    Car buyers are most loyal to these brands

    Ford has loyal customers. They earned it. GM is handling this horrible sequence as well as can be expected. It is unfortunate that so many of the recalls derive from cars and brands no longer produced. Keeping their eye on the product and customer will get GM where they want to be. The vehicles are terrific.

    As I thought, Impala and the trucks are huge winners. What more can be said about Corvette and Camaro. Best in class. Buick is finding its sweet spot. Love this little Chevy Spark too. The ATS 3.6 awd is a terrific car. Nice.

    The word you were looking for is conscience. That's okay, you'll do better next time. Practice, practice, practice.

    Sorry.....couldn't help myself.

    as long as 1890/1900 holds as support in the s and p, this is a very cheap entry. Everything changes if the broader market gives way.

    What are you doing on a GM message board??? Try the local political fundraiser for your rants. This is a board for people investing (or not) in General Motors.

    While your buddies at the races may cheer you on, I can assure you, I find your rants absolutely clueless. You "took a chance" in a crowd "knowing they hate Obama"? That is priceless!!! Btw, if you are writing from one of our great states south of the old Mason Dixon line, most are part of a taker culture (and have been for 100 years or more). When will you actually pay your bills? Freeloaders..............

    You find Democrats un American? Knock yourself out. Your right to feel that way. My right to say get outta here.............

    How sad

    I believe you are making his point. The title of the post is "How Sad". Was Delphi an American company? Yes, quite assuredly. In fact, as was pointed out, all taxpayers now own a large percentage of their pension obligations as one piece of proof. Hooray. Exhilarating. For this privilege of Delphi debt we now own, we have a Delphi domiciled, not in the U.S., but in the UK, in order to pay lower taxes. Mind you, all the corporate officers are in Troy Mi.. It is yet another in an ongoing string of corporate inversions and other tax arbitrage schemes. Hooray again.

    Jeye wrote, "This is where we should have a big tax (read tariff) on everything they ship here."

    So YOUR question Wngr is, " Is it (a corporation) supposed to function as some kind of social program to provide jobs, or is it supposed to provide a return to the people that invest in it with their hard earned cash?" The answer is one and the same! By providing jobs, it ultimately provides the juice to the economy that produces the retail sales that drive stock price. Absent employed (much less well paid) Americans, your question is moot.
    But you assume there is only one main question. In point of fact, the issue is far more complex. A question I might ask is, "Why as a tax paying citizen of the United States and an investor, would/should I EVER be willing to subsidize a corporation (think Delphi, Walgreens) by me paying higher taxes in order that THEY pay lower taxes?

    Absent even BASIC international trade, pollution, human rights and wage agreements and with NO functional international body to look at the above, can any rational tax payer continue to subsidize/promote wage, pollution and tax arbitrage? I answer, No.

    Is GM American? Yes. Domiciled here. Pays taxes here. Just hired 4,000 industrial engineers. That number is 80% of Delphi TOTAL US employment.......................

    Just a tremendous post. Intellectually stupefying when the "taker states" try to lecture conservative economics!

    So let me see if I have this straight. Tennessee PAYS Volkswagen to UNDERPAY their workers and then take their profits offshore?? Sheer genius.
