So let’s move passed assuming and agree on what we know.I've haven't seen the court order. I saw the EPA report when they made their unannounced visit to GDE and the preceding thereafter. The EPA detailed every moment, the mood, the atmosphere, the layout of the building, the number of employees, computers, files, software, equipment, etc. The EPA documented what they asked for, why they asked for it, etc. I'm not sure where to find those court proceedings or I would extract those for you.
The owner of GDE is a good patriot and wouldn't do anything that wasn't required of him by court order. Customers who were involved with the court order could give you more details since they received letters in the mail. Nobody blamed GDE and nobody said he was a sellout. They knew, based on documentation, that he had no choice but to comply.
This is why I'm against big government. Big government, for any reason, can destroy your life. If you don't believe me, ask Michael Flynn. Michael Flynn didn't commit a crime and they still tried to destroy his life.
Honestly, I think GDE was targeted because of the FCA EcoDiesel lawsuit. FCA had to pay 307.5 million dollars just because they found a legal loophole. Otherwise, the EcoDiesel met emissions and didn't break the law. This isn't like the VW dieselgate where VW changed the software. FCA, like GDE, found a legal loophole in the system. Much like GDE, FCA was found guilty of misrepresentation.
In the settlement, it says that FCA was found guilty of 'misrepresentation'. It's a sad day in America when you are found guilty and didn't break the law. Michael Flynn didn't break the law and they tried to sentence him to prison even after the DOJ dropped the charges.Doesn't sound all that legal, or FCA probably wouldn't have got fined.
I've always been good at networking. Some of you know that, some of you are learning it.How'd you end up with that gig?
I mostly edit in silent mode and don't make a public stink about it. Some moderators will send a public message (make a teaching moment for everyone). My style is to edit privately and send an explanation as to why the comment/post/image broke a forum rule. Typically, that resolves repeated abuse. I have no problem moving forward with the banning process if someone doesn't want to play by the rules, though. After all, good moderators try to do what's best for the forum community. Since going to the new format, the admin has asked that we be stricter on the rules.Must keep you occupied surfing CF trying to keep things on track and everyone on their best behavior.
Actually, tryNto has made it easy for me. I remind people of the guidelines that were posted a few months ago.
Personally, I wouldn't worry about it. I'm very involved with NM legislation and talk to NM house and senate members regularly. From what I'm hearing, most climate change legislation here in NM will begin for 2022 and beyond. There's some legislation working its way through the process that deals with automobile emissions, but from what I can see, it deals mostly with increasing fuel economy standards. I think the proposal was to increase from 37 mpg to 52 mpg starting next year. How they will enforce this is beyond me. Basically, they are wanting to regulate what dealers can sell to the public.Sounds like I may be on their list but maybe towards the bottom of it?
Watch I get a letter tomorrow haha
