Solar Power is a Terrorist Weapon.
18 Jan 2002
The wonders of "free trade", the warfare "economy" & fractional-reserve banking....
Like the innovations of Buckminster Fuller (he built a car in 1933 that was better than any available today), like the PRACTICAL & EFFICIENT renewable-energy and electric-vehicle enterprises that I and countless others have attempted to mass-produce - only to be blocked, crushed or dissolved by "our" monopolistic, usurious, fractional-reserve banking system (THE ULTIMATE CORPORATE-GOVERNMENT SCAM) that rewards waste and punishes efficiency....

Well, I'll tell you more details about my personal experiences with banksters, politicians and vulture capitalists later.

(Hunter Lovin$ & Associates , you've become supreme hypocrites, selling our planet to the CFR & Associates just to boost your meager egos - like the cowardly "progressives" littering Boston and other guilty, affluent "liberal" cities.)

Meanwhile, imagine yet another warehouse of genuine REAL GOODS getting dumped in the garbage because of the so-called "free trade economy".

ECONOMY is the opposite of WASTE. So why does the Fed WASTE our ECONOMY? Either they're very dumb humans or very clever monsters.

It wouldn't suprise me if the cowardly terrorists running "our" government pass yet another totalitarian "law" that directly (rather than indirectly) "outlaws" solar energy. Sounds funny today. Might be real tommorrow.

And next? How about outlawing oxygen? Like most beneficial gifts of nature, oxygen already is a "controlled substance" according to "our" government! (Do you ever remember voting for that one? Neither do I.)

Lawyer/liars and banksters, your time has come to be "retired" from Earth. Shakespeare was right. And so was Robin Hood.

Oil your guns, folks. Cause it's time for a really good spring cleaning....

Paradigm Lost: Electric Cars Crushed by Makers

As major auto makers tout their new products and dealers push luxury car and SUV sales to "keep America rolling", General Motors has quietly begun mothballing its EV1 electric cars as they come off lease.

Some of the 200 electric vehicles (EVs) now sitting on a lot in Van Nuys are new but were never offered to consumers.

GM and Honda quit making their zero-emission EVs years ago,
disappointing thousands on waiting lists in the limited test marketing area.

Hundreds of these excellent cars are still in the hands of
enthusiastic lessees, but the automakers allege a `lack of demand'.

The GM EV1 and Honda EV+ burn no petroleum and are cheaper to drive than internal combustion cars; automakers have decided to bury EVs now, before Americans learn that good zero-emission cars have been built. 93% of Americans recently polled support clean-air transportation technology.

A decade ago, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) mandated the production of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) by automakers selling in that state. Only electric cars qualify as ZEVs. Honda produced the electric EV+ four-passenger sedan; GM produced the sporty EV1 two-seater.

Both cars were only available in Southern California and Arizona; promotion was paltry and only a few thousand EVs were produced.

Most were placed with utility company fleets, so that even in Los Angeles EV1s arouse curiosity. And envy at their pickup (0-30 MPH in 3 sec.).

GM's EV1s were available to a few drivers for three-year lease (no lease-end option to buy). A thousand consumers on the EV1 waiting list were disappointed by the halt of production in 1998; GM cited 'lack of demand' as their reason for axing the EV1. Most Americans never even learned that it existed.

Honda halted EV+ production in early 1998.

Both the EV+ and the EV1 were essentially hand-built; mass-production EVs would cost barely more than gas burners. EVs cost less than a nickel a mile to drive, half the cost of gas-powered cars. EVs have very few moving parts to wear out. [OH NO! THAT'S BAD FOR THE "ECONOMY". WE WANT MORE "JOBS"!]

The Gen II EV1 goes 100 miles per charge. Two hours' charging replaces 80% of full range.

Lithium-polymer batteries with up to twice the charge per weight are now being manufactured which push range over 200 miles (four times the US daily drive).

GM's EV1 production was 1500 total. General Motors is now suing the CARB in an attempt to escape requirements that it provide more EVs in California and also is fighting Northeast states' efforts to mandate sales of ZEVs.

Oil and auto corporations have spent $10,000,000 on anti-EV PR in the last decade, ensuring American ignorance. Planted articles disinform the reading public.

Highway-capable EVs are being suppressed; major automakers have enforced US drivers' continued dependence on petroleum. EV World and Electric Times provide online information on EVs. Cleaner air and cost-efficient operation give EVs the edge in a free marketplace.

Somebody tell General Motors.


In case you've forgotten, GM and Rockefeller Oil & Banking (supporters of all professional "progressive" organizations) are the wonderful entities that dismantled America's rail system while everyone was distracted with the last glorious and profitable World War.

And just as today, the Anglo-American banksters financed both sides of that holocaust, too.

Invest in destruction: and are excellent choices. Miraculously "profitable".

War on terrorism? Yeah. I'm all for it. Let's start with the World Bank and the Republicrats.

Humanity has the option to succeed....
