I could talk for days about these bailouts, but I don’t think you’re interested. We shoud be interested, but I’m just sick of it. Here’s the bottom line: We’re rewarding failure and punishing success. So many Americans want to tax the hell out of rich people and successful corporations, and they want to bail out companies that sowed their failures years ago. The auto industry has been failing for years. It’s not just because the economy is down for a year. They produced CRAP in the eighties and nineties. Toyota and Honda saw an opportunity, produced a quality, reliable product, and they took market share. The auto unions have gotten out of control, and they are sucking the life out of the industry. They have made it impossible for the “Big Three” to compete.
What’s your take? What do you think the long-term effect of all of these bailouts will be?
