The American Sniper: An American Tragedy

Saw the American Sniper last weekend. Sat through another Clint Eastwood version of America. Thought the movie a tragic mistake of American misadventure. Too many average Americans were destroyed by those who profited and had no sacrifice. I watched the movie through the eyes of an Iraqi. If it were an foreign invasion in this country and we were defending our country from foreign invaders the Iraqis would look like patriot heros.

A new report shows that the wealthy are giving only 4.6% of their salaries to charity, compared to 16.6% of those earning $25,000 or less. The least generous? Those who make $500,000 to a few million a year

Fiat Clown Car coming to Toledo?

Joe the plumber out at jeep?

It appears Samuel Wuzelbacher and Toledo Jeep may have parted ways. The public Joe the Plumber has been seen stumping for Republicans last week in Lewiston Idaho. Rumors have it the outspoken Joe has allegedly moved on to other things after working as a Jeep Temporary Part Time employee for about 9 months. Some of the Jeep TPPs were working up to 50 hours a week, not bad for temporary work. But the life of a production worker especially at the most efficient American auto plant can become a grueling grind that only those with a strongest constitution can withstand.

Keep Jeep in Toledo!

CEO Sergio Marchionne made the statement at the Paris car show that Fiat is making plans to make a new unibody independently suspended ALUMINUM bodied Wrangler. Now if that's not enough to scare the bejebus out of the four wheel drive market Sergio continued to say it may not be built in Toledo. HOLY SHIT!
