Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

You've more than proven you're ineptness in the economic field.
I'll ignore your lack of understanding.
But you might look to Henry Ford, who paid his workers on the Model T line $5 Dollars a day, in a time when that was a very high wage for labor. His contemporaries attacked him for giving too much pay.
But Ford knew that if his Model T was going to be a success, it had to be available to the common man. He virtually created the idea that became the basis for our consumre based economy.
If people don't make a living wage, they can't consume as much. How may cars were sold when only the rich could afford their Dusenbergs, Cords, Packards?? Not that many.
But Ford sold cars by the millions,unthinkable of at the time!! He created the America you grew up in.
the best economic time for America was post WWII. Wages were high, the economy was cooking, consumption was at a peak. You were a child of that era. But you don't get it.
The CEO of COSTCO sees it. But he's an educated man. You, not so much.
The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927. WWII ended in 1945. Next!

but i've been a very different poster for few weeks now.
I recognize that. More like a few months, isn't it?

And, to be fair, you used that line in an illustrative manner.

I do express my opinions forcefully, and I do enjoy toying with those I've come to know. Mea culpa.

Flake has great taste in music, so I'll forgive him the rest. But he's kind of futuristic for someone who seems to believe our economy is on the verge of collapse. The two visions don't fit. But he don't like to talk about it.

I'm not here much, so bear with me. No offense intended. Just words.

Henry Ford gave his cars away so the workers would give him back their wages plus interest!!! Do you really think he did it out of the goodness of his heart? Costco is using the oldest trick in the book. Appearing to be on the side of people to lure them into their stores.
In a market-based economy, minimum wages are set by Adam Smith's unseen hand: competition in the labor market. If Costco wants to drive up their labor costs to attract customers and/or better quality labor, so be it. But if Costco finds itself high-and-dry for making stupid moves, again, so be it.

But for Craig Jelinek to come out supporting the Jerk-In-Chief's political ploy, that is wrong. If he ficks up his company, fine, but if he drags every business in America into the same hole he is digging for Costco, that is wrong. Question: what does Craig Jelinek stand to gain from sucking on the Boy Messiah's doorknob?

Look for a smelly fish on this one.

You're hopeless. The Model T begat the Model A, the Model B, the Model 48, etc.

Point is, Ford, followed by the creation of auto unions of the 1930's, establised good wages, which made workers better consumers. In steel, rubber, coal, etc. After the War, it all came together, as workers had the highest relative wages of the postwar era. The reason our economy failed is that average wages went down, after inflation.

All due to people like Reagan, who began the wealth transfer to the already wealthy. When the biggest retailer in America has it's employees on Medicaid and Foodstamps because they don't make enough in salary is why the economy collapsed, something is very wrong.

And you don't get it. No surprise there.

"There's nothing surer,
the rich get rich and the poor get poorer,
in the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun!"

True then, true now.

Well then who in the hell is paying for those Ford commercials I see on TV every night?

To make your embarrassment even worse, the guy wrote "The Model T was manufactured between 1908 and 1927."

Note: "...*between* 1908 and 1927."

You open your defecated trap with "And EVERYBODY knows that the were no Fords built *after* 1927"

Note: "...built after 1927".

Who shows you which end of the bottle to drink from?

Bush knew exactly what the CIA and the UN knew. He knew exactly what the Democrats knew before they became weasels.

The Democrats lied to you about being lied to.

There was no illegal surveillance of the public.

DUH. Nobody does anything out of the goodness of their heart. If you noticed, the auto loan industry is alive and well. Ford again set the pace, creating a new banking opportunity.

Isn't the purpose of Costco's business to lure them into their stores??

Do you believe in capitalism or not?? You don't make sense.
