You may think I'm exaggerating, but what else do you call a company that is largely supported by government programs, and requires you to pay up front for a car you may never get?

No such company in America.

What do you call a company whose innovations will make the cost of energy almost zero, clean up pollution, and put the Saudis in BK?
Answer: Tesla.

The Tesla fanboys aren't going to like this...

Elon Musk's growing empire is fueled by $4.9 billion in government subsidies.

And he's built those companies with the help of billions in government subsidies.

We got our money's worth, plus a lot more. Musk deserves another $10 billion in subsidies.

I don't think anyone 'deserves' subsidies. In the case of green/sustainable energy, I think it's been acceptable to help that industry out too level the playing field, but we're reaching an inflection point where solar cells, electric cars, and other green tech are approaching cost party with their non-green counterparts. When that day actually comes the subsidies need to go away and the market should be allowed too decide.

Same goes for oil companies etc. who receive the equivalent of government subsidies in the form of tax breaks. It's all bullshit corporate welfare. Lightly regulated markets are the best way of deciding what's best..


Oil companies have been receiving subsidies for ever. What a waste.

I've been tooling around for the past few years in an EV that has only 80 miles of range. I have over 50,000 miles on the clock. It costs me less than $30 a month to drive ~1,000 miles. I've never been inconvenienced, in fact the opposite... I've never had to visit the dealership once -- no dealing with rentals/loaners, no constant internal combustion engine component issues/service schedule. Only maintenance I've done is a few sets of tires and replace the windshield washer fluid. And it's fast too.

I recently got an Audi S8 as a second car, I drive that for 2 or 3 days and it's $75. I'm never going back to daily driving a gas car.


Don't you care for the oil companies? The Saudis? After all they they done for you all these years, you are gonna dump them? You are so ungrateful.

Plus, your $30/month number is a subsidized number.

Thank you for your contribution. It's appreciated.

Where's the electric coming from and who paid for the infrastructure to make it, produce it and deliver it?

28% came from coal and falling. We all paid for the infrastructure. Utilities love electric cars, as it's a new source of revenues for them, especially since most charging is done at night when there is no demand for electricity.

How is his electricity is more "subsidized"
than yours? Payments for generation and delivery are all rolled into the kWh rates we pay. Only low-income people have these subsidized. I doubt any of us quailify as such.


Utilities provide cheap electricity at night when their plants are idle. Utilities love it.

No demand for electricity at night?? Really?

No one has a fridge, turns their lights on, runs their A/C, cooks dinner, washes clothes, heats their water, watches TV etc. at night? California is completely dark at night, except for electric cars being charged?

Wow, I never knew that.


I lied. Very little demand for electricity.

No one is bringing up the cost per mile for fuel.
Around 3 cents per mile average for electric cars. 15 cents for gasoline cars. Highway and city combined.
The savings on fuel and maintenance are extraordinary.

I plug in my car at night


What about if you drive more than 80 miles during the day. Plus, you have to go through 4 - 5 charging cycles to equal my range, where it takes me 5 minutes to fill up. How many hours does it take for 5 charging cycles?


Most new electric cars are now in the 200 miles + range. They can charge within minutes with DC charging.

EVs are unknown to me, I can’t fix electric motors. Plus they are twice as expensive. I’m sure they are nice cars, but price is too high.


Tesla's are expensive. The rest of the EV's work out cheaper. Just do your homework.

what happens when the Batteries stop holding a charge? Those batteries will be $10K a pop. It's amazing how many partisan hacks still believe in Musk and Tesla, they want to believe there is an affordable all electric car, being made in a company that has no production issues, by AI robots from 100 years into the future. The reality wont hit them until they have to plop down 10K for a new battery.


What happens when your transmission breaks, or your engine throws a rod, or your timing chain snaps? All massively expensive repairs for cars that just happen. Focusing on an EV's batteries is just cherry picking.


The battery packs are guaranteed for 8 years, 100K miles with full replacement, not pro rated. Engines are not guaranteed that long, and need constant maintenance.

People just didn't buy the cars.


Really? Last time I checked they didn't have overproduction problem: whatever they manage to churn out is immediately delivered to a paying customer. Their car are definitely not gathering dust on dealer lots. They don't even offer leases on Model3.


