Since 2009 the United States federal government has created an unlevel playing field in the car industry by providing a significant tax break to those who purchased an electric car. This in spite of the fact almost 50% of the subsidy money goes to California. The subsidy was put in place to help put more supposedly environmentally friendly cars out on America’s roads. Unfortunately this meant the government was picking winners and loser –a decidedly anti-capitalist strategy. The great news however, is that President Trump made it clear earlier this year he was opposed to these subsidies. With President Trump’s support and the help of groups like the American Energy Alliance, when the 2020 federal budget was passed, this subsidy was not extended.

Is this peak vegan? Science professor wants you to try ‘tasty’ larvae sausages and locust ice cream
For decades there has been a push to eliminate meat from our diet. First it was the non-stop message meat is bad for your health (Hummm, weren’t coffee and butter supposed to be bad-but now they are not?). Then the sustainablists backed by the United Nations argued meat was bad for the environment. Of course, to believe meat is bad for the environment you have to believe Global Warming is occurring, that carbon dioxide and methane are the culprits, and that doing all of this hocus-pocus to reduce man’s production of greenhouse gases will really make a difference-especially since the largest producer of greenhouse gases, China, is doing nothing to control their production.
If you buy all of these assumptions, what the heck, feel free to eat all the maggots you want-as long as you do not force them on the rest of us! Besides, it just leaves more meat for the meat lovers! To learn more about the fast-growing trend to ditch meat and embrace insects click on this link.
