Unless you haven’t been paying attention, climate change hysteria fueled by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg along with politicians across the world has been freaking some people out over climate change fears, like if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels we’ll be on fire, or under an ocean… or California will end up in an ice age. One of the biggest things right now is that internal combustion engine vehicles that run on gas and coal is under fire right now for existing.

The problem is, there is no climate crisis caused by vehicle emissions. Climate change has been happening since the dawn of time and continues to change. Droughts, forest fires and temperature changes isn’t something new, nor caused by vehicle emissions. Its nature.

Nature also corrects human mistakes, such as the fires in Australia which was man made and since a lot of animals were killed in the fire and some of the forest has been lost a huge rain bomb occurred. The planet corrected itself by making it rain. Arsonists was to blame for the fires, it didn’t help that the forest was dry enough for the fires to get out of control. The planet is fine, it’s the people we need to worry about because right now people have schemed up this idea that we are causing all the bad weather in the world and we need to switch to cleaner energy and abandon our use of fossil fuels. The problem is, everything uses fossil fuels. So switching to electric vehicles is like a drop in the ocean compared to the mass amount of production around the world. It doesnt do anything when coal is worse but coal plants do burn cleaner than they did when they first were around.

The biggest push is electric vehicles right now. Major manufacturers are starting to build them however a lack of materials for the batteries isnt making mass production possible. The long recharge times and lack of range especially in the cold are 2 major problems of EVs and even then the longevity of the batteries and electric motors is another story as they’re expensive to replace. It’s not cheap to replace a gas engine or transmission either but sometimes its cheaper to repair them. Repairing a blown head gasket vs an engine rebuild is a no brainer. Just got to have around $1,000 to make that happen vs a $4,000 engine rebuild. But electric car motors run about $3,000 per wheel and EV batteries are higher than $5,000. It makes no sense to invest in electric cars. Especially since the batteries are holding these cars from getting more mainstream. People talk about them but most don’t want one. Hydrogen is another energy but so far its supposedly inefficient, but would be far better than gas and with some modifications hydrogen could be used in current gasoline vehicles, making it a much more practical use of our technology. EVs are a stop gap and its most likely they won’t be around for much longer when the amount of EVs being sold is dwarfed by gasoline vehicles. While some countries are getting mostly EVs those are smaller countries.. even California has a small amount of EV market share. They want to ban gasoline vehicles but its unlikely in the event many people will be upset and the ban may never take hold. Not to mention bigger cars can’t handle range as good and towing reduces the charge level to about 30 minutes. Doubtful we’ll see many electric trucks in the future even though they’re trying to make them, they just won’t be practical for towing.

So bottom line is gas is here to stay for awhile at least until 2040 when they try to ban gasoline vehicles and may succeed if EVs get their way and have better range and short recharge times. Then theres the longevity factor. I would recommend sticking with gas or at the very least a hybrid. At least you can save some money on gas and not have to worry about polluting as much. Even Dodge is trying an electric torque assist to reduce gas consumption. Don’t buy into this EV insanity because it most likely won’t happen for quite a while at least.

Illinois moves into the top 20 personal income tax states

If you are in Illinois and upset over the personal income tax hike, well now Illinois is the 16th worst state to be in.

Here’s a list of the states with highest average income tax rates:

California – 7.75
Oregon – 7.73
Minnesota – 7.53
Maine – 7.23
Vermont – 7.18
Hawaii – 7.01
New York – 6.05
Wisconsin – 5.94
North Carolina – 5.49
Connecticut – 5.4
Massachusetts – 5.1
Idaho – 5
New Hampshire – 5
Tennessee – 5*
Utah – 5
Illinois – 4.95
Iowa – 4.92
Rhode Island – 4.83
West Virginia – 4.8
Delaware – 4.71

“The tax increase isn’t a solution to (the state’s financial problems),” Labell said. “The impact of this hike would be felt much sooner than the budget impasse. There would be more economic stagnation and more people will leave the state, and the more people who leave the state, the worse it will be for those who stay.”

The economic downfall of Illinois is already bad. I have not closed on my new property as of yet and i am tempted to just cancel it and work on moving to a better state. Illinois is beyond fixing. The second quote is exactly what will happen. When businesses and residents flee the state the increased tax rate won’t do much with the lousy spending the state is doing. The only way Illinois gets out of the debt and avoid becoming a junk state is to cut 70% of it’s expenses. That means a ton of layoffs, something that no state wants to do but without a budget and without a way to pay off the debt there won’t be a state for people to live in. And that means the entire state will suffer.  For starters IL should shut down their emissions air quality control and cut all road construction and only focus on the roads that desperately need repairing.

