    Will Washington force Ford out of business?

    How can Ford compete with Government Motors, which does not have to make a profit, pay its bills, or which cannot run out of money because its owner also owns the money printing presses? We already are being taxed to support GM, so every American that works is paying for a GM car whether or not you own one or would want one. What's to keep Government Motors from undercutting prices of Ford, Toyota, Honda, etc.?

    The real question we mindless Americans should have asked (if we could think) is how can we allow our government to enter into competition with private industry? Obviously this action MUST be outlawed because no private company can compete with an entity that does not have to make a profit and can even tax its competitors to support itself!

    But we are mindless Americans, most of whom have no knowledge of or interest in democracy, fascism, communism, or anything else that we can't smoke, drink, eat, inject, or screw.

    The only hope is that lobbyist for the auto industry will be able to bribe enough congressmen to put a stop to this GM fiasco!
