Well, I used to own one. It caught fire and went up in massive flames on the side of the highway. Sad too, I had just put in fresh control arms and a couple thousand in other odds and ends. The 3.0 gas was nice, and it towed my trailer very well, an absolute beast in the snow. I'm here gathering info so I can build my dream project: a 2005 or 2006 X5 with euro spec diesel, mated to manual tranny. An X5 with three pedals is the dream. I wouldn't own one of these if I DIDN'T live in a snowy state.

I agree! And thatís one of the major reasons I converted mine to a Flex-Fuel vehicle. I refuse to get my dreams smashed by Biden.

I'm always baffled when lawmakers seek change by destroying jobs, in the hopes people will scramble into a better future outcome. Teslas are expensive and electricity is expensive, so you know what guys like me will do? Switch to diesels and use waste vegetable oil as fuel. I can run an old Mercedes 300D or VW 1.9L tdi indefinitely rather than shell out $40K for a subcompact laptop on wheels. My old '96 Passat tdi had an 18 gal tank and averaged 820 miles PER TANK. I easily drove from Michigan to Birmingham AL on a single tank. A few more particulates in the air, but going three times the normal distance is the story missing from the "climate change" lecture (disguised as a "discussion"). Average temperature went up on all the other planets that have magnetic fields. Is that the fault of dinosaur oil too? The newer diesels are even cleaner, running massive break pressures at the injector nozzles for amazing atomization of pre-combustion fuel. Enough rambling for today.

I just wanted to shed some light on the details, because that's the only place to begin seeing a modicum of truth.

1. All of these vaccines aren't FDA approved. They are considered, "Experimental Biologics".
2. The government has waived liability for any "untoward" effects resulting from the use of these Experimental Biologics. If it all goes sideways, you can not hold the pharmaceutical company liable. Since it's "Experimental", taking the vaccine basically enrolls you in a phase III clinical trial for the next 2 years.
3. If/when it goes sideways, who will be affected? First-responders, medical staff, military, police, teachers....everyone. Was it wise to give an experimental agent to so many considering you still have to wear a mask, you still have to social distance, you still can't live normally after receiving the vaccine...AND the chance of survival has always been 99% (0 to 70) and 94.6% if 70 and over.
4. Incomprehensibly, their is a strong progressive push to get this vaccine into blacks asap "in the name of social justice." . For anyone who believes this line of thought, given the shoddy science behind these mRNA vaccines, I strongly suggest you google "The Tuskeegee Experiment".
5. Covid-19 is SARS-Cov2, but recall the first SARS virus, SARS-Cov1 led to the development of many failed vaccines. mRNA vaccines are well tolerated, but in animal studies, subsequent exposure to virus AFTER the vaccine was lethal. The vaccine caused an overproduction of antibody and mast cell degranulation. Basically anaphylaxis like a peanut allergy.
6. Considering the Wuhan lab was being run by the Chinese military, AND the s-protein mutation that makes covid-19 so infectious has been proven to be a recombinant RNA addition, not a natural mutation, it's reasonable to assume this is biological warfare utilizing binary poison. The virus won't kill you, and the vaccine won't kill you, but only when the two come together does lethality present itself. This isn't conspiracy. Everything I just said is in the literature, though google is suspiciously burying them, but it's still out there.

My thoughts and prayers are with you if you've taken the "vaccine". This will all end in smiles or tears, but nothing in between.


I'm never getting my vaccine. How many times has the government lied to us ? It's like they act like they cared.

You say you are disappointed, and saddened by any and all Americans that choose not to vote. So, for some of us, the fact that we were and are willing to sacrifice our lives means absolutely nothing to you personally, if we do not vote. You are free to feel that way. I should know, I personally defended that freedom, as well as multiple generations of family members.

I stopped reading your FYI when you asserted that I am a coward.

ďIf your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him.Ē - JESUS
I am the least religious man in the world, yet I have no doubt we have much more in common than we donít. Thank you for so succinctly summarizing why America is such a wonderful place to live. Room for everyone.

Patton was, in many ways a nut bag, but he was also a genius who absolutely saved the war effort through force of will and belief. He also didnít vote and In doing so joined a long list of military leaders who felt their service must be non-partisan. Should we denigrate his memory because he didnít vote?

I worry that over 70% of American youth are ineligible for military service, and Iím guessing that at least another 10% wonít join because their parents wonít let them. Over my 27 years serving I have seen the census of enlisted kids dwindle to the point where they simply donít represent America.

And when they have full FDA approval- when all the Is are dotted...will you then take the vaccine?

Or is it all just a nutback justification for a toddler that refuses to be told what to do? An anti vaxxer/conspiracy nut?

Oh, you years of pharmaceutical research informed you that there was and mRNA vaccine for COv1? (There WAS a vaccine that triggered a response like you describe, but it was caught in testing WHICH IS HOW SCIENCE IS SUPPOSED TO WORK.) It wsnt, as I recall, and mRNA vaccine. Or was this a secret government program or something?





The truth is out there, eh? Just gotta have the right password to get to the people with the true-truth?



Like most conspiracy nutjobs, this "google is hiding it' dodge is pure quackery. Just look on something else, duck duck go- whatever.


Have you read the Pfizer and Moderna Vaccine Panel Data packages? or do you get your data from facebook?


In [1, 2, 10?] years you will be proven to have been nothing more than an anti-vax quack. Not a 'dispassionate scientist carefully weighing risks and benefits. Just a nut. For those of us not consumed by quackery, it HAS ended- in smiles. We arent magnetized. We arent contagious. We arent having any negative responses. We arent being tracked by bill Gates.... There hare been HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of doses, now over a year out on some, half a year on massive numbers- no signals.


Any your Tuskegee comment? GFYS. That is a despicable accusation, designed by some real scumbags.


Modicum of truth? pathetic

Like anything else, people can choose to believe whatever they want to believe after satisfying their own litmus test for proof. As with polio/smallpox, most people's test has said the vaccines are essential to getting back to normal. There will be fringe theory believers always.... if they want to gamble with their lives, or friends lives, that's their choice.

We are vaccinated and are happy to be able to take our kids out again (with masks indoors) to the zoo or other things they've missed out on for a year+. We'll take our boosters too, like we do for flu, if it's determined that those are necessary to maintain efficacy.

Agree, comparing the Tuskegee experiments to cv19 vaccines is ridiculous.

I had a nasty flu that lasted more than a week. It has the same symptoms of my past flu experience. Starts with tightening throat, then running stuffy nose, fever, cold sweat, aching body, and a week's worth of bed rest before I got better.

Managed to get myself off the bed day 2 to get tested for covid, wanted to make sure that's not what I have.

The testing site is now turned into a combination facility with 9 camps for moderna vaccination and 1 camp for testing.

They are giving away powdered milk, sanitizing wipes, etc, if you are willing to get your free shots.

There seems to be more case of flus now that people are starting to take off their masks and attending more social events.

Vaccines are there for our protection. I understand some people are reticent because this vaccine was developed in such short time frame, there's no long term study available to let us know of its possible side effects.

But.... you take the lesser of 2 evils. You don't ever have everything the way you want in life.
