Another inane idea

Have you ever seen a Smart Car? You know those little tin cans that our supposedly smarter cousins in Europe drive. Anyone who has been to Europe will tell you that the cars are so puny that a person of normal stature can barely get into one. The trunk space is non-existent as is the safety level. Having driven one of the Smart Cars, I can tell you that our European friends are not smarter than us.

Obama wants the average MPG to be 35.5 by 2016. That is the average. I did a bit of research and found that the minuscule Smart 4 Two gets 33 mpg city and 41 mpg highway. Remember that is a puny car. In order to keep that 35.5 average, it seems to me that quite a few of us will have to drive midget cars in order to average out for the trucks that bring us our food, and the trucks that bring workmen to our homes and businesses. Oh, what about those of us who actually want to have kids? Are we going to drive our babies around in a death trap just because it gets high mileage? Remember the numbers above are for the Smart 4 Two. Only 2 people can fit into the trash can. What a joke we are becoming.

Why don't all of the libs who are in favor of this new idea just go out now and buy a super high mileage car? Why must they always inflict their hand wringing on the rest of us before they take action? In every case, libs want to force us to live a certain way that is supposedly good for us, but they never do it until it becomes a law.

Obviously the investment for the next few years will be to purchase big SUV's and trucks and garage them until 2016 when the only cars that will be produced will be the size of the toy cars we drove as kids.

States rights seem to be a thing of the past. For most of us conservatives, we value states rights, and do not like the encroachment of Big Government into our lives. Liberals, on the other hand, think that Big Government is a godsend, and do not… more
