But Dude WMM, there is a flaw in your argument. The program was "sold" under the guise of fuel efficiency. If you put the inefficient cars back on the road, then the four or five billion spent on the program didn't serve the original purpose. Some will claim that it stimulated auto sells, but I think people did what I was going to do, hold off my purchase until the program took effect. So the low sales for the first half of the year were due to buyers waiting for the discount, not an inability to afford a car. Nevertheless, your suggestions are very good and thought out. I drive a 1989 civic. It wasn't considered a clunker, so I didn't buy a new car.

  • Dude Who Makes Movies
    I'm nothing special. In fact, I haven't really done much you would know me by. Raised by great parents, I went to a private Christian school named Kingsview (which I named a failed metal band after later in life), moved to Littleton, CO and attended Columbine Elementary school (which I was glad to have moved away from before my senior year), then moved here to Fairfield and went to Amy Blanc, Dover Middle School and FHS. I had wonderful fights with wonderfully liberal teachers, then attended a little bit of college (went to about 4 or so to play the field), and settled on the San Francisco School of Digital Filmmaking, graduating last year. Since I finished school and started living, I met the love of my life Julia whom I will marry and make babies with, and have started on the path of making my hugely epic movies while continuing to work hard for my church."
