Of course just being a Republican will alienate many groups. Republicans have to change their platform so as to not alienate so many people. The immigration issue is one, the abortion issue is another. They are basically positions that have little point, except to make some special interests that consist of one-dimensional voters happy. Women are 50% of the population, and the Hispanic population has been growing quickly. They cannot be ignored and win. This is no longer 1960.
This Wiki quote got me chuckling. British humour from the '60s and '70s was great.
Reverend Farthing: Could I stand by and watch my wife being raped by a Nazi? Finally I said to myself, no I couldn't. Mainwaring: But you're not married. Reverend Farthing: I have a very vivid imagination.

Time to panic? No.
Time to give up? Yes. Shutting down.
I just had a long chat with my employees of eight years and past along the new. We are closing shop. While we've had our moments, the last several years have been a steady downward spiral. Between the massive tax burden we're under and trying to compete with low-cost (low-quality) sweat shops over seas (just west of China btw...) there used to be only one remaining incentive for success - to send my kids to college in comfort.
Now - with Obamacare looming and a line that goes 'round the block of 'citizens' with their hands out pleading with the Gov't, "Please give me even more because you all owe me" and a seemingly endless list of "Programs" designed to sponsor the super-lazy - I see no reason to continue trying to succeed.
Thank you Codeproject for giving my crew countless sources of inspiration. I wish you all the very best of luck and success wherever you are able to find it.

From the Oct 31st Ryno CEO's blog post:
We are continuing on a path with the limited funds we have to have early samples of the RYNO UEV (Unidentified Electric Vehicle) shipping by late April 2013 just in time for summer. Full production will be ramping up later in 2013.
The new UEV will be designed to look more like the original bike in all our videos. The red show bike on the web site was designed to be a street legal version but since then we have moved back onto the sidewalk and bike paths we need a lighter weight and more crowd friendly look. Plus it allows us to pack 4 HP of brute power into the wheel since we don’t have to meet the limitations to get on the street as a scooter or eBike.
We have doubled the battery capacity to 24 amp hours and will double it again later in 2013 as we get our cutting edge battery supplier on-line. The bike will have twin pull out batteries to allow them to be changed in thirty seconds and carried easily. Top speed is limited to 12.5 MPH, range may be about 25 miles. Trust me with 2,000 watts of motor power, this thing will climb a wall. We’re also still holding to a target retail price of $4,500.
I can be opened up to 25mph. Gee, that is opened up? The 50cc class legally go 35mph (depends on the state as to if it needs to be licensed, and need a m/c license). Of course I had a Derbi 50cc that I was able to get 70mph in colorado. Unfortunately on back roads that went up and down could only get up to 45 mph. A little slow for the traffic, unfortunatley.
Top speed 12.5 MPH - so you can't get out of the way of that routemaster bus...
Range ~25 miles - so you can't get to and from work without a recharge (assuming you have time to get there and back at 12.5 mph in the first place)
$4500 A push bike is cheaper, quicker, recharges on bacon butties and you probably look a lot less stupid riding one...
