Biden Late-Life Crisis: Touts Electric
Corvettes While Firing Up Classic
Car Engine

Posted By: mc squared, 8/6/2020 10:06:36 AM

Presidential candidate Joe Biden (D) released a video on Wednesday featuring himself revving a hunter green Corvette Stingray — an American classic — while promising to move the country to electric vehicles. “I like to drive. I used to think I was a pretty good driver,” Biden said in the video showing the presidential hopeful revving up the engine with a mask on. “I didn’t get a chance to flat-shift into second. I was afraid I’d go through those guys,” he said, laughing. The video then showed Biden opening the hood of the car and reminiscing over his “incredible memories” associated with the vehicle.

Comments:

He's just a Regular Guy, Man.
Gotta' admit, if good quarter mile times are your thing, electric may be the way to go. For the rest of us who travel 300+ miles to see kids and other relatives - - not so much.
If it's from Biden's mouth, it's a lie anyway.

The Dim handlers were undoubtedly terrified he’d drive away and get lost. Happens a fair amount to people in his condition.

Idiot. A 65 Vette was pretty good in its day but even my 2028 (Texas built) Toyota Tundra pickup could squash it in the quarter mile. New muscle cars like Mustangs and Dodge Chargers would be across the line before Joe hit second gear. And the there's the fact that it steers like a pig compared to modern cars

Electric cars will be fine, once they can be powered by on-board windmills and solar panels! As long as we need fossil fuels to generate the electricity needed to charge the batteries it's a lost cause, as far as eliminating fossil fuel for vehicles. How much would infrastructure to support charging stations everywhere cost? What to do while the car is recharging for a couple hours? Visit the gift shop?

Flat shifting is a technique of destroying your transmission by cramming an up shift through unsynched hearings, while at the same time destroying your engine by full throttle of an unloaded engine. When the clutch is popped, the clutch plate is damaged. . And the joints may be damaged. Same thing can happen to a country on a down shift to an idling engine.

What a man. I mean He Man. Even Chuck Norris is afraid of Joe when Joe starts 'flat shifting' Corvettes. Man he is tough when you think about it. Living on a public servants salary his entire working life, that takes the kind of inner strength most of us just don't have. Take off your hats when Joe ambles by, there goes a hero my son. As #22 says, this parasite is the kind of stupid slob who never had to break a sweat to earn a dollar so destroying an expensive car by operating it like a child with a tantrum, means nothing to him. He can't comprehend how to do it correctly and he doesn't care. After all he just swung a deal with some Chinese communists for $2 billion. He can buy a bunch of vaporware Corvettes and destroy all of them if he wants to. BTW, the only reason anyone ever beat him in a race is because they cheated, and they knew how to race. It is a true measure of how absolutely evil and insane anyone has to be to not just vote for this creep, but to be happy to do it.

Once again, Plugs trying to sound macho and getting it wrong...…….as usual. The term is called "speed shifting" dumbass. It's a drag racing technique of not letting off the accelerator when upshifting a manual transmission to a higher gear. If you looked up the word "buffoon" in the dictionary, I swear there would be a picture of this guy.

The last couple of weeks have been frustrating for the sizable chunk of Trump’s base who think lockdowns, untargeted social distancing, and forcing everyone to wear masks are neither effective nor necessary responses to COVID-19 and, in fact, are a much greater menace than the virus itself. They believe we ought to finally start listening to the thousands of doctors and scientists that the drive-by media have gone out of their way to silence instead of blindly following the dictates of life-long bureaucrats who’ve been puffed up, pushed, and placed on a pedestal by professional purveyors of fake news like Jake Tapper and Chris Cuomo.

