Comment Zap Smart cars (Score 1) 427

Smart is trying to sell in the US, and received Department of Transportation and EPA certifications months ago, but is currently blocked by CA state government. I wonder who could be behind that move?

There are several hundred millions of dollars worth of 'Americanized' Smart cars currently sitting in a California wharehouse, waiting for distribution by the company called ZAP: "ZAP has spent in excess of $10 million on this project and there are numerous jobs at stake." Some Smart cars were even ceremoniously donated to politicians.

This is what happens in a fascist government: corporations conspire with politicians to maintain profits at the public expense. Thank you, good night, and we don't care.
