Thanks for this link. This article is RICH with signals and "slaps in the face" to the UAW-lovers who post on this blog and have put all of their eggs in the "Obama saved Detroit" basket.

What do you suppose Chrysler CEO Marchionne means when he says:

"As part of our global expansion of the Jeep brand, there are some cars — that because of the price position in the market — can never be made in the U.S. and exported."

TRANSLATION: The UAW has made it impossible to build a union-made car that can be priced to sell outside of the U.S. Heck, if the Chinese are allowed to buy an affordable Jeep, why can't we? And how long do you think it will be before Italian-owned Chrysler will grow tired of dealing with the untouchable, lazy, and incompetent UAW workforce? Also, I thought that we bailed-out Chrysler so it could become a worldwide power? Well, I guess that will be at the expense of U.S. workers.

Also, what intelligent person would be willing to buy stock if Chrysler goes ahead with an IPO? Do you remember how investors were treated during the Obama bail-out?

I fixed the quote.

""Itsa part ova da global-a expansione of the Jeep-a brand, there is-a some cars — that because ova da price position in da market — can n'vah be made in-a da U.S. and exported. Forgettabout it!"

He sounds like Mario and Luigi.

Buy American!

This is just Proof that Romney lied!!!

Here's a refresher. http://swampbubbles.com/blogs/wolfman/20121129/romney-s-lies-real-china-...

Romney clearly lied. He said Jeep would ship jobs to China. They're clearly not doing that. They're shipping jobs to China AND RUSSIA!

Does Mitt Romney have no sense of decency?

Yawn...old news. Redundant, been covered months ago.

If this is old news why would the Detroit News carry it as though it were new? What is their agenda in repeating news? Did Marchione make the announcement at the opening of the Detroit Auto Show, YES.

Same reason FOXNEWS Detroit rehashed the Chrysler worker story during the Right-to-Work battle last month. http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/20292017/chrysler-auto-workers-fired-a...
Stir up controversy. After all its the DEtroit News!

Fact check: Romney comments false

FYI

and, FWIW, even Walmart is mostly unionized in China. Just Sayin...

Just as there is no political freedom in Communist China, THERE ARE NO FREE UNIONS IN COMMUNIST CHINA!! Walmart has made it abundantly clear that they will not open or operate any store where the workers are members of a free union.
The founder of Walmart, Sam Walton, was a patriotic American. His children, the Walton siblings are among the least patriotic of all Americans. The Communist government of China closely monitors and controls all unions there. And the government of China is fully complicit with employers. It's Walmart heaven!!

""The founder of Walmart, Sam Walton, was a patriotic American. His children, the Walton siblings are among the least patriotic of all Americans""
Mr. Dullapparatchik, who the hell are you to make a statement like that? Least patriotic according to who? You must be one of the types who has ideas rolling around in his head, waiting for one of them to drop down on your keypad, sort of gumballs dropping out of a gumball machine.

were made in America. Sam Walton encouraged American companies. He chose goods made by American companies over those made elsewhere.
Currently, Walmarts and Sam's stores have about 20% of their goods made in America. Executives from Walmart have contacted American suppliers over these past, post Sam Walton, years and demanded that suppliers sell them goods at prices so low the suppliers could not make a profit. The Walmart executives have encouraged the suppliers to find a way to supply the goods at the price Walmart was willing to pay, often suggesting that the company relocate out of America. Now, you might ask how this could happen? Why don't these suppliers just tell Walmart to take their business elsewhere? The answer is that Walmart is so big, the loss of that one gigantic account would force that supplier out of business.

Now, in a very recent news article, it is reported that Walmart is going to encourage American manufacturers. Also, Walmart is going to track more of their part-time employees toward full-time employment and make more employees qualified to receive company-supplemented benefits. Along with this, Walmart announced a program to hire every honorably discharged veteran who wants a job. If Walmart follows through with these policy changes, I will change my attitude toward the Walton siblings. We'll see.

Except they aren't shipping jobs out...nice try. Romney is still a lying bastard...

I agree he is clearly a liar. I think I did a good job pointing that out!

