    The government program "Cash for Clunkers", that the obama administration shoved at us while destroying another market, just bit the dust. The defunct illegal government, that is now occupying Washington D.C., is burning their candle at both ends at a rapid pace. Hawaii or Kenya just get the hell out...Ed

    The biggest winner from this POS program was Toyota. Three of the top five cars purchased were Toyotas.......a real American success.

    Over 50% of the current new home mortgage statements are 2 months past due. This time next year over 77% of home values will be underwater.

    The obama demorats and republicans that voted with them need an address change, now.

    Someone has to tell me how many mortgage holders got help from the government.

    The 700 billion TARP fund last fall was used by the banks to balance their accounts, pay bonuses, buy out other banks, and yes, luxury resort retreat weekends.

    So we pound out another 700 Billion, will someone please name just ONE mortage holder who has gotten help fron the government?

    The biggest understatement of the decade has to be "Obama Buyer's Remorse"

    They are gladhanding the money to various districts for projects that are mostly pork, and pretending how great it is because some jobs are going to happen.

    "Oh", said Alice, " I don't want to go about among mad people".

    "That's all right", said the Cheshire Cat, "Everyone is quite mad here".

    I was at my Ford dealer today buying some gear oil for my truck and the parts guy said they have 56 clunkers that Barry still has not sent them a dime yet. The news said today many dealers across the country have stopped offering the program to buyers.

    "That would bankrupt most dealers." Didn't Government Motors and Chrysler want to close dealerships a whale back? Looks like OB is just trying to help the politically connected dealers by removing their competition.

    I also heard that GM and Chrysler, both bankrupt we are told, are fronting some cash to some of the dealers that are not collecting their bribe from their business partner, i.e. The Federal Government. Isn't it interesting that a bankrupt company owned by the government, can send money to help out dealers they tried to close and use someoneelse's (US Taxpayers!!!) money to do it!!!

    One dealership here in Atlanta sold/traded for 300 clunkers and have been paid for 1. The CFO at the dealership made that announcement on the WSB radio show.


    Typical entitlement program from the goverment tards.

    Get out yer wallets boys, and help Barry pay for these clunkers. You'll get a bumpersticker that reads: Honk if I'm making your car payment!

    Boy this was a great idea. I just heard today that, due to the high sales volume, Government Motors is thinking of hiring back 1400 workers! That ought to bolster the union dues kitty.

    unions came from socialist countries and when unions are padding their pockets history has proven the U.S. economy is headed for the tank. unions are bad for any society, Capitalism and unions do not mix. Outlaw ALL unions and the U.S.A. will be a much better place to live. Ed

    The other day channel 7 news in Ohio reported that from Cincinnati to Dayton there is 36 million dollars unpaid from cash for clunkers. Some dealerships interviewed regret now destroying these cars for fear that they wont get paid and will have to sell them to recoup their losses. Kirk

    brigade, take that back. When unions got started in the US there were no socialist countries. Most of the world was ruled by monarchies with a King or Sultan or some such.

    The union movement got started here because some greedy fat cats were killing the people with workplaces of death and giving them a bare living in return.

    I'm not going to go over it all again but you are dead wrong.

    Yes, UAW is a mess, and corrupt at the top. So is our country. Which do you want to fix first?

    Do your research before you make a broad sweeping false statement, please.
