Big Three Welfare and How We Can Help

Dear Mr. Harper:
I have been unsuccessful in generating advertising revenue. I do not know whether it is that I have been building unpopular content; or if there is a crisis of those who use advertising revenue to earn income. Regardless, I need the aid of the Federal Government or I will be forced to go out of the blogging business. This will create significant impact to my part of this crucial business sector. There will be no other blog producers present to serve the needs of blog consumers. I require an unknown amount of money-- I will let you know when I have enough. Please do not delay in forwarding all of the funds necessary.
It is ridiculous that because the car makers are failing because of their incompetence that they should be bailed out. It is especially amazing that the right wing party in the country-- that should be the bastion of the free enterprise-- would bail out these car makers just because they hold their workers' futures hostage.
If the Conservatives wanted to help the auto makers and Canadians, they would do this: allow people to claim most of the purchase price of any new Canadian built car with a high minimum mileage. If you spend $40,000 on a car, you would get $30,000 off of your taxes-- the extra would show up as a rebate. This would put new cars on the road to replace old cars; it would jump start that element of the economy; it would benefit the taxpayers. If this stimulated car production and car sales that should solve the auto company woes. If sales won't save them, then a government bailout certainly wouldn't do it.
Really, people are learning to live within their means; if they are using public transit, bicycles and walking; and high gas prices have made people rethink cars. This combination of factors have spelled doom for the car companies-- how could people not have known this was going to be a side effect? If you tell people not to use cars, they won't buy cars. If you punish them with bass-ackwards transportation theories in every community in Canada (eg. traffic crippling aka traffic calming), people will get frustrated out of buying cars. This is like my joke about finding the serum for immortality: what would you do with all of those out-of-work doctors?
