Are you apologizing for what you INFERRED, and you are wrong, so what you said was cr@p, you did you misuse infer and mean you IMPLIED that all the car manufacturer's ills were the fault of the union, which is also cr@p, since as I have pointed out three times: union workers did not make the MANAGEMENT decisions.
MANAGEMENT made the MANAGEMENT decisions- big cars, rotten fuel efficiencies, fighting fleet gas requirements.
I didn't realize just how anal you were until now.
Go back and read my post, if you read it at all.
Someone on this thread blamed the 'blacks' for the fall of Detroit.
I argued there were other factors and that the unions were one of the factors. If you can find an economist who stated that the unions had nothing to do with the collapse of the auto industry in America, then I will apologize but no, I'm not sorry for listing the reasons I feel Detroit has failed, but, I am a little tired from having to retype the same things over and over again because you are OCD or anal or just like to argue for the sake of argument.

Why don't you continue beating this dead horse by yourself? Seems your voice is the only one you listen to anyway. lmao

Bill Gates never graduated from college; neither did Zuckerberg.

A college degree isn't a guarantee of a higher income, I know personally people with degrees who worked in an auto plant because they got more money putting on bumpers then using their degrees.

Plumbers aren't typically college educated.

When's the last time you hired a plumber?

Unions were a factor for the growth of Detroit.

You blamed failures of US car manufacturers on the unions.

Yet you hold the people who made the actual decisions on these failures blameless.

Unions fought for their members to improve work conditions and get higher pay. That is their purpose: they would not exist if the owners of companies dealt with their workers fairly.

Have you heard of the forty hour work week?

Actually, you put up a long list of things that you insist were failures caused by the unions- a long list of cr@p, I might add- so it isn't like you mentioned (erroneously) and parenthetically that they were one of the causes of the bankruptcy of Detroit.

And don't lecture me about wandering from the topic here HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH! this thread is supposed to be about Perry... I am responding to your off topic post.

Oh, but those people in the hospital, yeah, they still have a job and probably always will.
People will continue to die, and people with college degrees will continue to make sub par wages emptying bedpans.

And people will continue to buy cars and if people aren't making the cars, they will be making the robots that make the cars.

Your point?

Auto industry poised for big hiring spree

The auto industry is about to go on a hiring spree as car makers and parts suppliers race to find engineers, technicians and factory workers to build the next generation of vehicles.

The new employees will be part of a larger, busier workforce. From coast to coast, the industry is in top gear. Factories are operating at about 95% of capacity, and many are already running three shifts. As a result, some auto and parts companies are doing something they've been reluctant to consider since the recession: Adding floor space and spending millions of dollars on new equipment.

"We're really bumping up against the edge," says Michael Robinet, managing director of IHS Automotive, which forecasts auto production. "So it really is brick-and-mortar time."

The auto industry's stepped-up hiring will help sustain the nation's job growth and help fuel consumer spending. On Friday, the government said U.S. employers added 175,000 jobs in May, roughly the monthly average for the past year and a sign of the economy's resilience.

At 7.6%, U.S. unemployment remains well above the 5% to 6% typical of a healthy economy. Growth is still modest, in part because of higher taxes and government spending cuts that kicked in this year and weak overseas economies. But the housing market is strengthening, and U.S. consumer confidence has reached a five-year high.

The auto industry's outlook is bright. Vehicle sales for 2013 could reach 15.5 million, the highest in six years. To meet that demand, automakers must find more people. Hundreds of companies that make parts for automakers have to hire, too, just to keep up.

The two wars, the two recessions, and taking a budget surplus and turning it around into a deficit is Bush's fault.

Based on lies that Cheney et al. told.

Those WMDs that he insisted they had, a connection to Al Qaeda that was a complete lie, etc.

Still: they are his wars, and he paid for them by putting them on the charge card and passing the debt off onto the next president.

Hence: the massive debt.

The democrats who stood up and questioned Dick and Bush about the RIDICULOUS Iraq invasion were immediately called "Traitors" "Un-American" and then monkeyboybush even went so far as to say "you're either with us or agin us" whatever the fuck agin means......fricken hillbilly bastards. Then those two cowards WHO NEVER SAW COMBAT, sent 6,000 US soldiers to their deaths.

How patriotic of the republitards, Dick and Bush.

Yea, it's the Democrat's fault for believing the Republican lies.

Of course, the Republicans voted for the wars, too, and of course... it was George Bush's idea, coming just before the election.

You don't fit the mold of the typical tea bagger, you are even fatter the the average Wal*Mart shopper but not quite as smart.

So you would be oozing out the side of the mold.

PS: The average Democrat is smarter than the average Republican, and the average kumquat is smarter than the average tea bagger.

Wipe your chin, dear, and let me know when you can figure out a better response to your Ivy Leaguer comment, since George was twice graduated Ivy Leaguer.

Yeah let's, better then the pro-amnesty un-Americans we got now. Who are these uneducated you speak of in the House? Are they the ones trying to stop amnesty ? Obamacare?
Speaking of uneducated lets talk about those smart dems, Hank Johnson, Nancy Pelosi, Sheila Jackson Lee, Harry Reid, Bobby Rush, just to name a few.

See foolish person I won't defend Bush and Cheney because I really don't care much for those two, but you and your ilk will defend the liberals no matter the circumstances, Obamanites like yourself believe everything you are told by your democrat liberal leaders, they lead you by the nose and use you like a wet wash cloth.
