Bailing Out The Auto Industry

Blogroll Me!
Before we bail out the Auto Industry we need to consider letting them reduce in size, and putting people to work repairing and expanding our passenger rail system.

With gas being dirt cheap right now it would be easy to begin to believe that the price of Oil won't go back up to $150 a barrel.

It would be difficult to rebuild our railroads if gas were to go back up to $4 a gallon.

Perhaps the economy of growth is just destruction and neglect. These pictures of the once thriving neighborhoods of "The Auto Industry" are now slums. How could this be?

When you see this, you have to ask yourself; if an industry that cares not for its historical imprint leaves this sort of debree behind, do they deserve a bailout?

Those images tell a story of decay don't they. No i do not believe the culture of decadence should be encouraged...the money would be far better spent on mass transportation infrastructure most definitely.
