I agree and will tke it one step further. There are many out here lke us who can’t afford a new car and always buy used. The cars they are destroying are not that old and are most likely more energey efficient than older cars are. So in one action they have hurt the poor and the enviroment with this program.

Fox News yesterday showed them taking a 1989 Ford Truck which looked in pretty decent condition, and killing it. They poured some pink liquid in the engine (something silicate) and then turned on the car, to let it run until it seizes up.

The truck was probably worth about $2000 on Craigslist, even if it has high mileage. Truck mileage hasn't changed much in 20 years, maybe it gets 12mpg instead of 15. What a stupid waste, to take something useful and valuable and destroy it. And then, to add insult to injury, they add to the national debt by $4500 each time they do it. It was hard to watch them ruin that vehicle.
