Obama Seeks Final Death Blow to Auto Industry

    President Obama is trotting out yet another policy aimed at forcing American’s to change our ways and embrace the green.  Just a few weeks ago, the administration floated the idea of adding yet more taxes to our already overtaxed cars to serve the dual purpose of shoring up revenues as well as curbing driving habits (which one would assume can’t both be accomplished simultaneously, but | Read More »

I love how Democrats coin there words. Free | Read More »

    Democrats Save Bankers But Sweaty Union Workers Hang

    It seems odd that the Democrats, the party of Unions and the Working People, are so quick to bail out banks while they are willing to let the automakers hang out to dry.  The automakers embody everything good and bad about union labor in this country.  Why force them to cut back and eliminate contracts when banks do not have to?  Then it came to | Read More »

    My Big 3 solution, save the Big 3; let Michigan die.

    I’m sure many here would prefer to see the US auto industry succeed, for pride, patriotism, security and jobs. Many have also seen that many foreign car makers are building cars in the US, so it can be done. I am also sure many Americans prefer American cars over foreign for many reasons and that will continue. As many may or may not know, US | Read More »

    Auto Bailout Bill; I Really Want To See Obama Squirm On This

    Sorry Bambi. The auto bailout is going to be all yours. It looks like your actually going to have to a make a tough decision. One that actually upsets people. I know you’ve never had to do that before. You’ll survive. I like the way you and your supporters have embraced the “new tone”, but you can’t fool us. We all know that you just | Read More »

    My Proposal to Save the US Auto Industry – Libs won’t like it.

    I will start with my credentials, and also with my biases. I have been in the auto industry since 1982, and have worked my way from selling cars up to owning 2 domestic dealerships. I also have a financial services company which has every type of franchise as a client. Should the big “3” go away, I could easily replace them with a Japanese counterpart. | Read More »

    Everyone is not too big to fail.

    Popping those bubbles didn’t work. Recessions are recessions. Like a very strict diet for the morbidly obese, they hurt. The consequences of not having them are as destructive as not removing last Thanksgiving’s extra ten pounds and adding to those pounds each and every year. AIG – to big to fail. Freddie Mac – too big to fail. Fannie Mae – too big to fail. | Read More »