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. — Gun laws are once again a topic ahead of the elections, with Brevard County approving a resolution in hopes to change concealed weapons laws. The resolution aims to support the expansion of “lawful statewide open carry of firearms.” As District 2 Commissioner Bryan Lober explained, the outline of a gun is enough to alarm someone, so he wants guns out in the open. “If I’m carrying a concealed weapons, I don't want everyone under the sun to see the outline of a gun because, they may figure that the person is hiding something — a reason for concealing the gun,”

He was set free and allegedly went right back to shooting.A Brooklyn gang member, released without bail in May on an attempted-murder charge, participated in at least three drive-by shootings after he was freed, federal prosecutors allege. Darrius Sutton, 23, was initially arrested in connection with a May 16 shooting in the courtyard of an East New York building that left a man seriously injured. Despite the attempted-murder rap, Sutton was set free without bail the same day of his May 20 arrest. The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office said the lone witness in the case recanted.

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono got triggered after Republican Senator Ted Cruz pressed her to condemn Antifa violence. Not only did Hirono refuse to disavow the left-wing savagery, but she walked out of Cruz’s Antifa hearing in a huff. Hirono’s refusal to denounce the Antifa riots, looting, arson, and assaults is like the ostrich that buries its head in the sand, hoping this nullifies reality. Hirono walked out after a testy exchange with Cruz, who was chairing a Senate hearing on the role that Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists are playing in the alarming escalation of violence around the country. Cruz slammed Democrats for not condemning Antifa riots, during

The 90-year-old Hungarian-American and billionaire philanthropist told La Repubblica that Trump is a “confidence trickster” who unexpectedly won the 2016 U.S. election and was inadvertently working to “undermine democracy from within,” per a translation of the interview on George Soros’ website.

It is no secret but public knowledge that Kamala Harris slept her way up into California political life by being a very public escort and mattress for California Democrat Kingmaker Willie Brown. Willie Brown is 30 years older than Harris and was very married at the time. It was public. It was an embarrassment. With Joe Biden’s photo metaphorically the definition of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, voters will decide in November whether they want Harris to be their president some time in the next four years. Of almost equally significant concern is what Harris represents to hard-working women across the country who devote years to their careers

President Trump continues to be his own worst enemy: On Thursday, he stooped to calling presumptive vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris a “mad woman.” That doesn’t promote his agenda. It doesn’t help him with women. It doesn’t shore up his image as worthy of the nation’s highest office. It’s just, as Trump would say, mean and nasty. Sure, Harris isn’t the first target of Trump’s ad hominem attacks or over-the-top language. But making everything personal is unbecoming. It turns off voters who like his policies but dislike his rhetoric.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) broke with President Trump on Friday by saying there is no debate over whether Sen. Kamala Harris is a U.S. citizen, remarks that came after the president encouraged a conspiracy theory that the California Democrat may not be eligible to serve as vice president because her parents are immigrants. In a pair of tweets, Graham, a frequent defender of Trump, said he disagreed with Harris on “plenty of issues,” calling her “one of the most liberal members of the U.S. Senate.” But he said there should be no debate over her citizenship status.

The FBI was told Carter Page was a U.S. intelligence agency source months before the agency began keeping that information from the secret court that authorized spying on him and nearly a full year before the agency altered documents to claim otherwise. Federal charging documents against Kevin Clinesmith, the top FBI attorney who was expected to plead guilty today to altering documents, show that the FBI withheld in three separate spying applications the fact that Page had served as an “operational contact” who helped an agency believed to be the CIA investigate suspected Russian intelligence figures for five years. For the fourth application, the agency didn’t just hide that fact,

Posted by MissMolly 8/15/2020 4:31:10 AM Post Reply
To be clear, the request here isn’t to let Pennsylvania voters mail ballots after polls close. They need to be postmarked before then. The request is to have the court extend the deadline for when ballots need to be received in order to be counted, which by law is 8 p.m. on Election Day. Right now, the Postal Service recommends that ballots be mailed a full week before Election Day, i.e. October 27, in order to ensure that they’re received on time. But Pennsylvania law allows voters to *apply* for a ballot up until October 27. That means many voters won’t even have ballots
