130523 JUST DEFIANCE The Future Says Goodbye To Autos Edition

Ford announced it was closing it's Victorian factories - plants - 'tother day, and every anti-ALP federal government slagger was on the waves asap, saying how bad it was for Geeeelong, and Brooooadmeadows, that 1600 jobs were going.
A! Yeah! And, yeah, all the ancillary enterprises wedded to making evermore “planned to be obsolete” in but 5 years maximum motor cars are on the list to shut too.
Maybe if the fucking big auto makers had some integrity to begin with - well...? I used to hold nastys about Ford's founder, the great Henry Ford, but once I learned he did have a very honorable manner about himself, I saw him as a good bloke - since competition turned CRAPitalism into the farce it's made everything - so quality is a taboo - if the auto makers had some integrity, they'd still be making cars that last 50 fucking years!?
With guaranteed after-sales and after market parts supplies!
But OOOoooOOwh! SHIT NO! Whinged the IMF! We have to destroy everything with this cheap shit!
OOOP? 2nd night back on the piss! 4th stubbie down...!
But before I drank so much, I saw this article and it had a comments window, so I tried to fling this'n at it.
But the window was shatterproof, and I wasn't allowed to email the good old right wing Murdoch “workers” rag, the Melbourne Herald Sun.
So here is my thrust on the demise of the Ford and other auto corporations.
[In GREEN for how the oil-addicted idiots of all auto-makers should BE!]
A? This death of Ford in Aus, signs the nation's - and the planet's - need to look with mere statistics and unambiguous environmental science, on what's coming down the pipe in the future.
Cars are kaput!
The sooner we end our dumb-as romance with the 4-wheeled auto, the better.
Ecologically, but mostly, psychologically.
End all subsidies to that death industry, I say.
And, the advertizing smultch!
We'd be better throwing govt funds toward starting our own motorcycle industry.
But the era of "enlightened self-interest" a deadly falsity from it's beginnings in the English 16th/17th century, has got to end.
The motor car is one of the most extravagant failures of that deluded egomania.
I liked Fords. But all things must pass.
And the sooner we get beyond cars, the happier the planet will be.
So, as we near the September 14 federal election, all I can advise is
