    The long awaited, highly touted, earth shaking, environmental juggernaut, and game changing Chevy Volt is shitting the bed in sales.......
    The VOLT was going to save GM, right? According to Obama it was. It was an integral part of his "new green economy". :lol: GM has only managed to move about 900 Volts since the big rollout. This seems to be the pattern with everything Obama touches - he's the anti-Midas.



    How nice. GM is talking about increasing production of this dog.....only a Government run entity would pursue such stupidity....

    New tech always takes a while to roll out.

    But then again..

    There's that old Conservative adage that goes..

    "If man were meant to fly..he'd have wings".

    Linux is free. They are a non-profit. GM only acts like a non-profit......

    Americans are genetically adverse to austerity, conservation etc. That is why Americans can not be trusted with money. Give an American $1000 in disposable income and s/he will uselessly waste more fossil fuels than the majority of the world's people consume.

    Americans want power, prestige, sex appeal, glorification of their ego.

    Getting from point A to point B is tertiary.

    You're kinda slow son.....Free Software Foundation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Linux is free and will always be free. Redhat is not LINUX.

    anyone can download Linux for free. It is freeware.
