Overheard

At last night's holiday party:
What they should really do is let the Oil industry bail out the Auto industry. Hell, they could do it out of petty cash and never miss it.
Truer words were never spoken.

Do you ever send these to the Obama website as suggestions? Might be worth a shot

Except for the fact that the only way anyone would ever bail out a failing company that has more debt than worth, loses money with every car it sells, and that pays workers for not working, would be if that person was using other people's money.

Wow, bail out companies who have lost money for decades, will make no substantial changes in how they operate their business and compel a specific sector of industry that does know how to make money, even though they have taken a 68% loss in revenues over the last few months. No exactly a bunch of "free market" folks is it?

Bankrupcy is the bail-out the auto companies need. Without it they will fail miserably and the government participating in any way is guaranteed to make things worse.

Love it, great idea. They rolled in the dough over the past year.
