    Fiat Chrysler is facing the same EPA problems as Volkswagen for cheating on the diesel engine emission tests. But, with Trump’s promise to eliminate the EPA, both automakers should be free to continue polluting.

    It is certain that conservatives do not care about the environment, most right-wingers have made it clear that they are content to live in a sewer if it means getting rid of environmental regulations. After all, conservatives are concerned more with Big Business’ ability to increase profits than the world they leave to their children and grandchildren.

    Yes, the righties will claim government regulations hurt creation of jobs, but the jobs they expect Trump to bring back from Asia to the U.S. are gone for good. The cheap labor in third world countries is much more attractive to the fat cats than anything the over-paid American workers have to offer, regulations or not.

    Fiat Chrysler accused of cheating emissions tests, could face massive fine and investigation

    In their many posts on these message boards and in their everyday lives, conservatives have the bad habit of accusing others for creating all that is bad in their lives.

    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame the poor.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame minorities.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame Social Security and Medicare recipients, namely the disabled and the elderly.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame women demanding their rights.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame non-Christians.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame liberals.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame unions.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame government regulations.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame government safety net programs.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame those dependent on government safety net programs.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame government agencies.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame undocumented workers.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame the working poor and their demand for a liveable wage.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame Democrats.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame over-paid government workers.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives blame the “liberal media”.
    For creating all that is bad in their lives, conservatives have a very long list of those they blame, and not all are written here.

    However, if conservatives want to see who is truly to blame for the all bad they believe intrudes into their lives, they need only be alone in a room and look into a mirror.

    Here's a question, BertramN. If you took your car to get your smog certificate and it didn't pass, and the tech offered to pass it for an extra $50 although it didn't meet the standard, would you say no, and spend another $700 to fix the problem or pay the tech $50 to pass it?

    Diesel engines used to get fantastic mileage, far better than gasoline engines. Then dumb liberals slapped ridiculous emission systems onto diesel engines that cost thousands of dollars and lowered the mileage 25% resulting in burning 25% more fossil fuels. :bang3: That's why the manufacturers are cheating, to get around liberal stupidity.

    Another example of German auto technology being ahead of the rest.

    The internal combustion engine is such an antique, so inefficient, so ridiculous today that it is insanity to continue with it. So, of course, we will.

    We should switch to electric cars that run on batteries...that are so toxic and nasty to manufacture they have to be manufactured in 3rd world countries with no pollution laws. That way green liberals can brag about how green their electric cars are. /sarcasm
