    Sam’s greatest challenge: rewire Skye!!

    • Big Boss Ogg

      Pamela has the best solution for that, there below; use electroshock on the poor misguided twit.

      • Just convince her that the jacket with the extra long sleeves that buckle in the back are VERY fashionable.

    • Janir

      With apologies to The Rolling Stones…
      “Yeah, I tried re-wiring her, tried re-firing her
      I think her engine is permanently stalled”

      There are a couple of Soviet era truth serums that induce permanent amnesia.

    Perhaps some or even most of the religious leaders put profit first but the regular folks don’t. And that’s part of the problem for those who think all religions are the same. The believers don’t behave the same and they would if all religions put profit first.

    • JTC

      True that, BQ…

      I like to say that I believe in America (gov not so much), and God (church not so much)…but I repeat myself.

  • Pamela

    Electroshock should assist in the rewiring

    1400 miles- they still driving fossil fuel dinosaurs or those shiny new green energy takes 12 hours to recharge lead sleds..

    • Big Boss Ogg

      Possibly it was shielded for part of the trip, that helio-gyro thingie in the air could probably catch up within a few hundred miles or so, if the right paperwork has been submitted and the OK has been given for the chase to commence. You know how bureaucracies work…

      • MasterDiver

        Bureaucracies work?

        • Bad Cyborg

          “Work” as in “operate”, MD. I started to write “function” but your original objection would still apply. Not sure “work” applies to bureaucrats in much of any fashion. I’ve said for years that I’ve met damned few civil servants who were either. I’ve also considered the following to be a truism:
          “Those who can, do. Those who cannot go into civil service so they do not have to.”

        • They push paper, don’t they?

        • interventor

          Some of them do work — there’s that whole Operation Overlord D-Day one that did the job. However, at best wasteful and time consuming.

      • JT

        It’s only been a matter of days since the feds were escorted off of Wade’s property. A drone first has to be requisitioned, packed, shipped, unpacked and flown by a trained operator. Sam has a window of opportunity to ditch the GPS before it can be closely followed.

        The GPS can still be tracked through the cell-phone modem that’s attached. So the Feds would have position data but not have any useful eyes on it. Then it’s suddenly “on the move”. Again resources are requested and put through the approvals process while the GPS is moved to the truck. Sam could probably get a trucker to take it with nothing more than a smile. By the time the “go” order is finally given to track the car down and stop it, the GPS has moved a thousand miles.

        • Pamela

          “Approvals! We don’t need no stinking approvals…”

          Sam smiling would work, but I think Wade might have put it in a truckload of locally grown organic compost ready for shipment.

      • interventor

        More likely, just timer that switched it on after a few hours.

  • billf

    Very clever,Chris…both scenes.

  • Big Boss Ogg

    Does this mean Wade ain’t gonna get the Charger? This substitute may be worth the disappointment, cause I’m sure there were some firepower goodies in the trunk of that thing! There’s a 95% probability that, since the fed uses only the best of everything (hell, they ain’t paying!) they’ve stocked up on the best darned shotgun out there, a little number that’s manufactured and offered out of a nondescript building on a 2 lane blacktop in the far NW corner of Cocoa, FL.

    • B Woodman

      BBO,
      What? You think Chris is gonna tip his hand & show everything all at once? Baby steps, baby steps, little by little.
      Patience is. . . . .

    • Calvin

      Ever hear of Fast and Furious? The feds love to give away firepower to the right people.

      • eon

        How ironic it would be if that truck with what looks like a refrigerator on the back is in a junk yard in Mexico.

        cheers

    LOVE Chris’s puns, the total play-on-words. Thank you. You keep my faith alive in an educated humanity.
    The pun is an art taught to me by my Opa (grandfather), and I attempt to use that same art as much as I can. My children get them, but for most everyone else, totally over their heads.

    • Chuck Pelto

      Puns are bad, but poetry is verse.

      • Peet

        A good pun is its own reword.

        • MasterDiver

          Athenian critics told Greek playwright Aristophenes he used too many puns in his comedies, and that the pun is the lowest form of humor;
          He replied: Yes, It the foundation upon which all the rest is based!

  • B Woodman

    I just want to know, when and where did Sam have time and access to a Big Rig to swap out the GPS?

