Ford Motor Co. Does the Right Thing

Reversed their earlier, misguided decision.

Nice to see a Fort 500 company stand up and tell the wingnuts to piss off.

Yeah, not only did they decide to keep advertising, but they are expanding their advertising to several other lines that they had previously not advertised. Good job Ford! Now all you have to do is make a car that is worth buying.

I'm happy to see this turnaround. One nice thing about capitalism is that you sell to whomever will buy, and you care not who they are in any sense.

That's one of the bad things about capitalism, too (think, arms sales), but I'll take it.

Doug,

You are right. This sort of thing also points out how Republicans don't believe in the market. Whether it's corporate welfare, trade restrictions or "no-bid" contracts, Republicans prefer to "control" the economy rather than let it develop freely. If gays want to buy cars and Ford wants to sell them, why should the Republicans seek to destroy these sorts of free market transactions? The answer is that they don't believe in market freedoms, they want to be in charge of the new "command economy."

Agreed. We need those supposed free-marketers to actually stand up and get pissed off.
