One of my history professors in college was a Marine and a Vietnam Vet. Needless to say, he did not have too many kind words about LBJ. In fact, he never called him LBJ or President Johnson, it was always Lyin' B*stard Johnson.
223 hours in a month is a few hours? You must work for the government, where they spend a few billion here and a few trillion there...
I know I shouldn't feed the trolls, but I can't resist. $21,234 / $83/hr = 255.8 hours. More than 8 hours per day, every day of the month. So much for "just working...for a few hours".

And my neighbor's sister's best friend's mailman's mother-in-law's hairdresser's daughter's teacher's cat just bought an Audi from the money they earned walking across the computer keyboard while my neighbor's sister's best friend's mailman's mother-in-law's hairdresser's daughter's teacher was sleeping.
Obama has one too. Not exactly stellar company.
Obama seems to like to use the phrase "Change my Calculus". Am I the only one that thinks that, if not for the Teleprompter of the United States telling him to say that, he wouldn't even know what Calculus is? I find that entire rationale very derivative (sorry for the math pun, but I couldn't help myself).
The above is a comparison with the Prius C. I didn't make that clear.
Only th ebaseline Prius was available while I was shopping for the car. I love my Rio. 5 years, 102,000 miles. Only standard maintenence needed. My driving has changed to mostly highway driving lately, and my mileage is currently 36-37 mpg. This would lead to a break even point (with gas at $3.50 per gallon) of 447,000 miles. At 20,000 miles per year it would take 22.35 years to make up the difference. Still not worth it. If the cars lasted that long, that would require 3 battery replacements, which blows the business case out of water.
The extension of the law makes it so that it now covers those between 15 and 18 years old. The law does not apply once both people in the relationship have turned 18.
When I was in the market for a commuter car, I compared several cars, including hybrids and electrics. I was looking for a cheaper car that would get me to and from work with the lieast trouble and cost. I settled on the Kia Rio ($11,500), which was advertised at 32mpg city (I get 35 by short shifting with the manual transmission). The Prius ($27,000) was advertised at 47mpg city. If I could actually get this out of the Prius (our friends get about 42mpg), based on current gas prices, it would take over 30 years ($15500/.$.03 per mile difference in operating cost = 607,000 miles) to make up the difference between that the list price for each car was. I know I could choose a cheaper hybrid, but the current hybrids we not available when I was looking to purchase in 2008. I don't know about you, but I'm not planning on keeping a commuter car until it qualifies for antique plates.
