Buttigieg Says the Solution to High Gas
Prices Is Simple: Just Buy an EV

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 3/7/2022 6:19:09 PM

When will we ever learn not to fret over what’s going on in the world? Our Democrat party overlords know what’s best for us, and all we have to do is simply follow their suggestions. After all, their solutions are so simple. Take high gas prices for example. So many of us peons worry about the skyrocketing price of gas at the pump, but America’s brilliant Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has a fix for gas prices that’s so easy it’s almost ridiculous. Why, you just need to buy an electric vehicle, you silly goose. “Clean transportation can bring significant cost savings for the American people as well,” Buttigieg said

Wuch simpletons! EV owners not paying their fair share of road taxes are yet another reason those gaping potty holes are swallowing our cars whole. Not to mention all the free electricity at some of our TN state parks. WHERE is my FREE gasoline?

Anyone here that's taken a look at electricity prices lately? They're high and going higher. These evil @ssholes who are pushing Green are painting themselves into a corner. I literally cannot wait for the midterm elections.

If you live in a gated community with a golf course, get yourself a Club Car or a Pargo golf cart with room for two full sized staff bags on the back. Put a charger in your garage to keep the cart ready for daily golf. Then go to it. Play your heart out. But if you have any plans that aren't very local, any electric car--not cart--is boutique transportation. The entire Green "energy" revolution (solar, wind, biofuel, etc.) needs to be ended now, rat now. It's of no use, except to impoverish Americans and make it impossible for them to travel any significant distances in private transportation. This administration is doing their level best to destroy America. Destroy them instead. Joyfully.

Where does he think the electricity comes from? It is generated from gas, oil or coal. Maybe solar panels from China. Where does he think old solar panels are disposed of? This guy knows nothing about everything.

They/We are NOT READY for the full scale conversion to EVs they want. Gov't going to GIVE me 40 K for my current vehicles so I can make a huge investment to purchase one of their wet dreams? (I'll be needing a large, forgivable loan for that too) And charging stations every other highway mile, plenty of fossil fuel to feed the chargers - good golly but these folks should NOT run anything more complicated than a coffee grinder.

There is a 1 in 3 likelihood that the "clean" electric energy for those electric vehicles comes by way of a miner digging black gold from the deep, dark domain, to be burned in an electric power plant. Liberals think that electric comes from an electric outlet--it is just that simple.

The push is coming for all to "sacrifice" their gas-guzzling autos for short-distance EVs. Need to travel a long distance? Mass transit, baby! The interstates will be reserved for the transport of goods, buses, and, of course, the luxury autos of the elite. No need for the EV infrastructure if you're not allowed to use those roads. Rush (the band) had an anthem for those of us who will miss the days of free-wheeling: "Red Barchetta". Soon to arrive: rolling brownouts and sky-high electricity prices for the fly-over country heathens. greyseal

Most Americans can’t afford to purchase a new electric motor vehicle if they were even available. Maybe he was talking about one of the new Chinese “high quality” $8,000.00 electric cars that China is planning to build and import to America.

Sure. My $10.00 to $15.00 per hour employees (many single mothers) will run out today and by a new Tesla, Rivian, or Lucid. Even if they purchased a Prius or other more reasonably priced new hybrid vehicle, they still couldn't afford one, couldn't find one, and most likely would not have a good enough credit score for financing. Even if they wanted a used Prius or similar vehicle, used hybrids/electrics are so expensive and used inventory is very low. Pete Buttigeig is living in a fantasy world.

Today I paid $109.00 to fill up my diesel SUV. This used to cost me about $40.00 in the fall of 2020. My business has a fleet of 15 passenger cargo vans getting 8 to 12 MPG each. It currently costs about $100.00 to fill them up. In the summer of 2020 it cost about $35.00 to fill them up. Does Mayor Pete suggest I replace my diesel SUV to haul four kids with a small electric car? Do I need to replace a paid off fleet of large cargo vans with an expensive fleet of electric cargo vans that I cannot afford? A more simple solution to the high gas prices would be to simply do what we were doing in the summer of 2020. Produce our own oil and gas and stop buying it from overseas!

This ignorant jerk would be a great nanny if he’s qualified. Electricity is produced from, wait for it, fossil fuels. Electric cars are a liberal fad, much like the ‘hybrids’. They are powered by lithium batteries. 90% of our lithium supply comes from China. When BS meets reality it can be really awkward for liberals.

Can anyone here recall seeing the graveyard of electric taxis in Paris? They went all electric taxis and when it came time to replace the batteries the cost for exponential and they just dumped them in the junkyard in a cost effective move and went back to hybrids or gas powered. The environmental impact of throwing those taxis and their batteries away is more toxic than decades of emissions. We are dealing with idiots.

