Excitable Pete Buttigieg Wants Millions Of New Electric Vehicles On The Road

You know Pete. He’s the guy Biden picked to be Transportation Secretary

Well, good luck powering all this with “clean energy”. Perhaps if Warmists would agree to build nuclear power plants, but, the majority of them are against that.

Beyond that, who’s paying for the EVs? They aren’t cheap, you know. The least expensive out there, excluding the tiny ones like those you rent in places like Bermuda (which makes sense there), is the Mini Cooper SE, with a range of 110 miles and a base price of $30,750. For that kind of money you could get a Honda Accord EXL or the Toyota Camry equivalent, higher end standard sedans, or the same trim levels for the CRV or RAV4. Their hybrid versions aren’t that much more expensive. And will go a lot longer, have a much lower cost of ownership, and much higher residual values.

(Toledo Blade)  Pete Buttigieg, the presidential hopeful and Indiana mayor, revealed something new about his whip at Tuesday’s Democratic debate.

“I didn’t realize it was unusual to have empty factories that I would see out the windows of my dad’s Chevy Cavalier when he would drive me to school until I went to college,” Mr. Buttigieg said of his hometown of South Bend, where he’s mayor. “Now I drive my own Chevy. It’s a Chevy Cruze, made in Lordstown, which is now one more symbol of the broken promises this president has made to workers.”

OK, that was during the 2019 Democratic primaries. Does anyone think Pete has changed it for an EV?

    Mayor Buttplug couldn’t even run South Bend, In.

    Bwaha! Lolgf https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

    Imagine that. Ol’ Petey didn’t say why that factory was closed but did manage to blame Trump. The factory closed because GM was stopping production of the Cruz because it wasn’t selling. The employees were transferred to other plants around the country, the factory was sold to an EV startup, Lordstown Motors, who is employing people and being backed by GM in their efforts. Seems that nobody really lost in the whole closing and selling of the factory but plenty of people stand to gain. Seems all Demonrats can do is lie.

    Selected as payback for dropping out of democrat primary, not because he knows anything about transportation.

    • Dana says:

      Hey, Joe Biden needed a homosexual for his cabinet, for political reasons. The Honorable Mr Buttigieg will do no more harm at Transportation than he would have anywhere else.

        White, straight, Christian males ALWAYS consider any other choice to be inappropriate.

        White, straight, Christian males BUILT Western society and deserve to always rule!

        • Dana says:

          Well, yes, that’s right. Normal, white, Christian men did build Western civilization, and there’s no (rational) dispute about that.

          Now, we did borrow a couple of very valuable things, such as Arabic numerals from those swarthy brown people, but it wasn’t us who stymied their progress into civilization; they did that to themselves. Once we had availed ourselves of that breakthrough, it was normal, white, Christian males who developed mathematics far beyond what the swarthy brown people did.

          We made use of gunpowder, developed by those yellow devils — can I say yellow devils anymore? — in China, because it helped extend white rule across the globe.

          Note that everywhere you go around the world, the governments still use the language of Western civilization, with pretexts to democratic rule even when it does not exist in reality. The dictators always go through their sham of elections, even though everyone knows that they aren’t free or fair.

          All across the world, people of every nation aspire to the civilization created by normal, white, Christian males. Even with the evil reich-wing dictator Donald Trump leading our nation, other people have been trying to get to the land of the free and the home of the brave.

          We’ve been traveling far
          Without a home
          But not without a star
          Only want to be free
          We huddle close
          Hang on to a dream
          On the boats and on the planes
          They’re coming to America
          Never looking back again
          They’re coming to America
          Home, don’t it seem so far away
          Oh, we’re traveling light today
          In the eye of the storm
          In the eye of the storm
          Home, to a new and a shiny place
          Make our bed, and we’ll say our grace
          Freedom’s light burning warm
          Freedom’s light burning warm
          Everywhere around the world
          They’re coming to America
          Every time that flag’s unfurled
          They’re coming to America
          Got a dream to take them there
          They’re coming to America
          Got a dream they’ve come to share
          They’re coming to America
          They’re coming to America
          They’re coming to America
          They’re coming to America
          They’re coming to America
          Today, today, today, today, today
          My country ’tis of thee
          Sweet land of liberty
          Of thee I sing
          Of thee I sing

    It doesn’t really matter that Joe Biden picked Pete Bootyjudge, because whomever he nominated would be saying the same thing.

    There is one parishioner in our church who drives a Chevy Dolt Bolt. He has a charging station at his house, because there are zero commercial charging stations in our rural county. But, when he plugs in his car to recharge, he’s using sparktricity from a coal burning power plant. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    Ms Dana,

    If you’ve ever listened to Mr Buttigieg you’d understand he’s hardly excitable.

    He would have been a good choice for any cabinet post or as President for that matter. There’s little that a typical proto-con could say that would bother him.

    Recall when Mr Buttigieg gutted Russia Don:

    Trump told Politico Friday that “Alfred E. Neuman cannot become president of the United States,” when he was asked in a phone interview what he thought of the mayor of South Bend, Indiana.

    Asked later about his new moniker, Buttigieg, 37, said he had “to Google” the reference to the mascot of a humor magazine launched in 1952.

    “I guess it’s just a generational thing.”

    LOL. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

  6. President Elect Kye says:

    Nah, it’s visual thing. Buttpeg looks like Alfred E. Neuman like it or not so stop trying to make it into something it isn’t.

    BTW, I’m glad to see you finally recognize ” White, straight, Christian males BUILT Western society and deserve to always rule!” Don’t you think yellow, straight, Buddhist males who built Japan, China, Korea, Thailand and Vietnam deserve to rule the countries they built? I do. Don’t you think black, straight, heathen males who “built” Africa should have the rights to rule their land?

    I really don’t understand how you can be against people ruling their own nations.

    You do realize when one people conquer another and take their land as their own it’s the rule of conquest. You just want to root for our enemies to conquer us and take America for themselves. That’s why you’re a communist, A traitor, a black supremacist, a mooslem enabler and an anti-American quisling.

    Tell us, Elwood, what have straight people done to you that you hate them so?
    What have Whites don to you that you hate them too?
    How have Christians ruined your life so you wish them ill?

    You hate your heritage, your country, your sex and your race so I assume you really hate yourself for being a straight, White, heathen male. So sad.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      Desiring equality in opportunity is not the same as hating the privileged class, but we understand why you say that.

      The United States is a nation of blacks, women, gays, liberals, atheists, Hispanics, Muslims, Jews, Sikhs, transgendered, lesbians, agnostics, Asian-Americans, Indian-Americans, Native Americans, smart people and conservatives, and white, straight, Christians. All with equal rights to make it in America.

      We try to be sympathetic to your feelings of loss.
