We Are The Thieves We’ve Been Waiting For! Part 2.

So I posted an article (blog, commentary, diatribe, ect) about the wonderfully screwed up Cash For Clunkers fiasco where the government isn’t upholding it’s end of the bargain and not paying the car dealerships what is owes them and causing many of them be be even more financially strained than they already are.  Well time for even more fun:

“A $300 million cash-for-clunkers-type federal program to boost sales of energy-efficient home appliances provides a glimmer of hope for beleaguered makers of washing machines and dishwashers…”

Great, the government couldn’t even pay up on the Cash For Clunkers BS and now they are going to pull the same thing with your washing machine or dishwasher.

“Beginning late this fall, the program authorizes rebates of $50 to $200 for purchases of high-efficiency household appliances. The money is part of the broader economic stimulus bill passed earlier this year. Program details will vary by state, and the Energy Dept. has set a deadline of Oct. 15 for states to file formal applications. The Energy Dept. expects the bulk of the $300 million to be awarded by the end of November. (Unlike the clunkers auto program, consumers won’t have to trade in their old appliances.)”

Wow they won’t have to trade in the old one, who cares, that’s not the really issue.  The issue is that not only is this not constitutional but the government refused to pay up on their last BS rebate program what makes anyone think they will pay up on this one?  They won’t, so if you sell appliances and are even thinking about this stop it right now before it’s too late.

And to Obama and all the people thinking up this crap, stop it right now.  Here is the best advice you will ever get:

Anything you think of doing, no matter how large or small, no matter how good it sounds do the opposite.
