I was chattering with a guy who was:
1) crazy, and
2) hated cars.

One of the things he typed at me in all caps was that automobiles are "INTERSTATE HIGHWAY TRUST FUND SOCIALISM".

My best guess is that he was railing against our dependence on automobiles and was particularly annoyed that the auto industry's had a number of handouts from the government (consider the public works project to build the interstate highway system). I'm not sure I'd call that a trust fund, but it explains the socialism bit.

Really though -- this guy was seriously a few bats short of a belfry.
