Fawking vendors...

I went back and forth with one on my vendors on a special order gasket. Provided measurements and a picture. Vendor confirms order and all the listed specs matched mine. Gaskets arrive today. And they are wrong. Even worse, the labels affixed to the gaskets have the correct specs. Wtf!!!

What I ordered and was confirmed by vendor:


What I got instead:


The gasket above has one solid ring and two wound rings. The lower pic only has two rings.

People going to fight a war, and when they get home alive realize its not what they saw or did or the bombs and flying bullets that have left them sleepless since then.

That may be, but I don't blame unrelated companies from divesting themselves from what has become a highly toxic and increasingly political debate, and the NRA is fueling the fire. Their political influence is disturbingly high, especially in Florida. To go against the NRA there, even just a little bit, is like slitting your own throat.
You only see the effect while ignoring the cause. Going against the NRA doesn't affect your campaign funds much, the NRA is really small potatoes where contributions are concerned, but it does affect the way the voters see you. It isn't the NRA's power, but the people's power.
Looks like you are blissfully unaware that you are in the minority.

You don't have to give funds directly to have an influence. If you've got a loyal base that take your word as gospel and share your agenda, you've got the peoples power. You can then use that power to carry or bury anyone you want. This is true with the NRA and many other organizations.

So you are annoyed that not everybody thinks like you.

One of my pet hates is people using the word "dude". I find it insulting.

Can we just get rid of these damned things already? I feel like Oliver FFS, "Please sir, may I have some more?"

Word.
Only if you completely disregard logic and reason. You said yourself that going against the NRA is like the kiss of death. For that statement to be true NRA supporters must be a majority. To claim otherwise is to deny objective reality.

I don't normally do well reasoned and wordy arguments when I'm typing on my phone. You're going to have to deal with it.

Obviously. This comment was far too wordy. You could have stopped after the first nine words and your comment would have been just as valid.

One quick google...

Several prominent Russians had contact with NRA during 2016 campaign - NY Daily News

Anyhow, came here to throw out a rant about Cartoon Network and why the f they decide to show Ben10 every dang hour all week. (My munchkin is in town, getting quickly tired of Ben10 instead of sponge bob, gum ball, and teen titans).


Oh yeah and gd commercials with awful jingles that burrow into your brain to the point where you hear one tiny fraction of it and the jungle is in your head for hours. There’s a dentist place out here that has the worst jingle, I’m tempted to go down there and play their commercial on a loud speaker pointed right at their office until they break and never play it again.
