“What the hell is going on here??”
Is this really America? You know, the United States of America? The place that champions Free Market and Capitalism? Since when does any CEO of any company have the cojones to publicly call for federal taxes on every American citizen to pay for his company’s loser product? The question is not, “Is Dan Akerson crazy?” The question really is: “How did we come to a place in US history where a nut job like this guy feels no fear or shame to make this kind of request in the first place? THAT, my friends is the real head shaker.
The fault lies with every one of us. Every one of us. Every citizen who continues to want free hand outs from the government. Every citizen too lazy to work for their food. Every American who thinks there is magic money somewhere to pay for their old age. Every American who thinks the color of your skin makes you a good president. Every single stinking citizen who is too lazy to vote. Every citizen who is too greedy or selfish with their busy lives to WAKE UP and pay attention to the news. Every citizen too complacent in the strength of the Constitution that they refuse to believe their rights could ever be jeopardized.
WE the PEOPLE have had the power to make what we want of this country. And we still do. But not for long, people. Wake up! GM is only a symptom, an oozing wart, indicative of a much larger illness. We need to cure that illness. It is called Liberal Ideology or Progressivism.
This guy should be laughed off the stage, not interviewed further. Eggs & rotten vegetables need to be tossed. Get on it!
