We could be exporting those vehicles and make some cash. Cooperate America is just simply greedy. Instead of making a comfortable profit they want it all and have a HUGE Margin.


Ford’s July U.S. Sales Rise; GM, Honda Post Declines

Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Ford Motor Co.’s July U.S. sales rose 2.3 percent, leading the way as the government’s so-called cash- for-clunkers incentive may have helped the auto industry to its strongest pace this year.

Other major automakers reported declines, including 19 percent for General Motors Co., 25 percent for Nissan Motor Co., 17 percent for Honda Motor Co. and 9.4 percent for Chrysler Group LLC.


That is right. Corporations do not have allegiance to America, they only care about the bottom line. They want to maximize profits and if that means eliminating American jobs for cheap labor in China then so be it. They do not care about the people, they care about making money.

Now if there was incentives like tax credits to keep jobs in the country maybe they would be interested in saving American jobs.

Oh...

But But But...

We cant even do that now becuase we are so far in debt that we need every single tax penny we can get to pay back our loans. Thanks to even more greed that created this latest mess in the first place.

The people in Washington know exactly what they are doing. Their doing it for their own monetary gain , They don't care one bit for their peasants . That would be the common working American person . Just like what was it about 8 years ago when they started commercials on t.v. about how you can borrow money or my favorite is cash for gold . Well that's because the U.S. Treasury has none . It's all in China . That is when it all started . Now I'm not saying all people are stupid . But stupidity pays the White Collar the most so for education , They want to eliminate it all to gather . Two tear system . Just call me a slave . I'm blue collar and what will fire you up even more is that I refuse to vote for any of these lying peaces of fecal mater , As far as I'm concerned there are way to many lawyers in this country , But Ancient Roman Law makers would be proud , Give them sex drugs " Pull the wool over their eyes " So what distractions dose the government give you .

God Bless China

Their the one's with all are job's
My cloths , all of it ,made in china
Why is that ?
Who's fault is it ?
Who's game is this ?
Dose anyone know how much we spend ( America Tax Payers )
on weapons of mass destruction ?
Correct me if I'm wrong but couldn't we spending that on health care , schools , Education needs , ect.
But who am I to say . I'm to poor to make up my mind , DUH .
Ramble on

I think I'm moving to Canadian . At least they take care of their citizens .
Free Health care . Wait did I just say that . France too . No . England ,The scourge of the middle ages gives their citizens FREE HEALTH CARE , they must be Communist , Right . Government controlled Agency . So the F.B.I. is a Communist party , Right , DUH there goes my mind again . What about The U.S. Postal Service

Well as I have said, much worse than this is coming.

Rockefeller made it very clear that China was his model society.

This has been planned and worked on for decades.

If your christian leaders are filmed dancing around an owl
in the woods, there is good odds they are not christians.

Tape recording of a human screaming in anguish for the
mock human sacrifice to add realism ???

I have made numerous replies to many articles and if you
go back and read them you will get a good idea just how
bad it is going to get here.

They wrote "Limits to Growth", "Ecoscience", and the Georgia Guidestones.

They are Bilderberg, CFR, Trilateral Commission, and others.

Ted Turner talks about what is coming in public, and ppl just
make fun of him, but he is one of them.

They know the public are over 90% asleep so they take great
humor is putting it out in public for all of us to read in their books
and their new Stonehenge.

They know most ppl do not read anymore.

Go to google video and watch "9/11 press for truth"

Go to google video and watch "Wake Up Call"

Go to google video and watch "1984"

Go to google video and watch "Brave New World"

Obama is just one of many marionettes since the times of JFK.

He is part of the show, but not the director or producer.

Now that Obama and crew is being so blatant it won't be long til we
see them all go into one of the "continuity of government" tunnels.

Like mount weather, but there are others, not openly known,
the 60+ tunnel boring machines have been busy.

They are trying to trigger a reaction out of the fringe groups
so they can be hauled off for as he put in "prolonged detention"

So like I have said, the ppl pulling the strings are not on TV.

It is likely too late to do anything about it, your best bet is to
disappear into the wilderness once it goes berserk.

If you are feeling like dying heroically knock yourself out,
I am gonna be out of sight, and out of mind listening to my
crank powered radio in the forest.

Call me a coward, I do not care, I have done my part over
the years and I am sitting this one out.

Until you realize they are playing the secular groups off against
each other via the left right paradigm, you will be constantly
bickering until you wake up in their Brave New World by surprise.

Divide and Conquer indeed.

Good Luck to you all !

Part of it will be for money, but now it is mostly for power and control
and furthering agenda 21 as mentioned in Holdren's Ecoscience.

Agenda 21



my favorite is cash for gold . Well that's because the U.S. Treasury has none . It's all in China .


It is not all in China, ppl have been buying gold a fair bit here in the US.

But just like in 1933 they will try a FDR style gold seizure is my bet.

