  1. Had one when I was a kid. I flat wore out the loader in the sandbox and eventually took it off. Still have the tractor, though it would make southern tractors look good.
  2. The sad part is that in another 101 years that Mogul will still be running and the CIH will have been left for dead for 80 years because of the electrical issues/parts availability.
  3. I love coming to brand specific forums and reading "brand x vs. brand y" discussions. It's like being back in school in the locker room with the boys arguing "nuh uh, mine's bigger but you can't see it".
  4. Sorry, I don't support the erosion of liberties for 327,000,000 people because something happened to a third of a percent of the population. Policies based on emotion tends to erode rights.
  5. Do you happen to know any lazy deadbeats that never used drugs? I'll let you take a guess to what percentage of drug users vs. non users that I happen to know. Hint: one group size is much larger than the other.
  6. Probably because the fear mongering about drugs is largely overblown and people aren't listening to the old drug warriors anymore. The scare tactics our parents and DARE officers used were shown to be over the top, kind of like how Santa wouldn't bring us presents if we misbehaved.
  7. Wait, I was under the impression that pot was illegal. Why didn't the law against its' use stop the use???? (probably for the same reason that a border wall won't stop drugs)
  8. Meth, cocaine and heroin all had legitimate uses a hundred years ago, albeit due to questionable medical knowledge. Think about it logically - when you were a kid, I bet you did some questionable things before you were legally allowed to drink. Wasn't it cool to hang out with your friends and drink that 6 pack your buddy "acquired"? What happened to that same excitement when you were old enough to walk into a bar and order what you wanted at any time? I bet you weren't so eager to go out and get crazy, eh? It's simple economics. When demand is constant and a product is readily available, prices go down. When there's a demand, there's competition. Competition leads to lower prices and higher quality. You as a businessman want to gain an advantage over your competitors by providing a quality product at an affordable price. What do you think that does to the Mexican cartels? They have few options - a) demand for previously illegal product is lower b) prices are lower c) customers demand higher quality d) no monetary incentive to participate in an extreme high risk business. Would you risk death trying to provide a product that's now legal and worth a fraction of what it once was?
  9. Realistically, the answer is to legalize ALL drugs. I don't mean do what CA and CO is doing with cannabis and taxing them so much that the black market is still strong. I mean no laws, no taxes, no regulations (unless sold from a storefront, then maybe some warning labels or something). It's not a hard concept. Flood the market with quality product, then where's the incentive for violence and high risk? Why would a Mexican cartel go to such lengths to move product if their buyers can just get what they want locally for cheaper? It's a fact that laws don't stop people from doing bad things. If you want proof of concept, look towards Portugal.
  10. Well CLEARLY the answer is to build a big beautiful wall! If at first you don't succeed, keep doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over........
