How can you possibly be "happily" married when you spend all hours on Usenet
bitching and moaning? Who do you consult for? Something is wrong with the
picture of you, and you damned well know it. As for me, I don't, nor have I
ever worked for the UAW, CAW, GM, or any supplier of GM.
I don't watch CBC for the brainwash.... gives you a first hint.
Who I consult for is none of your business.
And so what you haven't worked for the idiots, why then don't you go out and
pay MSRP on a GM?
I believe you.
It is people like you who work at GM and have helped it get bankrupt
Insightful. 80 Knight is probably a union ranter and in some undclosed way
contributed to GM or/and Chrysler's downfall.
Many like to skirt the union roles in this. Management, board, union,
suppliers all had a hand in GM's demise. But I do hold the board and
management ultimately responsible, as when silly union demands came in, they
should have put the brakes on decades ago.
The best part, is they are about to take the first step to get out of the
taxpayers pocket. Give todays opening numbers, this may be sooner than
later which is good.
Gosi, you really shouldn't edit people's post's. It makes you look like an
even bigger Troll/Asshole then you already are. Plus, it proves that you
have no reasonable debate skills, and have the intellect of a 3rd grader.
Only if you consider buying there products 'contributing to there downfall'.
I have stated many times that I don't work for, nor have I ever worked for
GM, the CAW, UAW, or even any supplier to GM. Unfortunately, you can't seem
to grasp that...But, that isn't the only thing you can't grasp, so there
isn't much of a surprise there.
Well, well. Will wonders never cease. I actually agree with you here. GM,
Chrysler, and Ford just kept agreeing to Union demands. They should've
known that couldn't last forever.
But, what ever will you do if GM enters Chapter 11, or 7? Where will you
spend all of the countless hours that you spend on the GM group bashing
everyone who likes there vehicles? I would suggest spending it with your
wife, but I assume she has grown tired of your bitterness, and left your ass
some times ago (if you were married at all). See, I have known many people
like you. You are an "Arm-Chair-Doer". That means, you do nothing in real
life, you just bitch and moan in front of your computer, thinking you are
accomplishing something, when in fact, you aren't in the slightest. Go play
a baseball game, a soccer game, visit an oil field, I don't care, just don't
be so damned bitter all the time. You're getting older, and it isn't good
for you, and you know it. Listen to your Doctor, they usually do know best.
Having read "Canuck"'s posting profile on Google, it seems (other then
cross-posted threads) he has never posted in a Dodge, Chrysler, or Ford
group, regarding the Government loans. I think he has a real hard on for
GM. I presume, he either worked at a GM plant, and was fired for
negligence, or his wife ran away with a CAW or UAW member. Either way, he
ain't that bright, and is a hypocrite to boot. He is also too chicken shit
to answer my question of what industry he works in. I find that highly
suspicious. Perhaps he doesn't even have a job, which would explain the
hours he spends on the GM Newsgroup babbling on about the same shit.
We do what we do best. Right now that's agriculture, mining, petroleum,
forestry. That's the most efficient way to oraganize labor and capital
investment. IF we were competitive in the auto industry no problem. We would
build them here. I'm sure NA won't stop buying cars.
Your's is the same old argument. We MUST keep things the way there were at
all costs. Protectionsim helped create the conditions for the last great
war. Trade wars bring real wars. The world's resources and labor are not
evenly distributed. The way to build peace and happiness for all people in
the world is to TRADE. Either let some of the over populated areas relocate
to less populated or ship the raw materials over there to let them process.
Now I can just visualize the uproar about allowing more migration.
Competition for jobs here. Blasphemy.
So what's your poison? Build conditions for another great war? Allow
imigration? Reorganize our factories and labor costs?
Either way you slice it our factories are hooped in their present form.
True. But I bet they will not be buying as many or as expensive autos going
forward. Between the markets, job losses and future debt-corruption hit
there is going to be less wealth in North America than before. This
recession/depression is going to widen the have and have not gaps, and the
only growth class will be working poor.
Jim has a rationality problem. Fear of change and competition type.
As you are right, part of this is about wealth redistribution and the
government isn't doing anything meaningful at all. Not really much they can
do but throttle our wealth.
Agreed. This country is built on immigrants, I have no issue with
immigration other than their criteriea for getting in needs to be better
than will have lots of little taxpayers and pay taxes. Many turn out to be
gangs, killers, refuse from other counties. Our extradition of these needs
to be liberally streamlined.
Who knows? If statism government feals it is loosing control of the herd,
manufacture a war somewhere to keep people occupied, some think this has
already occured and they might be right.
Yep, our factories have too much executive, tax and union lard in them to be
Not as hard as I did last year, which was my highest taxed year ever. I saw
how much taxes I was paying, and said this year I will work 1/2 as much.
Right on track and taxes owed are much lower.
Why bust a gut for the government? Let someone else pick up the taxes I
will not pay this year. I don't need the money that bad anyways. In fact
if I could work 2-3 days a week at what I do I would. Worse yet, it used to
be income from outside of Canada, that is it was a net income to Canada.
That is the part I let go. Kept the easy stuff with less hours.
What I do is for you to figure out. But suffice, it isn't McDonnalds, they
couldn't afford me. And a hint, I make more than an auto slacker and do it
without a union.
My job isn't the issue here bone head.
GMs abuse of the tax system and the corruption it creates. Taking from
non-auto, many which get laid off without a bailout and make a lot less.
No, stick to the subject, it is GM/CAW/UAW greed and selfishness spiced in
with private equity bailouts for the rich. For example, Carlyle will also
be in trouble if GM goes under, the Harvard rich boys club with names like
Quale, Bush, Bin Ladden...
It is about corruption.
No, but it could answer an underlying question as to why you have such a
hard on for GM, yet not Chrysler.
Municipalities with GM plants prosper when those plants are working to
capacity. Just look at what the lay offs are doing to Durham Region.
Now it comes out. Bin Laden...Wow, I think you read too much bullshit on
the internet. I should have known you were "one of those". So, which of
the following was a conspiracy: Pearl Harbor, the Moon Landing, 9/11, etc.
I think you need to replace your tin foil hat, get back to your supposed
happily married wife, and quite bitching on a newsgroup. With all the anger
you display here, I feel sorry for the prick your wife must have to live
with. Get some counseling, and move on with your life. Governments are
going to do whatever they want, and there isn't a damned thing you are going
to change on a Newsgroup, get used to it.
