Well I figured since I was probably the only one here who had driven one I would editorialize on the performance. Turns out there was two of us. We understand the right only likes fossil fuel cars. That's fine for you.

To me it's a fun toy. It hauls ass and I have never driven a faster street car. You would have fun driving it.

I'm yet to get one of my guns subsidized by the government. Have "fun" on your own dime.

Wow, Try to cheer up. You are always so grumpy. Fuq a gun. Government money is spent on weapons research I'm sure. Electric cars may be the future. Who knows. You got your money back and can still shoot people if you want to.

If you do something to get on the wrong end of it you will know exactly why. Unless you plan on robbing me or taking my rights away you don't have much to worry about unless you think you are going to be reincarnated as a clay pigeon.

I don't feel all that cheery when people like you are doing all they can to increase our debt to the tune of 16 trillion and counting with your bullsh*t subsidies.

An electric car that is pretty much worthless to the average driver and costs a 100k with government handouts isn't the future.

The future is the XL pipeline and drilling the supplies we have to keep us going for the next 150 years with proven reserves. 150 years is a long f*cking time for you to use private funding in making electric cars f*cking work.

Never stole anything in my life except half a cheese cake (I was supposed to pay full price as an employee and I didn't-I still feel guilty over that.)
Just dont take your guns to the polling place where I exercise my rights and we'll be fine.

Truly , no offense meant , but that was a Sky Dancer type statement .
Why would you object to a person owning a weapon,especially when you know nothing about them ?
That would be like Me saying you're a totally reactionary Liberal that wants to destroy my liberties .
