Is there no end to racism in sports?
There was some interest in my comments about the new Ford Bronco, and while it has its own appeal and in due time, I may buy one, my preference would be for Ford to roll back the clock, with a few modern twists to an old favorite.
Drop a modern diesel engine into the Bronco. Add a second fuel tank because you can’t have enough fuel. There has been a lot of safety innovation since the first Broncos rolled off the assembly line and I’d welcome that, a better sound system, maybe even better seats. Big steel bumpers front and back with a beefy swing arm to hold the spare tire on behind. You don’t need the foo-foo, and don’t pretend that it will fit in well in a mall parking lot (it won’t).
Ok, is it good enough, yes. Could it be better, yes. You need all terrain 8 ply tires and big, sharp steel bumpers front and back. I’d favor a turret with a SAW on it, remotely controlled from inside, but that’s me, Mr. Overkill.

A Cashless Society?
There is a big move in Congress (as a component of the Green New Deal) to eliminate currency. All monetary value would be moved through credit card. There are big advantages to a government anxious to control you.
-All transactions can be taxed.
-If you fall out of favor, your ability to buy and sell can be eliminated with a computer keystroke.
-If your balance is too high, numbers can be changed with a computer keystroke. Then again, if you’re a member of a privileged class, funds can also be added with a keystroke.
There is no downside from the government perspective.
