Clunker Program Designed To Destroy The Evidence

Have any of the cars you have driven drawn a crowd just sitting there?
Have legendary songs been written about the kinds of cars you drive?
Do the words "rumpety-rumpety" mean anything to you?

How would you go about ridding the planet of the cars legends are made of and convince everyone to drive golf carts and other assorted miniature electric cars?

"AP - WASHINGTON — The government's popular "cash for clunkers" program may be running out of money after only a matter of days as car shoppers flock to dealerships to take advantage of the rebates."
Just like shooting fish in a barrel...
"...Dubbed the Car Allowance Rebate System, or CARS, the program offers owners of old cars and trucks $3,500 or $4,500 toward a new, more fuel-efficient vehicle, in exchange for scrapping their old vehicle. Congress last month approved the plan to boost auto sales and remove some inefficient cars and trucks from the roads."
The program mandates that all the cars and trucks (clunkers) traded in must be scrapped and crushed.

Got it yet? No?

Okay, I'll give you a big bag of yummy candy if you'll trade me your classic old favorite metal and wood toy for this shiny new ugly boring cheaper plastic and paper-mache toy, so I can sell the metal from your favorite toy for scrap and make sawdust out of the wood, thereby forever ridding the planet of your disgusting heavy old clunker of a toy.
Got it now?

Some of us watched the death of the muscle cars in the early 1970's and for two decades beyond. Then in recent years we have seen the birth of the "retro" Mustang, GTO, Charger, Challenger and finally the Camaro... just in time to see them bludgeoned to death again like baby seals in a few years. Hide and watch.

The only way you're gonna draw a crowd to look at one of these new ugly electric cars is to set it on fire and yes, people turn their heads as it goes by alright... the OTHER way!

So, to you morons that are trading in your classic cars or cars that soon will now be classic cars... for Obama's candy and paper mache toys, I say this... I hope the batteries go dead in your Obamacar during a rainstorm 100 miles from the nearest coal powered plug-in someday and you have to hitch a ride with someone in a 55 Chevy.

It doesn't matter if they more money. They problem is still the backlog. Read this article: The Real Reason for the "Cash for Clunkers" Suspension. The ex car salesman blog shares exactly why they stopped the program. Even reports that some sales managers are calling asking for the money back because they were denied the rebate when the final paperwork was submitted but their car was already ruined by dumping a solution in the engine. They now have no car. Scary. See:

This program definitely rates up there in the dumbest ideas this administration has come up with.

I have an idea! Let us set aside money (oh by the way we are broke and we have no money) so that people can get rid of cars they own that are in perfect shape and have no mechanical problems at all so that they can go out and buy a new car and put themselves further in debt.

We want our citizens to be just as in debt as we are so that we can say we relate to their financial problems!

Can we put the adults back in charge again already?

They are talking about adding another $2 Billion or $3 Billion to the "Cash for Clunkers" program. Another two or three weeks of operating room?

We are erasing our history with our borrowed deficit tax dollars, and it makes me sick to my stomach.

Thanks for the visuals in your posts, Red.
