What, our tax dollars aren’t good enough for you? How ’bout we make you buy one of our Chevy Volts (as soon as we figure out how to stop them from catching fire)?
Thanks to Linda, this was taken in the parking lot of the Bass Pro Shop in Nashville, TN:

Hahaha – Bass Pro Shop, rather than Lowe’s. Or Costco. 😀
History shows that Ford went through extreme ups and downs economically, making the company stronger because of it. Too bad our “elite betters” don’t know history, reject any lessons it might have for us, and “rescue” those “too big to fail” because their buddies are hit in the pocket book.
Redistribution of wealth never works – it just hurts.
I feel kinda like a peasant in England of old, with King John squeezing every ounce of blood and money from me, before those noblemen made him sign the Magna Carta.
Unfortunately, all our “noblemen” have sold their souls to the Romney cause, it seems. 🙁
lol…good one. I’ll never buy a GM vehicle.
Ford, the Last Great American Car Company
Nice product these days too
Where can I get one of those for my Ford?
Kerr, I tried to post a link to an ebay site that sells both tee shirts and bumper stickers, but it wouldn’t post, perhaps due to an auto system that prevents posting of spam (eBay). Anyway, you can find either on eBay simply enough.
You may choose to white out the UAW logo.
Just another “technological edge” foisted on us by GM. Imagine, forty grand for a car that can go a whoppin’ forty miles on a charge! Didn’t the electrics that existed at the turn of the twentieth century have similar properties? If so, just how far have we come???
The whole GM fiasco was evident to anyone with to neurons to rub together early in this administration. Instead of a simple bankruptcy procedure, those in charge in DC opted for a bailout followed by bankruptcy. Doesn’t this fall into the ol’ “double whammy?”
Ya jis gotta luv them thar’ guv’ment people…
The GMC buyout was no fiasco. It worked exactly as it was intended. The company was removed from shareholders and given to the UAW.
If you mean the current administration’s goals. Otherwise the stock/bond holders and taxpayers took it in the shorts.
If you buy Ford, you are still putting money in the pockets of the UAW. So, sorry, no thanks.
The GM/Chrysler bailouts were essentially bailouts of the UAW. Obama overturned half a millenium of bankruptcy law to put the secured creditors, normally first in line, behind the unsecured creditor UAW. The result was pure theft of about $40 billion from bondholders just for the GM deal. The UAW was the beneficiary.
Bottom line, its not Ford vs the bailed out GM & Chrysler. Rather, it is taxpayers/bondholders vs the UAW.
Thinking of buying a new car/truck? Don’t give the UAW any money!
