He doubts the coming rules on auto sales are "bans."
But if 95% of the public buys gas-powered engines this year and the new rule only allows 65% in 2026, isn't that a ban on buying the type of car you want?
If the state goal has been met, no gas-powered engine for you.
Sounds like a ban to me.
The argument of the benefits of electric vehicles ignores the infrastructure issue - what good is a car if there's no place to charge?
If you run out of power before your destination?
If governments were serious about a transition to electric cars, they'd be building charge stations at government buildings and rest areas on the interstate where they would be needed.
Selling lots of cars doesn't help if they can't be used as the motoring public has come to expect.

The editorial thinks Governor Youngkin's "Parents Matter" agenda is not supported by the majority.
But he won election in 2021 with that agenda.
“I’m not going to let parents come into schools and actually take books out and make their own decision. … I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
That was the majority maker.
That's how Youngkin's agenda can succeed.
There are more parents than teachers.

We can only speculate on Michael Oher’s motives in turning against the Tuohy family like this. If I had to guess, I’d imagine Oher’s experiencing some financial difficulty in his post-NFL life, and listened to some of his “friends” telling him he had been unfairly exploited. The explanation from the film producer makes that seem unlikely, and this sad chapter in Oher’s life is an unfortunate turn in what had been an inspiring story.

The Supreme Court isn't conservative because it overturned Roe v. Wade
Ron DeSantis isn't conservative because he doesn't allow Disney to push a woke agenda without consequences.
And how can the family friendly support Trump?
The answers are obvious.
Democrats are worse.
Being conservative doesn't mean letting liberal changes be locked into place.
It means returning to the right way before liberals messed things up.
I know it's a hard concept for liberals to understand.
If you don't think current Republicans are following the historic conservative model, being conservative doesn't mean conserving liberal mistakes.

I figured I'd better put something up before July ends in a few hours.
The blog has been around almost 15 years.
There's new things to catch my attention.
The news has gotten boring - when offends you about Donald Trump today?
The links from the past are stale, and many bloggers I enjoyed in 2009 are no longer out there - or sadly departed.
But the best part about being on blogger - I'm not paying to keep the site alive.
I can review my past posts and remember the interactions.
So I'll stick around.
Maybe someone will offer me a lot of money - if it happens to Hunter Biden, it can happen to me.

My favorite column about the Supreme Court's halting the Biden college loan scheme comes from Vox.
It's a lengthy rant about how Congress really intended a program that could waive past college loans.
It follows the path of the legislation and the update done in 2007.
Was the column's thesis correct?
Let's ask the Speaker of the House in 2007 - Nancy Pelosi. Chief Justice John Roberts remembered what she said about the program.
"As then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi explained: ‘People think that the President of the United States has the power for debt forgiveness. He does not,’" Roberts quoted Pelosi’s July 28, 2021, press conference. "‘He can postpone. He can delay. But he does not have that power. That has to be an act of Congress.’"
If only the columnist had checked the opinion before sending the column to be published.

Those who support the decision expect colleges and universities to find ways to cheat.
Opponents accuse the other side of bad faith - they don't really care about Asian students.

The country didn't need to relive Watergate for more months. It was time to move on.
President Trump could have faded away as new blood entered the Republican nomination process for 2024. Instead, the Biden administration and its lust to punish Trump poured gas on the fire.

There's several different Spider creatures from several alternate universes.
Meanwhile, Republicans are dealing with our current Trump universe.
No matter how many alternate universes there are, we're not in the universe where Donald Trump is universally loved and popular.

Legal Insurrection lists the many times Tucker Carlson highlighted causes close to his heart.
He did something few other hosts do – he gave voice to the voiceless, to people suffering under the weight of local left-wing pressure, including several parents and teachers we brought forward on the Legal Insurrection website. While appearing on any of the major Fox News shows was good exposure, appearing on Tucker was a launching pad to national stardom.

Moving on, who gets to interview Tucker first after the departure?
Does Tucker do it himself from his studio?
While he had Daily Caller under development in 2009, there was NTC (Not Tucker Carlson) news. As a supporter of that now defunct website, can I get the first interview?
Maybe The Other McCain, the instigator of that website?

I don't like the man voted into office by the rest of the state.
Someone who might have some life lessons to impart as they conclude their college careers.
You'll be complaining for the rest of your miserable lives.
Let those who like Governor Youngkin enjoy the day.
It's not all about you.
And you can't be pleased anyway.

So the question for cheap supporters - will someone break his strips out of locals and into the general population.
It's $70 per year for locals.
Adams has lots of good stuff.
He'll still be on twitter.
I have years of experience avoiding content behind paywalls.
If it's good, someone will share the important parts in their media.
His stuff is enjoyable, but so much on the internet is enjoyable. You can't read it all, and you can't pay for everything you'd like to support.
It's time to wait and wonder.

Lamar Jackson received the "we like you, but not sure we want to marry you" tag from the Baltimore Ravens.
We'd like you to stay, but if you find a better deal, take it.
Jackson was great in 2019.
Until the playoffs that year.
Too many injuries since then.
Too many other quarterbacks have passed him since.
Younger, cheaper quarterbacks keep flowing out of college.
Good luck, Lamar. But the Ravens can keep more good players if you move on.

There are still newspapers?
Adams is still on Twitter, and Elon Musk appears to support his free speech rights.

He wanted his last post to be one discussing his name - passed down from any uncle who died during World War II.

Washington couldn't give Miami a loss in Super Bowl VII, but it did against the Eagles Monday night.
Pop the champagne again, Dolphins.

It's not about what you did the past.
It's what you've done lately.
Trump's perennial opponents often focus on his past deeds.
It's the future that matters.
Sears sees that. And we'll see a lot more of her as the 2025 gubernatorial campaign gets going.
