Another bailout

It was bad enough that the US gov't is bailing out the banking/financial industry even though it was their greed that did this to them.

Now there are talks about bailing out the auto industry.


Did we bail out one car maker (I think it was Dodge/Chyseller(sp)?) in the 80's?

Now, 20 odd years later, we are expected to bail out the rest of them?

The CEOs of these places are blaming everyone but themselves for why their companies are failing.

Not to sound like a crass *sshole, but let them go under.

I'm sure I will get a lot of slack about people losing their jobs, etc.

But I'm sick and tired of every time I turn around, the gov't is bailing out big business and doing NOTHING for the average person.

Last time I checked, driving was a privilege, not a right. So why are we sweating a industry that's basically a non essential commodity? If you look around these days, there's PUH-LENTY of used car lots around. So there's no excuse about not trying to find a car.

I'm sorry that it doesn't go from 0 to 60 in 20 seconds, have GPS, or looks really, really, cool. But if it gets you from Point A to Point B, stop your b*tching!

Hell, we might be doing a good thing here. Without all these new cars on the road, we might be able to improve public transportation (or introduce it in states that don't have it.). Hell, we might be helping the environment(I could be wrong, but f*ck it).

Let me catch ya later, I gottta hike to work. LOL.

Thanks for reading,
