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”

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.

Lynch Mob = U.S. Congress

Most likely I will receive some pretty harsh criticism for expressing my views here today, but since I last checked my First Amendment right to freedom of speech is still in effect. Last week, I watched in horror as a mob of protesters stormed the US Capital building for what purpose we don’t know, and maybe we will never know. All I saw was an action that would destroy the legacy of one of the greatest president’s we have had since Ronald Reagan.

What happened fits the definition of a mob lynching. Except, this time it is a white man being lynched for supposedly inciting a riot. His life is not to be taken literally as in an actual lynching, except his political, and career-life is being destroyed under the pretext of service to justice.

A lynching is a killing by a mob of people. The NAACP later agreed that for a killing to qualify as a lynching, the killers had to act under pretext of service to justice, their race or tradition. …

The rush to impeach the President is nothing short of a hate crime being perpetrated upon the victim. Since his own inauguration one year ago, the Washington mob has been working overtime to destroy the man and his presidency. The Speaker of the House has very openly expressed a desire to bring the man down. The speedy action being taken by the world to condemn Trump is without a grand jury, trial by peers, and a jury verdict. Where is the man’s Fifth & Sixth Amendment right to process. All these people want is to destroy the man.

Page from my book Nightmares From Obama

Maybe I am looking at this myopically, but I cannot fathom why Trump and his followers provoke so much hatred by the Democrats, Never Trumpers, and the Press. Only one thing justifies such hatred, Donald Trump shut off a good thing. First of all, he invented and liberally used the term Swamp to define the layers of bureaucracy that permeate our system. His attitude toward the Swamp was one of elimination, not promotion. The US Government budget exceeds trillions of dollars, and most of our Congressmen are in it to get a piece of that pie. I also truly believe that the many bureaucracies working within the Departments also skim from the trillion dollar pie. Can I prove that, no, but I cannot prove mass dishonesty within the voting system either, but I am not totally deaf yet, and I hear things going on. Former Chicago Democrat mayor Richard J Daley promoted “machine politics” and looked upon the graft as good for the community. Every big city in the country now practices machine politics and uses the city budgets to promote graft. Look at the condition of the cities, all of them are blighted, murder capitals, while the City Councilmen are living the high life to the detriment of citizens.

In days of yore the lynch mob did not check to see if they were right or wrong, they acted. Often they hung a person who was not guilty of any crime. The problem with that kind of justice is that it cannot give a person’s life back. In the case of President Trump, his professional life is most likely already destroyed no matter whether the Congress impeaches him or not. The speed with which all his enemies have gone to denounce him has registered across the world. Most likely, he will die a pauper impeached, or not. What the Democrats fear the most is that we the people will re-elect him if he is given another chance. They must slay the dragon, or it will rise again to eat the slayer.

The Congress highlighted their hypocrisy during this event. Throughout the summer of 2020 when western cities were being burned by protestors, and policemen killed, the Congress had it’s head stuck in the sand with it’s ass standing tall mooning us. During last week’s protest turned riotous it is different, because it was the Congress whose house was threatened, it was the Congressmen who had to hide from harm, it was personal. Of course they all shamelessly cowered behind the curtain of harm to our Republic, but I know, and you know that this time it was their own ass in jeopardy.

The game of politics is ruthless and brutal. It is no longer a debating forum where the power of debate arguments convince the legislature to vote for or against a law. Politics has evolved into a win or lose game that will be the ultimate downfall of our Republic.

God Bless America

Its been a couple of days since the storming of the Capitol building, and I am now just beginning to ooze down off the ceiling. If ever there was a stupid thing to do, that was it. The rioters played right into the hands of the Democrats and gave them a giant gift. They have been relentlessly trying to destroy President Trump since 2016 without success, and now they are nailing his coffin shut, maybe.

The left must kill him, and then fill his lifeless body with unnecessary lead to make sure he is dead. Why? Because he is the embodiment of what the right side of the country feels, believes, and prays for. I cringed when I saw the film of the crowd takeover and the damage they inflicted, but at the same time, inwardly my soul cheered them on. What surprised me the most was how unprepared the Capital is for such an event.

Immediately, two things came to mind. First, I truly believe there was an outside leftist squadron of people who breeched the defenses. Second, this was a trailer for how a real government takeover might begin. The biggest problem I see is that the people who are most responsible for this event don’t see how they are implicated. Or, they don’t want to believe they can be implicated. They are too high in office and above the common man to be implicated.

The people who protested that day are all frustrated by the lack of attention given to the myriad of evidence pointing toward election abuse. The Senate, the Congress, and Judicial all refused to give the matter any weight whatsoever. I too, am frustrated with how easy it is to conduct rigged elections in ways that no one can recognize the extent of the problem. I have written about my thoughts on using electronic voting machines. If anything is prone to being rigged to swing votes one way or the other a computer is it. There are also very many computer savvy people in the world who can perform such internal programming.

President Trump made a grand play at trying to use the system to highlight where the problems lie. Our country full of extreme Leftists is against him and could smell blood when the election results swung their way. It was essentially one man against the entire government. My frustration lies with the imbecilic administrators and lawmakers who rejected every attempt to listen to, or give hearing to the many accusations of wrong doing. The worst argument I heard was that the number of wrongly cast ballots was not enough to affect the outcome. Just how much wrong is right? When do we begin to use the amount of wrong as a line of demarcation? We are a nation of laws, but let’s just change election laws by ignoring the law written to define how to run elections.

