    As usual your wingnut source is full of **** on the $250k per car claim.

    $250k Chevy Volt subsidy claim bogus says TheStreet.com

    Even better yet, your lefty car source says the actual math shows $500K per car, not the $250K cited....Yeah, that's better.

    Sure, if you don't understand what the author was saying you could come to that conclusion. Otherwise ... not so much.

    What makes the car site "lefty", btw? Can you cite the political content on their website?

    The fact that you posted it...You don't post anything that doesn't agree with your own ideology.

    One would hope for a base level of reading comprehension, but one appears to be overly optimisitic....

    I'd tell you something choice right here, but on open forum, I'd get suspended. Probably your tactic anyway....So let's see if you can figure it out....

    What I quoted in my post. Sorry, since there is no audio function at this forum, I can't read it to you. However, I'll give you a tip: Canada didn't sell China any oil, per se... China exercised an option to buy -- from a private Canadian company -- 60% of a particular oil field project that they already owned 40% of, which in total consists of about 4.5% (6,400 km2) of the total Athabasca Oil Sands field (141,0000 km2). Note that this information has already been posted in this thread (by me), and by the OP (in lesser detail).

    Furthermore there is no indication from anyone involved in the transaction that it in any way, shape, form, or fashion involved any progress or lack thereof of the Keystone XL pipeline. So, propaganda: a bit of truth -- sale of an oil field project -- is combined with a lie -- that it was sold because of Obama -- to make propaganda. Happy now?

    You see, to try and keep track of all the right wing propaganda would really require a dedicated staff and a separate forum -- so, best just to call it out when seen. Rational folk who are interested in, or familiar with, the facts will get it. The Kool Aid drinkers will not, since they are interested in an agenda, not facts. C'est la vie.

    If ever you find yourself in need of employment, the circus could sure use a contortionist.
