Government Disinformation Board Determines All Criticism Of Government Disinformation Board To Be Disinformation

“The new board has barely begun its work and already many have jumped to the entirely unwarranted conclusion that it will be used to quash free speech," said DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. "This could not be further from the truth, as everyone in this country has the right to say how much they support and agree with the Biden administration. It is only that speech that we disagree with which will be labeled as disinformation.  This follows the well-established practice of media fact-checkers and social media content moderators.”

Well that was exciting.  Two problems with the Jeep. AC doesn't work, but more interesting is the fuel gauge - it shows a full tank!! In reality, it should be somewhere between a half and three-quarters full.  Going out shopping I had to keep track like the Spitfire pilot in Dunkirk.

Main reason to head out was to pick up my new glasses.  The don't seem right - I'll give them a few days but the horizontal prism seems way off.

It is working like the MSM describing the Biden economy.

(May be a electrical problem or a stuck float. Electrical problems are usually easier to fix because the don't involve removing the fuel tank. If it can't get unstuck, the tank needs to be replaced.)

I drove a truck for years with a busted fuel gauge. Just reset the trip meter every fill up.

Early VW Beetles did not have fuel gauges OR trip odometers, Had a cousin who had one,

(She also had been in the same West End (Boston) theater group with Leonard Nimoy)
