Now this is a product that makes no sense to me. Either run, walk, or get a regular pedal bike. But I am sure the liberals will love this one!
Hambrock and Spetter explain that their goal is to create a more environmentally friendly transport for crowded urban settings. It’s unclear how the prototype is an improvement over conventional bicycles, which also do not generate pollution and are less physically demanding than the Fliz. However, Hambrock and Spetter say creating a healthier mode of transportation is also part of their vision for the Fliz.
The Daily Mail reports that Hambrock and Spetter have entered their design into this year’s James Dyson Award competition, which awards a £10,000 ($15,924) top prize to the winner.

Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, writes today that Obama should resign for violating his oath of office and resorting to intimidation and thuggery against the man affiliated with the so-called anti-Islam movie:
INSTAPUNDIT – WHY BARACK OBAMA SHOULD RESIGN. Just for the record, this is what it looked like for a man who made a film that made the Obama Administration uncomfortable:
Here’s the key bit: “Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
When taking office, the President does not swear to create jobs. He does not swear to “grow the economy.” He does not swear to institute “fairness.” The only oath the President takes is this one:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
By sending — literally — brownshirted enforcers to engage in — literally — a midnight knock at the door of a man for the non-crime of embarrassing the President of the United States and his administration, President Obama violated that oath. You can try to pretty this up (It’s just about possible probation violations! Sure.), or make excuses or draw distinctions, but that’s what’s happened. It is a betrayal of his duties as President, and a disgrace.
The Times of Israel reports that after they finished intimidating him and exposed him he won’t return home for fear of his life:
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed for about half an hour at the station shortly after 12 a.m. in his hometown of Cerritos, Calif., said Steve Whitmore, spokesman for the Los Angeles County sheriff’s department.
After that, deputies dropped Nakoula off at an undisclosed location.
“He is gone. We don’t know where he went,” Whitmore said. “He said he is not going back to his home.”
So much for free speech in America.
Obama won’t resign so we must kick him out off office in November. We must and it can’t be stated strong enough.
Valerie Plame Blasts Obama Administration for ‘Bullying’ Bin Laden Raid Autobiographer:
Criticism for the Obama administration came from a very unlikely source Friday.
Valerie Plame, the Bush-bashing ex-CIA operative at the heart of the Scooter Libby controversy, published a Huffington Post piece titled “Why Is the U.S. Government Bullying an American Hero?” in which she absolutely excoriated the White House for its treatment of the Osama bin Laden raid autobiographer.
A very interesting column. This article is COMPLETELY NEUTRAL. Charley Reese’s final column for the Orlando Sentinel. He was a journalist for 49 years. He has retired and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.
Be sure to read the Tax List at the end.
This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day.
It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

THESE TWO GUYS HAVE A LOT IN COMMON, BOTH HAD FAILING ECONOMIES, BOTH HAVE LITTLE USE FOR THE JEWISH STATE AND BOTH ARE WIMPS.
Blame the movie.
Blame the movie.
Even though “the movie” was on YouTube for months prior to the collective indignation of thousands of Middle Eastern Islamists all coming together on the eleventh anniversary of September 11th (through a wild coincidence, no doubt), we are being told by our government and our media overlords that we must blame the movie.
You see, if we blame the movie for the burning of our foreign outposts and the brutal murders of four Americans (including our Libyan ambassador who was reportedly raped), we won’t blame the burners and the looters and the murderers and the rapists.
You see, if we blame the movie for the Middle East burning, we won’t blame the Islamists who are doing the burning and looting and raping and murdering.
Which means we won’t further connect the dots and blame Obama’s failed Middle East policy; the Obama Doctrine of backing away from the region and allowing events to unfold as America stands idly by — as the Islamists in the Muslim Brotherhood grab hold of power in Egypt, a country that was once our largest and closest ally.
Blame the filmmaker.
And all at the direction of a president of the United States who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, you know, the same Constitution that treasures the right of free expression and speech above all else.
But no one asks … What about Bill Maher?
Bill Maher made a comedy/documentary called “Religulous” that’s most famous for mercilessly mocking Christianity. But what people forget is that the last twenty-minutes or so of the film make a damning case against Islam.
Bill Maher made a film that mocked Islam.
Oh, yes, he did.
I’m only saying this because, you know, the White House and the media told me movies inflame and cause terrorism.
Think about it: if the poorly produced and laughably bad trailer for “The Innocence of Muslims” results in chaos, murder, and the burning of foreign outposts all throughout the Middle East, how much rioting and mayhem is a big-budgeted, slickly produced, Oscar-bait blockbuster celebrating the death of the leader of al-Qaeda going to cause?
Moreover, an excuse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be able to use in the case of “Zero Dark Thirty” (as she did with “Innocence of Muslims”) is the cowardly and self-righteous claim that the federal government and the Obama White House had nothing to do with “Zero Dark Thirty.”
Because the federal government and the Obama White House had everything to do with “Zero Dark Thirty.”
