    Ford Will Crush Tesla With Electric F-150, Jim Cramer Says

    Well... the Mach E didn't exactly 'crush' the Model Y or Model 3. I think the Ford might outsell the Cybertruck in some markets/segments. Lotsa 'redneck' truck owners that wouldn't buy a Toyota pickup even though it might be better than the domestic... those same people probably wouldn't get...

    'Big Short' investor Michael Burry says the Tesla boom is 'remarkably similar' to the dot-com and housing bubbles

    There were lots of shorts that died at the 'valuation alter' when looking at Amazon, too. Disrupting companies can't be compared to standard companies.. This statement also sounds a bit desperate since anyone looking at the technology sees Tesla as years ahead of it's competition. 'Burry has...

    Ego Zero Turn Mower

    Was looking at them, but with only a 42" cut, it just isn't big enough. Went with a JD instead.

    That's a great question and one that I believe should be studied. There was a study not long ago that indicated Americans pay more than 50% of there income in some sort of tax - income tax, death tax, sales tax, property tax, etc... I'm not sure if those same things apply in those countries...

    I guess the question might be what does it cost? A worker in my office has a sister that moved to Denmark to complete her masters. It's at no cost to her. Now that she's finishing up, I asked if she was coming home or staying in Denmark with her boyfriend... the answer was that she likes it...

    I'd have to disagree again. It is no myth that I can switch gas stations, electronics suppliers, mobile carriers, grocery stores, etc. Roads and water suppliers (which are handled by government-like entities) is a straw-man argument. If it costs you money to switch your insurance carrier, you...

    " No. More choices is not always better. And it's perpendicular to whether something works or not. A private investment is managed for the benefit of its managers, not its customers. A democratic government is beholden to its customers, the voters. " Couldn't disagree more. As a business...

    Tesla WON | CAN’T be copied or caught, and are speeding up !!!! GAME OVER

    This wasn't so hard: (on communism/China) The government of the People's Republic of China (Chinese: 中华人民共和国政府; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó Zhèngfǔ) is collectively the state authority in China under the exclusive political leadership of...

    Tesla WON | CAN’T be copied or caught, and are speeding up !!!! GAME OVER

    How about all long term politicians are corrupt! There is too much money in politics, leading to corruption. Lets get the money out of politics (term limits, no family employees, remove immunity, make them have the same retirement and insurance, etc) and we should see a change. Anyone that...

    Metal roof rather than glass on the Cybertruck

    This seems like a square peg/round hole issue.

    If you have the cash, should you buy or lease?

    I don't think the Tesla leases allow you to buy at the end? I think they always take the vehicle back. At least, when I looked at a Y, the lease did not have a buyout, if I recall correctly.

    Ram electric pickup truck coming

    Actually planning an Alaska back country trip where there will be no charging... the Jeep might be the next best option... except, of course, if I go with the 'generator dilemna' :)

    Cybertruck Livability

    I've had trucks and jeeps with 35" mud tires and they are anything but quiet. But, with the thick glass and no engine noise, plus the heavier metal body, I'm hoping it will be. I'll be curious to see the final tire design choice. Since I won't be using it for off-roading (much), I prefer a...

    GM to launch Hummer EV with splashy World Series and social media ad blitz next week

    I'm very curious to see it. I like the open top option -- kinda Jeep like and had one of those for 7 years.
