    Re: Trucks win in Cash for Clunkers game



    The OP's questions didn't have a THING to do with the relative fuel economy between the vehicles traded in and the vehicles purchased, only the types of vehicles being purchased, especially as contrasted with White House claims about the types being purchased.

    Red herrings. Strawmen. Non-sequiturs. Some of you understand that that's what you're employing. Some of you don't. I'm not entirely sure which is worse.

    Still avoiding the questions, eh?

    I will tell you what, I will answer your question as soon as you answer one based on your premise: How will increasing the fuel millage of vehicles result in an increased demand for fuel?

    You've already claimed the questions were logical traps based on a flawed premise, an assertion you have failed to support -- and so no, I will not do anything with your red herring.

    You simply do not want to address the questions asked of you and you're doing all you can to avoid having to do so.
    Telling.

    Seems like both of you are at a Mexican standoff.

    Goobie, they're still trying to figure out how to answer why we're still in Iraq, why we've beefed up troops in Afghanistan, why we haven't even begun to close Gitmo, why unemployment has skyrocketed despite the stimulus, why only corporate America is the only part of the economy recovering, why Medicare is about to be cut down under UHC, and an assortment of other broken promises from Obama still linger.

    Slow down.

    No... I asked the question and she refuses to answer.
    That's not a standoff, that's her running away.

    I pointed out that your questions are based on a flawed premise. Until you address that flawed premise, I would be foolish to answer the question. At least mine is an honest question, and would allow you to actually clarify your question.

    You made that claim.
    You have not yet shown that claim to be true - see my post to that effect.

    Until you do show that claim to be true, or until you actually adsdress the question, you're simply desperately avoiding the issue.

    Not that I blame you.

    And as always, you continue to try and mislead. Check out the title of the thread that you yourself made. While demand for fuel might go up, it is not, as you imply, going to be due to "Cash for Clunkers", which should hopefully reduce fuel demands.
