Now you are being negative. Listen as I said, if you deduct WH sales, GE sales and much other BS you work out that the only guy that ever bought a Volt was Freddy and even he denies it. So what does gmint motors do, spend a fortune tooling up for an electric Caddy. Aint libs great.

Phkn idots.

Shush, that was supposed to be a secret. I would hate to think Sam would start to know me as a kindred spirit, you never know how deep that rabbit hole goes. I did the trip without gas and stopped 243 times to charge as I wanted to be happy like the TV ad. Berwick lamp posts are a bitch to connect to, I thought I smelled calcium carbide.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA - I slay myself.

Guys please. We must change with the times. It's not too late to stop the oceans from rising. All our liberal friends ask is that the USA goes back to the stone age, but no campfires. No stone tools either, that disrupts the environment. Steven Chu has all the answers, just be patient and give Barry another 4 years to finish us off, I mean finish the job.
Ignore those rumors about China putting another coal plant online every two weeks. Their entire country is powered by party loyal workers pedalling bamboo generators.
Don't you realize how horribly inefficient incandescant light bulbs are? We need mercury vapor filled curly- que light bulbs this instant. The mercury in those Jeffrey Immelt/China made bulbs is different from the one part in a billion mercury that comes from coal. As a matter of fact, the EPA is planning on banning paper matches, flashlights, the production of apple pies; and in 2016, fire. That's right, fire is the worst pollutant.

Now please, we MUST save the everything. Also on the list of decadent western inventions that must be prohibited is, toothpicks, plastic and paper bags, cats, dogs, any form of self-defense, and trimming your hedges.

I'm shopping for a Volt right now; I intended to put a hemp snow plow on it; but I hear they're banning snow plowing too. Just wait till spring.

Can't resist, you guys are having all the fun. You do realize that everytime you stop and charge up they can track you and TAX you. Just part of the plan.

No stone tools either, that disrupts the environment.

Also, this is the truth Dann. There are beaches in E. Maine that they used to haul stone off of by the truck load to make concrete for bridges, etc. Now there are signs everywhere that is illegal to take the rocks from the beach. ANY beach. Funny, that beach they hauled untold truckloads off of doesn't look one bit different then it did before they started. After some big storms the rocks disappear, and then they come right back in the next one. the ocean makes rocks daily.
One of the really dumb things is the fall die-off of seaweed. There will be windrows 2 ft. deep of it for miles on the beach. It is super for the garden and for generations people used hayforks and filled trucks with it and tilled it into the gardens in the fall. Now there are whacked out liberals running around trying to stop it. And they are the ones that want everything to be organic!

as coalnewbie says,
Phnk Idots!

The Volt gets a little brother for 2014. The electric only Chevy Spark EV is coming. Promised to just eek in at under $25,000 after the Federal $7,500 incentive/rebate (the tab for which every citizen will pick up). Thats $32,500 without the incentive. The gas version of the same car costs under $13,000. The Spark EV's footprint to me appears to be identical to a Chevy Aveo hatchback, which is its twin in my book. The Spark is made in South Korea, likely by the same factory that made the Aveo's. Does that mean the GM bailout money (I.E., your tax dollars at work) just funded an all electric car made in South Korea? Why yes! Yes it does!

They already have that figured out. GPS systems will track you and record your mileage. Then you will receive a road tax bill based on how many miles you drive a year. That will punish the guy who gets 36 MPG, and benefit the guy who gets 12 MPG, but if you get infinite MPG's you will not be beating the system. After all, the system is the solution.

The SPARK - perfect name, as that is what usually precedes a FIRE ... :funny:

Electric cars ... hmmmm ..... see the experience this NYT reporter had with the Tesla: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/02/10/autom ... .html?_r=0

As an added bonus, they will know where you are and where you've been.

. see the experience this NYT reporter had with the Tesla:


I read this before and Tesla's response to it. I am siding with them right now. Seems there was some incentive to make it fail. If anyone has a good electric car it is Tesla, but look at the cost!

If the government would get out of the way, I'm sure the cost would come down.

Early adopters bear a large part of the costs for everyone else.

All consumer electronics follow the same path.

Not here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland. They are upping the motor fuel tax 2 ~ 7 cents a gallon for the next couple of years and also want to index future increases to the inflation rate so they don't even have to have their finger prints on future increases. Also that federally mandated GPS system they will use to send you a highway use tax bill will also be used to send you the speeding tickets that the same GPS system will record for you. :D I'm sure it's for the children so we shouldn't care.

My main reason for building a still is not to drink it, but to use it for fuel ... even though it sucks as such.
