First electric Vehicles

Should we just give up on Electric Vehicles?
Jaguar and Audi electric car recall!
Heck No!
Did we just give up on 
Steam, gasoline or diesel driven vehicles?
Heck No!

Horseless carriage. In 1803

Ford Quadricycle In 1896
The Ford Motor Company. In October 1908, the Model T
Diesel engines began to be used in automobiles in the 1930s. Mainly used for commercial applications early on, they did not gain popularity for passenger travel until their development in Europe in the 1960s
So, 
what’s the problem with 
‘Electric driven vehicles’?
‘The Gas and Oil companies,’ 
big fat paychecks 
to our politicians that’s what!
Take their fingers out of the dam, 
so to speak, 
and 
we will be swamped with
inexpensive economical electric vehicles.
The first successful electric car 
made its debut around the 1800’s
It’s hard to pinpoint the invention of the electric car to one inventor or country.
Instead it was a series of breakthroughs -- from the battery to the electric motor -- in the 1800s that led to the first electric vehicle on the road.
In the early part of the century, innovators in Hungary, the Netherlands and the United States -- including a blacksmith from Vermont -- began toying with the concept of a battery-powered vehicle and created some of the first small-scale electric cars.

Normandy landings

Normandy landings
Because of this new world we are now living in, this should be remembered?
First
I am so proud of the brave men and women of those two wars
(WW-1 &WW-2) and every war for freedom ever.
Please remember, many of my ancestors 
served in both wars, plus in Korea.
I do wish to add if you will?
Second
Let’s remind the Russian Government to not forget that if not for D Day, the Russian people would be speaking German!
Third
If not for the defeat of the Japanese, the Chinese people would be speaking
(名古屋弁, Nagoya-ben and (尾張弁 Owari-ben) the Japan language!
Also
As a sailor I remember all of my brothers 
in all of those ships of D Day and landing crafts, 
many that did not even make it to the beaches.
AND
Forth
Last but by no means least,
The sacrifice of the United Kingdom 
and the 
French Residence 
through-out the late 1930's and early 1940's!
World War One and World War Two 
were both World Wars for Peace and Freedom 
from 
(Tyranny)!

Where is your President?


A president of the United States of America, 
especially one that has never server this country, 
should, at the very least, 
spend some if not all of a Memorial Day Weekend, 
visiting Military Cemeteries!
Not trump, 
he is visiting the country 
that killed thousands of our citizens that did serve this country!

Memorial Day 2019
This house has been flying ‘Timothy’ since yesterday.
It has been a number of years since we were showing this 
POW-WOW/MIA FLAG, 
because of, what to me seemed to be a lack of concern for our 
‘Missing in Action as of late!
My long time followers might remember my 
‘Shipmate’ turns ‘Army’, Boatswain mate 2nd class. Timmy?

No photos out of respect to Tim still lost somewhere?

Who are trumps idols?


President Putin of Russia


Kim Jong-un Leader of North Korea, 

President Xi Jinping of China.

Do you really believe that trump cares for you?
 Guess want people?

What the “Christian trump followers”

 the “Republican Senate “
and the

 “Older White Republican Women” 
do not understand is, 
once ‘monarch-trump’ obtains his throne,
 you will all be dumped in his cesspool Swamp, 
along with everyone that opposed his climb to power!
Let’s check out trump from diapers to today, 
shall we?
trump put up little of his own money, shifted personal debts to the casinos and collected millions of dollars in salary, bonuses and other payments.
The burden of his failures fell on investors and others who had bet on his business acumen.
3 days ago ·
They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade. In fact, year after year, trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, 
The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the I.R.S. compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners.
Looks like the North Korean Government, like the Chinese government, the Russian and the Venezuelan government, would not give trump a free hotel in their country?
Washington (CNN)
The United States has seized a North Korean cargo ship, alleging sanctions violations by the country, the Justice Department said Thursday.

Our aircraft carrier has been around for 19 conflicts

The American aircraft carrier has been around for 
at least 19 of our conflicts, 
isn’t it time to retire them to pasture?
The first aircraft carrier built (1925) 
from the keel up as an aircraft carrier 
for the U.S. navy was
the U.S.S. Saratoga.
If anyone sinks our carriers.

President Obama’s (Hope & Change Presidency)


Mitch McConnell's job was to make it
NOT HAPPEN!
His Top Priority to Limit Barack Obama to One Term
Superficial Speaker of the House Paul Ryan!
became filthy rich during this time on your tax money!

Vice President Joe Biden worked for eight years
helping 
President Barrack Obama on 
positive change 
from our past disaster after!
President Bill Clinton.
And before that 
President Jimmy Carter, 
who by the way is alive 
at 95 and
working for you and your country

A president without the help of enough 
'good people in congress' 
can do very little 
for you and the country!
Remember;
According to the United States of America constitution
Our government 
was to be our 
three equel branches 
of 
Governing people!

