This old dear, a Type II V-Dub (pictured) still pulls yeoman’s duty in Alameda, CA… and it was made the same year I was!
A presidential candidate sketches on a cocktail napkin, and someone tries to flog it on eBay. Somehow, I don’t think the proceeds will go to his campaign.
The bees, the bees, the bees. What’s going on with the bees? Probably the same culprit responsible for global warming, the peak oil crisis, the real estate bubble, and Cheney’s
war folly in Iraq. Yes, that’s right, Mr. Ignorance, I see you lurking back there! You’re outed!
Speaking of Peak Oil, let’s see a show of hands: how many people out there think the price of gasoline is high because it is in short supply? Uh-huh. How many think it’s because of slowing production? MMmm-K. What about taxes- how many think the four dollars per gallon we shall soon be paying might be due to taxation? Really? I’m not surprised. What do you think about market lag- any noticeable effect? And lastly, what do you think about ethanol- that mixing costly ethanol dilutes combustive energy, who thinks this might explain the surge in price? Anybody? OK, well, I see, we’re going need to edumacate y’all… again.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the lone female voice of the supreme court, and she’s sounding more and more like a voice in the wilderness. She is at least speaking up about decisions the court has allowed to squeak by with a slim margin. Shame it doesn’t have the same affect as the signing statements Clueless makes when he doesn’t veto a law- he just says he won’t enforce it. Dereliciton of duty for Clueless, anyone? And still, Silent Clancy never utters a word, just uses his rubber stamp.
