Tesla in Taos?

The Taos News - - FAVOR Y CONTRA - Ar­royo Seco Ran­chos de Taos

Right now to try a Tesla, you have to drive to a sub­urb of Den­ver. We are one of the few states that do not al­low Tesla to have a show­room. I can see why. Once you try a Tesla, you will not want to buy any other car. This will hurt the out­moded sales and ser­vice model that the deal­er­ships rely on to stay in busi­ness. I sent an email to our fu­ture gover­nor, ask­ing her to con­sider al­low­ing Tesla to op­er­ate in our state.

Right now Kit Car­son Elec­tric Co-op uses so­lar en­ergy for 30 per­cent day­time pro­duc­tion of elec­tric­ity. This is to be

100 per­cent by year 2022. This can only mean bet­ter air qual­ity, safer cars on the road and less traf­fic to Santa Fe or Al­bu­querque for ser­vice. These cars have

20 mov­ing parts rather than the 2,000 that com­bus­tion en­gine cars have. I never took a test drive, I went on­line, picked the fea­tures I wanted, and had the car (I named it Sparky) de­liv­ered.

I will get a $7,500 re­bate on my taxes. This will be cut in half next year. While some peo­ple put their name on a list a year ago or more, it took us only about a month. This af­ter­noon I cli­mate-con­trolled the car re­motely us­ing the Tesla app. The ac­cel­er­a­tion, fea­tures and per­for­mance are as­tound­ing and make all other ve­hi­cles feel like horse and buggy.

Trump’s fail­ure to con­demn the right-wing white su­prem­a­cists in Vir­ginia and a sim­i­lar group in Ari­zona is, in my opin­ion, a trickle down ef­fect on all Chi­canos/Mex­i­cans/ Hlspanlcs/ ge­nizaros. Some His­panos are very much con­cerned with what is tak­ing place in Wash­ing­ton, D.C. I be­lieve it is un-Amer­i­can when Trump mocks per­sons who dif­fer with him and uses Mex­i­cans or Mus­lims to spew his racist feel­ings much like Hitler did.

Be­lieve It can’t hap­pen here? De­spierten her­manos! Wake up be­fore It’s too late! Ja­panese Amer­i­cans were put in con­cen­tra­tion camps (in­tern­ment camps) for se­cu­rity. Amer­ica praised the de­struc­tion of the Ber­lin wall and Trum­pli­cans are build­ing a wall. Both those im­mi­grants caught in the U.S. who are re­spon­si­ble, hard­work­ing tax­pay­ers or those cross­ing the U.S./Mex­i­can bor­der seek­ing refuge from vi­o­lence get de­ported. Their chil­dren? These kids sep­a­rated from their par­ents are placed in con­cen­tra­tion camps or placed in fos­ter homes. Can this hap­pen to our chil­dren? Why not?

La co­mu­nidad Chlcana/ Mex­i­cana/His­pana must get out to vote. I be­lieve that can­di­dates who run un­der the Repub­li­can Party are Trump sup­port­ers and are us­ing de­cep­tive tac­tics to ac­qlre Demo­cratic votes. For ex­am­ple Pearce in­tro­duces Land Grant leg­is­la­tion at a time he will not be in Congress to see it through. Other Re­pub­li­cans fail to men­tion party af­fil­i­a­tion .Can­di­dates in my opin­ion choose party af­fil­i­a­tions based on the ba­sic phi­los­o­phy of said party.

Bueno, New Mex­i­cans, get out and VOTE. FRAN­CISCO “EL COMANCHE”
