Exactly!

Well, at least they haven't crammed the leftist planned taxation and a carbon tax. Yet. It's coming.  We will eventually wind up with 3300 lb paper weights. I was reading a lot of the proposed legislation across the nation. We live in dark times.

I was stewing on this earlier this morning after reading yet another article about the fantastic new fully-electric cars [in AutoWeek].
In contrast to the coming onslaught of this battery-powered finery...
We read daily about the state or federal revenue shortages. Hmmm - battery power car pays no fuel tax for road use. NJ will likely raise our fuel tax for the 3rd time in 3 years.
And, they've already closed one Nuke plant, and more [at least in the mid-Atlantic area] will follow in the next few of years.
The proposed off-shore wind farms are estimated to provide power at "only"  ::) ??? 2-1/2 times the current rates  :o That's if the permitting could ever be worked out  ???
I'm not sure where all of the power will be generated?

Seems to me that soon the gasoline tax will be viewed as just another "sin tax", thus any outrageous % will be considered OK - it's all for the common good?????

When you can't get rid of the "guns" you tax the bullets enough to make them unobtainable

The Ohio legislator has just proposed a $200 annual registration fee for electric vehicles and $100 for hybrids to make up for loss of revenue on the gasoline tax.

You do't need to. Ammo got expensive.

Primarily Due to regulations.

What's funny is I know many vote for the same ones who jumped on the Socialism band wagon. This has always been the left's goal.
Self-defeating wouldn't you say? It's all fun and games until you lose everything or the government takes your business in the name of the "people" or regulates it to the point it goes under. California is a prime example.

I am a  So Ca native, and there is nothing clean about the air in Ca. LOL   I do miss the ocean to the mountains in two hours and without a doubt the best weather in the nation.  I just can't stand what has been done and how I was treated by a state that spends billions on Illegal aliens and those who did nothing to serve the people of the state while those of us who did have to fight, sue and deal with Kangaroo courts while what we earned stolen from us.

Yes, I do remember them!  I remember how it felt during hell week playing football. Felt like a two ton gorilla on your chest!
I remember the offshore breezes pushing the smog inland against the mountain ranges. Even been up in Big Bear above the "layer"
of grey.
