And the truth is that these bail out schemes are crazy and do not get to the cause of the problems. As to the auto bailout, lay the blame where it belongs, at the feet of the UAW. The chickens are now coming home to roost and it's taxpayers to the rescue.

This is great. If Harry Truman was alive today he would be a Republican

Most people tell as much truth as will advance their own subjective cause, wealth, fame etc. Truman was a man of the people, a common man with a common touch. I don't think he would ever be a Republican and I think Lincoln would denounce the current party and the party for the last 50 years. As far as Detroit goes it is being put out of business by the Koreans and their cohorts the Alabamians and Georgians with their subsidized factories in Montgomery, Al and Columbus, Ga. The Gov of Ga. braggs about driving a Kia. Oh yeah! the South will rise again even if they have to be traitors to the nation to do it!

I agree with Waffler.

I just read on MSN Money Blog that UAW workers get $55 dollars an hour. Their basic take home is $40 bucks. The rest is benefits. The blog says that UAW gets $10 more an hour than Honda and Toyota. So there is the truth, do you think it is hell or not?

Few of us want truth because it is hell, at least the results of lies and deceptions. Most Americans "can't handle the truth" so we take the highway to hell instead (more lanes, less tolls).

90% of which never hits the tube - if only the people knew half of it!

In my ignorance I always thought that Truman was one of the "good" Dems. I visited his library and museum and read his speeches and other statements. He was no different that LBJ, Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, or any other of them. I lost all respect for him. He was apparently as much of a demagogue and propagandist as any current Dem. He was able to turn a Republican controlled congress over to the Dems crying about them not putting his spending bills through, calling them a 'do nothing congress", while at the same time taking credit for the government running a surplus. Obviously if the congress did as he demanded the surplus would not have been there. He was just another worthless leftist politician. Truth was to him what ever he decided he wanted it to be.
