    Why cannot we do that with literally EVERY program in the federal govt???

    And then make them accountable for that 'end of year' waste???

    Imagine a balanced budget and lower taxes...

    Just imagine another MAGA wave of economic growth!!!


    And imagine lefty heads exploding...

    All kidding aside...

    I heard a good comment about this the other day...

    When we were kids... we got to go to 'Independence day' celebrations... where military hardware was on display! Kids got to climb all over tanks and explore the insides... it was good for a nationalistic attitude.

    Wonder if the REAL reason the left is against Trump's parade... (other than they are against literally anything Trump does)... is because they worked ohhh soooo hard... to destroy a nationalistic attitude in the USA... and this gathering in DC, along with the television it will generate... will set back their efforts!

    Funny how a group that profits from what makes America great... wants to destroy that greatness...
    Kinda like trying to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs...

    When I was in GA we had some bean counters that had no idea fuel was wasted but got involved with the vehicle parts we could stock. They didn't know anything about that either and forbid us to stock some parts we badly needed. We had to hide the excess parts to keep functional and that worked for us with few exceptions. The big exception was spark plugs. We couldn't get spark plugs because the bean counters thought they were being wasted. We ended up with a lot of trucks that wouldn't start in cold weather. It took a three star general to resolve that problem.

    RSBN, Fox10 and OAN Will Broadcast DC July 4th Celebration Throughout Events – Livestream Links…
    .
    ABC, CBS, NBC and MSNBC have all announced their refusal -and broadcast boycott- of any July 4th celebrations. Yes, the U.S. media have fallen so far, they are now openly proclaiming their alignment with the anti-American political resistance.

    However, RSBN, Fox10 Pheonix and OANN will all broadcast the patriotic events from Washington DC to celebrate Independence Day, including President Trump’s participation in the 2019 Salute to America.

    See the Livestream links:

    Same here. Never had cable and never will. Why would I invite propaganda into my home and even have to pay for it? I would not willingly drink poison.

    I don't have cable either. I get NEWSMAX which is great except a couple of conservative hosts think they need to have the democrats input. I have heard enough of the democrats BS and they don't have logical sensible arguments just talking points and bare faced lies that irritate me. I have emailed them several times and suggested they find a democrat with some sense that can add to the conversation or not have one of them idiots on. An opposing point of view would be interesting but the hate speech toward this country and Trump are not input that any sane person can appreciate.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Just saw a family walking down the street. With food in their hand. A young boy smiled while pointing at my flag.

    I got filled with emotion, and still have a tear in my eye. Maybe there is hope.
