After reading some of the replies to Uncle Ralph's forum on the Chrysler dealers who lost their franchises I was tempted to commiserate with the dealers who, in my considered opinion, were illegally put out of business by an administration whose real agenda is only now coming to light. The illegal and unconstitutional actions that the administration took in the forced bankruptcy of Chrysler to subordinate preferred creditors interests in favor of the blatantly corrupt unions as "pay back" for buying votes through the illegal funding of Acorn, their related union - SEIU - and the UAW donations placed through the auto industry Czar appointed by Obama - that was formerly a democratic fund raiser - should be actionable. Frankly I am just getting started with what is wrong with what has happened to the Chrysler dealers and what is planned for the General Motors dealers that have sacrificed their american dream for the misguided agenda of a Facist government that was voted into office by a naive electorate who was mislead by our generation's version of Hitler!

Now that I have made my position and support for the dealers clear - and if I haven't please call me directly since I am sure that these comments will get me on the list for the concentration camps that are soon to follow for the "tea baggers" who dare to challenge our shift to socialism/marxism/facism and taxation with out representation - but, now to the point of this forum.

GET OVER IT! As the son of our previous generation's Hitler I recognize that Hitler's friends did very well during his reign. Of course the end game eventually showed that they were simply further down the list of casualties but at least they preserved a chance to live to fight another day. Those dealers that had their franchises stolen and handed to the administration's friend down the street are still alive and they need to act like it! New car profits, especially from Chrysler and GM, haven't been able to support a facility for over a year and the sales volume reflected by today's economy have compounded the problem. Auto Dealers are survivors and the good ones have already shifted their focus to Used Cars and fixed operations so my advice is to follow their lead - even though you may have been forced to do so - and see the glass as half full instead of empty.

Of course if you were one of those dealers that were extorted into building a new facility after turning down a Toyota dealership due to Chrysler's and/or GM's site control and/or if your new vehicle inventory represents over a 100 day supply because you decided to do your part to carry the burden of "your partner's" need to keep the Union busy building cars that you couldn't sell then you have a different set of options. Yes, there are still solutions for those who seek them!

I represent a venture capital firm, New Wave Automotive, LLC, , (N.W.A.), that is a diversity approved group of minority dealer operators with the funds and people to acquire your dealership in whole or in part. I have also linked this relationship with another company that I represent, Colliers Abood Wood-Fay Real Estate, - an International Commercial Real Estate office - with an auto industry division, Colliers Automotive Real Estate Services, (C.A.R.S.), that stands ready, willing and able to help those dealers whose site control contracts have likely now lapsed to sell their facilities for the highest and best use.

If you are a dealer forced to sell due to your current debt service perhaps a partnership with NWA will allow you to preserve your american dream. If you have lost your confidence in the retail auto industry and you want to cash in your chips there are dealer/operators out there with the funds to purchase your dealership and run it until the market returns; and it will!

Yes, for some it is time to get out of the car business but for others it is time to get in! Whichever one you are - I would like to help. After all, what are friends for!

Phillip, it's a good thing they closed gitmo down, you would have been on the next plane there. That is assuming they haven't already taken you off to another undisclosed location.:)
Oh sh*t Ralph, I think the government has picked up Phillip, he has never gone this long without replying to a post!!
Jon, should we put a tracer on Phil's Blackberry Storm? Who knows what strange calamity may have befallen our hero! I hope he didn't do anything drastic because I missed calling in to his Blog Talk Radio "Lunch with Ralph" show last Thursday... Hey, I was WORKING at Lone Star Chevy in Houston, and Joe Healy is intense, there was no escaping his team to call into a talk show!
We can try activate the GPS on his phone, but by this point they probably already have him secured in a concrete bunker buried deep in a mountain, so I doubt we will get a signal. I will miss Phillip, but I guess we can always petition for his release after the Obama administration has left the White House. Should we start putting together a free Phillip fund?
Count me in, I can pledge $20 towards the "Free Philip Zelinger" cause... Unless, of course, if Ross Perot runs for office again, then my money's gotta go to his 3rd election campaign!
Geez Ralph, I figured you for a Nader man:) It's hard to find a more auto industry friendly book than Unsafe at any Speed
Jon, the fact that Nader is also a "Ralph" has compelled me to TRY, TRY and TRY to like him... After all, he probably suffered the same childhood abuse and torment as many of us who share the "Ralph" moniker... But, try as I might to like him, every time I see or hear Mr. Nader speak, more often than not I find myself thinking "This douche bag does not even DESERVE to bear the name Ralph"... Which (for those of us who were given this first name at birth), becomes a badge of honor once we survive past the age of say, 30 or so... Hey, I just got an idea... I wonder if an online community for people named "Ralph" might be a viable concept??? But, the Nader (formerly known as Ralph) would get banned faster than the Russian Mail Oder Brides did!
Are you going for a record starting ning networks? Knowing you, you started working on the new Ralph social network as soon as you hit "Add Reply" on your last comment. Let me guess, the first person you will try to get signed up is Ralphie from A Christmas Story.
You also need to try to get the Voice Actor for Ralph from the Simpsons. Since he does several characters on the Simpsons that would boost your number of members exponentially!
Hey Guys,

Just send the check to me directly for my defense fund! I don't know why but I haven't gotten any emails telling me that there were some posts to my forum? Now that I think of it, I haven't been getting notices for some time now so has something changed on the site or maybe I accidentally switched my notices off?

In any case, I am alive and well but seriously PISSED OFF by the nationalization of the auto industry that we all know and love. Add that to the monetization of our debt and the pending hyper inflation that is sure to follow, the shift to trans-nationalism to replace our constitution with international law, the card check law eliminating our right to a private vote to keep the unions out of our lives, the appointment of Czars to run every aspect of our lives with no checks or balances by the Judicial or Legislative branch or even the ability of the people to hold them accountable, our decision to recognize Hamaas and diminish our support for the only democratic country in the middle east - Israel, our support of Iran having the right to develop nuclear energy to eliminate the evil United States and Israel, the acceptance of a Facist form of government (Look up the definition and note that it definitely does apply to our present administrations actions) and too many other obvious hidden agendas to list in this reply.

In any case, until they take me away I will continue to believe in the capatalistic entrepreneurial America that was built on individual rights in favor of a communal society that has already allowed for the birth of the world's last Obama like leader - better known as HITLER!
