Nissan warranty seems to be 5 years or 60,000 miles whichever comes first. Nissan is probably a better bet than Gov Mo, but not absolutely a sure thing either.

Anyone got a decent estimate of replacement battery cost? Cuz I don't keep cars 5 years or even 8 years, I drive the wheels off of them. And even if I did, a wise buyer of a used car would either discount the purchase or insist the battery is replaced.

Johnny Depp is thinking of retiring. I think I shall faint (said in my best Val Kilmer/Doc Holliday accent).

The good news is that you can buy replacement engines for a very wide range of cars. But for EV's, I don't know what they will do.

The only way to make money from almost any car is to drive it into the ground. EV's will probably have to be recycled using specialized equipment. As it is I am not sure how the recyclers do it these days.

With so many parts made of different plastics it's not like the good old days when they stripped them out and then dumped them into a smelter.

Anyone else have the same reaction as I did, when hearing Zero wants to close down Freddie Mac and Fnma ? Its the first thing that he has said beyond "hello" that I have agreed with. Of course I highly suspect he does not really mean it, and will want to spend a bunch of money on well intentioned but fatally flawed housing programs now with a "promise" to close the zombies much later. NFW.

When you see this scam of a lawsuit, one is right to be suspicious:

Don't look now but a Republican Senate is in view:

A new Conservative Intel Poll of 587 likely Arkansas voters finds that even though 40 percent of Arkansas voters don’t know enough about the freshman congressman to form an opinion about him, he still leads incumbent Sen. Mark Pryor, D, by a narrow two-point margin — 43 percent to 41 percent.

The result is within the poll’s four-point margin of error, and so the two are technically in a statistical tie. But it’s a bad sign for Pryor, a two-term incumbent in the U.S. Senate, that he is polling so poorly against a relatively unknown opponent — 40 percent of Arkansans don’t know enough about Cotton to form an opinion.

The low numbers for Pryor are roughly consistent with a poll released earlier this week by the public employees’ union AFSCME, which showed the incumbent with similarly low levels of support (43 percent).

Gmax

Kay Hagan should also be quaking in her boots thinking about 2014.

Gmax, if Zero said that 1+1=2, I'd check it on a calculator. And if the calculator agreed, I'd assume it was broken.

Leno has nothing to lose. I'd be interested in his questions. He just might surprise even Zero.

BTW, we just told Frederick we are celebrating his 10th birthday in Paris this year. He's all smiles. Will do it on a bateaux mouche at sunset. He loves Montemarche and mass at Sacre Coure. So that is on the agenda.

I laid off of that one most assiduously. Glad I did so.

Gmax - The other day I was trying to form a word in my head and kept typing "dardanele". I start paged it and the closest thing to come up was a small town in Arkansas. The next day Tom Cotton, of whom I knew nothing at the time, announced his Senate run from Dardanelle, AR. It's got to be a sign, right? :)

In actuality, I was typing "dardanelle eyes" which might be a good country song now that I think about it. :)

bgates, I held my breath as I read your post.

Hemmingway thought the more important parts were the ones not written. At least that's what he told me in Sun Valley last summer.

Somehow having the Senate by scoring McCain and Grahm on our team is less than satisfying.

Danube on iPad

I thought the CNN piece was pretty good, considering the source.

I do not understand how any American can find Hillary Clinton anything other than gruesomely repellent. But then I reflect on the fact that the ratio of those who watched this broadcast to those who regularly read People and Parade is probably on the order of .05.

There really is no hope. This is the nation we have become, and it isn't pretty at all. At bottom, the nation as a whole no longer deserves to survive.

OL,

I certainly agree regarding those two duds. I'm rather curious as to what the decision by the Sulzbergers and Grahams portends regarding the future of ProgBrand. You wouldn't think they would book such horrendous losses if they had any hopes at all.

One might speculate the October 1st kickoff of BOzocare may have had as much impact on their decision to toss in their hand as it did on the future plans of Max Baucus. They may foresee the electorate actually using their lying eyes for a change.

Good to read about GW Bush's successful stent implant surgery.

Three years ago this evening, at about this time, I was being rolled out to the CCU unit after having a stent implanted. I had a case of (mostly) asymptomatic heart disease, leading to an unexpected heart attack at an early age.

Had I been out hiking, shooting, camping, etc. that day, I would not be here today.

So tonight calls for a drink, to celebrate the good fortune to be living in the U.S., and to have access to the finest healthcare in the world.

