Woohoo. Prez Obama said today that he will order the Federal Government to order a fleet of new GM cars.

No longer. With a wave of his hand Obama has done away with trivialities.

Well, there's always unintended consequences to socialism. But, as the great Russian Lenin once said before he rounded up and executed the middle class in Moscow, if you want to make an omelet you gotta break some eggs.
