    I don't know why everyone on OT is laughing about it....GM is a huge American icon, just like anything else like the bald eagle or the american flag.

    Chevrolet, Pontiac etc are all a part of our culture and if they go away then there's no point in being an American.

    Get some pride people, and I'm not even a huge patriot...I just think it's a shitty thing to happen.

    Also...wouldn't a true patriot value the free market principles this country was founded upon, and wish that GM had been sent to bankruptcy long before the govt stepped in?

    People don't find it funny, they find it ridiculous that a company that big could be run that poorly for decades with nothing changing.

    It's mostly frustration and/or relief. Frustration that a company that failed so completely limped this far on govt aid before finally declaring bankruptcy, and relief that they finally did.

    no, I despise the UAW, I don't work in the auto industry, but there was huge base of overpaid auto workers who support a lot of the middle class around here and they will never find jobs that pay that much again.

    it's the American way. You should be proud that this kind of thing can happen in America.

    I'll get american made cars, by going with Honda or Toyota. If I buy GM, that shit will probably be made in mexico or china.

    Me neither, but I'm sure that's mostly due to the fact that I work at a Chevy/Cadillac dealership that could easily be one of those being shutdown.

    I'm going to be pissed if my taxes go to a company whose failure leaves me unemployed.

    Laughing at GM's bankruptcy is Unamerican. loffles.

    Still just the tip of the ice berg though. Your whole nation will fill for bankruptcy protection soon when China/India call in your national debt.

    Not at all...I could care less if they did away with the UAW to keep the brand alive. I would just hate to see the brand go under after all these years. I would also see the government control the brand as well...it's just unfortunate is all :hs:

    tbh, i could care less. I feel bad for all the people who may/will lose a job as a result; but to me, it's just another huge badly ran company that bit the dust. They did it to themselves.
