Pipelines and Electric Cars

It has come to my attention that there are many that suggest that electric cars are the answer to pipeline problems. After all they don’t need gas. I have heard, though I was unable to confirm it, that among them was the energy secretary, Jennifer Granholm.

If Granholm was among them, she should be fired. She is supposed to have some working knowledge of energy. Here’s an alert for all who have thought EVs are the solution to pipeline problems. Almost all electricity originates from oil or natural gas. If the oil line stayed down for too long, they would have had to start shutting down parts of the electric grid, then eventually all of it.

Then where will you go to charge your electric vehicle?

As a side note, Granholm has allegedly invested heavily into an electric car company. There are two things I have to say about that. First, it is a dumb investment at this time. It will take decades before EVs will be practical. Second, it would appear as if it was not ethical. She ought not be invested in anything involved in energy or she should resign her post immediately. I think they call that sort of thing a conflict of interest.

Then again, she does have a D after her name. She will be able to get away with it.

Energy (Oil)

For a nation to be strong, it all starts with oil, coal and natural gas. We need steel, we need aluminum and we need food, but it all starts with energy. We need the energy to make steel. We need energy by the megawatt to make aluminum. We need energy to extract it all from the earth and we need energy to make the raw products, which we turn into cars, tractors, trucks and a list far too long for me to mention.

You remove the energy from us and our country will go back into the stone ages so fast it would make your head spin.

By the way, we need the oil in three ways for farming. We need it for the fertilizer, for the pesticides and for the operation of farm equipment. If the tractors remain silent, we won’t eat. Those of us who are able, might grow a little in our backyards but not nearly enough. Besides, the plants need water. Actually, so do we. Without fuel, the water pumps won’t work. We might haul it up from the lakes and rivers, but we would have to do that by real horse power the type that eats hay.

But that’s not the half of it. There will be no way to remove the trash and garbage, especially from heavily populated urban areas. Disease would run rampant in weeks, if not sooner.

and, guess what. The dummycrats want us to wean ourselves off oil in a couple of decades. They want us to rid ourselves of it all. It is dumb. Guess what? Our farms not only feed our people here in the US but we feed people all over the world. If the democrats have their way, the folks in other countries will starve too. They will wonder why the largest producers of food in the world aren’t sending them any food. We will have to tell them. Sorry. The dummycrats don’t want us to produce carbon dioxide.

Maybe those dummycrats would like to explain to the children of our nation why we have no more potatoes. Those Black lives who matter. They will die without food.

But they don’t care. They don’t care about any lives, least of all Black lives. Their whole purpose is control. They want to win those elections and they will tell us anything to that goal. The truth is, Obama killed thousands by withdrawing the troops from Iraq early. Ask him if he lost one night of sleep over it. The governor of New York directly caused the death of 11,000 people as a result of the virus. Ask him if he cares.

I don’t know. I lack the research ability, but I would guess at least 1100 of those people who died in those nursing homes were Black, African-Americans. It bothers me more than I can tell and I had nothing to do with it. Had I known and were able, I would have done all I could to prevent it. I don’t think it bothers him one little bit. I sense not one little bit of remorse.

By the way, the government of New York will not let people use fracking to produce oil inside New York. You can easily tell where their interest lie.

As I said, it all starts with energy. Without it, the US becomes another third world country. It is exactly what the dummycrats want. Then they can rule and they can fly around in their planes and drive around in their limos while the rest of us make do.

Unless this is what you want, vote republican and tell your friends to do the same. If you don’t, then after the election, it will be too late. No one will be able to do anything then. and then you will experience first hand what I am saying.

What type of energy will people use then. They will have to burn wood just to stay warm. Do you have any idea how much CO2 and smog wood causes? At least we won’t need to concern ourselves with forest fires. There will be no forests. People will burn the wood to stay warm, those who can. The rest will simply freeze.

Smog in the Los Angeles valley didn’t start with cars but the burning of wood long before white man arrived on the scene.

Contradiction

A few days ago, I wrote that one way to control people is through propaganda, the art of making the unbelievable sound true. Today, let me suggest one way of separating propaganda from reality, contradiction.

