Government Motors

I have got to tell you, when the government takes over a business its never a good thing. But what makes this more alarming is the direction the government is taking on what products GM will deliver. For example, GM’s most profitable division is their truck division. That’s the division the government wants shut down and wants GM to make smaller more fuel efficient vehicles. Fine. But when you run a business because of political vision/ideology and not solid business principals, its a recipe for disaster. Perhaps GM will become the American version of Yugo or Volga. Look at how well those vehicles did. To bad this experiment will come at the expense of the American worker and a great car company. What a mess. What do you think?
