    Investment in Tonawanda GM plant brings new generation | The Spectrum

    Looks like GM is doing some good with the money we gave them - bringing 500 jobs back to WNY.

    You mean Tonawanda, right?

    Yes, Tonwanda is in Mrs. Slaughter's district.

    God I love her name.

    Yes!!!

    Marxism is an ideology for the rights of "WORKERS".

    So the only way to fight it is to insure that... nobody's working.

    Then there are no workers. And society is saved from the big bad socialists.

    DUHH!!!:cuckoo:

    Well, as Right wingers like myself understand it.

    GM is investing in a plant in the district of the head of the House Rules Committee.

    GM is dependent on government largesse to survive, so from now on, they will no longer be investing on criteria like where they can find skilled labor, or where there is access to resources or materials, but from now on they will be siting their plants dependent on where the chairman of the _______ fill in the blank committee lives. If the chairman of the appropriations committee needs to point out to his constituents that he brought in 500 jobs, then GM's new factory will go there. Even if it has no other reason for being there.

    It's not first time that GM reinvest in old plants.

    I just hope it was a business decision, not political.

    Glad to see that Zombie Motors is investing other peoples money to buy votes for a politician, well at least 500 people have jobs which is a good thing at least until we get some sane politicians in Washington that decide to pull the federal money rug out from under GM and let it die like it should have.
