You know what the worst part is? The shameless dishonesty of that statement. Those morons know that if GM made a car that got 200mpg it would be the highest selling car in history, yet they act like it would singlehandedly destroy the company. No mention of purposely designing and building cars that fall apart in three years, nothing about focusing all the advertising on giant gas guzzlers.

HotIgneous Intruder: Yay, Cash for Clunkers.
Now there are no affordable used cars.

Thanks, Mister Preznit!


Total number of Cars turned in under cash for clunkers: 677,081

Total number of registered passenger vehicles in the US currently: 254,400,000

Number of years ago Cash for Clunkers ended: 3

Therefore, doing the math, we come to the conclusion that you're an idiot

Most of those cars also won't pass regulations here because they aren't sufficiently armored against the landboats that are popular on our highways.


I just happen to have a link to a great video: A 1959 Bel-Air tailfinned tank in a head to head crash against a 2009 chevy malibu. The malibu does fairly decently for a car oppressed by burdensome government regulations that increase mileage at the cost of driver safety. By which I mean the malibu test dummy bounced off his airbag while the Bel-Air's ended up partially in the trunk.

It really is hard to take them seriously since the bankruptcy, especially since they ought to know they'd get bailed out again in the odd chance they're right. They just don't want to go throught the hassle.


I think if they went kaboom at any time other than the middle of the biggest recession since the 1920s, it would be much harder to engineer a government-backed bankruptcy.

Obamafuel?

Whats this?

A new bill i can be outraged over!? This is going to directly prove the link between gas prices and how much Obama hates America and is a Double Secret Kenyan Socialist Muslim Marxist to the GOP.

If approved, the changes are projected to save average American motorists roughly $8,200 at the pump over the life of their vehicles, but would also cost them as much as $3,000 more for a new vehicle.


Hmmm $8200 in savings Vs $3000 more up front? what to do.. what to do????
