And this is why right wing dupes keep posting garbage. Garbage in, garbage out.

On his show Tuesday night, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly falsely claimed that the California-based Tesla Motors was $523 million in the hole.

The conservative Fox News host was discussing the alleged failure of the Energy Department’s clean-energy loan program, which invested billions of dollars in green companies and start-ups.

“Tesla Motors, alright, they got net losses — and this is another electric car, right?—$523 million in losses,” O’Reilly said with a chuckle.“In losses, and they got $465 million bucks from the government!”

However, Tesla Motors said in February in a letter to shareholders that the company had a net loss of $89.9 million — far lower than O’Reilly’s figure.

Tesla Motors also said it was on track to be profitable in the first quarter of 2013.

not totally; apparently, there's a reason why he loves going on so many "campaign stops". He's putting the old 'one-eye to tuna-town' with California AG, Kamala Harris. Now that Michelle has a caboose that rivals with Oprah, Obama's "white" blood is taking the full effect here.

What an wonderful addition to the human race you two are. And the fact that none of your right wing cohorts has the decency to call you out makes them just as guilty.

Right, you're just a childish Obama hater. It's not political or philosophical for you, it's personal. And it's racist.

Please be nice and if you are looking for ways to work from home give this a chance:

There are ways to supplement work income by working from home. Do you all remember when doing surveys paid really really well? This was before everybody caught on and began to do it and the companies lowered to rate of compensation.

Here is the next big thing and that is earning up to $80 an hour playing games... check it out. http://bit.ly/YeXiV6

Did President Obama have anything to do with this?

Woh. Hot opportunity, eh? How much Tesla stock have you personally purchased, then?

Oh, you're such a big tough guy, aren't you? Especially from a guy who doesn't know anything about economics except your little "cut the deficit, lower taxes on the rich" mantra.

The point, dimwit, was that O'Reilly could only make his case by using incorrect and out of date numbers in order to, as usual, make another spurious attack on Mr. Obama. Like you. Like most of the Goofy Old Poops.

And, psssst, I always try to use someones else's money to profit in the market. My Daddy didn't raise no fools.

Hey joe,

Does it worry you that the DHS has gotten distracted from their bulk purchases of hollow point ammo to shoot at law abiding citizens to now focus on stocking up on bagpipes?

How's that sequester going???

Nah, doesn't really worry me. But then again, I'm busy enjoying a real life. And since progressives seem to be building their majorities I'm fairly confident we'll soon have the country back on track. Right wing hate wears pretty thin after a while.

All your paranoia seems to get you dolts is un-happiness, fear, and grumpy attitudes. Good luck with that.

Just out of curiosity... in your mind is there any middle ground between blind worship of the state and "right wing hate?"

I'm curious, is all.

No you're not. Just more disingenuous crap coming from a complete phony. I don't blindly worship the state (which is what, by the way?). Which state are we talking about; the state run by the Democrats or the state run by the Republicans? And right wing hate is real and dangerous and is fomenting huge amounts of right wing fear and violence in this country.

I'm a Rationalist, who thinks people as very similar and pretty un-political when left alone. But those same people can be persuaded of some incredibly idiotic ideas if they're frightened, angry or lied to. And the low educational levels in many of the so-called red states is also a seed bed of stupid ideas.

And if you have some recommendations on "middle ground" leaders you'd like to point out I'd be happy to hear who they might be and what they have to say. Any at all.'Cause the bottom line is after all our little verbal jousts are done you have to vote for someone who represents what you believe in. I'm open.

you still didn't point to the post you nincompoop. You don't have a clue what hate or racism is; it's racist to you because you drew a conclusion from watching a cable news show; a perfect example of waste to the human race; your a sheep. Nothing you post is original.

The only majority that's building in this nation under the present incompetent leadership in Washington, joe, is Americans who aren't working.

And that's not "hate" of any wing, joe - that's simple FACT. Facts don't wear thin, no matter how many lib progs in denial like yourself would rather dream of their socialist sugarplum fairies and click their rube slippers.

And it isn't paranoia when the DATA says they really are driving the nation into bankruptcy with profligate spending we have now way of paying for. That's reality.

Good to know you'll be just happy and snoozy as America is turned into Greece; real Americans are waking up to the lies and foolishness and are going to turn that impending train wreck around.

There's nothing wrong with exploding welfare rolls and high unemployment. If you right-wing haters would just pay higher taxes and turn your guns in, Obama could focus on printing more money to pay for it all.

I don't know how it will work... but joe is an economics expert. I'll let him explain...

And you're just too dense to see any other reason for the sluggish economy than Barack Obama. I don't care about your infantile blabbering about socialism (we live in a capitalist/socialist country, get over it) or "profligate spending", for you're just another right wing propagandist. No, my concern is the right wing fools and uninformed and uneducated people like yourself you elect to office. That's why I keep asking you mouth foamers to tell us who represents your ignorant positions. Who are you going to vote for? What do they have to say?

And if you want to continue to compare Greece (34th in world ranking GDP) with the US (1) than by all means keep proving how unsophisticated you are and what a fringe right wing hack you are. It's funny how you accuse me of being partisan. Your the most partisan sack on this forum.

Again, who are "real Americans" going to vote for to "turn that impending train wreck around."? Any names, recommendations, huh? I didn't think so.

So you DO have an explanation about how high unemployment, exploding welfare, higher taxes, and further printing dollars would be GOOD for the country?

Even though I might not understand... I'd encourage you to take a few minutes and post it... If only for the benefit of your fellow worshipers. Then they'll be armed with the info for when they encounter "extremists" and "haters" that confront them with facts.

Do it for your country, er, I mean your party, joe! The party is what's important!

Ohhh, poo baby. I guess you think you so cwever. You and teddy sound like thirteen year-old little girls. I don't care what YOU believe, I'd like to hear who your favorite politicians are, though. Still don't have any I see.

You realize that your foaming at the mouth doesn't mean anything, right? Why not tell us who you think we should take a look at to lead, to implement and represent your loony ideas, i.e., lower taxes on the wealthy, privatize social security, cut funds for education, increase military spending, eliminate regulations on corporations but add regulations on voting, etc., etc., etc.

And I guess you've dropped your ridiculous pretense about being "objective" and seeking the "middle ground", huh?

As per:

There's nothing wrong with exploding welfare rolls and high unemployment. If you right-wing haters would just pay higher taxes and turn your guns in, Obama could focus on printing more money to pay for it all.

FYI- Another one of those corporations that's over-regulated I guess:

Corrections Corporation Of America Admits To Falsifying Staffing Records

BOISE, Idaho (AP)— The private company that operates Idaho's largest prison admitted Thursday that it falsified nearly 4,800 hours of staffing records over seven months last year in violation of its annual contract with the state.
