Four point nine billion dollars up front to Elon Musk for his Tesla companies … plus a $7,500 federal income tax credit and a $2,500 rebate to each and every buyer of the Tesla Model S automobile sold in the USA.  Set aside for a moment what we maggot taxpayers get in return and consider just what the virtue-signalling, eco-warrior purchasers of the Model S themselves get for $80,000:  An unreliable vehicle with the fit and finish of a 1970s Chevy.  A jackwagon for “special” people to be seen in (when it’s actually running.)  Golly gee, with deals like this … Continue reading

How Often Do Pigs Feed ?

Quite often, if the pig is named Elon Musk, and he’s at the trough of taxpayer’s money to “finance” another of his “businesses”. Tesla Motors received HUGE subsidies for it’s out of reach electric cars, his outer space ventures, and now for his latest scam. I think it is WAY past time these clowns use THEIR OWN DAMN MONEY to fund their “businesses”. If it is SO great, WHY does it need subsidizing, Elon ?

Knock Me Over With A Feather.

Despite the Obama Regime, and environmentalist wackos like “Motor Trend” , it looks like HIGH-PERFORMANCE, internal combustion, GASOLINE powered sports cars are STILL desired over fancy golf carts.
