Colorado is now paying Tesla purchasers $42,000 to buy a $109,000 sports car. Imagine, if you can, being some poor schlub of a middle-class taxpayer in that fair state, struggling to pay for your kids’ college tuition, a mortgage, health insurance for the family and even, say food, all on a salary of maybe $65,000. Now your money is taken from you at gunpoint and handed over to a fat cat who can afford a two-seater electric toy. Are you happy? I wouldn’t be.

As an avid reader of your blog I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for a recommendation that you gave on your site.
I required my basement to be built out and my master bathroom renovated. Based on past experiences it never got past the wishing stage.
When I saw your recommendation of Mountain Works I thought that if your recommendation is a solid as the rest of your comments I should call them. Ferdinand called back the same day and we met within a week. To my pleasant surprise he showed up on time, which was a first for me. The next pleasant surprise was when I got his estimate and found out that he isn’t one of those contractors who double their price just based on my Greenwich address.
He handled all the permitting, started construction when he said he would, finished on time and within budget. Communication during the process was excellent and easy. Most of all Ferdinand was a pleasure to deal with.
Once again thank you and keep up the good work.
Just as soon as the subpoena’s are issued, Chris. Clinton used to do this very well, saying in effect, “Look, I’ve prevaricated and stalled for two years – this is old news!”. It worked for the boy from Hope, maybe not so well for the rat from Norwich.
The government taking over General Motors and Chrysler hasn’t worked out so well but surely it will do better running our banks as the next step in socializing the economy. Wall Street executives and even non-financial industry types like the CEO of Home depot are appalled but that doesn’t matter – it’s the popular thing to do. The Journal warns this morning that it sounds like the typical government intervention: both ineffective and harmful.
After he was elected I expressed the hope that Obama would get everything he asked for so that we could finally put to rest the idea that the government was a useful problem solver. That’s all coming true but now i fear pur country won’t survive the demonstration.
Business Insider: “Wait, maybe that positive existing home sales number was a total joke. Real estate analyst Mark Hanson thinks the NAR is cherry picking one dubious seasonally-adjusted number, while ignoring the real story.”