Contradiction does not exist in all propaganda, but it does in most. Maybe the best way to demonstrate and convince you of this is by example. Let’s look at the supposed “Green” movement.

In one regard, they want us to give up fossil fuel. Though I am sure there are parts of the movement that would prefer doing away with all mankind, I will confine myself with the less extreme element. These same people are fanatic about cutting down trees.

Now… Let me start by stating on the front end that thoughtless wastes of our resources is horrible on its face. Nonetheless, many of the leaders of these green organizations are among the most wasteful. They don’t want us to drive around in cars while they fly around in personal executive planes. It is but one of their minor contradictions. There mansions are made with wood and their limos drink fuel by the gallon. Some even own yachts, one of the most wasteful ways to use fuel.

However what I really want to point out is their ridiculous attitude toward forests, especially in our western states. They absolutely refuse to let anyone go in and remove even one out of three of the trees. It is something called forest management. New trees can be planted.

The point is this. Every time we have a forest fire, or nowadays what they prefer to call wildfires, that part of the forest is lost. If the density of the trees were to be decreased, it is possible, maybe probably that the fire could be stopped more quickly, saving the forest we have. So, instead, they insist to maintain the density of the fuel and they lose them all, which endangers human lives, which endangers animal lives, and which leaves our hills and mountains bare to the inevitable rains. The resulting floods do no one any good, least of all the trees. The trees must have the soil which the floods will most certainly remove.

And… watch… here is the contradiction. The fire will emit far more into the atmosphere than cars or power-plants. Not only that, the fumes they emit are far more poisonous. Finally, if we had removed one third of the trees, all else being equal, that would reduce one third of the fuel. As a result, there would be one third of the poisons released into the air.

And.. by the way, after all is said and done, after the fire, we still have nothing. Actually, it is worse than that. We have less than nothing. And, worse than that, because of the fires, we lose lives and property.

In addition to all that, we use tons of fuel in the effort to extinguish the fires. In addition, we draw enormous amounts of water from lakes and rivers in an effort to put the fires out. And, in addition, the very forest they desire to save becomes a wasteland; millions of acres of it.

And so you see, the contradiction, the reason it is propaganda. The truth of the matter is that the green movement is no more than another means to gain control over the people.

The sad part is, there are million of well meaning people who have become indoctrinated. In their effort to do what they think is good, they hand the controllers something else with which to control us.

Meanwhile, the communists continue their methods in which they make their rules for all others but themselves. Notice, no leader of any communist country goes hungry. They all eat well while their servants starve.

Their goal is the set this up under one world government. In this world, we would all be workers while they would all be eaters. We would hit our pillows at night, tired and hungry. They would party past midnight. Many of them would fall asleep from their drunken stupor.

As I wrote before, communism is not their goal but rather their tool, their method that they use to achieve their goal, control. The only place that the beautiful world that Marx talked about exists is in the minds of the masses that are duped by the controllers. One of the methods they use is propaganda. It only works when the masses believe it. Right now, the masses believe it. They have been duped. The only question is, can we ever get them to see the truth in time or are we doomed to be another Russia.

I might remind you, very few lived well in Russia. That is true even today. The Russian controllers have left the country in a shambles. The communist controllers have only been replaces by other controllers. Their goal is still the same, world conquest. It is nothing new. It is certainly older than the kings of Persia. It is older than the pharaohs of Egypt. I don’t know when it all started but it seems as old as civilization itself.

Maximo Alvarez

After a brief look over the Web, I think most agree with me that Maximo Alvarez had the best speech so far during the Republican convention. He said he saw it all before. He knew the pattern. To be sure, he spoke many of the same words I did, but he spoke from first hand experience. He fought back tears as he saw the history being repeated.

It is proper to make sure that your realize that his parents escaped Spain during the civil war there. Then he escaped Fidel Castro’s Cuba. He said he saw people around him suffer and die before he left the island nation. At the end of his speech he said, “There is nowhere left to go.”

Now, may I add my words?

I have seen people become indignant because we dare to call Biden a communism. Well, when he speaks the words of a communist, in my book, that makes him a communist.

