Green is not a nice color. Don't hate the Auto Workers and Don't hate and the American Icons.
It is as if some people are rolling in a bath of self pity because they did/do, not make the money the auto workers make, and that self pity manifest itself in the form of Green hatred.
Remember the commercials of the 70's
Chrysler: Built by Americans, For Americans
GM: Baseball, Apple pie and Chevrolet
Ford: The closer you look, the better we look
