Fool's Gold

Any government assistance given to Red Ink Rick and Company can be correlated to giving an alcoholic a bottle of wine. This guy just doesn't get it, or in the alternative, he does, and is purposely driving GM into bankruptcy.

The solution to GM's problems do not lie in further reductions in employment or benefits, selling assets, or garnering dollars from the federal government. Simply enough, if GM would change the marketing of our products, growth, profit, and increased shareholder value would be attainable.

Meanwhile as dealerships close, people lose jobs, and communities suffer, GM continues to display the worst possible presentation of our products and makes the efforts of our best engineers, designers, and production people worthless. It's high time for the losses to stop.
