Won’t Pull Forward Clover

Here’s another classic Clover – the won’t pull forward Clover:   He is visually or cognitively impaired; leaves at least half a car length (often, a full car length) between himself and the car ahead – effectively taking up 150-200 percent of the space his car would otherwise take up. This means fewer cars can get…

Left Lane/Won’t Mover Over Clover

Here’s the most cliched and stereotypical Clover – the Clover who won’t move over: I followed this Clover for about half a mile before I turned on the camera. He paced the car in the right lane, so that no one could pass. Even when the car in the right lane fell back – and…

Texas Heroes Conduct Undie Inspection

Administrators at a public school in Texas are investigating why more than 20 elementary school students were lined up and forced to drop their drawers in an unorthodox examination that many parents say went too far. On Monday, several school children reported being divided into male and female groups at a school in the small…

“Hate Crime” Protection For Heroes?

Should it be illegal – a crime in and of itself – to dislike cops? The Fraternal Order of Police – the union for cops – thinks it ought to be. It is officially demanding that cops – already a protected (and entitled) class – be further set apart from ordinary folks by passing legislation that…

Here’s a Lunch Loser…

A “plus-sized” model has become the first obese woman to be signed up by a modeling agency, with 29-year-old Tess Munster being hailed as an “important role model for women,” that is, if being a role model entails promoting a lifestyle linked with innumerable chronic health conditions. Munster, who also goes by the name Tess…

Registration Issues

I’m wondering whether anything can be done to keep the 100-plus “new subscribers” (who are actually spammers and bots) who register here each day from registering (so I don’t have to spend 30 minutes or more every day deleting them) while also making it easier for real people to register… anyone have ideas? I have…

Segway Heroes Don’t Like Being Filmed!

Watch these Segway-riding heroes react to being filmed: Notice, especially, the ugly dyke Heroes. Not exactly “Homeland” material, are they? Interesting how they feel the need to butch up via mirrored glasses and all-black outfits. Take that away and what have you got? Invariably, physically inferior specimens – the sort who probably failed at sports…

2015 Infiniti QX80

Well, gas is cheap again. Does it mean big SUVs (with big, thirsty V8s) will make a comeback? I doubt it. Even though the cost of fuel is down, the cost of everything else has gone up. I don’t buy the happy talk about the “recovery.” No one I know has “recovered.” Most of us…

Lock-Down Nation

While waiting for a dentist appointment, I was listening to a news report about NewYork City being on “lockdown” because of snow. Only the official vehicles of the anointed were at liberty to be out and about. Ordinary citizens were subject to arrest merely for daring to attempt travel. It reminded me of the old Soviet…

4×4 Clover

I rolled up behind this Clover today: It snowed yesterday, you see. Therefore, Clover adjusted his speed to 42 in an (underposted) 55 zone…. just to be safe.
