  • The Silliness Of Tesla's 10kWh Back-Up Battery [View article]
    "gas is a finite natural resource, the sun is not."

    Actually the sun IS a finite resource - just a very long lived one. Eventually it will burn out.

    There is no such thing as an infinite resource.

    " Gasoline cars are an "inferior good", in economic terms, which people only get if they can't afford an electric car."

    Oh Really?

    They why do electric cars remain a small fraction of the total number of cars sold in the country?

    If you think your electric car is so superior, try challenging someone with an internal combustion engine car to a race from New York to California and see who gets there first.

    The guy with the ICE car will be filling up his gas tank and getting on the road in about 5 minutes all along the way while you are cooling your heels waiting for your battery to recharge.

    I'll wait for my own mini-nuclear power plant to get installed as "standard equipment" for my house.

    It is typical of liberal loons to make claims that they aren't the least bit capable of actually proving.

    Electric generators are internal combustion engines.

    Do you need to "look at " the engine in your car every 8 hours?

    Why would he think a generator engine would need to be inspected more often than a car or semi-truck engine?

    Don't think that this is over with.

    Obama is determined to impose his ideology on the country by executive order, having his apparatchiks in the various government agencies "creatively" reinterprit laws and any other means he thinks he can get away with.

    "Yes, its called Keynesianism."

    Uh huh.

    That's what I thought you were going to say.

    Keynesian economic theory with it's magic multiplier effects has never been proven to have worked anywhere on earth it's ever been tried.

    Obama's so-called "stimulus' failed by the metrics it's proponents set for it.. Now as the economy started turning up years later, it's cheerleaders want claim that is the cause of it None of them are capable of proving it.

    Any more than they can prove FDR's "New Deal" saved the country from the Great Depression. Because it didn't.

    Really?

    The state governments of all 50 states have to balance their budgets.

    Perhaps you could elaborate on exactly what "Econ 101" principle would be violated by the federal government doing the same thing.

    Since there are no "special" principles of economics for government entities separate and apart from the same ones that apply to every other type entity.

    Blue - the main problem with that strategy is that the majority of the spending causing the debt increases are not considered part of the budget.

    So-called "non discretionary" spending on Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc are the main drivers of the increases in the national debt. The politicians have tried to absolve themselves for any accountability for what they have wrought in creating those programs by inventing a "non discretionary" category that is outside of what is considered part of the government's budget. The idea is preposterous on it's face. Congress controls ALL spending on everything and it certainly has the power to change it via legislation. There is nothing "non discretionary" about it.

    gggl, you forgot to mention that the bondholders were screwed by the Obama administration breaking the rules of bankruptcy succession to steal their share of the company to give it to the UAW in the first place.

    "Congress will be in no hurry to raise the federal government's borrowing limit, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told CBS' "Face the Nation" on Sunday, but will act in time to avoid Washington defaulting on its debt"

    Here we go with that "default on the debt" nonsense again.

    The federal government takes in more than enough revenue to pay debt service on Treasury bonds, bills and notes. All it has to do is prioritize paying that first before everything else. Refraining from paying anything else does not constitute defaulting on the debt.

    I wouldn't be too sure about that.

    There was a story the other day about where global millionaires are moving from and to.

    As I recall the number of them moving out of China to go somewhere else topped the list.

    Moving oil by pipeline is safer than moving it by tanker cars on trains.

    Do you dispute that?
