Hondo Gravel 07-05-20 10:32 AM

I’ve been lucky on my 2016 RAM pickup no problems. I worry about the notorious Hemi tick that has plagued previous Hemi engines. 4 years only 38,000 miles and for out here that is low mileage. The Hemi tick is crummy lifters at start up bad lubrication. Change the oil every 10k with a good synthetic oil and a heavy duty oil filter and hopefully 250K before death. At this stage I just want to get to point A to B and have 4x4 and some towing capabilities.

Did you see the episode of Uncle Tony's Garage where he compared a 70's 318 with the modern hemi? He hated the oiling for the cam and lifters in the newer engines.

Didnít see that show. But Iím worried about oiling issue. Supposedly there is a fix that and should be a recall. Not sure.. Some say they fixed the problem but is that true? When my cam flattens out and the engines chirps ... I have my bikes :lol:

"Insurance for all" and "Medicare for all" will result in substandard, overly expensive care (despite the fact that no single insurance provider has enough market share to negotiate favorably with larger medical networks). While it's true that killing the profit motive aspect might decrease the number of medical providers, it's unlikely to reduce the overall quality if the conscientious providers are the ones staying.

The dominant system in the US is profit based sickness care. We lead the world in costs, rank 37th on the WHO in results and things are getting worse.

As I was deleting old files this evening, I came across this screenshot I took of the healthinsurance.org home page during the open enrollment of 2017. To this day, a fitting image for many Americans.

Most Americans are seeing the things of real importance? They couldn't go to malls and private owned stores so they all packed together in Walmart and Lowes to drain their bank accounts. It has only changed where they were allowed to spend ridiculous amounts of money.
