    You're wrong, though these days you're only wrong about a teensy tiny fraction of things. The motor fuels tax does not apply to fuel sold to railroads. So if you were to pick up an item from a distributor with a siding while on your bicycle...

    Republicans are fighting for a multi-billion dollar boondoggle that can be defeated by any old aircraft--or a few determined people with ten dollar shovels. Democrats are fighting for a couple of brown-baby-bombing wars that benefit only oil companies and pharmaceutical companies. If what is morally right entered into the equation, you wouldn't have pro-boondoggle "conservatives" and pro-imperialist corporate welfare wars "liberals". People stand for nothing (both Team Red and Team Blue certainly mean nothing today) and they're falling for anything and everything. Morally right? If the public gave what's morally right a moment's consideration, we would indeed all be much, much better off. But they don't. Or, rather, those who do get banned from Facebook and are never heard from again.

    Of course. But you impose it on everyone. And you make it mandatory that every vehicle reports every mile you drive, every place you go, and as a happy "unintended" consequence, everyone you associate with. And how do you make people happy to be spied on? You tell them the only alternative is for their TV and their toaster to pay road taxes.

    And when did this nearly perfect system begin getting perverted? The moment the federal motor fuel tax began. While it was strictly done at the state level it was misused and abused much less, and never abused nationwide.

    When I'm wrong I'm wrong and I admit that some of this information on Gabbard is disturbing as I have liked alot of what she says over the years regarding this topic of Intervention. but, CFR and bad voting record on intervention, plus avoiding the organizations devoted to non-intervention is a red star cluster and should be considered. I'll give credit to Swordsmyth for pointing this out.

    Well, yes, that looked like what you were saying. Of course, no matter how badly he screws his supporters by not keeping his promises, you spammed for him and now you own him, right? So when push comes to shove, you will always revert to your same old cliches, right? 1. Come to website of candidate one doesn't support. 2. Start spamming candidate one does support. 3. Abuse anyone who explains why we gathered here to support a better candidate.

    Sure it is--if they're fascists. Of course, you can claim no one warned you they're fascists--until someone does. At the very least a person can refrain from abusing the people who tell them their favorite fascist is a fascist, instead of doubling down and removing any hope that anyone will ever take one seriously again.

    Gee, a law that spends money without any human input, being sold as a cut because it only automatically spends at the old rate for four months. And no provision whatsoever for finding the money it spends? And Mike Lee is pushing this? I am disappointed by that. The Constitution calls for money to be appropriated from us and apportioned only by representatives that we can vote out every two years. It makes no provision for our money being snatched and spent by an automatic provision of some law even after we vote the bums that passed it out. It isn't a matter of, does it cut enough of our taxes appropriated and apportioned without representation. It's a matter of...

    But then you don't get to scream and cry and have wet meltdowns for the tool the fake news says isn't a tool, and call those who see he's a tool all kinds of nasty names, before finding out he's a tool and you just got suckered into screwing us all. Don't you know how the world works? Why would we demand to be allowed to be self-reliant when we can spend every fourth year slandering people who tell us the truth about the fascist who is kissing our asses? Freedom's all right, I guess, but not as much fun as abusing the people who tell me my favorite fascist really is a fascist. Of course, two years later we all look like total asses and we're still not free. But somehow that's always forgotten again when election year rolls around again and we get to abuse each other for pointing out that the fake news is lying to us again. Talk freedom all you want. In 2020 kahless will still have a new favorite fascist, and will still abuse you for telling the truth.

    Yeah, I agree, Pete. I still like gas turbines for hybrids. They're smooth. They run on any flammable liquid or gas. They make instant heat. They aren't quick to accelerate unless you waste fuel spinning it up before the light turns green. A turbine is like a turbocharged engine. There's turbo lag. They have to spool up before they put out. They aren't economical. But in a series hybrid, they only turn the generators, and with batteries and capacitors, the turbine can run at a constant speed until you have stored enough juice. And if you build a front wheel drive turbine, a motor in back will give you good, instant rear drive acceleration and a smooth, stable front turbine on the front wheels will maintain your speed. This straight electric nonsense is just a way to prevent road trips. I'll fight it. I like road trips.

    Ant war? She has taken a position in an ant war? As far as anti-war, she's exactly the same as Trump. She sounds good, but acts like she's CFR. As Hillary said, 'What difference does it make?' In that department, and several others, she is Trump--a Democrat acting like a renegade.

    You aren't wrong. Not even a tiny bit. But I see why he's confused. Just there to charge the batteries? Or there to keep them from being discharged? No way to mechanically connect the engine to any wheels, yes. But no way to 'connect its output'? Remember, no existing diesel-electric locomotive is a hybrid. Power generated goes straight to the traction motors... They manage to move a lot of 600 volt electricity around without ever sticking it in a battery.

    Why on Earth would you feel the need to charge it in fifteen minutes if you're camping? Do you have any idea how much horsepower that would take? If you put that kind of power to the wheels--three hundred miles' worth in fifteen minutes--theoretically you'd be doing 1200 mph. What's the matter with running a little Onan for a few hours?

    Another terrible call in the Patriots' favor. I gave up on the NFL until they brought back instant replay. It won't be, if it's up to the Chiefs. They tightened up their defense significantly since Week Six, when Justin Houston was still down. If the league has its way, however... The Chiefs will have to beat both the Patriots and the officials. Can they do it? Maybe.

    They won't even show a replay of #66's alleged holding so we can judge how ticky-tack that call was. Yeah, I'm sick of Brady. But I'm also sick of hearing about Rivers. Yes, he can be good. But some days he just goes into panic mode. Like today.

    Well, yeah, Belichick, it was a fumble. So, instead of a first down at the spot of the tackle, the Chargers have a first down a yard and a half farther down field. That's the dumbest thing I've ever seen Belichick do.

    Now you're the one not understanding his point. There are two ways to do a hybrid automobile. You can take a conventional vehicle, say one with front wheel drive, and add motor/generator(s) to, say, the rear wheels, and a system and a battery. Now, this vehicle has the weight of a conventional drive line, the weight of the motor(s), and the weight of the battery. It recaptures braking energy, and it's easy for an experienced driver to operate. But it's way, way overweight. Or you can do what locomotive builders did. You can take an electric vehicle and add an engine-driven generator to it. No heavy transmission is required, because all the power the engine makes can be transmitted to the wheels through the wheel motor/generators. With no transmission, clearly the engine can only have one job: It turns the main generator. Batteries are heavy enough without hauling an automatic transaxle around too. See what he means?
