    Ahh the upside of accepting those federal monies. - H/T Joan Fabiano

    Electric car owners now get to be free loaders as an additional benefit of purchasing the Leaf, Volt or other eco-recommended units of transportation.  As Part of the problem with EV solutions has been the short distances they can travel, the feds have made sure seed money is there for charging stations. 8-10 hours of charging can now happen at the I-75/Dixie Highway carpool lot.

    And by golly it appears as though there will be no charge for the juice.

    "Grand Blanc Township, which already pays for the electricity lighting the carpool lot, will cover the electric cost for the charging station as well. Coulomb Technologies, Inc. provided the electric charger station and the Grand Blanc Community Fund paid for its installation. The project was started with money provided through a federal grant. "

    So while we as taxpayers in general have shoveled out the taxes to pay for the incentives for the automakers ability to sell the over-sized and costly little rascals, then paid for the grant to fund the set up of this little pitstop, Grand Blanc Township taxpayers get to subsidize the electricity to run other folks' stuff.


    Huh, it sounds like a great campsite for RVs too.  Pack it up Good Sams, there's a new KOA in town.

    Yessiree, there is absolutely nothing that taxpayers shouldn't subsidize for the Obama Pinto loving herd of smug sheeple.

    And, let's not forget the $301,000,000.00 of our tax dollars handed over to the Koreans.

    Yep, only 5 current Republicans in Lansing can stand on high moral ground for being against $150M of our state tax dollars subsidizing GreenTard Korean batteries.

    Geez these people are dumb.

    Here we have a car that is completely devoid of economic viability, that was created entirely to help prevent a situation that is at most unsettled in the scientific community, that operates on a technology that is proven inefficient, and whose future prospects are so bleak that a significant portion of the drag must be absorbed by the taxpayers to perpetuate the madness.  

    We aren't even marching toward collapse, we're sprinting.  

    4.5% unemployment in South Dakota (none / 0) (#3)

    Which state has the lowest unemployment rate in the nation right now? South Dakota. (At 3.5%[correction is 4.5%]) And they're pumping oil at more than 200 rigs, with more waiting to come on line. There are currently more than 16,000 job openings posted, many of them in the above $100K range.

    Pennsylvania and Ohio aren't far behind, though the majority of those jobs are in the natural gas industry.

    Entire write-up here.

    Doesn't get much more GreenTarded than this.

    General Motors will buy Chevrolet Volts back from any owner who is afraid the electric cars will catch fire, the company's CEO said Thursday.

    In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, CEO Dan Akerson insisted that the cars are safe, but said the company will purchase the Volts because it wants to keep customers happy. Three fires have broken out in Volts after side-impact crash tests done by the federal government.

    Akerson said that if necessary, GM will recall the more than 6,000 Volts now on the road in the U.S. and repair them once the company and federal safety regulators figure out what caused the fires.

    Exactly two years on the market and all they could peddle is 6,000 units?
