I actually saw a real Checy Volt in the wild this morning. I followed it for
about 4 miles on the way to work. No flames were observed. And there is
actually someone driving a Nissan Leaf to where I work - but then we have
several charging station in one of the lots. Almost makes me want to get an
electric car so I can get free electricity.
GE didn't pay taxes as it had capital losses from other years and it
didn't make that much money in USA at all, in fact many operations lost
money. You pay income tax on net income. No income, no taxes. Yes,
you lose a $billion a year ago, you can make a billion this year and pay
no taxes as in net, you made no money.
Liberal-colonialists skip this fact.
But greed killed the goose, GE Medial is moving to China. No reason to
pay liberal-socialism DC greed taxes on items made in China, uses
Chinese materials, sold in China, serviced in China.
The only part of GM with any real value is GM China. But not sure how
they are doing in the largest world market for autos.
Corrupt USA, Euro Bank and Military Regime, funding both sides of
terrorism for profit and debt-tax slavery.
A company decides to change *its own* fleet-vehicle purchasing policy.
It's their money, they can do whatever they want with it. It can be for a
myriad of different reasons and there's nothing inherently wrong with it
if it's only to install more of their own charging stations.
Of course GE wants to advance its charging station business. Do you think
that, say, Lutron uses other brand's switches in their building (if it has
a choice) or Cisco uses Avaya's phone system in their offices? Or, for
that matter, WM uses a different waste management services at their
facility? It's pretty normal, so why has the word "forcing" been used here
other than to incite a misplaced outrage?
In fact, I think that GE would have preferred to get Nissan LEAFs instead
(because they would spend even more time at their charging stations and so
they'd need more of those) but decided to go with an American manufacturer
