I'll support this as soon as you show me what the US Constitution and the Federal Government have to do with me working on cars. Article and paragraph, please.

Don't support, you will just ruin the topic. For a lifetime, we owned all of a vehicle,be it a plane, car, or boat. Now manufacturer maintains ownership right to its intellectual data. I pay you as much as 5 years salary for only the right to use what was engineered? In software world, we came up with Redhot Linux, a share ware Operating System which empowered a push back at co-opted Unix that certain companies stamped as their exclusive variety. They demanded procey licensing of their variety. We should only support products where share ware environments exist, it levels the monopolization of markets by fat arrogant corporations like John Deere. Who needs your million dollar tractor when we can shop Europe tractors bad find a unit we can access to be ablevto maintain? If Ukraine's tractors can be stolen by Russia, and "turned off" by Deere, do you think thst power should be used against owners who paid for ownership, then tried to hack the maintenance access code to just perform service? That is why we need legislation. Owners need a heavy authority of government to set the behemoth makers in their place.

Legislation....under what authority? Where in the US Constitution would that legislation fit? (Serious question.)
07/07/2022 10:00
ASHLEY P
Sir, much of "late model" tractor and road vehicle complexity is caused by the government. The government has caused much of the problems with diesel engines....namely the emission control systems. Again I ask, where is their authority?
07/07/2022 12:43
ASHLEY P
Sir, the government is NOT needed to solve the problem they helped to create. Instead, we need freedom of market so that (as you said) other tractors are available for purchase....competition. Did you buy that 100 hp tractor you wanted?

wrong again. There is a massive investment in technology to create these self driven tractors and micro field management. The array of technology in a contemporary near million dollar tractor is just mind blowing. The entire justificaiton by Grassley (head Ag committee) and other Republicans to support rural internet, was the tractor revolution micro spraying weeks, regulating farm field management at a level about as small as a military GPS standard. Old 3 foot GPS standard is way off for agriculture, so 5G technology was essential to bring massive production to scale. China wants it. We design it. So that is why there is so much tied up in these right to wrench laws. What farmer who is alive today, wants to be billed at 150 an hour to monitor his hydraulic system to find out where one check valve needs fixed. Same is happneing in auto industry. Cars are advancing, they are driving by camera. They are already doing this. Cameras in multiple panels are sighting division lines and edge lines on the road and making driverless corrections. GM has this in spades right now. All of the companies want intellectual protection. I have done enough around tech stream to fix some complicated dealer only stuff on my Toyota, but shops still can't fix some things. Some areas are left dealership only. This legislation goes far more basic that those intellectual areas. They get into race tuning and performance results. You could not be a Jon Kaase and break through on engine results without controlling these aspects of the ECM. And all of the track racers need these freedoms.
07/07/2022 15:48
ASHLEY P
As a professional "mechanic", I want the ability to fix things. I still ask, WHERE is the authorization in the Constitution for Congress to have anything to do with what you speak of?
07/08/2022 00:08

Are you nuts? What relevance does a subject about mechanical repairs have to do with a period when patents and licensing were a fuzzy subject? Did licenses to fix a wagon wheel exist? Go to Jefferson's place. He set up a mixro city of slave operated skills. He gets this horrible rap ovrr having tamed his land using slaves, but in fact he was a kind of godfather to 100s of indigenous people in equipping them with life trades at his expense. The living history based upon his actions (Monticello trades row) is quite a story compared to the arm chair litigators who are historical idiots, utterly clueless. Does practice and pattern of the author of the constitution set a precedent for us in modern era? We are not stuck in the originalist time period of the 1770s. Another her Nationalist ignorant myth.
07/08/2022 09:06

I repeat: Where does the Constitution grant Congress the power to regulate tractors or the computer software that controls them?

As I read what jurist.org writes about the constitution (very traditionalist view), they argue that the founding fathers specifically stayed way way far from minutia. You will find zero words about relationships, marriage, morality steering. What they did for was establish a framework for federalist structure of the country in which powers were effectively countered. This is 100% a Bible principle. To paraphrase, "In the counsel if many, there is good judgement." A perfect and timely example is the Trump exception to what the founding fathers ever wanted to see take power, and destroy their processes framework of federalist governance. Truly, they are turning in their graves watching shit hit the fan as we depart Democrac and race to totalitarianism. You have to ask how avfederalistxsystem that appointed a legislative branch to write law, DOES NOT have authority to check abuse by corporate powerful interests who financial strength exceeds that of most countries on the planet. If barring you from servicing because it isn't under their monopolistic control through the Stealership, such as the ripoff crooks at John Deere, I don't know why we would allow that kind of owner abuse to exist.
07/09/2022 17:22

I read your reply. Again you've not provided any Constitutional reason for the federal government to be involved in what you say they should be involved in.

