The Good, The Bad and the Very Very Kenspeckleously Ugly!

The Good! *Tesla Motors* The electric car maker's Tesla Model S was just named the CNET. Tech Car of the Year - beating out the likes of BMW, Audi, Toyota and Ford. This is the second major award for the Model S. It was previously named the 2012 Motor Trend Car of the Year. While the workers at Tesla are probably thrilled about the award - Mitt Romney probably isn't. He of course bashed the automaker in during the presidential election - saying that it was one of President Obama's failed green investments. Kudos to Tesla for promoting a cleaner and greener environment - and sticking it to Mitt Romney in the process.

Millions of Americans in various states will see an increase in minimum wage come 2012 - meaning they'll have more money to spend to help support the economy. If an increase in minimum wage can help rebuild this nation's struggling economy - why hasn't Washington done it yet? If raising the minimum wage is one of the easiest ways to spur on economic growth - why are so many opposed to it?