Hope that this is not too hard for so many in today's government to read?
Because of this
“Crooked Government”
this country is stuck with
(crooked trump), 
crooked senate 
and a 
stacked crooked supreme court!
Let’s not take a chance with un-tried youth that will be up against so many crooked people in our government and in other countries?
Remember;
The Republican party tried this with 
the (Tea Party),
and look at how that worked for the country?
We need someone that can work with
‘We the People to rid this country of corruption'!
He 
(Joe Biden), 
is not the best 
but he will do 
unless we elect 
Madam President Hillary R. Clinton!

The news media must have Alzheimer's?

Least we forget?
The news media is a collection of
'mpalsi chichiz media'
(Nut cases),
Or
They all must have Alzheimer's????
Not one of them remembers the numbers of times
trump entertained a communist!!!!
He did so behind closed doors,
(No media, at least no media from this country), 

In places like his 'trump towers' in New York, 

His Florida home, Mar-a-Largo in Florida 

And 

Our Whitehouse in our Washington!!!!

Our navy wants to scrap a 25 year old ‘Super Aircraft Carrier’!

Our navy wants to scrap 
a 25 year old ‘Super Aircraft Carrier’!
This congress does not want to.
Trump wants to build even more 
‘Super Aircraft Carrier’!
I say, do not scrap, 
decommission and/or sell 
all 11 we now have!
And this is why.

One new nuclear power ballistic-missile submarines can wipe out all 11 of our carriers and we still have the best, and still be able to completely destroy the country of China if necessary!
And 
this country has 13 more nuclear power ballistic-missile submarines to back it up!
The news media is a collection of 'mpalsi chichiz media' (Nut case), and all must have Alzheimer's
Not one of them remember the every time trump entertained a communist, he did so behind closed doors, (no media from this country), in places like his town house, his Florida home and our Whitehouse!
Bottom-line, 
many of our surface ships are now floating grave yards with millions of my shipmates lives.
Ballistic-missile submarines or “boomers” in U.S. Navy parlance.
The fourteen Ohio-class ballistic-missile submarines, which carry upwards of half of the United States’ nuclear arsenal onboard, the Ohio-class boats may be the most destructive weapon system created by humankind.
Each of the 170-meter-long vessels can carry twenty-four Trident II submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBMs) which can be fired from underwater to strike at targets more than seven thousand miles away depending on the load, a Trident II reenters the atmosphere at speeds of up to Mach 24, 
it splits into up to eight independent reentry vehicles, each with a 100- or 475-kiloton nuclear warhead
In short, 
a full salvo from an Ohio-class submarine—which can be launched in less than one minute—could unleash up to 192 nuclear warheads to wipe twenty-four cities off the map
This is a nightmarish weapon of the apocalypse.

University of Texas System

Welcome to the visitor from University of Texas System
In

Austin, Texas
To
Aquai/Aquine
One can only hope you stayed long enough 
to get down to the meat of the post?
Not sure how things are going with the ‘Fast Food Restaurants’ in your state however;
In Florida it is and has been a disaster for years!
As I stated in that post, as a ‘Union Man’ I believe one should be paid well plus benefits that fit the job.
As a frequent customer of fast food restaurant in Florida, one should expect to be treated well and get what you paid for?
After all, 
one would think that any restaurant 
needs return customers 
as well as satisfied customers?

“Fast Food Restaurant minimum wage”?



If a restaurant, any restaurant, 
would pay and care for 
real good employees, 
their service, and their food.

Customers 
would always outgrow
 their competition 
and this would mean 
more money in the pocket.

Fast food like Wal-Mart is too big for their britches.


AS a proud, now retired
‘Union Steward,’ 
I believer in 
the workers of my country 
and Mother Earth for that matter.

While we are on this subject, pay should never be by ‘Gender’!

It must not be because you are 
white, black, red, brown, yellow, or (lgbtq).
Not because of your ancestors or the country they are from.
It is, or should be,
 ‘how well you do the job’!

This last one 
is the subject of today’s posting!

When anyone around my age and of a union, we are talking $15 minimum plus ‘real benefits’!

Being paid for your work 
must be by your 
qualifications, knowledge, experience, neatness 
and 
not because of your 
color or lack thereof!

Unfortunately my friends, 
this is only the beginning of this story!

When was the last time you pulled up to a window of a
“Fast Food Restaurant”?

That person 
as you pull up 
and 
the rest of the employees 
are screaming for $15 per hour, 
some even want more.


Because we only have one car 
and 
Florida is now a ‘Gun Shine State,’

And
We always take our dogs along for the ride; 
we like to treat ourselves to a lunch out,
 the dogs food is always with us.
Our trips in Florida turns out to be
a challenge just to get your order, 
let alone getting it right the first time 
and
 if you take too long 
someone behind you is on the horn!

As a 
‘Working Forman’ for 25 of my 40 years, 
not only would I not pay some of them $15.

