fvck gm and ford and all these lame ass companies who are asking for handouts. i'm sick of how this country is turning into a socialist economy where taxpayers pay for others' incompetence. -mervyns just went out of business. should we have given them a billion dollars too? -circuit city is closing 150 stores and is in dire straits. should we give them money to prevent their collapse? -ata airlines went ouf of business a few months ago. should we have given them money too? -and this doesn't count all the small restaurants and little stores and small businesses that are hurting. do they deserve $50b too? why the hell does gm think it's so special? you got yourself in this mess, you get yourself out of it.