When i had a budget crisis of my own i had to make some tough choices. I couldn’t buy any new clothes, couldn’t buy any cleaning supplies (only when i really needed it) and i only drove to work and home. I was still losing money but it wasn’t a whole lot and i got it back during tax time. I am already going to see if i could claim myself as a dependent on state income taxes but that means i won’t be able to spend that money.. and it’s a bit of a headache with that and usually it’s easier to just let them take the money they need out. But if they are not getting paid every week they may have to make more cuts. In the end it won’t matter as the extra money they are trying to get from people will be lost when people are moving out of Illinois. The only solution to fix this is something that the Illinois politicians are not willing to do, but it needs to be done if we are to get out of this budget crisis.

Back in about 2015, Kenneth Zucker’s clinic was falsely accused and shut down, A False Accusation Helped Bring Down Kenneth Zucker, a Controversial Sex Researcher recently came out with a documentary, BBC’s Controversial Documentary on the Gender-Dysphoria Researcher Kenneth Zucker

Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best? (video only works in the UK)

If you can find the documentary, by torrent or by any other way get your hands on it because it shows there is again, a cure for gender dysphoria. It is a very good alternative to allowing your child to become transgender. Activists are upset that, Transgender activists concerned about film this film could increase discrimination against transgender people which is most likely true, but they are already facing high rates of discrimination overall. Even in the documentary, transgender activists do not like alternative therapy. In their mindset transitioning is the only cure/treatment and people need to live with it. They are also headstrung on allowing children to be transgender. But, it is not the best course of action. In the video, and by transgender activism it’s, let your child be transition or they die. Already people are scared to really speak up and really debate the transgender issue, more importantly transgender children. Recently Nat Geo showed a photo and released a magazine dedicated to transgender children. Already ACP, Pediatricians condemn National Geographic over 9-year-old ‘trans’ child on January cover has stated, College of Pediatricians Calls Transgender Ideology ‘Child Abuse’ is child abuse

With the constant negativity surrounding transgenders (only 22% support transgender rights in America) and transgender children we need people like Kenneth Zucker treating gender dysphoria in children properly. He takes a non invasive approach, “developmentally-informed therapy” and none of the kids hated going to see Dr. Zucker, in fact they thought it was quite pleasant. Nothing reparative or electroshocking here like so many transgenders fear. Those days are generally in the past although there may be some people who still practice conversion therapy today, just not in clinics. More like in a parents basement. Whatever the case is, conversion therapy doesn’t work. Transitioning doesn’t work either seeing how high the suicide rates are for transgenders. And the sad part is the transgender activism thinks they are actually helping out those with gender dysphoria but really it’s just a means to an end. In the documentary, 90% of those who went to Dr. Zucker for treatment came out cured. That’s really a big difference from say 50-60% success rate for transitioning treatments. Those that would not be, if going by the 1.4 million transgender statistics that would be, 140,000 Americans who will continue to struggle with gender dysphoria. But, if these 140,000 Americans were analyzed.. better treatments could work. But this greatly depends if any of them are intersex (which is a completely different condition and should not be associated with transgenders) and whether the survey is accurate.

So that 140,000 number could be different and could be very less or more depending on the circumstances. Whatever the case is 90% would not have to worry about being discriminated against. They would live out as their assigned birth gender and not have to worry about additional dating issues and having the proper documentation along with housing, job and family rejection. But the transgender activism won’t have it. We have to watch out for these types of people who are constantly one track minded telling people if they do not transition or if they do not let their children transition they will die. They will feel hopeless, deserted, depressed, anxiety and suicidal. As proven time and time again, transgenders will be depressed and suicidal regardless if they were allowed to be transgender. So the best method we have at this point is Kenneth Zucker’s form of treatment. With a 90% success rate over a 50-60%, that’s a 30-40% better chance with far better results. Already children have 90% chance of growing out of their gender dysphoria with Kenneth Zucker, that success rate will be higher. However, with the transgender activism running rampant (especially in Canada) that 90% chance of growing out will be reduced. By indulging in the child’s fantasy of being the wrong gender, they will grow up thinking that is their actual gender and go through with being transgender with hormone therapy.

As mentioned by others, transgender ideology is child abuse and it’s a mental illness that should be treated, not encouraged. However, transgender activists will continue to try to stop that and continue to fight for transgender rights, however it is the expense of children who have gender dysphoria that have a 40% suicide risk. Kenneth Zucker’s treatment is the most idealistic, ethical and logical method. We need more ethical doctors like Kenneth who is not afraid to stand up for what is right and moral. He does not willingly put children through harm and has a 90% success rate of curing gender dysphoria. Others like Walt Heyer and other ex-transgender people share a similar story that children should not be subjected to being transgender. Sorry transgender activists, but you do not have the right to meddle with children and force parents into accepting that their child is transgender. Transgender activists limit any alternative methods in gender dysphoria treatments and claim that transitioning is the only solution. That is called manipulation. I pray that more doctors such as Kenneth Zucker will continue to properly treat children who have gender dysphoria and we need better methods so that 100% of those that experience gender dysphoria can be treated and will eliminate or reduce discrimination.
