(WXYZ) - Ford Motor is stepping up to help the victims of the recent wave of tornadoes.

The Ford Motor Company Fund is donating $75,000 to the American Red Cross and the Dare to Care food bank in Louisville. Ford employees are expecting to raise another $25,000 through donations to help their neighbors.

The money will be used to help victims of the tornadoes in southern Indiana and Kentucky. Other employees are volunteering their time to help victims rebuild in southern Ohio.

Meanwhile, union- and government-controlled GM is trying to figure out a way to pass legislation mandating all those who have been harmed by the tornadoes to purchase a Volt.

....and the 0pansy admin came out the other day and declared that the folks there “do not qualify” for FEMA assistance.

hmmmm.....perhaps those folks wiped out by the tornadoes are ‘bitter clingers, or NotHolders Peoples’..... just a thought.
