    Why not just put out crap when you know your buddies in Big Government will just bail you out?

    Its Obama’s fault, Romney would have bankrupted GM.

    Don’t forget the Ford Pinto of the 1970’s that tended to explode when hit from the rear. It only had 2 doors and the rear seat passengers were unable to get out before cremation.

    Limited liability only limits your liability when you don’t have enough money for baksheesh. Lots of small businesses are penalised severely for negligence, sometimes with criminal sentences for officers, and almost always with bankruptcy and dissolution of the business.


    Fortunately, that can’t happen for companies that can afford the requisite baksheesh, since most US politicians are squeaky-clean honest, and have the decency to stay bought.

    Isn’t Obama the CEO of GM?
    .
    Humor aside who are you going to criminally charge here? The top management? You have to prove on an individual basis they intentionally did each act. Not going to happen.
    .
    So, you sue the corporation over the loss for monetary damages. But, I’d say the NHTSB is the worst witness you could use. Here you have a marginal and dangerous “safety” product in use that they mandated in vehicles (air bags) being the issue. The fight isn’t going to just be over deaths it will be over whether they could have been prevented too.
    A lot of lawyers will get rich and nobody else will.

    If I remember right the Corvair had a swing rear axle that could tuck itself under the car and roll it over. I had a friend in high school who got a wheel on the shoulder and it did that totaling the car. She was OK but caught hell for it. It wasn’t until years later the defect was publicized.

    I’ve had 2 GM cars the Pontiac Bonneville & Saturn L300. While I have t had any safety issues with them I had to replace the transmission on both cars. I’ll never buy another GM car & plan to soon trade in the Saturn for a Toyota Camry.

    Which is exactly why “corporations are (not) people, my friend.”
    They shouldn’t be granted any rights and privileges as individuals without the responsibility and liability borne by citizens.

    Apply that rule to unions and professional organizations and I’ll agree Nantucket.

    Just wait till our patriotic multinational corporations determine they might lose a dollar or two of profit because of sanctions toward Russia.

    Obama should just start another little war somewhere where those ‘people’ could make a buck.

    Baslim, the first car I RACED in autocross, beating the occasional Porsche, was a ‘61 Corvair. People just didn’t know how to DRIVE. Yes the swing axle was “tricky”, but where are the engines in ALL open wheel, and most closed body RACE CARS today? Yep, in the back. Even dragsters have the engines in the rear, for stability and safety.


    With the modifications in ’65 to the rear suspension, the Corvair became the safest, and best handling car made in America. I raced a ’65 as well, on road racing circuits. When my sister-in-law drove through a red light with the car while I was in ’Nam, and got hit by a gravel truck that had green, she walked away unharmed, though the front of the car was gone.


    The current problem seems more related to people using their keychains as a toy chest, rather than merely a design flaw, though initial reports should have called for change.


    The REAL problem in auto safety remains, the nut behind the wheel.

    Corporate person is to make sure individuals have the same property rights over there stock options as any other property. People responsible can still go to jail and should, are we now going to through every stock holder in jail for GM?
