Blog of the Moment: Lola's Diner

Maybe I'm just in a bad mood because of the anger I feel every time I think of the lunatics who are running the USA asylum, but this "Cash for Clunkers" crap makes me particularly mad each time I think of it. It's wasteful, it's stupid, and most of all it's criminal (more stolen money going to the well-off and the auto companies -I don't know about you, but I can't afford a new car right now, and I know of not a few who want to trade-in "clunkers" to buy a brand new Lexus or Mercedes) and evil (it's evil and cruel to deny the poor transportation, and poor people buy those used cars that are now being junked by the hundreds of thousands).

Anyway, this post sealed the deal for Lola's Diner, and it is now Blog of the Moment.

The biggest thing that strikes me about this whole program is what a waste. What a waste of some perfectly good, running cars. And in some cases some even perfectly good looking, good running cars.

And if this isn't the biggest joke, my 2006 Honda Pilot 4WD qualifies. Why in the hell would I trade in and have shredded a perfectly good looking and running, like new, 2006 vehicle? That's insane! I love my Pilot! Even though I was seriously suffering through the gas prices last summer, I never considered parting with it. It does what I need, gets me where I need to go comfortably and stylishly.'s paid for. I could never even consider taking on a car loan at this point in time. I am sure I'm not alone.

I find it absolutely amazing that so many people have taken advantage of this program, considering the economy and the recent difficulties in obtaining credit. How can anyone consider taking on a car loan when they aren't sure they're not going to be part of their employer's next lay-off? Couldn't the government find a better way to stimulate the economy? And why is it that the automobile industry is benefiting yet again? What other things does the government have up it's sleeve to benefit the automobile industry?

I had a conversation with a woman who is still happy with her 1993 Ford Taurus, but her grown, busybody children encouraged her to join the thievery and buy a new vehicle using the clunkers rebate. As she explained to me "It gets me where I need to go just fine". Still, because her kids were persistent, she was going to go look at some new cars.

In this corrupt society today, if you are sane and dare to question the insanity around you, you're labeled insane, while the truly insane who promote and encourage the craziness are "normal" and "mainstream". Sick!
