Can't imagine why anyone would invest in GM stock or bonds.

Investors were thrown under the GM bus in the recent bankruptcy proceedings & robbed of all monies invested by the obozo administration.

Based on history I would not purchase a GM product and certainly not invest in a company which is certain to fail with a mismanagement team like the one running the company today.

Former GM mismanagers who guided the company into first failure plus Unions who never have managed anything successfully Plus Government mismanagers?

what does government know about managing anything or building marketing cars?

That team is a prescription , blueprint for failure.

lets put a bankruptcy date pool together?

Send in your best guess or estimate of the date you think GM will be back in bankruptcy court the final time.

Send in your guess along with your name address, e-mail or phone number so we can notify you if your a winner along with $100.00 entrance fee to ME.

I will hold the money and notify the winner or the person who guesses closest to the actual date GM declares bankruptcy and begins court proceedings.

In case of several people get the exact same date guess the big prize will be spilt among the correct guesses.

How fair is that?

lets hear those guesses boys and girls...
