PSA-210302-Green New Deal Cars

 

Over the past twelve years I have posted my thoughts about electric cars. None of it has been positive. Lately, I have been buying the cool aid being delivered by Elon Musk and the Green New Deal faction. This article came to me today, and renewed my negativity towards converting to electric vehicles. Perhaps I am wrong to do so, but there is a deeper problem residing within the electric movement which I have continually brought up to no avail. This brilliant article unveils the problem and should be taught in Kindergartens across the world.

 Interesting in what the engineers or others with knowledge and/or experience in this field have to say about this man’s comments. I did not write this, it was sent by a friend. 

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

  As an engineer I love the electric vehicle technology. However, I have been troubled for a long time by the fact that the electrical energy to keep the batteries charged has to come from the grid and that means more power generation and a huge increase in the distribution infrastructure, whether generated from coal, gas, oil, wind or sun, installed generation capacity is limited. 

In case you were thinking of buying hybrid or an electric car:
Ever since the advent of electric cars, the REAL cost per mile of
those things has never been discussed. All you ever heard was the mpg in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it. This is the first article I’ve ever seen and tells the story pretty much as I expected it to.

Electricity has to be one of the least efficient ways to power things
yet they’re being shoved down our throats. Glad somebody finally put engineering and math to paper.

At a neighborhood BBQ I was talking to a neighbor, a BC Hydro Executive. I asked him how that renewable thing was doing. He laughed, then got serious.


If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, he pointed out, you
had to face certain realities. For example, a home charging system for a Tesla requires a 75-amp service. The average house is equipped with a 100-amp service. On our small street (approximately 25 homes), The electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.

This is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles. Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So as our genius elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things and replace our reliable, cheap generating systems with expensive, new windmills and solar cells, but we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This latter “investment” will not be revealed until we’re so far down this dead-end road that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS..!’ and a shrug.

If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. 

Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening. 

Eric test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors and he writes, “For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine. “Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles

It will take you 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip, your average speed (including charging Time) would be 20 mph. According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity.

I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 Mpg = $0.10 per mile.

The gasoline powered car costs about $25,000 while the Volt costs
$46,000 plus. Simply put, pay twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country. 

  My Take:   😷

It’s always “Free Beer Tomorrow” – never “Today”

My Idea Of A Green New Deal

The world will be hard pressed to give up oil for one reason alone. Where will we get plastic for all the things we use? Plastic has become a mainstay of our lives. It is in everything. Plastic is made from oil. So when we stop drilling for oil and using oil, where will we get material for plastic bottles, dishes cutlery? There are so many things made from plastic that waste disposal is a major problem. Communities are dumping their waste in the oceans with the result being that the oceans are polluted. We need better answers for how to address plastic disposal. The video below is one answer to using wasted plastic. It brings the material into another dimension of usage, a new life. The new life will be more lasting than the first life of the original product that the plastic was used for. The second life will last for decades while the first life may have only lasted for minutes, weeks, or months. Watch and tell me this isn’t a good idea for recycling?

Fair Play? Why Not?

I have deliberately refrained from posting stuff about President Trump’s impeachment because I don’t like it when my blood pressure rises. This morning I received this article which I recommend every American read. In this article author Daniel Greenfield makes a poignant case for impeaching President Obama. I thought Obama should have been impeached on at least a dozen different occasions but our elected leaders were too busy kissing his ass and were too afraid of a black backlash to do so. The article is long as are all of Greenfield’s posts, but he makes a lot of sense.

Impeach Obama for Inciting Black Lives Matter Riots

Posted: 26 Jan 2021 10:27 AM PSTOn May 31st, a violent Black Lives Matter mob burned American flags, threw bottles at police officers, and started a fire in the historic ‘Church of Presidents’ which had been visited by almost every president. Another building was set on fire, and windows across the area were smashed by the rampaging BLM mob wielding baseball bats, bricks, and even more lethal weapons.

Helicopter footage showed the Washington Monument wreathed in smoke from the fires set by the massive BLM assault on the center of our government. But while the BLMers assaulted numerous buildings, including the Department of Veterans Affairs, and had vandalized historical landmarks, including the Lincoln Memorial, the real target of the radicals was the White House.

60 members of the Secret Service and 150 law enforcement officers in total were eventually injured. As the BLM mob assailed the White House, the Secret Service took President Trump and his family to a bunker: an eventuality meant to deal with terrorist or nuclear attacks.

