I like cars. Sure, I really am an environmentalist with a soft spot for a hotrod. I have owned a number of Chrysler products over the years, and the truth is, you couldn't pay me to own one. That said, if you are interested in why Chrysler went tits up, I recommend this article.
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
