    how many electric cars are selling; what percent of the market are they? what is the demand for these highly subsidized vehicles?

    Or were you asking about the chevy volt?
    got it in....... 5?

    Or those fools who bought all those ridiculously expensive handmade horseless carriages?
    yup. had they only waited for ole Henry Ford to come along they could have had a horseless carriage for much less.

    right now the "alternative cars" are a toy; much like the original cars. they are something for the wealthy to show off - but the demand and the price are not currently conducive for them to become a mass-transit vehicle.

    Eventually forcing the closure of hundreds of wagon and buggy whip shops.

    Which destroyed our economy and our country in the process.
    you know, it's hilarious, but this is the exact same example that Thomse Sowell uses when he destroys the argument that international free trade ("offshoring") increases unemployment.

    Can't we just agree that less pollution is a good thing? Global warming or not, if you think car exhaust is good, go breathe it for 5 minutes and tell me how that works out for you.
    CO2 increases plant-life, which in turn increases oxygen, which i like breathing.

    if you'll excuse me, i need to go turn on my car and let it idle for a while.



    okay, a bit tongue in cheek. but seriously - we're not dealing with the smog of the 1970s anymore. the "gains" in pollution reduction by switching to ecologically destructive batteries do not justify the loss.

    So it's been a tow edge sword.

    In order to make things affordable they killed their own business,and didn't even know it.

    I saw it coming years ago but like so many times no one was listening.
    Never let a bean counter run a Company or Corporation (unless it is in receivership and then when it is no longer in bankruptcy get rid of him.) If someone there other than the bean counters ran it I doubt they would have did what was done after Sam Walton's death.

    Most of the poor I know aren't that poor, and many choose to be poor. They didn't know they were choosing poverty, they just thought they were avoiding things like homework, paying attention in class, etc.
