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

I haven't noticed a lack of options.

Is this really a thing? Or are people just wistfully recalling the halcyon days when used cars were only a nickle? You know, before Brikabrak Hoosegow Oface took over.


CSB warning.

My mother's last ex-husband wanted a motorcycle.

He didn't give a damn about things like fuel efficiency, since every vehicle he ever owned was some gargantuan land-yacht (no, he wouldn't pay for the fuel if he could possibly avoid it--he'd still borrow my mother's Ford Escort every time he wanted to go somewhere because "he was short and didn't have the money for a fillup"). He tried to justify the cost of the motorcycle after he trashed mom's car by claiming that the motorcycle was far, far safer than a car, since it would fling the driver safely away from the crash site, whereas a person in a crash was likely to be trapped in a prison of crushed metal and incinerated when the car inevitably exploded. He maintained that you were actually safer being thrown into a bridge abutment headfirst than you were in the car.

He also cut the seat belts out of every vehicle he owned, since he was convinced he was at far greater risk from the belt breaking his neck than he was from being slammed through the windshield at 70 miles an hour.

There are people who refuse to live in the same reality the rest of us live in, no matter how much you try to prod them out. Why yes, he *was* an Alex Jones/Glenn Beck fan, why do you ask?

/Also claimed he was taken prisoner in Grenada during the US invasion

GameSprocket: HotIgneous Intruder: GameSprocket: I posted a source for my information. Where is yours?

You need a citation for "supply and demand?"

/Derp.

I need a citation for cash for clunkers causing enough of a drain on supply to make a difference. That was the claim, correct?


DERPTIY, DERP!

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
