Nobody cares about Tesla except the guy getting campaign donations from them.

We've given Tesla enough money to build their cars in Finland.

Let Finland buy the next round.

Nobody wants electric cars anyway, they don't sell.

It's just another green-energy black-hole like Solyndra that we keep dumping taxpayer's money into. They're gonna go belly up anyway, everybody knows it.

If they can't make it on their own we should let them collapse like Solyndra did but without giving all the lib execs the golden parachutes we gave Solyndra.

Maybe you should donate to keep them in business if you want but kindly leave the rest of us out of it.

Thanks ever so much.

Umm Tesla is made here in the USA and it's Fisker that is made in Finland on tax payer Obama green energy dollars..

    I can make a case for living in almost anywhere. Even the boring state of Iowa... :-)

     I see nothing in New Jersey, Mass and some of those crowded eastern states with screwed up politics. North Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma are boring, the communist State of Texas is boring and has messed up politics, and is ready to blow away in a cloud of dust when it's not flooding.  I can buy my Tesla in China, but I would have to jump through hoops in Texas......

    When I traveled to the East 5 years ago I swore never again!  Though Maine, NH, VT even some of NY have their appeal. California and Minnesota was off my good list, but it seems to have improved.

    Anywhere but next door to you.

        Here's where I would not want to go:

        Anywhere that has the initiative-crushing, creativity-destroying, freedom-limiting, liberty-denying, sloth-like, lumbering, centralized, massive, megalomonstrous mountain of soul-stifling, suffocating, oppressive, bureaucratic government clusterfluck like we have under our current administration in Washington DC.

        Here's where I would like to go:

        Anywhere God and His Son Jesus Christ can be worshipped and publicly acknowledged without some whining lib filing suit because him is OFFENDED. Where men marry only women and women marry only men and none of them kill their precious babies.

        Where a man can carry his gun and do anything else he wants to do as long as he's not hurting anybody without the whining weasels of the Left having hissy-fits or slimy, sniveling, government bureaucrats legislating against it.

        Somewhere politicians realize they work for us and not the other way around -- and act like it.

        Yeah, that's where I'd prefer to be, where a man is free and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights still mean something like they used to.

        But I don't think there's anywhere like that in this country anymore.

        And that's sad cuz it wasn't that long ago that we used to be free.

        Eekme & Rdg agree on somethings hehehe

              I Agree!

              A person could pick many worse states than Texas. Personally, I'm very happy here.

              Now, if we could just get the a..holes in Washington to stay out of our lives.

                LOL. Forgot to answer the question.

                California is the last place in the U.S. I would want to live.

                  They're both electric car companies that will be footnotes in ten years.

                  Let's just let 'em both die without dumping tons of money on 'em first in return for campaign donations to the DNC.

                  That's all I'm sayin'.

                    On a personal note, I gave this thread 5 stars, that was an accident, I was only looking to see who rated it and ...well the rest is history.

                        Every male I've ever seen driving a Prius is always a beady-eyed, weasel-looking, sniveling, Harry Reid type.

                        Real men drive pickup trucks.

                        And we spit tobaccy on girly-men in Priuses that are going slow in the fast lane as we pass them on the shoulder and flip 'em the bird.

                        That's just the way it is.

                            East St. Louis

                            Boy have you got that right, Toronto!

                            markp1950,

                            I'm not tooo sure about 'boring'. I lived in Jersey and worked in Manhattan, and lived and worked in Vegas, and in both of those places some people who lived there complained about "There's nothing to do." I really think being bored or not is up to the person.

                            As some sage said, "Bored people are boring people."

                            To answer the OP, besides Toronto's pick of East St. Louis, I wouldn't want to live anywhere the 'beautiful people' flock to.......South Beach Miami, the Hamptons, etc.....

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              Somewhere gated, with other wealthy people.
                              somewhere with less minorities and people asking me for spare change.
                              it especially pisses me off when they ask for spare change while I'm working.
                              Its like "f u dude. how you going to ask me for change when you see me out here working for pennies"

                              I need a big win bad. Im losing it

                              "Somewhere with less minorities..."

                               

                              Seems a bit racist or maybe I'm missing something here.
