Re: The hidden truths about your electric car

Yes, the tech has drawbacks, but don't think for one moment fossil fuel tech doesn't. For starters there's air pollution, then a large amount of the fuel you burn is turned into heat and noise rather than motion, the source is finite. Extraction doesn't help the environment. And building new cars, h...

Re: BIDEN AND THE BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALISTS' COST-OF LIVING CRISIS

The first party to propose Universal Health Care in the USA was Theodore Roosevelt's National Progressive Bull Moose Party. Obamacare was nothing of the sort it was just cheaper health insurance. A centre right position. And whilst relative to the farther right position of the Republican Party, it ...

The "Populist right" are the Lega Nord, they are federalists and in some ways socialists, they're nothing like the Republicans.

Re: I Agree With Joe Biden

"...when it comes to "need" there isn't any..." That's the tricky part........ who gets to decide who needs one? Practicality demonstrates a lot. If an intruder breaks into your home, do you want the gun which will fire the moment you pull the trigger, or the weapon with a cocking lever and a safet...

Re: I Agree With Joe Biden

If I lived in your country, I'd definitely have guns, but not an AR-15. An AR-15 has to be cocked, it has a safety, it can jam. When seconds count, a double action revolver is ready to fire straight away, no messing. Any misfired round doesn't jam the gun, just pull the trigger again. And if a .357 ...

Re: BIDEN AND THE BIG GOVERNMENT SOCIALISTS' COST-OF LIVING CRISIS

Politically you have no actual left wing parties. On the scale, both are right wing, that's why you don't have universal healthcare. And that's why, instead of political debate, you have tribalism. You don't discuss policies, you argue about who is in power not what can be done with it to help people.

Re: I have a DeWalt drill like this

My dad's go to drill is a corded Black and Decker hammer drill from 1989, that still works no problems whatsoever.
Before that he had another Black and Decker drill from the 1970's but that wasn't a hammer drill.

Re: MA Power Cos Announce 64% Electricity Price Hike Effective Nov 1

Putin's war is causing price rises all over the world, including here in the UK.

Our electricity prices have soared too.
