Tag: Obama’s new job plan

HAH!

I am SHOCKED to learn that another green tech investment of the Obamanauts turns out to be yellow and a lemon:

Our Fisker Karma cost us $107,850. It is super sleek, high-tech—and now it’s broken.

We have owned our car for just a few days; it has less than 200 miles on its odometer. While doing speedometer calibration runs on our test track (a procedure we do for every test car before putting it in service by driving the car at a constant 65 mph between two measured points), the dashboard flashed a message and sounded a “bing“ showing a major fault. Our technician got the car off the track and put it into Park to go through the owner’s manual to interpret the warning. At that point, the transmission went into Neutral and wouldn’t engage any gear through its electronic shifter except Park and Neutral.

We let the car sit for about an hour and restarted it. We could now engage Drive and the same error message disappeared. After moving it only a few feet the error message reappeared and when we tried to engage Reverse the transmission went straight to Park and again no motion gear could be engaged. After calling the dealer, which is about 100 miles away, they promptly sent a flatbed tow truck to haul away the disabled Fisker.

We buy about 80 cars a year and this is the first time in memory that we have had a car that is undriveable before it has finished our check-in process.

Maybe this is all part of Obama’s new job plan, centered around the industry of recovering these and other $100K lemons and recycling them, and what will finally save the economy and the planet! This stuff can’t be made up. Too funny.

Better jobs plan!

This guy has a better jobs plan than that idiotic half a trillion dollar pork package that Obama is currently peddling. The same one that will later slam us with $1.5 trillion in new taxes affecting everyone including those millionaires making $200K or more as a family. It’s no surprise that Harry Reid could not even pass as originally written and had to modify the thing to include a “millionaire’s tax” to make it palatable to the class warriors. Of course, now they will fall far, far, short of the expected revenue they hoped to get. The dirty secret is that the collectivist will have to fleece everyone paying taxes to collect enough money to cover their spending. The rich don’t have enough for them to confiscate and keep the show going.

Anyway, it’s not as if that first trillion dollar plan they used to lard their friend’s & donor’s pockets, whom then in return larded their campaign coffers, for nothing as they still got hammered in the 2010 election, did anything but make things worse. Every freaking month they tell us things are getting better! Then the real numbers get released, and unexpectedly things are doing nothing of the sort. This month is no different. Unexpectedly! A few weeks ago they kept telling us things where finally great because the number was below 400K. Now we get the real numbers, and it is all bullshit. So why would anyone think this new costly behemoth of a plan was going to be better? Get rid of stupid laws and put people back to work! Pass the dorf!
