I'm sorry, but this moronic topic doesn't merit anything beyond sniping. Well, maybe chortling.

Since you don't know WHO made the decisions on which dealers to close, any assumptions that the Obama Administration or politics were remotely involved is pure daydreaming and excuse making by some of the dealers [who suck at statistics -a NeoCon hallmark]

One thing not mentioned, statistically more dealers that stayed OPEN were also those who donated to Republican candidates.
Hey McTalking-Points, you forgot to mention the statistic that shows that Doctors are more like to kill people than gun owners.

Spin, spin, spin.

Remember McTalking-Points you are the one who keeps saying it is the little things. The little things like targeting your political adversaries donors.

Closing down dealerships that are profitable? THAT is government economics for you.

You can rest assured there were plenty of back room dealings. Every dealer contacted their political buddies and Mr Mack M has some at the highest level of government.

Transparency demands release of the selection criterion or a statement as to the government's neutrality.








....













Oh never mind, this administration can be completely trusted.

... and this important discussion continues.


Dooloogssst!

See? Context is the core matter at hand.

Looks like you just stumbled into the wrong forum board. If you were looking for the dark side of Hollywood porno/snuff film script writers, where they might have an appreciation for your imagination, I suggest to do a Google search.

Hope you can find your way out of here on your own, and soon.