Black Lives Matter mobs didn’t break through to the White House, but they managed to set the White House guardhouse on fire. Instead of condemning this extremist assault on our nation, Democrats supported the rioters and falsely claimed that law enforcement had assaulted “peaceful protesters” for a “photo op”, and demanded the removal of the National Guard.

Democrats and their media allies sneered at President Trump for retreating to a bunker.

Barack Obama, as the first black man to sit in the White House, a D.C. resident, and the politician who had done the most to bolster the racist and radical BLM movement burning American cities, had the opportunity to put out the fires. Instead he poured on more gasoline.

After the White House attack, Obama delivered a speech at his own foundation’s event which made no mention of the assault on the house he had formerly occupied or the threat of violence to his successor. Obama then spoke to Brittany Packnett Cunningham, described as, “one of the most prominent activists behind the Black Lives Matter movement” whom he had appointed to serve on his Task Force on 21st Century Policing after the Ferguson riots.

Obama began his speech by once again accusing America of racism, which he described as an “original sin”, and praised the mobs terrorizing the country. Instead of condemning the violent attack on the White House, he falsely claimed that the violence was the work of a “tiny minority”.

Then, putting the lie to his false claim, he chatted with Brittany Packnett Cunningham who had previously urged attendees to repeat a chant by domestic terrorist Assata Shakur still wanted by the FBI for her role in the murder of a police officer. Shakur is the icon of BLM and while Democrats accuse Republicans of being domestic terrorists, the movement they embraced is built around one of the FBI’s top ten most wanted terrorists from a violent racist hate group.

The month before, she had tweeted Martin Luther King’s quote about a riot being the “language of the unheard” while appending her own text, “Property damage at protests, 101”.

Not only wasn’t the violence coming from a tiny minority, but Obama’s own event was complicit.

Obama’s speech described the turmoil as “profound as anything that I’ve seen in my lifetime”, and urged that, “at some point, protests start to dwindle in size. And it’s very important for us to take the momentum that has been created… and say, let’s use this to finally have an impact.”

Every American man and woman who had been assaulted, robbed, and threatened by Obama’s mobs felt the impact. The police officers in the hospital, the shopkeepers sifting through the rubble, and the dead in the BLM riots felt the impact. Obama could have stopped the violence, instead his political support for the violent racist BLM terrorists helped keep the riots going.

While in the White House, Obama had helped incite the racist BLM movement.

When the Ferguson riots broke out after Michael Brown robbed a convenience store and assaulted a police officer, Obama and his administration incited violence by spreading false claims without evidence that Brown had been an innocent victim of police racism.

The DOJ attempted to suppress the surveillance video showing Brown’s attack on a minority store clerk, and Democrats refused to stop spreading false claims that he had been murdered.

Recently, Senator Kamala Harris doubled down on the lie, inciting violence by falsely claiming that “Michael Brown’s murder forever changed Ferguson and America.”

Obama claimed that “the anger and the emotion that followed his death awakened our nation”.

The BLM racial terrorist movement, backed monetarily by left-wing foundations and corporations, timed its riots to coincidence with election years. These were not mere race riots: they were and are election riots that exploit the shooting of a criminal to help the Democrats.

The biggest years of BLM and proto-BLM riots in 2014, 2016, and 2020 were election years.

When Obama and the Democrats fed the racial supremacist agenda of BLM, they were engaging in a campaign of political terror to turn out votes and tilt elections in their favor.

In 2016, the BLM riots surged again.

On July 7, 2016, Obama delivered a speech from the Marriott in Warsaw falsely accusing the police of racism against black people. That same day, Micah X. Johnson, who had attended BLM rallies, set out to murder as many white Dallas police officers as he could. He killed 5.

Obama spoke at the funeral of the police officers in defense of the racist hate group that killed them, andcontinued to incite violence by falsely accusing police officers of “the killing of Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge and Philando Castile of Minnesota” at a funeral for police officers.

Sterling had raped a 14-year-old girl and was shot by police officers after reaching for a gun.

“Even those who dislike the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter,’ surely we should be able to hear the pain of Alton Sterling’s family,” Obama had urged.

Earlier that year, Obama had invited BLM organizers, including Brittany Packnett Cunningham and DeRay Mckesson, as well as Al Sharpton, to the White House. Mckesson had been sued that year by a Baton Rouge police officer who suffered brain trauma and lost teeth after being assaulted by a McKesson organized mob at a BLM protest for child rapist Alton Sterling.