New York tried socialism and it didn’t work. California is trying socialism and it isn’t work. At one time both states had massive successful economies. By the day, their economies are crumbling. The worst part is that they aren’t satisfied with that. They expect to force their communism on us all while expecting us to bail them out.

They cannot manage their forests, so now, the California governor begs us for money to help them fight their fires. Because New York could not manage their medical supplies, the governor begged for money and supplies from the rest of us. Then he blames the president for the problem that came from a communist country. Tell me that makes sense.

If you want to know what the soviet union of the United States would look like, look at what New York looks like now. People are leaving the state in bunches. New York used to be the most populace state. Now, it follows California and Florida. If things continue, they could end up with less people than Mississippi.

Then as Maximo Alvarez said, where do we go when all the states resemble New York. What do we do when the US resembles China or Russia. What do we do when we go to the store and can’t find a loaf of bread? What do we do when there is no gasoline at the stations? What happens when they turn off the electricity as they do in California?

Right now, it only happens in other countries. Right now, it only happens in other states. What do you do you do when it happens here? What do we do? Where do we go?

We all make mistakes, small and great. Most of our mistakes we can recover from. Letting Biden and his friends take over would be a major mistake that we would never recover from–ever.

Drive Throughs

Perhaps one of man’s worst inventions is the drive-through.  I sit there in line and wait for someone to take my order at the counter and watch five orders go out through the drive-through window.  It just isn’t right.  They always put their highest priority on the drive-through window.  …and by the way, that is also where they put their best employees.

I know why they do it.  It is where they make their big money.  We have a Chick Filet nearby and the drive through generally has at least twenty cars waiting there to get their food.  Okay.  The cars aren’t waiting for the food.  It is the people in them that are hungry.  At least their counter staff is fast and efficient.  Even when the place is packed, I rarely have to wait but a few minutes to order my food.  The problem with them is finding a table.  (The place usually is packed.)

I learned a trick with them.  I park in a large parking lot next to the place.  If I don’t I just about can’t get out because of those trying to get in.  Besides, it does little good trying to find a place to park in their parking lot.  Large though it might be, it is usually full.

One thing I don’t understand is why the dummycrats don’t try to outlaw drive-throughs.  I think of all the other things they try to outlaw and it really makes me wonder.  After all, they were the ones that made McDonald’s get rid of the extra large drinks.  (Now that was dumb.  Now I have to go back and fill my Diet Coke up three times instead of twice.)

At any rate, drive-throughs are very bad for the environment.  Cars sit there and idle, maybe for half an hour.  That is a lot of carbon dioxide they spew out while their owners wait for their food.  Besides, it wastes fuel.  I just wonder how many barrels of oil are used just to allow drivers to sit in their air-conditioned cars while waiting for their food.

For that matter, why do the owners insist on waiting in their cars?  I have half a suspicion that most of them are dummycrats.  After all, none of them are complaining yet.  Moreover, they are likely the ones that are too lazy to walk a few yards from their cars into the restaurant.  (By the way, they don’t usually have to give up their air-conditioning but for a few seconds.  Most restaurants are air-conditioned.)  For some reason, they like to sit in their big SUV’s or pickups and glare at the rest of us for daring to use their precious resources.  …and of course, complain about the big drinks we buy.

Naturally, I just might be wrong, but if the drive-throughs were outlawed, I suspect that it would be the dummmycrats that would yell the loudest.  There would be an exception though.  Those that live in big cities mostly don’t use drive-throughs.  Mostly, they don’t drive.  Mostly, they just like to raise the taxes on the rest of us who do and use it on their buses and trains.

I don’t know New York City too well.  The only time I was there I spent a couple of hours looking out the windows of an airport waiting for a connecting flight.  However, I would guess, in the city proper, there aren’t many drive-throughs.  I suppose there are a few walkups.  It might seem odd to some, but I have seen a few walkups around here, though it was a drugstore.

