General Motors files for bankruptcy
I simply cannot wrap my head around this. My grandparents on my dad's side both worked there during WWII. My grandma is still on a GM pension. My hometown at one time had over 30,000 GM employees living there. The economy of the whole town was dependent on GM. Thanks to poor quality control, Japanese competition, the ever increasing demands of the unions, NAFTA, the WTO, CAFE standards, Bill Clinton, George Bush and most of all, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, an entire way of life is now coming to a shuddering halt.
I drive Ford for a reason. But this will have a negative effect on my family, my family's business, my gray haired grandmother and my long suffering hometown.
What a fucking mess.
