Governor Christie shuts down Tesla car stores in NJ
In typical regressive fashion, NJ Governor Christie spent last week in DC railing about Obama's government interventions in the free market. So he returns to NJ and first thing is to hypocritically and unilaterally shut down Tesla car stores, i.e., government intervention in the free market. Why? The 'reason' cited is because Tesla doesn't use middle-men dealerships to sell their cars, instead selling directly to the consumer. And the car dealerships are pissed over being cut out of the equation. So the usual regressive corporate control of government (aka fascism) didn't want the free market competition and their bought Governor eliminated that threat. Oh, and neither like the very idea of electric cars, as that cuts out their other funder, the oil companies. Free market, eh?
