Cash For Clunkers. What a great soundbite. What a great way to dumb down a debate. What a great way to disguise a Green idea and mainstream it as an effort to get the economy moving by selling cars. What a load of Progressive garbage. No, these people don’t think and act like children, right?
Cash For Clunkers (CFC), an Obama Administration brainchild, is working out great, no? 250,000 cars purchased under this most magnificent program in 4 days. Then these big brained had to shut the program down, then they said they hadn’t, then they came back and said they have. So, is CFC in force? Who can say? Ask Obama – he’s the smartest SOB on this rock!
Besides being the quintessential example of government ignorance, inefficiency, ineptitude and arrogance it is also a very poorly disguised “Green Initiative” in that these ‘clunkers” will be destroyed so they no longer can burn fuel and emit carbon dioxide, and as we all know, that is indeed the most important thing next to the Progressive “fix” for health care.
Of the quarter million cars thus far designated clunkers from these brain trusts, how many ares still fine vehicles for the purposes of transportation – ya know, the reason cars are built in the first place? If 80% of these “clunkers” are still reliable transportation, why destroy them?
Aren’t there people who desperately need a vehicle, even if it doesn’t get 20 mpg? What about poor folks or folks who live in areas where there is no public transport – ya know, 90% of the nation? 200,000 perfectly operable vehicles will be crushed and sold to China as junk steel that they will then refine and re-sell to we Americans.
There are service organizations that these cars could be donated to – the Kidney Foundation is always begging for cars, and that’s just one of many who could use running vehicles to assist in doing their jobs or raising funds by selling the vehicles.
But no, the DC brain trusts know best. Let’s destroy these gas guzzlers (a questionable judgment at best) because the most important thing is to be Green, right? Destroy perfectly functioning and monetarily valuable vehicles to further the ends of the “Greens” who are certain failure to do as they petulantly demand will cause the Earth to burn to a cinder by Thursday!
I must confess an admiration for these usurpers. They know no bounds of common sense or decency and that sure then opens lots of doors for them. The ends are the goal and the means are all good as long as what they want is achieved! I admire such single-mindedness. Hitler had it too! Destroy a nation of 130 million so you can get rid of 6 million Jews! Now that’s forward thinking. Hey, don’t the Progressives always claim to be “forward thinking?” Did I really just say that? Yeah, I did – good for me!
Never lose sight of the goal Progressives! Always make sure that no matter what, the agenda is pushed, even when doing so is totally counter to common sense and good governance, right? Eye on the ball and all that!
I really admire you cats. You have the unique ability to combine Rube Goldberg, the Edsel, $400.00 toilet seats and lead-filled toys from China. Yepper – rolled up and cleverly packaged as a government program to spur economy and sell cars, when the reality is it is an effort to serve their Green agenda
Another brilliant idea brought to you by the same Progressive brain trusts that in the 1930’s reported the USSR was the social and economic wave of future success and justice; that interning Americans of Japanese descent was a great idea and of course, keeping the US mired in Depression a good 5 years after the rest of the world had emerged from the Great Depression!
And these are the same politically motivated and totally tainted fools that want to run 15% of our economy that constitutes this nation’s health care? These fools that can’t even run CFC? No, nothing to worry about folks. “Look at my eyes, my eyes, not my hands, look at my eyes, my eyes!” (A reference to a Little Britain comedic skit)
You go, Smart Cats!
