    I don't miss living in the city, back when cars actually had keys I never took them out of the ignition, I haven't locked my house in 20 years.

    Well said. I’ve actually never had to worry about it ever. It was a big wake up call and I’m actually moving not because of this, but it sped the process up some. I added 3 cameras on the house when it had never crossed my mind before.

    Know what’s funny? Truck was unlocked and the keys sitting on the center console. They still busted the ignition with a screw driver. They were so accustomed to stealing this particular year range and make of truck that they didn’t even look around. Smh.

    I tracked down who stole it, he was from the city and had setup a chop shop in an old horse barn out here in the country. Thankfully he’s in jail right now from other theft charges. Sheriffs were worthless in my case.

    Efficient operators make more money, because the FSC is calculated on a base fuel economy of typically 5MPG. If you get better than 5, it's money in your pocket.

    Probably just China preparing for tariff free exports starting tomorrow. I have no doubt that the CCP is very happy about now, as well as all of the politicians getting wealthy selling out our country to them.

    It should not be so easy for some to undo the efforts in which so many others believed.
