    With this morning's announcement of 2.7 million more GM cars being recalled, you have to wonder why we bailed out a company (that wasn't even bankrupt in Canada) that made crap...GM cars actually killed the people that bought them. GM has now recalled over 10 million cars in 23 recalls this year alone.

    And now GM is in court to get a ruling that they don't have to pay compensation for deaths and injuries caused by their cars made prior to the American bankruptcy. Only idiots buy GM cars which have now lost a lot of their resale value. And the repair bills for those cars have generated multiple class action lawsuits.

    Even east Germany let the Trebant die...some companies don't deserve taxpayer dollars to survive.

    Ugh....I almost swear, cars from the mid-90s to early 2000s seem to fare better than what's coming off the production line now. How disappointing.
