    Default Boycott Of GM Called

    We will soon find out just how much influence Rush Limbaugh has. I was reading on yahoo.com that he is calling for a boycott based on principle. That gooberment has no business being in the auto buisness.

    He must have been reading my post here on Potus Place. Will he soon be calling them Gooberment Motors too?

    Real Patriots will be buying Ford!

    I was under the impression that GM's problems are that we are already boycotting it!

    I just bought a new GMC 1500, stepped to the plate, helped our workers, and got a great deal.

    Tsk, tsk Mike....I thought that of all people you would have chosen a product produced under a free enterprise capitalist system and bought a Ford....and you would have gotten a better truck to boot

    Why are all these folks saying they want to help American workers and buy a GM??? Ford is just as, if not MORE American now.

    I've always been a GM guy. I've also owned a couple of Chryslers. I had already made the decision to never buy another GM based on principle. I'm kind of on the fence about Chrylser because they accepted stimulus money. I've never been a Ford guy, per se, but they've earned a ton of points in my book for not accepting any Govt. money. I am slowly accepting that I am joining ranks with the enemy, Ford lovers!

    I have a question an the GM topic. With China buying Hummer does that mean they will be building our Military H-1. I sure hope not. Someone please explain.

    The military Hummer will still be built here by AMG, as it always has. China is buying the civilian version.

    I made the decision a long time ago because my last chevy trucks' engine blew out with only 60,000 miles on it.I'm on my second Ford now.
