The lastest news is that GM is not doing well and could conceivably file for bankrupcy. This is on the heels of a Toyota campaign on TV which tries to make us feel all warm and fuzzy about how American they really are. Hyundai is building a huge plant or two here. Last time I checked we were spending millions to protect South Korea from North Korea and now Hyundai is coming over here and competing with GM and other companies who have to pay higher wages and benefits to all their retired workers. The problem with GM is that it's corporate executives have spent more time figuring out how to pay themselve more than trying to make a car that can compete with the foreign cars. All that being said do we want our two remaining auto companies to shoot craps ? Toyota takes all its fat profits back to Tokyo and all the good upper management jobs are in Japan ,while we get the blue collar jobs here Yipeeee! I for one am going to shed my German sedan for a GM sedan which is really painful but I think we have to take a stand before its too late. Other wise we have Germany and Japan owning the US Auto market ==whats wrong with that picture ? In the name of owning a slightly better ( well ok alot better in the case of a Toyota) are we going to turn our backs on what we know is long term a better future for our country?
