(EDITOR'S NOTE: You gotta love it when a limousine liberal like Michael Moore prescribes less driving for you, while using a car service in Manhattan. Hypocrisy is thy name, Michael Moore. Or is that Al Gore? I get them all confused. Moore loves preaching at you: "To help pay for this, impose a two-dollar tax on every gallon of gasoline. This will get people to switch to more energy saving cars or to use the new rail lines and rail cars the former autoworkers have built for them.")
(June 1, 2009) I write this on the morning of the end of the once-mighty General Motors. By high noon, the President of the United States will have made it official: General Motors, as we know it, has been totaled.
As I sit here in GM's birthplace, Flint, Michigan, I am surrounded by friends and family who are filled with anxiety about what will happen to them and to the town. Forty percent of the homes and businesses in the city have been abandoned. Imagine what it would be like if you lived in a city where almost every other house is empty.
