then gm paid off it's debt with money it borrowed from the fed!
audit the fed! Paul was right - audit the fed and you'll find all kinds of crap from both the dems and GOP!
They pretty much had all their debt forgiven. They dumped 4 of their worst performing brands (good luck trying sell your car if you have one of those brands). They were excused from having to clean up their environmental issues (see NUMMI). They were given $50 billion by us taxpayers.

So the real question becomes...How could they NOT post a quarterly profit??

Shoot. If I had all my debts forgiven, was told to not worry about the trash I left behind and then given money, I too could "live high off the hog".

The fact remains is that this is the only the 3rd time in 24 quarters that GM has made a profit. Yet you have GM toadies on here ready to throw GM a parade. Pretty sad if you ask me. Pretty sad.

THREE OUT OF 24 QUARTERS?

SOUNDS LIKE THE MINORITY NEWS REPORTS ARE CORRECT ABOUT GM; CORPORATE RAIDERS WITH GOVERNMENT CONNECTIONS GOT INTO THE COMPANY AND DID AN ENRON ON IT.

WHY WOULD THE STOCKHOLDERS NOT REPLACE THE BOARD IN 2004 WHEN GM LOST 50 PERCENT OF ITS STOCK VALUE IN ONE YEAR? BECAUSE THE BOARD WERE THE CORPORATE RAIDERS AND WERE ABLE TO REPEL ANY STOCKHOLDER ACTION BY VARIOUS MEANS.

The truth hurts doesn't JJ? Let me buy you a pencil and some paper and you can take some notes to help you remember the difference between reality (what I say) and the Land of Oz (where you currently reside).

I think the hate American club is alive and well. One from Il. and one from Fl. and both are evidently real works. I fear for this country if this is what the youth has come to, such hate woven in their very being.
