Got my 3 Sept 1. It's all over for these guys.

Periodically drive my Bolt, and am pleasantly surprised at what a nice car it is to drive (besides the cardboard hard uncomfortable seats), but it can't really go anywhere.

Early adopters will put up with that. Early majority, the buyers that matter, will not.

Big auto can not deliver, and will not be able to deliver for another 10 years.

Most will not make it that long.

"Dinosaur says " ignore that Tesla shaped asteroid heading this way.""
Dinosaur says " ignore that Tesla shaped asteroid heading this way."

" But when asked about electric and autonomous vehicles becoming an important part of GM’s business financially, Abelson said that they don’t expect things to change soon (via Detroit Free Press):
“The core business is going to be the core business for a couple of decades to come,”
And he even added:
“There will not be any AV/EV pickups.”
Abelson’s comments appear to be consistent with GM’s view on electric pickup trucks. "

" We need more people working on big problems. Start a company with an insanely ambitious mission and don’t stop until you achieve your goals. Too many smart, creative people are sitting on the sidelines critiquing heroes rather than trying to be one themselves. "

Wow. Can't wait for this to conclude.
Great thread!!


"The actual story of what happened during the 2016 election is becoming clear:

The Hillary Clinton campaign decided to play a political dirty trick on the Trump campaign by hiring political operatives to invent a 'Trump/Russia collusion' narrative that would be sold to the media

To hide the fact they'd hired political operatives at a firm called 'Fusion GPS' to create fake info tying Trump & his campaign personnel to Russia, Hillary Clinton & the DNC used the law firm of Perkins Coie as a middle man to launder the money & wash their fingerprints off.

With Hillary & DNC's $, Fusion hires Christopher Steele, who begins compiling a dossier of Trump campaign/Russia allegations based on stories supposedly told to him by shadowy, anonymous, still unknown Russians inside Russia [or so the story goes], some in the Russian gov't.

Fusion GPS head Glenn Simpson & Steele then begin going around to the US news media outlets & shopping the dossier allegations. Several of these outlets, such as Mother Jones & Yahoo News, print stories including some of the allegations.

Now, if this had all stayed at this level, if all that had been done was paying political operatives to invent a smear that was then planted in DNC Media to create a narrative to try to damage the Trump campaign, that'd be bad enough, but all it'd be is dirty politics/Fake News.

But here's where the streams crossed. Political partisans inside the DOJ/FBI were 'read in' to the Steele dossier - on which Nellie Ohr was working - through her husband Bruce Ohr. Bruce Ohr met extensively with Simpson/Steele & took copioius notes.

These political partisans inside a weaponized DOJ/FBI were already looking for an 'insurance policy' to ensure Trump didn't win the 2016 election, and if that failed, to ensure he could quickly be removed from office or at least sabotaged into being ineffective.

Somebody had a 'eureka' moment: send confidential intel assets to the Trump campaign pretending to be Russian agents offering illegal help to win the election.

Then use these contacts to BOLSTER the Steele dossier & get a FISA warrant to spy on Trump.

This is what the redacted portions of the Carter Page FISA warrant are going to show, IMHO: Halper, Mifsud & Downer were working with the CIA/FBI as intel assets sent to entrap the Trump campaign by pretending to offer Russian info to low level Trump campaign staff like Page.

When that happens, the fake narrative that any of these men were real Russian foreign agents working for Putin's gov't reaching out to collude with the Trump campaign to steal the 2016 election is going to let out a loud shriek and give up the ghost at last.

So let's all enjoy watching the last few days that the True Believers have left as they watch their Trump/Russia Election Collusion narrative take it's last struggling breaths.

" He is under attack. For tweeting the wrong thing, for not making enough cars, for appearing unstable. Some of the criticisms have merit. Much of it is myopic and small-brained, from sideline observers gleefully salivating at the opportunity to take him down a peg. But what have these stock analysts and pontificators done for humanity?

Elon Musk is an engineer at heart, a tinkerer, a problem-solver—the kind of person Popular Mechanics has always championed—and the problems he’s trying to solve are hard. Really hard. He could find better ways to spend his money, that’s for sure. And yet there he is, trying to build gasless cars and build reusable rockets and build tunnels that make traffic go away. For all his faults and unpredictability, we need him out there doing that. We need people who have ideas. We need people who take risks.

We need people who try. "

Hysteria hurts credibility everywhere...
History of wrong climate change predictions. For example Al Gore said by 2013 the North Pole would be ice free by 2013.
