Jim, do you consider a tax deduction a subsidy? I can't find any info on Tesla as far as what they actually pay in income and/or other taxes, but Oil&Gas companies pay huge amounts in income, severance, and other taxes. I don't know if I bought a Tesla today, what my federal tax deduction would be. We certainly don't receive tax deductions when we buy gallons of gas.
Here's a link to an interesting opinion regarding "subsidies" for Big Oil.
"New Edition to Core Trail."
Exactly Mark, from the article I linked above:
Mercatus Center economist Matt Mitchell has explained why privileges such as these are such a problem. Mitchell notes that "when governments dispense privileges, smart, hardworking, and creative people are encouraged to spend their time devising new ways to obtain favors instead of new ways to create value for customers."
Pure capitalism? That's inanely laughable.
"Tesla is only profitable thanks to politics and tax subsidies."
"The poll conducted between Oct. 2 and Oct. 6 gathered 1,013 responses from people who indicated they were registered to vote, ..."
They must have removed the poll. I checked it w/o AdBlocker and there was (surprise, surprise) an adv. in the usual poll location. BTW, I never noticed the poll on the website.
Strike that. There's a poll about the Ice Arena below, so I obviously missed the other poll.
... less than $1 per day ...
All those dollars/day add up to a lot of money.
Hmmm, let me look at my tax bill.
Wow! I'm already paying dollars per day, so what's the harm of adding another (less than) $/day ?
Do civilians with guns ever stop mass shootings?
Not according to the delusional.
At least this guy can spell:
Yep, that's far afield.
The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away
I was never a Scorpion fan. But who cares about similes or metaphors.
You might have a future as an investigative reporter.
We're quite grateful that you didn't pee in the gene pool.
(I'm just teasing. Your progeny would, in the least, have a great grasp of American English.)
