It wasn't just mis-management in these failed Automotive companies that brought
them down (i.e.: GM, Chrysler, and the Auto Industry as a whole); but
$3.00-$4.00/gallon gas for three successive summers, a failed banking industry,
and a very corrupt UAW...hum, it make you wonder who is running the show behind
the scenes... You never hear anything but: Detroit hasn't been making what the
people want...Oh really? Why were we able to sustain a demand for nearly 16
million SUV's, Trucks, and the kind of cars we've been driving for the past 20
years when the economy was good???...BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT WE WANTED!!!! Now
we'll be driven to buy 4-door yugo tin-cans (in the name of global warming) that
no one will ever buy! So how does that "Stimulate your wallet" ???Anyone that believes any of the "bull-cookies" that the Dems are spoon-feeding
us about: "global-warming this and "please think green" that is just plain
stupid! Wake up America, NOBAMA is destoying this country faster than you can
re: Anonymous | 9:00 a.m. June 1, 2009 //And blaming the unions is
wrong. It is a poor management situation.//No, its not wrong to
blame the Unions. They and the management are both to blame.Here is
what gets me. The media saying that GM needs to build small cars like that
should be their exclusive objective. NO!There need to be less
compacts, subcompacts, Humungous Trucks/SUV's. There doesn't need to be
anything larger out there than a Suburban and those s/b rare. Same goes for
Aveos, etc...What GM needs to do is build reliable, dependable mid
size cars and trucks i.e. Cadillac CTS's, Buick Lucerene's, Chevy Impala's &
Malibus, & GMC Canyons.
Good think the federal government didn't pour billions of dollars to those car
companies, because they are too big to fail and go into bankruptcy. Oh
wait. I guess the politicians will be sending out their apology
press releases to explain why it didn't work.Oh wait.If you
want to know what wrong with this country, look to the "leadership" in
Washington DC found in congress and the White House. PS you can
find lots of "leadership" problems both this year AND last.
. . . that the automakers would be better off going through bankruptcy before
they accepted billions in bailout money that did nothing but go down the rat
hole, and who was criticized routinely in the press for such an outrageous idea?
Oh yeah, that would be Mitt Romney.
I have always bought american...but will not support government motors or
chrysler... running out of options.
Buying a new Govt Motors Auto is just doing business with the DMV.....next up
DMV Healthcare!Obummer out in 4!
It's a good thing the government hasn't poured in millions of tax dollars to try
and help the auto company before this!!! I know General Motors as Government
Motors will be in MUCH BETTER HANDS as the Government owns the majority of the
company! That will make them so much leaner and meaner it will make a HUGE
DIFFERENCE! The government, the guys who collect your taxes, run the executive,
legislative and judicial branches, and the Post Office! Oh, don't forget how
successful Amtrak is!!! How can GM fail now!!! Wow are they in trouble or what?
to "Who to buy now" I hate to even have to point this out to you but....you
might ought to re think that there jethro. YOU OWN THE COMPANY! Are you kidding
me!? Think man, Think.If you're biggest concern is what brand you should
buy next...my guess is that it will be the same brand you drive now...OLD and
WORN OUT, with a great radio and at least 3 mag wheels(savin up fer the othern
cuz the spare was on'er when ya took'er home, guy befor you musta sold the other
mag one huh)My goodness use your head bro.
It seems to me that Jim Matheson voted for the $50 Billion bail-out. Has anyone
asked him how we are getting that money back?
This is wrong. Government cannot buy businesses. It needs to stay out of the
private sector. I can't run social security, welfare, a post office, how will
gov. run a car company. Where's the billions in bail outs. This is a black
hole an it is wrong.
you should stick to sports commentary ... seems to me you might understand that
better than you do economics..
Craig said, "Obama motors is doing nothing to reduce union expenses."That is not true. A simple reading of news reports would show you that the
president required stiff concessions from the union, and the union agreed to
them.It is clear that many on this board are prejudiced against the
president. This type of mindless hatred will weaken our country.
Of course Union ataleast partly to blame,UNions are nothing but big
businness themselves, with CEOS's, big shiny buildings, lawyers, lobbyists,
etc,whose product is labor,all they care about is gettng
whatever they can for their "product",and they do not care who get
hurts,they do not care about their "product", the laborers who work
for them,they do not care about businesses who "buy" their labor.The unions CEO's and corporations, only care making a profit.So yeah, they are partly to blame.
Hello everyone. The excellent site, has especially liked design. Thanks.While
we have the gift of life, it seems to me that only tragedy is to allow part of
us to die - whether it is our spirit, our creativity, or our glorious
uniqueness.I am from Palau and bad know English, please tell me right I
wrote the following sentence: "Buy imitreximitrex sumatriptan is an antimigraine
medicine."Thank ;-) Ginton.
