Washington State consumers support tyranny

The title of the KOMO News article is "Opinions vary on Inslee's plans to stop selling gas-powered cars by 2030." Washington State probably has the second-highest adoption of electric cars in America, behind California.  Here are a couple of quotes from Washington residents about the Dictator's plan to eliminate gas-powered cars from Washington roads.  The …

Ronald Reagan said “Freedom is never more than a generation away from extinction”

Does this quote from a young man of my acquaintance prove it?  Over at another Web site, he titled his essay "Good Riddance, America."  His description of how young people feel and act is quite upsetting.  But I think he is absolutely correct.  And I think that my generation, the Baby Boomers, started it. I …

Amid worldwide food shortages, Washington State farmers are being asked to take land out of food production. By Solar Energy companies.

This advertisement appears in my new edition of the Washington State University Magazine.  I graduated from WSU in 1971, and it is the state’s Agriculture University, established by a Morrill Act land grant in the 19th Century.  As are most colleges, WSU is as woke as it gets.  I no longer donate to my alma …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #217: Opposites

For some reason, I'm feeling very oppositional today.  And I caught all these opposites on our shopping trip this afternoon!  My readers will know that I am opposed to the government's insistence that we all drive electric cars, for reasons discussed in many previous posts here.  I happen to live in a far-left-environmental-wacko area of …

Today’s Electric Car Story

It's priceless!  The story on Fox News about a Canadian man who bought his Tesla in 2013, and needs to replace its battery (equivalent to the engine in a gas-powered car).  It is well-known that lithium-ion batteries eventually lose the ability to maintain a charge, and must be replaced.  What is not so well-known, and …

The Left really does inhabit an alternate Universe

In the last couple of days, the Left has amply demonstrated that their Universe greatly differs from obvious Reality.  These stories really have me shaking my head in disbelief.  First, here's an excellent article dealing with the Left's alternate Universe. Have you seen any Republicans "running scared" ahead of the upcoming Midterm Elections?  I sure …

This week’s Electric Car News

This week, there have been some excellent stories on the state of the governments' plans to require everyone to drive electric cars.  The state of Washington had already passed their law that prohibits the sale or registration of gasoline-powered cars by 2035 (please note that the year WAS 2030, and now, for some reason, it …

The lights are going out in Europe

And Germany has been the bellwether.  Back in the early 2000s, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her party made the momentous decision to begin the energy transition from "fossil fuels" to "renewables" as quickly as they could.  The scare-quotes around both terms are on purpose, because fossil fuels are not fossils (who is to say that …

The first consumer product designed for the Great Reset?

The Swiss company, On Holdings, manufactures running shoes.  I first heard about this company in the Wall Street Journal, in an article about their new "Sustainable" running shoe model, the CloudNeo.  This shoe is designed to be used, worn out, and then returned to the company for recycling.  For maybe the first time, a consumer …
