Wow Can you Believe that? A bunch pieces of worthless paper with a pile of Senseless scrible on it gets tossed in the garbage (where it belongs) and burned with the rest of the trash and someone gets their undies in a bunch about it......

It is what it is!
How's the CNG initiative coming in Utah? Did they decide to tax it heavily yet?

Very cool McBear.
Watched the bikers descend on DC again this year. 1/2 million of em , from the Fox News report.
I meet up with my good friend tomorrow and call the others, and we may attend the parade. A big deal here. I can't deal with the memorial speeches and the Honor Guard at the local Vet Park, so I won't attend that.
Enjoy!

No but in many areas if the "System" is not a certifided one ($10,000 to $15,000) your car will not be allowed to pass inspection.... So the CNG kits are pretty much out because at $3.000 to $5,000 there is not big money there to pay off the right bastards...

Are you trying to start a CNG conversion biz? You just found out how the big boyz control the monopoly?

Sorry guys I have been traveling.

Welcome to the Holy Land. Why are you here?

Anyway, McBear, Drewprof, et al. You are actually wrong about the issue just being semantics.

The General Order 1B prohibits proselytizing but it does not prohibit the evangelizing on off duty hours or the sharing of personal private gifts. That is from a JAG officer

Turns out you are wrong all around.

As expected from the EPA strong arm, MLBR!
I am hoping Utah can ride it out, and set the precedence! You guys are the test bed, you know!
Considered doing a conversion here and running dual fuel. We don't get tested prior to 1996. Not yet profitable when you still have no infrastructure. Filling up at home is fine, at less than a $1.00 a (comparable) gallon, but the "Phill" unit and $3K conversion make it excessive.

Then please scurry over to Afghanistan and tell the Commander that he was full of shit and made an error and your JAG is smarter than him and his corp of JAGs that interpreted this from the Pentagon before action was taken.

Please go back and read GO-1B. Section 2 Prohibited Activities a.- l. do not in any way discern between on duty and "off-duty hours". As an example, just above k. Proselytizing of any religion, faith or practice is j. Adopting as pets or mascots, caring for, or feeding any type of domestic or wild animal. Note that there is no caveat regarding "off-duty hours" on that one either. You need to find a better JAG source, maybe even one who has actually READ GO-1B.

Again, it just looks like you are defending the breaking of military rules. Rules that were set up to protect folks like you and me and every other soldier who pulls on boots when we are/were in harm's way.

McBear,
Kentucky

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
