SOL VIEW: THE AUTO BAILOUT

SO THE STORY THAT HAS ME REALING WRITE NOW ON CAPITOL HILL IS THIS WHOLE AUTO BAILOUT SITUATION....

THE PAST FEW DAYS THE BIG THREE CEO'S HAVE BEEN ON CAPITIOL HILL BEGGING FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD FOR GOVERNMENT AID IN LIGHT OF HOW CRAP THE ECONOMY IS.

IRONICALLY ENOUGH WHEN THEY ARRIVED IN TO DC FOR THESE HEARINGS TO TESTIFY IT WAS ON THEIR PRIVATE JETS... TRIPS THAT COST $20,000 OF COMPANY FUNDS TO MAKE. WHEN ASKED IF THEY WOULD BE WILLING TO SELL THERE PRIVATE JETS FOR THE GOOD AND BETTERMENT OF THE COMPANY ALL THREE ANSWERED NO....

THIS MIND YOU WASN'T THE MOST DISTURBING OF THE EVENTS THAT CAME UP... WHEN ASKED ABOUT MAKING MORE ENERGY EFFECIENT AND "GREEN" CARS THE CEO'S WERE BEWILDERED. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE IDEAL AMERICAN AUTO WAY IS A HUGE GAS GUZZLER WITH RIMS AND A COWBOY HAT BUT COME ON. THE AVERAGE AMERICAN FAMILY IS STRUGGLING TO STAY EMPLOYED AND KEEP FOOD ON THE TABLE... HOW BUISNESS SMART IS IT FOR THESE COMPANIES TO CONTINUE MANUFACTURING CARS THAT R IMPRACTICAL FOR THE TIME PERIOD??? THATS LIKE TRYING TO SELL ME FRED FLINSTONE'S CAR, ITS LUDICRIS AND IMPRACTICAL.

SO MY QUESTION IS THIS.... IF THE BIG THREE AREN'T GOING TO CHANGE THEIR SPENDING HABBITS OR THERE PRODUCT.... Y SHOULD MY TAX DOLLARS SAVE THEM???
