Boycott Dr. Evil! – Saving Gas is Saving the planet

Posted on:

I ask all my readers (all three of them) to boycott Texaco-Chevron (the Drilling Oil Evil A-Holes and from now on, we will refer to as Dr. Evil for short.)

I am not asking you to boycott Dr. Evil because of the stupid little talking car commercials, as a matter of fact, I kinda like those commercials.I am asking because Dr. Evil is trying to destroy our planet!

In 1964 Dr. Evil built and operated an oil production lair in the Ecuadorian rainforest, dumping over 19 billion, YES BILLION gallons of toxic waste-water into the rainforest.

This wretched event was called “Operation W.T.F.”Wasting-Toxic-Foul-water.

This operation (that is no joke!) has affected countless lives, both human and other animals, not to mention the horrid effect this has had on OUR planet and for what??????????????????? Answer: So Texaco/Chevron could save some money by dumping irresponsibility and illegally, DR. EVIL GREED.

Exxon Valdez and B.P. oil spills were “accidental” and yes we should stop all off-shore drilling, it is having too much of a bad impact on our environment, but Texaco/Chevron was just pure evil!What’s a good way to get back at Dr. Evil, besides kicking him directly in the mini-me?The answer:

  1. Boycott Texaco/Chevron!Nothing hurts an evil giant corporation more than seeing their sales drop.
  2. Cut back on your over-all gasoline consumption.Don’t leave your car running in park.Try car pool or public transportation.
  3. Keep your vehicle’s emissions in check.

This blog is not meant to give the finger to corporate America.Our society and way of life depends on large corporations thriving but they have a responsibility to do that in an ethical way that doesn’t put us or the planet in jeopardy.

Join us again next week as my partner, Daun Thompson continues her adventure with her teenage driver.Until then…

Take care and be safe-

Defensive Driving Announcement: Pass it on!

Posted on:

Pass this information along to everyone you know.

With the increase of law enforcement agencies using “un-marked” police vehicles to help in fighting the “war on speeding,” it has made it easier for cowards to impersonate police officers. Police have been utilizing this clever tactic of minivans, SUVs and trucks in aiding with the element of surprise when it comes to road rage, drunk drivers as well as speeders. But as a woman or good looking’ dude (who looks like one of the fancy boys on Jersey Shore) be careful, pulling over immediately for an un-marked police car could be the end of your bottom chastity.

Always have a cell phone with you when you drive in case of an emergency. An emergency is not letting everyone know that you are driving on _____ (insert local freeway here) on your Facebook or Twitter but to have in-case you are being pulled over by an unmarked police car or you are involved in an accident or witness an accident.

This article is not meant to scare anyone; chances are very likely you will never be involved in these situations, especially if you look like Nancy Grace but just in-case:

A student of mine told me she was driving on a freeway in Dallas, Texas. A man in a Crown Vic pulled up beside her with a flashing blue light in the dash like Hawaii Five O. The man was waving a badge and motioning her to pull over.

“Something about it didn’t seem right.”

My student pulled her cell phone and called 911. When the predator saw the phone he took off. The 911 operator told her to keep driving; the police are on the way. She said they pulled over the imposter, ran his ID and come to find out he was a registered sex offender!

If an un-marked police car is attempting to pull you over hit your flashers and call 911, don’t pull over immediately! Get a general description of the car and license plate number if you can. Mile markers that correspond closely to an exit number on the highway are there for a reason and know where you are or at least a general idea of which one of the 50 states you’re in.

If you have 10 cars behind you with flashing red and blue lights….and a helicopter with an infrared spotlight on you, then it’s safe to pull over.

Join me again next week and until then,

Take care and be safe-
