    As sad as that is, it needs to happen. It's not like there won't be another American auto company or two, someone just needs a few good ideas first.

    Thats a drop in the bucket compared to the 700 billion dumped into the mortgage companies. Obama probably has that in his pocket.

    I'm far more in favor of bailing them out if we tighten emissions standards over Obama's term than I am in favor of bailing out the subprime lenders.

    a loan into companies that are losing billions per quarter. would you invest in them? and if so, would you invest that much in them? sure penny stocks are just that, but c'mon this is insane. they don't make a single thing worthwhile. for example, my friend and his entire family are HUGE ford fanatics as i'm sure a lot of you guys know. ford trucks/cars/etc. well this time around he purchased two toyota's about 3 weeks ago. no joke. wasn't even a comparison to the price/quality/features he said.

    why? so many of their vehicles aren't even built in the u.s. anymore and the american public knows this. hence a large reason to their sales.
