I'm not going to buy a Tesla

I was going to buy a Tesla this year, but i'm giving up on Musk and Tesla. I'm also influencing my friends to buy an electric car from another car manufacturer.

As NASA is planning for next year, I think.

3. Lucky for me I consider them severely overpriced

and get very crappy mileage.

Until an electric car can go more than a couple of hundred miles without needing a multi-hour recharge, I'll stick happily with my Honda Fit.

4. This is just depressing watching a fairly brilliant mind implode

under the weight of right-wing ideology. It is very much dividing the EV community. Those of us who, despite being Tesla owners, condemn Musk's remarks are now attacked as anti-EV, which is BS.

I had immersed myself in the renewable power/EV movement to get AWAY from toxic discussions of politics, and now Musk brings it into an area that was having great success despite well financed atroturf groups. Add in Michael Moore's hatchet job "Planet of the Humans" and we have just lost to decades of progress.

yes... Musk is a NAZI now...  :whatever:

As has been well documented, DUmp/liberal boycotts are so effective.  Chick-fil-A just became the 2nd largest fast food chain by revenue.  Fox News and Rush Limbaugh still have huge ratings.

It's also a fraction of the reliability, style, looks and comfort of a Tesla. But you get what you pay for and a fool and their money are soon parted.

Or actually have a current valid DL? Considering about 95% of the DUmp has lost them due to various DUIs and such.

and surprisingly Tesla's stock is up $11.00 a share from the day that samsingh made this proclamation.  I was expecting their stock to tank after such a bold statement was made on the interwebz.

I was going to buy a Tesla this year, but my welfare check isn't big enough.  My electric bill is 2 months overdue anyway.

From an NY Times column today:

Quote
Tesla Owners Try to Make Sense of Elon Musk's Red Pill Moment

A liberal status symbol now has a founder who is moving to the right. Owning a Tesla, a luxurious electric car, is a major liberal status symbol. It signals nothing more than good taste, the perfect balance of wealth and care for fossil fuels...

...

...

 :mental:

Just wrap your head around that text.