I'll support your policy if you can show me how it's Constitutional. You can't show me that because it's NOT Constitutional. Comprende?
07/11/2022 09:22

Sir, I often question the basis for your claims. If the foundation of your claims (in this case) has no legal merit you might fall into the same political corner as the other folks on the left. How about banning farms?

We are talking about SEMA, and they work on behalf of us gearheads. Quit convoluting this subject. Prefer you did not puke up everything with your anarchist tendencies. Some of us like Democracy where people influence policy.
07/13/2022 14:03
ASHLEY P
Me anarchist? Uh, I"m suggesting we follow the laws we've enacted. You are suggesting otherwise. Once again your conclusion is reversed from reality.
07/13/2022 22:05

In other words, my very questions about "where does the Constitution authorize this bill?" would SUPPORT "Democracy" and your support for this bill would UNDERMINE said Democracy. Think about it.

Constitution defines framework of government. It does not effect legislation. Thst job is by the governance of various elected bodies. Why are you muddling subjects? Fail to understand why founding fathers stayed out of picuneriary details. It would behold v evyouvto study the time period of British rule in the 1700s. Anglican churchyard a powerful role in moralizing behavior which deprived Brits of right to freely express family, faith, moral choices. They sought less interference, less chirch duplicitius standards, and a given of people who looked and acted like they did. So they battles for x freedom to that. Your aggravation with your trade is sane as mine. A regulatory body defines everyday chemicals as harmful to many well being, so they will save me from myself. F that. F the regulators who ce never restored but know zinc chromate are going to ruin the planet. Ever look under the roof of the DOT. There aren't any working or past tense CDLs, anywhere. Regulatory bodies be one a organism which needs to eat to exist. So they must always grow, F with more people, in order to l egitinize their v ery existence. Budgets, by definition, must be maxxed, and always bigger. Not so different than Pentagon justification for existence.. Bill Clinton was hard on that excess, and forced a house cleaning.. Suddenly, our government produced a 5 trillion surplus. And then a Bush promptly squandered that. Put the Iraq and Afghanistan wars on credit card while he told us to just keep shopping. Clinton was only good President in 50 years, no debt run up, crazy booming economy, aN d progressive bipartisan legislation. Not just him, Newt Gingrich pulled weight too.

Sir, you asked me to support a "house bill" (federal legislation). I simply want to know how Congress has the authority. Authority must come from the Constitution. Where?
07/16/2022 21:58

You claim to support Democracy, yet your desires are to vote for ILLEGAL "bills". Yet you call me the "anarchist". Show me the Article and Section giving Congress the authority to regulate what you mentioned.

Not my words, actually one of your clan, Ted Cruz, but he has argued before the Supreme Court a few times. "If you believe gay marriage is a good idea, the way the Constitution is set up for you to advance that position is to convince your fellow citizens and if you succeeded in convincing your fellow citizens, then your state would change the laws to reflect those views,” he continued. “In Obergefell, the Court said, ‘No, we know better than you guys do,’ and now every state must sanction and permit gay marriage.”

The subject of the law writing is different, of course,but as to vocalizing support for SEMA to effect change, it is to the point.
07/20/2022 16:16
ASHLEY P
Uh, you have FAILED to address my point. The Constitution is the law granting authority to Congress over about 17 things (in Article 1, Section 8 "Enumerated Powers") and later the 10th Amendment states that "all other powers" are to the states or people. Congress has NO authority over the production or operation of an automobile.
07/20/2022 22:08
ASHLEY P
Sir, Ted Cruz was saying that marriage is a STATE RIGHT. So your post actually supports MY position. The Federal government has no say.