Obama had invited a man accused of having “incited the violence” that crippled a police officer.

The Supreme Court case of Mckesson v. Doe, in which the racist movement was represented by Covington & Burling attorneys, was tossed by the Supreme Court with Justice Thomas, the court’s only black justice dissenting, but it’s already playing a role in the attempt to impeach President Trump over false allegations that he had somehow incited the Capitol riot.

The Democrats would like to continue impeaching President Trump even after he leaves office.

But if a president can be impeached even after he leaves office for supporting protests that turn violent, then Obama’s impeachment should be next. Obama’s long history of supporting Black Lives Matter is a matter of public record. Obama’s defenders will argue that he urged peaceful protests. So did President Trump. It hasn’t stopped Obama’s cronies from impeaching Trump.

The Democrat case against President Trump hinges on using the word, “fight” in his speech.

At Obama’s BLM event at the White House, Brittany Packnett Cunningham had urged, “we have to take the fight everywhere.”

On the campaign trail for Biden in Philadelphia Obama had ranted, “We can’t abandon those protesters who inspired us. We’ve got to channel their activism into action, we can’t just imagine a better future. We’ve got to fight for it.”

A week later, massive riots broke out in Philly that brought out the Pennsylvania National Guard. A curfew was imposed across multiple districts as mobs of thousands rampaged through the streets. Thirty police officers were injured: including a female officer who was hit by a car.

That’s how the “protesters” were fighting for that better future.

The case for impeaching Barack Obama is simple enough. He backed a violent racist hate group. He delivered multiple speeches in support of its extremist cause while falsely claiming that America was racist and that the racist protests were justified. After he used the word “fight” in a speech, devastating riots followed that brought a great American city to its knees.

That’s the same case that the Democrats have made for impeaching President Trump.

If it’s good enough to impeach President Trump, it’s good enough to impeach Obama.

Obama abused his office to support a racist hate group. He invited members of the racist hate group to the White House. Including those accused of inciting violence. He used his office to undermine law enforcement efforts to stop the extremist violence. And the end result has been thousands of injuries, numerous deaths, and billions of dollars in damages across America.

Impeaching Obama won’t fix all of that. But it will offer justice to some of BLM’s victims.

Political Ping Pong

When Trump was first elected I was happy that he took immediate action to eliminate some of the disastrous Obama executive orders. This week I was not so happy to see Biden doing the same thing as Trump, but in reverse. What really got me wondering though was who prepared all of those executive order portfolio’s that Biden signed? Surely, they were not done in the hour or so of his presidency. They had to be done ahead of time. If so, who did them? Were they part of the Trump White House staff, or were they in the underground Shadow Government? Either way, I’m sure they broke a few laws in preparing all those orders in advance for Biden’s signature. Maybe Obama did it himself. He would know the most about which one of his decrees were most valuable to his cause. Having spent eight years in the White House he would also know how to get these things done.

So the game has begun, and I am feverishly awaiting the news about how Biden will handle COVID-19 after promising that he would do a better job than Trump did. So far, with less than a week into it, he hasn’t shown me that his miracle will happen.

With all the double talk about unification of the parties and all, I suppose it will begin after they impeach a US citizen for having had the bad sense of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Had he been in the right place on January sixth, like on the golf course, he wouldn’t be in the pickle he is in now. At least Obama did spend an inordinate amount of time on the golf course and avoided two things: 1, By playing bad golf he avoided work thus he avoided getting into trouble, 2. The press was so enamored with his game that they forgot to challenge him on his dumb moves, like building cages to hold little kids who wandered across the border.

I can hardly wait to see how Biden will handle China. No doubt China will challenge him on several fronts just to see what they can get away with. Like giving Iran a nuke, or sneaking another man-made island into the China Sea to plant missiles in our direction, or buddying up with Venezuela and Cuba just to get into our half of the planet. Maybe they’ll release COVID-21 to sink us into oblivion. Who knows what the evil mind can dream up when it is on a roll, and unchallenged by anyone?

In the meantime, I recommend that Biden stay away from playing ping pong with the Chinese as they are very proficient at the game.

The Sequel to 1776

Six years ago I began writing a book in the alternate history genre. The theme is based on patriots losing the Revolution in 1776 and not gaining independence from Britain. I stopped at 80,000 words because I didn’t know how to end the story. One way would have left me open to continue writing several more books on the story. Another way was to end it abruptly thus dashing the dreams and aspirations of all the characters in the story. This last week’s attempt by we the people to make ourselves heard by the Congress have signaled how the latter ending would turn out.

