And you'll note that they made money because the stock spiked. Not because the company is healthy.

Forgoing comments about evil wall street capitalists.
The ONLY people in this economy right now are gov't parasites and the Wall St types and idiot libs think it's great.

Well, yeah. They've hitched their looting wagons to the govt spigot. The idea of self-reliance is some sort of propaganda scam to them. Ideas like honor or integrity are tricks made up to fool people to them. The decent are derided and the criminal are cheered. Funny because they thought they were the new generation that was going to create a wonderful world of tolerance and equality.

I'd rather have Nixon back. Agnew was small change compared to the current Adminstration. Obama and his sycophants get to join ranks with Wilson, FDR, LBJ and Carter.... our most destructive Presidents.

It is out of reach for the average consumer yet the average taxpayer is subsidizing it and you think that's a good thing.

Amazing.
What's truly amazing is how consistently wrong you are about virtually everything.

A couple months ago you declared Tesla dead and buried. Yet here they are, outselling the competition with a car that's won awards and/or top ratings from everyone from Car and Driver to Consumer Reports.

You wail incessently about the evil government using "your" money to invest in future technologies, yet here is Tesla, creating jobs, building a whole new transportation paradigm, and they paid back every cent of the loan they got to get started. Oh, but HOW they paid it back...well that's just not good enough for 'ol Buzzly. I'm sure it doesn't bother you when you get dividends paid for with stock price increases, now does it?

"Oh waah, the batteries are a nightmare...they'll clog the landfills and cost more than the car to replace." Except the car makers recycle them and their replacement cost is about the same a rebuilding a transmission.

"Oh waah, the range isn't good enough." Except it's now almost 300 miles and recharge stations are going up everywhere.

"Oh waah, the buyers get a tax credit." GM and Chrysler got multimillion dollar bailouts just to stay in business. So what? Aren't enough Americans out of work yet to suit you?

"Oh waah, the cars cost too much." Do you think everybody could afford gas cars when they first came out? No. The first cars were only for the wealthy, but they got cheaper over time. News flash: EVERY new technology is expensive at the start, then the prices go down. That's why a pocket calculator cost $400 in 1973, and now they cost $15...or less.

I think we buried Fiskar KMo.

At least you're admitting in the Obanomy that the only people who can stay in business need taxpayer money. A guess a trillion and a half piled onto the debt every year is a good thing.

Once the subsidies run out, if Tesla is still selling cars at a decent clip I'll eat my words.

10,000 cars is still just a specialty market.

Why waste time arguing with a looter?

An incredibly profitable "specialty market." That's why those smart guys st BMW, Mercedes, and Audi fight so hard to keep their share of it.

So your signature achievement for Zero is a billionaire gets a 500 million dollar loan to sell cars to millionaires who get another ten grand from the taxpayers to buy it.

Plutocrat.

No, that would be Obamacare, possibly ending the wars, recovering our image abroad, or maybe ending the Bush recession. It's hard to pick when there's so many great choices.
