subsidize humvee sales
I must say that I am confused, hackle. The US is turning to hybrid/electrical/solar(?) cars, as the Europeans have been doing before them. And for decades we've been aware of keeping a smaller, lighter car on the road is just cheaper!

Hackle, you tell me: with all that low-priced oil, wouldn't it make sense to return to SUV's, Arnie Swarzenegger's Humvee and assorted road-'tanks', even subsidize the bloody monsters, to get the US public buying and DRIVING again??