I've been waiting 2.5 years for the Model 3. I'm still waiting. They just cant keep up with demand.

But all the fanboys keep quacking on and on about oil changes, gas and regular maintenance on a conventional car, but ignore the $10K gorilla in the room (the battery pack) that will need to be replaced. That, plus the double cost of the original EV pays for a hell of a lot of oil changes, gas and maintenance on a normal car.

Funny, the Tesla fanboys sound just like the Apple fanboys...


Hey, that's true. The fanboys know a good thing when they see it.
The battery is guaranteed for 8 years, 100K miles. They have had very few battery failures. By the time one fails out of warranty, the battery pack will cost 80% less.

Over the past year, very few houses sold in our hood. Now suddednly, a bunch of houses are selling AND people are moving out and prepping to sell. We went from zero to a dozen houses for sale.


It's just gentrification. The poorer and retired move out, while the rich move in.

Why are they extremists? Why is the statue offensive? It's no different than any other belief, where one man's religion is another man's devil.

I suppose next you are going to bring up the 'subsidies' of military domination of the Middle East?

Funny, the US doesn't get its oil form the ME...except for Bat Shit California...but that is California's choice.

The US is or is close to being a net oil producer right now.


True, but oil companies still receive subsidies. Why shouldn't clean energy and electric cars?

The utter refusal of devout Muslims to adopt the customs (or even obey the laws) of the countries they want to immigrate to should indeed be a disqualification for citizenship in the West. Good on the Swiss.


True Muslims cannot, will not, and won't integrate. Only those Muslims who completely reject Islam should qualify for Citizenship.

From the article:

"In 2016, there was national uproar over revelations that a middle school in the north of the country had allowed two Syrian brothers not to shake their teachers' hands after they complained that doing so was counter to their religious beliefs if the teacher was a woman."

They won't hesitate to rape women and take them as slaves, but shaking a hand is not Islamic.

If I had a dollar for every thread about how there are a bunch of for sale signs up in my neighborhood since 2012, I'd be a rich(er) man. Yet, somehow despite all these for sale signs, housing prices have gone up every year.


You would be a lot richer if you had a dollar for every offer that was made on each of those homes.

Guys, house in our mid peninsula neighborhood hasn’t moved after several weeks on the market! Asking price is within comparables. One offer $200k below asking, which wasn’t accepted.

Has hell frozen over or is something cooking?

Over the last several years, absolutely everything put on the market here has sold immediately after the first open house.

I notice a slowdown in the zip codes I follow in So Cal too. It's anecdotal, but I have been noticing that for the last 2 months. July housing data may be worse than June, but median prices will be higher.

Once again America gets the blame.
The Saudis killed the children, yet no criticism of the Muslims. It's all our fault.
When Syria killed a bunch of children with Russian weapons, it's us who get criticized. We are the bad guys.
When Pakistan kills children in the pursuit of terrorists, it's our fault because we are responsible.
When Russia killed innocent citizens by mistake, there is hardly any criticism of Putin.

When Israel goes after terrorists hiding in schools, the Israelis are murderers.
When we go after cold blooded ISIS killers to stop Yazidi women from rape and enslavement, and a kid dies, we are the evil murderers.

I'm getting sick and tired of fucking CNN and their pathetic attacks against us, while making out Muslim terrorists as the victims. Dirty rotten CNN traitors.

They wren't blowing each other up (most were killed in battles not suicide bombings but hey nice bit of meaningless hyperbole ) before we fired 500,000 Iraq soldiers then told them they couldn't work anywhere but didn't take away their guns and ammo first. Duh, what could possibly go wrong? The stupidest decision in US history. Good thing smarter people were in charge in 1945.


LOL. So if Muslims lose their jobs and can't find work, they will start killing each other if they have nothing else to do. I totally agree.
And it would be our fault. ROFL ROFL. I agree with that too. We should know by now that Muslims are inherently violent, and need to be controlled, and not have access to guns. Now you know why Iran should not be allowed to have nukes.

Remember when the Charlie Hebdo cartoons were published? The Afghans went berserk and started killing each other. If there were Christians around, they would have been the first to go. Now you know why there are hardly any infidels in Islamic countries. They were the first to go.
