    My youngest son got a job before graduating college. He has been there 4 years and got a good promotion. His bonus last year was $30,000. He has over $375,000 net assets and isn't even 27 yet. He owns 2 cars paid for and a 2 family home. The first floor rent covers the mortgage and he has roommates where he occupies the 2nd and 3rd floor. He has 1700 sq ft on those 2 floors. So his transportation is paid for and his housing is free. I think his base salary is around $150k plus stock and bonus. Youngest daughter working as chemical engineer making close to $100k but she spends way more than my son. Son plans on being financially independent after working 10 years. Maximizes his savings, retirement, and wealth, and minimizing his taxes. All his accomplishments are his to take credit for. No handouts from the parents. But he is a rare case and exceptional person. In the 70's any person that wanted to work hard could prosper without college.

    I guess there was more to it than finding a job and buying things for cash. We had jobs since we were small. Everyone of us had paper route that got passed from kid to kid. In those days you had to purchase the paper route. You were a business man. You bought the papers and it was your responsibility to collect from your customers. I had a morning and afternoon route. We cut grass and shoveled snow and raked leaves. Once 16 people worked. My mother made sure that money was saved. In 1970 a brand new C10 was less than $2,000 so all those years of work and savings made purchasing a vehicle possible. Houses cost less than $30,000 so with a small downpayment you were a homeowner. Two of my brothers purchased 2 family homes and lived on one floor and rented the other. As mentioned one brother still lives in the home he purchased when he was 18.

    Back in the early 70's all my older brothers purchased homes prior to age 24. 2 of them purchased brand new half ton trucks one Chevy one Ford and paid cash. Everybody worked menial jobs. One brother purchased his home when he was 18 and still lives there today. So when you are talking about purchasing a home, a car, or even being able to just live on a wage, that has changed.

    Any industry could face ultimate doom. Growing up GM was the stock all others were measured by. I think in the foreseeable future Tesla is not going anywhere. EV's are not for everyone and the Grid cannot support EV's for everyone. My wife just purchased a new Tesla and guess what, it won't be ready for several weeks. This is where Tesla shines. My guess is they have more AI, robots, and automation than any manufacturer. Even their sales is mostly done via app. The entire process requires little human interaction. If they are building cars to meet demand and not overproducing they will never have cars they cannot sell. Tesla will taylor production to meet demand. In my opinion as long as there is self transportation the EV is not going anywhere and Tesla is the best EV out there and is competitive with comparable non EV vehicles with or without tax subsidies/incentives/credits. The problem is not the EV it is the Government. Tesla probably has a brighter future than ICE only or manufacturers that are trying to produce both. I think Tesla has lean manufacturing that other companies will never achieve. Look at it this way. For a competitor to begin to compete the first thing they need to do is get rid of every dealer and sell direct to the public. But maybe the problem with that model is that all ICE vehicles need service departments to handle the warranty work and repairs and maintenance whereas Tesla simply sends a WIFI software update. In my opinion Tesla is way ahead of the competittion and it doesn't matter if they lose China or don't sell to every American. They are sustainable at any foreseeable level of production volume. They don't need to expand and grow to be profitable and they don't need subsidies either. People will buy Tesla because it is a good car and they can charge it at home. That same person will have a ICE car for long trips or just rent for trips or figure it out. Everybody doesn't need to travel 10 hours without stopping.

    Seems like a horse would be even more reliable. Maybe a bicycle with solid rubber tires. I didn't live in the old days but it seemed like people traveled on horse and the horse survived. But then again all the vegetation is gone. Maybe they can live on Japanese knotweed, there is plenty of that.

    Maybe one day they will just outlaw gasoline or make it extremely hard to acquire. At that point people would be very happy with the range of an EV.

    I am white privilege because I purchased a home on some acreage years ago and got a 3% or less interest rate. My beautiful home with taxes and insurance cost about the same as a poor working stiff has to pay for a 2 bedroom apartment. The poor people are paying my mortgage. They have inflated credit card interest rates because I have cheap interest on my home. I pay no interest on my charge cards because I pay them off. I have credit cards that offer zero interest for a year. Hmm Zero percent for a year promo offer to a person that pays off their credit card each month. That is terrible because the poor working stiff that cannot afford his apartment, or food, or ... has to pay close to 30% on his credit cards while I get a zero percent promo rate. And guess what? I probably have more than one zero percent promo rates and if I opened an account that offered zero percent for a year they would probably offer me a $30,000 credit limit. So go figure. It is the guy that doesn't need the credit that get offered the credit. It is the guy that already has the beautiful woman that has beautiful women hitting on him. If I was purchasing something tomorrow for $30,000 and had a year with zero interest promo offer, and had the cash to pay for the purchase, I will use zero interest for a year. That is just good business. I have been more than full circle. Been poor, been pretty well off with no help from anyone, ran several business's, been bankrupt and broke with terrible credit, am not hurting for anything and have a great credit score. No help from anyone except wife. When down and out, climb out and prosper, When prosperous, don't waste money and conserve. Nearly 27 year old son has over $375,000 net worth, 2 paid off vehicles, a two family home where he occupies 2nd and 3rd floor with roommates, first floor pays the mortgage. He did it all on his own. No money from me or my wife. Graduated with 2 degrees and a Masters. Saves almost all his income. He is on year 4 of a 10 year plan to be financially independent. Great physical shape. Ran 10k race last week and won. Running marathon next week in MA. Here are the results. Beat 2nd place by over a minute:https://www.plattsys.com/m1shell.php?eventid=2163

