As a Ford truck guy my whole life this really disappoints me. Ford didn't take the TARP bailouts in 2008. I know they took some govt loans, but as far as I know those were repaid back. GM ended up converting their loans to equity owned by the government.

I'm not happy with Ford right now. I thought they were better than this.
its not their fault anyway, see the tax on corporation and biden is trying to increase taxes on business and corporations. not fair/profitable i guess for business to stay in USA.

From the New York Times
Court Vindicates Black Officer Fired for Stopping Colleague's Chokehold

Read just three sentences:
"What she encountered was a white officer who appeared to be “in a rage” punching a handcuffed Black man in the face repeatedly as other officers stood by.
Horne, who is Black, heard the handcuffed man say he could not breathe and saw the white officer put him in a chokehold. At that point, court documents show, she forcibly removed the white officer and began to trade blows with him."

In 3 sentences, 5 times a persons' color is mentioned. While accusing all whites of being racist, it seems all they are able to focus on is somebody's color. THEY are the ones stirring up race conflict. THEY are the ones bring race into everything they can. Notice also that black is capitalized, white isn't.

This PSA (for lack of a better word) appeared on CBS 4/15 right before an episode of Young Sheldon. It raised some questions in my mind:
  • Have we gotten to the point we have to "make a stand" on behalf of each individual race or nationality whenever one or more is wronged, attacked or murdered?
  • Does this mean that they do NOT "...stand united against racism, hatred, violence and attacks against..." races, ethnic groups or nationalities that are NOT listed?
  • Because of omission does this mean they do NOT hold the same stand for ALL races? How about whites? What about blacks?
  • If that is not the case, then the author needs to go back to basic English and sentence structure and learn how to word a statement.....
  • I wonder also just what the heck constitutes a "community" in the author's mind ?

My first post in this thread and I gotta say the hypocrisy probably makes me more crazy than anything. Imagine what a different country this would be if we just had a fair and balanced media. Ever noticed news articles about politicians in a scandal? If it's a Republican it's in the headline, if it's Democrat you gotta read way down in the article to find out. Hell there've been a few where it never said, I had to do a search to find out they were Democrats.

Am I reading this correctly? It sounds to me like court ordered socialism, state provided housing for anybody that wants it.
