It is time to ban cars

Or at the very least, assault taxis.

They can just put the taxi on display in the museum.

>Low tech attacks using stolen and hired vehicles to randomly rammed into crowds, have been increasingly used by terrorists unable to get hold of guns and explosives.

>It is 'nigh on impossible' for security services to monitor and stop potential terrorists planning such murders and the only way to prevent them is by using barriers to protect pedestrians, according to one expert.

I suppose a Wall could be considered a barrier to protect pedestrians, by some measure.

But how unsurprising that the victims were all congregated in a no-car zone.

There is really NO way the typical liberal/leftist can keep ignoring these trends without being brainwashed (or 'turned out' as I like to call it).

Racial profiling ist verboted, but 'trend monitoring' sounds less confrontational.

But what the Obama/Soros racketeers have done to counter any reality-acknowledgment is come up with 'systemic oppression' or 'unconscious bias'.

Further, where in a sane world these race hustlers would be impoverished in the free market of ideas, they are riding the gravy train of dark money, gov't aa programs, tax theft etc.

To get back to my main point: we can't name the problem, so we have two choices: join the left, or maintain our argument. The first option is nihilism.

I used to be pro car, but I have seen the light after this latest incident. i realize how wrong I was. I'm holding a press conference later today where cameras will be on hand to see me voluntarily surrender my car to the local sheriff for proper disposal. I urge others to do the same. Failure to do so makes you pro car murder, and means I'm better than you.

In all fairness, he didn't actually kill anyone. The one good thing about sand-niggers is that most of them lack enough agency to steal something with decent weight and inertia.

Anyway, y'all think car and truck attacks are bad? Wait until one of them decides to pull a Marvin Heemeyer with a stolen bucket loader.

Early radio reports here in the UK described the driver as 'black'.

If this turns out to be a case of jihadist parking disorder then there's a small upside. The MSM may be giving up on trying to pretend that race and religion aren't factors in this.

Blogger Alec Rawls October 07, 2017 12:10 PM  

All we are asking for is reasonable car-control. It is a simple fact that nobody NEEDS a hybrid car, and this incident shows how extremely dangerous they can be.

Anyone who objects to the banning of hybrid cars should be executed by firing squad (AFTER Nancy Sinatra’s boots have walked all over them).

Great Britain is surrounded by a natural moat. It would be a simple matter to just round up all wogs and put them on the other side of the moat, preferably where they came from. Problem solved. Brits had no problem banning guns. Why won't the ban wogs? Why does the Queen not stand up and insist that her people be protected?

We need legislation aimed at holding vehicle manufacturers liable for the costs of the mayhem their products cause.
Lawmakers have the power to make it possible for individuals, cities and states to sue vehicle manufacturers and hold them liable for injuries or deaths caused by their products.

and they are simply going to treat this guy like a criminal. lock him in a box for 5 years so he can perfect his craft of murder, and then cut him loose.

The way you deal with Jihadis... The ONLY way you deal with Jihadis, is to cut down their family/tribe. ALL of them, to set an example for the rest. If you leave any of them alive, you are seeding a new generation with a feud.

Reprisals work perfectly on tribals, and they are the ONLY thing that works. You either use what works or you keep getting your people murdered.

These people were asking for it, what with their silly belief that they are still living in a high-trust society:

"WHY WERE PAVEMENTS AND BOLLARDS REMOVED FROM EXHIBITION ROAD?
Exhibition Road was re-opened in 2012 with all barriers removed. The aim was to make cars and people co-exist harmoniously – without the need for hectoring signs and protective steel barriers.
It is visited by millions of people from around Britain and the world but doesn't even have kerbs or pavements.
The idea underlining the project was that when nannying rules and orders - in the form of countless signs, traffic signals and barriers - are removed, motorists take more personal responsibility for their own actions and drive more attentively, making more eye contact with pedestrians."

The free advice given by the latter-day Baalam's ass - a Nigerian Musloid who was even in Londonistan - should be followed ruthlessly:

Remove your governments. They are not for you.

Anyone who thinks the overlords running the show are going to allow the zeks and proles to vote their way out of the gulag is delusional, much like the ghost-dancers here in Kwa-Bananaland who like to moan and drone about 'muh constitootshun'.

Also: It makes absolutely NO SENSE for Paddock having all those weapons in his room. None whatsoever. Maybe 2, maybe 3, in case of weapons failure. Not 23 weapons, or whatever the official count is now. Why would he take the chance in transporting all those weapons into his room over a few days, if all he was going to do was be a “Lone Wolf” gun-man, shooting from the 32nd floor, into the crowded concert grounds?

"Great Britain is surrounded by a natural moat. It would be a simple matter to just round up all wogs and put them on the other side of the moat, preferably where they came from. Problem solved."


Then they undermined the moat, so that people could drive cars directly from London to Paris without the use of a ferry or other watercraft.... seemingly neglecting the fact this also makes it possible for invaders to do the reverse.... without the use of landing craft.

An electric car requires 75 amp service to recharge. Damned near all homes have 100 amp service.

You will have to upgrade your home to 200 amp service to recharge at home. A typical block can only handle two or three homes with 200 amp service.

So where is California going to come up with the money to rewire every city in the state?

Hogwash.  The standard J1772 charger tops out at 30 amps.  I've been driving on electric power for 4.5 years using just a 12-amp "convenience cord" at home.

They're not going to need that for electric cars.  They're going to need it for their crazy demand for "renewable" (ruinable) energy.  With capacity factors in the 30% range and downward, moving the same amount of energy takes a lot more peak capacity.
