    I have heard nothing from the Detroit automakers.  It seems time that they get some skin in the game.
    We bailed out "Detroit" for $25.1 billion. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...  Now they sell us out by their silence.
    No pressure from unions or workers will change this governor's mind.  It's time to direct some fire at GM, Ford, Daimler, etc.

    •  We should counter-attack (0+ / 0-)

      There has to be leverage somewhere we can use to pressure Big Auto to come out against this Republican attack on workers and their unions.

      Suppose we could find a tool, such as a nationwide boycott, and promise to use it against any of the Big Auto companies who do not come out against this Republican attack.

      •  The problem with power is that, to be felt, (0+ / 0-)

        it has to hurt. Those who lust for power cannot do good. The greater the injury they inflict, the more powerful they are.

        That is why when our Uncle Cons whine about the President being weak, they are merely taking cognizance of the fact that he is doing good.

        The lust for power is like other obsessions. It cannot be assuaged. It requires an intervention.

        We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

      They say they don't want the divisiveness, but won't come out against it either. Cowards.
