Advice: Rock Stars need to stick to promoting Drugs, Sex, Rock
and Roll --and not World Peace! Now, with no Pope to promote the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, we can't afford to lose two
Holy Trinitys in the same week! It was disappointing to learn that
rocker Jon Bon Jovi is not joining the panel for "American Idol" or
"The Voice", but "The White House Council for Community Solutions".
It used to be we could count on Rock Stars to be role models for
leading a decadent lifestyle far worse than our own...now we have
only the politicians to look at. Just because politicians are legalizing
pot, sleeping with prostitutes, and constantly infighting,... it doesn't
mean they can be in a band!

Advice: Automobile companies have to stop selling electric cars that
cannot stay charged longer than my electric razor. The EPA is
reformulating the MPG standards for electric cars and so far they have
determined people in Los Angeles walk their dogs longer than they can
drive the new electric Nissan Leaf. If Thomas Edison had counted on
the batteries in the "Leaf" to test electricity, it would have been over
so fast, people would have thought he was inventing lightening instead
of the light bulb. It's one thing for my iPhone to run out of power during
an important call...but it would be true "Carmageddon" if more than 2
people ran out of "juice" on the 405 freeway at the very same time!

Advice: Dennis Rodman cannot have a "bromance" with Kim Jung-un.
This is what happens when "JDate" tries to expand its clientele. Kim
thought he was in the secret romance section, took one look at Dennis's
secret weapon and put him on the next plane to Pyongyang. For Dennis
...he thought he was answering an ad for a chain of "Korean Massage
Parlors".

Advice: Now that he has been approved as Defense Secretary, Chuck Hagel
has to show he can defend our country, better than he defended himself
against the Republicans. No one has looked that out of sync with Military
leadership, since Michael Dukakis tried to put a helmet on while sitting on
top of a tank! He didn't just turn the other cheek to Lindsey Graham and
John McCain, but had it slapped, pinched and placed on a whoopi cushion.
We are the only country that screens a potential Defense Secretary in open
hearings because public perception plays a critical role in projecting military
strength, but than feels it is necessary to do everything possible to create
the weakest perception possible before approving him!

Advice: The Pope needs to be allowed to still wear his red shoes. The Vatican
announced that the Pope Emeritus will be no longer be allowed to wear his
favorite red shoes after he goes off to a life of prayer and silence. Are they
afraid if he taps them three times he will be able to "get the hell out of there".

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    ...before commenting on them.

    Nissan claims the leaf can be driven 100 miles per charge, 40 or 50 mile stop and go LA freeway trips shouldn't be a problem at all, and forward-thinking employers are starting to place charging ports for their employees to use.

    The Leaf isn't designed to zip up the Five to the Bay Area on the weekends, it's designed for short local trips.

    Somebody's gotta start building electric cars and their infrastructure, and it will invariably get better.

    The car-crazy SoCal loonies are already tampering with various forms of electric cars for various reasons, including extra battery packs for the Prius that double its' electric-driven range, a custom Dodge Challenger Hybrid with a 250 hp electric motor inserted into the Hemi V8 power package, and some fools with a 900-hp Datsun 1200 that turns sub-10 sec quarters at well over 100 mph (I think I read that they ran 125 mph in the quarter and out ran Dodge Vipers and Ferrari sportscars!)

        The conversion of that old Datsun to a muscle e-car is quite amazing.  Like the one guy said, dino fuel cars can't compete with instant torque from an electric motor, and there's no trans, really - just a gear box for the drive train.  What was really neat was hearing that they didn't even have the amps cranked up more than half way, and were turning those kind of numbers.

        Electric cars are at the Model-T stage of development, and the technology is improving dramatically year-to-year.  Anyone running out of juice in their Leaf on the 405 just isn't paying attention to their vehicle, and shouldn't be driving an e-car anyway.  Probably shouldn't be driving at all.

          ...there are a few others that have more about the Datsun, some dragsters and drag bikes, and one about some guys who are imitating the Datsun with a '72 Pinto...

          One of the vids is about the Datsun before they perfected their controller system and it was barely controllable, going from dead to WFO and back again, shredding tires and Ford 9-inch rear ends along the way...

          This shit is one of the things I love about our people, that there are creative lunatics tinkering in garages and dreaming up insane shit just for the hell of it!

    "This Week" and he basically acted like someone playing with his poo.
