Union workers idled by GM? Possible head explosion alert. Move away from Paul Wohlfarth

How ironic. GM the government/union owned auto manufacturer is laying off workers in N Y state because they can't get parts from JAPAN!!!!!!! Oh man Paul that must make your head explode. An American car built by union workers using Japanese parts. From the Detroit Free Press: General Motors Co. is halting some production at its Buffalo, N.Y., engine plant because of a slowdown in parts from Japan.
GM is also temporarily laying off 59 of the 623 workers at the Tonawanda Engine Plant. The workers make engines for a GM pickup factory in Shreveport, La., that is closed this week because of a shortage of parts from Japan. GM has also laid off 800 workers in Shreveport.
GM doesn’t know when production will resume in Buffalo. Workers will get most of their pay while they’re on layoff. So far, GM is the only U.S.-based automaker to be affected by parts shortages. Ford and Chrysler say they haven’t slowed production yet but are monitoring the situation.

Irradiated imported products from Japan are cause for alarm. Sushi restaurants across the American landscape are now suffering from questions of irradiated fish imported from Japan. Auto parts and imported Japanese autos could be contaminated with radioactive Iodine 131, Cesium 137, Strontium, or Plutonium 239 raising the specter of rising cancer risks to the American public. With the fervor of our deregulated smaller government downsizing our regulatory agencies foreign imports are not being inspected for this life threatening risk. Better to shun the Japanese brands till the threat is better researched and pinpointed with proper testing of incoming products. Plutonium 239 has a half-life of 24100 years. The average Toyota or Honda import may last 10 year but the danger from Plutonium 239 is it will migrate to bones and bone marrow causing fatal cancers.

Well then I sure hope you used Purell after you spent your day installing jap parts on the cars you screwed together all your life. Hate to see you drop dead or something.

The next batch of road-oilers are going to come with geiger counters. All sane people agree radiation in cars is aggravated by the extra exposure one gets from tooling around town in one, for hours at a time in some cases. I can't think of a better way to show your jealousy of American auto workers, than by ending up with cancer. That will show 'em.

Well you heard it from me first! The next big blow to the Japanese.
