I wanted the truck so I could haul material or debris while leaving the trailer onsite. The combined weight of the truck and trailer will be over the 10,001 lbs limit and require DOT numbers. I know about inspection requirements but what about fees and insurance requirements? I have commercial vehicle insurance but I will have to up my weight for policy ratings. Is it worth it to have...

    Taqiyah: The practice of concealing one’s beliefs and foregoing ordinary religious duties when under threat of death or injury. — www.thereligionofpeace.com/Quran/011-taqiyya.htm IN THE ISLAMIC FAITH, deception, either Taqiyah or Kitman — in Islamic jurisprudence, the art of making ambiguous or deceptive statements — is permitted under certain very specific circumstances. It is the political form of Taqiyah to which I refer when I say that such lying without embarrassment or repercussion has become a too-often-used tool — indeed, the de facto policy — of the left. Several recent examples serve to confirm this:

    The Left doesn’t care about gay rights, any more than they care about civil rights, welfare rights, minority rights, animal rights or any other “rights.” According to the Left, “the issue is never the issue; the issue is always the revolution.” The various “rights” the Left has aggressively promoted over the years are merely vehicles to advance the Left’s power. ~~ The Left uses “rights” agendas to wrap itself in the mantle of righteousness and seize the moral high ground, tactically putting us on the defense in the process. But they couldn’t care less about the actual issue except in...

Nonetheless, this does not mean we turn off our brains and simply accept the pronouncements of those sounding the alarm and offering their remedies. I am a global warming skeptic (to say the least) specifically because I have thought through the issue and the claims of the alarmists just don’t add up. What follows is my thinking and what it is that has led me to conclude that global-warming is a leftist farce which is being perpetuated for both financial and political reasons.

    The United States Supreme Court may soon liberate the biblically conservative church from old "prejudices" that should have long ago been "jettisoned," forcing it into "rightly bowing to the enlightenments of modernity," in the words of a recent writer in The New York Times. Homosexuality must be removed from the "sin list" and, according to an MSNBC commentator, traditional marriage proponents must be forced "to do things they don't want to do." Sadly, this crusade will be like the Marxist "liberation" movements that promised to "free" people, but really were about control and suppression. The culmination may come as the...

To that romance which those who sat at the feet of Old School commies feel for the Worker’s Paradise of the former USSR. Sure, there was garden variety incompetence and intellectual bankruptcy but when you staff you administration with academics that is baked in. And, of course, they wanted to prove ‘we are not George Bush’. But mostly, I thought, they were laboring under the naive misconception that Russia was anything other than a rapacious, nuclear armed, kleptocracy. I was...

    With America fixated on all things Bruce Jenner and the anticipation around his Diane Sawyer interview Friday night on ABC, it seemed an interesting moment to revisit another time when he captured this country’s attention. In 1978, Jenner snagged one of the sports world’s biggest honors: appearing on the Wheaties cereal box. While this might not sound impressive in today’s era of multi-million dollar endorsement deals, back then it was one of the ultimate prizes for a top athlete. A lot of people know Jenner today from his relationship to the Kardashian clan. But decades ago, he became a national...

The photo, captioned "trading places" was posted by the couple two months ago, but didn't hit viral status until several LGBT-focused sites picked up the portrait. The couple says they've been blown away by the outpouring of attention and support.

    Happy birthday, Glen Campbell! The singer was born on this day, April 22, in 1936. Campbell was born the seventh of 12 children to John Campbell, a sharecropper, and his wife Carrie. After his uncle, known as “Boo,” taught Campbell to play the guitar as a child, the future star relocated to Albuquerque, N.M., as a teenager, to play in his uncle’s band. In 1958, Campbell formed his own band, the Western Wranglers, and in 1960, he relocated to Los Angeles to become a session musician. Campbell’s debut album, Big Bluegrass Special, was released in 1962 on Capitol Records, but...

Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez was allowed in August 2013 to remain in the U.S., following his request about seven months earlier to stay under the president's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez. Rodriquez acknowledged in a letter to a top Republican senator that Rangel-Hernandez's application was approved, even though a federal crime database...

The footage showed the dogs dying in agony after being injected in Shiraz, capital of Fars province. It was filmed by animal activists who alleged that the people who killed the dogs were paid $4 (£2.70) for each animal they injected with acid. After the video circulated on social media, protesters gathered outside Shiraz's provincial department of environmental protection, demanding punishment for the killers, news agency IRNA reported.

