the government is f'ed up

I love this "Cash for Clunkers" program the government has now. If you were STUPID ENOUGH to buy big ass gas guzzlers, you are now rewarded with up to $4,500 dollars when you trade in your vehicle. What about those of us who bought economy cars in the first place? Where's OUR $4500?

This program is almost as screwed up as the PA state budget.

State employees haven't been paid in weeks while Rendell is signing a bill for another six or seven more weeks of unemployment. So while state troopers and corrections officers and people who work in state run homes (to name a few) AREN'T being paid, people who sit on their ass at home collecting unemployment ARE being paid.

If that isn't fucked up, I don't know what is.

I don't think it's just for gas guzzlers. My boyfriend's parents are doing it with an old ford explorer they have, and he's doing it with a small pick up truck. His truck gets about 20 miles or so to the gallon.
