Hank Watson's Garage Hour - Cars, Trucks, Beers & Guns

Balls that bounce are great, but GM recalling 50-70,000 Bolts aint.  Also, when you have lemons, don't make terrorists lemonade.  ...Unless you're a fool, in which case you gift-wrap that lemonade in $85billion of the finest military hardware on Earth.  Geeks like military hardware, so we'll talk about it.

There's other bouncing madness: even though fundamentalist cavemen get mountains of rifles and ammo courtesy of your tax dollars, you're about to be blocked from buying Russian bullets (first time Joke Biden blocked anything from Russia).

The next time you wander into the kitchen in your torn boxers, are the 'fridge and toaster watching you?  ...And who's watching them?  How about when you pair your car's "infotainment" system with your phone?  "Smart" homes and cars appeal to a lot of stupid people because you can be really bright but still dumb enough not to realize that if you're not managing all that unwelcome tech in your life, someone else will.  Unphone, bitches!

The Gearhead Consultancy wants to help.  Faraday-caged homes, phone boxes, historic examples of spying, modern examples of hacking risks and car-control death - it's a scary data forest out there, and you're in it.

...Because driving ain't about being able to afford a car, and being skilled ain't because you showed up - motoring fails are not what you think, but you should have thought of that.  The Garage Hour goon squad - with Mr. Intolerant and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort - does a little dance with why car accidents are up, and the whys aren't what they were (ahem, the road is in the real world).

While we're at it, there's cat versus squirrel (the cat lost), FJs in Ramona, street racing in the 'Springs, Hank Hill versus Homer Simpson, and Cut Chemist.

Want to do your thing, and geek out on fast cars, fine beer, crawly trucks and bangy guns?  Like doing stuff that's not "approved" by the woketards?  If you don't stand up for your right to do your thing, "your thing" could go from "out there" to "illegal" under cover of the Trojan corpse in the White House and his band of unmoored zealots.  To borrow a term, it's time to fight for your right to party (however you do so).  The Gearhead Consultancy took a few minutes to help understand why bad (Big) gov't is wrong - and will take away your rights.

You should be mad.  The idiots in DC want breathalyzers in all cars, are desperate to track you wherever you go, and to ban you from taking your car to the track.  It's time to geek up and start punching back.
