Conspiracy or coincidence? In December, the Japanese government announced a cash for clunkers" program. Trade in your
13-year-old or older vehicle, buy a car that gets 35.5 mpg - must be a Japanese-made vehicle - and get your $2,500
credit. The United Auto Workers started crying that it isn't fair that U.S.-made cars were not included.
The whiny UAW went to Washington. In January, Hillary Clinton went to Japan. On
Jan. 19, Japan announced that U.S. cars were added to the program as long as they got 35.5 mpg. Fat chance.
The UAW whined. Ten days later, the U.S. secretary of transportation announced a problem with Toyota gas pedals, and
then, because the Prius didn't have the same problem, bingo, the Prius has a braking problem.
Coincidence? I don't think so. GM (Government Motors) wants to be No. 1 once again. How do they do it? Smear the
current No. 1. Sounds like politics to me.
Don't take my word on this conspiracy theory. Read the international papers that clearly describe this series of
events. Welcome to the world of socialism. Wake up, America.
