Wow ... I can't imagine that the Founding Fathers had much to say about the auto
industry, since cars didn't come along until much later. Take a chill pill. It's
going to take more than a few months to undo the untold damage to the U.S. that
Bush inflicted over the past eight years.
Don't we need green cars, isn't it in everyones best interest? We all have
bosses that tell us what to do everyday. Let's be fair here, President Obama is
handling one of the worst economic crisis we have had if not the worst. I
applaude him for getting the right things done at no one's expense and nearly
everyone's benefit. The auto makers should have been on top of this years ago.
Remember they didn't want to give up their private jets or make financial
concessions, they just got a little encouragement.
you are so right on all counts Frederick... too bad America was so stupid as
to buy into the "change" mantra imposed on them by the antry, hateful left.
The price was way too high and apparently going to go higher!
When you say the founding fathers sought equality with the Declaration of
Independence. . .did that include their slaves? No? Oh. . so you are lying
then.When you are saying the president ORDERED the car industry to
change. . .how did he go about doing this? Pressure that they so richly need?
Well that isn't ordering. A president can't "order" the car industry to do that.
So you lied again.So why should anyone believe your silly opinions?
I have a feeling you are still hurting that your "team" lost so bad in November.
One and done, door closed and a lot of Americans will right the ship Left or
Right, even those that voted for the guy are starting to see the holes in his
agenda. Stay tuned!
President Obama makes this American PROUD once more. The arrogant thieves of
Bushco are GONE! There is hope for our country despite people like red-ranters
who entertain us with their letters to DES NEWS.
Mr. Anderson,We get it that you don't like President Obama. Many
Utahns don't. OK, fine, you're entitled to your opinion. The fact
remains that the "door" that the majority of American voters showed Mr. Obama
was the door leading into the White House. Deal with that fact. It's called democracy.I think he's doing a fine job as President.
Someone clearly hates America but I am not sure its Obama. Why so much hate and
anger towards our fairly elected president or democratic voting process and the
majority of Americans who voted for him?
Amen, amen and amen.He violates his oath of office nearly every minute.
What has the Obama administration done that is constitutional? All the Czars?
The seizing of the banks, manufacturing, financial take over, medicine, firing
CEO's , setting pay and bonuses? Where in the constitution is he given this
power? I can show you the articles that make what he has done and is doing
ILLEGAL. Is this the CHANGE you voted for Democrats? Power to the dictator? You
really want this? He is starving out the Californian farmers just like the
Kulak's were starved out of their farms in Russia. When are you going to wake
up? Look at Iran see how hard it is to get your freedom back once it is lost?
"President Obama "ordered" the car industry to make green cars. The Founding
Fathers called this tyranny."Then what the [blank] would you
call "ordering" an illegal, immoral and unwinnable war?Neocons have
clearly lost their minds.
Qualities like leadership and oratory skills are certainly to be seen as alien
in Utah. Put the tinfoil hat back on, they're coming to get you!
It's too bad that Frederick does not buy into the whole democracy thing. There
was an election. The President won overwhelmingly. Frederick will have his
chance to vote for or against the President in 2012. Then America will choose
again. Frederick, that is democracy, the system we have. Your hatred is
palpable, evidenced by this letter and the others you have written. You might
want to reign it in, because, like it or not, the President is in office and
will remain so. Instead of viciously attacking, why don't you affirmatively
promote your own candidate for the next election. And explain why instead of
calling names and making completely false statements. Tyr it sometime. Maybe
you could actually study about our system of government, too.
Yo Fredrick, move along Rush will be on in a couple of hours!
Re: orders from headquarters"Then what the [blank] would you
call "ordering" an illegal, immoral and unwinnable war?"That's
different. Ordering other people's children to fight and die in a preemptive war
against another country which did not attack us is fine but ordering a business
to do something or not get any government help is a horrible thing."Neocons have clearly lost their minds."Once you realize that they
are always right and that they can vote on who lives and dies then everything
will be fine. Also, make sure you don't go anywhere near their money. That's off
limits but they will tax us to their hearts delight and use our taxes to advance
their own interest and in the process they may even make sure a few thousand of
us die in wars of aggression so they have a higher chance of winning an election
the next time they vote.To sum up their position in one word: MEIf it doesn't have to do with them then it doesn't matter but if it
benefits them it is good and if a few thousand people die so be it.
Ahhhh. The shoe is on the other foot now. Had we only been able to show Pres.
Bush-league the door so early in his tenure.....We would have hundreds of
trillions of extra dollars not frittered away on lies, un-needed wars, and
lining the pockets of his fat-cat Repub cronies. Sorry pal. Grin and bear
I am beginning to think it is the democrats who have no minds. Falling at the
feet of Obama and worshipping his every word and deed. At least try and be
objective.I for one was very unhappy with President Bush and I am a
conservative. Just because Obama is different does not make him better. He
will destroy your freedoms and you are kissing his feet as he does it.
Why is it that whenever a DNews letter mentions "the founding fathers", I feel
the need to turn the page? I am sure the founders were nice guys and all, but
they were after all politicians and divided fiercely into partisan camps at
that. This letter trying to connect the fathers, the auto bailout and the
President takes the cake. Next.
If we just gave this letter writer and everyone else a tax cut, we'd all be
happy! That's the GOP way!Go Bristol Palin! You go girl!
To Paranoid Far Right Wingers: Attention! Attention! President Obama gets to
tell the US auto industry what to do, because our representatives voted Detroit
a fat bailout, for which in return we the people now own a majority of GM! For
too long Detroit as dragged it corporate tail trying to keep change from
happening. Now it will! The Founding Fathers never wrote anything about Detroit
because they could not have conceived for such an industry. They mostly
embraced Tom Jefferson's idyllic social construct of a nation of independent,
self sufficient farmers. Michael: I don't think you can compare the giant
agribusinesses and millionaire farmers of California's central valleys with the
Kulaks. The kulaks were peasants, the subsidies these California agri-giants
receive put them in the regal class. Had Bush and Cheney not engineered this
economic crisis with weak bank regulation and wasted money on war in the Iraq,
President Obama and Congress would not be taking such historically significant
actions in the first place. I love your myopic view of the situation. It makes
me laugh! Please see a good optometrist, it make you feel better when you can
view reality without your distortions.
