Just like that damn AIG bunch.
In the words of one of the brighter liberal weenies, Arriana Huffington, "Well, the jets were going there anyway."
You don't expect these men to fly commercial like the regular people do you? Heaven forbid!The next thing you know you will be expecting them to lower their salary from the $ 40 - 50 million a year to only maybe $ 1 million. How will they ever survive on such a paltry sum!They could go without this bailout if only the UAW would step in and agree to concessions. They are the main reason that the car companies are in this situation with all of the ridiculous demands that they make and the high salaries that they force the companies to pay. Unions were good about 100 years ago when working conditions were so dangerous, but now they seem like they are nothing but a way to extort money from the companies to pay employees exorbitant salaries and make it where the companies can't get rid of bad employees.
Isn't that a crockThese companies do not deserve to be bailed out !Let us go back to riding horses
That riding horses business is out. PETA would never stand for it.
Drill here, drill now. forever cheap gas would put them right back in business.
I say no more bail-outs for the "Big Three" or any other companies. Taxpayers are footing enough bills already and our voiced opposition to these plans have gone unheeded. We deserve some favorable treatment, not these Wall street and Detroit-frickin Michigan types.
overheard on the private plane... one CEO to another..."I wanna know whar da gold at!"lol... this is just crazy. And to the poster throwing UAW under the bus.... +1
The union members arent the one wasting money, it is the CEO's.Before you bash a UAW worker, try working their job for a day. Most of you would be so sore from the assembly line you'd cry to moma!
I say get rid of all the unions.law enforcementutilitycommunicationseducatorsfirefightersauto makerstrades(electricians,carpenters,plummers)transportationcoal minersAFL&CIOOCAW(Oil,Chemical and Atomic Workers...(fuel production fellas)UAW:(which consists of)United Auto WorkersUnited Agricultural WorkersUnited Aerospace WorkersJust to name a few....other "outdated" unions......To Earnest and Honcho......get realIf you want the $1.00 a day life style move to Mexico or China. They don't have unions.
Had a freind working on the assembly line at G.M., what a joke. His job was to install those small, side windows in cars. His goal was eight a day, he was finished by noon, sat in a chair and read a book for the next four hours and still continued to get paid and people wonder what the problem is? Give me a break! Dump the Union wages and they may be able to achieve a come back. And don't give me that crap about "standing on an assembly line". Go dig a ditch in a 105 degree heat then let's talk about more money, good benefits and what it's like to work a real job. And just like on the assembly line, you don't have to be edjumicated. This countries problem is the fact it has been ran like a union would run it and now look where we are.
Hey 5:55..... "To Earnest and Honcho......get real"It was tongue in cheek.

does anyone know how much money the uaw give to dems in congress. thats why they will bail them out. if not now, when obama gets in.
not sure how much money UAW gave Obama....but....'CNN Headline News did a short news listing regarding Ford and GM's contributions to the relief and recovery efforts in New York and Washington. The findings are as follows..... 1. Ford- $1 million to American Red Cross matching employee contributions of the same number plus 10 Excursions to NY Fire Dept. The company also offered ER response team services and office space to displaced government employees. 2. GM- $1 million to American Red Cross matching employee contributions of the same number and a fleet of vans, suv's, and trucks. 3. Daimler Chrysler- $10 million to support of the children and victims of the Sept. 11 attack. 4. Harley Davidson motor cycles- $1 million and 30 new motorcycles to the New York Police Dept. 5. Volkswagen-Employees and management created a Sept 11 Foundation, funded initial with $2 million, for the assistance of the children and victims of the WTC. 6. Hyundai- $300,000 to the American Red Cross. 7. Audi-Nothing. 8. BMW-Nothing. 9. Daewoo- Nothing. 10. Fiat-Nothing. 11. Honda- Nothing despite boasting of second best sales month ever in August 2001 12. I suzu- Nothing. 13. Mitsubishi-Nothing. 14. Nissan-Nothing. 15. Porsche-Nothing. Press release with condolences via the Porsche website. 16. Subaru- Nothing. 17. Suzuki- Nothing. 18. Toyota-Nothing despite claims of high sales in July and August 2001. Condolences posted on the website. Whenever the time may be for you to purchase or lease a new vehicle, keep this information in mind. You might want to g ive more consideration to a car manufactured by an American-owned and / or American based company. Apart from Hyundai and Volkswagen, the foreign car companies contributed nothing at all to the citizens of the United States. It's OK for these companies to take money out of this country, but it is apparently not acceptable to return some in a time of crisis. Buy you foriegn imports and then ask yourself why all our money is going overseas. Some will argue..."Well, they're made in America".....BY UNION MEMBERS.When we stop building cars and producing fuel..then what?
How can anyone stay in business if you pay retired workers 90% of thier wages till death. This is not retirement.
no body pays 90%.I have one of the best retirements in the metroplex and I only get $60.00 per accrued year. If I work here 50 years, I'll get $3,000. a month before taxes. 50 years!!!!!If I work here 25 years...you do the math.Get real.
