Noo Joisey Ammo Ban

Constitutional Work Around: New Jersey Legislators Move to Ban Ammunition Mac Slavo January 30th, 2012 SHTFplan.com While the second amendment protects our right to bear arms, some anti-gun advocates think they may have found a loophole. This afternoon the New Jersey Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee is set to consider two bills (Assembly Bill…

Mr.

Yes, I am gravely concerned about government meddling in the auto business. One thing makers need to do to make high mileage cars is to be allowed to make them very small–as little as 500 lbs or less. Another thing to reduce weight is to eliminate safety mandates like air bags and other crap

One For Them… One For Us

In the news today, an example of the two-tiered system of “justice” that exists in America – one for us and one for them: Colorado State Rep. Laura Bradford was pulled over by a cop on Jan. 25 after he says he observed her driving erratically. The cop stated he smelled alcohol – and that…

SOPA’s Successor: ACTA

From Washington Watcher: SOPA, PIPA, ACTA … What’s Next? We just beat back SOPA and PIPA with the web blackout. Now everyone is talking about ACTA.

Because your next new car probably won’t come with even a mini-spare – let alone an actual full-size spare tire. The latter has been MIA from all-but-large-luxury cars (and…

2012 Hyundai Veloster

Hyundai thinks it has solved the Access Problem that’s always been a problem for sporty coupes. The 2012 Veloster doesn’t merely have three doors – that’s been done before. It has three different-sized doors. The functional problem is the third door might be on the wrong side (the passenger side) of the car. And even…

Clover

Eric, I have not seen it before so it just occurred to me. Obama is Clover in Chief! Didn’t know where else to say it, so there it is! Seeya! Jay
