When President Joe Biden declared that he wants all cars sold to be “zero-emission” by 2035, carmakers didn’t raise a peep of protest. Worse, they are starting to fall in line with promises to go all-electric, even though the vast majority of consumers don’t want these cars. General Motors made a big splash earlier this year when it promised to sell only electric cars by 2035. “General Motors is joining governments and companies around the globe working to establish a safer, greener and better world,” CEO Mary Barra said days after Biden was sworn in. “We encourage others to follow

And just where will these electric vehicles get their electricity? The Sun? Hydropower? Can’t wait to see the limousines waiting in line to plug in during road trips. When will they start making all-electric jets? Don’t aircraft use more fuel than cars? Maybe we need to start shaming the “better class” to drive and fly electric vehicles.

Electric cars will never make it. The electrical grid in our country is way under powered to provide the needed electricity if electric vehicles replace fossil fuel vehicles.

Democrats believe if they say it, then it can be done. I cannot believe a group of people can be so totally clueless. They cannot or will not look down the road to the unintended consequences that are coming as a result of these electric cars. Are they so dim that they don’t know that power must come from a source and without gas and oil, there is no viable source to sustain all these electric cars? This is another insane boondoggle brought to you by the party of identity politics who cannot admit the scientific concept of male and female. Who in their right mind has any faith in what they say? When science is based upon feelings, you know they cannot be trusted.

I'm really disappointed in Ford going all in on electric vehicles. The customer base doesn't want this. After Ford stood tall and didn't take any federal money in the 2008-09 disaster, this is a bad move on their part.

So, when will John Deere and other farm equipment manufacturers come out with electric powered combines, tractors, harvesters, tricks-axle trucks, etc.? When can we expect Freightliner to come out with their electric powered 18-wheeler rigs? When is Caterpiller coming out with electric powered bulldozers. and Manitowac with electric cranes? When can we expect to fly on a electric powered commercial airliner or cruise on an electric powered ships? The answer to all these is NEVER! The internal combustion engine will never be replaced by electric because the energy (horsepower) output cannot be matched, and the charging stations, and electrical generation and transmission systems will never provide the needed capacity. Me? I'll stick with my 5.7L 420 Hp, V8 Hemi until the wheels fall off.

The automakers don't care. By 2035 they will be selling cars to those young, green children of today, not to most of us posting. Nonetheless, if you want an alternative-powered car, they're available. Or, go buy a conventional-powered vehicle and put it under a tarp in your garage or barn.

#8-- so on target! "Democrats believe if they say it, then it can be done." So many considerations have to be taken into account as previous posters said-- where will the electric power come from? What about persons involved in agriculture, and how will produce be shipped? How will it be possible to travel any kind of distance when people need to travel distances? How do we MAKE people live in the cities on top of each other? Not ready for prime time. Not practical. The technology to make it work won't be there for a long time.

1 - The infrastructure in this country will not sustain a large movement to EV. 2 - The average EV requires 35-41 minute to get to 80% charge. Most charge stations will not fast charge to full capacity because of overheating the battery pack. The last 20% is a slow trickle charge that doesn't overheat. 3 - Most EVs that claim 300 mile range are actually more in the 290 mile range. At 80% recharge you're down to about 250-260 miles provided you use the heater/AC/entertainment systems sparingly. 4 - In Europe that have a standard for the charging port where in the USA we have three different ports. And not all charging stations have all three. You need adapters no matter which vehicle you have. Most people can't keep track of their personal items like phones or eye glasses, how can you expect them to keep track of the adapters. 5 - You can always find a refueling station open 24 hours a day. Ev stations usually shut down at 9:00 PM. I could go on but let me say these issues aren't going away any time soon, and if they were to suddenly find the "magic" that it will take to solve them the price of the cars will be so high people won't buy them even if they increased the subsidies to 50%. Meanwhile, I'll keep my two door sport coupe that gets 425 mile on a tank if gasoline and cruise on down the road with my windows down and the music turned up.

