A little off the subject, but, do you remember when the government told us the reason for global warming was the COWS, belching Methane Gas? What a joke and yet Al Gore won a Nobel Peace award rather then the little lady that sneaked thousands of Jewish babies and children out of concentration camps in Nazi Germany. I agree, if any of the bailouts had been put to a vote of the American people none of this would have passed. It was so refreshing to see the Amish men driving their horse and buggies on US Hiway 36 on my return trip from Illinois this month. Now, off the soap box and back on the ladder, I am installing a drapery rod in my living room.
Very well stated FR. There is alot of Dealers not seeing any of the money. There is article after article regarding this. Dealers are saying first they would submitt the paper work and it would get rejected by the government saying they didn't complete it correctly. It has also been said that the government doesn't have enough man power to process the refunds. I would like to know if there is any dealers that have been paid. Not to mention the EPA keeps changing the standards so therefore, cars that were once considered a clunker is no longer a clunker. The dealers are destroying the vehicles prior to finding out oh by the way that car isn't a clunker. Then what is the dealer suppose to do. IMO this is going to be another housing market crisis. People want the government handling our health care? That can't handle the programs they have now. I for one don't want the government handling my health. Politicians are forgeting they work for us. We put you in office we will and can vote you out.Cash for Clunkers is just another rip off of the American Taxpayer. The dealers in Colorado Springs have yet to recieve their money from the government to reimburse them for the $4,500.00 they allowed on the trade for the new vehicle. They are being told the check is in the mail but no checks have been recieved to date. This is just another scam by our government, just like the first time homebuyers being given $8,500 or more. Where is all this money coming from and where is it actually going. Has anyone taken $2,000,000,000.00 and divided it by $4,500.00 which will give you how many Clunkers were traded in. You can then divide that by fifty states and you will see this is all just a lot of crap. Why should anyone be given money to help them trade in their old car unless every adult in the United States is given the same amount of money? By the way, that amounts to 444,444 vehicles or about 8,888 per state. It would be interesting to see what tax bracket these people are in that traded in their Clunkers. I would also like to know how many of the new vehicles were made by American companies. Wake up America!!!!!
Cash for Clunkers program is ending Monday night, August 24, 2009, the program has run out of money. The government has been throwing away trillions of dollars but if they don't get off their you know what the Ryan White Funds will be no more before the end of September. I guess they figure if they don't continue funding Ryan White funds there will be a lot of people that will just die and that will be less a burdern on our coming National Health Care System. In my wildest dreams, I never thought I would see my country in the shape it is today. This National Health Care System is just another bunch of CRAP. People need to get an education, get a job, set priorities, have a home, food, life insurance, health insurance and so on. Don't expect someone else to do all this for you. Once you become of age you are to take responsibility for your life, you are not the responsibility of your parents or the government. Now back on the ladder, two more brackets to install, couldn't wait, have one panel of the drapes up so I could see what they will look like. Black Silk with Gold embroidery about the size of bread and butter plates. Sure will be glad when my house is complete.
I completely agree with you.Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. Whether we agree with one another or not we still have our right to the opinions we have. To some extent I agree with FR. Young people today do not want to work for what they want the way the older generations has. We have got to stop with the hand outs. People have got to stop living beyond their means and expecting everyone else to pay for them. When we were growing up we were taught to save for a rainy day. Todays younger generation does not look toward that rainy day.
