And $20 million is pocket change to him - no worst than a speeding ticket to the average person.

True! But what's worse, is that money you deposit in a bank gives the bank rightful ownership. After that, you must trust them to give it back to you on demand, as trust is all you own.

Fiat Money is all trust with nothing behind it , backed by the Faith and Credit of

the issuing agency , what could they pay you back with , more DEBT. You have

to play the game but keep your real money in HARD ASSETS .

No that is not what it says. However, if you believe that then it is not a lie (thx George Costanza).

Meanwhile back at the ranch... Ford and Chrysler each made just under 200,000 deliveries for the month of September. Tesla really outdid themselves, yes... you said a mouthful when you said you can’t sell what you can’t build. Someone get me some Advil... Barney, you make my head hurt.

Maybe my eyes just ache from seeing so many Tesla’s on the road today.

8 empty chargers this morning at the Tannersville outlets. EZ off EZ on access from I 80.

In all fairness I do see a Tesla every now and then in NJ and southeastern PA. I can honestly say I now have more Tesla sightings than Oscar Meyer wienermobile sightings.

and zero Bolts ... I am sure that depreciation issue will hurt a lot more soon. Fuel prices are not and never have been the main issue.

https://community.oilprice.com/topic/3685-chevy-b ... d-quarter/

I passed 27 Mustangs on my way to Shoprite. The Erie cocktail set would not be impressed as I am clearly not a society leader.

American muscle is back -- you gotta love that one. Psst, I just thought I would add that if you can deal with a 2 seater + , the 2018 Mustang GT with PP is the best car ever made period, even for an old fart. Impressive technology gains in every area. ICE technology is not standing still waiting for EVs to take over.

Rural America does not need EVs. If you live in city, you do not need a car at all ... call Uber/Lyft. Rent a car now and then when you need it. THAT is the way to save the planet and reduce your footprint.

Psst Ford, the world will not need that many autonomous cars. What a bunch of numb nutz. Henry must be turning in his grave.

That's because when you get right down to it, the Bolt is merely a $38,000 evolution of the Aveo. I'll admit that they've put a lot of lipstick on it in addition to the electric motor, but the back in late 2005 my wife and I bought "his and hers" 2006 Aveo's for $8,760 apiece.