Not mentioned anywhere are the mid-life battery replacements that all of these vehicles are going to require at some point. Figure on about half the cost of a new vehicle to re-power them. Compare that to your average Chevy pick-up or Nissan that's still fully functional at 200-300+ thousand miles with a new fuel pump and transmission required. And how amusing that the pioneer of electric vehicles, so beloved by the left, is suddenly despised because he makes too much money - another sign that they'll be happy only when the government gets into the manufacturing business. As someone pointed out this week, the more Saturday Night Live cast members that opt out of appearing during Elon's upcoming episode, the funnier the show will be.

They are already working on it. These companies are getting as bad as automobile companies with their worshiping electronics and computer technology. They are also supporting EPA rules and the "environmental" agenda. If they can get tractors we have now outlawed, they expect their customers to be forced to replace all their current equipment.

Military officials are trained to stand silently on the sidelines of politics, saying nothing but what relates to their mission, whatever it might be. But a recent open letter signed by 124 former flag-level officers warning of the dangerous effects of our nation’s sharp sudden turn to the left overturns that tradition. What do they know that the rest of us don’t? The letter was not couched in military jargon or bureaucratese; it was plain-spoken and blunt in its concern about America’s course.

Our country, once a bulwark of the strong and daring, is becoming a land of the fainthearted. Minutes after The Hill tweeted Friday that Trader Joe’s was no longer demanding that its customers self-suffocate, at least those who’ve been fully vaccinated, the scolds and skittish school marms took their shots before running to hide under their beds. “Not good,” said one, without explaining why it’s not good.

Among the young, hip, Woke crowd, faux-nostalgia for the fabulous 1970s is all the rage these days. Well, if it’s the ’70s they want, it’s the ’70s they’ll get. And good and hard, as the saying goes. Seen inflation lately? April consumer price inflation surged 4.2% over the last 12 months, four times higher than expected. Core inflation, which strips out volatile prices for food and energy, posted its biggest monthly increase since 1981, for a gain of 3% over the last year and the biggest annual increase since 1996.

Joe Biden was the first senator to endorse Jimmy Carter for president. Now Biden appears bent on recreating Carter’s disastrous presidency. The parallels are striking. What characterized Carter’s one-term presidency? Disasters at home and abroad. At home, the country suffered a self-inflicted energy crisis, with gas shortages and long lines. Inflation surged even as unemployment climbed, making the “Misery Index” a household term. Abroad, America’s adversaries sensed Carter’s weakness as Commander in Chief and the world was thrown in chaos – from the Iranian Revolution to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Carter’s response to these disasters was to tell people to

He not only insulted the people of those states, he was wrong. So where’s his apology? On March 2, Texas Gov. Greg Abbot and Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, both Republicans, not only lifted their states’ mask rules, they also killed business capacity limits.

You’re about to get hit with a huge tax. No it’s not to pay for the new infrastructure bill or the Green New Deal, which will cost trillions of dollars in new taxes, though they do play a role. Nor does it come from paying for the trillions of COVID-19 “stimulus” packages that Congress has passed, even as the economy roared out of its recession late last year. No, this tax is far more insidious than all that. It’s inflation. A tax that costs everyone dearly, rich and poor alike. Americans have gotten used to having little or no inflation.

These Republicans didn’t just express disdain for Trump, they sang Biden’s praises, calling him a uniter, a reasonable centrist, an honest man, someone who’d reach across the aisle “to get things done.” Now, after Biden’s first 100 days in office, we can see how well those promises have held up.

Frankly, they’re both. Making a distinction is virtually impossible. When we hear Biden try to force his view of patriotism on the country, we think of Woody Allen’s “Bananas,”

IDF spokesman Lt. Col.

For decades engineers have used petroleum to make everyday products. It's still commonly used in everything from rubbers and plastics to chemicals and asphalt. But this useful product comes from crude oil, which is often criticized by activists and experts as harmful to the environment, citing oil spills and fracking incidents. Recent studies from the last decade have shown that petroleum isn't as efficient as some once thought. Now, companies, engineers and scientists aim to replace it with plant-based oils, specifically soybeans. The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. recently announced its goal to replace all petroleum-based products with soybean oil by 2040.
