They got a half billion dollar loan to produce an electric car for the rich.
There was a man on 60 minutes last night who has an electric car ready to go into production and needs only $165,000 dollars.
His car, which is classified as a motorcycle, gets 200 miles per charge and seats two and would start at @25,000 dollars.
Our roads can handle the car, no traffic jams,and will progress with advanced features as the prices drop.
THAT is thinking ahead.
Where is Washington?
Evolution among all in the Peninsula seems to be going backwards while really UNconnected entrepreneurs are abandoned like this guy.The penINSULAR mindset is for those who think like an old MGM movie where people sit down like a family for a Sunday night family dinner. Lawyers will continue to multiply and games like golf will still attract retirees and memory lane mentalities, but the world is in the midst of a radical change where old ideas, large cars, and a ton of lawsuits will have an attorney making about as much as a doctor.
The most recognized catch phrase around is DEAD AS A DOLLAR.

Could be that none of you wish to address the issues I present and you call it bitching?
To the women out there. Isn't that being Chauvinistic?
Actually, it is embarrassing how little the inhabitants actually know about life outside of this area.
Do any of you take the time to bother how you fit into the scheme of a crumbling United States? I think not.

One and all, we encourage civil discourse on this site, and we really don't mind levity, even good-natured sparring. But can you avoid letting these conversations deteriorate into vulgar schoolyard taunts? Thank you.

I beg to differ with you, Ms. Batti.
I believe I am twice as polite to the people on this fine online discussion board.
You should limit the peoples entries to replies and not playing NANCY DREWS or THE HARDY BOYS.
I am not the one who said ASSHOLE.
