Protip: if you ask they will still make the nacho cheese chalupa. If you get a confused teenager ringing you up just tell them to take a Supreme but replace the sour cream with nacho cheese.

I’ll tell you why the 4G Eclipse existed: The choices in the segment in the late 2000s were TERRIBLE, nobody made a good 2 door hardtop at a reasonable price. (I can’t speak for the convertible. It was just dumb. But then again, people bought Sebrings).

Dated a girl who had a 4cyl convertible, God what a disappointing car that was to drive... But it was cheap and ‘sporty’ looking and the previous Gen had serious street cred, so they sold like crazy.

I think mitsu made all their money off exclipses.  Even in ‘95 I remember seeing a lot of them in highschool.

This. 12YO me who didn’t really understand any of that fancy engine stuff yet really liked those old eclipses (Plus it had a V6, not a 4 cylinder like similar cars. and at that age 6>4!)

Yeah. God forbid they expect to take some time off for remembrance events of our latest and most raw national tragedy. How dare they explicitly ask about doing so, and GET EXPLICITLY LIED TO about it, because they should KNOW not to trust the other side even when the other side stands to benefit from attending those

They were told there would be no votes so they could commemorate a tragic event. The Republicans then held a vote anyhow. I think you’ve just given us a textbook example of victim blaming here.

The point that the Dems were, after being told there would be no votes taking place, attending memorial services honoring the heroes and victims of 9/11, which to be honest is what the NC Republicans should have been doing, and likely would have been doing had they not concocted this sleazy scheme.

Assuming you burn some sort of fuel in your F250, you’re paying taxes on miles driven every time you fill up. You understand that a Prius will (in general) pay lower gas taxes than an F250, right?

2nd Gear: The logical plan is to switch to a “distance x weight” formula of registration fees. This should get people paying for (very roughly) the amount of road that they use. Out of state travel will be a bit of a challenge to deal with, but it shouldn’t be too bad.

This isn’t a bad idea. At inspection/registration time, take an odometer reading. Subtract last year’s reading. Multiply times some factor. Add the product to annual registration fees. Then you could ditch gas taxes and make it even for everyone.

Distance x weight x carbon/mile would be my addition to the multivariable formula. Every car would have its ‘MPG’ carbon accounted for and those who produce less carbon per mile would pay proportionally less in taxes.

Sure, as long as the gas subsidies are eliminated and a current + past pollution tax for carbon is instituted along with it.

Then your gas will be 6-10$/gallon.

I need to report my mileage whenever I buy a car, and again whenever I renew my license plate sticker (every 2 years). It’s entirely self reported, just a text box on the renewal form. If someone under reports their mileage while they owned a car then they’ll get caught when the new buyer reports mileage much higher

In my state there’s annual vehicle inspections that must be done prior to registration. They read the OBD, which has mileage. The DMV gets the inspection data electronically from the testing businesses already, so I’d think it would be a slam dunk for the DMV to calculate your mileage from the previous year and use

With a pollution factor in there as well to incentivize cleaner vehicles, yes.

I didn't care much about this one way or the other until just now. The pictures are a silly nonissue, but so was her campaign in general. And the line about being a mother to all the babies in the country was just bizarre and offputting.
