“Obama On Your Shoulder … Again”

“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.

Umm … yeah.

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.

    Obama on my shoulder?   More like Obamaroids on my a… er, hindquarters!

    This guy is the biggest walking piece of hypocrisy I have seen to date, from his thermostat, to his charitable "giving" (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/03/26/us/politics/26taxes.html?ref=politics),  to his feel good, payback support of the Ledbetter executive order (while he blithely underpaid female workers in his campaign as McCain overpaid his: http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/09/i….

    The Imperial Democrat motto: do as I say, not as I do.  Or let them eat cake….

    Change?  The ONE don't need no stinkin' change!   As HE said: "I WON."
