One particular statement caught my attention. One missed shipment can put a small company out of business. Indeed, we are living Atlas Shrugged.

    This is insanity. EVs are best used for short distance driving. They are terrible for long distance due to the limited range and long recharge times.

    Then think about Trucks. Very heavy - bad for range. Long distances - Recharge times are going to cut that WAY down. It takes 45 minutes to recharge a Tesla to 80%. Can you imagine what it will take to charge an 18-wheeler to go even the next 100 miles? The battery weight will also have to be subtracted from the freight capacity.

    Now a hybrid diesel-electric, I might believe (similar to a rail locomotive) but still you have the weight issue.

    OUC is correct.
    The obvious solution is to ignore everything the irrational feds tell you and do what is rational.
    NO MORE "JUST FOLLOWING ORDERS."
    STOP DOING WHAT THE TYRANTS IN DC ORDER.
    THEY ARE TRAITORS AND DESERVE TO BE EXECUTED.
    The time for talking is past. It's time for action.
    NIFO.

    They will have to disobey for as long as they can or we could load them all up with these regulators and leftist...deducting the cost from their own accounts.

    A business case opens up-

    A truck, nominally powered by a battery, actually diesel, travels out to stranded vehicles with flat batteries. It has sufficient diesel power to charge them up as fast as the battery type allows. Handles both 12v and 24v (and etc?)
    It could even carry a range of small motors to sell/rent and leave behind on a trailer to put in a charge, the stranded vehicle is then almost a hybrid.

    As if this attack isn't enough, the bidem cult has added a new wrinkle to housing. Starting in May, people with good credit will now have to pay higher fees through government sponsored mortgage lenders. The fees will go to help those with bad credit scores to buy a house. To each according to his needs...

    It astounds me that sheeple in this country are so blinded by bullpucky that the obvious is consigned to oblivion. . There is no way to wake the woke. I agree with ouc as well. Live your life and to hell with them.

      My pleasure, Dobrien. I surely would like to have a gathering some day in some part of the flyover country just to meet everyone possible. This site gives me more useful information than all of my other spots combined.

        Mount Rushmore is a fitting location.

          And lots of camping and hotels close by. We stayed for a week in an rv park that sat high above the badlands, so high that an eagle literally soared on the air currents below our site. Beautiful state.:)