    When oil prices recover—and plenty of analysts think the climb back up will start soon—Canada’s western frontier of Saskatchewan and neighboring Alberta will ‘still have the edge’, according to a report from TD Economics. Depressed oil prices may have skewed the view from Canada’s oil-producing west, but this will be one of the better places to bet on the oil rebound. Saskatchewan remains the last highly accessible onshore North American oil frontier and it is home to part of the prolific Williston Basin. And as the industry gears up for the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference (WBPC) on 28 April, the...

Lilly Pulitzer is not fashion. It is clothes. The classic Lilly Pulitzer dress comes in shrill shades of yellow and pink that are vaguely infantilizing. They are clothes that can be shrunk down and worn by 7-year-old girls without changing a single design element — if there were actual design elements to change. But there are not.

But critics slammed the announcement, arguing that the FEC’s mission is to regulate campaign spending, not get to the root of who chooses to run for office.

Sure enough, the NYT has reverted to PC, and the article is now titled "6 Minnesotans Held in Plot to Join ISIS". Who poses more of a terrorist threat -- non-Somali Minnesotans or non-Minnesotan Somalis in America? Since the answer is the latter, the original NYT headline was the right one. But the media does not want people to notice certain patterns.

The idea of creating specialized units for the “softer” combat routine of patrolling and observation along peaceful borders, so as to let the fighting combat battalions spend more time training, is not a bad one, he opined. “But it also means that...

    Automakers are supporting provisions in copyright law that could prohibit home mechanics and car enthusiasts from repairing and modifying their own vehicles. Allowing them to continue to fix their cars has become "legally problematic," according to a written statement from the Auto Alliance, the main lobbying arm of automakers. The dispute arises from a section of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act that no one thought could apply to vehicles when it was signed into law in 1998. But now, in an era where cars are rolling computing platforms, the U.S. Copyright Office is examining whether provisions of the law that...

The forecast for the single-issue "Archie vs. Sharknado" mash-up calls for the fearsome fish to rain down just as the students of Riverdale High start summer break. "It's Sharknado, people will die," "Sharknado 3" director Anthony C. Ferrante, who penned the comic, told The Daily News, "And if we tell the story really...

    2017 will see the end of FM Radio in Norway, as the European country has set a date for the switch-off of their FM radio stations. The Norwegian parliament set the stage for the end of the broadcast spectrum’s use in 2011 with the digitization mandate issued by the Storting. The shut down of the FM bands will be implemented region by region. The Ministry of Culture in Norway made the decision public on Thursday, bringing the end of FM radio broadcasting in the country.

    One day in March 2010, Isak McCune started clearing his throat with a forceful, violent sound. The New Hampshire toddler was 3, with a Beatles mop of blonde hair and a cuddly, loving personality. His parents had no idea where the guttural tic came from. They figured it was springtime allergies. Soon after, Isak began to scream as if in pain and grunt at his parents and peers. When he wasn’t throwing hours-long tantrums, he stared vacantly into space. By the time he was 5, he was plagued by insistent, terrifying thoughts of death. “He would smash his head into...

    There is something very disquieting occurring in American politics today. Most dramatically, the Democratic Party is offering a candidate who is a moral cesspool filled with lies and a history of behavior that would render anyone unthinkable for the highest office in the land. Something is very wrong when Hillary Clinton is, at this point, the only candidate for President the Democrats will be able to vote for and, worse, an estimated 47% of them will vote for her.
  • Looking for an outdoor nature microphone

    I am trying to set up a system for my bedridden and hard of hearing aunt so that she can hear her beloved chimes in her backyard. The chimes are heavy mothers. Has anyone set up a system in their backyard to hear birds and sounds of nature and piped it into their house? I ordered and tried a product called Nature's Window NW3 monitor. I sent it back as it had a defect and for $350 probably had about $50 worth of electronic parts. On the internet I found lots of microphones and naturist setups geared for recording purposes....

    Having as few as five sips of water an hour while driving is equivalent to being over the drink drive limit. Drivers make more than twice as many mistakes when they are just mildly dehydrated, according to new research. The study revealed that drivers who had only had 25ml of water an hour made more than double the number of mistakes on the road than those who were hydrated - the same amount as those who have been drink driving.
