What's Mallard raving about today?
Cash for Clunkers, Taxes.
I have to give a "Thank You" to Mallard today.
See, I have never quite understood why Republicans hate Cash for Clunkers.
As an economic stimulus measure, it injected cash directly and immediately into an ailing part of the economy, directly helped an industry which employs millions of people (thus staving off a worse economic crisis). And since we, as a country, now have a major stake in the Auto Industry, it benefits us long-term if the Auto Industry grows in value. Not to mention potential benefit to the environment (which I realize the care nothing about.)
But today, Mallard crystallizes, for everyone to see, why Republicans hate Cash for Clunkers.
Because, while there may be massive and widespread benefit for the country, none of it helps Mallard personally. And if it doesn't help Mallard personally, then he's against it.
This is the definition of Patriotism...of a sort...I guess.
Anyway, thanks for clearing that up, Mallard.
