A Lesson In How To Out-Lexus The LS

I think that the new BMW 4 Series is an attractive coupe. The design is a little bit on the wrong side of “fussy” I’ll grant you, and I don’t particularly care for the look of the scalloped, black-bordered vents on the fender sides – functional though they may be. But for the most part, I find the coupe to be pretty pleasing to look at.

You all, by and large, do not care for the 4 Series. (For the sake of constructing my intellectual argument, I’m going to make the ridiculous statistical assumption that the 140 or so comments on our 4 Series First Drive provide a representative opinion of our readership as a whole.) In the first 24 hours after we published our review of the car, you felt moved to comment that it was “ugly,” “REALLY ugly” and “a disappointment” among other, less reprintable statements of ardor.

So clearly we see things a little differently in terms of styling, but what does any of this have to do with the 2014 Hyundai Equus?

Convert countertop dishwasher for use as a built-in?

By doni49

I have a really small kitchen but I’d REALLY like to have a DW. I’m planning to replace the cabinets at some point in the future and in fact, I’m considering the possibility of building them myself. If I do build them myself, I’m sure I can make a space to house a countertop DW — IF I can convert it for use as a built-in.

I’m thinking that this would at least allow me to have a drawer below the dishwasher for storage.

Does anyone know about converting these?

What Security Measures Should The Recently Wealthy Use?

By Quora, Contributor

Some thoughts: Stop receiving mail and packages at your home – This way there will no reasons for strangers to arrive at your home announced. Have your mail and packages arrive at your office, at your attorney’s office or at post office. Get a PO box and use another address for that. Move – Into a nice home (but not too nice) – Only allow your close friends and family to visit you there. Don’t register your vehicles to the home and unless you are REALLY political, don’t use that residence as your address for voting (rent a small apartment in a nearby city). Buy several nice (but not too nice) vehicles – Have them registered to the apartment in town or your office. When they are being serviced, always detach your home keys from your vehicle keys. Buy a dog – A loud one. Unless you or a family member is allergic to dogs, they are the best protection you can get. Dress down – Not sloppily; but mostly casual. If you are seeking to buy extremely expensive clothing or jewelry, do so in a nearby major city and dispose of your wrappings for the clothing away from your home. Begin vetting your friends and family members – Anybody on drugs or have a gambling problem? Any ex-felons or political radicals? Unless you are exceptionally close, start phasing them out of your life. They are going to be problems soon enough. Get a good attorney – Make certain that he/she understands that your personal privacy is paramount. Have them construct one or more corporations or LLC structures that conceal you, your location, and your assets from all but the most determined of law enforcement searches. Children – If you have children, make certain that they understand how keeping your lives private is important. If they want friends to stop by, then make sure that you know the children’s parents and that you can trust the children in your home. No parties if they are teenagers. If you are single – No overnight “guests” at your home until you have decided that things are going somewhere. Use the address in the city for that. No parties at your house (rent a place or use a friend’s house). Consider purchasing a firearm. Google search yourself 1-3 times a week – Make certain that only items which you deem to be favorable are posted online about you. Do NOT show your home on Twitter, Facebook, or any social media. Take different routes to work every day – This may be excessive, but you really don’t know who might have people tailing you. Leave at different times and arrive at them as well. If you are still working – Don’t let your employees know too much about your personal life. If they send you a gift or card, have it sent to the apt. in town or to your attorney’s office. Make certain that only your most trusted employees have your home address,

Obama Using The IRS For Blackmail?

By Doug Book

Build It IRS Will Come SC Obama using the IRS for blackmail?

In September of 2011, 60 million health records involving 10 million Americans were illegally confiscated by members of the IRS. The theft took place at an unidentified place of business in California.

Referring to itself as the John Doe Company in a lawsuit filed last week against the 15 IRS agents who took part, plaintiffs claim that “no search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search.”

One of the IRS agents who took part in the theft told John Doe Company officials that the government was searching for records involved in a “tax matter” pertaining to a former John Doe employee. Yet when informed that their search warrant did NOT allow for the confiscation–or even the search—of the 60 million health records taken, the IRS “…threatened to ‘rip’ the servers containing the medical data out of the building…” if the records were not turned over willingly!

The Doe Company complaint continues:

Moreover, even though Defendants knew that the records they were seizing were not included within the scope of the search warrant, the Defendants nonetheless searched and seized the records without making any attempt to segregate the files from those that could possibly be related to the search warrant. In fact, no effort was made at all to even try maintaining the illusion of legitimacy and legality.

Never mind the breathtaking arrogance of Obama’s foot soldiers or the contempt they display for the law and the American people. Those are old stories. In this case, the truly relevant question is WHY? What was the real purpose behind this IRS theft? The John Doe Company is presumed to be an insurance company or repository of insurance records. Of the 10 million individuals whose medical records were taken, it is believed that nearly 90% live outside of California, making the IRS theft one of truly national significance. The records stolen are said to include those of every state judge in California, all state court employees and “…prominent citizens in the world of entertainment, business and government, from all walks of life.” The medical information includes “… psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual or drug treatment and a wide range of medical matters covering the most intimate and private of concerns.”

In short, if ever a politician needed information with which to coerce a powerful, recalcitrant friend or blackmail an outright enemy, these stolen records could provide a treasure trove of “mineable” dirt! Was this a Regime-ordered fishing expedition, a search for potentially damaging information concerning the more recognizable individuals within a very long list of otherwise less than noteworthy names? Or were millions of files stolen in order to provide a healthy margin of cover for the relatively few that Regime operatives REALLY wanted!

The IRS has operated with utter disregard for law and the Constitution for …read more
