Several sources are reporting this story, but I got it from USA Today:
Hoping to boost auto sales and reduce pollution, the U.S. House has passed legislation to give Americans up to $4,500 to scrap their gas-guzzler and buy a new car.
The so-called cash-for-clunkers bill sets aside $4 billion for electronic vouchers to entice owners of older vehicles to buy new, more-fuel-efficient models, AP writes. The vote was 298-119.
Oh, yeah, a $4,500 electronic voucher for somebody driving a “clunker” to buy a new car is going to work reeeeal well. After all if I, as a newly unemployed person, am driving a clunker (which I am, because it is paid for!), then how in the hell is giving me an electronic voucher going to enable me to make the payments on a new vehicle?
Dementia. They’re all suffering from dementia. Or maybe they’re just really, really out of touch with reality because they never actually use their own money to pay for anything.
*sigh* And we will all be paying for these “free” vouchers through our taxes. Or, if I don’t get another job soon, you will be paying for it through your taxes.
That’s actually quite a good reason for not getting another job except for that whole starvation thang, although I could stand to lose a few pounds!
Oh, Gawd. I’m up too late. The infomercial on how to make a fortune part-time on Ebay is on. G’night!
Maybe the government will give me $4,500 per clunker and I can auction them off on Ebay. Hmmmmm.
Or maybe I can collect 10 or 15 clunkers and get $4,500 for each one, and then buy me a nice lil’ $50,000 fuel efficient
truck vehicle with all those vouchers.
Oh, snap! I could be earning over a million dollars a year selling
worthless crap collector’s items on Ebay! I won’t hardly even need to know how to use a computer. Shucky dern. My money worries are over. I’ll sell my crappy woodcarvings rustic crafts on Ebay, carrying them to ship to the auction winner in my new car that I traded the clunker in for.
bullsh** fairy dust is gettin’ deep tonight, ain’t it?
