I like Michael Avenatti. If he runs I will give him a nice contribution.

So I am now supporting Pete Buttigieg -- from sleazeball to smart inspirational candidate.

It's good to have young millennial guy in the running.

My cousin and his wife retired to Laguna woods. They love it there because of all the activities.
He has a Tesla 3. People who live in the community pay $120/yr if they have a golf cart. EV owners pay $240 year for charging. People who don't have stickers are fined $400 if they plug in. Granted, charging is only 110V level 1, so the car is always charging when parked. No garages at Laguna woods -- only covered stalls.
I would say he drives about 15,000 miles a year because they are active with trips to LA and San Diego and daily activities. So $240 per year in "fuel" costs. Too much of a bargain not to take advantage.

The wife does not drive anymore but she always wanted to be driven in an upscale car. Now they have it, not that Tesla 3 is that upscale. They always had "average" cars before.

If you have more than 1 car per household, you can make it work and you can save money. Most people are not reasonable. They want an SUV to maybe escape fires, maybe go off-road, maybe take trips, none of which they do. I know people who rent cars when taking trips because they are afraid to put miles on their cars. It's all emotions, it has nothing to do with practical use which an electric car does fine. That's why manufacturers should make electric cars distinctive, in style and color, so owners get social credit points for driving them to trader Joe's.

But you are willing to force it on others (well because :it works for "you")

I feel like I’m being forced to breathe engine exhaust and deal when engine noise and pay for freeways i don’t need.

There is a reason people whose houses back up to freeways or busy thoroughfares have health problems such as asthma.
