California Commercial Trucks
I just can't understand how these big government thugs get elected. Newsome is a Marxist by definition. Anyone that can't look at California and realize the effects of leftist policies has to be in denial.
I was in the trucking industry for 22 years and this law Newsome is pushing for will not only effect truckers but everyone that purchases goods from retailers. These leftist only hurt the working class. Lot of food products come from California..you can figure out the outcome. How do these tyrants get elected.
Because many “progressives” think with their heart instead of their brain. They vote and think in terms of a fantasy world where gravity and laws of nature don’t apply. Where it’s more about how you feel and that if your a “progressive” your a more enlightened, intelligent person. Never mind the pesky facts getting in the way.
These same feel good, Do-gooders tell us to go all electric. Decouple from fossil fuels. Newsome and his ilk want us to go “green” and buy electric vehicles.
These pesky facts get in the way. EV batteries use rare minerals that come from the ground. These same radicals won’t allow mining or approve a new mine in the U.S for any purpose. So where are all the minerals going to come from. And how will those minerals be mined. With battery powered mining equipment?? :>))).
Of course we will get all of those minerals from China and other enemies of the U.S.
So after we have crippled our economy, destroyed our fossil fuel infrastructure. Torn down fossil fuel power plants.
China will have complete dominance over our energy and transportation.
This holds true on every policy they want to enact. Essentially sawing off the gangplank behind us.
But hey at least it makes them feel good.
What is Newsome pushing for?
Order that bans sale of fossil fuel-powered cars by 2035 leads to confusion over commercial trucks impact
California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed an executive order Wednesday that aims to end the sale of new gasoline- and diesel-powered passenger cars in the state by 2035.
Newsom said in a statement that adoption of zero-emissions vehicles would reduce greenhouse gas pollution that contributes to climate change.
The Leftists next savior
There's a reason why the middle income population is eroding in California...that's what happens with Marxism, Socialism..the very wealthy then everybody else on the bottom. I'm not referring to just Democrats...anyone for big gov control is the culprit
COMMIEfornia is just plain NUTS! : (
And like a lot of government regulations, it doesn’t do what it was intended to do in the first place......................” California passed the AB5 law in 2019, aiming at gig-economy giants including Uber, Lyft and DoorDash. But these companies won exemption, along with other professionals, including musicians, freelance writers and architects. The trucking industry scored a temporary injunction that remained in place until last week’s Supreme Court decision.”
It's just hard to believe there's that many people that would vote for these thugs
The smart play would be to tell the liberals that it’s Trumps executive order not Newsome’s. Then they would automatically be against it.
They apparently believe everything they read:>))
You got that right..my father-in-law believes everything CNN says..my 18 yr old knows better
The gig worker law in CA is such bad legislation, typical of what we see come out of Sacramento. It was initially conceived to clarify the working situation with Uber/Lyft drivers and the like, but was so broadly written that impacted a wide variety of industries. As I understand it, short-haul drivers are generally independent contractors and trips are bid out by them by brokers. Now they will either have to essentially become employees of those brokers or move out of state if they want to remain independent.
I wish States like NM would move to ban immigration from California.
Californian's wanting asylum in another state should be bused to Delaware, DC or NYC
I just don't care anymore...SMH!
Altitude- apparently it's a race to who gets to mine Iceland. Interesting article but you'll have to google it.
Yup and when they ban AC due to electricity use do you think they will be sweating on a hot day?
My question is how can folks not see how hypocritical they are
Most don’t, but not enough to throw them out….Yet!
The Dems are priming Newsome for a presidential run.
Newsome wrecked SF as mayor- ask the working class folks that had to step over his free heroin needles on the sidewalk. He is the original ‘Let criminals walk” and pumped the whole sanctuary city thing.
His energy policy is to shut down nat gas power plants and pay up to 400% for power from Nv and AZ. We have rolling brownouts and our grid cannot handle the influx of EVs.
Just ask the many businesses he drove away: Tesla, Schwab, Chevron, Honywell, and many more amounting to hundreds of thousands of jobs. I could go on and on….
Hopefully the folks that instinctively check the Democrat box everytime will be smarter about this disaster.
Anyone do any scouting for opening day yet. Any action?
Bruce, you would think people could look at the Leftist track record..like Newsome, and figure it out
BouBound, seeing some nice whitetail bucks in velvet. Right now they're in and around agriculture areas but when acorns drop next month they'll go up into the oak ridges. Hard to pattern that so early.
I'm ready to do some scouting next month.
Although it will still be hot down here..really won't cool off much till October
