If the Big-3 automakers drew up car plans like the "top Democrats" who drew up a billion dollar financial request for them, no wonder they are in trouble. Put the crayons back in the box and let's get serious! The reception of the draft was less than enthusiastic especially since it didn't reward thriving companies with longer-term federal assistance. According to Dana Perino, White House press secretary, "We'll continue to work with members on both sides of the aisle to achieve legislation that protects the good faith investment by taxpayers." Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, ever the optimist (for the bailout) resounded with, "While we take no satisfaction in loaning taxpayer money to these companies, we know it must be done." No, Harry, that isn't exactly right. Haven't you been listening to the majority of Americans who are telling their Congressmen just the opposite? Remember the bankruptcy restructuring "thing" that has been floating over your head like a rain cloud? Now, while you are trying to recall what I'm talking about, Senator Reid, let's talk about the "Car Czar". Haven't we learned anything about a chosen one (or two) and money allocations? That's right, the 700 billion! CHECKS AND BALANCES is a wonderful thing to have in place when that kind of money is being distributed. The "system" is not just for Legislative, Judicial, and Executive Branches anymore. Americans have yet to see the receipts for the bailout. I don't care what party, what creed, or what need exists...nobody acting alone is immune from corruption. Senator George Voinovich (Republican) even has "concerns" about the CZAR. I'm wondering...is anyone that smart (or wise) all of the time? After all, even King Solomon had some off days.

May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
