    'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

    Theodore Roosevelt 1907

When will Detroit stop stifling competition?

I’m not sure what got me to thinking about it but I was browsing the net looking for information on the Tucker. Remember the tucker? Only 51 were ever made and they were shut down because of a lawsuit brought by the government (and pushed for by the big three). The car was way ahead of it’s time. Well, they (the big three) have done it again.

While browsing, I happened on a website called “There He Is.com” and in a recent article, they said:  “While the Big 3 Automakers are begging for the Federal Government to save them from their own shitty business decisions, they are also doing their best to hide innovations by any other US Automaker. Take for example, the AFS Trinity XH-150 Extreme Hybrid. It is a concept Hybrid SUV that gets 150 MPG. (see video below)  But because none of the big 3 invented it, they are using their influence to prevent people from finding out. How?” Read the article here.
