The $80,000 Yugo, Financed By Us Maggot Taxpayers

Four point nine billion dollars up front to Elon Musk for his Tesla companies … plus a $7,500 federal income tax credit and a $2,500 rebate to each and every buyer of the Tesla Model S automobile sold in the USA.  Set aside for a moment what we maggot taxpayers get in return and consider just what the virtue-signalling, eco-warrior purchasers of the Model S themselves get for $80,000:  An unreliable vehicle with the fit and finish of a 1970s Chevy.  A jackwagon for “special” people to be seen in (when it’s actually running.)  Golly gee, with deals like this … Continue reading

Is there a Coup in the Works?

Not long ago Stephen Coonts put out a new book. LIBERTY’S LAST STAND. Islamic terrorists lit the fuse…but a treacherous president planted the bomb. With the nation in shock over a series of Islamist outrages (shooting up a Catholic grade school and a baseball game are just two of them) by “refugees”, the president of the United States – Barry Soetoro – imposes martial law, cancels the imminent presidential election, and suspends the Constitution. In response, Texas secedes—and what follows is the bloodiest, most harrowing internal insurrection since the Civil War. The purges that follow arrest thousands of people, including … Continue reading

The Night Watchman

This is a must read as it will enlighten you as to the workings of our government. A Fairy Tale?? Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert. Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.” So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job. Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?” So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies. Then Congress said, “How will … Continue reading

Transporting Oil and Gas by Pipeline in Canada is 4.5 Times Safer Than by Rail

From Canada Free Press Transporting oil and gas by rail in Canada is a lot more risky than moving it by pipeline, concludes a new study released today by the Fraser Institute, an independent, non-partisan Canadian public policy think-tank. Utilizing newly compiled data from Canada’s Transportation Safety Board (TSB) and Transport Canada, the study, Safety in the Transportation of Oil and Gas, finds that the rate of occurrences (incidents or accidents) per million barrels of oil transported is more than 4.5 times higher for rail than it is for pipelines for the period 2003-2013. “Federally regulated pipelines in Canada currently … Continue reading

That contract, like a number of others for work on remediation and construction projects for the DOE, has never been subject to a federal audit. Other audits for multi-billion-dollar contracts are years behind … Continue reading
