Good Morning! A quick update on the Portland (Maine) asylum seekers. This is now a full blown crisis. The Portland Expo will set up 350 cots and the University of Southern Maine has offered to open a dorm for up to 200 people. Neighboring towns have been asked to help,with no response. It will be interesting. The dumbass mayor is very excited about the new arrivals and looks forward to them becoming a part of the city.
Seriously,you have to have compassion for people who leave Africa and make their way thru Central America to arrive in the U.S. But the idiot politicians don't need to blah,blah about "it takes a village" when the logistics of receiving hundreds of people should be the first priority. Anyway,the state and federal officials are having a meeting tomorrow. City officials in Portland are already giving the neighboring communities and the state a guilt trip about the situation.

Didn’t the dems walk away from largish debts incurred by the 2012 convention in Charlotte?

Never heard about the 2016 convention in Philthy.

Captain Hate

So I can't just throw my damn fob in my pocket and forget about it, now I have to be concerned with *how* it rests in my damn pocket?

My Toyota had all that electronic crap put into the key as one of the "improvements" that I never asked for or wanted, and the car alarm would sometimes go off just the way you described. It did it one time too many and I threw the piece of shit against the garage wall which popped the guts out of it while still retaining the chip that matches what's in the car to let you start it. End of problem. So I have to manually unlock the doors and trunk. BFD.

RattlerGator

Thanks, all. AB, the fob does have an LED. I see no problems or issues there, tested it two houses down and across the street. LED blinked and it unlocked the doors. Second test and it opened the trunk.

This fob *is* slightly larger than my old Genesis fob so a case or protection of some sort from Fat Daddy's inadvertent sumpin' sumpin' may be in order.

I read that Duke Power took a big hit to their uncollectable account from those deadbeats. I hope the state commission made them eat it since they chose not to press the issue sufficiently.

Another Bob

OK RG, but did the trunk button require a noticeably lighter touch or shorter throw than the others before the LED flashed?

Yeah, CH, I've set off the panic button by mistake a few times. Maybe that *is* my fail-safe. But I have to admit, they've made me a slave to the convenience so I doubt if I want to entirely rid myself of the fob.

Tom R

How many people with an IQ higher than Forrest Gump believe Comey was trying to blackmail Trump?

The challenge as you and I and anyone else within an IQ higher than Forrest Gump knows is figuring out what is literal and what is deception

MJW,

Nice try but you need to keep wasting your time trying to find an example of where I used that analogy to insult anyone here at JOM that I disagreed with.

The first example is a question. The answer to the number of JOM posters it applies to is zero because IMO no one who posts here is so stupid that they would believe any member of the Obama criminal cabal (James Baker in this case) is telling the truth when it comes to their actions in Spygate.. That’s like believing Brennan, McCabe, Strzok etc are telling the truth.

The second one is a little trickier and I can see how you might think you got me on that one. Once again, I don’t think that applies to anyone here at JOM because AFAIK every poster here is a Trump supporter and Inthink every Trump supporter knows he uses deception to achieve his political goals. I suppose if there is someone here who takes Trump literally 100% of the time I owe them an apology for giving them the impression I think Forrest Gump is smarter than them.

The key FOBs on Mrs. Buckeye's Lexus came with a leather cover.

The covers make the buttons a bit more recessed.

Something like that for your FOB might help.

RG, I assume the car came with 2 fobs. Throw the 1st fob in the safe so its transmitter can't reach the car and use 2nd one for a while in the same fashion as you have become accustomed. See what happens.

You've had the car a year and this just started happening?

Anecdotally, there are two incidents in So Cal that I remember. One was garage doors mysteriously opening at odd ball times and the other was a rash of car alarms going off for no apparent reason.

In both cases it was traced to the military bases and certain frequencies they used.

Someone with a map figured out where these events were occurring.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

AB, I rate it a close call but I thought Vettell should have been penalized.
Hamilton would have clearly passed had Vettell not pushed him off track.
Had Vettell not gone off track and executed a maneuver like that he would surely have been penalized for blocking.
The question goes to whether intent is required. I don't think Vettell intentionally cut him off but "reentering safely" does not necessarily require intent. Drivers get penalized when impeding other cars even if they didn't see them.
It can also be argued he "gained an advantage". That usually means you can't cut a turn and gain a place, even if accidental. But in this case his going off surely meant he was going to lose a place. By reentering as he did he regained an advantage he lost when he left the track.
I have actually come to appreciate Vettell; modest and a good sport and very easy going off track, with none of Schumacher's corner cutting aggression/intentionally-take-a-guy-out-to-win-a-championship tactics on track.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate,

I believe that but do you have proof?

McCain was actively pushing the dossier for starters and not very many of the usual suspects seem interested in pursuing that.

Your second point (usual suspects not interested in pursuing it) carries more weight than McCain, whom I think was increasingly unhinged towards the end.

The alternative to the neocon's perpetual war machine is not putting our head in the sands of Arabia to get our ass shot off. It's keeping our powder dry until a truly dangerous and implacable enemy, like say Iran, needs to be set back a few hundred years by an intense and thorough defanging operation.

Tom R

Yeah... And who granted the interview to Stephanopoulos?

That interview was a perfect example of Trump's mastery of 4D Chess. He invited a Clintonista to conduct the interview and intentionally stated he would listen to what foreigners told him about political opponents. Predictably, that statement triggered the Democrats and Fake News into having a conniption fit. What they don't realize is that they got played by Trump and are now condemning Trump for something that Hillary, Schiff, and other Democrats are already known to have done themselves.

We will hear a lot of ranting and raving over the current news cycle condemning Trump for what he said and then Team Trump will counterpunch and point out the hypocrisy of all the Democrats who condemned Trump. He has already started that by tweeting about Schiff getting pranked by the Russian radio hosts and not reporting it to the FBI.

MissMarple2

Since I have heard no pings from texting or received any calls this morning, I am thinking my sister's car is a good bet.

It's just another kerfluffle, Tom r, now what his and his family and his associates have been through is something else.

Tom R

The unhinged libertarians and paleoconservatives are at least as bad as the progs when it comes to meeting Jeanne Kirkpatrick's blame-America-first test.

When I heard about the attack on the oil tankers the first thought that crossed my mind is that the paleocons will likely claim this is a false flag event that the US or Israel has conducted in order to trigger a war with Iran.

If Iran sinks a oil tanker full of oil will the Green Party environmentalist types demand they be punished for damaging the environment?
