We can think about things, read about things, see videos about things. But that doesn’t mean we know how to do those things. Until we actually do them, we don’t know the nuances or tricks involved.

case in point:

I wanted to upgrade my fog lights from factory to a better more powerful aftermarket set (Diode Dynamics SS3 pro amber, if you are curious). I watched several how to videos, read a bunch of how-tos, etc. I “knew” how to do it, and could describe the process like an expert.

except, every single write up and video skipped a couple of things.

first, on one side there is one additional cover over the light that needs to be removed. It was a major pain to deal with it from under the vehicle.

the other was how difficult it was to get the hex key in to tighten the lights down after properly aiming them.

neither one of those things would be obvious or even a consideration until you actually had to deal with them.

you cannot always anticipate how difficult something can be until you actually do it.

nothing about the install was technically difficult, or other than tightening bolts and plugging in a harness.

but there were challenges nonetheless.

without actually doing, you don’t know.
The alignment of thoughts, words, and deeds is a bridge to greatness. - I couldn't help getting a little philosophical.

Then there are folks.
And I don't know who to credit this to.
Probably the first person to overhear an ancient committee meeting or something similar.
"When all is said and done. More is said than done."
If I had my way that ought to be inscribed in Latin on the floor of the House and Senate.
But I think I know someone who it also fits. In fact 2-3 people.
At least the Jan. 6 committee is getting something done. "When all is said and done. Trump will be doing time wishing he had never said anything."

Well the Democrats are masters of BS and smoke and mirrors and the likes of Mitch "the turtle" Mcconnell are happy to felch it all out of them.
"Masters of BS and smoke and mirrors," you just described the Republican Party. Criminals often attempt to project their deficiencies upon their victims. Republicans have made projecting their deficiencies upon the Democrats a national pasttime. But enough already about politics. Firearms are much more interesting.

Whatever, and I don't need any satanic prayers thank you very much.
I don't vote for people who worship at the alter of Molech with unborn children.
Nor those who pay homage to Marx, Lenin, Mao or Che'.
Wow! So you vote for Russian puppets? Good luck with that. The prayers of a righteous man will availeth much, expect things to turn around for you. You're welcome.

I used to be very politically driven and vocal, but one benefit of my personal world being so totally screwed for the last several years now is that I genuinely, absolutely, don't care about the politics and headlines of the day anymore. I don't care about Biden, I don't care about Trump, I don't care about Justin Trudeau, and I don't care about Whoopi Goldberg. I don't even care who wins the super bowl. It's liberating.
I'm a former US Army Military Intelligence Officer, ignorance is not bliss.

I think you may need to look in the mirror and think about it. One party has been historically anti gun and anti Christian. It isn’t the GOP.

one party has been anti law and order, it is not the GOP

one party broke the laws repeatedly in the last election cycle and sued to prevent audits and recounts.

one party made up Russian collusion to impeach a sitting President. Every single allegation has been proven to be false.

one party was burning down cities and targeting the police, it wasn’t the GOP.

unless you’re Muslim, your party doesn’t want you praying.
One party and its minions are infected with the deceit of fascism, the other was voted into the White House by America.

funny thing, several of the instigators have been identified as federal agents. If you watched any of the proceedings, you saw homeland refuse to say anything about how many feds were involved with it.

one person was killed for no good reason, she was within a few feet of police in full riot gear. They didn’t see her as a threat.

I get it it, you’re a rabid anti trumper….
I get it, you're a rabid anti American....

Trump was harder on Russia than any President in a long, long time. Biden caved in and gave Putin everything he wanted. The Puppet wasn't Trump - if you were even slightly educated on it, you'd know every single charge was shown to be false. There never was any Russian Collusion. The Steele Dossier - which people are starting to go to jail for, was a complete fabrication.

Never said I was ignorant. I said I was apathetic.

I've survived every president from John F Kennedy to Donald Trump, and I figure I'll survive Biden. My wife has terminal stage-4 cancer and has been doing mini chemo every 12 hours for over three years. She just came home from half a month in the hospital on Saturday. The last time I helped load her into an ambulance, she was hurting so bad she just kept saying, "No more. I can't do this anymore", over & over. So I genuinely don't care about a lot of things that fill up the airwaves nowadays. I care about doing as much good as possible - with the understanding that my definition of good and evil changed the day they told us her cancer was inoperable and terminal. Simply put, if something makes her smile, it's good. If it makes her sad, it's evil. And as long as I have her, I don't expect that to change.

If it makes me a bad citizen, so be it. I've been a good, involved citizen for decades, paying taxes and voting every time I was given the chance. Temporarily, until she either is gone or is miraculously healed, that 'good, involved citizen' activity absolutely takes a back seat.
Prayers for your wife. Both of you hang in there!

ha haha ha haha ha haha haha ha, I wonder why the Democrats sued everybody to stop the audits of the last election? I wonder why ballots were destroyed illegally? I wonder why the Biden administration is asking the courts to block the report on the Dominion voting machines from being released....

but whatever.
I wonder why you continually regurgitate this nonsense. It is ruining your credibility. You're gonna have to wake-up eventually, why not now?
