    They keep screwing the pooch, and it may be a possibility.

    Or, perhaps, the cars are better designed by the company before they even get to the assembly line.

    Some Republicans lost. Romney, for example.
    Some Republicans won. The House of Representatives remains under Republican control.
    Many states are now in Republican hands. If liberty and freedom are maintained it will occur in those states under Republican control.

    What, in your opinion, is the problem with high earners keeping that which is theirs? Do you have a moral argument for why you have a greater right to their wealth than they do?

    It's clear that some American workers do a better job than other American workers. Is it only conicidence that the better performance comes in RTW states, where competence is allowed to trump seniority?

    How is that clear when we're comparing vehicles built in RTW states vs ones built in Canada? Are Canadian workers also members of the UAW?
    and, even if they are, how do we know there is a cause and effect relationship here? It still seems to me that the basic design of Hondas and Toyotas are, overall, superior to that of most of the Government Motors products.

    WTF does this post have to do with the post that you quoted?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I don't claim a cause and effect relationship. I merely wonder whether or not it can be summarily dismissed as mere coincidence.
