    Re: the "VOTE for Who Gets the $$$$" Poll

    gee, you were Fast, Sobe
    but
    I'd love to see some discussion - - or even a flame war (haven't had one in FOREVER)
    & think this topic is a 'natural' ;)
    so
    [lighter fluid]
    here's my reasoning:

    - FORD deserves it cuz they've got such a good plan they may not even Need it
    - GM has to get it cuz their collapse would be of major harm to the country
    &
    - Chrysler shouldn't get it/them (tho maybe a Real Bailout is OK**)
    • cuz they don't even exist any more IMHO - were BEATEN TO DEATH's DOOR by those Germans
    • and I think of them as CERBERUS, not MOPAR now
    • I do NOT trust the mgmt team they've assembled
    • and given my opinion of OurGov'mint, U.S. business 'leaders', &, yes, the American people...
      ...NoBody will take this seriously until there's at least ONE DEAD BODY
      rotting-and-stinking up the whole place
      and lying there as a Get-Your-Nose-Rubbed-In-It THREAT.


    ** I'd love to see Chrysler resurrected
    but have no confidence the current rigamarole is going to lead to that
    &but, I'm NOT against a for-real, honest BailOut

    [/lighter fluid] ;)

    Re: the "VOTE for Who Gets the $$$$" Poll

    I voted for all three. Honestly, I really don't wanna see anyone go down in flames. I just simply love cars. There's people who are fanboys to a specific brand. They laud and adore thier favorite, and sometimes trash other brands. Though I have a top favorite (Ford :p), I enjoy comparing all cars, and try to find the good in all of them. I have some dislikes about some cars, but don't outrightly hate any specific brand...except Toyota...minus the Supra - Supy's good.

    Still, there's the ever-nagging line between fantasy and reality. And unfortunately, I don't think Chrysler's going to make it. They've fallen pretty far, being driven into the ground by Daimler-Benz. Also, few of their vehicles have been getting very good reviews (from what I've seen). On another note: although I don't have any data in front of me, I'd be willing to bet that Dodge is selling better than Chrysler or Jeep. (personally, I'd pick Dodge over either, too). It's just the sad truth, really. And I know a ton of people who will absolutely HATE to see Dodge disappear.

    So there's my take on the matter.

    I voted for all 3.

    I think all three should receive Federal help. We (the USA) can't stand to loose them or even one of the Big 3 because if you think the economy is in bad shape now, you ain't seen nothing yet if one of the Big 3 falls.

    Re: the "VOTE for Who Gets the $$$$" Poll

    Mchicha, in a real sense I don't believe it's 'fair' to treat all 3 the same
    since their circumstances & needs are different.
    ...sort of a 'triage' where
    Ford is assured of a *nourishing diet* down the road
    Chrysler needs a heart, 2 arms, & a brain *transplant*
    &
    GM ...umm... I've been wondering if part of their cure needs to involve Siamese-twin/triplet *surgery* - - if they're TOO BIG to allow them them to fail,
    shouldn't they be split into smaller pieces for the "country's sake"?

    (disclaimer: I don't have the law knowledge to know if anything like that could be done LEGALLY)
