The Democrats in Congress are leading the charge to both save one of their prime voting blocks (the UAW) and to nationalize the Auto industry. Giving GM and Chrysler loans is nothing more than a band aid as well as lost money. Yes, there will be definite consequences if the “Big 3” go under. But donating taxpayer money will only prolong the problem, not solve it. I say let the chips fall as they may. If GM, Chrysler, and Ford can turn things around by producing quality vehicles, that’s great. But if their mismanagement and the greed of the unions continue, they’ll appropriately go out of business, and the market will have spoken.

My wife and I were at Sam’s Club last weekend, and there must have been at LEAST 4 people in line when we were with LCD or Plasma Flat Screen TV’s. My son and I went to Circuit City last night in our quest for a Wii (we found one at the 7th store), and saw 3 people in line with flat panel TV’s. A friend at work has a theory that families are buying a “family gift”, rather than more individual gifts. Whatever the reason, there are people still buying big ticket items, but I think that next Christmas, you’ll see major cutbacks.
Throwing more money into the educational cesspool does not equate to higher quality education.
My co-worker and I came up with ONE good outcome of B. Hussein being our next POTUS: our guns will rapidly increase in value (small consolation compared to all of the rights we’ll be losing).
No more tourist trips to NYC or New York State for MY family. Gov Paterson apparently wants to punish people in the form of insane taxation. Citizens of New York will have to live with their decision on electing this yo-yo as Lt. Governor (or whatever New Yawkers call the vice-governor), but as someone who lives out of state, I don’t; it’s bad enough that we have Fast Eddie.
You can pick your friends, you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your parents, even if they are 3 fries short of a Happy Meal….
