I dont think you can keep the politics out of this one Pa,...
"Proof is the treasonist profits made at our expense ! Not just ours either. At the expense of a nations heart, from infrastructure decay, state and local tax hikes, economic ruin, on and on and on..... "
Can I ramble?
anyone here knows who/what Guide Lamp was. My grandpa worked there, my dad worked there...Anderson Indiana (home to me) used to be one of the largest GM factory towns in the good ole US.
We had Guide Lamp and Delco employing thousands of people.
I sat w/ my pops yesterday in a bar across the street from the factory he worked in for sooo many years. We watched as an auction was going on for all the remaining "stuff" inside the plant where those popular tail light lenses were made. It was a strange feeling.
I think the figures for GM factory employment were close to 40,000 here at one time (at its peak). Now, I doubt if there are 100 people employed by the various names GM has branched into. (Delphi, DRA, Guide Corp.)
Couple miles east of here- Muncie Indiana, Borg-Warner has announced they will be closing as well.
Looking north, in Kokomo Indiana, the Chrysler Corp. has also started the same process....
All these jobs moved out of the country- to make autos and parts to be sold right back to us.
*I know that there were a lot of molds and parts made for military production here too, ... makes me wonder where our current military vehicle parts and manufacturing have went
I know Indiana has something to do w/ making Hum-Vs.
Pa- I couldnt agree more. "Until big oil is prohibited from controling earths peoples by their acts of placing pertinent officials into pertinent offices where their placements spin the rules and laws to keep big oil running things, nothing will change. "
- I cant imagine how much 'big oil' depends on the BIG 3(GM,Ford,Chrysler), but I know how much America depended on them.
One would think these companies had a moral obligation to keeping americans employed. Now I read about E85 fuel plants poping up all over America. Seems we need those farmers after all.
I remember reading about a party in Boston a few years ago, when some Americans had enough balls to stand up for something they believed in.
We should all know what that turned into and why.
sorry this has nothing to do with the original post, but in reading I felt inspired. Sorry Pa. remove or delete as you see fit.
now.... I will shut my trap and learn more about how new fuels are going to power our old engines.
