    If they vote yes, christ. I guess Enron should have been careful for 8 more years. Enron could have gotten a bailout with a Democratic majority. All Enron had to do was promote "green is universal."

    The GOP sent all manufacturing overseas and allowed Toyota & Honda to come into America so we could get cheaper cars. Congrats, because this is going to lower your wages.

    What do you do for a living Willow?

    Do you think young people want to have manufacturing jobs?

    There are better jobs out there.

    my 03 corrolla has 140k on it.

    i've never even taken it into the dealer for anything.

    change the oil religiously.

    that's it.

    runs like a champ.

    Foreigners make better vehicles than Americans. But that's Michigan for you. Sealybobo, maybe if Americans can make better cars at their cost, then auto industry wouldn't be such a financial disaster.

    Do you really think all the 16 year old kids want to get out of highschool and go to college? What about the ones that don't? Extreme poverty for them? Boy, I think America was better when even those kids could make a decent living. But because you want cheap labor, you let illegals come in to compete with our uneducated working class. And those dumb fuckers voted for McCain? I almost don't feel sorry for them knowing that.

    America thrives when ALL OF THE MIDDLE CLASS does well. That includes the factory workers. YOu don't get that.

    We went from the largest creditor to the largest debtor nation. I don't think you understand what that means. And all for cheaper products. Fucking sellouts.

    Really? Better jobs out there? Where? What? YOu guys got away with your lies last year and for the last 8 years, but I'm calling BULLSHIT on your fantasy. What better jobs? Hell, how far does $70K go nowadays anyways if you have a wife and 2 kids and they want nice things?

    They're trying to push people into hospital jobs because that's where the demand is. How much MORE are these kids going to make? And how many jobs are even available? Did you see the news yesterday? Beaumont Hospital is laying people off because people aren't getting elective surgeries. Outpatient surgeries, etc.

    The world will always need ditch diggers. It is better for all of us and the economy when those ditch diggers make more, not less. But they fooled you because as a consumer, you want to pay less. Well how about as an employee? What do you do for a living?

    And I think ALL OF US took a $10k or more step backward. If you don't believe me, tell me what you made in the 90's, then add inflation in, then check out your 401K, then add how much more you paid for gas and food this year, then tell me how much your home value went down.

    Then, tell me what you do for a living again? I want to see you lose your job and go out and find a better paying job. In this economy, chances are your next job will pay less.

    And all those factory people making $35hr are now making $10-$15 hr. if they are lucky. And that's why people aren't buying anything.

    The dirty south may like working for $15 hr., but not up north.
