While families struggle with keeping food on the table and maintaining their 11 year old vehicle, our President’s plan is to give more and more of our hard earned tax dollars to foreigners and huge corporations through regulation and legislation.

According to Notebook, “representatives of VW and other potential EV battery makers met with European Commission officials last week in Brussels, and laid out their argumentation why they would be putting their Europe-based projects on hold in favor of the US. VW, in particular, calculated that it will receive up to US$10 billion from the US government over the IRA’s 10-year subsidy span.” The Financial Times and Marketwatch also reporting the $10 Billion subsidy.

The article goes on to say “The incentives include US$0.35/kWh of produced battery capacity, as well as a similar assembly subsidy. Analysts recently calculated that Tesla will be getting up to $3.5 billion annually… “

Unfortunately, this means an increase of Chinese imports for materials and further degradation of the people in Africa who have been reported to mine cobalt for EV batteries with their hands. China struck a $6. 5 Billion deal with the African government for mining rights. These deals between Africa and the Chinese were reportedly initiated by the investment firm of Hunter Biden.

Spending billions of tax dollars on new technology while USA citizens are struggling to meet basics needs and our national deficit grows is irresponsible. “Let them eat cake! “

Lithium mines provide the resources for electric vehicle batteries. That resource has just come under fire at its manufacturing plants. The United States Citizens are the Largest Purchasers of Lithium Products for personal and Government uses!

Artisinal mining (small scale) is a popular startup business in Zimbabwe. Women, especially, form small groups to engage in mining through the purchase of mining claims. The Zimbabwe Government has put an immediate stop to the natural citizen’s income in favor of foreign Chinese and English conglomerates. Imagine how that would affect your family such as those who are affected by the Keystone pipeline and other “green” energy promotions by a Government.

Mines Minister Winston Chitando of Zimbabwe issued this regulation “No lithium bearing ores, or unbeneficiated lithium whatsoever, shall be exported from Zimbabwe to another country,” All of the major news outlets have confirmed.

Chinese giants Zhejiang Huayou Cobalt (603799.SS), Sinomine Resource Group (002738.SZ) and Chengxin Lithium Group (002240.SZ) have over the past year acquired lithium mines and projects worth a combined $678 million in Zimbabwe and are at various stages of developing mines and processing plants, which would exempt them from the ban.

The United States Citizens are the Largest Purchaser of Litium Products!

National Debt : Any money owed by the government of a nation.

Federal Deficit: an excess of the federal government’s spending over its revenue

To finanace a debt owed by a nation, they must borrow money against their capital. In a common mans world, the scenario would be taking a loan against something such as your house or car.

A deficit is the amount the government overspends, usually figured on a yearly basis. The USA has a income deficit of $1.375 Trillion in 2022. That means we spend more than we make by $1.375 Trillion.

The USA is ranked 2nd in the monetary Time Bomb “if the U.S. federal government ever needs to completely pay off both its debts and those of its states, territories, and other government entities, then it will find itself ranked second in the world overall, at 979%, behind only the economic debt time bomb that is Japan.”

Irony: Americans pay Trillions of dollars to the same manufacturers politicians propagandize as being evil monsters that pay no tax.

Ford, for example, has been taking taxpayer dollars for years, specifically 2008, 2014, and 2021. They have been in debt for years while claiming on advertisements to Americans that they never took a dime. Watch for those brand new $30 Billion plants in Kentucky and Tennessee built with Inflation Reduction Act tax dollars along with investor George Soros. As a side note, SK International, a South Korea company, partnered with Ford to build those plants.

Its not just the shady investors or the taxpayer dollars but the parts source for which citizens will be forced to buy overpriced transportation to work for that very same manufacturer. The USA procurement phones will be burning up the Chinese wires.

You will find a recycling charge dancing across your tax bill.  Most people believe that property taxes should be eliminated. People are outraged that they are forced to pay a recycling business that many either do not use or do not need listed on their tax bill.

Whether you live in an apartment or own your own home, you pay a fee on your taxes to the curators who orchestrate the pickup of that little blue “Recycling can” every two weeks.   True recycling is conducted at your kitchen trash can and the products you buy, not at the blue barrel. 

Smart choices in products and packaging will produce a far greater effect on the environment than spending thousands upon thousand of gallons of fuel through pickup of those cans.  Elimination of those recycling cans would eliminate a monstrous CO2 emission, the very trucks that pick them up and then deliver their load to facilities that are often times more than 50 miles away.

Local governments are constantly asking citizens for more Tax money to beat the increasing cost of simply doing business.   Instead, our elected should be looking for ways to reduce spending and applying the taxes collected where it is needed most, such as raises for our hard working Emergency service personnel.

It is ironic that a recycling company paid through taxes to “save the environment” wouldn’t see the irony in producing a costly newsletter placed in a newspaper that must be purchased by taxpayers, again, to be informed about their recycling services. The paper wasted on the newsletter, the energy wasted on placing them in a newspaper, and the fuel expended to deliver that newsletter is in complete contrast to the purposes of recycling.

One trash truck produces approximately 401 tons of CO2 emissions yearly.

Creating a dependency infers that one has control over items that others are dependent upon which can be anything from ice cream to electricity to oil.

The dependence is then exasperated by the demand if the product, the more demand, the higher the price.

If I want to take advantage of my country because they have a certain dependance, I would invest in that product where no others in my country could touch like Russia, Ukraine, or maybe Iran and encourage the sale of that product to my country.

I would then write Executive Orders to forbid the manufacturing of that product and instruct my Cabinet Departments to revoke any new leases.  Then I would use my Enviromental lobby group to go after those who are in direct competition with me to, hopefully, get a court to void their ability to produce.  This monopoly situation creates a huge demand for the product I’m invested in which inflates the price of my product and returns my investment 1000 fold.

Arguments over the more than $80 Million for the South Shore project in Michigan City Indiana  have erupted as they begin to lay the ground work for the double track construction with a 12 story building for housing and commercial development.

Many applaud the idea while others question the use of tax dollars on more commercial space while other commercial buildings sit vacant, luxury apartments in the middle of the city above noisy train tracks, tracks that lead to Chicago where many are afraid to travel, and the county’s ability to take care of current residents with housing issues.

In the link provided, (1) we have an idea for a solution to empty commercial space such as old malls.  Taking a lead from Chicago could be an answer to a small town eyesore where a mall is turned into businesses and a church.

The USA “infrastructure” has been a hot debate for months.  Within that bill are very skeptical subjects like internet usage as well as the vehicles that use the infrastructure in the USA.

For gas powered vehicles, If you buy 800 gallons of gas per year , 20,000 miles @ 25 mpg, youll pay $387 in “gas tax”.  The fee is $150 for electric vehicles and $50 for hybrid vehicles in Indiana.

Electric Vehicles weigh more than gas which is why heavy duty trucks pay more taxes. “The Ford F-150 Lightning will weigh about 1,600 pounds more than a similar gas-powered F-150 truck. Similarly, the electric Volvo XC40 Recharge weighs about 1,000 pounds more than a gas-powered Volvo XC40.” (1)

Then, yet again, to pad that government wallet, those who drive an 11 year old car are being threatened with a per mile tax on top of all the other Car taxes that carries an individual to and from work.  That car you drive should have a Bullseye on it!
