For regressives, it’s a feature, not a bug

 

The new world order

The new world order

New cars are increasingly out of reach for most Americans. Except for the apparatchiks in D.C., of course. These are the same people using the same strategy to eliminate guns: make them too expensive to own. When Greenwich Democrat Jon DuBoise proposes a $2 tax on bullets, when his gun control group advocates a $300-$500 per year insurance premium for gun owners, they aren’t seriously trying to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals – they want to dry up the source of guns by making them unaffordable for law abiding citizens.

The same thing with private cars. It drives the regressives crazy that mere peons can just live anywhere they want, drive anywhere they want and do so without permission. So force them back into planned cities by eliminating cars. The so-called cafe standards have nothing to do with saving the earth and everything to do with making cars unaffordable. Obama’s 50 mph mandate, estimated to add $7,500 to the cost of each car, has pushed us farther down the road to unaffordability, as planned.

    have you priced new cars lately? it’s ridiculous.

    depreciation is brutal though, used is by far the best way to go. great deals to be had if you shop smart.

    It’s a better deal than 17 years ago.

    the CAFE standards explain why an Audi A4 costs 34k, but the A6 which is just a little bit bigger – but uses more gas – is 55k.

    same with all the pick up trucks. ford fusion 28k, ford f-150 45k? that makes no sense, until you factor in CAFE requirements.

    Have you visited DC lately? It’s booming! They have no idea what the rest of the U.S. is experiencing. Economic slowdown? What’s that? Out of work? Impossible! They don’t have a clue. They’re all living the good life.
