Detroit to Taxpayers – Cough Up!

America – Send $25 Billion So the UAW Can Fix Our Flat Tire

For these last decades the automobile workers’ union demanded the highest wages, the best health care benefits, and the most rewarding pensions in the country for their members. However, there was little concern about the quality nor the kind of automobiles the union’s workers were building. Now that the Goose that was laying the Golden Eggs has been become emaciated, guess who is being called upon to feed the beastie? The American taxpayer! The Big Three, the UAW Union, and the Michigan Delegation to Washington and all their lobbyists blame you, the American taxpayer for this revolting development.

You greedy and unpatriotic Americans refused to purchase our automobiles. You went out and bought cars from Southern States and Foreign Countries that were manufacturing vehicles without Union help. It is 100% your fault Taxpayer, that our great Detroit is facing bankruptcy. It is fair and just that you bail us out so that we can continue with our health care that is better than yours, our pensions that are more generous than yours and our phenomenal wages.

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman wrote: The blame for this travesty not only belongs to the auto executives, but must be shared equally with the entire Michigan delegation in the House and Senate, virtually all of whom, year after year, voted however the Detroit automakers and unions instructed them to vote. That shielded General Motors, Ford and Chrysler from environmental concerns, mileage concerns and the full impact of global competition that could have forced Detroit to adapt long ago.

Our supposedly capitalist President Bush has already sent $25 billion of the taxpayer’s money to Detroit. Apparently the Michigan lawmakers were insulted by that paltry amount, as Senator Debbie Stabenow said “It seemed like a lot when we first started pushing this. Suddenly, it seems so small.” Now Detroit’s UAW needs another $25 billion but the Democrats cannot get their hands on the loot without Republican votes. Those mean and greedy Republicans are not buying into Obama’s “Spread The Wealth” program. Besides, they know as soon as they vote YES, they will be totally 100% blamed for all that goes wrong, as usual. However, come January, that will change as the incoming Congress and Administration will be all Democats all the time – forever and ever. The “Washington Big Three” will be 100% in charge and can garner 100% of the credit for everything they do.

Still, you have to wonder – why are Michigan Democrat solons screaming that there will be no industry left in America to build tanks and war machinery? Hello Democrats? Aren’t you the anti-war political party? Didn’t we just vote to end wars forever? No more wars need no more tanks!


Hello Vermont?

December 31, 2007

Come visit “Beautiful Vermont” entice the travel posters. Yet if our own President or Vice President of these United States set feet upon the streets of their Brattleboro paradise, Vermonters are ready and willing to slap the cuffs upon them and haul their clothed fannies off to the slammer. If the most powerful people in the nation must shudder with fear to visit such a place; if President Bush and Vice President are in peril in Vermont where they have been threatened with arrest for war crimes, why would any of us lesser mortals of the lower forty-eight travel there for fun and relaxation? We would not – not unless we leave our clothes behind or are as loony as the Vermonters, themselves! We’ll travel elsewhere.

Is our President Bush in danger of imprisonment as a war criminal? Probably not, as he has already served six years in office visiting every state in the Union except … TA DA …. Vermont! He’s no dummy nor is he as loony as the Vermonters. And he’s a whole lot smarter than anyone planning a vacation trip to Vermont.

Vermont has a live-and-let-live tradition, however it applies only to skinny-dipping, nude sunbathing artists, writers and musicians from Boston or New York. Yes, it’s true; Brattleboro is expecting to pass a law this coming March that would make both President Bush and Vice President Cheney immediately subject to arrest and indictment if they dare to visit the southeastern Vermont paradise. Nothing at all about “live and let live” in these warnings: “Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities?”

Let’s see if I have this right. While American soldiers are fighting and dying to protect the right of nudists to freely stroll the byways of Vermont, and to guarantee that contented cows may safely graze and give cream for Vermont’s exports, and to protect their fellow countrymen from being blown up in the middle of the sky, the ungrateful Vermonters are busily drafting indictments against the Commander in Chief of those same soldiers. This is happening in Vermont, while the rest of the nation is in a state of war.

How about you show a bit of respect, Vermont? You may start by finding enough clothing somewhere to cover your too fat fanny.
