Sending Us Over the Cliff

forward_coyote
With every news outlet parroting the term, “Fiscal Cliff”, we see amazingly divergent opinions on what put us at this impasse. Conservatives and liberals are actively counting on fixing the blame on each other. But our trouble is nothing new. To understand it, simply look to African countries that have suffered leftist revolutions. The pattern is simple: once in power, take everything you can steal, and give it to your biggest supporters (e.g., take productive farms from their hard working owners, and give them to your gang of thugs, who will squander everything they touch, leaving the ground fallow and ruined).
A case in point is Wynton Hall’s article in Brietbart.com:

Of course he got a grant. Electric car, looks good, powered by batteries, 200 mile range, 12 hours to recharge. What’s not to like about limiting the people’s ability to travel freely?

Sickening what has become of our government!

My neighbor took delivery of her Tesla S three weeks ago And it is simply the best car I have ever had the pleasure to drive. Unbelievably quick and phenomenally roomy. Her 85kw model takes just under 5 hours to charge using the twin 80A chargers on the 240V/80A wall connector in her garage. That’s for about 300 miles of range. I want one.

I think the emphasis is on “stories.” If you get the chance, talk to a real owner.

Minor notes. I talked to my neighbor this morning and she pointed out that her’s is actually a top-of-the-line Tesla S Sport. Also, she and her husband intend to add the Tesla 440V/200A charger when it is available which will bring her car to a full 80kWh charge in about 45 mins.

I wonder what their electric bill is compared to gasoline. To me it’s still nothing but environmentalist smoke and mirrors. If I were taking a trip, I sure wouldn’t be driving one.

It costs her about $10 for 300 miles of charge. The 440/200 system will cost a small amount less to charge. For trips they still have her husband’s car.

I wonder what that is in KW and the cost per KW. I have a tendency to not trust “about”.

About 9 cents per kWh here for residential so, when she says “about” she actually means that it is well under $10 per charge.

So basically, she’s not doing long trips.

Most people don’t. She drives it to work and back which is about 30 miles a day. Again, if they do a trip they still have her husband’s car. He works from home so, really, the Tesla is their primary car 99% of the time.

Also, your link is referencing the Roadster which is a vastly different vehicle than the S.

There is a trade off considering the base price of the car. $52K isn’t what I’d consider a deal for a limited application car. I’d rather have a Smart Car that is a lot easier to park.

Hers was, all in, about $120K. One could buy 6 Smarts for that.

Two is all I’d need. One for each foot. I’d have a little trepidation about long trips and interstate touring.

I’ve driven them and I think a long freeway trip would be very exhausting.

But there is a tax break on electrics. Plus Obama is wanting to extend that to electric motorcycles. Imagine a Harley rider giving up his rumble for a hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

No wonder why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. All deficits are creation of the country. First they loot us and then come up with cuts.
