Far more drivers signed up for the “cash for clunkers” program than anyone thought, overwhelming showrooms, blowing through the initial $1 billion set aside by Congress and leaving dealers panicked over when or if the government would make good on the hefty rebates.

*** end quote ***

Sure steal from the taxpayer to give money to car dealers?

No wonder the program is a success.

Like a bank robber giving out free samples.

And, there folks want to run health care?

It’s like everyone had gone nuts. Financial restraint, fiscal discipline, out the window. It’s like a Frat Party on the taxpayer’s dime.

One website pointed out that (1) these are future sales brought forward. (2) the “clunkers” are the cars that poor people would have bought used.

So like Basat said, (paraphrasing) we can’t see the hidden costs.

Politicians and bureaucrats are stupid. And, I ain’t buying them a beer. And, for sure, I’m not drinking with them!

Michelle Obama’s toxic veggie nightmare: White House organic garden polluted with sludge

*** begin quote ***

The White House has sought to downplay the issue, and a number of experts have pointed out that 93 ppm of sludge in soil is somewhat normal for older urban locales. However, the EPA recommends not growing food in soil that has 100 ppm. Several major food producers, including H.J. Heinz and Del Monte, won’t accept produce grown in sludge. That’s despite decades of U.S. government efforts to encourage farmers to use solid sewage wastes in lieu of traditional fertilizer products.

You have to admire liberals. Their hearts are always in the right place. And, their heads are … …

Well, it’s intentions that count; not results. Right?

No one in the gooferment could tell them about this problem BEFORE the big garden photo op?

And, it’s the big bad corporations like Heinz and DelMonte that want to poison us!

ROFL!

I just shake my head.

And, they want to run HEALTHCARE, ENERGY, as well as GM, the Banks, Wall Street and everything else.

They can’t even manage a small garden!

Argh!
