Free Gasolina!!

https://twitter.com/luisborja76/stat...34268379631617

Mexico has a 3 billion dollar a year problem, with illegals stealing gasoline, by drilling into gasoline pipe lines after they leave the refinery.

This one did not work out well; must have been high test gas.

Damn illegals.

A new caravan of illegals is headed this way from Central America as I write this.

Gasoline theft works out about as well as copper theft. The thieves eventually blow themselves up.

Amazing. Build a man a fire he'll be warm for the day. Set him on fire and he'll be warm the rest of his life. TP

And those are the people they want to come over here? From the looks of the fire it was a small lake of gas. Tapping a pipeline must take some huge cajones

Steam power is great but the Stanley steamer still had to burn oil to fire the boiler. When it comes to internal and external combustion engines it's hard to get away from oil use. Maybe a steam engine with a boiler fired by dark matter will be available in the future. A BB size piece of dark matter could probably fuel a steam engine for 100 years

There are 4 types of fires, denoted by fuel type.

A- paper, wood
B- oils, gas
C- Electrical
D- solid metals like magnesium


In the navy we referred to this as a "screaming bravo" fire. Lots of screaming bravos in that video. Best treatment is a MA2 from distance, not like they'll live for long anyway.

Frankly, the mentality that it takes to do this, is exactly who the illegals are, in your community today.

From Central America to Mexico, totally uneducated, illiterate, violent, theft ridden, immoral, amoral, peasants, will kill you for a cigarette. "Papers?, We gotz no stinkin papers, you Gringo Bastard."

THAT is why we need vetting for legal immigration, and work permits for DACA's and PAPA illegals already here, with #'s that will make the illegals who live here and work here, finally pay taxes against their will, and give them time to violate.................... so that they may eventually be deported like Lucky Luciano was.

All will be deported eventually.

Pelosi is in a "bra war," with Ocassio-Cortez for control of the Democratic party.
I suspect that Pelosi is searching for those sex tapes that OCTZ made, MORE THAN YOU ARE!!

Not a Job for dummies. The Hot tap machine was worth the 3K I paid for it at auction,,, first Hot tap at Anchorage international was 8K, then my Bud at Roll"N Oil drilling bought it from me and PAID me to run it most times it was needed.

The Process is cutting into pipeline under pressure, fitting and welding the tap fitting for valve and check for perfect weld etc.

Not dangerous at all, even a liberal ,, No f@cking liberals can be allowed near a dangerous ANYTHING.
