    I was all about loaning them money before, but listening to them now, fuck em. They have contracts with the UAW to pay their workers 95% when their factories are idle....WTF?!? The Senator from Tennessee got the bitches pretty good.

    The chairman Senator said it's called taking care of their employees and he likes that...WTF?!?!

    If my company didn't have shit for me to do, they'd kick my ass out...what makes the fuckers turning screws any different??????? I wish someone would bring that back up...hopefully.

    I think it's illegal for any company employing over 10000 people to go bankrupt in america anymore.

    Well, one point against that was that people will not buy cars from a manufacturer that's going to go bankrupt.

    I would only put one condition on giving money to these guys. Lower the pay of all the executives by 50 to 75 percent.

    They asked about that. "Would you be willing to work for $1/year?".

    GM and Chrysler said, "Sure, to be symbolic, sure...". Ford danced around it.

    Nardelli is the ONLY one who agreed to it. Wagoner and Mulally both danced around it.

    Wagoner eventually said "Sure, to be symbolic" after doing a dance.