MikeyA

Don't they already build jeeps HERE? Can't they build MORE jeeps here? What's your defi nition of "shipping jobs out"? I'd rather be a lying bastard, than an infantile, gullible fool who thinks obimma is going to take care of American workers and jobs.

Also Mike, if we're going to go and get old posts, I like these -

But I'm sure you guys are correct this time... *roll eyes*

So are you calling the CEO of Italian-owned Jeep a liar?

MikeyA

I'm sure you are correct.

On what? Oh yeah, old posts. "Obama could care less about gun control and I agree with that." http://swampbubbles.com/20120126/not-peep-about-gun-control

I'm sure you're right about that.... *rolls eyes*

MikeyA

that he really enjoys gas above $3.55 for 4 years, unemployment above 8+% for 4 years, real American's losing $21 TRILLION in net worth's, losing two wars that were won, lying about OweBaMaoscare Healthnghtmare-lowerin costs/ premiums/ and cleansed idiots brains,and easily disproved statements like,"the private sector is doing fine". etc.

Liars love being lied to ?!

I suppose in their deranged, demented, and disgusting immoral World, this appeals to their obtuse cognition ?!

The average yearly income in China is around 8075 yuans which is just about $4397.00 U.S. dollars.

Do you Libs REALLY think that these Jeeps are going to be sold to the Chinese market when a Jeep would cost them close to 5 times their yearly income?

Look up the facts for yourself.

Great news for the UAW! This is a chance for them to find some now membership to grow the ranks. I wonder if they will hold a vote to unionize soon.

Why not, Fred? Then the new workers can help the Chicoms get rid of their large stock of "poppy-related" product by smoking it at lunch time, in the locker room, the parking lots and while working on the assembly lines.

How much do you think someone who makes $4397.00 U.S. dollars a year can afford to pay for a Jeep?

Now look at the article you posted the link to.
"The plant has initial annual capacity of 140,000 cars and is capable of eventually assembling 500,000 vehicles per year."

Where are those 1/2 MILLION Jeeps going to go if the average Chinese person only makes $4397.00 U.S. dollars a year?

That means one of two things will happen.

1) Either the Chinese made Jeep will be so inexpensive that the average Chinese person can afford to purchase it, then Walmart (who does alot of business with China) will start importing the Chinese made inexpensive Jeep and sellling it

-or-

2) There is already plans to import the Chinese made Jeeps because Fiat now owns controlling interest in Jeep and doesn't have to tell you anything about their plans. By the time the first Chinese made Jeeps arrive in the U.S. it will be too late for the UAW and the Obama regime to do anything about it.

Unfortunatly, by the time you find out I could be right, those jobs and your retirement pension will have been exported to China.

Remember this conversation in 2015 when the new Fiat owned Chinese Jeep plant starts exporting product.

Yes I've seen this coming since 1993 with the NAFTA sold to us by Bush 1 and "slick willy" Clinton. I've argued for decades in newspapers and online about the dangers of so-called Third World Free Trade. We were sold the idea of bringing up standards of living for the rest of the world when in fact it has back fired predictably. We, foolish Americans, bought into the "SERVICE ECONOMY" bull like lemmings over a cliff. Now look who the winners and the losers are! Concentrations of wealth have skyrocketed to the few among us, leaving the rest in poverty with little power over our lives. I'm sure GZ can add to this because we've seen this in much the same way. Those who think they are immune to the future will be sadly mistaken. Almost all Americans will suffer from the greed at the top. The country has been seriously mismanaged since the 1980s. It will get worse before it gets better by decades perhaps. Get out of the cities because the plutocrats will not support cities.

On another note: the main reason we cannot export to China is the tariffs imposed on all vehicle not made in China. On the Wrangler there are $25,000 dollar tax on every Jeep. Our federal government does nothing for decades while we lose 55,000 manufacturing plants to unfair trade.

God- I comprehend the ying-yang, and positive-negative thing, what is it with you creating obstinate convoluted liberal "adults", who never reach a stage of maturity ?

Oh, wait till I arrive there and...

Fact Check- I don't have a problem with belly fat. I have belly fat, I just don't have a problem with it.
