Thanks for the bailout money, suckers!

Sure, nobody at General Motors has had the courage to say that aloud to taxpayers, but that sure is the impression they're creating. Why? Because an exclusive investigation shows that the parking lot of one of GM's biggest centers is filled with foreign cars!

As the company speeds toward bankruptcy and is ready to receive billions of dollars of government bailout money, we decided to take a closer look.

BMW. Toyota. Honda. Acura. Nissan. Those are just a few of the foreign cars that discovered filling the parking lot at the GM Technical Center in Warren, Michigan.

More than 16,000 people are employed by GM at that non-manufacturing location, according to the company's official Web site. With their salaries soon to be supplemented by Mr. & Mrs. Taxpayer, people working at or visiting the technical center have shown their confidence -- in the competition.

Breaking News's photographer visited GM's plant April 2. The parking lot is private for visitors, people doing business at the facility and for others, but it was easy to see the cars through the fence. We also observed cars leaving of the lot, past the guard gate and onto the public street.

Sure there were American cars, some even made by GM! But the foreign presence was substantial and makes us wonder exactly what the company means by this slogan posted on its Web site:

"We obsess over quality so you don't have to."

Ok then. We're going to obsess about our tax dollars bailing out auto companies whose parking lots are filled with foreign cars!
