Don't Stand Next To Paul-Head Explosion Alert-Warning! Warning!

According to this article from Associated Press Government Motors currently owned by the Obama administration may soon become part Chinese. What will Paul Wohlfarth think of this revoltin' development? Who cares? Investment bankers handling the upcoming General Motors Co. stock sale are expected to court foreign investors as well as those in North America, according to a U.S. Treasury Department statement.

GM and the Treasury Department would not comment Sunday on reports that the automaker is in talks with its current partner in China, SAIC, about buying a stake in the Detroit company. SAIC is owned by the Chinese government.

Americans are getting paid back from the loan they gave to General Motors and Chrysler. TARP funds have averted a disaster that would have led to another Great Depression. Richie Rich Iott was against such loans and would have supported "Tough Love" creating the loss of fifty thousand manufacturing jobs directly here in North West Ohio. Why? Because of his rigid belief of limited government and choosing his strict belief in the archaic constitutional over the needs of North West Ohio. He's said it before he'll not be running for reelection and will make the hard decisions. Voters be damned.

what exactly do you mean by that, because in past posts, you've implied that a loan should be a gift.

?

Does this mean that they will shelve the Chevy Tamale in order to put the all new Chevy Springroll into full production?

The fruits of MY labor are not a social commodity.

No it means while the American Tea Bag Taliban screams for free markets, free enterprise and limited government the Chinese will continue to manipulate their currency and target industry after industry with government cash to dominate the world economy. So while we fight amongst ourselves the real communist Chinese quietly move in for the kill. They buy up industries for their technology, transferring it to a low wage China therefor creating more jobs and a stronger economy for Cnina. This downward competition is affecting all Americans not just the manufacturing base. Across the country we worry about Muslims when the real threat is as close as the nearest WalMart. So you might be a flag waving American but the Trojan Horse is inside the American walls (WalMart) and we can't seem to see the big picture. http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/row/RL33536.pdf

GOP senator booed by UAW members at GM plant ceremony

Tennessee's two Republican U.S. senators and one GOP congresswoman, all of whom opposed a federal bailout of General Motors, were on hand in Spring Hill, Tenn., on Friday as the automaker announced it would rehire 483 laid-off workers, Jalopnik's Justin Hyde notes. One of them, Sen. Bob Corker, was heartily booed by the largely United Auto Worker members on hand and a UAW official told them members won't forget who supported them at election time.

A year after the bailout, General Motors is back in the black, hoping to hatch an initial public offering of stock that will lessen its majority ownership by U.S. taxpayers.

But in Spring Hill, the plan to build Ecotec four-cylinder engines brought all smiles until Sen. Bob Corker, a leader of opposition to GM's bailout, was introduced, drawing catcalls.

Jalopnik notes Corker's before after statements:

Then: "This administration has decided they know better than our courts and our free market process how to deal with these companies....This is a major power grab." - March 30, 2009.
Now: "At the end of the day we all have to feel good about what we did," said Corker, who did attempt to negotiate the failed 2008 aid package. "I contributed to strengthening the auto industry in this country."

The other two GOP lawmakers who opposed to the bailout but who showed up at the ceremony were Sen. Lamar Alexander and U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn. Tennessee is also the home to Toyota's Camry plant and other automakers' plants.

I can tell you Rich Iott will get the same treatment from UAW members. Make a note one exception JeepMaker!

Are you sure Ben Konop wasn't on stage?

They dont' mean anything Paul. Politicians get booed.

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson’s decisive vote in favor of the Senate’s health care bill. Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, “Get him the hell out of here!” And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.

Sen. Ben Cardin had to shout his way through a town hall meeting Monday evening, where angry constituents booed and jeered as the Democratic senator from Maryland tried to explain health care reform working its way through Congress

Today at the three-day Take Back America Conference in Washington DC, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton was booed by much of the crowd when she stuck to her no-discernible-stance waffle on the Iraq War.

It was only a matter of time before General Motors turned into Geely Motors. Our domestic operation is too loaded up with legacy expenses imposed by unionization and our crippled health-insurance system. We're going to wake up one day and find our cars stamped all over their parts with Chinese characters.

The U.S. automakers can't make the cheap, efficient car that the future needs, even if they wanted to (and they do not want to, make no mistake about that). They can't make them under the present union system of manufacturing. The unions want too much money to support the bloated lifestyles of their workers. They will continue making SUVs until one day a "merger" is announced, the last few tens of thousands of union shitheads are fired, and the production lines are re-tooled under a massive project, to re-open a few months later to make the $5000 efficient cars that we've been denied all this time.

Of course, by then, the median household income (from the high of $52K in 2007) will fall to about $35K, so paying $5000-8000 for one of new cars will be the same fiscal load for Americans.

How about this for a solution: We front load our indebtedness overseas importing all the plastic and junk we can handle, sell as many securities and long term treasury bills as possible, spin off as much real estate as we can move, peddle our unused manufacturing capacity, throw in a toaster or two(made in Manila) and then when the due bill comes flip foreclosure and just say "solly charlie!"

What's funny about this is if they are bought out by a Chinese company maybe they'll make a better product! LOL it can't get much worse LOL

I give you the Brilliance BS6:

See how the A Pillar folds in two? That's not supposed to happen, especially not at 40MPH.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

"I can tell you Rich Iott will get the same treatment from UAW members. Make a note one exception JeepMaker!"

Well, at least you're right about SOMETHING.
Unlike certain, spineless, mindless, sheep/parrots, I have a mind of my own.

"We're all riding on the Hindenburg, no sense fighting over the window seats"-Richard Jenni

Richie Rich would have voted down TARP money for Chrysler which would have thrown the company into bankruptcy which would eliminate much of JeepMakers pension and healthcare benefits. Again why would you vote for the unmade man? The benefactor of family wealth. You worked for that pension. Slaved on the assembly line for over thirty years just to give it up to those that have no skin in the game.

So the man was born onto a family with money. What would you have him do, kill himself?
Who would I be giving my pension to? You make it sound like Iott was trying to take my pension.
As you know we already lost some of our healthcare benefits. Of course the union will tell you, it's the companies fault, and that may be partially true, but just how hard did they argue against those benefits being reduced?
I'd like to know what kind of benefits the union "leadership" gets.

Have you ever thought of getting counseling JeepMaker? Your thought process is truly amazing.
Here, if the Idiot was your Rep two years ago he would have voted against our interests (Chrysler) and we would of ended up like the 5000 FoodTown employees. Your pension would have lost the bridge to age 65 which means the thirty + years you worked would have had the pension cut in half. Further you would have lost the health care bennies and at your age would have been given basically a life of poverty. So JeepMaker the sheep in wolves clothing has not a care in the world for you while the working people scurry to put out life's fires!

Yes Jeepmaker wake up. Instead we have a company run by the government, paying thier CEO a $9 million contract, and getting ready to sell a portion of the company to China. That's a lot better than going into bankruptcy and coming out of it with a better business plan.

Wolfboy, you wouldn't recognize a thought process if it bit you in the ass. You don't think, you wait for the union to say "jump", then you ask, "how high?"
