Bailout part deux
I'm just wondering, but did the railroads, wagon makers, steam ship builders, and purveryors of old-timey penny farthing bikes ask for a bailout when it became painfully obvious that they were making a product whose time had passed? I know the rail-roads employed a lot of people back in the day, but I don't think they asked for a bailout when Mr. Ford's model T started rolling around. So congratulations GM, Ford, and Chrysler. No one likes your cars, most of them are ugly and have crap reliability, and people in So Cal definitely need more hummers (no jokes please), so I definetly think the government should give you money to keep building more. And please, don't just build more cars, build biggers ones. And guarantee lots of big benefits to the Unions! Hooray Unions! (and now some guy with a pseudo-italian accent is going to come knock on my door and I may never post again)
Also, wasn't it just a few weeks ago that we were told if we didn't give the financial industry an astronical sum, we would all spontaneously combust, or have some similar horrendous fate befall the free world. And it had to be given immediately. No waiting, no questions asked. Well, they are still trying to figure out what to do with the money, and we are all still here. So, keep that in mind when they discuss how GM has to have money - NOW!
And if anyone hasn't heard the rumors, this lady might be my new boss... So I got that going for me, which is nice.
P.S. If anyone out there is thinking: "Oh, Rob just complains about problems, he doesn't offer any solutions." You are wrong, I have tons of good ideas. Just wait until the Candrian 2032 campaign starts rolling...
