Obama, Social Security, My Totalled Car

I young student side-swiped our car a few days ago totaling it.  We need a new one.  I can do everything on a bike, but Blanche cannot.

I had read that Hyundai was making good low cost cars.  We went to see them yesterday.  I was appalled how much of the car was made of cheap plastic that was very vulnerable and sure not to last.  It seemed like a disposable vehicle.

The article about the quality of the GM cheap car struck home.

The car made me think about the CPI.  I am sure that such quality deterioration will not show up in the cost of living, speeding up Obama’s plan for undermining Social Security via the Consumer Price Index.

    What do you mean? plastic will last forever, just maybe not in the form of the desired car! 🙂

    I am enjoying Invisible Handcuffs by the way, and have recommended it to several people, and will loan it out soon.

    Its quality could be proved by the passage of time and in later models. May be its an assumption.
