had a favorite quote" If dumb people could fly, you would never see the sun".

    I wouldn't expect any Blue Angels like formation flying. More like a 3D close call circus. There would be no signaling turns or changes in elevation and similar to how people enter an intersection when a traffic light is out or heaven forbid when they encounter something as complicated as a roundabout.

    Ah yes execution of Mr Ts leave plan.
    Folks were told not to go and to leave our favorite country since June last year, Biden totally did that in June 2020.

    I do not believe any other president had the nerve to leave because they knew it would go ape $hit and what is happening is exactly what I expected would occur back in 2002. I was told I was unamerican and not supporting the troops when I stated my opinion that if the communists couldn’t nation build and stop Islamic terror it’s doubtful we could either.

    I don’t believe we could have done any different without a massive buildup of men and equipment before exit which would provide an even larger target

    That said Rs will arm wave spreading manure about Biden’s folly for at least 30 years about how he is failing Afghans while also talking about the people seeking asylum all being dangerous terrorists and offering no answer as to how they would have done differently, beyond annexation of Afghanistan and making it a permanent base spending trillions a year as a permanent occupation.

    In so far as labor shortages and economy stuff Biden inherited an economy full of Bubbles ready to blow Ts wasteful policies mean we don’t have anything left in the playbook besides trying to inflate our way out of debt.
    As soon as we stop and touch interest or any other metric we will have every segment of our economy blow simultaneously (housing, stock, index/dollar, bonds, auto) something that never happened even in the Great Depression. Neither T nor Biden want to take the pill and have been punting the can.
    Can’t blame either.

    this is a car forum. there are plenty of other hobbies out there... several folks are ready and willing to trade in their car the instant something like this happens, because they don't feel a commitment to keeping it running. it's just a tool to move things.

    Four years in the Marines comes close. However, the Marines cured my depression from a failed relationship. It made me think 'arranged marriages' might be wiser than letting amateurs mess around.
