oh no... you're going to get in trouble with jared again!!!
love it love it love it.oh and btw i love your wedding announcement too. i'm sending my rsvp today!
Garth and I were talking about this the other day. I understand the bank bailout, but it's not quite right that the banks get the money they need, pretty much no strings attached. Yet, the auto bailout is full of follow up stuff. But I still don't think the auto bailout has anything to do with the American people as much as it does with the industry and the union junk that goes along with it. I'm with you, not quite right. Things are a mess.
I agree with you Garrett. America was founded on capitalism -- and competition. What happened to competition and the anti-trust laws? Our Government is to suppose to protect us from companies that get too large, not to bail them out. That and give them more of an unfair advantage over small companies! And as an extra kick in the head, our government now wants taxpayers to pay the dang bill to save these monsters!
First, your are not in trouble.Also, I drive a Chrysler and I like it a lot. It gets great gas mileage, has had no mechanical problems (other than those I have inflicted upon it) and I think my next car will by a Chrysler minivan. However, I have no strong opinion on which kind of car is the best except to say that when someone tells me that one kind of car is the best, I usually just walk away from that person and mumble that they are an idiot under my breath. :) Seriously though, if one kind of car was the best for everyone, we'd all be driving that car. And since we don't, my bet is that some people prefer the things that certain cars have to offer.I think the bailout is lame for a couple of reasons, some of which have been mentioned already so I won't repeat them. But I also think it is lame because if Chrysler went under, I think I could get my dream minivan for a steal! :)On the other side, the consequences of not helping out the auto industry could (please notice that I said "could") look a lot like life when my grandpa was growing up and he and his dad left their family and farm to find work in Oregon and lived in the barn and ate nothing but watermelon from that farm because they couldn't afford anything else. What I'm saying is that either way this is bad.My biggest problem with this is that if they are willing to bailout the US automakers, where does it stop? Who else can apply for a bailout? I know I would like to get my hands on one of those applications if they are available.Oh, and also, you are not in trouble. I thought the ad was funny. Except for the part where it said a swear, because I just can't condone that sort of behavior.
thanks for the comments everyone! jared, i didn't think i'd get in trouble... i could take you anyway...I think everyone's got good points.
Couldn't agree more!
