Cash for clunkers
The heh does his usual snort over big government, inefficiencies, blah blah, not ever catching the true absurdity of the article:
Dale Skreen, left, of Loretto, took a last look at his 1993 Ford F-150 pickup truck before he drove away in his 2009 Ford F-150 XLT pickup. Salesman Adam Notsch helped Skreen get a federal rebate in the Cash for Clunkers program.One of the aims of the "cash for clunkers" program is to put people into more fuel efficient vehicles. This guy traded in a 1993 F150, getting anywhere between 12 and 15 mpg for a 2009 F150 getting anywhere between 12 and 15 mpg, and the dealership gave him the cash-for-clunkers money they didn't have from the federal government yet. Honestly, neither the customer nor the dealer deserve any money for essentially trying to cheat the system.