WASHINGTON, DC – JANUARY 06: Pro-Trump supporters storm the U.S. Capitol following a rally with President Donald Trump on January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC.

(Photo by Samuel Corum/Getty Images)

In analyzing the events leading up to the attack on the Capitol Building I have put together a series of steps that may be the underlying reasons. I will try to list them and rationalize my thinking as I proceed.

  1. In 2016 Democrats speak about impeaching Trump a week before his inauguration. They rejected his legitimacy, and boldly proclaimed that he was not their president.
  2. Democrats, namely Hillary Clinton used a false narrative of Russian collusion in her campaign against Trump. Then, when it failed the Democrats used the Clinton narrative by blaming Trump for said collusion.
  3. Several FBI employees ran a campaign against the President in an attempt to delegitimize his presidency. One of them, Peter Stzrok was fired. As far as I can remember he is the only one who was punished for his actions against the President.
  4. Democrats led an abusive campaign against the confirmation of Brett Cavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
  5. Democrats were slow to react to the President’s actions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and then used his actions against him in the campaign. I’m waiting for Biden’s miracle to stop the spread. God love him, if he does he will be my hero.
  6. The press has conducted a non-stop assault on the president via false narratives in their reporting. Currently, there is talk of social media companies colluding to prevent Parler a Twitter competitor from doing business, proclaiming it is an anti-trust situation. Isn’t this exactly the same thing the news companies did throughout the last five years?
  7. Two years ago, there was a rumble about inconsistencies within our election process, but since there wasn’t a major candidate running, nothing was done.
  8. Democrats desperate to eliminate Trump proceeded with an impeachment proceeding on a the basis of minuscule phone call with a newly elected Ukrainian leader. During this proceeding they used all manner of debate to sway members of Congress and public opinion. Thankfully, the arguments failed.
  9. COVID-19 made people wonder how they could vote with the need to social distance, to wear masks, and to avoid crowds. A new election process was quickly implemented in many states. All of them ignored their own laws dictating how the process can be changed. Aren’t we a Nation of Laws? The vote by mail system was proposed and implemented illegally against the recommendations of the President and millions of voters.
  10. During the election and the counting process numerous infractions and violations were reported by the election judges. Coincidentally, most infractions were in four states that Trump needed to win. Thousands of election judges filed sworn statements of their observations of illegal actions. Every challenge against the validity of the count was ruefully dismissed by democrat judges. They didn’t offer any valid reason for their decision. They did claim that there wasn’t enough fraud to make a difference in the outcome. Since when does fraud have an allowable limit? Isn’t any infraction of the law to be met with equal judicial concern? This inaction by the courts and States involved were a thorn in the side of most voters, but the courts did not give a hoots-ass about examining or investigating the process.
  11. Finally, the election arrived in the Senate for the official count to declare a winner. In the course of history, there have been challenges to the accuracy of the Electoral College results. This time was to be no different, Several Senators declared they would challenge the votes of several states. To my knowledge only Senator Cruz made such a challenge before hell broke loose.
  12. It is my contention that had the Senate given the challengers some time to debate as is the custom the invasion may have been avoided. All they would have had to do is to listen to the arguments and then decide whether it made sense to allow the electoral votes to be counted. The Senate did not act that way. Instead they chose to ignore the challenge and to impeach the President for inciting a riot.

I stopped at twelve because my feeble old brain is nearing exhaustion. There are scores more reasons why we the people have witnessed a committed, organized, planned take down of a legally elected president of the United States. I guess these reasons are called politics.

If there is any one theme throughout this scenario it has been to avoid listening to the other side. The Congress was designed to allow dispute to be settled civilly using debate as the tool for convincing the sides how to make up their minds to what is best for the country.

I suspect that the process has evolved from using civil debate and sound arguments as a method to the twenty-first century method of using polls and media to sway public opinion. What seems to be most important to the Congress is not what is best for the country but what is best for their re-election prospects.

In the beginning of this I wrote about the dilemma of my unfinished book. In my story, the British American Colonists are on the rise and trying to secede from British rule. The colonists are ill equipped, and undermanned, but determined to stand up to the mighty British Empire in North America. The easiest end to write will be to put down the uprising in a manner similar to what happened last week. Except, I would make it a whole lot bloodier with many bodies left dead on the battlefield.
