One of the greatest psychological gyps ever devised by the brigands who constitute what is styled “the government” (which is itself the ultimate psych given that “the government” is exactly that, i.e., a band of brigands who have managed to make it lawful to do what ordinary brigands are punished for doing) is what’s styled “withholding.”
By which is meant the pre-taking of even more of your money than the government-brigands say is “owed.”
And the sheep bleat joyfully when they receive what was previously theirs – sans the cost of not being able to use it for the prior year as well as the loss of 8-12 percent of its buying power, courtesy of the currency devaluation engineed by the brigand-government that is innocuously styled “inflation” – as if to imply a natural force of some kind, like a weather front.
Having accepted such a stupendous gypping, the sheep are primed for further gypping, as in the case of this EeeeeeVeeee business. Which proposes to increase the cost of owning a car and make it far less convenient.
Such a deal!
But there’s another gyp coming that combines withholding and EeeeeeeeVeeeeeees. Instead of – in addition to – the “withholding” of your money, the brigand-government plans to “withhold” your power, too.
The Art of the Gyp begins by convincing people that they must get rid of their car or truck that burns hydrocarbon fuels internally for one that burns hydorcarbon fuels externally – at the power plant, where hydrocarbon fuels are burned to create the electricity that powers the EeeeeeeeVeeeee.
They must do so, they are told, because if they do not do it, the 0.04 percent of the Earth’s atmosphere that is carbon dioxide might increase by a fraction of that fraction and cause the “climate” to “change” in a “catastrophic” way.
The gyp poceeds by not telling them that they won’t be able to able to “fast” charge their EeeeeeVeeee at home. Because few, if any, homes are wired to deal with 400-800 volt “fast” charging loads – for which you need commericial-grade wiring and infrastructure. They are not told they will therefore have to “fast” charge somewhere else that isn’t at home – and wait there – or wait even longer, at home (where they can trickle-charge their EeeeeeVeeee in “only” a few hours).
The gyppers tell them they will never have to pay for gas again . . . in order to avoid any discussion of how much they’ll be paying for the EeeeeeVeeeeee, instead. And its inherently short-lived battery, which will cost them more than the value of the EeeeeeVeeee, itself, when it can no longer hold a charge.
But these are merely the preliminary gyps.
The ultimate gyp will take the form of Vehicle to Grid Technology. The using of EeeeeeeeVeeeeeees as batteries . . . the power stored therein to be “withheld” by the government-brigands as they like. Plug your EeeeeeeeeeVeeeeee in at night and wake up in the morning to an empty battery – all the electricity having been “withheld” by the government-brigands, who control the power your EeeeeeeeeeeVeeeee was plugged in to.
Just sign here!
What they weren’t told was that part of the deal – the brigand-government subsidized home solar system – is that their system must be connected to the big system, i.e., the grid. And that the gyppers in control of the grid – who are the same gyppers behind the EeeeeeeVeeee gyp – could (and do) withhold the power stored in the gypp’d person’s batteries, which he was led to believe was his power – in the same way people erroneously believe it’s their money, having paid for it with their labor.
“Green” energy, you see, is largely dependent upon sunshine. It is produced during the day – but much of the draw is at night – when there is no sunshine to replace what is drawn. Ordinarily, more hydrocarbon fuels would be burned to create more power and there would be no problem.
The gyppers’ solution is to take back what you already banked – by draining the power stored in your EeeeeeeeeeVeeeeeee’s battery pack, whenever they need it. The gyppers might deign to give it back at some point in the future. Sans, of course, any refund for the lost opportunity cost of not being able to go where you needed to go because your EeeeeeeeeVeeee you thought was full turned out to be empty.
And just like the older form of withholding, there’s nothing you’ll be able to do about it other than be grateful for what you get back – whenever they deign to give it back.
For which the sheep will probably bleat in gratitude, as they do when they get a “refund” at the end of every tax year.
