Of all the Causes which conspire to blind
Man's erring Judgment, and misguide the Mind,
What the weak Head with strongest Byass rules,
Is Pride, the never-failing Vice of Fools.
Whatever Nature has in Worth deny'd,
She gives in large Recruits of needful Pride;
For as in Bodies, thus in Souls, we find
What wants in Blood and Spirits, swell'd with Wind;
Pride, where Wit fails, steps in to our Defence,
And fills up all the mighty Void of Sense!
If once right Reason drives that Cloud away,
Truth breaks upon us with resistless Day;
Trust not your self; but your Defects to know,
Make use of ev'ry Friend--and ev'ry Foe.

Any way, several E-MAILS ago some one wrote about a shaky/wobbly front end. I let my alligator mouth get a head of my humming bird a__ and said "Ya mine does the same, I just don't drive it over 40 mph. Well fortunately several of you said no way my front end is tight regardless of speed and you can balance tires with or without tubes. So, I have replaced my tie rods, ends, tubes, etc. I purchased new 600x16 ndt tires a couple of months ago(I didn't replace them). My front end is TIGHT now cost less than $ w/shipping(Turner 4x4). I also found a guy that balanced my tires with what looked like a 60's vintage Snap-On spin balancer(I offered to buy the thing on the spot, no luck but I'll try again:-)). Spin balanced the tries ON the jeep. My little jewel runs like a top now. Moral of the story: Listen to the folks on "Willys Tech" and heed the quote by Mr. Royce at the end of Jerry's notes!!!!! Thanks for keeping my head out of the sand!!
In some cases, the use of terrorism can be an aspect of guerrilla warfare. Terrorism is used to focus international attention on the guerrilla cause, kill opposition leaders, extort money from targets, intimidate the general population, create economic losses, and keep followers and potential defectors in line. As well, the use of terrorism can provoke the greater power to launch a disproportionate response, thus alienating a civilian population which might be sympathetic to the terrorist's cause. Such tactics may backfire and cause the civil population to withdraw its support, or to back countervailing forces against the guerrillas.
