  2. The Feds are complete F’ing morons. They cut off this company in the heat of development. I hate to say, but they deserve to lose their (our) shirt since they didn’t completely follow thru. They didn’t partially fund $465 million to Tesla and now they are a $6 Billion company and will pay their loan back early…
