Cash For Clunkers In The Crapper

Well that didn't take long. A program to buy back old energy inefficient vehicles has apparently run out of money 4 days into a program that was supposed to last until October. You got to love government efficiency.
Transportation Department officials called lawmakers' offices earlier Thursday to alert them of plans to suspend the program as early as Friday. But a White House official said later the program had not been suspended and officials there were assessing their options.

These folks want to control your healthcare. This administration is posting one failure after another. The stimulus package that didn't stimulate, a cap and trade policy that right now is capped in congress, and an attempt at card check that got checked at the door.

This morning Libertarian Party former presidential candidate, Wayne Allyn Root, was participating on a panel discussion on Fox and Friends talking about the near beer BS session last night and he brought up the case of the Mustang Ranch in Nevada.

The Mustang Ranch was a highly successful brothel in Nevada, that is until the owner got caught for not paying taxes, and since he wasn't an elected official, got sent to jail. The government took over control of the enterprise and within a year the ranch was out of business. How bad do you have to be to go bankrupt running a whorehouse??

Anyway there are reports all over the place of dealers not being able to get reimbursed from the government for car deals they have already made, that had been approved and now with word that the entire program may be out of money I hope y'all are enjoying all this hope and the change in your pocket.
