    Other than it must be Hunter bidens fault Fucked if i know

    but trump put a big tariff on Canadian aluminium, never mind that America produces almost no aluminium and if they needed to declare war on some one they would run out of aluminium pretty quick

    so likely republicans in congress would be trying cut the aluminium tarif

    just like now they wana make nice on lumber

    the real solution would be to just declare war

    on Canada eh

    The Russian company backing an aluminum project in Kentucky said it’s suspending investments as it waits for U.S. partners to raise funds, dealing a new setback to the billion-dollar-plus mill that was supposed to be completed last year.

    United Co. Rusal International PJSC announced the move on Unity Aluminum, formerly known as Braidy Industries, in a call on Wednesday. Rusal has so far poured $65 million into the venture, which local officials have been counting on to bring hundreds of high-paying jobs to the region.

    The funding freeze is the latest in a series of twists, including a battle for control of the mill that led to the ousting last year of Braidy’s chief executive officer, and questions over the timing when the U.S. lifted sanctions on Rusal. The plan announced in 2017 was for a $1.3 billion rolling mill to meet growing demand for the metal from the automotive, packaging and aerospace markets.

    “Unfortunately, our partner failed to contribute necessary equity from their side, so then it was a substantial change of the management and shareholder structure of Braidy Industries,” Oleg Mukhamedshin, Rusal’s deputy CEO, said on a call. “We put on hold any further investments of the project as per our agreement, and we still expect our partners to raise necessary financing after the Covid pandemic gets better.”

    Mukhamedshin said Rusal’s “Plan B” is to convert the investment into a debt instrument with certain securities if Unity Aluminum isn’t successful in securing the necessary funding.

    In 2019, Rusal announced its commitment to invest $200 million in the plant, which stirred up criticism as the decision came shortly after the U.S. Treasury Department lifted sanctions on Rusal and its parent company. A spokesman for Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, then majority leader, told the Washington Post that the lawmaker didn’t know at the time that Braidy had hopes of a deal with Rusal when he backed the effort to lift sanctions on the Russian company.

    So called “Mexican Overdrive”

    Wether it saves fuels or not depends on if carbureted or fuel injected.

    Carbureted engines use fuel both while idling out of gear and while in gear.

    Fuel injected engines use fuel while idling out of gear, but if in gear with no throttle they use zero fuel.

    So “Mexican Overdrive” does not save fuel with fuel injected engines

    Cuban taxi bro was probably carbureted, so potentially he was saving fuel, but a very minimal amount.

    Article in one of the papers this morning I can't find anymore but apparently the chip shortage is getting real, as we like to say. Up to a year for some deliveries. Manufacturers are starting to hoard chips and everything else; not just fat southerners with plastic bags hoarding stuff. Smart people will hold off on buying stuff as long as they can--that's what you do when prices go through the roof. What people usually do is buy more and more when prices skyrocket.

    If Pelosi and McConnell's constituencies were planets, Nancy's would be Jupiter and Mitch's would be Ork.

    Gentleman’s bet that Mitch pops a blue pill or two and jerks off to a 30 year old picture of Pelosi’s fun bags before a big vote just to go into the chamber clear eyed.

    If Mitch said nanoo nanoo on the senate floor, while wearing rainbow suspenders, I wouldn’t hate him quite so much

    It’s actually jacking up the price of use chips too. It’s getting extremely hard to find motherboards for a computer that’s only one or two generations old.