Please JOMers, read about Tom Cotton on wiki or via his own website and consider a small donation (LUN) if you are able to do so. I've been an avid follower since hearing him interviewed on Hugh Hewitt before his congressional race, and sent him what I could then. His win was a rare happy moment on that otherwise horrible night. One Tom Cotton in the U.S. Senate will ease some of the heartache we've had to endure.

this is interesting (via Glasater's tea party group on FB) - http://www.thegunmag.com/gun-control-playbook-tips-being-used-in-wa-initiative-effort/

"The GQR document also advises that “An emotionally-driven conversation about what can be done to prevent incidents…is engaging.”...

" Its first point: “The core frame should be personal and emotional—centered on ‘people’ and not on facts, laws, or legislation.”"
Emotion, not facts....that about sums up the left.

[OT} Top of the morning to you all!

Five weeks ago my urologist said seven of the 12 cores in the prostate biopsy came back positive, 45-60% abnormal with a Gleeson score of 6. The good news, he said, is that I'll be cancer free by the end of the year.

So I am off to Crouse Hospital in Syracuse now for a 1:30 appointment for 90 minutes with a DaVinci knife operated by a well-respected surgeon who has done 1100 removals. Then it is home tomorrow for a week of R&R while the resection of the bladder with the ureter heals. Piece of cake, so long as the pain meds work. Then six weeks not lifting.

Since one in three men seem to wrestle with prostate problems, do pay attention to your doc when told that a PSA over four ought to be checked. Mine was 5.2 at age 65. Prognosis 99% good, but won't know for 10 days if the cancer was contained in the capsule.

I expect to be back online late tomorrow or Friday, although doped up. Best to you all, and thanks for all you do. [/OT]

I'd like to second (A)B's comment regarding Tom Cotton. The link goes to his opening campaign announcement and you'll find he does not mince words.

His framing "Mark Pryor is the reason Obamacare is the law today." can be used against every Democrat Senate incumbent. It's the reason why Max Baucus made the wise decision to spend more time with his family.

RickB-- I think that's right. ObummerCare and the continued lack of jobs will be the issues in 2014 (unless our friends from the religion of peace do something truly horrible.) Obummer outperformed polls by 3-5 Million votes by aggressively getting out older black voters with traditional GOTV, and single women and 20 something whites with social media. Will Dem Senators be successful with those groups-- what do they offer them? I think the opposite will be happenning-- chaos over paying ObummerCare fines and malfunction 'Exchanges". Everyone of the Dem Senators can be blamed, and every repub can say 'I told you so'.

James D.

Shooting fish in a barrel, I know, but...

Obama wouldn’t say what he would call Snowden – who has been labeled a hero and a traitor by different parties. The U.S. government has accused of him being a criminal.
“We don’t know exactly what he did, except what he said on the Internet and it’s important for me not to judge,” Obama told Leno.

So when a local cop stops a Harvard professor, he "acted stupidly", and when a teenager in Florida is shot he "could have been my son"...but when there's a massive security breach at the NSA leading to a huge scandal, strained relations with allies, and a confrontation with Russia...our President can't think of a thing to say. Got it.

And what, exactly, does this mean:

“The odds of dying in a terrorist attack are a lot lower than they are of dying in a car accident, unfortunately,”

What's unfortunate (other than the fact that Zero is President, I mean)?

How can any person with even a semi-functional brain still support this man?

CH @ 8:38 - I just saw the Romney article. it's even worse than you imply...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/08/06/romney-warns-against-government-shutdown-saying-gop-would-suffer/

“Emotion is understandably at play in Washington among some of our fellow Republicans,” Romney said, according to his prepared remarks. “I badly want Obamacare to go away, and stripping it of funds has appeal. But we need to exercise great care about any talk of shutting down government. What would come next?”
Romney warned of soldiers not being paid, seniors fearing their Medicare and Social Security checks might stop, and FBI agents being forced off duty.

Thanks for writing the next Dem attack ad, Mitt.

However, Romney singled out Secretary of State John F. Kerry for praise, saying he should be commended for his effort to bring peace to the Middle East. Romney called it “a success.”

Seriously?

Romney, who has made clear he will not run for office again, mused about the choice before Republicans in selecting a presidential nominee in 2016. He urged Republican primary voters to “stay smart.”
“Staying smart also means backing candidates that can win,” Romney said. “I greatly appreciate the support the New Hampshire Republican voters gave me. I know that some of you may have actually lined up more with one of the other GOP candidates, but you gave me your nod because you felt I had the best chance of beating President Obama.”

"Smart"? Smart would be actually running an aggressive campaign that, you know, made a real effort to win, rather than the mushy, half-assed effort that refused to aggressively go after Obama - and backed off the one time they did, and it actually showed positive results.

You're a nice guy, Mitt, and a charitable individual, and a great businessman...but you sucked as a Presidential candidate, and your judgment about future candidates is worth less than nothing.
