China uses an effective speed bump to slow down traffic *coughs*people trying to defect*coughs*

August 27, 2008

Authorities in the ShanXi province of China apparently had enough of speeders.  So, they erected these 100 ft. long sections of concrete.  Standing 2 ft. high, they’re curved to maintain a constant slow speed.  Why is it when I look at them all I think of is how fast could I drive a car through there and end up on the other side in relatively good shape?  Also, it’s not my car.

Artist Scott Wade turns ordinary, dirt-covered cars into his canvases.

Click link to see a slide show of his work renditions of Albert Einstein and the painting “American Gothic.” Good stuff.

I suppose flipping the bird doesn’t really convey all you need to while driving.

Detroit Houses Cheaper than Cars–UAW labels all houses as “scabs” and automatically demands a pay raise.

June 3, 2008

Cheap houses and unlicensed handguns at record levels in Detroit. Thanks to our friends at Students for a Free Economy (SFE) who not only provided the link, but also wrote the best headline. “Homeless and living in your car? Cheaper alternatives are here!”

Let’s hope that Jennifer Granholm and the state Dems can tax us out of this.

If only there was a solution for both of these problems…..

You’re going to want to get that truecoat. Free gun, too.

May 24, 2008

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) – A Missouri car dealer said on Thursday sales have soared at his auto and truck business since launching a promotion this week that promises buyers a free handgun or a $250 gas card with every purchase.

Max Motors, a small Butler, Missouri dealership that has as its logo a grimacing cowboy wielding a pistol, has sold more than 30 cars and trucks in the last three days, far more than its normal volume. And owner Mark Muller credits his decision to start offering buyers their choice of a $250 gas card or a $250 credit at a gun shop.

“This thing has taken off. Sales have quadrupled,” said Muller. The store sells both used and new vehicles including General Motors and Ford products.

Every buyer so far “except one guy from Canada and one old guy” has elected to take the gun, Muller said. Muller recommends his customers select a Kel-Tec .380 pistol.

“It’s a nice little handgun that fits in your pocket,” he said.

Muller said the promotion was inspired by Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, who is vying with Hillary Clinton to be the Democratic nominee for the presidential election in November.

“We did it because of Barack Obama. He said all those people in the Midwest, you’ve got to have compassion for them because they’re clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive.”

“We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns,” said Muller. “I’ve got a gun in my pocket right now. I have a rifle in my truck. We’ve got to shoot the coyotes out here, they’re attacking our cows, our chickens. We’re not clinging to nothing. We’re just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want. This is the way it ought to be.”
