Free Cars?

  • In today's episode of "Why The Hell Do I Bother To Work For a Living," we learn that the city of Sacramento, California, has decided to purchase a fleet of cars that will be made available, free of charge, to 300 residents already using that city's public housing.

    The $1.3 million used to pay for what the Sacramento Bee calls a "mini fleet," came from the state's California Environmental Protection Agency, which in turn got the money by blackmailing local businesses with cap-and-trade fines.

    Gas, maintenance and insurance will also be paid for by the state, which can only mean that the $1.3 million is just the beginning of yet-another very expensive government debacle, but one that will never be repealed because if you take away people's free cars they will die.
As the article goes on to state, California is trying to convince everyone to give up their cars because cars are evil, polluting (and probably racist) machines. But the government is willing to give away electric cars to public housing residents who already receive housing free of charge, utilities free of charge, food free of charge, etc.

What ever happened to the bus/public transit being the way to go?

Kalifornia can't cede fast enough from the rest of the nation. Were that to happen, all the loafers would high tail to the promised land of fruits and nuts. There might still be hope for the rest of the country.

I'm waiting for Kalifornia to raise the personal state income tax to 50% for those making over $100K, so those on the gov teat on get more freebies.

The only thing that prevent Illinois from giving away free electric cars is that our winters are so cold. Otherwise Madigan and Cullerton would be jumping on that bandwagon in order to ensure their re-election into perpetuity.

Entrenched socialism. No incentive to do
better. Something tells me this was a big money
deal between corporations and the state. These
electric cars are not exactly flying off the lot.
You need extensive upgrades for chargers.
What happens when the ganga heads go on an
extended 3-4 day trip in the A.C.'d bedroom?
The car turns into a brick. A useless brick in a
housing project. Just like the residents.

FUCK THAT!!!

What ever happened to:
You want a house? Find something you can afford!
You want a car? Find something you can afford!

But that comes with things like "Job", "Responsibility" and "Work"... Shit that they will never understand.

Just more from the "Where's my free shit!" mentality.

Meanwhile, the ones with the "Job", "Responsibility" and "Work" are paying for it.

Reminds me of the Jesse Jackson Jr. bust.
Most people know about the eye candy.
How about the shit ton of MLK Jr. memorabilia
JJ Jr. scooped up? What was he thinking?
A future black culture museum? A buy and hold,
then sell to Christie's or some other high-end
auction house? Or maybe just a kid and his
baseball card collection? I just feel so much
better when I'm around this historical stuff.
My daddy used MLK Jr.'s blood and connection
as credentials to be a black shake-down artist.
Me, I'm just a son of a shakedown artist. I have no
real value to my people or myself in this life.

Correct. Driving a car, especially an electric car, requires some personal responsibility for regular use. Like putting in gas or charging the thing. That city will be littered with dead cars.

ELECTRIC cars.....yet paying for GASOLINE......see it?

See THAT yet?

Here is the rub - the more rural people, especially the soakers who grew up soakers but moved outside the "inner" city are still expecting their soaking rights to be fulfilled. That is the purpose of this "pilot program" - to A) facilitate the complainers demands for free stuff and B) stave off the Equal Protection claims that are finally brewing on the "inner" city versus suburban traveling public. Is it silly? Of course, which is why it hasn't come to a head before now, but let's face it, generations of gibsmedats are branching out further and further.

Think this ain't coming to Illinois in short order? I bet cops can't WAIT to deal with this in Chicago!

Enough is never enough for the free shit army. It's time for the bullshit to stop! These cars are not being paid for by the state, they'll be paid for by taxpayers! The taxpayers that go to work buy their own food, their own car, their own house and then pay taxes to liberal asswipes that can't give it away fast enough!
Liberals will not spend a dime of their own money on a stupid idea but they'll spend millions of taxpayers dollars on the most idiotic idea. Can everyone in California be so stupid as to support something like this? Insanity! But they did support Obama and Hillary so I guess I answered my own question.

If there's one thing the residents of public housing are known for, it's their valid driver's licenses and impeccable driving skills. Let's give free cars to people who shouldn't be driving. Shit, let's give free guns and ammo to people who shouldn't own guns. It would be nice if these lazy fucks had to actually earn something themselves. Handouts do nothing to improve the problem. Handouts just ensure that the problem will be sustained for multiple future generations. Where is the incentive to get a job or make some effort to better yourself? How does giving someone everything for free convince them to do anything but sit on their ass waiting for more handouts?

Crazy California - gots to have a Free Wheels if you Want to be a Menace in North Central while drinking your Juice.
You would think they'd put that money into education programs, bus tokens, Sect. 8 spruce up & clean-up projects or just blocks of velveeta cheese.

Besides the illegal immigrant AB-60 drivers licenses (800,000+ so far) I guess there's a shortage of vehicles and traffic jams leading into Oakland.
Just don't make any kind of sense to use money for repairing the failing bridges, dams or roads.

Rahm will certainly entertain the idea by strong arming OO-Ber for free cars - so the community can have summer jobs.
The only holdback might be when the cousin takes the free car for drive-by and claim he dindu nuffin.
But since crime is down, misuse of free stuff is hardly to be noticed.

Dams in California are being demolished, or, as in the example of the Oroville dam, not maintained, you fool. Never mind that we get a lot of power from coal-fired plants from out of state:

California’s Dirty Secret: The Five Coal Plants Supplying Our Electricity

Alternative sources? Don't make me laugh. Wind and Solar are bad jokes, unreliable boondoggles which cannot, by definition, address base load, and do a really shitty job handling peak load. Natural gas isn't alternative, it's just fossil fuel. Really handy, too, there's no shortage, and it puts rednecks to work producing it. Hope that chafes your Left wing ass.

Guys, there are many reasons to mock my beloved Golden State, but please keep in mind that every freak that couldn't hack it where he was born moved out here and fucked it up. California acted as the Liver Of The Nation for decades, trapping the impurities here, and you all see the results. Except for Moonbeam Brown, of course. He was born here.

Voting should be restricted to taxpayers. A lot of the shit like Cars For Gangbangers would go away.
