This is sheer insanity. I'll admit, I just realized today that the government's destruction of the trade-ins wasn't a joke.
This is a public-funded orgy of waste. Taking usable autos and equipment and destroying them? In a time of supposed need, the left is rewarding wastefulness and the mindless destruction of a resource (cheap used vehicles) used by poorer and/or thriftier citizens. The US isn't at war with Islamic fascists, but it is is officially at war with thrift and common sense.
When is this bull#$% going to end?
Imagine the charities or other good causes they could donate these cars too. If they’re that much against profit, then at least donate them to good causes.
My question is what is left for people who cannot afford a new car, those that always buy the clunkers or better. What they going to do? I guess the mexican market is all they will have left, think what those clunkers will be worth when all of ours are gone.
