Post vaccine/successful therapeutics, post hopefully fixing healthcare and racial injustice and

hopefully putting us on the right track with climate change...

Can we do to bring our spirit back? What good thing could we focus on.

Sitting outside and hearing fireworks everywhere. Hoping it's just families trying to bring some normalcy to their kids.

I am keen on high speed rail. Boston to Miami. DC to LA. Seattle to LA. Chicago to Houston.

1. We need a greater push toward fuel efficient transportation.

There's no way in hell that vehicles should be getting 37 MPG in 2020. That number should be doubled or tripled. We need vehicles that get 95 - 100 MPG or more. We definitely aren't making enough of a push to get people to buy fuel efficient or electric vehicles. And electric trucks definitely can't come soon enough either. The sooner we replace the gas guzzlers the better.

3. Agree.. how could you spin that into a national cause?

It could be part of a bigger thing? Energy, planet, environment?

5. Probably all of the above.

Plus you could also link it to the pandemic since there are theories out there that Coronavirus is a natural response to global warming. Don't want global warming to happen? Let's stop using fossil fuels for good and make a national switch to use hybrid and electric transportation. Switching to renewable energy will help heal the planet.

my drug store today... Boarded up closed due to Covid. Watched the lunatic's crazy Mt Rushmore speech last night (huge mistake)
