I truly cannot understand what the issue is with the transgenders and the bathrooms. If you look like a man go in the men's room, if you look like a woman go in the woman's room. I mean a toilet is a toilet, the stalls nowadays all have doors on them, go in there and do what you have to do. . . why is legislation necessary? It frustrates me that the democrats take up an issue like this and run with it. The end result being that a lot of hardworking folks out in the American heartland end up voting against their own economic self-interest because they're worked up over non-issues like this.
As for me, well I've been travelling quite a bit this summer. I hate to post from my phone because I tend to be long-winded and trying to use that miniature touch screen keyboard is a royal P.I.T.A. Also, I know I tend to be one to make off-topic comments. Although I've had a lot to say lately, most of it isn't car related, strictly speaking, so I figured I'd just lay low for a while.
I suppose I could start a thread about how I'm getting better than expected mileage from my new Mirage, in contrast to Mitsubishi's "scandal" over falsifying MPG data, but now I've got to take time to figure out how this new forum format works.
P.S.- There are a LOT of things going on in the world that make me think the world is passing me by, I wish we could discuss some of them here but they're not car-related (as I've often stated, this is a rare place where an intelligent discussion can be had)
My favorite quote lately is from Geo H.W. Bush, "It looks like I'm getting old at just the right time."
To tie it back in to cars and transportation, if I had the money, I'd buy a little motorhome and a boat and spend the rest of my days travelling around to museums, caves, parks, giant balls of twine, and exploring lakes rivers and bays all over the country. I'd be perfectly content to sit in my proverbial rocking chair and let the world pass me by. Unfortunately I''m not old enough or rich enough to do that, so I've got to re-invent myself and get back out there and carve out a place for myself in an ever more complicated, dysfunctional, overcrowded, and depleted world.
