Quote of the Day

Like most bullies, the Obamabots seem unable to realize that their conduct may have long-term consequences.

From Professor Bainbridge, talking about how Obama’s administration is screwing up the car industry.

But I have to tell you, this really strikes me as a quote that applies to pretty much all Democrats.

They don’t care that single-payer health care has been a disaster everywhere it’s been tried.  Canada’s system barely works, but because they still have the benefit of a capitalized, free market health care system just across the border in the US.  Oh, and their drug prescription benefit comes at our expense, too.  If we go to the same socialized medicine, their system collapses, and meds will be far more expensive for EVERYONE.

Democrats don’t care if welfare destroys more lives than it saves.

Democrats don’t care if defenseless people are killed because criminals with guns run wild.

Democrats don’t care if our descendents are poor and live at a lower standard of living, just as long as they can raise taxes and rack up debt to get more people dependent on the government instead of on themselves.

Demcrats don’t even seem to care about the US Constitution, if they can pack the Supreme Court with proportional minority representatives “sensitive to certain populations.”

It seems like to Democrats, the effort is all that matters.  To say they have “done something” to get votes so they can do ever more “somethings.”  And when their plans inevitably fail, they find some way to blame Republicans, or rich people, or whites, or males, or “inauthentic” blacks or gays, etc.

I want grown-ups in charge again, please.

Blogger’s Childhood Dream Nearing Reality

If you were the right age at the right time (…and believe me, the window on that was probably measured in months, if not weeks), you truly enjoyed the movie “Megaforce!”

(Bonus fun fact: Apparently the creators of South Park were as enamored of the movie as I was!)

Wikipedia does a great job of summing up the (simultaneous) reasons to both love and hate the movie when it includes: “…motorcycles (and dune buggies) launching missiles which proved lethal for main battle tanks (MBT). The dune buggies, “megadestroyers” or “megacruisers”, also had lasers that could destroy a tank in a single shot.”

Well, apparently there is a call for just such a mobile dune buggy force (albeit without the “lasers” or MBT armor-defeating missiles…because, really: who needs that these days?): 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Megaforce, er, Phoenix International!

Honda “Prius”? Not At All

Mickey Kaus says the new Honda Insight looks like a Prius.

I beg to differ. Take a look and click on different pictures here.

If you ask me, the nose of the new Insight looks like the more recent Civic front ends.  And the back end looks like the Accord rear.  There are other cues that are similar to the Prius, like the overall shape…but I’m sure that the aerodynamics involved dictate that silhouette.

The Pelosi: The Future of Personal Transportation

The car you can’t help but love, because Congress won’t leave you any other choices!

We’ve subsidized the features you want and taxed away the rest.

One test drive will convince you that you’d choose it over the import brands. Even if they were still legal.

World’s Fastest Production Car

Cool stuff.

Y’all need to hit my tip jar so’s I can buy me one.  It will only take $1 each, as long as there are 650,000 of you.
