Own Volvo.

Ford paid $6.4 Billion in 1999. Estimated fire-sale price to China is around $2 Billion.

Wow. You know, a billion here, a billion there - pretty soon you're talking about some serious money.

I HATE when that happens.

Wonder what he'd think of this?

Arizona borrowed $700 million in December “and spent it in 10 days.”

The Republican tactic of overspending to break government is alive and well here. Note that we just keep cutting taxes, or refusing to raise them while we suffer a heat death. Our schools are 49th in the nation FFS.

When oh when will people realize that all the nice things they want (roads, police, schools, fire-folk etc etc) need to be paid, just like their bags of Cheetos and subscriptions to internet porn. Of course, roads, schools, police etc don't quite provide the immediate gratification of porn and Cheetos, but hey - sometimes you need a little more patience to see these things through.

The Reagan movement has succeeded in destroying much of our country and stupidifying our people. I don't know if it's recoverable.
