Bureaucrats Bounce Businessmen

The lamestream media told you:

Federal lawmakers are proposing a takeover of the Big Three U.S. automakers, and replacing the presidents there with a seven-member federal board that could control every aspect of the operations. It remains unclear if the proposal will be approved, but something has to be done, and the federal government is the only force powerful enough to fix the problems which would otherwise lead to unmitigated disaster, according to federal experts.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

In complete violation of the oath of office, and with utter disregard for the Constitution they are sworn to uphold, the Democrat party is proposing to take over and run an entire industry, because they believe it is being run poorly.

"The government power grab aimed at socializing the American auto industry is a travesty of unheard of proportion," said one expert who refused to be named for fear of reprisals. "The Democrats have no authority to take over an industry -- this places them on an equal footing with Hugo Chavez and Evo Morales -- the leading socialists in South America. The hubris defies description. Why aren't the people up in arms?"

A careful search of the olden Constitution confirms there is no authority even in the cracks or shadows that would allow federal officials to appoint a seven-person board to run the companies and force the presidents, who hold their seats at the pleasure of the shareholders, out of office. News media uniformly failed to mention such points or ask the coup d'etat leaders about their planned takeover.

"The worst part is that virtually no one in Congress, and the vast majority of federal employees, have any experience whatsoever in running even a candy store let alone an industry, with profit and loss factors, supply and demand, design and competition... nothing! How they'll go from tax-funded bureaucracy to minding one of the largest industries on the planet is a disaster of unprecedented size in the making."

Government leaders, who have been planning a seven TRILLION dollar bailout of faulty businesses, using money they don't have and a cooked set of books, couldn't be reached for comment. "Just wait till we're running GM, Ford and Chrysler," one of them was overheard saying. "We're confident we can do this right, or at least better than the auto executives." Government officials' phones were set in a endless voice-mail menu loop, with no contact possible at press time.
