    Management destroyed the auto industry by giving in to UAW perpetual health care and luxury pension demands. This was just kicking the can down the road to be dealt with in the future.

    UAW leaders were busily killing the goose that laid the golden eggs for a couple decades, culminating in ridiculous crap like full pay for "being available" (while fishing at the cottage, etc) for work if needed. While I don't know firsthand I would wager incompetence was rarely dealt with.

    Like Pogo Possum said, "we have met the enemy and he is us".

    Was to be expected, read history.

    Why does history repeat its self? Because WE fail to learn from it!

    This if used by Romney, should just about guarantee the election to him.

    What a great commercial, makes Solyndra look like a pussy cat.

    What was it that Obama said about corporations that take jobs offshore? But this doesn't count, after all it's Obama's baby and the jobs are going to a communist country.

    A successful parasite does not kill the host.

    The UAW forgot that lesson.

    Let's hope those who bought stock after GM stabbed their bondholders in the back and took their welfare money and went to China get exactly what they deserve. The stock price is down nearly 25% in the last year. Karma 101.

    I was in the union at one time. It does protect the workers from bad management and co. Yes it does force the co to pay the workers a proper wage. They kept the co from working the workers to death and from being fired for no reason.

    The unions now are cutting their own throats by forcing the co to over paying the workers. To pay some guy $75.00 to put lug nuts on a car is a bit high. To tell the co that the worker will only make X number of parts per shift is not right. If he does make that number say in 6 hours he is to sit down and read a book or what ever till his shift is over.

    By not working with the co on a middle ground the co are closing shop and going else where. Who looses? The workers and towns they were in.

    Unfortunately, Roger is right. Many unions went beyond seeking fair compensation, decent and safe working conditions, and decent fringes and retirement for their members and morphed into nothing short of pure greed, total antagonism, and a vehicle to cover up incompetence and sloth. Plus the establishment of a political power geared towards supporting those who could allow them to rob their employers blind. Some unions even resort to violence, kidnapping, vandalism and sabotage to force employers into dealing with them.

    Are there decent unions out there? Of course there are. Not all unions can be lumped in with the above description. Pity so many bad apples ruin the handful of good ones in the basket.

    Don't worry, Obama will get you card-check and finally, all your worries will be solved.



    Now vote early, and vote often, all you stooges out there. After all: the Republicans want to kill you!

    Here is the perfect example of MY experience as a former Union member!!!

    You can't make this stuff up!! YOU can't defend a union!
