Let's Bail Out GM


Recommended Posts

This was precisely the topic I was posting on in another site when I was banned. Most people don't care. Those that think they care are woefully misinformed. It isn't as though they want vengeance because their '86 Pheonix was a piece of crap - the general public honestly believes we can get along just fine without a manufacturing base.

On the tree hugger sites, they want all manufacturing banished because it is 'dirty.' (It's okay for the Chinese to poison themselves, though.) In some quarters of society today the automobile is the source of all evil and General Motors is the flash point.

It is a very different, more selfish world than in '80 when Congress bailed out Chrysler.

The underlying message being that Americans/Canadians don't want to risk soiling (or gnarling) our hands. As though we cruise the the ether as high-minded philosophers, spawning high-concept sh*t as free-flowing as our beer-farts that we can sub-contract other societies to manufacture.

The malaise afflicting North America gives contrary testimony to that. (imo)
