GM is immortal as a company. If they start to fail, we will be forced to bail em out. They should have just let them die, or get bought out by someone else. The lessons learned by that kind of thing insures better, cheaper, more efficient and streamlined companies. Bailing them out is like catching a robber and telling him not to do it again, letting him go, and giving him a little money and some literature to read. He's not going to learn anything from that, and it's certainly not what he deserves.
