“You can’t drive your SUVs and heat your home to 73 … ” and yada, yada, yada. And this coming from the man who heats his home, well our home, to above 73. Now he wants to take away your SUVs too. No really … he does.

SEMA is the specialty equipment market association and helps car part retailers like myself with product research and legislation that could affect our business. When I read this, I thought it was a joke, but it’s actually true. This one will blow your mind.
The so-called “Accelerated Retirement of Inefficient Vehicles Act” is “Cash for Clunkers” with a twist. Instead of focusing exclusively on old cars as is typical with scrappage programs, this bill will target any vehicle with lower fuel-economy ratings. Participants will receive a cash voucher [given the minimal $1,500–$4,500 voucher value] to purchase a more fuel-efficient new car or used car (model year 2004 or later) or receive credit for the purchase of public transportation tickets.
Thanks Nick. And you thought they just wanted to control your plastic bags, and plastic bottles, and cigarettes, and property, and guns, and free speech, and … oh never mind. Thought you might enjoy hearing this one again. This is why I love MKH. Have fun!
And … you can read her stuff here.
