Cash for Clunkers drives people bonkers

Who said: "Socialism for the rich, free enterprise for the poor"? Whoever, that person was a genius. He, or someone like him, is now in charge of our government. It's a good description of what Cash for Clunkers is all about. If you have $20,000 or $30,000 for a new car, we will give you $4,500 extra. Then we take the trade-ins, destroy them, and deny poor people who might need a car to go to work or school the right to buy these used cars.

Instead, do they get cut up for usable parts, or buried in a landfill somewhere, leaching motor oil into the ground? Or do we crush them and sell them at a loss to the Chinese?

Where are the grown-ups?

I'm sorry, for some reason all the comments have disappeared. I apologize to all who took the time to comment.

Blame Blogger. Better still, blame Bush.
