"And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." -- no long form birth certificate -- Barack Obama, April 2, 2008

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." -- 1st President George Washington

Truth, Consequences, and Opinion TQO # 87


TQO # 87 - The absolute failure of Obama's Government Motors Volt

Only Obama's Government Motors would develop an electric car that stunk so bad, they had to throw a gas motor in it so it would not look like a total failure. After ingesting tens of billions of tax dollars, borrowed from China and Japan.

So, the Chevrolet Volt can go a whopping 40 miles between charges and costs $41,000+ AFTER even more government StimUwaste, I mean tax credits. When I heard it could only go 40 miles per charge I recognized that as insane because I know from our own commuting experience that would not be enough to get to work and back.

When designing this vehicle, which is a HYBRID, couldn't they at least Google Toyota?

Using the amazing power of the Internet and the words "average length consumer trip work miles" I was able to pull up secret research from 2005, on the 1st three pages, without using wikileaks!

BTW: I did not use the Volt wiki page, because it lies on figures. Then again, Soros who holds Obama's leash funds wikipedia. Do a Yahoo search using .edu to find the truth if these links are not enough.


Commuter Consumer - Washington Post

"About 3.3 million Americans travel 50 miles or more to work one way, according to the Travel Survey."

Workers' Average Commute Round-Trip-Gallup

"Gallup's annual Work and Education survey finds that American workers report spending an average of 46 minutes commuting to and from work in a typical day. Workers at higher income levels and those who work at least 40 hours per week tend to have longer commutes than others."


So, in another words, Government Motors comes out with an electric car in 2010 that when running on battery power could not even get 3.3 million people to work in 2005 one way.

Then the only ones that can afford it, are the ones that drive the most, and can't use it. That is government logic and design at it's finest!

Now, the Nissan Leaf

Nissan Leaf

It costs $8,000 less with the same tax credits, gets 100 miles per charge, and can also trickle charge on 120v anywhere so you are never stuck.

It is not mentioned, but, I am pretty sure with the proper cable you could fast charge it from the exterior electrical box from any house with an external A/C compressor too.

Now, let us see which would most consumers buy as an electric car, since the Volt is vastly inferior to the Toyota Prius hydrid in every aspect.

Toyota Prius

No one in their right mind would buy a Volt instead of a Prius, though I am sure a government worker or union member would.

Decision Point................ Nissan Leaf....Chevrolet Volt

Not owned by Obama.............Yes............no

OEM known for quality..........Yes............no

Base price after refunds.......$33,000........$41,000

Can make it one way to work

for 3.3+ million Americans.....Yes............no

Can make it round trip for

3.3 Americans in 2005..........Yes............no

Can make it one way on

battery 50 miles using the

A/C or heat....................Yes............no-no-no

About the only thing the macho Chevy Volt is good for is soccer mom and school kid delivery, as long as you do not get hit by the most popular vehicle on the road, the 5,000 pound Ford F-150.

The fact that a Volkswagon Jetta with a diesel and 5 speed gets better MPG, is cheaper to insure, easier to park, has a farther range, and you can replace the engine cheaper then the battery pack in the Volt, didn't discourage Government Motors from their design. Just like the government designers of the Yugo.

The Federal government is stuck in two wars longer then Vietnam, we still have 50,000 troops in Iraq getting killed, we are $14,000,000,000,000+ in debt, there is no money in Social inSecurity, there is no Federal Budget, and government motors produces a vastly inferior hybrid and vastly inferior electric car after tens of billions of tax dollars.

Now they are going to run health care with Obama Care, that should be another under whelming success in their eyes.

Obama's radical social agenda to destroy the USA is right on schedule. I already have Mao's little red book, maybe I can pick up a copy of Rules For Radicals in pocket size, that Obama taught, for when I get stopped by the Socialist Democrat Gestapo.

A white slave owner could feed his black man well, send his slave out hunting with a rifle, and to the local store while he kept his family hostage, and kept him ignorant about the word of God and how to read.

Then when the slave still tried to escape, the slave owner beat him and said "Look at all I have given you, you ungrateful heathen".

To be a free citizen

Frederick Douglass had white Christian brothers that bought his freedom for

a one time fee of $710.96.

Under SOCIALIST Obama Care, us white and black slaves to the government have to buy our freedom every month, under the IRS's tyrannical thumb or be jailed.

Well, I am going to do the same thing Frederick Douglass did to free his black brothers in the bondage of slavery.

Teach people the Bible

and how to read it.

Another John Brown trying

to free slaves of government

Still a Christian nation that loves God and Jesus!
