For all that I’m happy with John McCain’s loss in Michigan, last night, I will say to his credit he got one thing right; Michigan manufacturing… specifically the auto industry… won’t be coming back anytime soon. The unions and the liberal nutbags in Lansing and in Washington have seen to it that the golden egg […]

Interesting note, the other day from Rolling Stone’s Jeff Goodell: The great danger of confronting peak oil and global warming isn’t that we will sit on our collective asses and do nothing while civilization collapses, but that we will plunge after “solutions” that will make our problems even worse.

The subject of motorcycles and accidents thereon has come up over at Billy’s place. Here is something that I think is true: people who have never been in a bike crash have a very difficult — nearly impossible — time at conceiving the amazing violence unleashed in one. Look: how often do you ever seriously […]

About everybody on the planet, seemingly, has picked up on this story within the last few days of the kid who went ahead and put together a dream truck, only to see the environmentalist fascist crowd in his neighborhood decide that he wasn’t being environmentally friendly.  I’ll link Joyner, here, because it’s handy… and he […]

OK, perhaps something a bit lighter for discussion. I find with the new truck I’ve really gotten into getting that and my wife’s car to look their best.  At the moment, my efforts are concentrated on making the paint ‘pop’ visually. I’m looking at various wax/ bonding products.  I’ve used Meguires Cleaner Wax as a […]
