    Move outside the US and there are fleets of EVs...even linehaul with power supplied by overhead wires,with a battery auxillary for off the wires......The entire Queensland coal rail network is electric,but transports many millions of tons of export coal to the terminals for shipping as far away as Wales.Now thats green.We also have a green socialist government that approves new coal mines every other month,and seems to very prone to doing big buck deals with capitalists.We have one of the lowest tax overall regimes in the world with free heath ,hospitals ,education,roads ,waterways etc....So Im not complaining.

    Well having it so very good we usually have wondered why you then persist in complaining about the United States like you do. I know that this is not a pastime for most Australians as I have met several right here who visit Florida. Many even have moved here and become citizens. When I see most of your posts it reminds me of those who like yourself are of a special mindset.

    Now that y’all have everything under control down under then you should take it world wide. Your self and the Professor can set sail tomorrow. We have a bet on which one of you will dominate on the trip and I bet on you John. You have a much better character than the Professor anyway as the things which you post like this last one can actually be taken as a positive statement.

    Never have disliked Australia or Australians and it is on the bucket list to visit one day. It seems to be well run if it is as you describe. Perhaps y’all would take some of our Democrats over there and reprogram them and send them back to us healed and more like you. “What a wonderful wonderful world it would be”. As sung by Paul Simon.

    I post this not just for you guys but to impress your beautiful downtrodden women folk. Y’all play too smart for them to love you but hey it is a ego thing I guess. Just try playing dumb- it should not be very hard.
