Re: To Lease or too buy an EV

LMAO you're saying a foreign military liaison visiting the general's HQ is the "the trenches" :roll: I'm saying you're not management material. Ironically instead of fearing all this change, it might just be your future safety net, but first you would need to learn to let go of the rigid ...

Re: To Lease or too buy an EV

I work in the steel industry, producing a semi-finished commercial good that is used in the production of automobiles... What would call that? Rear Echelon? No that's not trenches, I think your definition of trenches is something else. We're not talking about the grunt work that goes into producing...

Re: To Lease or too buy an EV

Credibility is sort of like a math theorem: If someone can a find a single example where it doesn't hold, the whole thing fails. Seems math is not your forte then, not important for tightening lug-nuts in Detroit I guess. I also note that you don't even respond to what I've quoted, which is damning...
