Some of the "Greenies" are setting up solar charging stations for their EVs at their homes.

If that makes them tax protestors, then I say:

Then the Fed.gov will have to pay the states to set up such a system. SCOTUS ruled on that type of thing years ago.

With all the bull shit that Xiden is putting forth(or, more likely, others with him signing the paperwork... when he's awake), some states may just decide not to play.
Florida's already posted notice that they are not going along with a COVID "passport". And DeSantis is mightily pissed at the CDC trying to keep cruise ships from sailing from US ports in Florida. If they're sailing from a state-owned port, he should just overrule them and have the FSP enforce it.

You know, we may well be approaching a scenario similar to the book "Unintended Consequences" ........... :?

No they won't - they'll simply make it necessary for the big piles of cash from Uncle Sam that pretty much every state depends on. How do you think we get the drinking age raised to 21, and the dwi limit dropped to .08?

Anzio has loaded 20x138 in new stainless cases for $35 each. Not bad.
