SolarCity: Tesla's Solar Boondoggle
Tesla is still laying off employees in the company acquired only a year ago.

Boondoggle (noun): work or activity that is wasteful or pointless but gives the appearance of having value.

It's hard to argue Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA) acquisition of SolarCity has been anything but a boondoggle of epic proportion.

He really knows what he is talking about. I don't know why Musk has any credibility left with anyone but I hope he is part of a big push to put the Saudis out of business. In the meantime much better to use Canadian and US oil to make gasoline for United States cars and jet fuel for US jets. That is kind of the choice for now and the foreseeable future. Trump seems to like the Saudis much better than the Canadians. Definitely likes the Russians more than the Canadians.

What dreams for SolarCity just a few years ago. Musk said so many things. Analysts loved it. I hope he is much more honest with regard to Tesla, the car. Tesla the SolarCity was and is just garbage.
