    Better yet, why doesn't the government just buy everyone a new car? C'mon Obama, help Wilbur.

    Yeah, because the FIRST cash for clunkers program was such a HUGE job creator. A second time would add just as many jobs, right? Two times zero still equals zero.

    We should really just cut to the chase and have China start cutting each and every american and business big checks so that we can cut out the middle man and get this debt based society rocking.

    Come on Nightfly, you're not smart enough to be counted on to spend in properly. Let your betters in government figure that out for you. Now go back to watching TV. I hear American Idol just started a new season...

    The integrity of work and the dollar has been 100% completely thrown out the window.


    Money for nothing and Chicks for free..


    There has got to be an effort to destroy America with this kind of thinking.

    Like someone once said: "If God doens't destroy America, He owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology."

    Just a reminder to all on this thread. IAC is basically the byproduct of the acquisition of the bankrupt Lear Corp. That deal saved 26 manufacturing plants in North America alone. All those on this thread can extrapolate the jobs saved with this acquisition, but I think it is safe to say that nobody on this thread will ever have as positive impact on our economy or society as when Ross bought Lear and saved those jobs. "Money for nothing and Chicks for free?"...far from it. To be fair, I am not a fan of Ross's W.V. mine acquistions, but prospective is warranted.
