Buy Your People's Car with a Loan from the People's Bank!
When you thought it couldn't any worse, President Teleprompter is going to take over GMAC, thus vertically integrating the manufacture, sale, and financing of cars in the United States. It is hard to believe this is actually happening.
In previous posts, "Killing Chrysler," "The Rule of Law is an Absolute Priority," and "Goodbye GM, Hello People's Car," I wrote about the gross aggregation of financial power by President Teleprompter, and his control over a large portion of the U.S. economy. By the way, nationalizing health care is next (socialized medicine), but I digress. Executives & Professionals: Changing Jobs?
The Wall Street Journal reports in the May 21 edition:
"The Treasury Department is poised to inject more than $7 billion into GMAC LLC, the first installment of a new government aid package that could reach $14 billion,... The GM plan being devised by President Barack Obama's auto task force calls for the government to emerge with a majority stake."
This move vertically integrates the production, marketing, sales, and financing of cars in the United States. This is a frightening thought. The government is using a large portion of industrial productive capacity to promote a political agenda, pay back union backers, and hope to modify consumer behavior.

What makes this behavior worse is:
"Many of the loans to GM and Chrysler are likely to be written off, administration officials say. Other programs, such as the government aid to auto suppliers, are essentially a revolving credit line that is meant to be replenished."
In other words, this becomes a state-run, money-losing, union payback, with little hope of returning to private hands. While this may sound hyperbolic, I can't help but coming to the conclusion, based on the evidence.
