I didn't know you were an avid reader of the San Diego Gay & Lesbian News, McDuck. But if you don't wanna tell, that's ok. I won't ask.
The point I was making when I posted the October auto sales results is that for the first time in quite a while, auto sales were starting to look up. Now, if we can just continue on that path, perhaps the auto industry can start making a profit again, and pay back the money it borrowed. I tend to think we'll see that pretty soon.
If I had my choice- I'd tax the hell out of imports, to equalize the health care advantage all the foreign car companies have over U.S. automakers. Put a 15% import duty on imported cars, and that would go a long way to equalize things.
