The results of opening the progressive Pandora’s box of “governmental intervention” are finally becoming clear to those who both have and those who have had their hats in their hands seeking “assistance”. The collectivist caliphate led by BHO/FDR/LBJ has “forced out” the “evil businessman” at the helm of General Motors. This is the logical regression when capitalism is supplanted by socialism. They know what is best for everyone, just ask any of them.
Two articles relative to all of the “totalitarian total takeovers”, “GM CEO Wagner forced out as part of government plan” and “White House questions viability of GM, Chrysler” both contain bushel baskets of Bolshevik baloney wrapped in the atypical Obama obfuscation.
The fellow travelers of the left, who for the last several months and even up to this day, have avoided things like “details” relative to the “price tag” of their detail-less “plan” now insist on “to the penny” details from the auto makers. “Standards” which the automakers will inevitably fall short of, necessitating the liberal “rescue”. The “timetable” and “exit plan” fascist fabricators, when cornered themselves, quickly skulk back to their “move the goalposts” Marxism. Thus the importance of redirecting the “populist anger” away from the liberals responsible for all of this and onto the “victims” of the overall economic meltdown.
I wonder if the “details” have been “discussed” amongst the Obama goons as to what might happen if and when the auto makers overwhelmingly union workforce ends up “forced out” of work due to the relentless “demands” of their candidate? Thinking towards 2010, I “hope” that they haven’t..
Repeatedly, Obama keeps demanding that the business world provide him with that which he and his brown shirts have refused to supply to the American public. Again, this is another Demokratic diversion from the REAL problem: the after effects of the phony Clinton/Frank economic “planning” and the faux economic boom of the nineties, and I do mean “boom”..
Obama said that the auto industry should be “realistically designed to weather this storm”. Is the Obama “I’ll print more, inflation be damned, collectivists are your friends” imbecility “realistically designed to weather this storm”? Better yet, is there any “design” at all beyond rote collectivism?
The necessity and the expediency of “diversion” began to gain amperage because “Obama advisors saw public outrage come to a head in recent weeks as populist anger escalated over bonuses paid to AIG executives. They realized Americans are frustrated with the economy and its BUSINESS LEADERS.” (Caps are mine.) The left is responsible for nearly every fascist facet of this crisis, yet “business leaders” must be made to take the fall. The absolute need to divert attention from the liberal perpetrators (perpi-traitors… nice.) always produces voluntary or involuntary scapegoats. Just ask Susan McDougall.
In as few words as possible, our economy “collapsed” based upon the “demands” made by the nineties lecherous liberal that loans be made solely on the basis of “fairness” as opposed to monetary viability. The Demokratic domino effect therefore reaches every element in both society and business, which has been their goal for nearly fifty years. The “too big to fail” auto industry is the last vestige of the type of manufacturing that made this nation great. Soon in deference to the “world economy” China, which manufactures virtually everything else in your now government owned and controlled home, (Turn your lights off, hateful!!!) will end up manufacturing your car as well..
GM and Chrysler employ over 140,000 union workers here in America. Do they have the courage to make the liberals pay for their “restructuring”? This “rescue” is supposed to help, why did the Dow lose 254.16 points or 3.3% of its TOTAL value and why did GM lose 25.41% of its stock value today if this “intervention” is so magnificent? Anyone want to buy a Toyota?
In lock step predictability, we hear, “aides note that Obama inherited the auto mess from his predecessor..” Didn’t the Demokratic House and Senate notice anything amiss? It’s just another diversion. In 2007, GM reached an agreement with the UAW that put the retiree health care costs into the hands of a “union-run trust”. You might be stunned to learn that that “trust” is about twenty million in the hole.. Call this a foreshadowing of the Obama “rescue” of the nation’s “health care crisis”..
How much effect could a Republican President have over the UAW and the liberal Congress? The UAW has placed their votes, endorsements and contributions into the collectivist camp for decades now and the liberal “Nader wanna-bees” have been running a bogus environmental interference for about that long as well. George Bush was as responsible for this as he was for the explosives that he placed both inside of the Twin Towers and at the base of the levees in the Ninth Ward..
GM’s CEO Rick Wagner became the sacrificial liberal lamb after his November appearance before those actually responsible for the economic meltdown. “Outrage” flared over “flying to Washington in a corporate jet and offering vague, rambling answers to their questions..”
Later on we hear that the Obama administration “plans to send a team to Detroit to help with that restructuring”. How will the “team” get to Detroit? Rickshas? Peanut powered Yugos? Crisco guzzling Corollas? A conga line of progressive Prius’? “..vague, rambling answers”? Obama himself could have served as Wagner’s interpreter as he has “vague rambling answers” and contiguous “uhs” under a progressive patent and copyright.
As Obama schemes to destroy our manufacturing base, keep in mind that our ability to re-tool our plants after December 1941 aided in our response to this attack. When the Obama/Clinton caliphate (remember, the Secretary of Statists has just returned from China..) succeeds in having China manufacture everything, how will we be able to respond to the next attack that the liberals are enabling and endorsing? That is not even taking into account the dismantling of our military that invariably takes place whenever the hammer and sickle crowd takes “control”.
The idea of telling you (demanding) how many taxes that you will pay is never enough for the megalomaniacal Marxists. They want to tell you what car to buy and they even want to “control” the warranties “in an effort to boost consumer confidence”.. They want all of the banks. They want all of the lending institutions.
If I may paraphrase Orwell, welcome to Obama’s “Cowardly New World” which is the inevitable consequence of transforming the Oval Office into Red Square..
