Notice I didn't use the word bail!

I saw a pole on a Canadian web site that showed 84% of Canadian's were againts it.

Maybe help with a slow death. Auto companies have come and gone in the past.

Also...maybe debtor's courts are the best place to settle the mortgage problem.

I hate to say this, as I personally don't have a problem with the post, but I can see this heading down a politics / religion / interconnects path if not careful...

As long as we don't end up at the 'speaker wire' or 'all amps sound the same path' we should be OK ;\)

I agree that this could turn ugly quickly.

With that said, does it really matter who they "help out"? Either way it is the tax payers footing the bill. I just think that if any government is going to hand out "our" money, that there need to be stipulations as well as checks & balances put in place. Make them actually DO something good with the money that we've given them, not just pad the exec's pensions and bonuses. Much like the lenders bailout without ANY stipulations, just a "Here ya go! Enjoy!" handout is wrong in my book.

So should the government "help out" the auto industry? My quick answer is "no". The government is here to help/protect/serve the citizens, not the companies run (mismanaged) by those citizens.

It isn't as clear cut as that, but without diving into every angle and aspect, that it what my opinion is. Others will argue that the "helping out" of the auto industry will in turn help serve the citizens of this country with jobs, etc, but I am not a person that thinks that we should just hand out billions of dollars lightly.

Oh I remember that one. That one got a bit heated at times.

That's it for me on this thread.

I seem to have touched a nerve. Sorry about that.

Maybe we should let this thread RIP.

Ah yes, I remember that one; probably I still lurk this forum just because of that thread . Too bad it got out-of-hand with personal attacks and we lost a few good forum members in the process.
