<quoted text> What middle class? You have the uber wealthy and the working poor.
Then how much of the "uber wealthy" will want to be navigating in a Ford F-150 or Escape?

If wages keep going done and all we have for jobs is in the services field we will no longer be able to afford those nice Fodd PUs. will we. And as the wealthy keep offshoring theirselves to avoid paying taxes they will be driving foreign cars imported from Mexico or China. Besides alot of those Fords are imported from Mexico. My Impala was made and imported from Canada. I just read the label the other day. In the ne=xt 2 or 3 years we will be importing cars from china, thats the future. That is if we canafford that new import from china on our wages. China is now the second largest encomy in the world, it just past up Japan. We are next in a couple of years. Buy Chinese.

Now I am reading that the chinese have come to TEXAS and bought up natural gas leases in south TEXAS for drilling gas . Want be long and the chinese will be selling us our own natural gas back and gaining the technology of drilling. Pretty soon they will own the whole state of TEXAS. or close to it. We are buying all our green energy sorces such as solar and wind generatig wind mills from china now and importing it to ourcountry. So all we are doing is the erecting and installation of that energy source. they are amking the big bucks by manufacturing and sellling it to us. We are now a courtry of service providers. Manufacturing has gone to china. By the way that ford plant will probably be in Mexico in a short period of time. EXPORTED. And the american tax payer will pay to export the plant to Mexico.

Because of the gravitational speedup for uphill clocks, an observer moving between two events can achieve a larger proper time by shifting his worldline upward in the middle. Going too far upward requires moving so fast that time dilation due to motion reduces the proper time more than the gravitational speedup, so there is an optimum curvature to the worldline that maximizes the proper time.

Looks as if the UAW is a little higher up the food chain than the State employees.

Good point, it might be well advised as well to remember that Nakajima Aircraft Company, which later became Fuji Sangyo Co, Ltd later becoming Subaru, manufactured the engines and aircraft that facilitated the December 7th 1941 attack on our Naval base at Pearl Harbor.
Wow! I didn't know about that, thanks for the history lesson!
By looking at those cheesy Subaru commercials on tv, you'd think they were as clean as th driven snow! Now I know who has been driving! "You never forget your first Subaru (attack)" apparently America has.
