"The federal government needs to rethink its priorities. Let's spend our money wisely and invest in 'America' first."
Dr. Arnold Wolf, Sterling Heights, Mich.

IF General MotorsFord and Chryslerget the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.

Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

More vs Better Government

One thing is clear from this fall's financial debacle; our governments utter inability to hold anyone responsible for being asleep at the switch or in making the wrong decision. How is it possible that the likes of Paulson, Dodd, Frank and Cox and even President Bush himself (key public figures in a position of authority and responsibility when it comes to our nations treasury) are not being investigated by prosecutors on charges that the military used to be classify as "dereliction of duty". I fear that the $700,000,000,000 in funding provided for under the legislation that has recently be passed will go down as the greatest heist in the history of man kind. Greed knows no bounds and now where is greed more grievous than in Washington DC and Wall Street.

Franklin often inferred that even at the founding America's decline and ultimate demise will come from within via the corruption and incompetence that is bred by our current political system.
