Tesla

Not only is it a rock band, it's also a new type of car.

And they want to sell direct. But the auto dealerships don't want you to be able to buy them, especially in TX.

It's an electric car that is out of our price range. Our current price range for a new car is about $0-$1,000 drive off the lot. We'll keep the 2001 Mazda pick-up.

We do have a VW Jetta TDI that regularly gets 38mpg. We'll keep that one too.

Here's a good read.

Let's go TX. Pretty sure we have more than a few antiquated laws that we could get off the books.

Patagonia is/seems like an great company.

Here are 6 life lessons from the founder.

Got Time, Read This

This is the 'Grumpy Marsh' blog. I love my state. It needs to be a better example. Texas can do better.

Have some time, read this.

Oops, The TX Miracle

Now, I looked up the 'Washington Monthly'.  Supposedly it's Independent/Libertarian. That should appeal to a lot of folks, but I am sure a lot will read it and say it's not.

Of.By.For

I supported, via Kickstarter, the company that produced this DVD. My copy arrived last week. I watched it once. I will watch it at least once more.

Of.By.For.  Do yourself a favor and watch it. It was not quite what I thought it would be. A critique of both sides, or should I say the one side, of our governmental system.


Anyway, it's well done and has quite a few players from all sides. It is a good critique.

The status quo needs to be changed.

A Follow-Up

I am sure that I will run out of steam with this blog. But, a follow-up to the previous post...

It doesn't sound like the legalization of pot will happen here any time soon, but you have to sit through to about minute 40ish.



I will refrain from posting any other hypocrisies that I might see...and there are quite a few. And, I'll post the same when the actual debate between the running candidates is posted...but that will be awhile.
