Bail out the auto industry?

Nov 18, 2008 by Jared Smith

Which is worse?
1. Having next year’s NASCAR line-up be Toyota, Hyundai, Volkswagen, and Puegeot, or
2. Putting another $25,000,000,000 tax burden on my children.


The folks from the Big 3 auto makers seem to think that if they don’t immediately get their share of a bailout package that the country will soon resemble a post-apocalyptic wasteland or worse, West Valley City. Apparently Henry Ford himself will rise from the grave and possess the souls of those poor, denigrated Detroit factory workers and lay waste to the land. (After all, whatever would these poor folks do without their unionized job making $70/hour to clean auto factory bathrooms or twist the same bolt all day long?)

Me, I’m pretty well stocked up for a SHTF zombie attack. It’s knowing that my kids are starting out life with a tax debt that will take them most of their lives to pay back that really scares me… that and the thought of a Fiat at Daytona. I say it’s time for a reboot.

Oh, and go Jimmie!
