President Bush – the Grinch Who Bailed Out the UAW

Well, fellow truckers, President Bush has just bailed out the union thugs in Detriot.

Yes, your hard earned tax money from making 35 cents per mile is going to make some union worker making $70 per hour very happy.

While we worry about whether or not there will be enough freight to support our families, your tax money will ensure that some union thug keeps his position in the auto industry.  The union workers can retire at 55 with a cushy pension while you, American trucker, are faced with the new year’s licensing fees, higher tolls and other taxation to take money away from your family, can rest easy knowing you are supporting the UAW while wondering if there will be a truck for you to drive next year.

Thanks, President Bush, for ensuring I get to drive this truck until the day I die.

The Captain’s AMERICA Radio Show For Nov. 21st

LISTEN HERE

Join ‘The Captain’ today as he welcomes the ‘Professor Of Politics,’ Kyle Warren, host of The Kyle Warren Show to today’s show…

The dynamic duo discusses the recent Presidential election and all those Obama campaign promises he won’t be able to keep. Will it upset his voter base? Tune in to hear what ‘we’ think will happen…

Then there’s more talk about the Big 3 Auto Bailout which ‘we’ don’t believe will happen. To many emails, letters, phone calls and faxes are hitting the offices of our favorite Congressional Representatives
telling them NOT to give any money to the Big 3. The general consenus of opinion is to have the Big 3 declare ‘bankruptcy’ and start over again…

Then we have the latest news from the DOD in the Global War on Terror and another ‘spotlight’ on a Military Hero in the War on Terror

You’ll also hear the latest Israeli news and more about those continuing rocket attacks in the Gaza Strip coming from Hamas insurgents…

Get in on knowing what others won’t unless they tune in to hear “The Captain’s AMERICA Radio Show,” more stimulating talk at your home of ‘common sense’…

God Bless America!

Let Detroit Go Bankrupt

By MITT ROMNEY

IF General Motors, Ford and Chrysler get the bailout that their chief executives asked for yesterday, you can kiss the American automotive industry goodbye. It won’t go overnight, but its demise will be virtually guaranteed.

Without that bailout, Detroit will need to drastically restructure itself. With it, the automakers will stay the course — the suicidal course of declining market shares, insurmountable labor and retiree burdens, technology atrophy, product inferiority and never-ending job losses. Detroit needs a turnaround, not a check.

I love cars, American cars. I was born in Detroit, the son of an auto chief executive. In 1954, my dad, George Romney, was tapped to run American Motors when its president suddenly died. The company itself was on life support — banks were threatening to deal it a death blow. The stock collapsed. I watched Dad work to turn the company around — and years later at business school, they were still talking about it. From the lessons of that turnaround, and from my own experiences, I have several prescriptions for Detroit’s automakers.  More here

On G-20 and GM: Economics, Politics and Social Stability

By George Friedman – from Stratfor.com

The G-20 met last Saturday. Afterward, the group issued a meaningless statement and decided to meet again in March 2009, or perhaps later. Clearly, the urgency of October is gone. First, the perception of imminent collapse is past. Politicians are superb seismographs for detecting impending disaster, and these politicians did not act as if they were running out of time. Second, the United States will have a new president in March, and nothing can be done until he defines his policy.

Given the sense in Europe that this financial crisis marked the end of U.S. economic supremacy, it is ironic that the Europeans are waiting on the Americans. One would think they would be using their newfound ascendancy to define the new international system. But the fact is that for all the shouting, little has changed in the international order. The crisis has receded sufficiently that nothing more needs to be done immediately beyond “cooperation,” and nothing can be done until the United States defines what will be done. We feel that our view that the international system received fatal blows Aug. 8, when Russia and Georgia went to war, and Oct. 11, when the G-7 meeting ended without a single integrated solution, remains unchallenged. Now, it is every country for itself.
