prudent investor newsletters: How Democracy Represents a Form of Socialism

Because even according to extremely right wing sources, Democracy represents a form of Socialism.

The United States is not a true Democracy. There are checks and balances that attempt to stop the tyranny of the majority.

The former head of the IRS visited the White House 118 times in 2010-11, but not once to the Cincinnati office. Wow.

Obama will no doubt answer with "I know nothing!"

With all these White House scandals, I'm surprised that no conservative has echoed Reverend Wright and said, "The chickens....have come home to roost!"

Tesla Repays Department of Energy Loan Nine Years Early

Only American Car Company to Have Paid Back Government

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

PALO ALTO, Calif.-- Tesla Motors announced that it has paid off the entire loan awarded to the company by the Department of Energy in 2010. In addition to payments made in 2012 and Q1 2013, today’s wire of almost half a billion dollars ($451.8M) repays the full loan facility with interest. Following this payment, Tesla will be the only American car company to have fully repaid the government.
Full press release here:
Tesla Repays Department of Energy Loan Nine Years Early | Press Releases | Tesla Motors

I think this car is immensely cool. Probably too big and heavy for me to ever own, but immensely cool.

I see quite a few of them in my area and if I was going to buy a luxury vehicle this is what I would buy. The build quality is amazing.

Hey, remember all those ads from GM telling us they repaid the government too?! And in that time Fisker has defaulted, Chrysler is now owned by FIAT, the unions (and us) own GM, and I'm stupid enough to try and build a car in California. Stoopid me.

edit: alsmost forgot--Jeeps are being made in China. Go Obama!

Default Shocking Red State / Blue State news

Texas, Red States Beat Blue States On Jobs, Growth In Past Decade - Investors.com

"...The study supports other research that found states with lower taxes and less regulation outperformed those with higher taxes and more regulation.

It also undercuts a key premise of President Obama's economic policies. During his last presidential campaign, Obama said there was no evidence that lowering taxes and reducing regulations would improve growth and prosperity...."

Now I know where my fear of bridges since I was a toddler is rooted.
