When Mother Nature Forecloses
The Internet can be weird and spooky some days; and not just because I post stuff on it. It’s been about three days since I finished the James Howard Kuntsler novel, World Made By Hand. I cruise through Wizbang this AM and see a link to this post, right here, about feral housing in Detroit, MI. Societal decline has weighed heavily on the minds of | Read More »
Det. News: Can’t Even Write About Phone Etiquette Without Obama Love Making a Call
Have you ever met someone that just can’t stop talking about a particular topic or person regardless of the subject of conversation? Folks like that slip their obsession into every conversation until people just don’t even want to start up a conversation with them any more. And when an unsuspecting person starts talking with such a person, everyone in the know around them just roll | Read More »
The slow-motion collapse of Democratic Detroit.
This cannot be sugar-coated, and I have no desire to even try. Retailers Head for Exits in Detroit There was a time early in the decade when downtown Detroit was sprouting new cafes and shops, and residents began to nurture hopes of a rebound. But lately, they are finding it increasingly tough to buy groceries or get a cup of fresh-roast coffee as the 11th | Read More »
Detroit Free Press: Obama Ushers in Era of Oppression of Free Speech?
Looks like it is just starting to dawn on some lefties that Obama is ushering in an era of oppression of free speech. So it seems for Laura Varon Brown of the Detroit Free Press, at least. Oh, she isn’t saying that Obama himself is trampling on free speech, but she is starting to understand that the left’s penchant for political correctness is serving the | Read More »
“GM’s Doomed Future”
For as long as I can remember, most issues of Forbes magazine have been graced by columns on the automotive industry by long-time (more than 50 years) journalist-of-that-industry Jerry Flint. Over the years, my only real gripe with Mr. Flint has been his long-running belief that “we” needed to do more to help the Detroit automakers – a viewpoint that I’ve never shared. But aside | Read More »
‘O’ = Deeply Disturbed, Angry and Dangerous
It is good to use the ‘O’ moniker in polite company when referring to the poseur in residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, since I, as a morally upstanding citizen, find the full use of the name to be profane. It represents the most vulgar and uncivilised and shameful use of political power that has ever befallen the United States of America, and the ‘D’ that | Read More »

Detroit Free Press: Know What we Need? Reparations for Gays
Our friend from Detroit, Jacob Appel, thinks that gays need government reparations and the Detroit Free Press was so enamored of his idea that it published his plea in its April 7 issue. One has a suspicion that they missed a deadline because this story would have more properly been published on April 1, a day well known as April Fool’s Day. This one simply | Read More »
Mr. Williams, the White House is on the line.
The following conversation was NOT recorded. “Roy? Roy! I know you’re busy watching film on the Spartans, but the President would like to talk to you.” “Hello, Mr. President. It’s an honor to speak with you. How are things in Turkey?” “heheh. You prefer kobe steak. Yes sir, that’s a good one. I’m sorry to be short, Mr. President, but it’s a busy day for me. Did | Read More »

Calling All Car Czars!
Breitbart notes that Obama has yet to name his “car czar” and that isn’t helping the situation in dealing with all the crazies in the Motor City. I don’t get it. Based on his cabinet nominations, the main requirements would be: Must be a liberal Democrat Must have spent most of life as a Washington insider Must have written a book that has something to | Read More »
Things are tough all over
Sam Fox has a Long Island auto dealership which sells Cadillacs, Saabs and Hummers. Let me rephrase that – those are the brands his dealership is authorized to sell. He’s not selling many vehicles these days. You don’t have to try to imagine his frustration because he has let it be known. Mr. Fox has written an op-ed which appears in today’s edition of the | Read More »
Boycott the Bailout Babies
The sleazy Detroit automakers are trying to blackmail Congress into preventing a bankruptcy, claiming that the public would not buy cars from a bankrupt company (which is nonsense. The Feds would guarantee people’s warranties, and the automakers would continue making and servicing cars. Do you know people who refuse to fly United because they’ve been through bankruptcy?). The real reason is that in bankruptcy, | Read More »
