    Amidst much fanfare, President Obama shook hands with workers at the July 15, 2010 ground breaking ceremony for the LG Chem plant in Holland, Michigan, built with a $150 million grant from the Department of Energy as part of his 2009 "Stimulus" package. The plant, owned by a Korean company, was supposed to manufacture batteries to be used in electric Chevrolet Volt, the latest offering from the government owned General Motors corporation bailed out by President Obama with billions of taxpayers dollars.

    To an enthralled crowd that included then Governor of Michigan Jennifer Granholm, executives of the Korean company that own the plant, and hundreds of hopeful factory workers, President Obama made a bold promise that day:

    "This is a symbol of where Michigan is going, this is a symbol of where Holland is going, and this is a symbol of where America's going."

    No worries, the government will use money to defend embassies in unstable countries to buy Volts for embassies in Paris, or London, or anyplace deserving of a perk.

    That embassy had already had eight attacks in the prior six months. The Volts were probably evacuated.

    Good response. I was not aware of all that. Volts in Eueope must have been more important than security. Probably just trying to buy all G.M. that he can so he don't look like such a complete failure

    So spending all of them BILLIONS that look like they are moving overseas is saving it? About like him investing in them wind farms in China? Think there is too much "sugar" in your kool-aid?

    Sad but funny as hell story I need to tell right quick..Me and My neighbor own Mercedes SEC's...I have a 1989 and he HAD a 1991...you can see whose sad and whose still happy already right?...keep reading...

    My neighbors' dumbass traded in his 1991 Mercedes 560 SEC to get a gotdamn Prius during Obama's "Cash for Clunkers" fiasco. Big time Obama cocksucker he is...anyway.. Now in 2012, All he talks about is how much he missees that Merc...so much so that his entire garage is covered in Mercedes memoribilia and not one gotdamn picture of a fucking Prius to be found....LOL:clap2:

    FUCK OBAMA!

    not my SEC pictured, just for reference

    Nice to see that the United Auto Workers are doing what they're really good at: taking every opportunity to NOT work.

    I wonder how many UAW "workers" are out in the Volt battery plant parking lot smoking dope, drinking beer, and screwing female co-workers. That stuff is commonplace at ALL U.S. auto plants.
