Where do teenagers get the money for marijuana?
They're selling their Ritalin.
1959 Cadilac Cyclone concept car.
'59 Caddy Cyclone:
Only 44" high, equipped with radar crash detector.
"The Cyclone looked more like a jet aircraft than a car, its two fenders resembling rockets. The two flat door Segments could be slid back. The revolutionary design was matched by the radar-sensing crash avoidance system and the Plexiglas bubble-top that automatically closed when its sensor detected rain."

Detroit: How 50 straight years of Democrat rule
have destroyed a once great city:
Below: Detroit's emergency manager, Kevyn Orr,
lays out a plan.
[It is easier to give birth than resurrect the dead]
" According to Mr. Orr’s report, Detroit has more than 78,000 vacant structures, 66,000 vacant and blighted lots, thousands of non-functioning street lights and a demoralized police force that takes nearly an hour, on average, to respond to 911 calls.
This is an unspeakably sad situation for Detroit’s 700,000 remaining residents, only a third of whom have jobs. It’s a crisis rooted deep within the history of a city that, for many years, rose and fell economically with the auto industry — while poverty, racial segregation, crime and official corruption festered.
Wisely, Mr. Orr focused not on how Detroit got to this catastrophic crossroads but on where it goes from here. He leavened his dire picture of the present with a hopeful plan for the future. It calls for a 10-year, $1.25 billion investment in public services that would remake... "
"When people see a strong horse and a weak horse,
by nature, they will like the strong horse,"
Osama Bin Laden famously said.
The deceased mass murderer had a point ...
"Sentimentalists may admire the horse that lets other horses win so they don't get too upset and kick it around in the stable that night, but the crowds do not flock to cheer on losers. Nor can kings and prime ministers be expected to stake their fortunes and futures on the horse that loses so other horses feel good about themselves.
When Obama arrived in Cairo to tell the Muslims of the world that America does not want to fight, let alone win, he was declaring that America was now the weak horse. "We do not want to keep our troops in Afghanistan," he assured the Muslim Brotherhood attendees, and told them that, "events in Iraq have reminded America of the need to use diplomacy."
The murder of an American ambassador and the
sight of his corpse being dragged through the streets
by a mob should serve as a reminder that the
United States can either be a strong horse or
it can be a dead horse, but it cannot, as Obama
tried to do, choose not to run. "
'I Miss Chicago'
in Ft. Myers, Florida the day before we left for Iowa and I saw a bumper sticker
on a parked car that read: "I miss Chicago."
So, I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker and left a note that read, "I hope this helps ."
