Don't want to buy an EV. Uncle Sam says how dare you. You'll be made to purchase them.

President Joe Biden further accelerated the nation’s switch to electric vehicles by announcing two proposed federal rule changes aimed at reducing greenhouse gases and other pollutants in motor vehicle emissions.

The changes, announced on April 12, would affect virtually all gasoline-powered vehicles on U.S. highways, save consumers an estimated $12,000 in fuel and maintenance costs over the life of a vehicle, and avoid almost 10 billion tons of carbon dioxide emissions through 2055, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The move aims to further the president’s goal of having 50 percent of all new cars and light trucks and 30 percent of new medium- and heavy-duty trucks sold in 2030 be zero-emission vehicles. Electric vehicles (EVs) are considered zero-emission vehicles.

The EPA estimates that approval of these rules would result in 67 percent of new passenger vehicles and light trucks being EVs by 2032, along with 50 percent of buses, 35 percent of short-haul freight tractors, and 25 percent of long-haul freight tractors.

During his speech, Biden told the Irish audience, “As a matter of fact, as you walk into my office in the Oval Office in the United States Capitol, guess what? You know who founded, designed, and built the White House? An Irishman, no not a joke.


On the bright side he didn't say "Pussy".

Is there hope for journalism? Maybe. Is there hope for school boards? Probably not.

High school student reporters reveal their new principal's graduate degrees were from a diploma mill; she resigns


What began as a routine school newspaper interview "to introduce the new principal to the community" ended in an investigation and resignation.

"Days after student reporters at Pittsburg High School in Kansas dug into the background of their newly hired principal and found questionable credentials, she resigned from the $93,000-a-year job," reports Mará Rose Williams of The Kansas City Star. "Student journalists published a story questioning the legitimacy of the private college — Corllins University — where Robertson got her master's and doctorate degrees years ago. Department of Education officials, contacted by The Star, confirmed student reports; the federal agency could not find evidence of Corllins in operation. The school wasn't included on the agency's list of schools closed since 1986. Robertson earned her bachelor's degree from the University of Tulsa."

Drunk man causes chaos after breaking into Naples Police Department


NAPLES, Fla. — A drunk man was arrested after sneaking into the Naples Police Department and recklessly exploring.

Joseph Moulton, 36, jumped the fence of the south parking lot and went inside an unlocked patrol cruiser where he sat for a few minutes until he saw people come outside. Moulton hid in the bushes and then took action once the coast was clear.

According to the police report, Moulton used the nozzle of a water hose and shoved it underneath the west door before turning the water on, causing at least an inch of flood damage.
