Are you straddling that fence, finally? Grass getting a bit brown these days with the hot summer temps on the left side of it!


Don't think I have changed any position. AFAIK, the only mechanism to force Communism to live up to ideals is violent revolution.
But if we look at history of this country, late 19th/early 20th century, capitalism concentrating wealth and ownership of production concentrated in few hands just like what we see under corrupted communism. Also if we look at the middle of 20th century, the strength of unions expanded a middle class, spread wealth to a large number of people. Then US governments started supporting people whos money works for them over people that worked for money.
I have always thought Capitalism is better than Communism because capitalism can be constrained by unions, if government allows

How in the world did a thread about an EV truck test end up in a debate about communism vs capitalism?

Here's a F150 Lightning that towed a ~1k pound pop up camper 18.5 miles. At the start of the trip the battery capacity was at 50% and after 18.5 miles traveled the battery capacity dropped to 38%.

Summary: Towing a 1k pounds pop up camper which had very little air drag 18.5 miles and consumed 18% battery capacity.

Conclusion: Epic Fail

Amazing yes !?


Perhaps you should immigrate there. Completely eliminated poverty LOL. That tells me you've never been there. Keep believing Utube D.B.'s LOL.

YT is american site,I think we can trust it.

Plus I can give you names of hundreds of foreigners living in China to verify anything.

Unfortunately YT also allows lots o anti china propaganda in some faint hope it will change Chinas future.It wont

I make a bet here go to YT and search China homeless,you wont find any even w all anti ccp rhetoric.

Bc China builds enough afordable housing for everyone.

Come to think of it try to find homeless chinese in any US or Canada city.
Never will. Do you know why

LOL.......why?
China considers anyone making the equivalent of $2.30 US per day as not being in poverty. At that rate the average Chinese Joe could afford an F150 lightning in Platinum trim if he saves all his income for 39000 years.

From reading your post, it is quite apparent that you did not get much out of your education experience.

If you had, you would likely have different opinions. For sure, you would be able to spell when expressing them.[emoticon]

While I genuinely like the idea of battery powered vehicles, they just don't work for much of the driving we do these days. Case in point, we headed from Colorado Springs to eastern Oregon last week and put down 1040 miles in 17 hours. No need to stop for a hotel but 17 hours in one shot is about our limit when traveling with kids. We did the same trip in reverse last night. There is no way we could have done that same trip in an EV in a single shot. The most painful part was the multiple $200 fill ups.
