Just when you thought the stench of liberal hypocrisy couldn’t be any more obnoxious and repellent, they raise the bar again.
Peters is not amused by this obnoxious flaunting of elitist privilege and power.
A much better America existed in 1967, the year Chevrolet built Biden’s Corvette. That year, Chevy built cars to meet the demands of the market, the people who put up their own money to buy what was built – and were free not to. As opposed to this year – when the entire car industry has been Sovietized and builds what government apparatchiks tell them to. And people are cattled-prodded into buying them – and made to subsidize them, even if they don’t buy them.
It was possible, in that better time, to fit delicate but beatiful bumperettes to the Corvette. To put form ahead of function. Because it looked good – and that was all that mattered. If you didn’t like it, you were free to not buy it. To buy a “safer” – uglier – car, such as a Volvo, for instance.
A few years alter, the government would “mandate” that every new car be fitted with battering ram bumpers that Ugly Betty’d all of them.
Biden got to choose – a choice he and his insist we not be permitted to make for ourselves.
Joe clearly loves driving around in his carbureted, V8-powered, emissions-uncontrolled car, irrespective of its “carbon footprint.” He just doesn’t want you to do that. It is an elaboration of Leona Helmsley’s dictum that “only the little people” pay taxes.
Biden’s Corvette has low-back bucket seats without visibility-obscuring headrests, also mandated for “safety.” Joe can also rest his withered arm on the top of the door, because – in that better America – Chevy was not obliged to build up a structural steel bathtub around the occupants, as car-makers are these days.
Cars were not one-size-fits-all nack in ’67, as they mostly are today. Because it was not necessary, in those days, to build each car exactly alike insofar as how it tested on government…tests. Adding (or deleting) AC adds (or subtracts) load and that can affect mileage and emissions, two things that weren’t issues in 1967.
It is because of people like Biden that cars such as Biden’s are no longer available. Haven’t been available – for decades. 1973 was the last year one could buy a new car without apparatchik-mandated “5 MPH” bumpers. It wasn’t too much loger before the same apparatchiks mandated that all new cars be fitted with “passive” safety systems which at first meant those hateful automatic seat belts that wrapped around you as soon as you sat down and shortly thereafter meant air bags in every new car. It is because of air bags that new cars no longer offer the intricate/distinctive steering wheel designs that were – once – the centerpiece of cars such as Biden’s Corvette.
The Joker-leering Thing behind the wheel is unconcerned, for he has his and that is all that matters to Things such as this.
EeeeeeeVeeeeees for us. All the same, per the Things. Who drive what we’re told we mustn’t and soon won’t be allowed to.
Just one of many things they assume the right to enjoy themselves, while denying it to the rest of us. According to commenter Roscoe, the roots of Pedo Joe’s privilege go deeper still as far as his Corvette is concerned.
Biden didn’t buy the car at the end of a deliberative process where he carefully considered the pros and cons vs. other models like a lot of people who weighed a similar purchase at the time. He received the vehicle as a gift from his wealthy Chevy dealer father.
…The stories vary about why Scranton Joe’s *wealthy Chevy dealer* (lets not forget that) father gave him the ‘vette. Some days, the story is that the car was a wedding gift.
Man, I am in the wrong business for sure. All these years I spent wrenching, singing, writing, and trucking when I should have been a corrupt ProPol, or at least a used-car dealer.
