We the People Say Again Farewell to Despots and Treason

Now, once again, the courtiers of privilege and wealth are presiding over our fate and using hatred, false patriotism and militias of fascists to enrich themselves, expand their unearned privileges and oppress our Citizen Patriots who voted some of the haters out of office. The rest need to go too, especially all the Republicans who wanted to and continue to try to overthrow our votes and cancel our elections. Our new battles of Lexington and Concord will now take place in voter registration procedures and polling places, and our courts. This is our birthright – we will govern ourselves according to our Constitution. Continue reading

Small Business Pulse Weak – Large Negative Covid Effects

A tip of the AutoInformed racing helmet to Census Bureau employees for doing their jobs whilst under constant and ongoing attacks from the Republicans and COVID19.  Help is on the way for others, but it took the election of President Biden to signal the beginning of the beginning of recovery on 20 January 2021 at noon. Better late than never. But for the suffering it’s small compensation for enduring a President for four years who – based on his actions in office was unemployed all the while being pampered, housed, fed and subsidized – aka welfare for the rich –  by taxpayers he disdains. Continue reading

Whether US Vehicle Sales in 2021? Is 14 Million a Stretch?

AutoInformed puts it to you thus: This is the market price of failed ideologies grimly held by blind true-believers who ignore real data-backed consequences, scientists, epidemiologists, economists and political scientists to their own detriment – if not indeed their own self destruction. Continue reading

Governors Cuomo, Whitmer Call for Investigation Into Trump Administration’s Politicization of Pandemic Response 

“It is an inarguable fact that the United States has had the worst response to the COVID-19 virus of any nation in the world. Nearly 7 million Americans have tested positive for the virus, and more than 200,000 Americans have been killed by it — both more than any other country. The unprecedented and unacceptable scale of this tragedy is the direct result of President Trump and the federal government’s deceit, political self-dealing, and incompetence, they said. This in effect echoes the “we hold these truths to be self-evident” language of  Thomas Jefferson who despised despots who ruled for their own personal gains. Continue reading

California to Subsidize 51 Shell Hydrogen Sites

Socialism for the rich once again. Too bad the CEC doesn’t require some ownership for the capital it is providing. Worse, the Trump misadministration is proposing to roll-back desperately needed methane regulations. Methane, a product of oil drilling is currently burned at the well by flaring. EPA said in the past that over 100 years, methane is estimated to have a global warming potential that is 28 to 36 times that of CO2. Continue reading

4 July 2020 – We Hold These Truths to be Self-Evident

Jefferson, rightly regarded as the clearest, most eloquent writer, created what remains one of our core documents. It simply states that all of us equals could work at Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. This of course led from our Articles of Confederation, to our Declaration and thence to one of the finest organizing documents of the 18th or any other century – our Constitution Continue reading

Noose Found Hanging in NASCAR Garage at Talladega

A noose was found hanging in Bubba’s garage where the #43 Petty Motorsports car with Black Lives Matter displayed over the rear wheels was serviced for the running of the crowd less Talladega Superspeedway race.

NASCAR Finally Bans Confederate Traitors’ Flag at All Races, Venues and Properties

I know that if you ask NASCAR about what it has actively done to integrate the sport and its businesses over the decades – once you get past the self-interested ticket sales of its minority policies – and the deeds are sparse. Continue reading

Thanksgiving 2019 – We Celebrate Our 399th Annual Feast

It was a war that was won – against all odds by militias, and irregulars forcing a standing British Army to surrender in the field for the first time since the tyrant Napoleon – because the Crown and its privileged generals were fighting an idea first put forth in our Declaration of Independence, then codified in our Constitution that “We the People” would govern ourselves. Now, once again, the courtiers of privilege and wealth are presiding over our fate. Continue reading

Fourth of July 2019 – Time to Rid Ourselves of Despots Again

Some – but not enough of us – are marching once again in the spirit of 1776. We need once again to rid ourselves of what has evolved into a ruling class of our own home-grown tyrants, bigots, racists and traitors who collude with other oppressive, anti-American governments. We have progressed from 2.5 million people to more than 325 million with a gross domestic product of more than $19 trillion – an unimaginable number of teabags for a protest not to clutter Boston Harbor, but the halls of Congress today. Continue reading

Trump Mexican Tariffs – Negative on Prices, Economy and Jobs

The Center for Automotive Research, where I am a vice president, estimates that a 5% tariff rate would increase the price of an average new vehicle built in the United States by at least $250. At a 25% tariff rate, U.S.-built vehicle prices would rise at least $1,100. Vehicles imported from Mexico would see sharper price increases — at least $1,100 at 5% tariff rate and at least $5,400 if the tariffs were ratcheted up to 25% by this fall. Overall, the tariffs would reduce U.S. gross domestic product by at least $7 billion to $34 billion annually and cause the loss of 82,000 to 390,000 U.S. jobs.   Continue reading
