"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Cash for Clunkers was one of the stupidest ideas I've ever heard.  I guess they thought people would line up to buy Volts.  Just like they thought people would line up to sign up for Obamacare.

It pales in comparison to Obamacare. :peeonobama: There is no doubting Cash for Clunkers was a test market for Obamacare, a check to see how stupid Americans can be. :wtf:

The used car market suffered because of that piece of junk!  My son and I went car hunting for my granddaughter who was starting college. The prices of used cars made my head spin.

I really no longer view any of these things as "failures."  To term it a failure, one would have to assume that it had some positive goal(s) or objectives at its core, that were not met.  Call me extremely jaded (go ahead, I can take it!! lol), but I believe that all of these programs are intended to "fail" as they do, taking out more Liberty, more Freedom, and chipping away at the overall economy.  No, I don't see these "people" (I use the term loosely), as incompetent bumblers that can't just seem to "get anything right!"  Every stinking law and regulation somehow serves the overall purpose of destroying the Republic...

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. I'm reminded of the movie, "Soylent Green", when  E.G. Robinson is watching a beautiful video of how America used to be before he was euthanized. So sad...
