Joe Biden to America: Stay off planes, trains, and automobiles

In discussing the swine flu pandemic this morning with Matt Lauer, Vice President Joe Biden stated that he would advise members of his family to not enter into confined spaces, such as planes, trains, and automobiles. So in essence Joe Biden has just doomed the entire mass transit system of this nation. Can you just imagine the ecological disaster that would cause upon our planet. 300,000,000 Americans putting their cars on our roads would certainly create a whole lot of green house gasses.

That would be devastating if anybody listened to Biden other than the media and if there were actually 300 million cars owned by Americans.

Flavor, he's using that new Nancy Pelosi math. :-)

As far as Biden, your not hinting he's irrelevant are you?

Flavor Country said...

To me yes, he is irrelevant. His reputation has now earned him as to someone who should not be taken seriously. I wish he was never chosen as VP.

I think Stormin is using that Pelosi math too :)

247,421,120 privately registered vehicles as of 2005 DOT stats ... just had to find out.

Chuck said...

You figure a likely increase over 4 years and you didn't have too bad a guess. I would have put it about 2/3 of that

Remember to subtract in repossessions and cars that no longer work that sit in the backyard and those old folks that have big Cadillacs that just sit in front of their houses.
