Re Lowes Hdw and Klunky Troy Bilt Weedeater I Bought from the Jerks at Lowes

I made the mistake of buying one of these bastardized 4-stroke string trimmers from Lowes in Asheville. It is a pile of junk, take it from me, who rebuilds aircraft engines and believes in perfection and meticulous care of machinery. The cutting head got hot and seized the first time I used it because it had not been greased at the factory. It leaks all the oil out of the engine, no matter what position it is in and even when it is not in use. It leaks all its gasoline too. This is a weedeater from hell. I have about 2 hours on the POS. I’d like to ram it down the throat of Troy Bilt’s CEO. Oh, yeah, and it will not run until it is warmed up and that takes 5+ minutes of running, dying, cranking, dying, and re-cranking. I used to have a good opinion of Troy Bilt. Not any more. Now it’s associated in my mind with Rube Goldberg and the klunky rattletrap East German Trabant automobile.

FOIE GRAS

What’s happening nearby, neighbor, is that sadly several restaurants in Asheville serve foie gras, while NYC is in process of declaring this product of barbarity illegal. While the atrocity of torturing ducks and geese is committed to please the palates of the unconscionable, to be silent about it is to be an accessory to it. Use your search engine to learn just how cruel and evil production of foie gras is.
