    98% of the Teslas I see in my area, quite a number this year, are owned by second homeowners. Mr. and Mrs. Green saving the earth on the drive to their landscaped heated and cooled 2nd or 3rd + house in the country. Probably buy carbon offsets for the full green douche award.

    Yo, it's all good. They're just following Al Gore's lead of having multiple sprawling estates. He's a real role model for proper environmentalism, ya know! Now if they REALLY want to do as the environment champ does, they'll also employ a fleet of Chevy Tahoes and private jets as well. Otherwise, are they even really going green? I mean, come on. We should ALL be flying private to Geneva and Cannes for the world environmental conferences if we truly care about the Earth. /s

    Yeah, but what percentage of all the homes are 2nd's up there? You guys survive on tourism and beer.

    Yup. Nothing more damaging to the atmosphere than a MacMansion in ski country or, God forbid, on the waterfront somewhere. And yet, the greeny upper crusty ex hippies have saturated the world with these things since 1965. The hypocrisy is blatant.

    You and dumbfee are getting to be a bit comical on the hate here. We get it, you guys think Elon is a real-life 1D Dr. Evil. Anyone argument to the contrary will be shit upon immediately and ridiculed here.

    It's probably a small percentage of owners, but also realize some people do buy it because it's the fastest production car and wayyyyyy easier to drive than a GT3, ferrari or whatever supercar that is a lot harder to tame.

    Anyways, we are all hypocrites if we want to play that game, nobody wins the human contradiction contest. See twitter arguments for details on how this works, ad infinitum.

    Not really true. Hyperbole is just the language of the internet. Tribal warfare where keystrokes are the only weapons. Strawjack just happens to be a particularly low-information dullard flailing with logical constructs he can't quite get a handle on.

    Zooming out, it's pretty strange to see people embrace securities fraud. I didn't think I'd live to see it, but here we are.

    yeah, I think elon's a hypocritical fraud and you aren't saving the planet by driving a tesla. just like the wework jackass commuting by G650 and banning meat to save the planet is just another hypocritical grifter. i think most of the late 10s woke environmentalism is bullshit greenwashing for millenial assholes.\

    i also know there isn't fuck all going to change your mind, or jackstraws or anyone else fluffing musk. it's just a green version of the dumfuck trumpalos.

    You can use the gas tax to pay for shit like health care for all...which would help those poor people that can't afford the gas or health insurance or provide them with rebates to buy more efficient cars. Not saying I am advocating for those two policies exactly but saying there are ways to tax gas and not completely fuck over the working class that need to get around affordably.

    And I see you guys are back at it with the carbon shaming. Hamster wheels to nowhere.

    GT3s get pretty good gas mileage so long as you're not doubling the speed limit. Wait

    This is too disjointed of a response to confidently respond to.

    Change my mind from thinking what? What the fuck are you taking about, what have you figured out? Nothing. You are such a knee-jerk intellectual. One year ago I was driving a 2008 4Runner, knowing this.... I must be X and X, right? What am I? What car do you drive so I can tell you exactly how you think and what kind of person you are, Dumbfee?

    there'll be more musk spam soon enough and the thread'll get another bump. then some element of the fraud will unravel, someone will post about it, and one of the totally-not-kneejerk Tesla fanbois will shit on the argument without bothering to read the link.

    the ouroboros at work.

    You and bro have convinced me and everyone here Elon is a fraud. But the problem we have with you is not Elon, it’s that you are a gigantic smug asshole. That’s what this is about, not Elon. You are like the guy who criticizes someone who bikes to work by saying THEY DONT CARE BOUT THE ENVIRONMENT THEY LIKE THE EXCERCISE!!! Uh, no shit and who cares. And no one thinks they are saving the world buying an electric car, but thanks for telling us how perceptive you are about total strangers 1000 miles away through a narrow telescope. Your shit stinks worse than most.

    Really though - if it's not about the environment - why does the Teslar nice car lifestyle deserve public subsidy? Is it because like with Uber the lifestyle is unaffordable without hefty subsidy from someone else?

    Dude. I don't think Ugly's ever virtue signaled about his Prius. He's a lot like me in that it's all about the right tool for the job. Sometimes he wants AWD for his ski trips, hence Subaru. Sometimes he needs 4WD, hence his lifted 4R. Sometimes he wants more mpg, hence his Prius. Say what you want, but I think you got him all wrong with your post.

    Just because some people are super smug about how they're saving the planet with their hybrids with bumper stickers all over the rear and custom license plates saying something pious, doesn't mean that everyone with a Prius (or a Tesla) is that way.
