The Gays Are Killing Ford!

According to the wingnuts, The Gays are responsible for current woes of Ford Motor Company.
Maybe Ford Motor Company management can be forgiven for not taking seriously the American Family Association (AFA’s) call for its members to boycott the automaker in May 2005. The conservative Christian group launched the crusade against the second-largest U.S. automaker for giving money to gay rights groups, offering benefits to same-sex couples and actively recruiting gay employees.

Several Ford dealers, recognizing the threat, convinced the AFA to suspend its boycott while they tried to convince the company to be less aggressive in promoting gay-agenda causes. Ultimately, the dealers failed to change minds at the company’s Dearborn, Michigan headquarters.

AFA put the boycott back on in March 2006. AFA’s position, stated at its site, is that “Ford could have easily avoided this boycott had they desired to do so by simply remaining neutral in the cultural battles.


Now consider this: Last September, Ford had $27.4 billion in cash. The Truth About Cars blog, bringing back a nearly forgotten term from the late-1990s bubble, estimates that the company’s cash “burn rate” is $12-$14 billion per year. At that rate (excluding possible sales of assets, etc.), the company, which has already utterly mortgaged itself, could run out of money by the end of 2009.

That’s an awfully high price to pay for political correctness.
Of course, none of this has anything to do with the "recesssion", the price of oil, Ford's poor customer service record, uninspired vehicle design, foreign competition, or crappy fuel efficiency.

Remember boys, every time you suck a cock, Ford loses a sale. Why do you hate America?
