crash4clunkerCash for clunkers? They have got to be kidding! The full and applicable program subsidized from the Obama Government to allow older cars to be traded for newer ones with up to $4500.00 in federal money has hit the wall in less than week!? Less than a week!

Despite the EPA mileage changes for formerly qualified vehicles, it ran out of money. Despite the incomplete but cautious  information available before it was implemented, it ran out of money. Before the ink was dry on Obama’s signature, it ran out of money!

And this is the same bunch that wants to handle health care for Americans? How stupid do they really think we are? Sure, there are a bunch out there that are clinging to “Yes We Can” because they voted and won’t let go of the propaganda of change simply because Obama said it. There is another bunch clinging to “Yes We Can” because it is their open door to get their fingers into the federal pie and the citizens’ lives. Thankfully, however, many who voted for this administration are beginning to wake up to just what has happened. The promises have been broken and the eyes are opening.

They passed the stimulus – did not read it. They passed “cap and trade” – did not read it. What happened to the five day promise? What happened to the transparency? Beltway “business as usual” as transformed into “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”.

“Cash for Clunkers” is merely an indication of what is in store if this administration continues to move at this speed and behind the veil of “Yes We can”. The lobbies in bed with these people (greendiot lobbies) are twisting the arms and pushing for every “live as we think you should” law they can get.

EPA banned reports on CO2, Congressional Budget Office figures disputing Obama health care promises, public town hall meetings where the President says he hasn’t read all the details…  Is this what was elected in November of 2008? Is this what we have to put up with until 2012?

Now is the time to pay attention and verify every statement, every promise that comes from anyone in Washington DC before our government becomes a “clunker” and we’re paying the “cash”.

An internal memo from the Obama administration (Office of Management and Budget ) may put a lid on “cap & trade” legislation for a while. “Cap and Trade” is a regulation method which forces additional costs onto businesses and power generation facilities for their emissions beyond a set point. Those additional costs (taxes) would then be shuffled by the Federal Government into other areas, specifically, the research of so-called “renewable” energy sources.

Never mind that many of these “renewable” energy sources are already being explored by the private sector and many of the power and fuel companies that would be targeted are deeply involved in the research. Never mind that “cap and Trade” costs would be passed onto the consumer, raising energy and fuel costs at the retail end placing an even higher burden on a struggling economy. Never mind that the entire process is being driven by a government that has swallowed steroids for regulatory growth and expanded government dependency.

Now, an internal memo about CO2, the EPA and the questionable science behind it has surfaced. This memo mentions politically driven motives above science, questions the premise of hazardous CO2 and lifts the hood on the entire debate of CO2, human-caused climate change and political power grabs. Face it. If there is a viable question about the validity of CO2 hazards put forth by a government with an agenda, then it only follows that many of the “facts” we’re being subjected to by the “green” government and a media sympathetic to those goals is also suspect.

A great read on this memo, video from the government committee meeting which references it and more “caught in the headlights” fun is online here: wattsupwiththat
