That is the next step, Our government will be buying all the union made, over priced, piece of shit cars that the public does not buy at the end of each model year.

The problem is in some of the pension funds which the 70s era management failed to fully fund when they were flush with cash and therefore have to tap current resources to pay for their part of pension and benefits to retirees.

Good news for the Big 2/3, those retirees are dieing off at record rates so the problem is being buried.
I have a friend of a friend who was a monkee once removed who said cars are for carbon foot print idiots.

You are a bigger dip shit than I thought. Our Government knows who is friend or foe?

My advise to you. Stop watching so much Hollywood movies, they are designed to bend reality and work best for those with low IQ.

I really sorry for you. When you think you are better than our government by your sense of judgment. One thing I observed that you cut off your email right around 6:00PM CDT and come back online at 9:00 AM CDT. It was the same in last 2 days. I guess you do not have a PC at home. Next time, watch you back, when you are online, you boss may give you a finger. I guess you get that anyway, otherwise you will not use that so often. This is like you have been abused, so you become abusive too. Proof to me my observation is incorrect and stay online from 6:30 to 9:30 PM in next 3 days so I will answer your wishes, otherwise I will not spend my valuable time for you senseless logic.
In your sense of logic, the lovely black boy, O'bama, should/will fire all chinese works for the government, give the job to the black boy with equivalent IQ as you, then our country will be in the right direction. Right !

It is because I have a life. Unlike you, a troll. Do you even know what a troll is? Google it, Dipshit.

If you are semi intelligent, you could have done an iptrace and see where I log in. And guess what? I telecommute when I am not traveling around the world for work. Stop pretending you know what I do. If you do, you are already a dead man. What a fucking idiot.

Stop making excuses for your obvious fuckups, I answered above to what you wrote and now you want me to post again for your ignorance. It seems to happen to a lot..........You win though, I will stop replying to any of your posts since I do not want to waste my time in replying twice............
