    No evidence of that yet. I would expect that interpretation, since you are determined to find fault, but it might be a good idea to wait for evidence.

    i offered an opinion. So sue me.


    Yeah, I hope it falls on its face and embarrasses Obama. It is not the governments place to take my money and give it to people who want new cars.


    I find that, far more offensive, than my hopin for the programs demise.

    Ohan F fox for this whole "subscribe now" crap. All of them who think they can now charge for this are still living in the dark ages.
    I think they will eventually get their stimulus money. That should not be the point. The point is that the economy is being artificially stimulated by the government, and eventually, when it becomes to costly, the government will have 2 choices:

    1) Keep pouring money in.

    OR

    2) Stop pouring money in.

    In the first case, our debt will begin to take a very serious toll on the economy. In the second cases, the market will take over, and we will see how weak our economy really is. Either scenario does not look that great. In my opinion, if the government had just left well enough alone, it would still have hurt, but not as badly.

    This is a just a "sliver" - as Obama would put it - of the cluster**** that government-run healthcare would be like.

    "Cash for Clunkers" was like running a lemonade stand. Government healthcare would be like running the entirety of Wall Street in comparison.

    Comparing a short term program to a long term program is kinda disingenuous. All programs, almost without exception, started by any one, have troubles when they first start. A short term program doesn't have time to fix the problem and run smoothly, getting past that initial bad impression.
