Save Detroit? I think I need help!
Somebody call my shrink. I need help.
The US auto industry angers me to no ends. Of course, everyone angers me to no end lately, and all this Obama hope is the root of it. Talk about transference.
It's not that I don't have hope. It's that I don't believe one person is enough. Obama can't save us from ourselves. We're the ones - ALL OF US - that need to change. Yes, some more than others, but all of us.
Instead, however, we just want Obama to fix the world, to make everything alright as we pick up another sack of Big Mac's in our gas guzzler and plant ourselves on the couch every day after work.
That's not democracy. This isn't just about Obama, or Democrats, or what ever label you most love using. This is about all of us. It's about the World.
Therefore, I think Obama and Democrats need to stick the stimulus package up their collective asses.
Because it isn't nearly enough. This isn't any damned moonshot. What is our goal as a Nation?
End foreign oil dependency by 2020.
Give us a moonshot!
Since we're going to bail out the Big 3 one way or another, why not use Detroit to make it happen? Put forth a plan that ends foreign oil dependency by 2020. Period. Put up a trillion dollars and make it happen. The return on investment will easily cover the costs of implementation faster than solar power ever will.
Besides, what does America stand for anymore?
Let's end foreign oil dependency NOW, and lets use the automaker bailout as the impetus.
Have I completely lost it?
