Your tax dollars at work to support Japan:
Washington — Nissan Motor Co. said it will begin U.S. production of its all-electric Leaf on Thursday in Tennessee as part of a $1.4 billion government loan.
The Japanese automaker won an Energy Department loan in 2010 to build a battery plant in Smyrna, Tenn., and to retool to build the Leaf at its assembly plant next door.
The Leaf will be built alongside the company's gasoline-powered products.
Nissan says it is the only automaker that manufactures its own electric vehicle batteries, at the biggest lithium-ion automotive battery plant in the United States.
The Leaf's sales have struggled and the automaker failed to double sales in 2012 as it had predicted and instead sold about the same number as in 2011.
Last year, Nissan sold 9,819 Leaf EVs in the United States — up 1.5 percent over 2011.
The Leaf is not the only struggling electric vehicle. Ford Motor Co. sold just 685 Focus EVs in 2012 — its first full year of sales — even though it has built 1,627, according to a report from Ford last week.

Here is a point of view from another forum:
"Americans are arming for war"
Lock and load, friends. The darkest chapter in American history is fast approaching. Meanwhile, Americans are arming up like never before. As the Washington Free Beacon is reporting today, "Folks are grabbing just about any gun they can get their hands on..."
Keep in mind the simple fact that Americans are NOT buying guns just so they can turn them in. Record gun sales everywhere across the country are a sign that Americans are arming for WAR against the radical left.
Over ten million firearms were purchased in December alone, and today there's hardly a gun left on any store shelf anywhere in the country. Ammo inventories have also been wiped out nearly everywhere. Same story with rifle magazines. Bottom line? Over the last 30 days, the American people purchased and took home nearly every handgun, rifle, shotgun, magazine and bullet that was for sale across the entire country.
To repeat: These items were NOT purchased just to turn them in to the government. They were purchased to defend the Republic against anti-American traitors and tyrants. We cannot help but conclude America is headed into civil war if the criminals in Washington actually try to ban guns.
I am sick & tired of hearing you right whiners threatening armed insurrection.

Quit being such chickensh*ts.

Let's just hope that Obama is not foolish enough to move toward gun confiscation, something that could never pass Congress and could only result from usurpation of power.
Ruby Ridge and Waco would look like Sunday School picnics by comparison.
Nothing could be more foolhardy.
Talk about masses messing up the WhiteHouse lawn huh?

Lots of salaried people, such as attorneys and engineers, turn in time sheets in some form so that clients can be billed for their time.
Dumbass Dave doesn't need a time sheet at Walmart, just punch the clock.
They turn in billing. Their pay is salary based.

A time card is a time sheet, dipstick.

I knew that if anyone knew about Walmart pay methods, it would be a career greeter like you.

You know what-alot of those people weren't very "dark skinned" at all, nope, not even close.

Sold my very first car to an immigrant survivor. A little high strung he was, but quite understandable. His mother and sisters did not carry razor blades, and were very sweet people. We were all friends, because there was no rabid war, so we didn't have to "hate" each other- making the world a MUCH better place to be.

And listen stoopido, even when people are "salaried" as in on the job, EVERY day ...SOME of us that weren't even engineers or lawyers, STILL had to turn in time sheets of ACCOUNTABILITY.

No worky, no pay. You think the REAL working world of Jane and Joe Shmoes gets fwee paychecks? You need to pull your head out of the butt of ignorance.

Why we are where we are today:

1999 - Bill Clinton put CRA on steroids pushing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to increase number of sub-prime loans.
1999 - New York Times published an article “Fannie Mae Eases Credit to Aid Mortgage Lending” warning of coming crisis due to lax lending policies of the Clinton administration.
2003 - White House called Fannie and Freddie a “systemic risk” and Bush administration pushed Congress to enact new regulations.
2003 - Rep. Barney Frank said Fannie and Freddie are “not in a crisis,” bashed Republican-sponsored regulation legislation.
2005 - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan voiced warning over F&F accounting, saying,“We are placing the total financial system of the future at a substantial risk.”
2005 - Sen. Charles Schumer said F&F “over the years have done an incredibly good job and are an intrinsic part of making America the best-housed people in the world.”
2006 - Sen. John McCain again called for reform of regulatory structure governing F&F. And again Democrats blocked reform legislation.
2008 - The housing market collapsed.
2008-Present - Democrats blamed the Republicans.
