I cannot believe that a sitting Republican president would even consider this course.
I have been a staunch supporter but this really earns them the DUBYA award. Shame.

Detroit is where it is, as is Wall Street, because of greedy, short-sighted management and workers.

They get what they deserve, there is no such thing as a free lunch.


WHAT makes them more deserving than ME???? I have a mortgage on a house, a boat, and a car. Why can't you bail ME out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What imbeciles.

Do you hear what I hear? How about the sound of a new Boston Tea Party?

Get it right.

Shame on them.

A letter to the President and Congress

I have sent the following excerpt from

to the President and my congressmen (since I doubt they read WSJ.COM)

=========== Open Letter to the President and Congress ===========


Bankruptcy doesn't make assets disappear.A government bailout of the Big
Three keeps huge amounts of productive inputs in firms that can't use
them efficiently. The bigger the unprofitable firm, the more vital it is
that it be allowed to fail.

If Washington gives no special subsidies to workers and suppliers
outside of the auto industry, why treat GM, Ford and Chrysler
differently? Are their workers or owners more worthy? Not at all.

It is precisely because the Big Three differ in no essential way from
America's other firms that bailing them out runs a real risk of
cascading into a march on Washington by countless firms and individuals
unable to see why they are less entitled to taxpayer funds.

Like ME!!

If you bail them out then bail me out too!!!

Obama and Hillary

"Limbaugh called the choice of Clinton "a brilliant stroke by Obama.""

I agree with Rush. A brilliant stroke.

But I also have to recognize that we may be at a tipping point. This stroke effectively emasculates dissension within the Democratic party. Gate's reappointment as SecDef takes strides to do so among Republicans.


So, if we have a new president who is inclusive and not partisan or sectarian we may have a real statesman who can actually solve problems instead of creating more, as so many before him, especially since Reagan, have done..

If the Democrats have finally come to the realization that they have plundered this Nation for the past 80 years and now are going to work to fix the damage then I am all behind them. Go for it.

Only the inclusiveness that Obama has shown so far will let this happen.