    That is not true. I have purchased many brand new automobiles. Probably over 20. I would purchase a new Tesla with or without the credit. The first one was over 50k and did not qualify for $4200 in CT credits. We fully expected the $4200 and were informed when at the dealership that it didn't qualify. We bought it anyway. Still the point is if Thomas Massie was putting new Solar on or purchasing a new Tesla would he use the available tax credits? Solar panels. I would put solar on my home with or without the credit. The only difference is that I would have done a DIY self install. So my net expense would have been the same. So I guess you could say that I was not the beneficiary of the Solar system installation but the workers installing Solar were the recipients. I don't tell you how to file your taxes or spend your money. Pay more in taxes if that is what you want. Do not take tax credits. If that strokes your ego then be satisfied with that. But do you think, the most Libertarian Congressman would utilize a Federal Income Tax credit of $7500 if he purchased a brand new Tesla? Do you think Ron Paul would use the Federal Income tax credit if he purchased a new Tesla? I would bet money that Ron Paul would use the tax credit.

    Call it what you want. Do you think if Thomas Massie purchased a New Tesla, or New Solar panels, or new Battery Storage, or insulation, for his solar powered home, he would utilize any tax credits when filing his taxes?

    No offense. I have a clear head and have no issue with taking advantage of the abuse. There were years in the 1990's that I paid nearly $100,000 in Federal Income taxes. I still have huge tax liability. Ron Paul took advantage of Earmarks for his district. It is the same thing. Money is getting extorted and spent. If you want to stand on principle and be financially worse off for it then that is your business. I quit a $70,000 job when my kids were in college. My son's first year with his full tuition scholarship had a FAFSA parents contribution of $23,000. That was even with his $48,500 per year tuition scholarship. So I was working full time with overtime for what exactly? To be liable to be sued for malpractice, pay taxes, and tuition? Fuch that. I quit working, we survived on one income, Instead of $23,000 parent obligation, the kid qualified for a pell grant, our income taxes went down to next to nothing. Daughter entered college also on Full scholarship. We had more net income without me working than we had when I worked full time with overtime. So when there are grants by the city to fix old houses and you own a qualifying home, you should just ignore the grants and let every other person use them. I am against all that stuff. But if it is out there and I have to literally pay for it, I am going to know what is there, and use whatever I can to my advantage. I put solar on the house. Why? Because of a 30% tax credit and to minimize my exposure to rising out of control energy costs.

    Tesla makes a good car. EV's should not be mandated. Neither Ford nor any other Company should be making EV's if they cannot make money on them. All mandates and subsidies by Government should be ended. All entitlements should be ended. We should get out of all wars. Foreign aid should be ended. The border should be secure. We need to fix this: https://twitter.com/WallStreetApes/status/1789299962636886216?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

    I have owned many New Vehicles my entire life and many came equipped with factory Cruise Control. Most times I elect to not use cruise control because you set it and end up behind someone going slower and can't move over, or are in the passing lane with someone wanting to go much faster. Another factor is when it kicks in often it changes to a lower gear so it is kinda all or nothing. Once you tap the brake it is off, So it ends up being more work and less efficient to turn on and off and reset when using cruise control. Maybe in the 70's and 80's traveling the highway things were different but today, roads are often packed and traffic is unpredictable. We went to the Casino last night and my wife drove the Tesla. I asked her about cruise control. She turned it on. Tesla has the best cruise control I have ever experienced. If you are in a lane and approach the vehicle in front of you, the car automatically adjusts the speed and paces the car. Once the path is clear it once again accelerates to the set speed.

    From 2008 through 2010, Paul won nearly $125 million in earmarks, most of them for spending in his district. Last year, he was one of just four House Republicans who refused to abide by their party’s voluntary earmarks ban. Trying to justify his projects in a 2009 Fox News interview, Paul said, “If they are going to allot the money, I have a responsibility to represent my people.” https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2011/07/ron-paul-texas-federal-spending-pork/

    I have been married to two accountants. Lower income people do not pay income tax or pay very little. The Tax Credits are not available unless you have taxable liabilities. I will take what is offered with a clean conscience. I have paid into the corrupt system my entire life. If you remodel and purchase insulation, would you take the tax credit? Low income people are not paying for my Subsidy. If you want to argue that the subsidies cause inflation that might be a legitimate argument. But I am forced to have my money extorted to pay for foreign aid/wars that I do not agree with, welfare, housing, too many things to list. So yes I will take this subsidy that I can use.

    My wife decided she wants to trade up and get 2024 Model Y with 7 seats. At this time they offer the $7500 federal credit instant off the price along with the state credits. Last year the MSRP was over 50k so didn't qualify for the State credits. This year MSRP $49990. Trading in the 2023 with less than 10,000 miles. There are no New Chevrolet Bolts for sale around me. There are no deals on Ford Lightnings around me. The Tesla was purchased yesterday but won't be delivered until the end of the month because they have to build it. So there is no over inventory of new EV's. Maybe there are some EV's that nobody wants like Nissan Leaf but Tesla is not going anywhere and they are not discounting the Ford Lightnings.

    I keep hearing about Tesla losing money, Ford losing money, Nobody wanting to purchase EV's, Hertz getting rid of their entire fleet... I want to purchase a new EV at those cheap discounted prices. I want to find one of those EV's that nobody wants. I would be happy with a Ford Lightning, or Chevrolet Bolt, or Tesla Model Y. Are they cheap? Are they not wanted? Are dealers lots filled with these cars that they cannot sell? I want one. If they are so plentiful, maybe someone can provide a link to one I can buy at a deeply discounted price.
