annfan, you continue to show your willful ignorance. It really doesn't matter who buys the Volt. Call them "whacko" environmentalists if it makes you feel better. But I'm confident you have no poll data to back up your claim. And why would you suppose I watch msn? I don't. What kind of irrational being confuses my reference to Forbes as evidence I get my info from msn? If you feel like wishing for the demise of GM is good PR for "conservative" ideology, great. Go with it. Just don't whine when patriotic Americans reject your ideology.

But then I'm not merely giving my opinion (which was the point that anyone could grasp). And you have demonstrated quite clearly that you can repeat propaganda which doesn't amount to anything.

Your opinion doesn't amount to anything. I mean, anyone can repeat propaganda.

Just because you're grossly misinformed and have had your head filled with sawdust doesn't make the facts "misleading". You've got NOTHING.

IOW, that's your opinion based on misleading data.

Those who prefer electric cars despite the fact that a) they are not cost effective requiring tens of thousands of doallrs in subsidy per vehicle, b) opperational costs exceed those of comparable vehicles given the life of the battery, c) they are worse for the environment given that they must be fueled by (largely coal generated) electricity, are still grossly inefficient and the disposal of the batteries is economically problematic. Being an enthusiast for something that is inferior to alternatives, costs more to own and operate and doesn't help the environment becasue one "cares" about the planet" is OBJECTIVELY described as "wacko" by pretty much any use of the term.

Get a clue.

When you objectively define what constitutes a "whacko" environmentalist maybe I'll take your theory seriously. Until then I'll consider it politically motivated spin.

Actually, YOU are the one showing willful ignorance. Numerous surveys show that "wacko" environmentalists (EV "enthusiasts") are overwhelmingly the buyers of the Volt (albeit even they have cooled in the wake of the probe into battery fires). CNW Marketing Research has performed a number of these surveys so your "confidence" is misplaced.

Again, no one has expressed a desire for GM's demise, albeit, economically, it would have been better had the company gone through bankruptcy and either failed (making room for a more efficient use of its assets) or addressed its financial problems rather than draining billions from the economy to keep the UAW aflaot.

Dear Comrade Boy Georgia,

You’re right about Obama wanting to bring taxes to historic levels, although like most liberals you don’t understand what you are saying. Still, rest assured, if you did understand what you said about taxes at historic levels, you’d be for that too.
