I bought a car yesterday. My wife said "go check the local Saturn dealer, they are good cars" So my two kids and I drove over to take a look. Now where I am living, we have public transportation, City busses. However the drivers are on strike. They are teamsters and are striking for unfair wages and the like. I am sure it is a noble cause. But that leaves allot of people in a lurch, like my wife. She uses the bus to get to work. So it is in her best interest to have a second car. So buying a car is actual supporting the teamsters if you think about it, but I am also hurting the bus drivers locally.
