josepp BS: On Bullshit (63* d) RE: BS: On Bullshit 30 Jun 11


////Love it until we go down the tubes econmically.////

Already happened years ago. What planet have you been on?

////I bought a Ford. Yer welcome.////

All you paid for was a name. What you bought was Japanese parts.

///Sell yer soul for a few bucks while yer at it?////

Sorry, not a Christian--don't care.

////Tomorrow, we Canucks wave the LEAF. On July 4, Yanks wave the STARS & STRIPES. You wave the finger when you buy a Toyota and say you will not buy anything else./////

Best thing for the Big 3. They need competition. It was lack of competition that put them in the mess they've been in since the 70s. The Japanese didn't hurt them. The Germans didn't hurt them. They hurt themselves and are still doing it. when Japan stabilizes and gets back in the game, as they are already doing, you will see this supposed growth spurt was an illusion. And if the Big 3 can't compete then fuck em. No sympathy from me. We Americans are supposed to be the greatest competitors in the world and all we do is whine about Japanese cars kicking our ass. We never stop to think that there's a reason that's happening, we're too busy demanding $25 an hour for some asshole who sweeps the floor all day and empties the trash.

////I will never buy a Toyota. Yer welcome.////

You already are and have been for years. If you really want to know what working for any of the Big 3 is like come to Detroit. I worked for Ford for 8 years. My current coworker worked for Chrysler most of his adult life. Why did he stop? He got tired of lying to customers as a matter of policy. And watch how they treat loyal employees. Selling off their parts divisions which then relocate to another city forcing trained professionals with homes and fmailies to drive over 100 miles one way to get to work. Bosses who tell you with a smirk that by January, nobody in your department will have a job. A huge corporation that tells a small-time supplier to build them a machine, hand them the buleprints and when the company builds it as specified then tell them that it's all wrong and demand the machinery for free knowing the struggling supplier can do nothing but give in. Another of them telling protesting workers that they won't close their plant as planned after all and then move it to another country instead--but they didn't close it. Everything I just told actually happaned and it happens on a constant basis and has been for years. They have absolutely NO LOYALTY TO YOU OR ME. Consequently, I am VERY PROUD to say I have ABSOLUTELY NONE towards them. In their words, "We are not an American corporation, we are global corporation." Until Americans stop buying their shit and then they accuse them of being unpatriotic. I've had a bellyful of them and brainwashed sheep like you.
