You Maniacs......




"You Maniacs!!!!
You Blew It....
God Damn You...
GOD DAMN You To HELL!!!!!!

Yep, General Motors FINALLY did it!!!
The GM as we knew it since 1908...
IS NO MORE!!!
Oh they say 'Business as usual'. But you know, I'm not so sure.
The only difference supposedly, is that the current GM stock is now only worth .79 cents to the unfortunate few that didn't sell months or years ago..
That stock can no longer be traded, only cashed in.
Now the "New GM" will have to answer to their new bosses...The Feds!
The "New GM", is sort of a Mutant Evolution of the old corporation.
Lets hope "these" Mutants fare a little better than the ones in Beneath The Planet of The Apes...If my memory serves me right...They Blew It AGAIN!!!

As Of Today....GM stands for GOVERNMENT MOTORS!!!

Peace...!!!

Oh, yeah, they blew it big-time. As much as they might want to believe it, I don't see how it can remain "business as usual." A change is gonna come. Big-time.:(

I'm feeling a little shell shocked myself. My realtor just lost her house..good people.
I think it would be easier if not so many people felt like we had it coming.

I am of the mind that this whole past year was just a set up for this, reduce the value for them who held shares, cut the pensions and benefits of them who worked diligently for decades and continuously close and re-align factories for overseas production.

Fuck them! I will never buy anything this "new company" produces. And fuck all of them of the middle class who say it was what was deserved. We gave our soul to these God damned companies and in return we wound up in hell.

Look as long as I dont wake up to find the statue of liberty buried on the beach, I could give a rats butt about car companies and what happens to them.

Although, I do care about you.
I hope your job will be ok.

Have a great day!

Typical Empire... Started with hopes, dreams, and vision. Had innovative, hard working people. Got successful, got complacent...ingnored Demming, who went to Japan and became a manufacturing icon. Gave away consessions to the Union, as profits were obscene. Stopped leading, became second class producers of new products.. Didn't listen to the marketplace. Woke up, and it was too late... I sold steel to these people- they went from calling the shots, to hanging on. I hope some other U.S. manufacturers wake up before it's too late!

What a shock and so sad. :(

I have to wonder if anyone saw it coming? Like Enron, there must have been those that knew things were in trouble. Were they too big to move swiftly and avoid doom?

Unemployment in my state is at 12% and that's just for those who still are able to get benefits because they haven't run out. One in ten people. And I'm one of them....

well don't sugar coat it on our account. Yes I know what you are feeling and this too shall pass. hopefully something good will come of it.

Sweetie ... while I'm sorry for the little guys on the floor who build and sell the product and make parts for the product ... GM watched Honda and Toyota come up with inexpensive hybrid technology that works, watched other companies lead the way and didn't follow suit.

"Everyone is promoted to the level of incompetency."

Unfortunately a lot of people create their own downward spiral. Events like these are the reason I'm cross-training out of the automotive/manufacturing/logistics industry (and hoping like hell I can get hired on at the AFB before my unemployment runs out).

It sucks dry with teeth, braces and the felony for statutory G-daddy, hang in there.
