    Meh.

    I get most of my hummers from Chinese women at the local "Massage" parlor as as it is.


    Edit: I guess its kind of odd to think of them paying for hummers when they normally get paid for them.

    Frankly I don't think Hummer is that big a prize. They had become glorified Sububans anyhow.

    Hummers will have quality issues like all other Chinese products.

And finally could barely fit in a normal street lane. What exatcly was there to be proud about?

    I'm sure everyone here will agree that to be proud of something it has to actually have some redeeming quality about it to upset all it's faults. What kind of redeeming quality did the hummer have? It failed because it was pandering to that greedy American consumerism and it's creators completely failed to factor in the normal drops in the economy.

    I mean if you were a weapons maker would you be proud of a gun line which is shown as impractical to the everyday consumer? I'm sure there's a ton of gun owners that want to buy tanks but really - what are you supposed to do with a tank when you need extensive military training to drive it and operate it's weapons correctly?

    As far as I'm concerned the Chinese can have the Hummer line. Let them try to navigate a car that the average height Asian man will probably have trouble getting into.
    They didn't buy the brand to sell Hummers to the "Asian man " who "will probably have trouble getting into" it.

    Let me know when that turns a profit instead of a loss.

    Also, the whole "your not a patriot, if your not buying American", is a little on the side.
    The big three made their deal with the UAW in terms of a manufacturere buying a commodity and that commodity was labor. Did labor act overreach at tie ? Yes. Did the Big 3 let them ? Yes.

    I'm not phased by China getting Hummer, I'd be more worried about all the other products people are buying.
    I would like to buy all American but that is not possible as you well know. I have been ticked off about all those products being imported from foreign countries long before anyone else worried about.

    I was concerned that we have lost classes of industries. We "invented" the microwave oven - AMANA RADAR - was the brand name of the first one. We lost that entire industry. We lost the TV manufacturing and all of electronics.
    Yes we made the Mcintosh sterio for a while but that was a micro-mini market.

    We just kept losing entire classes of industries. The connection to the Chinese for losing our manufacyuring was statrted by Bush senior. I am not being partisan here because Bubba Liffic just stepped right along where Papa Bush left off.

    We are heading to second a 2nd world country like the old former European powers. The next step is 3rd world.

    At some point we'll have to stop calling them commies.

    And at some point they may start using that name on us.


    What China is developing oward is state owned/sttae controlled capitalism. You are partially correct in that with baleouts and buy ins and price supports we are taking on elements of state controlled capitalism.

    The Chinese have cheap natural resources it's called workers.

    So as I understand this, GM got rid of an unprofitable line, but without costing any jobs in the US. Sounds like a win win situation.
