plasminus, very small indeed
But I understand why Janic is interested in penises unsuitable for vaginas that are too narrow
the funny one! A vagina intended to allow a baby to pass only has the appearance of narrowness. But it is true that the asshole of an ox is not made for that in your zoophilic practices... although with a "toothpick"!!!

“Do we” laugh or cry about it?
Macron launches the electric car at 100 euros per month for the most modest

Emmanuel Macron launched on Thursday the leasing of electric cars "at 100 euros per month" for the most modest and his new "electric bonus", with the stated aim of fighting global warming while promoting French or European production.
No Chinese brand or manufacturing model will be eligible for this bonus, which excludes the main Chinese manufacturers like BYD or MG (SAIC) but also the Dacia Spring, the cheapest electric on the market, the Tesla Model 3, MGs or even the new Smart SUVs.
Emmanuel Macron announced the launch of a government platform, mon-leasing-electrique.gouv.fr, to fulfill the commitment of a kick-off before the end of the year.
Concretely, cars can be reserved from January 1, 2024 directly with rental companies and the service will start slowly, with at least 20.000 deliveries over the year.
The offer will then ramp up to adapt to the production of French factories, which are due to launch several electric models in the coming months, such as the Renault 5.
“The goal is that we help you buy electric vehicles produced here,” explained Emmanuel Macron in a video posted on social networks.
He who still said in September that the French love "the car" - "and I love it" - knows that it still represents more than 15% of French greenhouse gas emissions, and that it will be necessary therefore quickly green this use to meet the objective of reducing these emissions by 55% by 2030.
Because if the energy consumption of an electric vehicle allows a household to save over the lifespan of a vehicle, the purchase cost is still often prohibitive for many French people.
Motorists will also be able to turn to used electric vehicles less than three and a half years old, which are starting to arrive on the market.

- "Big rollers" -

This system will ultimately be reserved for half of the lowest-income households (whose reference tax income per unit is less than 15.400 euros), according to an advisor to the executive.
Without initial contribution, the rental is planned for three years, renewable, at a rate of 12.000 km/year.
But initially, the population concerned will be more restricted, to particularly target among these households "active heavy drivers", who drive more than 8.000 km per year or who live more than 15 km from their place of work. Or 20.000 to 25.000 beneficiaries in 2024.
The number of beneficiaries should increase with French production, to be doubled by 2025, it is hoped in the entourage of the Head of State.
The underlying idea is that European, and especially French, production of inexpensive electric models is not yet able to satisfy everyone.
The models which offer the most measured prices are city cars manufactured in Europe but not in France, such as the new Czech-made Citroën ë-C3 (54 euros per month, excluding insurance), the Italian Fiat 500 at 89 euros per month or the Slovenian Renault Twingo, less than 100 euros.
Among the models manufactured in France, the Opel Mokka is priced at 119 euros and the Renault Mégane E-Tech for less than 150 euros, the manufacturers said.
For Marie Chéron, from the NGO Transport & Environment, "the launch of social leasing in 2024 is an important step" but "we will need to expand the system", which could affect, according to a study, 900.000 low-income households by 2030.
State aid for each vehicle at 100 euros per month will be 13.000 euros or, according to an advisor, double the “electric bonus”.
The latter, a new version of the old ecological bonus, now includes environmental criteria to favor exclusively electric and “low carbon” vehicles for the first time, according to a regulatory text which is due to appear in the Official Journal on Friday.
Emmanuel Macron has said in recent months that he wants to avoid French aid being used, ultimately, to buy products manufactured in particular in China.
According to the list unveiled Thursday by the Ministries of the Economy and Energy Transition, eligible vehicles are de facto almost only produced in Europe.

Automobile: no Chinese brand or manufacturing model will no longer be eligible for the ecological bonus in 2024

No Chinese brand or manufacturing model will no longer be eligible for the ecological bonus, which takes into account environmental criteria and in particular the carbon footprint of its manufacturing, according to a list released Thursday by the French Ministry of the Economy.
The list includes 22 brands, the majority of which are European such as Audi, Cupra, Skoda (Volkswagen group), BMW and Mini, Mercedes, Renault, or Citroën, Fiat, Opel and Peugeot (Stellantis group).
Big absentees, however: two queens of the electric market made in China, the Tesla Model 3 and the Dacia Spring, as well as the main Chinese manufacturers like BYD or MG (SAIC), which have launched an attack on the European market with their electric cars, often at knockdown prices.
“Until now, the State has not set any conditions on the manufacturing methods of vehicles purchased with the State bonus,” commented the French Minister of the Economy, Bruno Le Maire, in a press release.
“Hundreds of millions of euros of public money were therefore going to vehicles with a very poor carbon footprint,” he stressed.
With this list, “vehicles produced in France and in Europe which have a particularly small footprint will be supported”, explained the Minister of Energy Transition, Agnès Pannier-Runacher.
The environmental score is calculated by the Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe) with data provided by manufacturers.
Only electric cars obtaining a minimum score of 60 points will be eligible for this aid of several thousand euros allocated to the purchase or long-term rental.
The environmental score takes into account the carbon footprint of production: the materials used, the assembly, the battery and its manufacturing, which still emits a lot of CO2, as well as the transport of the vehicle from its place of manufacture.
If no criterion is eliminatory, the score favors European production.
The aluminum of a car produced in China, for example, is considered more than twice as polluting as the aluminum of a European car. The carbon footprint of a Chinese battery is considered 30% higher than that of a battery manufactured in Europe.

Price drop ?

“Very clearly in the short term, this could penalize Chinese manufacturers,” judges Flavien Neuvy, economist at BNP Paribas personal finance, specialist in auto mobility. “The question is whether they have the capacity to align and lower their prices” to “compensate for the absence of bonuses”.
“I think that if they respond it will involve an aggressive pricing policy,” he notes. “Even if, initially, to gain market share, you have to sell cars practically at a loss,” underlines the specialist.
Mr. Neuvy considers it "not impossible" for Chinese manufacturers to set up factories in Europe, and particularly in Central Europe.
The measure also constitutes a response to the IRA, this set of subsidies allocated by the American government to accelerate green investments in the United States, particularly in the electric vehicle industry.
In detail, among the eligible European electric models, we find the Peugeot 208, 308, 2008 and 3008, the DS 3, the Fiat 500, the Renault Megane, Scenic, Twingo and Zoe, the Audi Q4 e-tron, the BMW iX1 and iX2, the Mercedes EQA and EQB, or the Volkswagen Up, ID.3 and ID.4.
Also included are Asian manufacturers (Toyota with Proace, Nissan Leaf and Townstar, assembled in France and the United Kingdom, or the Hyundai Kona, assembled in the Czech Republic) and Tesla's Model Y, an SUV manufactured near Berlin.
Two models from Volvo (C40, XC40), a Swedish brand but owned by the Chinese Geely, are also on the list.
Concerning Smart, a historically German brand but whose new models are manufactured by Geely as part of a joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, the old Fortwo model is on the list but not its new SUVs.

Excerpt from a Trump speech on 9/12:
“I said I want to be a dictator for one day,” Trump told the New York Young Republican Club annual gala. "And you know why I wanted to be a dictator? Because I want a wall, right? I want a wall and I want to drill, drill, drill."

“I said I wanted to be a dictator for a day,” Trump said at the New York Young Republican Club’s annual gala. "And you know why I wanted to be a dictator? Because I want a wall, right? I want a wall and I want to drill, drill, drill."

But let's be reassured, if he does indeed want to become a dictator, it will only be for one day. Phewff!!!! We breathe!
