"Dictating design standards"

That was the thought that struck a nerve with me, here. Read it and be scared.

Both John and Billy are correct in their assumptions as well, since the Gummint will have the castrating knife in hand in this, both to the Big Three, and the consumer (You and Me) if this plan ever comes to light.

And seeing as how Obama is the commie-du-jour, I can't see how we'd end up driving anything but an electric version of this, or maybe not even that, considering that most folks I know haven't a clue as to how to maintain their current vehicle beyond 4-5 years (Notice the average lifespan of a Trabant - tells me volumes about the constitution of those people), about the same time when the battery needs to be replaced on their "environmentally friendly" vehicle. So, how is it that these same dolts are going to be able to own a vehicle that absolutely needs a mechanically sympathetic driver and caretaker, when their current, dependable, push-and-play cars can do everything for them except brush their teeth?

I can't wait to see how this plays out.

I love how the magic carbon credit dragon is going to come down and pay for it all. That has to be just about the stupidest thing I have ever, ever heard. God help us if one of these loons wins the Presidency.

Yeah, it's a wonder that these fools don't believe in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, too.

The Eco-Goons just make up stuff as they go, and as long as it sounds good, they'll be able to sell that trash to those who worship at the altar of the Goracle. It doesn't matter if the extra use (like heating an outdoor Jacuzzi) is fundamentally a waste, as long as you pay your sin tax on it first, as if the stiff bill for the gas or electricity wasn't enough.
