    [Chevy Volt Village. Naturally Obama's using your tax dollars to pay for it. This is something he'll unequivocally be able to say "You didn't build that" about. Sorta reminiscent of the Soviet style communes FDR and his Commie lovin "Brain Trusters" threw up all across the US in the 1930's, especially the American Southwest. God, the similarities between what went on then and today just gets more striking day by day what with the twelve year Great Depression and all going on then and the heck of a start Obama has on another one today. Hey, Lizzie Warren (CAND D-MA) often referred to coloquially as LieaWatha, might even be able to create her own faux Indian village in one o these. Those "High Cheekbones, yano.]

    "The dangerous, unloved, taxpayer-subsidized debacle of a 'green' experiment known as the Chevy Volt is now being featured as the centerpiece of still more taxpayer-subsidized, anti-free-enterprise enviromento-social engineering: a low energy residential project touted as a new kind of 'Smart Community'.

    'Pecan Street' is a project in Austin, Texas, and known unofficially as 'Chevy Volt Village' at GM and the US Energy Department, which now chipped-in $10.4M in taxpayer money in-addition to all the bailouts, grants, $7500-per-customer government retail subsidies and Soviet-style central-planning that made Government Motors' overpriced, plug-in-P.O.S. possible in the first place.

    GM is calling the 700-acre Texas community 'the largest concentration of Chevy Volts in the world'- I guess they're not counting the 6000 unsold ones sitting in some gravel parking lot in Detroit (!) Perhaps this fleet-like sale can help them clear some of those out"

    It's called "Channel Stuffing" and it's what GM does to artificially inflate sales numbers.

    Ho Hum.

    This could go on and on but it gets redundant, much like the OP.
