My thoughts on many things including the army, war, politics, the military corrections system, chaos, life, books, movies, and why there is no blue food. Feel free to comment on what I say. Feedback is nice.

Didn't we give all this money to Chrysler and GM because them going bankrupt would devastate the economy. But now Chrysler is going in bankruptcy and restructuring and everyone says it is a good thing.

So why didn't we let them go a few months ago and save ourselves a few BILLION dollars?

I figure the place is likely to go to Hell in a Handbasket while the Robber Barons ( latest iteration ) consolidate their holdings at public expense.
El Salvador isn't in the news much. Shame. I look to it as a precursor for what is coming our way with rocketship velocity.
