  1. There are two kinds of checking, one is a probable general idea, the other costs money but keeps you from just throwing parts at it. If you use the chain stores google that code with symptoms and make model of vehicle, look at what other people have experienced, usually works ok. Spend a couple of hundred and a mechanic hooks it to a ten thousand dollar piece of equipment and narrows it down real quick.

  2. So wife driving 60mph north on hwy 101/113 this morning, pcso in marked cruiser following less than recommended space. He crosses double yellow and hits his blue lights, passes her turns lights off and continued to accelerate, within a half mile he is beyond her sight as the road straightens over the creek. She figured he turned somewhere until she catches back up at old Yorkville, where she seen him do the same to the car he was behind. And yet another criminal gets to do whatever they choose to do, while a third grader gets handcuffed around his biceps. What a country. Thank god every one knows about Cecil the lion. We'd be in serious trouble otherwise.

  3. I hope none of you that are making assumptions consider yourself Christian. Think the savior acted the same towards others. If you are so worried about what a plight these people cause your wonderful county then give them all you have. You people kill me with the rhinking that homeless people are such a burden or are all a bunch of scam artists. I want the shriners to stop messing up intersections. They only give about 1% to the hospital that is donated anyways. But since half of You crying about vagrants are mason you don't see a double standard.

  4. Ok EZ, you break the law you pay the penalty correct? Why are so many police officers let off with warnings when they break the law. The ones that are charged with a crime are let off with such minimal punishment if found guilty. Very few people do not break some law everyday. My neighborhood has at least a dozen law enforcement officers within it and yet cars speed in excess of 15 miles an hour and run stop signs. Not only is it overlooked by the LEO residents they themselves are guilty of it. I believe their lack of enforcing laws is a violation of their oath.


    I'll stop having a problem with the police when they start doing their jobs and not targeting the easy targets.

  5. Alright, enough African American white black crap. I agree that if Bruce can be a girl then white can be black and vice versa. As a matter of fact I don't consider myself white or Caucasian, I am an American, that is my race. I fill that in on the other category. I had a white friend who was African American. His father was from south Africa and mother from the states. He was whiter than me in terms of shades of skin color. All this racial divide is brought to you by a bunch of media and government types. You can't have your cake and eat it too. Think I feel sick hearing people argue injustice and other cheap excuses because how their life is screwed up. Stop looking for an out people. Be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

  6. Screw a thin blue line. Right is right, wrong is wrong. No one is above the law, no one should be given a pass because of their job. No one, not one dang person. Otherwise what is good for the goose is good for the gander. TP I admire your firm dedication to your beliefs. I know we both can agree that cops do what they want because they carry a piece of pot metal around. They don't carry official id, just a department issued card. Bet you nine out of ten wore their uniform in their drivers license picture too. Like a group of high school bullies most of them are. And they cry foul so much it is sickening. They think that that their weapons makes them the law. Wish they'd understand that to enforce the law they need to abide by the law.

  7. To hell with it, let the police have m4's with m203's attached. Give each precinct a predator drone and a squadron of ah64's. We trust them so much don't we. For real crime prevention lets let the police use mines and tanks. Why the hell not, right? I mean if they don't go to far as it is, and it is all the suspects fault than if they get killed from depleted uranium or armor piercing 20mm ammunition from ge gatlin guns so be it. Arm then cops properly. They can serve justice up real good then.

  8. E Z, you keep buying those Chinese products though don't you? Let me tell you about my Union, I make 29.90 an hour on my check, I have another 20 or so dollars for a package. The package includes, pension, retirement, and health benefits. I have to work 10 years to be vested for retirement, and that is accumulating 1700 work hours annually. To gain full retirement I must have 30 years of service plus my age equaling 95. I get 7 days off a year without needing to request. Any day I miss is without pay. No vacation, no sick days, or pto. To get this I had to start at 10 dollars an hour without benefits, and got an annual 10 percent raise an hour until topping out. I received over 5000 hours of classroom instruction plus twice that of ojt. I can be laid off at anytime. Tenure does not exist in my local. So you might think that unions are all about sucking the life from the companies but I get eight hours pay for my eight hours work. Oh yeah I get a 20 minute morning break paid and a thirty minute unpaid lunch. And yes my training is superior to any non union plumber. That I know. You doubt it then put your money where your mouth is. I can install any type plumbing system ever thought of, by myself. With that being said, I am the cheapest plumber you'll ever meet. I give free advice at your local home depot when I see a customer in need. E Z, you make blanket statements without knowing facts. Next time you want to bash a group you might need to find a Union carpenter to build you something to stand on.

