Welcome to anarchy. The Supreme Court decision to let Obama's theft of Chrysler bondholder's rights, go forward. When no branch of our Government will fulfill its Constitutional responsibility to kept in check other branches, there are no laws, there is no order, there is only chaos! State militias get your guns, it is survival of the most prepared states from a well funded rogue enemy in Washington, from this point forward.

One more blow to the private sector. What has become of the three parts of government: legislature, executive, and judicial? Administration said go ahead, sell, screw various parties out of their proportional share of the sale price--no problem. Results is best for the U.S. S.C. had the opportunity to slow down the passage to social government and now that opportunity is lost. Hang on to your "wallets".

Great news for the Obama. He's giving Chavez a run for third most powerful dictator in the hemisphere.

The SC has more important things to do. Like install ash trays around Sotomayers place on the bench.

I guess bankruptcy laws don't apply if Obama says they don't. This should be a wake up call to everyone who holds bonds for a private company. The law will not matter if Obama steps in.

The rule of law and of justice is rapidly coming to an end in these United States--the Obama's Chrysler scam is yet one more example of how his regime and the previous one have worked to undermine the basis of our society.

We must all be prepared for dismal, agonizing times ahead before we can begin to regain the America we have lost.

Wow. I guess bankruptcy law only applies when convenient. Good to know.

Right or wrong, if the government had not intervened, Chrysler employees, retirees, bondholders, etc would all have gotten absolutely nothing when Chrysler filed Chapter 13 and was liquidated for the sole benefit of secured creditors.

Wow, Chrysler, the maker of cars apparently nobody wanted, is suddenly the symbol of our republic.

Maybe it really is dead, in that case.

To make matters worse, it will be bought by a company from socialist, evil Europe, as will Opel.

Funny how those lazy socialist Europeans and communist Chinese good-for-nothings are buying up our industry.

Well, there are no strong labor unions in Europe so they have the advantage. They also work much longer hours, weeks, and have far fewer paid days off.

(for those of you who don't understand what facetious means, please look it up before you respond)

Yeah, we had China right where we wanted him until this new president took office.

Anyone who thinks the new, Fiat-controlled Chrysler is going to reverse the zombie automaker’s rep for producing utter crapmobiles should cop a boo at the latest J.D Power report. The 2009 UK Vehicle Owners Satisfaction Study rates Fiat dead last, behind even Chrysler. Welcome to the junk yard!

All you punks need to stop whinning. Chrysler has always manufactured junk. It was only a matter of time before they dissolved. GM is next and Ford may not be far behind. All the bond holders and others will get screwed. So what, life isn't fair. All intelligent people must know, the law does not apply to the president of the united states. Just ask Bush and buba.

There is nothing wrong about what the O'bamas are doing controlling the car business. Just think, on the weekends you will have Joe Biden selling cars. I can here his 1st customer now. " But sir, I told you I would take it over 30 minutes ago". For the extended warranty, you get to go to Barney Franks office if you are gay, Chris Dodd if you have been in jail within the last 5 yrs. If you don't want to pay the taxes, go see Timmy Gietner. Just think, you will have Obamas picture on your side mirror, and all the lyrics for the songs playing on the radio will display on your windshield telepromter.

Obama lied to us. He went on a spending spree and told us that it was to stop the recession. Unreal.

Here's the forecast:
1) Obama gives S. Marchionne the control of Frysler for blue prints of pint size cars that work well in Torino but no where else in the world.
2) Marchionne, pillages the cash given to Frysler by US Citizens to modernize Fiat factories and pay-off Union "considerations and obligations".
3) Frysler Fiats only sell well in US towns with narrow, cobble stone streets and Mediterranean climate.
4) With the surviving, unprofitable Frysler dealerships starving for sales, Marchionne imports Alfa's to the US "to save dealers". BHO funds the move.
5) Alfa's experience double digit growth while Fryslers collapse.

Result: US Taxpayer funded growth of Fiat and Frysler market share shrinks to single digits.
