    You blame this on CAFE Standards??

    Give me a break....

    There are lots of things wrong with the American auto industry... but mileage of cars is not the major factor... hell, the US is LEADING The way in terms of mileage averages for larger vehicles that Honda or Toyota WON'T produce yet are still wanted and even NEEDED by many American consumers

    The other funny thing... I did not know socialism was based on loans... if you would have complained about handouts to the industry, like we have handouts to the do-nothing lazy folks thanks to people like you who believe in socialism, you would have actually had a point....

    but like always, you indeed have no point....

    certainly not for a corporation....a business that has made profits off of us over the years, and now when not making a profit we have to pay them again...

    i for one, am sick of it....

    5 trillion in debt are these two banks.....jesus mary and joseph!!!!! sigh :(

    save freddie mac or save social security?
    save fannie mae or save medicare?
    save freddie mac or give us affordable health care?
    save fannie mae or save our infrastructure?

    i dunno about you, but i pick the LATTER on all of the above, IF OUR tax dollars are going to be spent....

    care

    This is a handout. Way can't they borrow the money from banks? Oh that's right, they would have to pay it back at a high interest rate like everyone else. Wouldn't you like a nice very low interest rate to buy a house?

    Are you still so blinded by your partian myopia that you honestly think that on issues invovling high finance there is a significant difference between the parties?
