    They want to bring wages down of course, but they can accomplish economically what they want to do if they can just get the middle class basis down 20% or so - hold it - and continue to grow their markets and wages in the developing countries with continued increasing revenues and dividends from the likes of Brazil, Russia, India, and China.

    These people have no pride of country. The only allegiance to which they pledge is wealth.

      We'd rather dream the American Dream than fight to live it or to give it to our kids. What a shame. What an awful, awful shame.

      General Motors has plants all around the world. Over half its productive capacity is located outside the US; over half its profits are made outside the US; it sells more cars in China than it does the US.

      GM has no "country".  

      Neither does any other Fortune 500 corporation.

      Our patriotic weeping doesn't faze them in the slightest.
