As California Gov. Gavin Newsom hovers over Joe Biden like a buzzard circling over a prospector lost in the desert, the media are going into full-on baloney mode to try to convince us that California is doing GREAT and we need its genius leaders in DC to share their "progressive" policies with the entire nation (Question: If that happens, where will people flee to?)
This story is a good reminder that lousy ideas and unwarranted faith in government power are not new to California, and they are already in full force in the Biden Administration, with predictable dire consequences. Years ago, California mandated that by a certain date, 10% of cars on the road must be electric. Well, they could force dealers to take up valuable lot space, but they failed to figure that they couldn’t force people to buy them. The idea had to be dropped after the EVs sat gathering dust on car lots for years.
Well, Joe Biden and his cohorts are equally gung-ho about forcing us all to buy electric cars. Never mind all the problems, like the inadequate charging technology, the manufacturing pollution, the high cost, the inadequate power and range, the difficulty in obtaining minerals for batteries or disposing of them safely, the lack of electric power to charge them all and the occasional fiery battery explosion. Biden thinks federal power is enough to force Americans to buy EVs (what are you going to do, fight back with an F-16?)
No, but Americans still refuse to be forced to buy something they don’t want. Which means it’s déjà vu all over again…
Who could have predicted this?!!
