In this response to Troy Clarke, President GM, Greg Knox of Knox Machinery, Inc. hits the nail on the head.
His response echoes my letters to my Senators and Congressman. We must get out of this immediate self-gratification mindset. We are no longer a capitalistic country and have begun the nationalism of our country. We must stop this “Nanny State” the government is not our “Sugar Daddy.”
"But for some reason we are now deciding that the rest of the world is right and that capitalism doesn't work - that we need the government to step in and "save us"...save us, hell - we're nationalizing...and unfortunately too many of this once fine nations citizens don't even have a clue that this is what's really happening...but they sure can tell you the stats on their favorite sports teams...yeah - THAT'S important..."
"Detroit and the United States need to pay for their sins. Bad news people - it's coming whether we like it or not"
