FURHER INSPECTION BEARS OUT THIS ANGLE:
Doug Ross noticed that quite a few of the expropriated Chrysler dealers were GOP contributors.
Punditarian wasn't sure how significant that was; he expected most if not all car dealers to go GOP.
Today, the WSJ published a full page ad from the National Dealer Council -- 17 dealers elected by the dealer organization ro represent all dealers' interests.
Punditarian went to open secrets dot org, and checked a few of the more unusual names.
Some were not listed as contributors.
Some mainly contributed to the National Auto Dealers Association.
ALL OF THE OTHERS HE FOUND CONTRIBUTED MAINLY TO DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES.
Here are SOME of the names:
- Arrigo 3300 to Dem (FL)
- Foulke 6900 to Dem (NJ)
- Palmen $750 to Feingold (WI)
- Eddy $1000 to dem candidates, $9,000 to auto dealers association (OH)
- McSkimming $750 to national auto dealers association (IL)
- Schenden $900 to dem candidate, $12,500 to auto dealers association (CO)
THEN THERE'S THIS:
Chrysler executives this week defended their decision to cut a quarter of its dealers and the process they used to determine which dealers should be eliminated. They said stores were evaluated on a number of factors, including sales, customer satisfaction, location and condition of the dealership.Steven J Landry
... If Chrysler does not streamline its operations and complete the proposed sale of its good assets to the Italian automaker Fiat, “the stark reality is all 3,181 dealers will face elimination,” Steven J. Landry, the company’s vice president of North American sales and marketing, said in a statement.
“It was not an easy decision to ask the court to reject a portion of our dealer contracts, but the reality is Chrysler’s viability depends on a vibrant, profitable dealer network,” Mr. Landry said. “As presently configured, Chrysler’s dealer network does not meet that test.”
Mr. Landry also argued that the company was “treating the rejected dealers fairly by assisting in the redistribution of remaining vehicle and parts inventory, paying incentive and warranty payments due.” But many dealers disagree.
Chrysler is not buying back any inventory, including the vehicles and parts that dealers say they never wanted and bought only under pressure. And the entire process, which gives them only until June 9 to liquidate everything, is far from fair, they contend.

It seems the USA is now a fascist economy, where allegiance to the Party in power means everything.
