I hear you in terms of tax credits and their support of the bailout for others ... but, that provided for the support of many of their suppliers who are not locked into Ford alone. Although I do not agree with the high degree of Government involvement in many areas of the economy (due to unintended consequences), I cannot blame Ford for doing what was in their best interests. Personally, I do not agree that you should be able to deduct your mortgage interst but, it's the law and the only one hurt when I do not do it is me so, I deduct that interest.
So .. maybe they have a little $$ around to fix my seat issue ... I sure hope so :-)
