Happy Happy New Year!!!!!!

It the year 2012, a year for hope, growth and prosperity for all!

2011 was a dream about Easy Street, but it felt more like I was living on the moon.

And as you know, the Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

On the other hand, it was a good year for this blog since it was a year in which traffic to the site grew by 3X.

Thank you to all our new readers.

I ended up writing 2X the number of posts, averaging about 3 a month. For 2012 I will try to get that to be more like once a week, but no promises.

2012 is going to be an interesting year, and this will be true for politics – and as readers of my blog can tell, I have some very strong political opinions.

Bottom line, we need to get the money out of politics.

The shocker of 2011, was that the new definition of poverty and near poverty came out, and what everyone felt in their lives became a published and confirmed fact – 2 out of 1 American (150 million people) are near the poverty line or under it.

2 in 1 American are technically barely able to make ends meet, or can’t make ends meet.

This is simply unacceptable.

I believe it will change. This will be the year of the protests, and chaos is certain. Be prepared to see the 150 million poor and near poor people let the government and our 1% peers know that it must change. Come spring and summer, the newest social fad sweeping the country will be protesting.

1968 – here we come!!!

On the other hand – from chaos arises opportunity, and from opportunity comes prosperity.

For 2012, I am looking to move to Prosperity Street.

Well, if you are a car fan then you know the beginning of November means that the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) car show in Las Vegas is about to unleash a bunch of customized show cars for 2012!!

This show is not for small customizers anymore, the big boys have been here for sometime now, and 2011 SEMA is no exception.

GM’s HOT

This year has been a good year for GM, and this has been especially true for the new Camaro. To celibrate, Chevrolet is coming to this year’s SEMA show with six hot concept Camaros and Corvette models.

They are designed to show off exactly what the owners can do with their vehicles with a little time, money, hot chicks and imagination.

There will be a number of GM concepts wearing special visual upgrades, including the Camaro Convertible Red Zone Concept, Camaro Synergy Series Concept and the Camaro 1LE Concept.

CAMARO
The Camaro 1LE Concept is oh so hot!! Die-hard Chevy fans will likely recognize the 1LE package code as a road-racing designation, and the concept isn’t a disappointment.

Along with a new rocker panels outside and a new spliter, the Camaro has a magnetic ride control suspension, special chassis bracing, a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox, Brembo brakes and a host of bits lifted from the meaner ZL1. Those include a dual-mode exhaust, shifter and flat-bottom steering wheel, which are a welcome interior upgrade.

Speaking of the ZL1, fans of that machine will enjoy a new Camaro ZL1 Carbon Concept packed with trimmings made from the lightweight weave.

CORVETTE

Corvette fans will also get a chance to take a peek at two special concepts, including a Grand Sport designed to pay tribute to 50 years of the Corvette nameplate at Carlisle and a Corvette Z06 Ron Fellows Hall of Fame tribute car.

I would love to see the Ron Fellow car raced in a NASCAR race, with big Coke logos on the side and Costco plastered all over the front.

Yeah, the Coke Costco Ron Fellows Corvette raced in NASCAR would be a dream made complete with Arnold Schwarzenegger at the flat bottom wheel!!    😉
