    lets see…..the auto workers union…get laid off and draw 90% of your pay for two years while NOT working…doesn’t look like that and other outrageous union benefits helped Detroit. That’s why autos cost more than many houses!

    Let’s see…..use ignorant right wing meme to explain a complex problem that took about 50 years to happen. Tea brains (a term used in its loosest definition) are happy.

    I worked for the UAW in Detroit for 8 years. They are a greedy evil bunch. Nothing else to say.

    The idea that there can or should be equality in America is a fantasy, and it’s about time Americans learn that not all people in America can expect a decent life, a home, a car, an education, or vacations. The natural order of things is a society based on a class system: the owners and the workers, which is the only way an economy can function. It’s been that way in all of history and in all other countries. The moment the lower class workers try to squeeze the owners for a wage that raises them above poverty, the whole system goes broke and falls apart. For America to survive, the working class must give up its useless dreams of equality and learn their place at the bottom of the economic pyramid.

    Yes, equal outcomes are a Marxist fantasy that will never be fulfilled. Capitalism is the way to go!

    And, herewith, through the kindness and genius of NeoconMan and DFG999, you have, IN REALITY, the ACTUAL heart, soul, and fundamental political principles of the Right-wingnut, reactionary, regressive, racist Republican party, as such will form its Platform for Elections in 2014 and 2016.


    Now, all True, Genuine, Pure, Red, White, and Blue Americans can get on the band wagon; and together, they can turn this Nation around, and move it backwards, all the way to the 17th Century – the Republican Party’s TRUE GOAL for the future!

    It was the false hope that the coffers would always be full lead to this. And the lifetime politicians that are too old to realize times have changed.

    @Ansonia,
    And, you have no facts with which to establish your position either. Merely parroting the buzzwords and phrases of the Right-wingnuts might well be called “bird-brained”, as a perfectly accurate description.

    Actually, unions built Detroit.

    When Jap cars began to appear in the worker’s parking lot, the corporation should have taken note.

    The population went from 2 million to about 600,000.

    Obviously the tax revenue left with those people looking for work when imports were eating the auto industry’s lunch.

    Why? Because they continued to make cars Americans didn’t want. Thankfully the auto industry has learned that lesson but, too late for Detroit.

    Yeah, unions caused all of this…

    Someone once described General Motors as a Health Insurance Provider that made cars as a sideline…

    Never any management in Detroit, was there? Never any capital? Never any creative intelligence? Just the Doom of people working together in Union? What the hell’s a corporation but a Union?

    Grow some eyes, people. The Glen Gold Rush Standard ‘News’ Fox is eating your pathetic lunch.

    And have you considered the crooks and incompetent management? And the car companies wouldn’t have gone where they did if management had paid attention to the market. Don’t blame it on the workers, they didn’t get to make the decisions and don’t now that the “dictator” Orr is in town.
