Talk about turning over a new leaf at nissan. OK more than the chevy volt, nissan leaf is an affordable electric car. How will it start on cold mornings? That is my worry. Well, you see, electric cars depend on a chemical reaction from the battery, and do not do well in cold weather, but like warm. Also, where does the energy come from to make the car warm. That could mean a reduction in mpg, or in the case of an electric car, it would be kilowatts/hours per kilometer or so.

Forget about getting letters over the weekend because Saturday mail delivery will soon be over. OK so says US postal service. They now want to cut expenses. People this was an old prediction of mine. I told you that rising fuel prices would put in a crimp. Expect more cuts in services in coming years.

Well, suppose you had a choice of what time period you could reside in. The 1950's were the golden age. Jobs were plentiful, cost of living was low, and it was the height of the american empire. People back then were nicer. I believe a time traveller would do well with a 50s slang dictionary.

Today, I went by a Shell station and saw gas over $3/gal. It was selling at $3.09 and my prediction is prices will increase. Back in 2008 when gas went over $4/gal and later crashed I predicted that in 2009 is would go over $2.50/gallon and that in 2010 over $3/gallon. Well, in Feb 2009 when gas was $1.39 a gallon debunkers were laughing. They told me peak oil was a hoax and that gas prices where not going to increase.

Google is a bright light, but its loss means darkness for all of us. What is happening in China today is a harbinger of things to come. Governments want Google to censor.

Sat radio is a failure most epic. It reminds me of sat phone in that it is a great concept, but people do not want to pay... The reason is the people prefer free over a membership price. Satellite radio is getting delisted on nasdaq so get serious. This is one more HDRKID saying that is coming.

Debunkers claim that peak oil is decades away. They seems to forget that it cheap now. The only reason gas is not over $5/gal is our current economic crisis. With millions out of work there are less people going to work everyday and less cars. However, China is growing. The supply of black gold dwindles every single day until it will be no more. Future price of oil is rising. In the last decade we saw a meteoric rise. Well, I predict in this decade you will soon see not only gas shortages, but pay a lot more.

Folks, you do not have to wait for tomorrow, because the future is here now. What could be more futuristic than a flying car? I mean this is not a dream made up. This is a reality that is here now. The Terrafugia Transition is a roadable airplane that is also a car.

Wonder why we still do this clock mess. It does remind us that time is relative and that we are only trying to alter what we measure. Real time does not suffer from this game.

Petroleum price to will soon rise. What we have is both an increase in demand and a decrease in supply of fossil fuel products as more nations industrialize and grow. Expect prices to rise as we consume more.

Large Hadron Collider will be shut down for a year. It seems to me that there is always some problem going on. Perhaps we can get to the bottom of it soon. I wish I could travel to geneva. Would like to see it this year.

OK we are told that high tech is the healthiest region. That it is going to weather the storm in our economy. Well, that said, I would not be buying any high tech right now. For one, I expect out sourcing to the max. In fact, the few remaining factories will be shut down and move overseas. Jobs in america will vanish like vapor. Few will create new technologies that would cause new jobs to appear. The machine is broken and instead of fixing it politician say that all is fine and I am wrong. Folks, that is not going to solve our situation, and what will take place is a new crisis.

Debunkers claim that all is fine, but they do not hear under their feet the groaning ice. It is getting ready to crack and when it does they will do the debunker flipflop that is so common. That and claim that all my predictions are obvious and that they are easy to see. Well, back in 2005 when I did warn you. Yeah, about GM going bankrupt making fun of me was easy. GM was a much bigger company. It seemed a lot stronger than now.
It is time to wake up. Few can now see what is coming. Time to turn on your high beams and focus on the road ahead if you wish to avoid crashing your car. It is time to prepare.

OK, we are told we are in an economic recovery. Where are the help wanted signs? Instead, what I see is every single mall and small town square has more has more openings. I am not talking jobs, but vacancies. Boarded up store fronts are now common. Folks, this was not the case a few years ago. There are now more empty stores than ever before and many more will close in the coming year. Get ready for ghost malls to become common.

College tuition is going up. This is a scam. Why go to school when there are no jobs out there for you. I think people need to realize that this is dead end street without a chance for improving. It costs a lot of money. You get a worthless piece of paper.

Pickens Plan to free america from foreign oil using wind turbines is gone with the wind and then some. There is no push for the gov for anything except a new carbon tax to increase revenue. Pickens will cut capacity of his wind projects and pull back on natural gas. Basically osama wants nuclear power. Forget all this talks of going green. The only green politicians want is money.

Get ready for a new postal service. People now use email and other forms of distribution of letters that do not involve paper. This means the game is on. In the future mail delivery could be a fond memory. In some ways much like the fabled old west pony express.

People are accusing Senator Bunning of abuse of power. This man is doing a filibuster blocking unemployment money. The question is why, and the answer is power. He crushes the poor. There was plenty of money to bail out banks went they were in woe. I see is billions for banksters, but not one penny for the poor.
