    Default Will ya buy one ??

    So GM said its gonna have the Chinese build some 100,000 + cars, will ya buy one ???

    How does that make you feel that more work is being farmed out??

    Does it make you feel good knowing these could be built by Americans??

    When does it stop that we keep fueling third world countries (india, china, pakistan, etc) with work that should be accomplished here in America??

    just wondering...............

    No, and I think that makes Ford look so much better. It might be a way to pay back the debt we have with China.

    I wonder if they are going to be produced for sale here or only there. But either way, not a chance.

    It will stop when we do 2 things. First we need to get rid of all the libs in congress that want to keep taxing the crap out of our business's to pay for all thier worthless social programs. We are supposed to be the leaders of the world in the free market yet we tax our business's more than any other country. But this will never happen the way congress is spending money like drunken sailors.

    Second. Until we put unions in thier place we will never be able to produce a product at a reasonable price. we pay highschool dropouts like they are doctors to do work you could train a monkey to do. Sorry but paying some idiot 50,60,70+ dollars an hour to put 6 plugs together as the car goes by on the assemly line is a joke. Hell if McDonalds used the union way your meal deal would cost $25.00.

    See how much people pay attention. They announced that they were going to shut down some of the plants here and ramp up production in thier China plant's to import back to the U.S. They said this even before we gave them all that money. We actually gave them the money to move to China. They are trying to get away from having to keep paying employes money that don't even work for them any more. By eliminating jobs here and moving them there they get away from the pensions.

    Funny how just about everyone thinks it's BS that congressmen keep getting thier full salaries after they are out of congress but it's just fine for the unions.

    Nope. Until GM pays back every dollar of bailout money plus the required return, I will not even set foot on a GM lot.

    Same goes for Chrysler.

    Isn't this just good market based capitalism?... Build it cheapest with the level of quality that the consumer will buy the most units and return a profit to the shareholder? Or are we saying that we only partipate in the global markets only when US union labor is removed and replace with non-union USA based labor... I am confused, if moving operations overseas busts up the unions and returns GM to profitability and repays the govt isnt that what we want as investors... Good thing all my cars are pretty new (and american made)... Becuase if only buy a Ford it would be supporting the UAW and ... well let me know what you decide...

    what we want to do is keep our American work force employed, union or not, what we want is to see our American companies expand in America, and yes make profits that benefit the ceo all the way down to the janitor that keeps the place clean.
    What we want to see is American families working hard, buying U.S. High Quality !! products, able to save money, able to buy and pay for whatever they can afford, able to RETIRE FROM A COMPANY WITH BENEFITS THAT WE EARNED !!!, If other countries want to live the American dream, great, but not at OUR expense !!!
    Does that clear that up at bit, oh and i'll still pay for that DCB OR Cigarette to be made right here in the good ol U.S.A., union or not.

    I'm with you. Sucks because I don't even like Fords....never have. Always liked the body styles of Chevys better. But taking gov't handouts and allowing nobama to dictate to them is more than I can stomach.
    Ford, standing on it's own 2 feet, has earned a lot of respect.
    To be honest though, I can't stand the thought of buying any car that's gonna put money in the pockets of UAW. If I need a full-size truck I'll bite the bullet and go Ford. Anything else and it's Toyota or Honda for me. FUQQ THE UAW!
