Time for Hypermiling, Haggling, and Hybrid's? or Demanding INNOVATIVE Idea's? ... (Jumping for Joy in AMERICA PT.1)
"Jumping for Joy in America" will be another series to start in this journal because we are also a nation who turn's on and off quicker than a speedfreak on steroid's slamming energy drinx : ) Push our button's and we will respond the exact way you want us to, and whenever we ask for anything from any of the 3 entities that control our subconscious, emotion's, economic and social lives (3 Entities are mega religion's, mega corporate's/ finance, and mega puppet government's), as I have said time and again ... they will only give you a sliver of what you ask for providing they can twist it to capitalize off it to their advantage. And it even work's with our social injustices even ... ask for a basic right such as same sex marriage, and instead they will give you new rules that you can now say your gay and not have to hide it or your mates, then use your want's to make you have to haggle more shit once you get caught up in their pop culture way of thinking and acting. Basically our lives are put on hold.
What inspire's Part One of this series is the recent concern again over rising gas/ petro prices ... I see it weekly at the pump's ... the person on the other side of the pump looking at the scales in frustration and/ or shaking their head's, folk's whining daily, but feeling helpless to be able to do a bloody thing, the constant update's from the media's ... and of course the usual mouthpieces to tell us what we already know and despise with our happy face mask's on. I'm one of them fella's that "act's" ... life is not too long (at least at this point of our evolution), and I dont waste much time ... when something dont work, I dispose of it and move on to something else, if other's arent doing it, and just accepting what their told ... I'm going to do what I have to do to stay one step ahead and disassociate myself with those and/ or any roadblock's. Yet, when we get any of these bone's/ dog biscuit's tossed to us, and save a few cent's/ buck's for a couple month's on petro or other thing's we consume in mass ... we jump for joy as if we were done a favour, and constantly being told that we alway's need to sacrifice more.
The first video clip below show's how to save every drop of petro that you can, in order of course to save money ... at the same time I may add ... you can do some serious damage to other component's of your vehicles if you are not aware of the flip side of what you are doing, which of course will/ can result in major expenses for repair's. Even if you are one who does the repair's yourself, your still talking about down time as well as part's expenses, and I can assure you today's vehicles are nothing like the ones we old schooler's worked on ourselves even only 20 year's ago. In the case below of Wayne Gerdes ... I can just look at this video and tell you that this will wear out your distributor cap/ rotor's, it screw's with the multi fuel injection port's, chip/ relay's that control the under dash computer, timing, and most expensive below probably being the transmission problemo's this will cause, and you know damn well that even a decent rebuilt transmission would have you down a week and cost at least a grand ($1000). THINK as well while you "act".
APRIL 22, 2011 UPDATE NEWS: VARIOUS LINK'S ON RISING GAS PRICE'S ... You can "bet" were getting screwed basically, even the market oil price's are not fluxuating like the pump's are ... ABC World News this evening was reporting and .11 cent's increase across the Garden State of New Jersey just overnight ... this is a "scam" ... bank on it.
"MDI RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT" ... Some read and video link's

The thing is, I been following this stuff for at least 5 year's now, and even the link's here and vid's are at least a few year's old, so none of this is "new", yet try to find any of these vehicles on the road's in America. We are constantly thinking about these hybrid's that cost an arm and a leg, and even the repair's I can imagine would be high looking under the hood's of a couple of these myself. Or we are thinking about car's that are all electric and over priced, where you may be hauling and sitting on a quarter ton of batteries that take hour's to charge for a hundred miles here and there, etc. Sure ... it's a step ... but not enough in my opinion. Also we have too much advertising/ promotion's/ marketing lacking in this area of alternative vehicles, yet ... I look at these as a sure big win investment of the very near future. Supply is supposed to meet demand, it's just that we dont demand enough, and quickly accept what we are sold.
Some think it's because it would hurt the car and petro industries ... it wont ... the car industries need to produce competitively and if they dont ... FAIL ... not get our sympathy, handout's, or dollar's ... that IS "free market" ... is it not? The mega petro producer's have so much to sell as it is, since damn near every damn thing we use from diaper's, to our tele's, computer's, utensil's, and a long list of product's that come from petro ... PARTIAL LIST OF 144 OF 6000 PRODUCT'S THAT COME FROM PETROLEUM ... plus all those huge transport vehicles, land, sea and military/ defense will use plenty still (and are the largest consumer's of such at that) ... so that idea is simply excessive and imbalanced greed is all.
Some folk's dont look at these vehicles as practical or in conjuction with what customer's want ... but customer's are only accustomed to that which is available. I also look at these vehicles of personal use, as very essential to having much cleaner air in our urban areas that cover the globe, it is easy to vision a few billion of these on our urban road's for instance, and is a huge market and job's creator ... and great investment's for many. Yet ... for 5 year's at least ... I been bringing this up to people as barbeque chat/ small talk ... and I hardly find anyone that even know's a damn thing, or heard about these car's and innovative technologies in air compression engines, despite how long this has been in the worx. How will people know and be able to shop without a stronger presence? In the meantime ... most folk's are worrying themselves to madness over whether to buy the gas at inflated prices or have enough money for other essential's they need ... with these mega finance folk's agreeing to finance them to buy another vehicle which could just be a stepping stone throwaway concept obsolete in less than a decade ... haggling deal's with dealership's that take hours of the sales rep running back and forth to the manager, then to top it off ... for a couple thousand more dollar's (also financed) they will sell you a guarantee/ extended warranty that you wont have to worry if your new highly marketed vehicle you bought will break down and cost you another limb in repair cost's, and a clear- coat over the body to assure you the paint job wont crack and peel and fall off.
And credit below in this next video to folk's like Guy and Cyril (son) Negre of MDI Reseach and Development and Angelo Di Pietro ... these are "truly" the elite types of humanity.
