The government providing transportation (or vouchers for public transport) to people with jobs and no car would actually be a net gain for the economy.  It's a good idea.

Government funding public transport to an acceptable level would be a better idea.

yeah that would be nice.  but it would be expensive for the far flung places. maybe an old honda would be cheaper and better?

That reminds me, I have to file for my $3750 fuel efficient car tax credit.  Anybody know if I can back-date that against last year's return like I did wit the first time homebuyer credit a few years ago?  That was great because I bought my house in November so the IRS gave me almost a year's worth of interest on it.

/ Both those programs are stupid, but I'm happy to take advantage.

Wait a minute. Isn't this what the right was screaming Obama should have done with the cars that were traded in during the Cash for Clunkers program instead of destroying them? Now they have outrage over a made up story about a program doing exactly what they were criticizing Obama for not doing. This shiat is ridiculous.

Doesn't seem inconsistent to me.

Repurposing old cars to poor people would be efficient.
Trashing the old cars, then spending money to buy new(er) ones would be inefficient, you know if it were actually happening.

I can't wait to tool around town in my Solyndra hybrid made by Government Motors while driving my illegal immigrant friends to the hospital to receive their free abortions served with a side of Muslimy arugula.  Then we're on our way to piss on that NASCAR guy's grave as we face Mecca before we get gay married and cancel Christmas forever.

Oh no.  FOX news is on to us.

If they gave those cars away you would be screaming about it also, just like these assholes are screaming about an imaginary story.

actually I take that back, I would not be surprised if the original story gets greenlit on fark within the next week. in fact I would bet a shiny internet dime that it does.

We must destroy and remake to keep the economy running.  If we don't consume then people will lose jobs. The more stitches the less riches.

All right, let's make a bet on how long till a sitting Congressman says it.  We already having a Senator denying it, so that means there's at least a few of their constituents calling them about it.

I saw an article on the 2015 Mustang being tested and it was fully covered to hide the body from the reporters. I jokingly though to myself that I wonder how long until some "derper" sends an e-mail with the picture claiming President Obama is forcing American women diplomats to drive cars with burkas in Muslim countries. Sad thing is after reading this article, I now could see it actually happening.

1.  Because Obama.
2.  Because they're cell phones now and old people still think that cell phones are an incredible luxury item.

Strangely, I did a GIS for "automotive burqa" and instead found  this:

cdn.thedailybeast.com

Poising it as wearing a burqa to avoid domestic surveillance... now  that could be lulzworthy provided enough heads explode.