The left has habitually been pushing the line to ease the burden of punishment on perpetrators rather than do the work of changing the laws to meet the same end result. Let us abolish the death sentance because the murderer didn’t mean to kill the victim, let’s not jail drug abusers as a way to cure their disease, let’s invent ways to keep from sending abusers to prison and to change their behavior instead, let’s remove God from all things so our kids can grow up and choose God for themselves. Let’s hide all examples of the ten commandments from public view, the list goes on endlessly. In the meantime the population gets more and more lawless and behaves with less morality.

I refuse to watch news programs any more because all I hear is an endless barrage of negative accusations against a man I believe will go down in history as one of our greatest presidents. True, his speech at the gathering of the crowd might be construed as an incitement to angry protest. What I don’t understand is why so few people broke into the Capitol building when the reports are that tens of thousands of people were assembled. No amount of Capitol police, or even the National Guard could overcome a charge of that many attackers. What does make sense to me is that an ANTIFA like organization was present at the head of the group and then ambushed a peaceful protest and turned it into a media circus. Of course the anti-Trump press was present in copious numbers itching and ready to record all for the world to witness.

If one message is sent to our government leaders it should be this, you deliberately sidestepped a giant mis-justice in the election which upset half of the country, and as a result to become, distrustful, and frustrated by your lack of stomach to do your job. All it would have taken to keep this terrible incident from occurring was at least one challenge that would have resulted in a recount, or an investigation. You are famous for doing investigations, why not one that the country believes should be done? Your hatred for President Donald Trump is the only reason for not doing so. That is not a valid reason for shirking your duty. My job, by the way, is to make sure that I use every sinew of my aged body to make certain you are never elected into a position of authority again. I promise I will come after you beginning with one Adam Kinzinger whom I trusted implicitly from the very first time I met him, and marked him as a patriot. His true colors have been exposed and he is no different than the money grubbing representatives and senators we call our leaders.

God Bless America, we need His help more than ever.

Manual vs Automated

Last week I read a short article about a forensic investigation on a voting machine used in one of the battleground states. There was one word in the piece that disturbed me to the point of losing sleep, i.e. algorithm. Somehow the word algorithm flies in the face of the performance of a voting machine. I’m sure there is a very good reason for using algorithms in such a device, but I sure as hell can’t understand it.

As an engineer who dealt with designing machines most of his life my design would have had a very simple function, count and add. I am sure the two words are redundant since counting is a form of adding. So let’s just say I would have designed the voting machine to do one thing, count. Of course there would be multiple counters inside, one for each candidate being voted for. If I wanted to doll it up and charge more money for my design I would have added a total count summary for each candidate, and a simple feature to compare the votes of competing candidates with a highlight on the candidate with the most votes. End of design. Not a single algorithm is needed or used. I suppose to determine the winners an algorithm could be used.

What is an algorithm? A set of instructions. Here is an excerpt from an article explaining algorithms

” An algorithm, for the non-programmers among us, is a set of instructions that take an input, A, and provide an output, B, that changes the data involved in some way. Algorithms have a wide variety of applications. In math, they can help calculate functions from points in a data set, among much more advanced things. Aside from their use in programming itself, they play major roles in things like file compression and data encryption.. Still confused, I am too, so let me explain it another way like graphically.

Notice that all the questions in the boxes have two possible responses, yes or no. Each response takes you to another branch with a new question, and the same possible responses, yes or no. This goes on until the question is answered or until one gets bored and walks away from the conversation. Facebook and Twitter use very complicated algorithms to screen your activity on their websites.

If you are still confused, then ask yourself if your Local Congressman has the brains to figure it out? If he can, he is probably configuring the algorithm to win the election without getting any votes at all.

What confuses me is why anyone would want to ask questions internally in a voting machine when the original question is answered very simply as yes or no. In fact, in voting you only answer yes to the candidate you select, and ignore the one you don’t want. Your vote then goes to a tally counter to keep count. At the end the counters display the number of votes each candidate received and after that it is a matter of comparing the number of votes to decide the winner. That comparison can be handled by an algorithm. So I guess I would have to use an algorithm in my design. Any other form of algorithm used has to make assumptions which are input by the machine owner. These assumptions may be used to cheat like hell and to steal elections. There has been a lot of conjecture on the part of some politicians that these machines are responsible for electing Hugo Chavez and Nicolás Maduro, his successor, into office in Venezuela.

In my opinion there is no place for algorithms in a voting machine. We have too many elected officials in place to handle the counting process. How simple would it be to have them read and record the counters in any machine that counts votes?

Machine voting is only one complication in the voting system. COVID-19 caused our brainy Congressional leaders to invent a new scheme for voting. They seemed to have a problem with people coming in to vote under the age old polling place system. Too many people will be in one place and spreading the virus they said. It is much better to vote by mail. If I had to choose voting by mail, I would take voting on a reliable certified algorithm free voting machine over the current vote by mail system. My reason for choosing the machine over the current manual mail system will be the source of separate post.
