Kalifornia electric car fiasco. As I was walking in the downtown area of the capital of Kalifornia the other day, I noticed electric car charging stations in the parking lot of a subsidized, low income housing building.

Oh, that’s right, I was in Kalifornia, where the homeless, illegal and poor get everything one can think of to ‘solve’ the crisis.
