Sadly, I don't blame them....

The UAW has pretty-much killed the auto industry here. Why the hell does somebody deserve $70/hr for a brainless job, then get to show up drunk or smoke dope during lunch and STILL not get fired? The unions are holding the corporations hostage in this. Do I agree with the way the corporations are run? Heck no!! but, they're hands are tied to an extent by the unions.
I look for the big 3 to use the bailout money to pay lobbyists in trying to get import tariffs removed...then, they'll build the cars in Brazil and sell them here in the US for a better profit.

'No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders.'
-- Samuel Adams (letter to James Warren, 4 November 1775)
