Whew, am I thrilled to pay taxes in a country which won’t be “BAILING OUT” a car-manufacturer
– because Switzerland has no car-manufacturers of its own.
I feel downright betrayed when I hear that the U.S. government will not permit any of the major three car-manufacturers to go into bankruptcy. These enterprises should die a good old classic Darwinistic Death, survival of the fittest, cannibalisation of the weakest. Why should a government already starved for funds pay to keep the car-manufacturers alive?
How about coughing up the money the car-makers are requesting “in order to stay alive till the end of the year” for public transportation instead?
If I paid U.S. taxes I’d ask: “Why should my taxdollars pay for companies whose boards of directors aren’t democratically elected?”
Please, dear U.S. congress, write down the amounts the big Detroit three are requesting. Then, invest that money into Amtrak, informing Amtrak to hire all of the employees being fired “for economic reasons” by the Big three.
It’s just like mama said, “There is no justice in life.”. Which translates to, “Democracy is a myth.”
