Why did you lump Ford in with that group? Could it be that if they did not beg for help from DC they are not doing things correctly.

Bot was talking about not allowing companies getting so big that tbey could threaten the economy. Ford is such a company.

And I hate to be the bearer of bad new but you might want to check in Fords financial history. I think you might be disappointed.

Lol then i agree he definitely got ripped off, but then again who calls a tree company to cut down a 9 foot tree? They probably charged him that much for wasting their time.

Any threat to the United States should be of concern to the gove. If a company becomes so large or otherwise important that it's loss would threaten then the government should dismantle it. That's why we have monopoly laws.

The most recent time a monopoly was broken up that I remember was ATT. I think a few have been threatened since.

The gov should be using that power against financial institutions. If a bank is so large that failure is a threat, kill the threat.

Just based on the correct spelling and capitalization the perp might not be an Ebonics speaker though.

They did not beg for help because they received a bank guarantee from the federal government. Would they not have received it they would be there with GM and Chrysler holding their hands up, Ford was in a worse shape then GM and Chrysler at the time . They received a 5.9 billion loan for an insane low interest rate. They are only paying of the interest, the billions of dollars are up to us.