  9. El zorro, you can buy what you want, employ whom you want, hire those that make you happy, I prefer to stay true to the Red, White, and Blue. I drive a Toyota Tacoma, built in Texas. Could have bought a Union made vehicle from a Union state. My wife refused me the Ford raptor, so the Tacoma was my next choice. You see I wouldn't buy something where the labor was not paid for a fair days work. Don't think I like the idea of someone getting rich while forgetting those that made it possible.

  10. While some believe that unions are no longer needed and have served their purpose, others believe our nation's nuclear weapons program should be done away with. How many believe both things are antiquated ideas? Thought I'd throw that out there.


    I still see the need for both. As a wage earner I know that those of us on the bottom will only survive with unity, that is where strength comes from. People bash what the upper echelons of unions make but fail to say anything about what their non union big company execs make. The big difference is I have a better chance of running a Union than I do a retail giant.


    While there may be laws to protect workers rights, there are also laws that forbid this and that and all types of stuff, you think the government gives a crap. Not unless they feel obligated to out of the strength of numbers. I support my economy and hate that everyone blames union pay scales on companies outsourcing work to other countries. That is from those anti union government laws. Loop holes just to keep the fat fatter and the working man paying for everyone.



    I like my union, stand by my union, and for the anti union, when you can't feed your family because all our countries jobs are given to people for next to nothing you can thank the man in the mirror.


    Stay United

    Built American.

    Buy American.

    My dollar is for my country.

  11. Umm, maybe my sentence structure could have been better. Non union companies love illegals. Unions love legals. Clearer now? Go call mitzi from sundial, she wants to do away with plumbing licenses in Georgia so that she can use illegals.

  12. Well I hope he can truly go fuc? himself now. I have zero care what he looks like as a transsexual guy or the rest of the people that think they are trapped inside of the wrong sex. Sissies every one of em. Think I'd like to drink a six pack of alpha male with my buddies while watching a herd of Chihuahuas chew on the candy butts of all these crazies.

  13. For you open shop boys, yeah my training is not just better it is the best. The big corporations know it hence we get the work. We have standards that exceed local and state standards. Our safety program for the United Association of pipefitters, welders, plumbers, service technicians and sprinkler fitters is the best. Two thirds of Atlanta has been built by us the IBEW or the the sheet metal workers. When I walk on a construction site and there are non union subs, I know that my chances of being injured has dramatically increased. We may not be perfect but we are better than any other.


    As for the government unions well they are government workers. The elected or the hired can definitely be improved upon. And guess what I can be fired just as quick as any non union employee. We are taught to make our company money so that we can continue to feed our family. A fair days pay for a fair days work.


    Before you bash unions get your facts straight people. You read one headline and it becomes the gospel. Keep believing that the people in power give a crap about you. The minute they can stick it to you they will. Look at the industries that will higher under qualified or illegal workers to cut their overhead, they care about their pockets, and do whatever they can to line them. Don't believe it, look at the next road being paved, or at the next school lawn in this county being cut. Yeah Kelly landscape uses illegals that have not had a background check to maintain county land including elementary schools.

  14. For my training, I received over ten thousand hours of classroom and ojt training before I was considered a journeyman. There is no part of the pipe trades industry that I was not trained in. From learning about the differences in types of pliers to industrial rigging, to installing medical gas systems. I was required to learn welding, as well as backflow prevention. I was trained not just to glue or solder pipe, but how to interpret every type of blueprint, from site work to finish, including electrical, structural, civil, and every other craft that is included. The union contractors build the big projects. Your power houses, both of your new stadiums, 9 out of ten of your healthcare facilities. Damn near anything that could destroy or create major problems for an entire community. Look around at these retail shops that have issues with their buildings from day one and then look at your new hospital in Hiram, or kennestone, or emory or piedmont, or how about northside, or your children's healthcare of Atlanta, or wait for it, the Baxter bioscience, your nuclear power houses. You see even the big corporations know they get what they pay for. You see my training is superior and shortcuts are not taught. The only way is the right way.
