Unfortunately, some miscreant members of the Union of Ailing Workplaces United Auto Workers who work [cough, cough] at Chrysler’s the Government’s Jefferson North Assembly Plant have taken to toking on the company’s taxpayer’s time.
While taxpayers are footing the bill to keep America’s auto industry off life support, an undercover investigation shows illegal activities by Chrysler employees who have enjoyed nearly $15 billion in government money.
Dozens of autoworkers in Detroit were caught on camera drinking beer and smoking marijuana before heading to work at the Chrysler plant that President Obama praised in a speech just two months ago.
What makes this even funnier sadder is this is the same plant where President Obama stated:
“It’s workers like you that built this country into the greatest economic power the world has ever known.”
“I want all of you to know, I will bet on the American worker any day of the week.” he told the crowd.
“I wish they could see what I’m seeing in this plant and talk to the workers who are here, taking pride in building a world-class vehicle,” Obama said, referring to opponents of the multibillion-dollar government auto bailout. “I don’t think they’d be willing to look you in the eye and say that you were a bad investment.”
Um. Mr. President? We’d like to look them in the eye, but they would probably be too bloodshot and just a bit droopy…
As of today, Chrysler says it has suspended some of the workers. For its part, the UAW says “it strongly opposes the use of alcohol or controlled substances on the job.”
We wonder, will the UAW fight to preserve these members’ jobs?
Mr. President, regarding that “investment:” Can we have our money back, please?

He gave great answers to the ABC News moderators, some of whom spent the night fishing for sound bites that could be used to help the Democrats’ eventual nominee. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES “On abortion, the Democrats are extremists.” Every Republican and conservative in America knows the media’s double standards when it comes to asking hard questions. It was especially evident this week in the difference between the Democrat and Republican debates. And it is the most evident in how the media deal with abortion. Sen. Rubio takes them apart over it. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES What a glum, drab debate. ABC clearly tried to make all the candidates look bad, and the bad blood between the candidates left over from Iowa meant that they just did not care about showing any level of solidarity against the media, as they often do. Christie successfully tore down Marco Rubio for the first hour of the debate, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The New Hampshire debate on ABC was an absolute ****show from start to finish. However, there were a few candidates who came across as ready to lead, and there were candidates who took this debate as merely a placeholder until South Carolina and beyond. The governors on the stage, however, looked like actual grown-ups tonight. Jeb Bush finally wins | Read More »
