  •  electric cars! Electric cars are good (9+ / 0-)

    Muskegon and many other cities around America just got electric car charging stations installed on the Federal bill in anticipation of more electric cars from the Nissan Leaf to the Chevy Volt...

      here recently were like a trolls digest of anti electric car screeds...combined with a pro Volt anti Leaf subtext.

      They did forget "It won't tow my boat'.

      There was a Viper (ugh) in a parking garage here in sunny santa barbara
      ( free from Lake Effect snow)
      (in western NY we got over 100" a year, I loved it...then when I didn't have to pay for it)
         ... and near it was a really good looking Orange car, sleeker and simpler and more purpose driven (heh) than the big ass ugly -Viagra- Viper....it was a Tesla.

      Does this rec make my head look fat?

        If your live totally unfolds within 50 miles of your home, or you can afford two cars - one city, and one highway - the Leaf is useless.  It is great for urban dwellers who usually don't own a car and rich people seeking toys.  As far as the Tesla, it is a rich man's toy.

        Your comment is off subject, counter productive, and tasteless.

        What we need is a Democrat in the White House.

        completely. But there are sides to every equation. Consider that car is running off of coal energy and will someday create a lot of hazmat to clean up. Everything has a cost.

        Voters will choose a person who fights a losing battle for his principles over one who fights winning battles against them every time.