  • Leo AutoDidact

    I’m just hoping that Sam wiped ALL the Fingerprints before she gave the GPS a “ride”!

    Nitpick: God is Truth. Allah is the greatest deceiver^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^hstrategist of them all. These are not compatible attributes.

  • Brian H

    Wrong. Allah is a minor desert moon god who’s acting too big for his britches.

    • Pamela

      I thought it was a composite of an older regional hermaphrodite river god and one of the gods of war.

  • Bill G

    Sam can no more communicate with Skye than a normal person can with a jihadist. And just as jihadists want to destroy all others, liberals want to destroy any resistance to their madness.
    Puns? Wired we doing those?

    • DDS

      The same reason eggs Benedict are best served on a hubcap…

  • Guitanguran

    Good play on words. Bad theology.

    • Bob

      Actually, his theology regarding allah is spot on. The muslim crescent is a testament to the fact that allah was worshipped as a minor deity, moon god, by some tribes and nomads in the Sinai peninsula. allah was coopted by mohammed and his followers, and identified by them as the god of Abraham.

      There is simply no reconciliation between allah and Jehovah whatsoever when comparing the koran and hadiths to the Bible.

  • Paul of Alexandria

    Sigh. no, Christians and Muslims do NOT worship the same God. Simply because Muslims claim it doesn’t make it so.

  • Rabbi Steve

    The G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob says to love your neighbor as yourself. The god of Islam says to kill your neighbor if he doesn’t agree with you. Definitely not the same.

  • Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder

    “Muzzlums, Christians and Jews worship the same God,” is one of those lies that everyone has always heard and almost everyone just accepts.
    When a man is distracted by a pretty girl, the Judeo-Christian deity says he should exercise some self discipline, stop coveting and get back to work; the muzzlemans’ god says he is a hapless slave to her temptations and she is at fault for any wickedness that follows. One wants you to quietly pray at the table before you eat, the other says grovel in public five times a day while the prayers are yelled at you. One says Do Not Murder and the other has a hundred pages about how to divide up the loot after you do.
    They are nothing alike.

    And i totally called the GPS put onna truck yesterday (to Mexico, i said.)

    • Grunt_GI

      Totally agree. Islam is nothing like Judaism or Christianity.

      But it is Skye. And to liberal prigs allllll religions are evil. Except Gaia worshipping.

      Which is why certain idiots still bring up the crusades to excuse islamofacism. Today.
      It’s all subjective to them.

    • Alan

      The differences you cite are true, but they are the differences between human choices about how to understand the same God. From his writings, it’s not likely Mohammed was listening very well (or at all?)

      • Brian H

        What writings? He was an illiterate with epileptic hallucinations.

  • Joel

    Remember Allah is the father of lies. It says so in the Koran. In the Bible, who is the father of lies? I’ll give you a hint. John 8:44.

  • JTC

    Pay closer attention to that exchange; Skye thinks all believers worship the same dude (spirit), Sam knows the difference: that the muslim dude (prophet m.) is inherently deceitful and evil. Still, Skye is convinced (and largely correctly so) that (organized) religion is all about government (control) and ultimately all about the money…always follow the money. Religion, government, control, money…very much redundant terms.

    But Skye and the many lost souls like her who think they are too intelligent to believe, actually are ignorant of a simple fact; “religion” and “religious” are not redundant or interchangeable terms. As someone quoted upthread, He lives in the temple of your heart, not in that impressive and expensive building (money), and you don’t need the conduit of a blow-dried blow-hard in its pulpit (money) to talk and listen to Him.

  • presbypoet

    Not the same god. One died because He loved us. The other demands we kill. mohamadism turns the Bible on its head to say that Isaiah was not the one to be sacrifice, but the arab son.

    The atheist killer in N.C. thought both “religions” were the same, but that is just liberal ignorance. That is why 0 can talk of opposing extremism and think he is doing something useful.
    The most important question is this: Who is Jesus? Prophet? God? teacher? man? or myth? How you answer this question divides the world, and how we live or die.

    • DDS

      Hear, hear! Especially your last paragraph. God became a man to live among us and establish, not a religion for the masses, but an eternal loving relationship with each individual who will admit they don’t deserve Him.

