Electric cars are still a niche market and will probably remain that way until batteries improve. I'd love to have an all electric car but they are too expensive and have limited range. Most of them are also too damn small (because the batteries still suck.)

The US isn't richer because of it's adventures in Afghanistan and Iraq and Russian won't be richer because of it's adventures in Ukraine, Georgia,etc. It's more likely to be bankrupt or in ruins. Of course by that time there will be no independent journalists to ask questions and everything will be glorious much in the way that it is becoming in Venezuela.

> Clearly the NRA is far more successful than the ACLU

The NRA has 10x the membership of the ACLU (5M vs 0.5M), 2.5x the budget of the ACLU ($255M/yr vs $100M/yr) and spends it all on a single issue. No wonder they are more successful.

Yes, but look at Argentina and the fight over them trying to do this. Everyone wont' agree and they will still be bound by the terms of the original bonds. Fortunately for the US our bonds are denominated in dollars so we can just inflate them away...

If money can't buy happiness, I guess you'll just have to rent it.
