If it wasn't for the tax-breaks the bankrupted domestics and auto unions both still depend on to this day...

for the likes of the negative general-fund balance caused by the communist party unions and the obamamobile alike...

there would be nothing to pay for all its' "Marketing Hype".

Too Funny.
That's very true...

even Barack Obama warned that electricity rates would skyrocket under his administration's plans...

and some believe this was done so that mainstream Americans wouldn't object to these gradual, steady increases...

so he can dell the obamamobile another year.

Too Funny.

So far this year, sales of battery only vehicles have exceeded EVs and Extended Range EVs.
Guess I'm not sure how this plays into the conversation.

20,000 pre-sales. My son bought Tesla shares at $25. It has gained much, but I told him to keep an eye on it. I sent him the link concerning Tesla's mass email asking pre-sale customers to buy ASAP. I suspect they gave them some incentives. It was done to show big sales, thus boosting the price of the stock.
He understands and says he will sell at $55 and buy back in when it settles. He wants to buy a mid-range Tesla S for his wife's commute and in town driving. They will use the Volt for long trips. 5 years ago, when I started talking to him about the Volt and the S, he had absolutely no interest. He wanted to buy another Mustang Cobra. They have a BMW also. Once you taste those big savings, you can never go back.
I personally love the Tesla Roadster. They have been around these parts for quite awhile. Now that's a real toy, but who cares?
I'm very concerned with their future and yes the stock is bloated like a michigan union.

Root, stay out of this.
Not nearly as nasty as other REALLY nasty stuff posted in the past.

LuvVolt--- leave your personal affairs out of these discussions. They are of no merit, end of story.
All your sanctimonious boastfulness serves no purpose, but your persistence in holding it over everyone else is just asking for more ridicule back at you.
So either continue to wallow in self pity created by your own actions, or just knock it off and stop stressing over it.
Enjoy your family, your preferred life style, your Volt, your little nest egg, life's simple pleasures, etc., but for god's sake spare us all your whining about being picked on.
If the kitchen is too hot for your comfort, then go find a place more comfortable.
Most folks with half a brain would do so, so why not you?

Doesn't matter what someone says to the guy.
Somehow he'll imagine it to be a putdown, and cry the blues or have a hissy fit at length about it.
What started him into his pity party is way back when I first talked about one of his lengthy diatribes, I used the term "bozo".
Well that did it---LMV had a conniption fit over that.
You would have thought it was the ultimate in foul language to hear him talk--blasphemy of the worst order.
And it was just an innocuous word--"bozo".
Who woulda thunk.
Now you used the word " runt". What 's the harm in that.
Our kids when they were little were sometimes called "Rug Rats".
Nobody took offence at that, and why should they.
I think the guy is just a little too insecure.
Sure can't handle the every day gaff that occurs here.

Sanctimonious bullish-t!! That's nothing but a self righteous lie!!
Do you need to be reminded about some of the really vile language that occurs here frequently?
If you like, I'll cut and past some choice stuff for you to judge and complain about.
Funny thing is, you've never said a word about it, and in fact posted some pretty vile stuff yourself!

I want these vehicles to sell regardless of what type of energy drive them. Don’t start crap with me. Between you fights with love Volt and sexual identity, you’re the last one to be sarcastic.

So I posted some relevant sales stats comparing plugins to pure electrics.
What's the harm (or sarcasm) in that for god's sake.
You're getting to be as touchy as LMV.

Are you inferring that I'm the one posting that sexual perversion nonsense?
