GM President Fines Competitor Toyota

General Motors President Barack Obama will fine his competitor Toyota a whopping $16 Million dollars.  It's good to be the king!

The announcement was made by loyal Liberal Democrat and Grand High Lord Minister of The People's Roads and Transport, Ray LaHood.

What do you expect from a greedy, power-hungry man? Of course, he is going to fine Toyota! And does he give a rats-rear-end about all the people he is going in the process? No.

Recent Toyotas are beset with some of the worst manufacturing defects, design flaws and sloppy production. Yet even though dozens of Americans have died because of these flaws, you attack Obama? It's incredible when America-Loving Patriots can support an anti-American business over companies founded in this Nation...

Now, I can understand why a pampered, never done a days worth of labor Republican like Willard Mitt Romney hates GM and Ford after all Romney happily gave Toyota a reach around when he penned his magnificent Op-Ed Let Detroit Go Bankrupt, writing:
Ford, for example, needs to cut $2,000 worth of features and quality out of its Taurus to compete with Toyota’s Avalon. Of course the Avalon feels like a better product...

Romney further blamed the American worker for not dying quickly enough for Romney's tastes;
First, their huge disadvantage in costs relative to foreign brands must be eliminated. That means new labor agreements to align pay and benefits to match those of workers at competitors like BMW, Honda, Nissan and Toyota. Furthermore, retiree benefits must be reduced.

Romney wants American workers to make less and die quickly after their working years have been used up. He gleefully hoped for the destruction of Detroit and the elimination of jobs and retiree benefits. Of course, Romney's is the child of a Politician and "worked" as a politician himself so he doesn't need to worry about where his benefits come from...

Romney, like All Republicans hates America and American Citizens. Romney is Evil, a Coward, a Chicken Hawk, and a Kleptocrat. I.E. the perfect Republican.

Anti-American business? Toyota employs tens of thousands of Americans, and unlike Chrysler and GM, it has not reached into the taxpayers pockets.

It's also not going bankrupt, so I'd say it does America much more good than the liberal phony crapitalists who have run Chrysler and GM into the ground.

Actually, I am a Ford man and will continue to be. I will never buy a GM or Chrysler product. They deserve to go bankrupt.

A simple search would highlight Toyota's economic woes which far exceed all the American owned Car Companies.

Toyota lost $1.7 Billion in 2008 and lost $6.9 Billion(!!!) in the first quarter of 2009.

And yes Toyota employs Americans at crappy wages with little benefits, but fuck those workers they don't deserve better.

But this is why Republicans hate GM and the workers they employ:

Unions, like the UAW, help Americans, Republicans are against everything which helps extend the lives of the poor and middle class in America. Foreign Auto Makers, especially with automotive plants in the South are allowed to pay cut throat wages and disbar unions while receiving US Government Subsidies and tax incentives to treat American workers unfairly.

Republican Richard Shelby of Alabama ensured Mercedes -Benz received $253 Million USC, Honda $158 Million USC and Hyundai $234 million USC tax breaks for building plants in in his state, Republican scum Bob Cooker gave Volkswagon $577 million USC for a factory in Tennessee and "Mississippi paid $284 million for a new Toyota plant; Kia got $324 million from Georgia. Texas had to fork over only $133 million for Toyota's Tundra plant in San Antonio, while Tennessee gave $197.6 million so Nissan would move its American headquarters to Nashville."

Republicans use the power of the Government and these tax "breaks" to break and destroy the UAW which doesn't vote for Punk Ass Bitch Republicans.

Toyota's woes are coincident with GM president Obama attacking them in the news. hmmm...

If unions are as great as you say, Illinois and Michigan should be leading the nation economically. Instead, they resemble bankrupt, economically devastated third-world toilets.

Note that the politicians you mention are using STATE money to bring businesses there, not federal dollars.

Union pensions are bankrupting state and local governments all over the nation. Open your eyes and look at the full story, not just Morons Spewing Nothing But Crap propaganda.

I thought there was something funny about your numbers, Gene, and I was right.

You're peddling old news.

Here's an update:

Guardian-Toyota Returns to profits.

Meanwhile, Government Motors continues to flush our tax dollars down the toilet. At least Toyota was losing its own money.

Dude, I don't know why you let assholes like @Grungy_Jeans hang around. He clearly hasn't the intellect to spend any time here, if he thinks you and your readers support Mitt Romney. Obviously, he's a plant from Organizing for America. The thing to do with losers like him is ... gluggluggglugglug ... flush him down the toilet.

Grung_e_Gene said...

Seriously Fiddle? Feigning ignorance doesn't become you. 2010 is now 2008 and 1st Quarter 2009 are not now. so my numbers are fine. and they also happen to be before President Obama did any action against them. Don't lie you're better than that!

An Snarky Son of a Whore, boo-hoo, if you don't like my posts stab your eyes out so you don't have to read them.

Silverfiddle said...

Incoherent nonsense: "2010 is now 2008 and 1st Quarter 2009 are not now"

When I responded to you I thought you were talking about now, so it's true, Obama had not yet used the power to the state to attack them. They suffered losses like every company did back in 2008.

You avoid my larger point, which is the US owns GM now, and is using the power of the feral government to go after competitors, with the obamatards in the media playing along.

Meanwhile GM has had at least two

recalls involving millions of vehicles for the slight problem that the engines catch fire

You are a partisan worshiper, Gene.
Keep goose-stepping to Obama's tune. You're doing a heckuva job, Grungy!

All I can say is that the poor has never given me ANYTHING or offered me a job EVER. so yes fuck the poor aka lazy. praise the rich aka wealthy for giving us hard working americans jobs! This is the land of the free where dreams come true but it takes hard work not just joining a union. unions are destroying our country.

Actually don't censor people like Grung_e_Gene. It's interesting to see how some Americans enjoy it when the gov sticks it in their butts and pass their finger under their nose...smell it that shyt but refuse to admit the damage the current admin is doing to our country. GrungeGene is a plant, just like Obama.

Silverfiddle said...

Anon #2. Kinda a gross analogy, but you're right.

I don't censor anyone here. Unlike "liberals" I believe in freedom of expression. I want liberals to keep talking. The more America hears, the more they dislike it.
