    “The profits from them stay here.” * If you buy Toyota shares some Toyota profits will go to your pocket, wherever you are. * If Mr. Takamoto (from Nagoya) buys Ford shares, some Ford profits will go to Nagoya.

    I'd like to visit the parallel universe where GM and Chrysler were actually making profits that could "stay here." Last time I checked, the GM and Chrysler that exist in the real world were losing money hand-over-fist.

      Oh, sure. But..."the losses stay here" :-P "here" in this case means "the American taxpayer pocket". Everytime I see a new Sebring/Voyager/Pacifica/Cruze/Whatever in Spain I say to myself: Why the American taxpayer was forced to subsidize this car for this buyer?.

    There is nothing wrong with this at all. I like so many others will continue to support the Chryco and Government Motors bailouts by NOT buying their products. These companies should have been given the same free market treatment as Plymouth and Oldsmobile. Nobody wants your junk, you fail. Buh bye.

      Hey hey - let's not bash on olds . . .I think their problem was that Saturn cannibalized too many sales (reasonably affordable cars with a few options). Fortunately, GMC and Chevy have no overlaps no do Buick and Cadillac. :o History repeats itself . . .again. I just got notice that the local Saturn is now a GMC/Buick dealership . . . (I was praying they were going to pick up an Acura franchise instead - lots of ex-Honda people work in service there)

    Jan. 1979, suburb of St Louis, MO. Pulled off I-70 to grb a mug o' coffee at a stop-n-rob store. Itty bitty kitten slurping some milk outside the front door shivering in the bitter cold. Clerk inside fed the fur face but proclaimed she could not allow the apparently slowly freezing-to-death critter inside due to possible job loss for breaking critter-in-store rule. Sigh. Grabbed the critter and tossed it into the semi's cab where it found a heater duct atop the dash to plant itself. Several deliveries into Kansas, stopping at lumber yards, finally found one willing to adopt fur face. Manhattan, it was. Hope the ratty thing appreciated it and evaded being eaten by a starving college student. Wonder if Dick owned the Ford dealer at that time.
