The Morning Grumpy – August 10th

10 Aug

It’s going to be a short grumpy this morning.

1. In case you missed it during the whole debt ceiling fiasco, the United States Government has set new fuel efficiency standards for cars and light-duty trucks. The increase to a 54MPG CAFE standard brings us closer in line with European and Asian nations and will begin to slowly reduce our dependence on carbon fuels, or at least maximize available resources.

Yesterday, the President announced new fuel standards for commercial vehicles as well.

2. Song for Wednesday, Part 1: “Market Diktat” by Jean-Philippe Goude


3. Song for Wednesday, Part 2: “Strawberry Letter #23” by Shuggie Otis


4. Dylan Ratigan, LIKE A BOSS! A little unhinged, but an epic 5 minute rant on the root of all evil in the political system. For a few fleeting moments on American television, we heard some real truth and honest talk.


Have a day!

    Interesting rant, and still not granting a realistic timeline. 2 decades my ass. And, Wisonsin results are in.

    Sarah McLaughlin could NEVER ruin my day.

    I happened to be watching Ratigan when he melted down. It was epic. But he is so right on. This is the fight that can bring us together. Let’s hope. Sarah could never ruin my day either.
