    Goverment Motors Goin' Down

    it's late, enjoyed a few too many and been a good eve .........can't help myself and checked in.

    first of all, gov't motors apparently is not going down, nor do i want it to.......but i do appreciate you continuing to say so!!! by all means, please don't stop!

    sori mallen, but some people, me included, think that the domestic automotive industry will be quite healthy going forward. Regarding the earlier poster, I doubt he is asserting as you wrote. One certainly has to ask themselves what would incent a foreign automaker to build a factory in the united states (or anywhere) in the absence of domestic competition. VERY LITTLE. What about the loss of the HUGE amounts of technical prowess gained in producing cars domestically? shall we put a price to that? What about national security? Feel good relying on a foreign producer to come through during an event? WHAT ABOUT THE HUGE TRANSFER PAYMENTS INVOLVED IN SHUTTERING JOBS AND COVERING PENSIONS? What about the loss of government revenue when TAX PAYERS become TAKERS?

    Idiotic???????!!!!!!!!! U haven't a clue........really.......

    You REALLY dont want to ask who makes better cars either. You can hold out for the Camry, 5 Series, Carrera all u want..............they CONTINUE TO GET TROUNCED IN VIRTUALLY ALL PUBLICATIONS.
    American car makers don't make a car to suit everyone. Fine. But they also make many of the BEST cars.
    Gd weekend all............
