While touring a General Motors plant in Hamtramck, Mich. today, President Barack Obama got the urge to get behind the wheel of a car—something he’s done only one other time since taking office. According to ABC news, the President stopped at the end of the assembly line and asked his secret service agent if he would be allowed to take a car for a spin. After some back and forth jokes, eventually Obama was allowed to take a Chevrolet Volt, a 340-mile extended range electric vehicle, for a test drive. The test drive was slow, deliberate, and lasted for about 10 feet.

“I’m telling you guys, pretty smooth,” Obama announced after emerging from the electric car.

While Obama was visiting the facility, GM announced that the company will increase the U.S. production capacity of the Chevrolet Volt by 50% in 2012—thanks to strong public support of the vehicle.

“The Chevrolet Volt provides drivers with the latest technology, outstanding innovation, and something no other electric vehicle can provide – peace of mind,” said Edward E. Whitacre, Jr., GM Chairman and CEO. “We are very proud to host the President of the United States at this plant, where the future of the American automobile industry is being built today by the men and women of General Motors.”

This week Chevrolet dealers began taking customer orders for the 2011 Chevrolet Volt which is priced at $41,000.

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
