What Is The Point of Crab Mode on the New Electric Hummer?
I'm glad to see the Hummer brand back. I thought it was killed off too early. And, I'm glad to see a true electric car contender from Detroit. However, there seems to be infatuation with doing things just because you can do them and a failure to understand what is really valuable.

The Economic Stimulus Checks Are Another Argument for a Wealth Tax

NBC Just Did an Idiotic Story about Emotional Support Animals
I walked in on NBC nightly news playing. And I ended up seeing a story about airlines charging a fee for people that are bringing on emotional support animals. Which ticks me off is how NBC misled viewers.