They get everyone to buy a shiny metal instead of things to save
their friends and family, then they devalue it and seize it just
like they did in 1933. It is true most ppl did nto turn it in, but
we will likely see them come door to door to all those who bought
their gold via electronic traceable transactions.

The ppl that bought gold as just paper will found the paper
certificates were over sold and they do not have the gold
to back up the paper sales.

You best bet is to make caches of things that will help you and
those you care about to survive something on par with the great
depression.

All the industry is being shipped offshore or they bring in
68 different types of Visa workers to replace US workers.

List of the 68 types of Visas that are being used improperly



Ancient Roman Law makers would be proud , Give them sex drugs "
Pull the wool over their eyes " So what distractions dose the
government give you.


Funny you mention Rome, we have Fasces symbols in the Senate
and elsewhere.

Fasces Symbols in the United States

Law wise we are moving into some more like Lex Fori.

Moving will not save you from what is coming.

North American Union - World Government is almost complete

As I said most ppl do not even know what is coming, and the ultimate
plan is why Mr. Pianka got a standing ovation.

UT of Austin professor calls for 90% of humans to be killed by engineered Ebola

A lot of ppl in Germany did not believe when they were told about
the death camps, so the troops dragged them there to show them
the dead and dying and made them help bury them.

The ppl that made the Georgia Guidestones and paid $50,000 to
have it done 29 years ago MEANT what they said.

Ignore them at your peril.

Good Luck to you all !

Star and Flag that you are paying attention Slayer.

I wish I could get you to see the true depth of what is coming,
but I admit it is hard to believe what I have been saying.

As for the small problem that GM is, compared to some of the giant
ones, this was a VERY simple plan.

They are making two separate GMs an international one with no
unions, no US laws, no EPA, no OSHA, no debt load, etc etc.

In China all the dissident prison labor will be making your car,
and in India and Russia.

China is the model society per Rockefeller, keep that in mind.

The GM here in the US will be the dead man walking, a mere skeleton
setup to collapse in totality once all the operation is offshored.

All planned, years ago, and as I alluded to above, much worse
is yet to come for the T-bills, Bonds, The Dollar, 100's of banks,
and ....

Hyper Inflation Nation - part 1 of 3

Prepare accordingly ....

Good Luck to you all !

GM May Need More U.S. Job Cuts as Buyouts Fall Short

Aug. 3 (Bloomberg) -- General Motors Co. may have to cut more U.S. hourly jobs after an offer of buyouts and early retirements fell about 7,500 workers short of the reorganized automaker’s target.

The possibility of layoffs was disclosed today by Sherrie Childers Arb, a spokeswoman, in an interview after GM announced that more than 6,000 United Auto Workers members, or 11 percent of the hourly workforce, left the company on Aug. 1.

Ford the biggest winner in the 'Cash for Clunkers' program

Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) is the only U.S. car company left standing that hasn't succumbed to government aid or taken a path through bankruptcy. But, in a way, it has found a little help from the U.S. government recently, as it posted the first monthly sales gain since 2007 on the back of the "Cash for Clunkers" trade-in program that worked so well, the initial billion dollars for the program is already exhausted.

It took about a week for consumers to plow through rebates up to $4,500 from the government and to swipe almost the entire $1 billion from the program. There was so much demand that the program was feverishly being planned to be extended with new government money. Ford alone saw a 2.4% increase over last year. $2 billion more was approved for the program by Congress, so will Ford continue to see gains with the new money? August could end up being larger than July, yes?

I vote for "The People's Democratic Republic of Obamanation". We can call it the "PDRO", pronounced "Pedro", for short. It "occupies" the same territory as the NAU. A wholly owned subsidiary of China.



-gods, I'm depressed. Is it too early to start drinking yet? For that matter, will Obama buy me a new liver with his plan? Or am I going on a list?-


Never too early to start drinking. NEVER. Obama WILL buy you a new liver (harvested from a Chinese convict, probably in one of the soon to be filled Chinese internment camps, probably in Boston), but you will have to wait your turn on the list, below a Canadian who had to come to the former US for medical treatment because of HIS low position on the list.

In all seriousness, I'm all for GM moving it's entire operation to China. ALL of it. We have enough cutthroats here that will sell their own mothers into prostitution already. Good riddance to all that want to go away. GM can carry ALL of itself to China, and make room for an innovator that wants to produce something that an American wants to buy. They can take their labor unions with 'em.

I'm all for outlawing GM, and calling in all their debts. That'll teach 'em to bite that hand that feeds.

One small bright spot in all of this mess.



Top 10 Cash for Clunkers cars

Where made: United States

When it came to Cash for Clunkers, Ford benefited from its past sins. Ford says the vehicle most often traded in was its popular Explorer SUV, the very vehicle that kicked off the SUV craze in the 1990s.

No doubt many of those Explorer owners remained loyal Ford customers. That is likely one of the reasons the Focus is the most purchased car under the program, according to government data.
