Chrysler Group LLC lost $652-million (U.S.) last year, but the company will hand out performance bonuses for 2010 to almost all its employees before repaying taxpayer loans of $7.6-billion (U.S.) that kept the company alive during the auto crisis. The auto maker, however, forecast a profit for the current year and said its turnaround is so far advanced that the company can afford to share its improving fortunes with workers.
I know I owe you all this money, but you can stick it really I'm going to give out bonuses instead". I do believe the answer to that would be a padlock on my front door and closure of my business.

Come on! Stop being ignorant! They aren't stealing.. They loaned it.. No wonder anti-govt. folks are painted as delusional wackos.
Do you honestly not know the difference between a loan and stealing?
You can over dramatize this as much as you like.. It makes you look foolish!
The govt. may steal my money... And when I hear about it .. I am up in arms.. This is a loan, and I am smart enough to see that!
