Congress Moves to Exacerbate the Unjustifiable Electric Vehicle Subsidy Monstrosity

We at CFIF have repeatedly highlighted how the electric vehicle (EV) subsidy complex captures the American public's most hated elements of bureaucracy:  crony capitalism, wasteful spending, inefficient incentives and government picking winners and losers.

Whatever novelty that EVs may offer, taxpayer dollars shouldn't be subsidizing them, and bureaucrats shouldn't be unjustifiably foisting them upon a perfectly healthy automobile marketplace.

A woman in Australia is suing her neighbors, claiming she is offended by the smell of meat and fish emanating from their backyard barbecues.

Cilla Carden, a vegan, says she cannot enjoy her own backyard because of the neighbors' barbecue, smoking, and children playing basketball.

“It’s deliberate,” Carden told news agencies. “All I can smell is fish. I can’t enjoy my backyard.”

Carden’s original complaint and her appeal were both rejected, but she says she will keep fighting.

According to news reports, a neighborhood barbecue is planned for next month near her home.

“Don’t let Cilla destroy a good old Aussie tradition, join us for a community BBQ, and help Cilla Carden GET SOME PORK ON HER FORK,” the event description reads on a Facebook community page.