Arguing the faults and environmental problems with EVs is pointless. The purpose of shutting down fossil fuel is to prevent travel, keep us in hell hole cities and keep us from moving away from the decay. And don't forget all the public transportation that's begging for brave riders.

And where, pray tell me, are you going to get an EV? How are you going to afford one? This from a guy with plenty of dough at his disposal. Most folks cannot afford a new car these days, let alone an EV. Also, have you seen car lots? Nearly empty. Buying a car when the ports are backed up and when inflation is high and when employers cannot find workers is NOT an easy thing to do. The Sec. of Transportation is an idiot. An out-of-touch idiot. I don't give a damn who he sleeps with. None of my business. That neither qualifies nor disqualifies him from the job. But being a bloody idiot SHOULD disqualify him.

I recently attended a conference in Charleston, SC. I drove from Cheyenne, WY for three days, roughly 1800 miles, attended my conference for four days and returned to Cheyenne. If I were to have done this in an EV how many days would it have taken? Maybe 400 miles before needing an overnight stay to recharge the battery. So five days for the drive each way. So my ten day trip becomes a 14 day trip, with at least four more nights in motels. No thank you.

While the Democratic Party has gone all-in endorsing critical race theory (CRT) being taught in school — and claiming opposition to it is racist — Robert “Beto” O’Rourke has opportunistically flip-flopped on the issue as he wages his futile campaign for governor of Texas. “I think you and I are probably both on the same page as well.

What is it about the former congressman, former losing candidate for Senator, and former presidential candidate who dropped out of the race before the first primary that excites Democrats? Sure, he’s handsome, in a rough-hewn sort of way. He speaks fairly well. And he’s got a nice, toothy smile. Remind you of anyone? If you guessed “John F. Kennedy,” you win a cookie. In their never-ending quest to find “the next JFK,” Democrats have tapped O’Rourke as the successor to the playboy Massachusetts senator who wowed Americans in the early 1960s. But that’s a tough act to follow. Where Kennedy was urbane, sophisticated, and witty, O’Rourke is an angry former folk singer

Remember when Kamala Harris tried to explain the Russia/Ukraine conflict in layman’s terms? “Ukraine is a country in Europe,” she said. “It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine, so basically, that’s wrong.” It was hard to wrap our heads around why she gave such an airheaded explanation. I speculated that Kamala, despite being the vice president, doesn’t have the slightest idea why Russia invaded Ukraine. Could I have been wrong? Perhaps; maybe she just assumed that her audience was a bunch of four-year-olds. But now the jig is up.

Mitt Romney has disgraced himself by reacting hysterically to a tweet by former Representative Tulsi Gabbard calling for a ceasefire in Ukraine around the US-funded biological laboratories where hazardous pathogens exist. Romney, to his eternal disgrace, accused her of “treasonous lies.” Treason itself is a death penalty crime, but perhaps in the Senator’s mind “treasonous lies” are a different offense. (snip) The existence of such labs in Ukraine was confirmed by Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland last week in congressional testimony (snip) The World Health Organization (WHO) last week warned of the hazards of the labs:

Democrat midterm campaign chief Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) over the weekend in Philadelphia said his party is the “problem” as to why they are having trouble relating to the voters. At the House Democrats’ retreat, Maloney, head of the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), said that as much as everyone says, “The problem is not the voters… The problem is us.” He made the statement during a part of the conference weekend that was supposed to be designed to forge unity, Washington Post reported. “They think that we’re divisive and too focused on cultural issues. They think that we’re preachy. They think that we act like we know better than parents

The shifting sands of Democrat gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke’s gun control plans have solidified, for now, into a pledge to buy back AR-15s and AK-47s from Texans if the state legislature will support doing it. O’Rourke spoke with Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith on Saturday and KVUE reported O’Rourke’s comments. Smith asked O’Rourke to clarify his position on confiscatory gun control. O’Rourke stressed his belief that citizens should not be able to buy a AR-15s, then said: “And if I can find the consensus within the Legislature to have a law in the state of Texas that allows us to buy those AK-47s and AR-15s back, we will.

These decisions will be addressed at an individual and department level, and are being undertaken in a manner that will not impact public safety or the continuity

It has been one of the most enduring Covid conspiracy theories: that the 'gold standard' PCR tests used to diagnose the virus were picking up people who weren't actually infected. Some even suggested the swabs, which have been carried out more than 200 million times in the UK alone, may mistake common colds and flu for corona.(Snip)Last month a report by the research charity Collateral Global and academics at Oxford University concluded as much, stating that as many as one third of all positive cases may not have been infectious. If they are right, that's a potentially staggering number – roughly six million cases.
