And so my question is, with nearly 700,000 used cars off of the market, what has happened to the cost of used cars–the cars people of meager means might buy?
Well, it’s been what, over a month since the State Department started the process to determine whether the events in Honduras amounted to a coup, legally speaking, as opposed to, you know, Presidential or Secretary of State speaking.
The answer, as of the August 3rd Daily Briefing at the Department of State, is:
QUESTION: Do you acknowledge that it was a coup, a military coup?
MR. CROWLEY: Well, there are legal issues there that we have chosen not to exercise at this point. But clearly, in every way possible, we have said that what happened in Honduras is a violation of the OAS Charter, which is why we took action against Honduras. It’s a violation of the Inter-American Charter, the Inter-American Democratic Charter. And we continue to work intensively to try to resolve the situation.
Stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, I can assure you of one thing: This gang couldn’t shoot straight if they owned a gun in the first place.