      A nit: I think you mean Isaac, not Isaiah, and the son of the Egyptian slave, Hagar, was Ishmael. Ishmael was the ancestor of those who settled in the the area from Havilah to Shur, near the eastern border of Egypt… And they lived in hostility toward all the tribes related to them. Gen 25:12-18. Traditionally these are the Arabic and other non-Jewish Semitic peoples. Still hostile…

      • Shonkin

        Not all the non-Jewish Semitic peoples, just some of them; Esau was the father of the Edomites, and Lot’s sons Moab and Ammon were the ancestors of two other Semitic nations. There were also the Arameans (Syrians), who were around long before Abraham, the Assyrians, the Chaldeans, etc. But I think they generally chalk up the Arabs to Ishmael, and maybe the Amalekites too.

        • interventor

          The Chaldeans, Assyrians, and Hittites are still around in Iraq –Mostly Christian. Although, now, many are running for their lives. BTW, Chaldeans are tall, light complexion and many are blonde. That surprised me. Their church choirs sound beautiful.

      • presbypoet

        You are correct, I had a brain fart. I was focused on trying to remember how to spell Ishmael, and let my subconscious throw me a curve on Isaac. It is probably because I was just reading in Chronicles where it mentions Isaiah, and didn’t check my work. Names are the bane of my life.

  • Shonkin

    It’s really a simple thing to put the GPS unit on a truck. You walk through a dark truck-stop[ parking lot, pick a likely truck, and duct-tape it under the body somewhere. To power it, I’m sure Sam could attach a battery to it — at most a little soldering to hard-wire it. Then tape it to a part of the undercarriage where it’s not likely to get noticed right away. ‘Bye, GPS.

  • Snafu F. Ubar

    Sam used a raspberry pi and a second gps so the feds’ gps was active about 30 secs at a time, 3 random times a day, and only when the host vehicle was moving. It took a while and only 1,400 miles but THEY GOT THEIR GPS BACK.

  • Allah is Satan. Look at what he commands, his attributes. The Quran describes him in damn near the same way as the Bible describes Satan. And everything he talls his followers to do, lie, cheat, steal, murder, name it, duh.

    • Tells. Tells. Not talls.

  • Scruffy Scirocco

    Just shows how little Skye Really knows. Allah has very little to do with the God of Moses, Abraham and Jesus. They are not the same dude.

    My God does not endorse the assassination of people who speak out against him. (Ibn Ishaq 676)
    My God does not permit you to rape your captive females. (Tabari IX:25)
    My God did not endorse his prophets to take slaves and “marry” (read: Rape with legitimacy) them hours after publicly executing their fathers. (Quran 50-51, Ibn Ishaq 466)
    My God does not share his glory with his two sister goddesses (oops, sorry, Satan dictated that part of the Quran, according to Muhammad. My bad . . . or his. . .. whatever). (Ibn Ishaq 165)
    My God does not endorse 57 year old prophets to have intercourse with 9 year old brides. (Bukhari:V7B62N64)
    My God did not advocate his prophet to wage a campaign of banditry from which the prophet got 20% of all the booty. (Quran 8:41, Bukhari:V1B2N50)
    My God did not reverse his teachings. (Quran 2:106)
    My God does not deny the immaculate conception, the divinity of Jesus or that Jesus died on the cross, let alone rose from the dead. (Quran 4:157)
    My God does not teach that a woman is worth half of a man. (Quran 2:282)
    My God does not require that you be killed if you leave the faith. (Quran 4:89)
    My God does not consider the mindless recital of scripture in an archaic language that the penitent doesn’t even understand as prayer. (Bukhari:V2B16N108)
    My God does not instruct the sons of prophets to divorce their wives so that the prophet can marry them. (Tabari VIII:1-3)
    My God does not instruct his prophets to renounce the trinity. (Quran 5:73)

    • Quite impressive, Scruffy! It’s about time this type of detailed information with direct quotes from sources is brought forward to counter the BS arguments regarding Islam. Just because you believe in one God doesn’t necessarily mean that you worship the same God. Satan worshippers believe in one god, but their god is not the same as the Judeo-Christian God. Allah is not a generic word for “god”. It’s referring to a specific god, and it’s not the same Judeo-Christian God (despite what some claim/believe). The two are antithetical.
