    We better build some wind turbines or something equally useless.

    It's getting harder and harder to support the government in the style to which they have become accustomed. They need a lesson in manners and to be taught who serves who.

    I need someone to explain to me where the electricity for this radical shift to only having electric cars is going to come from. It's like 99% of people have this childish assumption that electricity always just appears at the outlet when you stick a plug in, it's just like taxes or gun control. Are we going to burn coal to get it, go back into nuclear or what? Magic?

    I think we should harness the rotational energy of all the veterans whirling in their graves over what the country they gave the ultimate sacrifice for, has become.

    They're gonna turn it off to rural folk

    That's a joke, and a prediction.

    Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. - H.L. Mencken

    That's such a great idea, cause of course they (citiots) can just buy all their food at the grocery store anyway.

    Liberal assumptions carry more weight so now we're into an impossible negative zero situation, shattering reality, and have entered The Upside Down. Or in other words Mr Trudeau's brain.
