We have had numerous people ask where to get those Ford t-shirts that say "Built Without Your Tax Dollars" and we found someone selling them.


Times have been tough for the automotive industry over the past few years. While some have resorted to taking government bailouts to stay afloat, there has been one company, in particular, that has changed their business strategy and relied on innovation to push ahead. Ford Motor Company did not take any money from the government, and they have profited from this move by placing more of an emphasis on innovation and marketing.

Really?? Ford took $5.9 billion in government loans in 2009 to retool its manufacturing plants and the company lobbied for and benefited from the cash-for-clunkers program.

Ford did not take anything, they owned landrover, Mazda, jaguar, and sold them in 2009 thats why the stayed ahead, cash for clunkers helped every manufacture out there, dont be hating because ford sold more!

There no hate, it's just the way it is. Ford Motor Company took 5.9 billion in government loans. They did not take any TRAP money, but did ask for a 9 billion line of credit.

if you actually read what the money was for, there were NEVER bailed out. the money was to be used for research and development of more efficient cars and prduction line. they never needed money to continue there day to day operations.

Wake up Nathan!! They are PAYING back those loans…GM and Chrysler accepted TARP money thanks to the taxpayer. I'm still waiting for my stock certificate from GM and Chrysler.
