Man was a creature about the size of a raccoon then. It hot, humid, and we had an inland sea that split America in half. We also had very lush vegetation and giant dinosaurs. Hey maybe we could grow chickens the size of T Rex?

<quoted text>Honda announced that it would be offering a Hy-Brid two years prior to rolling out the Insight in 1999. It was a very weird little car that only drew interest from the popular mechanics crowd and at the time when auto companies were extending factory warranties the Insight's warranty was pitiful.
It was like Honda didn't really want to sell many of the 70ish MPG cars.
Well, they didn't sell many of the early Insights but there were a bunch of collateral sales of Civics, Accords, CRV's and of course Odyssey's.
Within a few years many car companies were selling Hy-Brids and today the technology is not at all strange or scary.
Electric vehicles, and advanced hybrids will go the same way__once the market defines itself, the pricing will follow suit.
Step one__step two etc.
BTW you said that one of the reasons you bought your home was that it had geothermal/water cooled heat pump etc HVAC.
You were a trailblazer for HVAC yet you're a fraidy cat when it comes to efficient autos.
Honda did not demand taxpayer subsidies.

Galt does not care if GM wants to produce electric cars that nobody wants, as long as the taxpayer is not required to pay.

However, GM would have been wise to develop an adequate battery before the car.

When Tiger Woods is your teammate, it's hard to lose. Still, President Obama has a pretty good game, according to the world's second-ranked golfer.
President Obama and Woods played golf over Presidents' Day weekend, and Woods divulged on Tuesday that they teamed up to beat the other players in their foursome, U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and Houston Astros owner Jim Crane.
Asked how one gets an invitation to play with the president, Woods joked, "He calls up and says,'Hey Tiger you wanna play?'

Galt will take on Obama at golf any day, even up, and beat his ass like a drum. Galt doubts that Obama can break 100 on a tough course, if playing by the rules.

While Obama/Michelle are Jetting off to Florida/Aspen on Taxpayers Dollars Michelle shutting down Aspen airspace, Obama hiring Professional Golf Instructors at $1000.00 Dollars an hour, Obama sure doesn’t seem empathetic to the suffering of the American Taxpayer due to his Failed Economic Policies!! This is a President acting like an Emperor!!

Actually it doesn't. Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey have similar bans and from 1994 to 2004 the federal government had the same thing. Even conservative Justice Antonin Scalia stated that;
“Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited,” and also;
“not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose.”
You're an idiot!
Come on Petey, Why isn't it in force now? Because it was unconstitutional. Scalia can have his own opinion, does mean it will pass scrutiny in legal opinion. You're a imbecile.

Jimmy Buffet coming to the Farm Bureau Live Amphitheater July 13th. He wouldn't play here for years because the communist city of Virginia Beach didn't allow the Parrotheads to tailgate before the show. Glad to see saner heads prevailed.

Conservative opinion writer Byron York does a pretty good job of dismantling House Speaker John Boehner's illogical position on the sequester:

In a Wall Street Journal op-ed Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner describes the upcoming sequester as a policy “that threatens U.S. national security, thousands of jobs and more.”

Which leads to the question: Why would Republicans support a measure that threatens national security and thousands of jobs?

York's real problem with Boehner is that he believes Boehner is doing a bad job of making the case for the sequester. In other words, York thinks Boehner is making a mistake by criticizing the sequester in such harsh terms. But that particular train has already left the station—Boehner has repeatedly said the sequester is the worst thing ever, but that he wants it to happen. York accurately describes that paradoxical position as "untenable." Moreover:

The effect of Boehner’s argument is to make Obama seem reasonable in comparison. After all, the president certainly agrees with Boehner that the sequester cuts threaten national security and jobs. The difference is that Obama wants to avoid them.

Anti-Hagel Campaigners Furious Over “Friends Of Hamas” Blooper

Just kidding! Senate offices run the other way, but Friedman won't burn his source.

Opponents of Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel are fuming in the aftermath of sloppy work by their allies that has backfired and risks turning their cause into a joke.

The bumble: A thinly sourced claim that Hagel had taken money from a heretofore unheard of group called "Friends of Hamas," floated by the conservative website Breitbart.com , and sourced to Capitol Hill.

"This sort of thing drives me crazy because it undermines legitimate concerns about Sen. Hagel, his views and financial associations," said a Senate Republican aide involved with the anti-Hagel efforts. "In this business we deal in facts or the pursuit of facts and making up groups like the Friends of Hamas distracts us from legitimate questions as to what private foreign foundations and wealthy foreign individuals are contributing to the Atlantic Council or investing in Sen. Hagel's firms."

I love how you and Flack place everything in a Ace Hardware Store perspective.

As a result of it's early entry into the hybrid vehicle market Honda owns many of the patents necessary to be competitive in the manufacture of those vehicles.

The Volt project was in progress long before you ever heard of DaBammy pal.

Do we really need to revisit your nonsense every week?

What's Rick Wagoner doing these days?

I could sit here & spew anti white rhetoric back at you, but what will that prove? If infact everything you posted is true, it also proves nothing! Other than the fact that you can't handle the truth. You can refute my claims when a white guy is better than MJ, both of them, or when a white guy is better than Ali, or when a white guy is better than Hank Arron or Barry Bonds, when a white guy is better than Tiger Woods, or Jerry Rice or Emmitt Smith & the list goes on. Until then stfu & do not respond with your nonsense. Stay on topic if that possible!