I think about the craziest I saw was a drive-through pizza place.  To me, that simply does not make sense.  After all, it does take roughly twenty minutes to make a decent pizza.  None the less, it was late and they closed their dining room and counter so all pizzas had to be ordered at the drive-through window.  Needless to say, I took one look at that and found somewhere else.  I wasn’t about to wait until my turn to order my pizza and then wait for the pizza, all the time with my engine idling.  Considering it was near freezing outside, I wasn’t about to wait without the warmth of my heater either.

Save the World!

First disallow all private jets.  It would decrease carbon dioxide by incalculable tons.  Besides, it would likely cut down on the cost of travel on commercial airlines.  More folks would want to fly first class… decreasing the cost for those of us flying coach.

Second, require proper management of the forest.  Get rid of dead trees and undergrowth.  One forest fire likely produces more carbon dioxide than thousands of cars spew out in a year.  Besides, burning wood also produces a bunch of carbon monoxide.  Good forest management would drastically cut down on the quantity and size of forest fires.  The undeniable fact is the dead trees are nothing more than fuel for the next fire.  Thinning the trees in the forest insures that the remaining trees survive… as well as those creatures living in the forest.

The fact is that fuels such as gasoline and natural gas have drastically improved things.  Before internal combustion engines, the streets were lined with disease ridden horse manure.  Before we heated our homes with natural gas, we used wood and coal.  I think most of us would not want to return to those “good ole days.”  On the other hand, lets remember who generates most of the carbon dioxide — those who have the big houses and cars — many of which are those forcing the ecology down our throats.  Al Gore certainly uses his share of fuel.  He has a nice big house and flies around in those private jets, he and his countless friends.  (Moreover, his predictions are way off.  According to his movie, Florida should have been completely covered by the ocean years ago.)

Finally, I in no way condone the riots in France, but I can’t believe that anyone should be surprised by them.  The French government is robbing the middle and lower classes in the name of decreasing climate change.  As I said before and I will say again, those forcing the gas tax on people are those who don’t have to pay the taxes and the wealthy.  I assure you, those running France are not going to suffer one little bit from the increase in the cost of gas.  The wealthy don’t suffer the pain when the taxes go up ten or fifteen cents.  Those who drive to and from work daily, on the other hand, feel the pinch every time they have to pull up next to pump.  It means they have to give up something.  In some cases, that isn’t even an option.  It might mean they lose their job because they can’t afford the tax.

My personal opinion is that the climate changers are simply using the so called science for control.  Let’s face it. Controlling our mobility is certainly one method toward that end.  They want to move around freely while the rest of us walk, or use horses.

A Matter of Record

To save repeating myself, let me refer you back to my post Oct 9, 2018 about truth.  Some may have already read it.

During the Republican convention of 2008, Lt. Gov. Steele said, “Drill baby, Drill.”  Later, during the vice presidential debate, Gov Palin repeated it.  Some time later, Obama said it wouldn’t do any good.  At or about that time, the price of oil was $142 per barrel.  Then they started drilling in North Dakota and Texas…  I guess a few other places too, to the dismay of Obama.  The point is, Obama refused to release federal land for drilling.  Indeed, he went out of his way to keep people from drilling.

Oddly, the price went down briefly to $26.21 in 2016.  Currently, though the usage has gone way up, the price is currently about $63.  Moreover, we are virtually self-sufficient, something that I am sure frustrates Obama to no end.

Now, this leads me to believe one of two things.  Obama purposely lied, or he was totally ignorant.  I don’t know which scares me more.  However, given his history, I assume he was lying.  He is the same man that said he had shovel ready projects.  (I would still like to know where those billions went that were appropriated.  I suspect it is lining the pockets of his friends.)  He is also the same man that said you can keep your same doctor.  By the way, he is the same man that has me paying a thousand dollars a month for my wife’s health insurance.

Do you really want to believe that man, an admitted liar.  He himself said, “I guess those projects weren’t shovel ready after all.”  I don’t think I want to believe the man.  Now he is campaigning for his cohorts.   Some people actually believe him.  Some have college degrees.  Can’t figure that out.

It is clear that he just wanted the price of energy to go up so that he could pay for his green projects.  By the way, his green projects didn’t work, none of them.  They were all flops.  Not only that, the windmills are still killing birds, including the protected eagles.
