      As "Chief CAT HERDER" i really support your efforts and hope I am not pouring gas on the fire. If so, you can delete this post with my support.

      That said...by accepting the Government (political) safety net...GM has linked itself to politics for a long time to come. "NETS" can be a tool for security, rescue, and safety. However, they can equally be a source of entrapment, entanglement, and danger. As time heals all wounds...this association will take a long time to fade...fair or not.

      Good products, effective marketing, with a profitable bottom line, will speed up the healing of a tainted image.

        Very good points, John. I agree.

        Since it is clearly a political topic, why is it allowed on the forum? (to say nothing about posts using terms like "big government lovers")

        I understand we are pretty much a politically conservative group. But we really need to at least look like we have a bigger tent if we want to attract new members.

            I'd suggest it's a car topic. The fact that GM forced a successful dealer to sell out is a car topic, not politics.
            And I agree about your second statement...but you are the one that started the offensive (to me) name calling/labeling.

              There is something "VERY FISHY" about this entire scenario!!!


              And the 40+ Posts here and NOUNIONGENERAL MOTORS mess up this bad without there being some UNION at fault??? Perhaps 'BASS PRO SHOPS' are NON-UNION and the UAW 'forced' GM TOP MANAGEMENT into doing this dastardly deed to poor Mr. Heitz?!?!

                If anyone questions WHY I would never volunteer to be a Forum Administrator, this thread is an excellent example.

                The subject here has always remained 'on topic' with everyone offering a speculation on the events that lead to the termination of what was a top-performing GM franchisee. Naturally, the villain from what we here can see is the huge, multi-national corporate conglomerate which stumbled from its lofty once-untouchable lofty position, and resulted in government intervention to eliminate a potential economic castrpohe. Because of the turn of events that made politics in certain threads such as this is the unavoidable, I would leave this thread untouched if it were up to me.
