    What about all those bailout bucks we gave them to "save millions of jobs"?

    I’ve offered to help them with a new advertisement:

    “GM: Closing plants and dealerships near you. Get'em while they last!
    In the interest of disclosure: please be advised that we will not honor Pontiac warranties because we got away with not honoring Oldsmobile warranties, besides, complaints would be bad for your investment. Thank you for your patronage!”

    I don't buy this BS, GM makes cars American wanted and still want, it is just that foreign car makers have none of the employee responsibility GM does. Our GM cars are all excellent and fit our needs. But another aspect is the cheap aspect, Walmart isn't popular because they are a good citizen and treat their employees well, they are popular because they are cheap, and cheap sells whether it makes sense or not to the country.
