    I'm sure it works a damned sight better than any new four-wheeler electric sold in the U.S. because legally, it's a motorcycle. Therefore, no air bags, no monster bumpers that absorb jogging-speed impacts, no side door guard beams, no... Well, the list is very long. But those three items have already saved somewhere between 500 and 1000 pounds.

    Most transmissions use Gears.. and though they have not released any Specs,, some can be deduced.. It is ALL Wheel Drive. Shift points are Artificially Software generated,, to the 4 independent motors. Likely Hub Motors. (could use 2 motors and a drive axle, but I think 4 with Performance in mind) Just as the sound is artificially generated.

The protests are being planned through Telegram, which German authorities have previously tried and failed to ban.

    Brian Stelter out at CNN as network cancels media show 'Reliable Sources' Stelter had been with CNN since 2013 https://www.foxnews.com/media/brian-stelter-out-cnn-network-cancels-media-show-reliable-sources Brian Flood (18 August 2022) CNN is parting ways with "Reliable Sources" host and media pundit Brian Stelter, with his last show airing on Sunday. "CNN will end its ‘Reliable Sources’ program on Sunday, August 21st. As a result Brian Stelter will leave the company. We appreciate his contributions to the network and wish him well as he embarks on new endeavors," a CNN spokesperson told Fox News Digital. Stelter said in a statement to NPR that he was grateful for his time at CNN and the show's examination of the "media, truth and the stories that shape our world." A former New York Times reporter, he joined CNN in 2013 and took over the Sunday media affairs show at that time.

    They aren't so great at hauling freight. But I think they should be brought back for passenger service, for the same reason passenger trains were streamlined. No, not because steamers cut through the air better. As an employee of either the Union Pacific or the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy said to someone who was asking about the finer points of slicing through the air in 1934, streamlining wasn't about wind resistance. It was about reducing customer resistance. You aren't the only person who doesn't much ride trains, but just might if there was a steam-hauled sample handy. What this has to do with Dodges I'm sure I don't know. But I like to share that theory.

    These apologists don't seem to care about Congress. They don't even adhere to Nixon's, "If the president does it, then it's not illegal.". They figure that does apply, but only to Republican presidents.

    No, dannno, I'm not. It's a ridiculous straw man. I'm not questioning whether the president can declassify material, nor whether he (or she) should be able to. I'm merely asking a tree-falls-in-the-woods question. If he declassifies something and doesn't tell anyone, is it declassified? Do you believe in the rule of law or don't you? I hope you don't go around self-identifying as a libertarian, because you love power much too much. Either everyone in government goes on treating it as secret, which is yet another terrible waste of taxpayer money, or they try to guess what he declassified and let him choose who gets prosecuted or not. Why? Because he's the only person in the world who knows what is, and what is not. And what about historic research? Yes, you may research this history, and keep the citizenry informed. Only you can't, because no one knows that, and won't let you see it. There is no other point I can see to secretly making something not secret but to selectively entrap people. None. So, why are you fervently defending Trump's right to engage in entrapment?

    Oh? So every department with classified materials sent someone to help him pack? They knew what was carted out was declassified, but they knew not what was carried out. Therefore, they didn't know any of the things I suggested they just might need to know. Einstein. You're not even trying to think this through. You're just grasping at excuses for your golden calf.

    That depends on your point of view. Is a generator with its shaft connected to the flywheel a real transmission? Most gearheads say no, no. But any real railroader says yes, yes.

    That's what you get for promising to drain the swamp, and then going all swampy. He could have released stuff like that. He promised to release stuff like that. Instead, what? He wanted to set up his own blackmail network? He had his chance to cut the puppet strings and put the marionettes in jail, but instead he tried to grab the strings so they'd dance to his tune? The untouchable Alpha Very Stable Genius overreached, and failed. Not a selling point. Someone who couldn't foresee this move isn't even a competent checkers player.

    The thing we don't want to be the case any more is the rather obvious fact that even when they lose, they win. I'll let you in on a little secret: I vote a lot. I vote in every Republican primary. And after I've tried and failed to help Republicans put a conservative on the general election ballot, well? At that point, what's the point?

    So, let's declassify something and not tell anyone. Let's keep the fact that it's no longer secret a secret. I can't tell you if it's classified or not because whether it's classified is more classified than it is. What possible purpose could that serve but entrapment? That, or getting Chinese spies off the hook. Oh, I like this spy for China, so I'll say that hasn't been secret since I was president. But that one never gave me a bribe Christmas present so the fact that the secrets they gave to China aren't secret will remain my little secret. After all, nothing says Fiscal Responsibility like having thousands of federal employees guarding something they might as well email to Alex Jones. It's asinine.

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.
