    it sounds like the car is crying... I guess if you can kill a fetus you can kill a volvo. Liberals disgust me.

    No, it's EXACTLY what the gubmint had in mind. They want to destroy what they don't want on the road. I assume the two other SUV's with their hoods open were going to get their engines "disabled" in the same manner.

    These "engine blow" videos are entertaining when done to a motor with a terminal illness like rod knock, but very, very wasteful on cars that were being driven daily a couple of days ago.

    Disabling the engine in that manner prevents it from being recycled to keep another "guzzler" Volvo on the road. So their mission kills two birds with one stone. Any poor sap who can't afford a new car will not be able to find a replacement engine for their vehicle if it needs one.

    Also - they are witholding statistics about the c4c program. Rumor has it that people are buying Hondas, Toyotas and Hyundai's over American brands. I'm sure that the Japanese and Korean's appreciate the stimulus!

    My question is how many people currently drive a car that is older or in worse shape than that Volvo?

    Thank you Mr. President!

    $1 Billion lasted about 5 days. Now they tell us an additional $2 billion will last through November....lets see....

    Anyhoo, where do I sign up for my Lada, Trabant, Tatra or Volga?

    ...and just why am I subsidizing anyone else's purchase of a new car?

    You can have a date with Volga whenever you want. Cheap. $2B.

    Because our govt is now in the auto business. They own GM, Govt Motors, and they need to sell cars.

    And those clunkers they talk about are not clunkers. Alot of them would have lasted many more years.

    And as far as global warming goes, India and China are more than making up for what we are doing to slow it down.

    I do. He ll, I ride my MB to work. Why can't there be a clunker for clunker program for us less than fortunate people who are lucky enough to even still have a job, even if it is under the condition that there will be a pay freeze until the economy starts going back up, and can't afford anything, much less a $40,000 vehicle.

    I wonder if the company that produces Clunker Bomb has any connection with the OhBahMah administration.

    Sodium Silicate instead of oil to destroy an engine, why don't they just drain the oil and run them until the bearings are toast? Why do they need to use this cr@p?

    The Fascist Obama administration is a bunch of sick twisted bast ards. That was no clunker, that was a waste of a serviceable auto. How many human beings really could have used that transportation. Bast ards!

    I just bought a new wrangler about 9 months ago... I fully expect to be saying the same thing in 15 years. It's built like a d*** tank too. It's my second jeep and the government will have to pry this one and my guns from my cold, dead grip.

    This is all about control of the peasants by the King. They can manipulate number on Wall street all they want but in the end America has got millions unemployed sitting at home getting the check. What happens when the money and extensions run out???
