Elio Motors.. and now it begins

When the GM plant shut down in Shreveport the city paid a crap load of money to find a replacement. Elio Motors is an idea, not a car manufacturer. They took the money and promised to build a 3 wheeler.

I posted here that it was a money grab and the car would never sell. Now we find out that you can't drive one without a motor cycle license.

they want an exemption

What begins? Did you read the article linked? Barbara Norton is on top of it.

Isn't the state of Louisiana going to provide this startup with $150m in taxpayer subsidies?

I thought this board was for this kind of "economic development?"

I've seen the 150 M number but I heard it was Shreveport + Caddo Parish commission. Don't know if state money is being used.

No. This is Solyndra style money down the rat hole.

I've got a really good idea. Where's do I sign up for the $150M?

I'll only pay myself $224k/year to get it going.

This is what I've always said about TV weather men. If they get paid $40K a year to get the forecast wrong, I'll get it wrong for $20K.

Hey, I'm really sad today. My favorite barrista, who is the prettiest girl in the place, quit today. She's going to 'hair cutting school'. Not cosmetology school where you have to pay the school money. She's going to hair cutting school where she works for free while they teach her to cut hair.

Must be a bad economy.

You still have any hair? If so, go get your hair cut after coffee.

These state incentives are performances based. They don't just write them $150M checks...

Government handouts are a scam? Say it ain't so!

I doubt the owners consider themselves welfare recipients.

Baldness is genetic, CT. My ancestors were all hairy SOBs. Not a bald one in the lot.
