    So you'd support more government (aka tax-payer) spending?

    I believe that is 1350 GM workers, and does not count suppliers. I work for a tier 1 supplier, and got my call today telling me to come back to work Monday finally.
    Congratulations on getting back to work!

    Right now, for you, it's a recovery....paycheck in hand is a recovery pretty much by definition. Having been unemployed myself a time or two....I know what getting a paycheck again feels like. So don't let anything I've said take away from that bit of good feeling--Lord knows you have it coming.

    Just keep a weather eye open for when that might change again. (you know, that whole forewarned forearmed bit).

    We were told a month is almost guaranteed, anything beyond that is a bonus.

    OP by Redress thanked by Ethereal, Joe1991, RightinNYC

    The point is missed. It will remain missed after me pointing to it.

    There are 3 choices.
    1. GM makes such great cars that they become the main if not only demand of cash for clunkers traders. (Then how did GM go bankrupt?)
    2. The OP is another bogus propaganda of Obama worshippers.
    3. Yahoo news does not belong to BN but is approved when it is liked by RightinNYC and Co.




    yahoo answer:

    GM is not a private company anymore, it is a government corporation (google ''fascism''). Reality has no bearing on its actions. Lies coming out from it are granted to be not only lies, but also most absurd lies.

    Congratulations, that was one of the silliest posts I have seen in awhile. I especially like the "3 choices", which are unrelated and untrue. Just for the hell of it, I will actually look at your 3 choices...this wont take long.

    1: why is it not possible that GM becomes more receptive to the marketplace and succeeds? Why do they have to build the best? And how would they do all that in the time CARS runs? Your choice is totally nonsensical.

    2: You are denying that GM is calling workers back to work? I sources my claim that they are, can you source that they are not. If they are calling workers back, the OP is just a statement of fact, and some slightly good news. Do you always do this overblown hysterics routine?

    3: Yahoo is carrying a Reuters news story, same as they carry AP news stories. That fact is mentioned in the OP. Paying attention will keep you from looking so totally stupid in the future.

    It is all possible. It is all good. How does GM become more receptive all over suddenly, - new models? What is that? How does Ford fall all way behind? What % of the trade was GM? Have you noticed my promise that you were going to miss the point? What % of the trade was GM? What % of the trade was GM? What % of the trade was GM? Were those new models? Were those new models? Were those new models? Or the same models condemned to be bad by Obama? Or the same models condemned to be bad by Obama? Or the same models condemned to be bad by Obama?

    Point to me where GM is calling workers back to work in you OP. Point to me where I ever deny GM is calling 1350 workers back to work in my post.

    Yet, you have posted only Yahoo link. Point to me the post with the link to Reuters or AP .

    I can pay whatever, it does not change the fact that Obama worshipers will call me so totally stupid, just because of the fact that I donít worship Obama.
