On Wednesday, President Obama announce that the federal government will purchase the first 100 electric cars that roll off an American assembly line.  Currently, that appears to be the Chevy Volt which is reportedly going to carry a price tag of $40,000.  So in addition to the $60 Billion that the public has paid to keep GM afloat, which means the taxpayers own about 60% of the company, the taxpayers are going to be forced by the chief executive to purchase it’s own cars to the tune of another $4 Million.  What’s next?

The real question is – who is doing the negotiation here.  Really, maybe the majority of Americans don’t want the floormats, but the navigation system is a must.  And then who gets the profits?  And will we be taxed on 60% of the profits that GM makes?

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
