Liberals instinctively resort to parsing, evasion and misdirection whenever they have no answers to a simple question. Come on Mars, give it a try... You can do it! We know you can...
So true. They want to use every means in the book to over complicate things and then pull out what doesn't present as "Apples to Apples" and say it is inconsequential.
That to me says they do not understand the basics of capitalism.
Lesson one yoohoos, you sell a product for more than what it costs. That equals profit.
When you say that the cost of the product does not include money that you have to pay to make it (i.e. retirement contributions, job banks, etc.) the money is still coming from somewhere!
All of these supposedly educated people on this forum should understand that. Apparently they do not.
Job Banks may have been a good idea at some time in the past but I do not see Toyota, Nissan, Honda, Volkswagon, Mercedes, etc. having these issues. They are able to idle the plant for a week or two and that seems to stanch the flow of blood for them.
Oh and by the way, wasn't it Marsden who said that Auto manufacturing shouldn't be going on in a 1st world country?