I was not on "marriage". I was on how we Crete a SEMA influenced law that opposes this monopolistic manufacturer policy that removes our authority to wrench on and access diagnostic content on we paid for, therefore OWN. Marriage is a entirely unrelated subject which the Cobstitution specifically avoided. Founding fathers absolutely wanted government out of our groins, bedrooms, and private lives. So they purposely enumerated personal rights coukd not be infringed.
07/22/2022 09:06
ASHLEY P
Sir, neither of us are talking marriage laws. I'm talking about how Article 1, Section 8 give Congress the authority to do about 17 things. Amendment 10 says "all other things" (my translation) are states and peoples rights. LOGICALLY, there is no authorization for any bill you talk about. To break a monopolistic John Deere, to buy an Allis Chalmers, Massey Ferguson, White, ect.

so why does it design a two chamber legislative system? Spelled out with the intention of creating the rules of society. I think you have a better defense in just how small and limited the office of the President was intended to be, which was largely obliterated by orange head.

Do you mean the guy who erased tax obligation for mega property developers (himself), ruined the electoral college, stole a Democratic nominee to Supreme Ciurt, passed a permanent middle class tax hike for life called "tax break for the rich",and managed to embolden every 2 bit dictator around the globe to trash their electoral process by damning the outcome as rigged before the votes ever got cast? Yeah, your PHD in moron from Paducah Junior College is working out well.
07/24/2022 21:36
ASHLEY P
Sir, you can make fun of my "hometown" and assert that I'm not educated enough to make sense of things. I can just point back to your statements (in this topic) that show you....get ideas tangled. Thinking that passing bills that are illegal is democracy and that wanting to follow democratically enacted laws is anarchy. That's about as backward as some of the she men that "President" Brandon has appointed. Whatajoke.
07/24/2022 22:49
ASHLEY P
Sir, you assert that John Deere has "monopolistic control". I say that John Deere has competitors, shop there if you don't like JD. Another item, if farmers weren't subsidized (illegally I'd suggest) by the federal government, maybe they wouldn't have the funds to lease equipment therefore bypassing the problems which come later.

The government is of the people, by the people, for the people. So therefore, representation creates protections for those people. SEMA protects right-to wrench. That such a right needs prote tion when the property changed owners at the point of purchase, that subject should be what you find unauthorized and unlawful. Suppose I sell you my 12 year old daughter in Afghanistan. One up side is she won't starbe and die. But do I get to control her mind and restrict you from exploitation? That act and scenario is happening right now all across the country as Taliban force children girls into marriage.

You can't answer a question, can you? You are more anarchist than I am. I'm more democratic than you. Biden is a dementia patient. Trump made lots of mistakes, but compared to the TOP democrats in power, he was SMART and a GREAT leader.

I think President Trump made some stupid statements. But I don't think he ever said anything more stupid than your statements such as "truth can be made up, concocted". Get someone to help you read and reply.

Biden would Hage been Presiident earlier aftrr Obama. He may have performed better, that said, he gets blamed incorrectly gor setting in motion the Afghanistan final drawdown. Trump cut the sucky deal, mind boggling since we had all the control, and they had little. I would never have allowed them to just take over. A force of 5000 should have stayed there indefinitely, at least 70 years, because it takes a few generations to alter ancient ways of the male testosterone culture. Now, I think Biden has tunnel vision. Trump did too, just a different bent. Neither surrounded themselves either strong types who would absolutely ho down in flames before budging on Democracy as a principle. Pence is hardly a Stalwart, but he has sone qualities for a stiff board. Your embrace of guns, a ND agaibst ethnic riots is troubling. The riots were proven to have been infected by white supremacists trying to paint a narrative. All America has to do is prove police are f as ir and not cruel. Why is that so damned hard? None of the ridiculous police brutality slayings should have ever happened. It is direct path attributable to scared cops reacting at a adrenaline level due to guns constantly being used against them. Fix guns, begin to fix police hostility. The other feed up part is background. Cops with wife beating and GI Joe aren't helpful to a social services function. Sadly domestic assault is the no. 1 call they go out on.

You claim "riots were proven..." What proof? Proof required TRUTH. YOU claim truth can be "made up". Your argument is ILLOGICAL. Provide this proof.

And your straw man, ad hominem fallacies are tiring. Have you heard about the pigeon that plays chess? It struts around on the chess board knocking over pieces and pooping on the board and thinks it's winning. That's much like you using logical fallacies and NEVER providing a logical reason for your claims (claims which I have proven to be incorrect, i.e. "DNA proves a baby is NOT the mother").
