I'm sorry to hear that. IMHO, none of the tractors in your fleet are
properly equipped to pull flatbed. -Dave

That's an illusion. The 'extremists' that you see fall pretty much within
a narrow band. However, they're loud and furious and generate a lot of
smoke and heat, so it looks like there's something going on, while in
actuality, the status quo is being maintained. The
'liberal'/'conservative' paradigm is actually a sybiosis: take away one
'side' and the other would cease to exist.

Forgive me for being concrete here, but there's no such thing as a
'partial truth'. It's an attempt to obfuscate and deceive, just the same.

concentrate power and wealth into the hands of a few, while maintaining
the happy illusion among the population that they, too, have power and
