a few pages back, someone posted how the electrical infrastructure doubled every 10 years in the 60s and 70s.
that was when we had people in charge that actually could get something done. I'm curious how much more electricity we are producing in the last 10 years today?
Funny everytime there's a storm, drought, pandemic, the so called scientists, media types blame it on global warming. Yet every summer when there are rolling black outs or brown out you don't here every talking head on the news blame it on poor govt management of our infrastructure. lack of building power plants. jim

That was when belief in American strength and exceptionalism (and that even though we aren't perfect, American dominance on the world stage was basically a good thing for the world- as compared to the alternatives).... that those things were near universally agreed upon concepts, despite political disagreements on other things. So it was a given that you'd invest in things that made us stronger.

Now, the government, corporations, and pretty much every public institutation basically cowers in fear of morally superior, "decolonization", anti-western-civilization college kids on Twitter who think anything that makes America stronger is racist and evil.

$14k for a new battery and it's not even available. Ford's better idea? Perfect excuse to put a small block V8 and a five speed, maybe a Mustang rear axle. Get out the welder.

Solution? Rent a horse and hitch it to the front and have it tow you around town with a large sign saying can't get a battery. It will tie up traffic and get on the national news. Ford will then step in due to the bad PR and make it right, most likely by offering a discount on a new car as long as the owner sign an NDR to hush it all up. That's what you have to do these days.

8000 jobs destroyed? Meh...we're just expendable pieces on the social engineering game board.

Just like people murdered, raped and assaulted as a result of soft-on-crime policies...

As the government tells us, we all need to learn to make the necessary sacrifices so the ruling class gets the world order they're convinced is best for us.

Sounds like Ford's having a going out of business sale and don't even know it. That's automotive suicide unless a whole lot of things change quickly. They'll be the next to get bailed out on our dime.