I would try to retrain or I would fire them!

Particle Pollution blamed for more than 107,000 deaths

Particle Pollution blamed for more than 
107,000 deaths in the United States in 2011!
Costing $866 Billion Dollars!
Air Pollution Linked to More Than 107,000 
Premature Deaths in U.S. in 2011: Study
Posted 12:22 PM, April 8, 2019, by CNN Wire
Air pollution is deadly: 
A new study links exposure to it to more than 107,000 premature deaths in the United States in 2011.
It isn’t just killing us; 
it cost the country $866 billion, 
more than double the value of all the economic activity in a country like Ireland, 
according to the study, published Monday 
Particulate matter, or particle pollution,
is the mix of solid and liquid droplets floating in the air, 
It can come in the form of dirt, dust, soot or smoke. 
Particulate pollution comes from 
coal- and natural gas-fired plants. Cars, agriculture, unpaved roads, construction sites 
and 
wildfires can also create it.
This study focused on the harm caused by the tiniest particulate matter, 
PM2.5
It’s so tiny –1/20th of a width of a human hair — that you cannot see it, 
and 
it can travel past your body’s 
Instead of being breathed out, 
it can get stuck in your lungs 
or 
go into your bloodstream. 
The particles cause irritation and inflammation 
and 
can lead to respiratory problems. 
Long-term exposure can cause cancer, stroke and heart attack.
Particulate pollution in the air we breathe 
kills hundreds of thousands a year, study finds

America needs to, ‘Obey our own law from 1941’!

America, ‘Obey your own law from 1941’!
I like what it is that Representative now running to be our president, 
Tim Ryan (D-OH), is promising to do however; 
he needs a better group of people checking history!
He was right to pin outsourcing 
on then president some 20 years ago.
However;
The Berry Amendment two days before my birthday 
shows that this country has been outsourcing for over 78 years!
Wouldn’t it be great if congress 

would refine and obey their own
‘Congress Laws’?
Under a 1941 law, most of the military’s uniform items 
must be made in the U.S.A. 

Change this to ‘All of the military’s uniforms’!
The Berry Amendment
Directs the Defense Department to give preference in procurement to domestically produced or manufactured products, including clothing and fabrics. The idea is to create American jobs and protect the supply chain in times of conflict.
“Basically they didn’t want things to be outsourced,” 
Carter said. 
“They didn’t want people to be in the American military wearing something made in China.”
But for decades, sneakers were exempt from that rule. Instead, recruits were given about $90 to buy shoes themselves. 
The Pentagon argued U.S. made shoes were too costly, too limited, and not durable enough to meet the military’s needs.
Around 98 percent of shoes are imported from other countries, 
where labor and manufacturing costs are lower. 
The military postponed buying American-made sneakers,
 claiming a lack of availability.

How Elections Could Significantly Change

Here's How Elections Could Significantly Change In CT
A committee passed a slew of election-related bills, 
including one to require 
presidential candidates to release tax returns.
By Rich Scinto, Patch Staff | Apr 2, 2019 12:40 pm ET
It’s about time?
This is only about 250 (243), years in waiting!
Read on if you will?
HARTFORD, CT
The Government Administration and Elections Committee approved a number of bills that could lead to major changes in how Connecticut residents vote. The bills now head to the General Assembly for another vote.
Disclosure of Presidential and Gubernatorial Candidate Federal Taxes
Another bill would require presidential and gubernatorial candidates to publicly disclose at least two years worth of tax returns in order to appear on the ballot. Several other states are pushing for similar measures, but there is debate whether it would stand up to a court challenge. President Donald Trump didn't release his tax returns, which bucked a decades-long trend among major party candidates. Last week a committee approved a bill that could lead to early in-person voting via a constitutional amendment. The proposal still has a long way to go as it requires either a 75% majority in both the State House and Senate or to pass by a majority two years in a row in both houses before appearing as a question on the ballot.
Three states have all-mail voting and nearly 40 have some form of early voting, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
Connecticut voters can either vote in-person on Election Day or apply and mail-in absentee ballot. The rules regarding who qualifies for an absentee ballot are strict. The process currently requires an application which is sent to the local Town Clerk who then sends a ballot before an election, primary or referendum. That ballot then has to be filled out and either mailed back or dropped off in-person before the Election Day deadline.
A number of bills would increase Election Day voter registration across the state. Some big cities have run into issues with low staffing levels coupled with a mass of last-minute registrants over the past few election cycles. Some registrants waited in line for four hours to register in New Haven last election.
Under current law, voters must be registered by 8 p.m. Election Day in order to cast a ballot. Those stuck in registration line when the clock strikes eight can't vote. A bill proposed by Gov. Ned Lamont and approved by a committee would also allow those in line for Election-Day registration to vote after 8 p.m.
One bill would allow additional Election Day registration locations in towns and require that registrars of voters advise the Secretary of State office on the expected staffing levels. The bill passed unanimously out of committee.
