MAN!! That stuff doesn’t fly here,,,,,,,,,,,, at least yet it doesn’t, but I am sure that it is coming.


Nearly every Lefty Liberal you find in mayors or higher are behind that "sanctuary" politics. Add the ultra lefty liberals of the US 9th Circuit Judges. They are overturned more than ALL other Circuits.

Sorry! Cheap shot!

( 80's diesel with an EGR valve!!, and STILL CONNECTED!! What next??)
Anywhere you fly along a coast you will see fog or clouds or ... smog. And during late spring into fall, you WILL have smog here (SoCal). I might add that smog used to be MUCH WORSE (pre 1990). The air improvent has occured in spite of the great increase in the number of cars and people. So ... I vote FOR most of the engine emission improvements and biennual car smog checks.

I would like to test the Datsun's EGR for NOx ... to see how much NOx really changes up or down compared to it's OEM in 1982. Remember ... for the Calif SD22 truck, the EGR label lowered the engine timing from 20° to 18°. Also, diesel fuel and engine oil has been reformulated compared to the forumulation back in 1982.

Here's a more typical smog of Los Angeles on the warm/hot periods. Remember ... I remember when it was much worse.

Of course ... from time to time "we" survive huge sage and dry tree FIRES. This is due (mostly) to creeps who deliberatly set fire brush not to mention bark beetles who kill trees. Shall I continue? :roll: :?

If you/they can have that designation where you “Can’t come in” then the door should be locked from the outside too and you "Can’t come out". "You want it? It's yours!!" Put up a wall to keep the outside out and the inside in and look after yourselves!!! I have never seen anything like this before!
Did you see this ONE MILLION Mexican march last summer '06, Los Angeles?

Or this bill board put up by a Mexican radio company? (notice a couple of young civilians hung over an American flag the next morning)

Have you seen this bill board around several states last year? This was on I-210 at I-605 Calif.

I've go more photos that I took MYSELF at Santa Ana last year. Anyone interested?

I had a response typed, and was about to submit it and I proof read it and was basically a rambling “Rant” about all sorts of things to do with immigration, political correctness and other such drivel, and I decided it’s best left to just say nothing, and to affirm that the system is really REALLY! Screwed up and leave it at that.

I see that your Datsun, and all diesels are exempt from the smog testing. Why do they not test the diesels? I know in Vancouver BC Canada the “Air Care” program tests all vehicles, diesels included.

Off-point: you responded with this when I said California, taken as a whole (pop. 33M) is not that crowded. The Sanctuary movement doesn't have anything to do with that.

SoCal isn't someplace I desire to live, it's too late to make it self-sustaining or even remotely close. But certainly there are relatively rural areas that are still nice. They're nowhere near LA, of course.

These have been the major reasons for bolting from southern CA to Oregon.

Al,
I tried to make a donation but I see it requires a credit card number, which I don't care to put on the 'net.
Do you have a snail mail address I could send a check to? And who should I make it out to?
Thanks,
Ray Mac

I left San Bernardino in 1992 for Crescent City, CA. 1997 I was done with that too and left for Portland then Vancouver.
Have still family there. Once a year I drive to San Bernardino.
My favored route, not the fastest but more interesting is this:
I-5 South to Mt. Shasta then Hwy89 and Hwy 44 to Susanville. There, I take Hwy 395 all the way down to I-15. I fuel up usually in Carson City. Nice drive, especially for a Diesel, not to many hills.

I go I-5 to 199, through Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in to CA, to Crescent City, then down 101 to 198, east to I-5 again, thence to South Pasadena to visit my father most Christmases.

The short but scenic Richardson Grove must be experienced. Though last year it looked as if the Vortex House etc. was being bypassed by some kind of bridge under construction?? Won't be the same (will be a lot less scary driving in winter storms in the dark though, as I've done many times).

SB, eh? I feel for you. I moved my Aunt out of Riverside (26 yrs) in 2001. She's in McKinleyville now. Humboldt county isn't so bad -- not compared to SB county!

Dad's the last of my relatives in SoCal. You couldn't pay me to live there now. But if Dad needs me . . . I'll be there.
