Chrysler profits dive on lower shipments

DETROIT Chrysler says its first-quarter net profit fell 65 percent as it shipped fewer older vehicles in preparation for several key product launches. The company earned $166 million in the January-March quarter, compared with $473 million a year ago. Revenue fell 6 percent to $15.4 billion. Toyota still No. 1, but race tightening GM: New Corvette Stingray to start around $52,000 Chrysler says vehicle shipments fell 6 percent to 574,000. That's mainly because it ended production of the Jeep Liberty midsize SUV last year. Chrysler is preparing a Toledo, Ohio, factory to make the Jeep Cherokee, which will replace the Liberty later this year. Launches of the 2014 Grand Cherokee and 2013 Ram Heavy Duty trucks also cut into shipments. The profit decline comes even though Chrysler's sales were up 8 percent worldwide in the first quarter. Chrysler predicted a strong performance in the second half. CEO Sergio Marchionne said in a statement that the company remains on track to achieve its business targets. http://www.cbsnews .com/8301-505123_1 62-57581843/chrysl er-profits-dive-on -lower-shipments/  (Apr 29, 2013 | post #1)

Why Do Republicans Lie?

Bruce Bartlett on Where the Right Went Wrong Bill Moyers talks with conservative economist Bruce Bartlett, who wrote "the bible" for the Reagan Revolution, worked on domestic policy for the Reagan White House, and served as a top treasury official under the first President Bush. Now he's a heretic in the conservative circles where he once was a star. Bartlett argues that right-wing tax policies -- pushed in part by Grover Norquist and Tea Party activists -- are destroying the country's economic foundation. http://vimeo.com/3 6529531  (Jan 3, 2013 | post #324)

How the tea party is like communism September 23, 2010 12:00 am • By Bill Zollweg | Galesville Here are five similarities between the Republican tea party and communist totalitarians: • Both argue for the smallest possible size of government. Both want government to be fundamentally local with little to no input from a centralized federal government. • Both argue that employment should be local and involve the area workers. In communism, the term is decapitalization of labor and in the tea party, the term is domestic employment. • Both argue that the only interests that should influence the government are the interests of local citizens. • Both argue for the lowest possible tax on individual incomes. Both see taxes as a tribute extracted from the citizen by law, with no real legitimacy. • Both argue for citizen politicians. Both see the politicians as elitists, who has interests only in maintaining their elite status. Both want the “average man” to be the political person, and at the local level. The people of the tea party fail to realize these totalitarian positions. In the 1940s, C. Wright Mills pointed out that inevitably smaller government results in more “concentrated power.” Therefore, if power in the hands of fewer people is want you want, the tea party is for you. Another great American philosopher said that the communist revolution would come from the patriotic conservative. Locally, we have Mike Huebsch, Dan Kapanke, Ron Johnson and Scott Walker as suitable tea party representatives. It’s time to wake up and return to sanity. http://lacrossetri bune.com/news/opin ion/how-the-tea-pa rty-is-like-commun ism/article_f4aa10 06-c661-11df-99dd- 001cc4c002e0.html  (Nov 24, 2012 | post #3142)
