or too corrupt to care?
Journal News publisher Janet Hasson has an armed guard on her front door; she just doesn't like peasants having their own guns.
About damn time someone in Congress said 'impeachment'.
Ah, the wonders of the new refrigerant: expensive as hell and can kill you with fire.
Enter Daimler AG. The automaker created a head-on collision test with a
B-Class at their Sindelfingen test track that would lead to the
pressurized refrigerant being sprayed on the engine. The result in 20 out of 20 test[s] was that the refrigerant burst into flames as soon as it hit the hot engine... Another unexpected result of the R-1234yf test was the
release of hydrogen flouride, a chemical far more deadly to humans than
hydrogen cyanide, emitted in such amounts that it that turned the
windshield white as it began to eat into the glass.
I'm reminded of the Greenpeace-endorsed refrigerator; used butane or some other flammable gas as the refrigerant. Wouldn't freeze anything, wouldn't chill all that well either, and if the system leaked could blow your house up.
OGAM has a list of the businesses that met with Biden and his 'Let's ban guns but not say it outright' committee, and contact information:
Just like it has been suggested that we call Walmart and express our concerns
lest they think it is in their best interest to screw gun owners, I'd
suggest we call the rest of the retailers on this list. If Schumer can
contact these companies, then there is no reason that we as consumers
shouldn't as well. I have assembled contact information for all of these
companies as well as other relevant information.
When you call be respectful and polite but be firm in your stance. You
don't need to argue but merely state your case. Make sure the company
knows that you'll refuse to do business with them in the future if they
cave to pressure from the Obama Administration on guns. This is
different than a corporate decision decides to stop selling a product
due to the profit margins.

made just for them by Troy Defense. I would suggest calling the corporate offices and letting them know what you think of their corporate cowardice.
