    This is going to enable people to buy cars they can't afford, causing a mass repossession. Why does that sound so familiar?

    I do not think they will be offered the financing this time; not without providing income statements, collateral, second party, etc....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Most of the folks that have the clunkers, won't be able to get the financing, if that's the case. However, I'm gonna bet that you're wrong.

    Many have failed to mention--including the OP--that the droppage in donation has a lot to do with the economy. Also, with the price of gas going up once again, I wonder how many low income people can afford to drive anyway.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    If they can't afford to drive, they can't afford a car note.

    *Sigh*. You used to be able to have a conversation around here without trolls doing drive-by's just to stop a thread conversation from ever even starting.

    You know, anyone who doesn't want to discuss the topic or finds it beneath them to do so is free to not comment on the thread.

    That is what i try to do, although it is really tempting to indulge (feed the troll) sometimes

    Your statement is just as melodramatic.
    No, if you either remove the supply of cheap used cars or drive their price up your causing more problems than your fixing.

    Poor people live on yesterdays car models.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
