Per mile traveled, our British friends are now paying more to charge their electric cars than to gas them up. Do stories come any more feel-good than this? No, no, they do not:


Tell me who didn't see this coming. We are ruled by idiots.

They are trying to force us into electric cars so they can control our usage by conducting blackouts and using smart meters on people's homes.

But most of those who could afford a more-expensive EV probably don't care.

Some day, in the near future, we will look back and say " did we get here..."? In the USA we have more gas and oil than the Saudi's, we had the best gas prices in years, and then we let the climate crazies take over through a stolen election that is doing undo-able harm to our economy. The thing about Ron DeSantis here in Florida is his common sense approach and ability to express it. Be it DeSantis or Trump in 2024, we need to change course quickly.

Here in rural Az I only know one person with an EV. He drive an old prius. He also is a pompous self-righteous jackass. It goes along with his $55,000 solar panel installation on his house. He loves to brag he doesnt pay any electric bill, but the installation cost of his solar panels never comes up in the conversation. I do love to see him up there on his roof hosing off the Az. dust from his panels every two weeks.

Sorry, but this is not a winning argument as most people will pay a bit more if they think there is a benefit to the environment. It's been proven again and again. A Toyota Prius is a prime example, as it's roughly $10,000 more than the Corolla it's built on, which already gets great MPG. People felt it was worth it and they felt good about helping to save the planet. The issue with electric is they will have a better means of controlling who has access to the roads in the future. They can turn off your electricity if they choose, and since the government will essentially own the transmission lines, they could control who can charge their vehicle. Autonomous vehicles will be even worse since the government will own the roads, and make you pay to have access to them.

But of course! When any commodity is in demand, the price will rise. Imagine what electricity rates will be when ALL cars need it to operate. Soon, electric generation will be in short supply. It takes much energy to generate energy. Oil was plentiful but can't be used. An unprovable future bug-a-boo has us all skeered. Too bad we aren't angry instead.

Car manufacturers are moving away from EV as massive amounts of electric vehicles sit on lots waiting for customers. Many high end EVs have to be ordered before the manufacture even builds it. I believe you'll see less and less 'electric' cars in the next few years as more horror stories of fires, all might charge and the limit range makes the consumers say NO!

And all of this nonsense is predicated on the non-existent causative correlation of CO2 emissions to AGW. Until the computer climate simulator models can history-match the last dozen ice ages, they aren't worth the harddrives they're written on, and they certainly are not able to predict climate change.

Add to prior posting: Hint: the world has been warming for the last 20,000 years (since the end of the last ice age), so any observed effects in modern times (melting glaciers, thawing tundra, etc) are simply continuations of that same natural warming trend...probably caused by Milankovitch cycles, just like the last two dozen ice ages. So will someone, anyone, please tell me why electric cars will accomplish anything truly beneficial? (except for enriching Elon Musk?)

A former top FBI official in New York has been arrested over his ties to a Russian oligarch, law enforcement sources told ABC News Monday. Charles McGonigal, who was the special agent in charge of counterintelligence in the FBI's New York Field Office, is under arrest over his ties to Oleg Deripaska, a Russian billionaire who has been sanctioned by the United States and criminally charged last year with violating those sanctions. McGonigal retired from the FBI in 2018. He was arrested Saturday afternoon after he arrived at JFK Airport following travel in Sri Lanka, the sources said.CORRECTIONS*

I’m sure that if many people were being honest with themselves, they’d rather find themselves at the business end of a loaded gun than be subjected to a line of questions by Republican Ohio Rep.

The current “media”—loosely defined as the old major newspapers like the New York Times and Washington Post, the network news channels, MSNBC and CNN, PBS and NPR, the online news aggregators like Google, Apple, and Yahoo, and the social media giants like the old Twitter and Facebook—are corrupt. They have adopted in their news coverage a utilitarian view that noble progressive ends justify almost any unethical means to obtain them. The media is unapologetically fused with the Democratic Party, the bicoastal liberal elite, and the progressive agenda.

The largest lockdown uprising in China took place at facilities run by Apple’s Foxconn supplier where workers had previously jumped to their deaths. After thousands fled the Apple gulag, making their way through the woods and rural areas to freedom, other employees battled with Communist authorities over abusive conditions and treatment in the iGulag. Apple had nothing to say about the rights of those workers who thought differently enough to break free and fight back. If they were foolish enough to have iPhones, there’s little doubt the company would have eagerly helped authorities track them down to be imprisoned or killed.

Liberal media outlets like the New York Times and MSNBC claimed former President Donald Trump ordered audits of former FBI chiefs James Comey and Andrew McCabe for political payback. According to the Internal Revenue Service’s internal watchdog, that’s not true. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration determined that the IRS randomly selected Comey and McCabe for audits of their tax returns from 2017 and 2019 as part of a program the IRS uses to refine its technology, according to a report released Thursday. The watchdog found no evidence of malfeasance on the part of Trump or any Trump-appointed officials.

Some observers found Pence’s words surprising, but this is not a new trajectory for the Indiana Republican, an outspoken Christian.

The ultra-strong opioid being cut with virtually every street drug in the country killed a record 75,000 Americans in 2021, the equivalent of 1,500 lives lost every week.  Fentanyl - which is 100 times more potent than morphine - started off as a cheap and potent alternative to heroin and was used by only the most hardcore drug addicts in the US, who mainly injected it or smoked it through a pipe. But its cheap manufacturing costs and potency have made it the go-to cutting agent

So naturally, the fastest-growing religion today — earth and climate worship — is developing its own faith-based dietary restrictions. “Climatarians” (also called “reducitarians” or “climavores”) are people who make their food choices based on how what they eat will impact the earth, with the aim of reducing their carbon “foodprint.” The Earthist version of original sin is that, simply by living, people commit climate sin every time they eat, breathe, travel, and heat or cool their homes. Naturally, the younger generations are the most pious Earthists,

The release of the videos from the lethal arrest of Tyre Nichols, 29, is shocking for its lack of professional tactics and procedures. This looks like adrenaline-filled rage … from the officers. At certain points, it is the suspect who sounds to be trying to de-escalate the situation. It is unfortunately not unique. In physical encounters, officers can escalate violence and lose control with lethal consequences. The footage helps establish a number of legal points. The force is clearly and undeniably excessive. It was a complete breakdown of training and supervision. It is hard to look at this tape objectively and analytically given the emotional impact of the scene. Yet

We reported on the video released in the beating death of Tyre Nichols, and the video was not good. The police officers involved, who were all black, were fired and charged with second-degree murder in his death. So, one would think that “justice” was being pursued. Nichols’ family reportedly called for peace, saying they didn’t want any disturbance and were satisfied with how the case had been proceeding so far. But some in New York weren’t listening. There was a march with folks carrying the signs of the Party of Socialism and Liberation. People from the unaffiliated BLM group in New York, and their leader Hawk Newsome, were also marching.
