    25. Here's what they're "thinking"
    One Freeper post:
    "I have a brief message for the United Auto Workers:

    You bought your LAST American presidency."

    Another one:
    "UAW can finally stop buying the democrats"


    There you have it...they'd rather see the country go down the toilet, than give up their partisanship.
    Pot, I would like to introduce you to Kettle.

    The UAW, management, Congress, whoever anyone wants to blame aside, this is really bad for not just my state, but the whole midwest.


    I'm pretty sure Bush is still going to give the Big 3 a bailout of some sort.

    He said if this doesn't pass he will tap some money from the 700 billion bailout package already passed. Which I find absurd.

    Regardless of the actual union members, the unions themselves support and have always supported Dimocrat (re Socialist) politicians.

    Until they quit doing such, they can all rot in hell.

    It's kind of ironic how the DUmp is in a frenzy about this. Wasn't it a month ago where they were screaming "let them fail" when it came to the financial institutions? Weren't they foaming at the mouth because of that bailout? The financial institutes that were failing could have collapsed our economy if we let them fail. The Big 3 wont cause a blip on the radar and these idiots are swinging from the rafters with rage because we wont give them 14 billion dollars with no strings attached.


    They are the dumbest group of people I have ever seen in my life.

    Beck had a point this AM

    The libs were going ape over the war, saying that Bush did not have the authority to enter us into a war. Where in the constitution is the authority of the executive branch to give loans to private business? Yet we do not hear a peep from them about this

    As someone from Detroit and Michigan, I'm sick of the idiots complaining about a bailout. They were against it until they realized that a lot of people in power would like to use a bailout as a way to break the UAW. Now, they are for it.

    I am a UAW member, although not an autoworker, but I have always been distrustful of them. I have had some good stewards, but I had one who ended up getting fired for sleeping with a client, and others who are just stupid. I agree with them on some issues, but not on others. I buy american cars, though.

    The duers stood by and cheered when Pelosi stripped Dingell of his chairmanship-I'm sorry, but you do not treat the longest-serving member of your party so shabbily, and replace him with an idiot like Waxman.

    I'm personally for a bailout, but not an unconditional one. I think Ford will survive without one, but the other two are doomed without one. Mullaley is at least making moves that insure Ford has some ready cash at hand. Ford will make it to January 20th, and GM can't say that. Chrysler is doomed no matter what-no one wants to buy them or their crappy cars. Even Iacocca has given up on them.

    The way I see it the UAW has two options here. Accept a paycut now and keep your job or refuse to accept the deal and take a 100% pay cut when you lose your jobs because you didn't get a bailout. They are picking the wrong time and the wrong people to try and strong arm.

    You pretty much summed it up, noonwitch.

    These are fellow Americans who are facing catastrophe and I don't think anyone should be happy or even indifferent about that. Unions have their misfits but so do religions and political parties. We can't just say 'well my politics are different from theirs so let 'em die'.

    Their politics are different than mine, so fuck 'em and the horses they rode in on.
