That will never happen in the US. You know it and I know it. When battery swapping has been discussed before by Detroit the consensus was "go fuck yourselves, you can't tell us what to do." I am paraphrasing. Also 50% for believes that the government is incapable of building the federal highway system, putting men on the moon, or anything without fucking it up. It has to be private in the US due to our self reinforcing bullshit machine. Anyway it doesn't matter because this would work just on pure price cost accounting.

This is the only realistic approach to over coming the issues of charging speed, temperature, and time. You can also then have economy, regular ,and premium grades of batteries based on formulation or size. It also removes any concerns about battery longevity as once premium packs and be moved into economy as they age. This allows the batteries to be pampered when charging as well. Once you know the optimum rate of charge for longevity you now longer have to force feed the battery because of humans needs or time scales, just have a large enough buffer of batteries in the system.

That was his definition and goal the practical application in Italy is not important to the point, that the GOP is the heir to Mussolini's fascism.

As to left right that has nothing to do with my point. Furthermore it is such a fine point that it would be lost on 99% of the people on the planet. I see what you're talking about but for all intents and purposes when you get that far out of the end of the insanity bell curve you wrap back around to the other side; crazy is crazy.

Allen Dulles was their lawyer when they were charged with trading with the enemy. John Foster Dulles ( a man my grandfather described as the most stupid and evil man in America after having the displeasure of working with him ) created the school of thought that created both the neocons, the Iran crisis, and a great deal of the things that Al Qaeda sited as justification to go to war with us.

No that Gerrymandering, racism, and fascism. Mussolini defined fascism as the combination of state and corporation with religious conservatism for indoctrination. That's why they call Obama the Imperial president they attack their own weakness, un encumbered by the realization that the thing they hate the most they are most guilty of themselves.
