Fortunately it will die a death on Trump's desk. And if they really push it look for Republican rule as far as the eye can see. Granted, the ones that want to redistribute your money are always stirring the pot somehow.

Too bad the same argument isn't being made about how Hollywood, sports stars and musicians build energy guzzling mansions and fly around in private jets and drive in pollution heavy sports cars.
You seem to want to jump to conclusions. I didn't even remotely suggest that a Prius was an ideal farm vehicle, but neither is a Focus or an Impala. I've driven the Smoky Mountains, and the Prius would have no problems there... you don't understand how much torque an electric drivetrain produces.

The Georgia mud is nothing compared to gumbo and keg.

If you don't know what kind of terrain that is, then I know you don't understand challenging conditions.

Smart Car
Smart Cars are not electric.

It was always about ultimately picking our pockets. We knew that.

We only have 12 years, and 18 months to get things in order, so why do anything at all?
