Chrysler/Fiat Boneheads Ending PT Cruiser!

Alert! The PT Cruiser Final Addition will launch in the fourth quarter 2010 for sale in 2011 — most likely the final year of the PT. (November 4, 2009)

In an Automotive News interview, Bryan Nesbitt said, “I didn’t like the update they did when they [altered] the headlights. But I find it interesting that Chrysler decided to keep it in production. I believe it is the most profitable small car in Chrysler’s history. ... I’ve always liked the way it looks. I think it looks better when it is lowered two inches with 18 inch wheels.”

As of September 1, 2009, there were under a thousand PT Cruisers available across the United States — less than two weeks’ supply.

According to, they have attained confirmation that 2011 is the final year for the PT Cruiser. At a time when expensive sticker prices on cars are killing the market, and smaller cars are in demand, Chrysler and FIAT have exemplified why they are not market leaders and are allowing the suits who sit in offices, pinching pennies, decide the future. The PT Cruiser is one of the highest quality, popular, and well designed cars that Chrysler has ever created. Shame that the suits don't actually drive the cars they make, opting for large Hemi V8 engines is cool, but an economical alternative for families and fleet sales made the PT one of the most popular cars ever in Chrysler history. They ended the Convertible in 2008, then ended the GT version that actually performed, in 2009, and seems that in 2010 there is just one model option left to purchase. This undoubtedly will kill off the PT Cruiser like the suits want. I guess Chrysler deserved to go under, instead of getting bailouts, when they are unable to make the correct critical decisions to keep good vehicles, and continue to dump money into vehicles that don't sell. How about some of the Jeep models!

PT only needed more performance (keep the turbo), a better larger seat that tracks back more for longer legs, and a larger gas tank.

Obama has granted INTERPOL immunity to operate in US above the law!

"By this EO, Obama has conferred diplomatic immunity upon INTERPOL, exemption from being subject to search and seizure by law enforcement, exemption from U.S. taxes, and immunity from FOIA requests, etc. … Does INTERPOL have a file on Obama – or his associations?"

Congressional Reform Act of 2009

Interesting email I got from a loyal reader and fellow Conservative. I think it is a good one. How about you?

Congressional Reform Act of 2009

1. Term Limits: 12 years only, one of the possible options below.

A. Two Six-year Senate terms
B. Six Two-year House terms
C. One Six-year Senate term and three Two-Year House terms

2. No Tenure / No Pension:

A congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office...

3. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security:
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund moves to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, Congress participates with the American people.

4. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan just as all Americans.

5. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

6. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

7. Congress must equally abide in all laws they impose on the American people..

8. All contracts with past and present congressmen are void effective 1/1/10.

The American people did not make this contract with congressmen, congressmen made all these contracts for themselves.

Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, serve your term(s), then go home and back to work.

Democrats Try to RAM Healthcare on Christmas Eve.

"Democrats are going to do something our side doesn't: Use their moment. They understand that if they use their 60 votes to ram through this health care plan, they can take the hit in 2010, and have the architecture for government annexation of a huge chunk of the individual American's life. Once you do that, it makes small government all but impossible." - Mark Steyn

Obama Replaced by Cardboard Cutout!

The Nobel "Peace" Prize committee yesterday replaced Obama, during a "Feed the Children" benefit concert, with a cardboard cutout. I imagine not many noticed the difference.
