red barchetta – a little too realistic?

Fantastic song, but too much a far-fetched dystopian sci-fi story to really happen, right?

And yet here we are, with our dear leader telling us to buy the government motors Volt (while former government officials drive the $100,000, made-possible-by-YOUR-tax-dollars Fisker Karmas to their dachas). The other “correct” cars to drive while you’re pining for high speed rail to relieve you of the onerous duty of deciding for yourself where to go and how to get there? The Prius, Insight, and Leaf – all as underpowered and soul-sucking to drive as they are affronts to the eye. As a bonus with the Leaf, its range is limited so that the proletariat can’t roam far enough from home to get ideas of independence. At least its power doesn’t come from some filthy source like coal … oh. Guess our government betters didn’t really think that whole “electricity – it’s clean energy” thing through.

Ah well – I’ll see if I can’t come up with some lighter thoughts tomorrow. In the mean time, they can have my keys when they pry them from my grease-and-brake-dust-blackened fingers!
