Comment Re:Smart (Score 1) 50

I disagree. I have a Tesla Model S and it drives perfectly fine for me every day in stop and go traffic. At higher speeds it works well too but it is prudent to keep a close eye on it. I think autonomous driving in limited situations is still helpful even if it doesn't work everywhere.

I think within a year or two, Tesla will be able to drive long distances on major freeways with little or no human intervention. That's a huge value to me as a driver.

If my car can handle both stop-and-go traffic and long-distance boring driving, I can handle the rest no problem.

Comment Re:It's all about who subsidizes whom (Score 1) 1023

So you are saying that if a Walmart employee receives a government subsidy then Walmart effectively received a subsidy?

The government offers free money to people and that presumably allows them to accept a lower wage from Walmart than they would otherwise accept. The employee applies for the job and accepts the wage. The government subsidizes their lifestyle. And that's Walmart's fault?

Comment Just more big business (Score 1) 342

By dramatically increasing regulations and charging $1 million to review new products before they can be advertised the FDA is giving the industry to big business. Anybody else think that is a horrible idea? We need lots of small businesses to foster innovation and competition in any market.
