    Maybe they can give the top job at Chrysler to Barney Frank and GM to Tim Geithner, and get them out of government.

    That way they can only destroy one segment, instead of the entire US economy. :rolleyes:

    Fascism is here, are there any Statesmen left in this country to support LIBERTY. Zero and his group of fascist/socialist/communist must be stopped.

    What right does a president have to tell a CEO to resign? Where does our constitution give anyone that right?

    Is this what you thought was gonna happen with Zero? I pray that it is God's will that someone stand up to this totalitarian. Liberty and freedom is what this country is about. One it's gone we are finished.

    Like most Obama haters, you miss the point. If GM had taken care of business, they would not be begging for taxpayer funds. If we the people bail 'em out via our government, then the government can tell them how to restructure. If they didn't want that, they didn't have to take the money.

    So when you borrow money from the bank for a mortgage or an auto, the bank gets to control your life, dont think so.

    Also, the money given were loans, supposedly.

    If people want fascism or socialism, move to Europe. You'll love their healthcare.

    Also, I do not miss the point. Obama hates this country and our constitution.
    Many people recognized this long ago. Just had to look at the relationships he had. We were and are right about Zero.

    He will do whatever it takes to destroy us.

    If I take money from a bank, I have to agree to their terms. You betcha!

    Facism is to healthcare as wings are to monkeys.

    I get out plenty. People are getting angry. We can know longer sit by and watch our country be destroyed. The resentment is growing. The Democrat party may think they are winning and will destroy capitalism, but the will be proven wrong.

    All the bank cares about is, can you repay the money. They do not seek to control you. Not sure where you bank, but my credit union puts no conditions on my loan. If I do not pay they will repossess.

    No condition? Wow! Maybe you bank at Chase or BOA! Or maybe you had better reread the fine print. It is not carte blanche, but every loan has conditions, including taxpayer loans to failed companies.

    BTW, Palladin...I bet if you get a car loan, the bank can compel you to carry insurance.

    Evidently you think this is just a game. Freedom and liberty are no be deal. As long as we have some security we will be fine. These officials have only our interest at heart.

    Let the smartest and brightest govern and we will enjoy the meager existence they allow us.

    After we lose economic liberty, how far behind will religious liberty be? And once lost how is it taken back.

    You obviously have never read many of my postings. I highly criticized the Bush administration, and Congress, for the Patriot Act for just these reasons.

    Now rather than oddball assertions, can you support that I think it's a game? Can you support your assertion of loans that carry no conditions? Nope? Didn't think so.

    GM CEO resigns at Obama's behest

    The Obama administration asked Rick Wagoner, the chairman and CEO of General Motors, to step down and he agreed, a White House official said.

    On Monday, President Barack Obama is to unveil his plans for the auto industry, including a response to a request for additional funds by GM and Chrysler. The plan is based on recommendations from the Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry, headed by the Treasury Department.

    Kind of bad form to have two running threads on the same subject.
