I've pondered the administration's shakedown of GM to make them produce electric cars that no one wants for prices no one can pay unless the car and the buyer are heavily subsidized. I've also pondered the administration's alleged energy policies, in which Obama frequently announced that he was single-handedly going to kill off the coal industry. Coal provides 50% of electricity nationwide. Volts supposedly run on electricity. Seems to me Volts would depend on coal directly. Too bad the administration didn't do itself a real favor and plump for nat gas, which at last check was going for $1.25/gal. Even the stones in the street know the economy wouldn't be able to endure without coal. But no, Obama preferred ideology.
