Fiat who has a majority share in Chrysler has plants all over the world.But the Jeep is the trademark vehicle of the Detroit Auto and isn't going anywhere. Plus the ad gave the impression basically the companies were saved simply so they could outsource all their labor to foreign countries.That simply isn't true.They have added a lot of job and dollars into the economy and have plans to continue pumping more in. Every auto company these days uses plans here and there It is why cars now have to list where each part comes from as some cars built domestically have more foreign parts and vice versa. But to me it was a clear attempt to smear and misrepresent two companies we need as we rebuild the economy only because by smearing them he could lessen the impact of Obama's involvement in the bailout being considered successful.<quoted text>
So I ask you; what are the factories for if not for production?
While loading at the Baltimore docks this past summer I got to see first hand what is known as a RO-RO or Roll On-Roll Off megaship designed especially for wheeled vehicles. Massive comes to mind ...
I also find it interesting, many that call themselves Christian ...have taken a bold stance against abortion ...yet when it comes to employment ...these same Christians are prepared to throw the unborn under the bus (pun intended). Many I also find are in favor of gay marriage, and prepared to vote for those that favor both.
It would appear the Christians are divided on the issues of abortion and gay marriage especially when following Christian doctrine stands in the way of finding employment/remaining employed.
Please understand, I'm not judging. I'm simply stating what I see thru my eyes ...others may see differently.
Basically, slam auto slams the bailout which slams Obama. I know you follow but just simplifying. There is just too much at stake but even if there wasn't he tried to make GM and Chrysler look bad just to get at Obama and gave an overall impression that simply wasn't true. If candidates wants to take one small little piece of an overall picture and blow it out of proportion to try to make each other look bad that is one thing. Making two companies struggling to get back on top that are so important to the economy and millions upon millions of jobs either directly or indirectly, that is just something a president can't do IMO
As far as abortion I have worked for right-to-life my entire life and have ten foster sisters.I also know Roe vs Wade is never getting reverses and that practically it would probably cause more problems than it would solve as it would not be enforceable and our efforts are better spent on prevention, education, better adoption, better foster homes, better services for single mothers, waiting periods, etc. I personally think it is a sham or flat out ignorant for people to (not saying you are) to make elections one issue campaigns and especially about an issue that is not even into play.Plus the states can set their own laws.
As for gay marriage I think they have every right to.There is a big difference between freedom of religion and legislating morality and you can't criminalize religious beliefs.If we wanted marriage to remain ours we should never have attached secular rights to it.So those that call ourselves Christians also are Americans and aren't naive nor hypocritical.We don't pretend we are standing behind a religious principle when really protecting our own pocketbook.We call it like we see it and we know just because something is right for us doesn't mean we can force it on someone else.
