My comments were meant in a tongue-in-cheek way, as I was describing the '50's and '60's in Communist Russia, which it was reported the the US press about life then. How true it was, I don't know.
And, I'm not saying that is what is going to happen here, but there is talk out there on how GM will be run by the government.
And please, no flames about that statement, I am NOT against the government, but I am being watchful of what may happen to GM and Chrysler. I am not so sure this is the right way to go with them.
Keep it under 90, folks!
