There are so many people out there in the world and in this message group that have nothing else better to do but try to discredit anything that Musk does because they want to make a buck, whether through their investments in oil and energy stocks or just a flaw in their personality where they are always looking at the negative of everything. From whining about the first crash that killed the driver (we don't know if the tractor trailer rig pulled out in front of the car when he was within 50 feet or less in which case nothing could have saved it crashing at the speed he was going), to the latest that Tesla is affecting the flamingos. It is just shocking the number of stupid people there that are just plain dumb. And now the Internet allows all these morons to pour their weirdness out all over the world. Amazing.
People who were at the crash site before anyone else said there was no movie running. I heard the truck driver say he heard the movie playing but did not see it. However, a portable DVD player was supposedly found. Who knows, I suspect the truck driver pulled out in front of the car and he wouldn't have been able to stop anyways.
There are so many deaths in ICE that are happening every day that people have become used to it. I can randomly type in google, "van two mothers killed" and it comes up with horrific headlines just recently. Burned to death. There is one accident where some guy is watching "Harry Potter", according to the trucker who cut in front of him and the autopilot didn't work as advertised. The shorts will stop at nothing to bring down an American company just so they can make a buck.
Ethically and morally bankrupt they are!
What are you smoking? Netflix split July 15t, 2015, 7 for 1! You must be really, really bright. NOT!
cav, another short who obviously hasn't been here very long because there only shorts who post in the message boards, on all stocks.
Clhanluke, your comments are so stupid I have to put ignore user on you. You and keef. Keep making stuff up to no end! Worthless!
You can have your brain replaced for coming up with a dumb analogy!
No, they are not. The problem is that the industries that are affected by Tesla are making a concerted effort to bad mouth anything Tesla does. The problem is that most people see right through the BS.
Of course it is being pushed by the shorts. Articles that appear on just the dumbest of things. Senator Grassley should be investigating the companies that have killed people like Takata and GM. I hope these idiots get kicked out of office for taking bribes or payoffs from whoever. Our system of government is the best in the world but is still corrupt.
Spelling, you moron! Learn how to spell or use a spell checker. Damn, there are some stupid people writing messages.
Learn to use proper English and spelling or use the spell checker because you sound stupid! Tract should be track.
I've already had it for 3 years or so. Bought it at 28 and started accumulating thereafter so I understand exactly what he did. I expect Tesla to keep going because they make great cars with performance, style and distance. It can only get better. On top of that, I trust Musk because he has ethics and morals that I don't see too often and CEO's. Years ago when one of the venture capital firms decided to cash, he ended up buying like $93 million worth of share to make up for the drop in stock price. Listen to him carefully when he talks. There is a genuine concern that man is destroying the planet due the burning of fossil fuels, yet it hardly ever gets mentioned in the press. He admits his mistakes which you don't see either in most CEO's. That is why I support Elon Musk. He says what he is going to do and does it. I'm happy for him and I hope he succeeds. SpaceX is successful and we need someone besides ULA because they are reaming taxpayers for putting satellites into orbit. Yet the detractors want to put Musk down because they want to make a buck shorting the stock.
That is what is wrong with all the other manufacturers. Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, Chevy Bolt are all ugly. The Chevy Volt looks good. BMW i8 looks good but it is a hybrid. Why they can't build a car that looks normal with performance and range? It's like they want to give the business to Tesla but they are wasting billions on research. Weird to say the least. You would think that this would be basic specs but nope, lets spend billions and come up with a butt ugly car with a range of 100 miles max and then say its a failure.
Exactly, I said the same thing before. The shorts don't utilize the net to check on things. The Gigafactory is coming along nicely as people with drones put high resolution videos up. Just go to Youtube and look at the people taking test rides too. All they know is numbers which is fine except in this case. They can't see to far into the future what a game changer this will be. The batteries will only get better over time and they are good enough today.
