A new vehicle that travels 12,000 miles a year at 25 mpg uses 480 gallons of gas a year.

So, the average Cash for Clunkers transaction reduced gasoline consumption by 320 gallons per year.

The government claims 700,000 clunkers were replaced, so that is 224 million gallons saved per year.

That equates to a bit over 5 million barrels of oil. 5 million barrels is about 5 hours worth of US consumption. More importantly, 5 million barrels of oil at $90 per barrel costs about $450 million dollars.

So, the government paid $3 billion of our tax dollars to save $450 million. They spent $6.67 for every $1.00 they saved.

We've been assured, though, that they will do a much better job with our health care......

Is these socialists keep pushing those American citizens that value their constitutional rights, the same thing will happen here that is happening in the Ukraine. You can bet on it.

We still have the vote, the target should be exposing the state controlled media that aids and abets a prevaricating White House. "Pravda" should have no viewers.

It seems to me it is starting to happen with the growing idea of independent reporting. I could be wrong though, but I doubt it.

He looks just like the actor who played SATAN on the movie The Bible Mehdi Ouzanni.

Is this a rhetorical or an existential question?
