Revenge of the Electric Car: Why America's Automakers Don't Deserve to be Bailed Out

U.S. automakers had their chance to make a fortune in the auto business by pioneering electric car technology. But instead of jumping on an eco-friendly, transformative technology that could have revolutionized the industry, they stupidly chose to confiscate and destroy all the electric cars in order to keep things happy with Big Oil. Watch "Who Killed the Electric Car?" to see for yourself.

Now the U.S. auto giants are run by retards. Executives have forgotten what innovation even means, and many of the industry workers are so overpaid, they've forgotten what "competitive wages" really are, too. (I know someone making six figures in Detroit who actually manages to sleep several hours on the job...)

The U.S. auto industry is getting exactly what it deserves: Plummeting business due to its arrogant, short-sighted, low-quality entitlement attitude. Toyota puts U.S. automakers to shame, both in terms of efficiency and leadership.

I will personally never buy a U.S. automobile again. I once bought a brand new Ford pickup, and it only took a few minutes to realize the turn signals don't even stay on if you hold the steering wheel at a certain angle. I don't apologize for being blunt here: All the U.S.-made automobiles I've ever driven were engineered by complete idiots. That's why I dread renting a car while traveling: They almost always give you some crappy American-made vehicle to drive!

America needs to stop with the stupid handout mentality and start thinking about how to be competitive by making BETTER products. Instead of begging Washington for billions of dollars to pay the inflated salaries of complacent executives and workers, the big three automakers should be firing all their lazy executives and workers who sleep on the job, and they should have jumped on the electric car opportunity when they had the chance.

The auto industry epitomizes everything that's stupid about American companies: Greed, complacency, laziness, entitlement attitude and the complete abandonment of the very idea of serving the consumer.

Rather than wasting yet more taxpayer money bailing out this stupid, inefficient, bloated industry, Washington should be telling the automakers to go work for Toyota for a while so they can learn about REAL quality, and then maybe they can at least figure out how to copy that.

Funny, isn't it? In 1948, the Japanese were copying U.S. auto makers. In 2008, it's the other way around. It just goes to show you how far the dominance of the American empire has plummeted. We've gone from a nation of leading innovators to a nation of leading whiners and beggars.

From Solargreenenergy.blogspot.com: The Big Three don't deserve a bailout - they've had 30 years of bad management and refused to give the American people what they wanted: Fuel-efficient vehicles. Instead, they seemed to be holding hands with the oil companies and other special interest groups, making big gas guzzlers. Because of this obvious conspiracy, they destroyed every one of those EV1 electric vehicles.... more
