Only ones I find mount to water pump and I don't have one or there $80+ and I don't wanna spend that. That's where it was but is destroying belts and isn't turning good cause can't get enough adjustment Any help??

Mike and Molly

Thu, 04/17/2014 - 17:37
We used to like this show quite a bit.
Last season, while Molly was still a teacher, she was spewing some liberal idealism to her students and one of the kids spoke up saying that his Dad that the things she was saying was exactly what was destroying the Country.

Her reply was a smart assed: "I love when the parents try to help".

That at really bugged me, and I almost quit watching.
Last week, the show started with Mike and his patrol partner Carl (they are Chicago cops, both flat broke with Mike living in his MIL basement) writing up a report on there "heroic" actions of arresting a "Dirtbag from Kentucky" that had weapons in his car trunk.
They had come across him changing a flat tire with his trunk open.
They went on at length about the despicable gun owner, with NO other mention of any other violation.

I have been thinking a lot about this, and have decided that Mike and Molly will no longer be watched in this house.
Anyone else catch that?
