I would guess that the stimulus boosts the battery industry EXACTLY as much as Chrysler's cutbacks hurt it.
I have some bad news for this idiot. Plenty of people have survived jumping out of planes without parachutes.
Nick Alkemade was an RAF tail gunner in World War II who jumped out of his flaming plane and fell 18,000 feet. He only suffered a sprained leg after he hit a tree and landed in snow.
Vesna Vulovic was a flight attendant who fell out of a plane after an explosion, fell in snow, and survived.
