Since Americans own 60% of GM

Shouldn't we receive a incentive check? I mean when they make a profit, don't we also? Or or or shouldn't we receive a free car? LOL

Wishful thinking?

  • It's all going to go to politicians "pet projects."

    They justify it because they think they know how to spend our money better than we do.

    Do you feel like hitting your head against the wall yet?

  • I feel like hitting something but its not my head. Never in my life did I think the time would come where the govt started taking ownership of a private sector company. The founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves.

  • Carpy, I'm with you all the way! All the sacrifices the founding fathers and others made to create and preserve our country and they're just rapidly chipping away at it all! It should have never come to this.

  • Instead of prosecuting Bush and Cheney for "war crimes" as suggested by the previous question, how about if we IMPEACH Obama instead. For those libs out there, if you get out your well worn copy of the constitution you can come up with 3 violations in less than 10 minutes.

    OP, to answer the question; we are a Chrysler family. Can I just get one or two (two taxpayer household ya know) of their products instead? Thanks! :)
