What --- In --- The --- Hell --- Is --- Going --- ON!!
Is this the United States of America, or some Gilbert & Sullivan comic opera?

Hold on, sports fans.... the freakin' President of these here United States actually told the American people - "Let me say this as plainly as I can. If you buy a car from Chrysler or General Motors, you will be able to get your car serviced and repaired just like always," Obama said in a speech. "Your warranty will be safe. In fact, it will be safer than it has ever been. Because starting today, the United States will stand behind your warranty."Then we hear that GM (Government Motors) is planning on selling their cars on ... wait for it... E-Bay. You know, the cyber-garage sale people. Hmmm... I wonder what the postage and handling is on sending me my brand spankin' new 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pick-up truck? Well, stamps just went up a penny or two, so I wonder how many stamps it'll take?

But all seriousness aside -- the government has taken over one of the world's major corporations, and is now selling it's product on an internet site where people go to sell their junk.

How prophetic this 1979 movie was.

What makes you think you're going to be able to buy a Silverado 1500 pick-up truck, when we're all going to be driving around in solar-powered rider mowers?

Are YOU an optimist!

OMG!!! They **tried** to warn us... They even said, "Watch this before you watch it happening in your front yard..."

At the end when John Ritter says, "I'm your president and I love you" and then gives that beaming, charming smile ~ all that I could think was, "OBAMA!!!!"

Jeff Hendrix here. This is why I will stand with Hilaire Belloc, Fr Vincent McNabb, and GKC regarding The Servile State till my dying day.

More prophetic than it even planned on being.

They were only off by about 11 yrs.

Wow! =O Why haven't I heard of this movie before today?

It's too bad the whole thing isn't available on YouTube. Can you imagine what would happen if it went viral?
