So what we supposed to do? The middle and lower class can't afford gas at $7/gallon much less an EV car! Is there anybody in this administration who has a brain?

    This fool is a sexually confused idiot who has the taxpayers pay for his transportation, so what does he care?

    With that said, IMHO, the entire man made climate change narrative is just a modern day pagan religion and should be booted out of the government at all levels because the government is "establishing this religion", which is CLEARLY unconstitutional!

      I agree. The real point is:
      If the people had acted to limit government power, we would have none of these problems.
      Without our acquiescence to unconstitutional government power, the worm food currently in control would have no power to affect any of us.
      Reversing/repealing everything done by the federal government in 1913 (and all the additions to the code that followed as a result) would be a good start. Repealing every law limiting gun ownership and sales that affects sane non-criminals would be a good 2nd step. Of course, the traitors have to be arrested, tried, found guilty, and executed before these things are possible.

        Actually, they still do not have the power. That would require a change in the Constitution. All we have to do is to say "No."

          Slight disagreement. The SCOTUS interprets a law in relation to the Constitution. So the SCOTUS indirectly interprets the Constitution as their philosophy mandates. The Constitution is nuanced from generation to generation thru interpretation. In reality, how many of the post Bill of Rights Amendments could have easily be fit into one of the initial ten? Congress passes the law, but if challenged, the SCOTUS interprets as it currently sees fit. One misinterpretation influences future references thus poisoning the original intent.

            And the entire power of 'interpretation' is not a power granted in the Constitution.
            It was 'interpreted' itself by the very people who derive their power from their own interpretation.
            The SCOTUS has been corrupt for more than 2 centuries.
            The power to declare laws unconstitutional has destroyed the balance of power between states
            and the federal government that was a vital and primary part of the design of the constitution.

            I think that is what the politicians want us to believe. The Constitution does not change by the Supreme Court's interpretation; they want us to think that it does. They are only supposed to say whether or not something is Constitutional -- not to interpret the Constitution.

              Yes and no..
              The constant (Constitution) is in fact unchanging. But when you have one set of Justices interpreting it (Constitution) allowing say, abortion rights, one way, then a different set of justices not allowing it, then what was considered unchangeable is now changeable.
              By the way, this is how the priests of Christianity in the first 2000 years post-Christ, instituted altruism as an expected given. Power over the "uneducated". They interpreted, the masses swallowed.

                Just tell them no. They do not have the power to change it without the Congress. Don't believe or abide by what they say.

                  Yeah, go ahead and tell them. As a matter fact, go ahead and tell all the members of Congress they are in fact traitors to the Constitution . Why you at it walk up to the state department. You will be a one-man insurrection. I will believe in your tenacity. You will be right, you will be true. But just saying no does not lead to change

                    You are so right. No one is listening to us. They just ignore everything we say. But, if we all say it together and ignore them, maybe they will catch on. Refuse the masks. Refuse the mandates. Keep saying no -- until they listen. I can see no other way. THEY won't do it.

        Before arrests all the $ laundering and their source of funding must be cut off , irrefutable evidence gathered and a fair and balance trial. The enemy is the eQuivelent of the Hydra.. the whole body must be destroyed all at the same time. Certainly a task that needs to be executed with special operations precision. ThanQ Chris Miller.

    Well if we're counting on this guy, he doesn''t even know what sex he is. He thinks he's a mommie and he doesn't and will never have the equipment.

    If one does the research on the embedded cost of EV’s batteries, charging stations, disposal etc, EV’s are the dirtiest environmental transport out there. Also the cost of generating the power to charge them relying on wind, solar etc . Not always reliable. EV’s not only have a higher carbon footprint, also cost more. Open our oil Biden. I didn’t refer to him as President because he doesn’t act like one.

    Our vice-president Kamala Hare-brained has stepped into it as well, blaming Putin for the rise in gas prices, and today (Mar. 8) her fearful leader is to make a speech about his next step. Word has it he will put an embargo on Russian oil, all the while crying that he doesn't want the American people to suffer. If that sentiment were ever remotely true, he would never have shut down our own production. He and the puppeteers who pull the strings have no care but for the power they hold. This will not stop until the big boys behind the scenes have their way. It reminds me vividly of Ayn's unhygienic raja dribbling grains of rice into diamonds. Remember where and how he got that rice...

        I will be happy to cite, but now, after biden's speech yesterday, citing is a moot point. I read a number of pieces from The Blaze, Newsmax, Epoch Times, PJ Media, The Western Journal, to name a very few. Some are more left, some are more right, but most have very individual takes on many subjects, and articles that cover subjects considered untouchable by msm.

          I've been listening to the radio in the car and the workshop all day yesterday and Biden's speech regarding Russian oil has been played or quoted all day. I've seen much as you have in writing and on the news this morning.

    Brandon and company is making a joke out of art and science. Case in point, Hunter’s crap selling for millions as bribes for the Bidens.
    Science is being destroyed by the global warming charade and Vaccine craziness.
    In the meantime work is being done to manipulate weather. Not to help things but rather to feed the narrative with more crisis.
    Trump saw a crisis as something that needed a solution but the Democrats openly use crisis as opportunity.

    The biggest problem is the Eco-Freaks are putting the cart before the horse. Trying to ram something into existence that there is insufficient infrastructure for.
    We need a Nuke Plant in every State before this BullShit has a prayer of actually being economically feasible.

    OMFG... EV will never bring cost savings.
    It will, however drive home electricity bills up.
    In FL, we have two rates. Below 750kwh at the "cheap rate", and a more expensive rate above that. This is to let our retirees be able to have lights, etc...

    Personally, I manage my electric bill pretty tightly, I can go over the 750, but I also work out of the house, and like the A/C... That said, I am confident I have some of the lowest bills on the block. [FPL refused to install an A/C shutoff for the extra savings monthly, because my monthly bill was too low... LOL]

    Anyways, Vehicles will be like everything else in the future. Too expensive to own.
    But those Johnny Cabs (Self Driving) will replace all of the Ubers. And when this happens, FLEET vehicles, like AVIS, will have cars that pick you up at the airport, and drop you off at the hotel.

    But when not rented, they can serve as self-driving Uber type vehicles.
    Of course, this just destroys another low-level (entry-level) profession...

    The upside... It will destroy Auto Insurance Companies (who needs them if the AI has to be insured). Then, because of the lack of fender benders from car to car communication. The body shops will go away (also completing our progression to a use and refuse society that never fixes anything).

    Once Auto Insurance goes away, I fear home owners insurance will no longer be affordable.
    No worries, because homes wont be too affordable.

    Hmmm... I think I will re-watch that movie In Time... (Justin Timberlake and House's #13)...
