just the facts

I wish someone smarter than me would put together a chart that compares Tesla to Ford, Gm, Toyota, Chrysler and Fisker. It would show bail out money, DOE loans and repayment, ev income tax credits used and any other pertinent info. I could print it out on a card and when I get the "enjoying the car Obama spent my tax dollars to help you buy" hand them the financial facts so they could check for themselves and not continue to spread lies because they are misinformed.

This would be great... and include a link at the bottom to a webpage with all the linkable references.

I haven't gotten any comments, yet.. but since I live in Texas, I'm expecting them.

Would be great to include some information on the benefit the ICE industry gets from billions in tax credits for oil companies, largely related to new drilling. Especially since anti-ev'ers point to wind and solar subsidies, which are dwarfed by big oil tax loopholes.

It won't have any effect. People who are this ignorant will never change their mind. They love to hate. They are the same people who listen to right wing propaganda and Fox News Channel.

Just walk away when you encounter one of these morons.

I had an argument with a moron on a forum who said the DOE loan was really a handout, because Tesla was an 'un-loanable' entity. I explained that no loan is a 100% guarantee, and that Tesla was going to pay back earlier than the term. He would not address those points, but said something to the effect that gas cars are actually cleaner because of some convoluted explanations, and that 'anyone can build a good product if they got 500 million and 'a lot of time' like Tesla has'.

I realized I was arguing a closed mind ( probably one of the Tea party type trolls) who will never see the facts. It's their ideology and in some cases, other, darker reasons.

I just ended up saying ' why don't you put your money where your mouth is, and short TSLA if you are so sure it's a loser!' . Of course, there was no taking up on that, obviously.

Arm chair critics, having absolutely no connection with the real world. THey have a big mouth, and a loud voice, but little grey matter between their ears.

These morons are suckers and so are their cars.

Watch Fox News, support Tea Party and taking delivery of my Model S Thursday. Just FYI

oops hit submit early.
I agree with you. Many people don't let the truth get in the way of their opinions.

N8Tyler - my hat is off to you:-) But I think you'd agree - you are in the minority amongst Tea party fans:-)

@joey

I appreciate your frustration, but keep in mind that the performance of the car and the company will speak more loudly than anything you can say or write.

People can say what they want; I shrug and watch my TSLA go up :)

Let them cheerlead the short interest... Help the squeeze run up to 200!

N8Tyler, congratulations on your new car! Once you start driving it, you might might just start hating the other petroleum based life-forms that share the road with you noisily. :-)

I appreciate your belief in the Tea Party - I myself am a staunch believer in Ayn Rand. However, what I am allergic to, are closed minds.
