There's nothing sillier than watching those stretched out, false and half-truth advertisements of those bankrupted domestics trying to sell their cars...

and giving fake numbers in sales that are as misleading as the whole campaign to gain market in this country alone...

because only the members of that communist outfit uaw will ever buy them for as long as they can stay on taxpayer bailouts that is...

and all the while the assemblers are walking around on crutches like they don't know what's going on.

Smile ... the Democrats love ya.

Oh Gee Whiz, is the UAW going to start properly representing its captive constituents?
