Think of all the other writers out there in the world, taking the same detour from word processor to coffeepot, thesaurus in hand, hopes in tow. We're all in it together, crossing over and over the elusive bridge between words and literature.

Vicious

 

At first when I read this, I was skeptical. Now? Not so much... check it out:

A tipster alerted me to an interesting assertion. A cursory review by that person showed that many of the Chrysler dealers on the closing list were heavy Republican donors.

To quickly review the situation, I took all dealer owners whose names appeared more than once in the list. And, of those who contributed to political campaigns, every single one had donated almost exclusively to GOP candidates. While this isn't an exhaustive review, it does have some ominous implications if it can be verified.

And it turns out that Chrysler didn't want to close the dealerships - the President's Automotive Task Force pressured the decision.

Obama gave billions of taxpayer money to the car company (and for nothing, apparently, as bankruptcy is certain), interfered with Chrysler's business decisions, threatened to remove its CEO (and will, after the bankruptcy), awarded stock just by speaking it into being while trying to give current bondholders pennies on the dollar, decided that Chrysler needed to drastically cut its advertising budget, and then chose to close dealerships whose owners contributed to Obama's political rivals.

At this point, can anybody craft any argument that suggests that Obama supports business in this country?

Can anyone craft an argument that he isn't a dictator?

Obama is immoral. It's as simple as that. And his supporters are either really ignorant or just as immoral if they're not speaking out against his actions.

Did anyone think to check the still-open dealerships against Dem donors? That's likely be a short list; auto dealers in general lean Republican so it's no surprise that "of those who contributed to political campaigns, every single one had donated almost exclusively to GOP candidates." Correlation is not quid pro quo.

Follow the link Brett posted and you will see they are collecting more information. There are some compelling examples of Dem donors not being touched that will catch anyone who isn't biased's attention (look at the statistics run on the probability of being closed). This should be looked at thoroughly and if true, heads need to roll.

There is no need to force any dealer to close. They aren't subsidized by the auto manufacturers, they have to stay afloat on their own. Closing them has just opened the door for more foreign auto manufacturers, which in our area we are already seeing. The local Jeep/Chrysler dealership (Matthews) has already announced they are staying open and will be selling cars from India made by Mahindra. Interesting in that they are similar looking to the Jeep line.

Genius Barry, pure genius.
