Re: A time to be American - GM Trucks

Who to support? If I'm buying a Nissian I help out my fellow Mississippian. I know some people think yeah but the Japanese owns Nissian. Doesn't a German company on Dodge? I like Dodge trucks, but the last one I bought came from Mexico. I think the last Chevy truck my dad bought came from Canada. Nothing seems to be made in America anymore. I hate it, but you will see me standing in line at the local Wal-mart. I use to always look for the made in America stickers in Wal-mart . I haven't seen them lately on items. Maybe I don't look! Shame on me for that, but you wouldn't get much if that's all you looked for.

Leupold scopes aren't even made here anymore. I've been considering buying a Sightron SIII is that a bad thing? I am a proud member of the Teamsters Local 891. When I buy a new full sized truck it will be one of the big 3. I could keep talking about this for hours, but time doesn't permit.

I agree, I think Ford could be the real winner in this, but only if the other two guys don't keep dipping their hands in the till. This is one reason the market is in such bad shape these days. Why invest in Ford (F), if their competitors are getting help from the Gov't? It really puts Ford at a huge disadvantage.

Re: A time to be American - GM Trucks

AJ said it all.

If the auto makers failed to change with the times, they will become extinct.

As it should be.

Let a more progressive and profitable company take their place.

The writing was on the wall 5 years ago, and management failed to change direction, Just another example of CEO's who fail at their jobs but get a 50 mil bonus. In the meantime the auto worker ant suffers.

Thanks to our politicians we can all suffer as they spread the burden of failure to all tax payers, via stimulus.

The SOBs

Re: A time to be American - GM Trucks

Just curious as to where does one buy all these American made vehicles? My Dodge 3500 pickup was built in mexico, my last chevy pickup was built in Canada so how do I find a truck built in America unless they are referring to North and South America…. I do believe my two Jeep Wranglers where built in Ohio. My Pontiac was built here in the USA but had a motor that was built in mexico don’t know on all the running gear.

Re: A time to be American - GM Trucks

Unless the proud union members are willing to negotiate a fare wage for what they do, they can be proud of their membership all the way to the bread line. The only way the big 3 will prosper is in the free market. If it continues in the direction that it is currently going you can thank the unions, and the socialist Government officials equally for the down fall of our great country. The Government and the unions are perfect examples of inefficiency and waste. They hold back talent and reward mediocrity. Government employees and union employees are both the biggest bunch of malcontent cry babies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Hope I didn't sugar coat that too much.

Steve
