    This is just plain stupid. If we offering government funded guarantee's on warranties? And this is not a red flag to anyone on the Hill. And really, how many people out there actually trust the Feds to step up to the plate when their car catches on fire while dropping the kids off at school. The follow through, or lack there of is leaving alot to be desired right now and I have zero confidence that they would take care of things once GM goes out of buisness.

    Let them fail and burn, that's the great thing about a capitalistic economy, it will recover eventually without throwing billions of dollars down the toilet. This is like beating a dead horse.

    good point. it doesn't matter who the president is, the same stuff will happen. the president has minimal clout. they might as well be a king.

    unfortunately that really is the attitude of most of the population that is unhappy with the direction we are headed (and have been headed for quite some time, under each parties rule)... apparently its a lot easier to shrug it off and say "oh well, there's nothing i can do" than to actually stand up for what you believe and do SOMETHING... hell anything is better than nothing... write letters to your reps... call them... talk to people, educate them, encourage them to act as well... make some damn ripples on the pond, if enough like minded people get together and stand up for something, those ripples become waves, and if the wave gets large enough, things will have no choice but to change or be washed away
