Times are going to get real bad. If you don't have a gun/guns, then get one/some. Once the government fails us all here and the millions + of jobs vanish it wont matter who the big 3 are if only 1 out of every 337 people have a sustainable J.O.B. and are NOT on welfare and food stamps ect.. No one will be able to purchase a new car or truck. The ripple effect will be bigger than anyone can fathom. Crime and theft will be the new way of life for many people. Within a short period of time it will be like Katrina without the hurricane. Scary shit! And all of you that work for the big 3 or its suppliers I hope this all works out quickly and securely.

That's because you found a loophole, asked me what I thought you should change it to, then caused much excitement.

The fact that he states the "other" auto industry sells more cars in the US, which in fact they do not.

The fact that they build better products, which 10-15 years ago may have been true, today it is not.

The fact that the "other" auto industry he is talking about isn't headquartered in the country.

Fucking idiot.

I will probably not lose my job because I work for a commercial truck supplier. My job has already been affected by all OT being cut, which was only a few hours a month anyways.

Granted there is a personal stake and a family stake in all of this which does make me biased.

Regardless, not supporting American manufacturing and industry is just not good no matter how you cut it.

The fact that the "other" auto industry he is talking about isn't headquartered in the country. Didn't matter they aren't head quartered here. They still supply jobs to the people that live here. That was the point being made.

Fucking idiot.
