They tax everything else, so why not time?
And that’s just what they’re in the process of doing, via what they style “electrification.” This (forced) “transition” to what isn’t “clean” energy and won’t salve the “climate crisis,” because there isn’t one. How could there be one, given that plus or minus a fraction of 0.04 percent – that being the percent of the Earth’s air that is C02 – isn’t going to “change” much of anything. Believing that it will being akin to believing that adding another grain or two of salt to a supper being cooked for 20 people is going to make it taste saltier.
But the Time Tax that will be imposed in the name of preventing this “change” by “transitioning” to what isn’t “clean” energy is very real, unlike the jiggered-with computer models and other misinformation-hysterics used to foment fear over the “climate crisis.” Which is fundamentally – psychologically – the same thing as the “pandemic” and before that “crisis,” the one fomented over “Islamo-fascism,” ad infinitum.
And the EeeeeeeeeVeeeee is their vehicle for it.
Everyone will pay this tax, too – not merely (and deservedly) the fools who did not practice due diligence as regards what owning an EeeeeeeeeVeeeeee will cost them – in terms of money. Many of these latter are also the same fools who did not practice due diligence when told they must wear a “mask” and then take a “vaccine” in order to “stop the spread.” Just as it is easier to hornswagggle a mark who has already bought a timeshare into buying another one.
The Time Tax will, of course, affect them the most – at first – for they are the only ones who will be paying it, at first. They are the ones who will be spending time thinking about recharging . . . all the time. They are the ones whose trips will always be longer, because of all the time they’ll be spending recharging. They will be “taxed” every time they want to go somewhere beyond the range of their EeeeeeeVeeeee – and on the way back from there, too.
In the form of having to wait for that.
They will pay the tax at the “fast” charger, which they must spend time driving to – and from. Plus the Time Tax of having to wait at the “fast” charger while their EeeeeeVeeeee charges. And perhaps have to wait for the driver of the EeeeeeeeVeeeeee who got their ahead of you to finish “fast” charging his.
Oners of Eeeeeeeveeees wil also pay the Time Tax more often in the winter – and the summer – as they’be forced to wait more often because their EeeeeeeVeeeee will need to be recharged sooner.
But all of us are going to pay the Time Tax, too. Or so that is the “plan” – according to those who are systematically banning alternatives to EeeeeeeVeeeeeees. Once it becomes impossible to buy a new car that isn’t an EeeeeeeeVeeeee it will be as hard to avoid paying the Time Tax as it is all-but-impossble to avoid property and income taxes.
The Time Tax – like all taxes – will wax rather than wane, as it is the nature of theft to wax rather than wane when it is encouraged and legitimized rather than scorned and punished. As the alternatives to EeeeeeeeVeeeeeees dwindle, as more and more EeeeeeeeeVeeeeeees are plugged in, there will be less and less “clean” energy available to power them – and everything else. This will lead to a winnowing of supply, which will take the form of an additional and this time general Time Tax, applied in the form of power outages and the wait for the power to come back on.
And it it is probable – to the extent of near-certain – that as more EeeeeeeVeeeeeees suckle at “fast” chargers, the less high-voltage power there will be to “fast” charge there. The good news is that most EeeeeeeeVeeees have elaborate in-car entertanment systems, such as the ability to live-stream Netflix movies and such through the huge LCD touchscreen that serves as the EeeeeeeeeVeeeeeee’s control interface.
The bad news is that you can’t stream anything – much less keep the heat (or AC) running if there’s no power in your EeeeeeeeeVeeeeeeee’s battery pack to run them. And there probably isn’t, if you’re paying your Time Tax waiting for a charge-up at a “fast” charger. If the line is too long – and so is the wait – too bad. You can’t just cut out of line and try again another time. An EeeeeeeeVeeeee with a drained battery in need of a charge doesn’t give you the option of going home. And even if you could make it there on whatever you have left, you’ll be paying – again – as you plug-in to wait there for the next several hours, which is how long it takes to instill even a partial trickle-charge on household power.
Assuming, of course, that the power is still on.
