There Are No Words To Describe GM CEO's Ignorance

No less than the man who launched the automobile industry as we know it today once said:

"It is not the employer who pays the wages. Employers only handle the money. It is the customer who pays the wages."

Well, that's not how the man running General Motors sees it these days.

To him?  GM is going to make the Volt, and if the public doesn't like it?

Oh, well ...

Dan Akerson on the Volt and its lack of customer support: "We're doing the right thing for the company at the right time. We will leave it up to the consumer how they interpret that."

He's going to make the thing.  Customers are welcome to buy it.  But it's up to them.  If they don't, he still did the right thing.

Why, again, does GM exist?

Henry Ford, the author of that quote at the top, is rolling over in his grave right now.

America, I Love You

It don't get better than this:

Obama and his press corps come out - as one - to denounce Rush Limbaugh.

And the nation responds.

Drudge has the headline:


Mr. Hope & Change keeps it up and Romney is going to win by default.

His handlers thought Rush would be a good diversion from the growing scandal over gas prices.

So much for his really smart handlers.

The Difference Between Them & Us

It's not a matter of permitting them to voice their opinions.  It goes beyond that.  I love to read them, publish them, and heap ridicule upon them.

Those "open-minded" liberals?  They want us silenced.

Case in point:

Gloria Allred seeks Rush Limbaugh prosecution

Rush's crime?  He said things she doesn't like.  So she wants him punished.

Allred: “Mr. Limbaugh targeted his attack on a young law student who was simply exercised [sic] her free speech and her right to testify before congress on a very important issue to millions of American women and he vilified her. He defamed her and engaged in unwarranted, tasteless and exceptionally damaging attacks on her."

Make note of the fact that, in her view, that young (30-year-old) law student had free speech rights that are to be protected, but Rush Limbaugh doesn't.

If I were like this small-minded liberal, I'd want her banished.

Instead I expose her idiocy for all the world to see.

Them.  Us.

The 1st Amendment.  Ain't no asterisk there, babe, no matter how much you want there to be.

America, Know Thy Enemy

They don't have your best interest at heart:

Read "The Harvard Hug: What Else Are Media Hiding?"

And gain a better understanding of who they are and why they plot to keep the truth from you.

Absolutely shameful.

Delegate Bob Wins One For The Good Guys

Due Process of Law
1.No person shall be deprived of life, liberty, property or of any right granted him by statute, unless matter involved first shall have been adjudicated against him upon trial conducted according to established rules regulating judicial proceedings, and it forbids condemnation without a hearing.

Virginia, HB 1160: Unlawful detention of U.S. citizens; prevents any agency, etc., from assisting in investigation.

Unlawful detention of United States citizens.  Prevents any agency, political subdivision, employee, or member of the military of Virginia from assisting an agency of the armed forces of the United States in the conduct of the investigation, prosecution, or detention of a United States citizen in violation of the United States Constitution, Constitution of Virginia, or any Virginia law or regulation.

From the desk of the new law's chief sponsor, Delegate Bob Marshall:
Marshall Hails Final Passage of his bill against Illegal Detention
Senate Votes 37-1
Legislator Urges Gov. McDonnell to Sign HB 1160 into Law as Part of the Code of Virginia

Richmond, March 8 – Delegate Bob Marshall today praised the Virginia State Senate for passing his HB 1160 to prevent Virginia’s government agencies and employees from having to take part in illegal and indefinite federal detention of United States citizens.

The action completes the Virginia General Assembly’s consideration of the legislation. Marshall (R., Manassas) urged Gov. Bob McDonnell to sign the bill into law.

“I extend heartfelt thanks to the thousands of concerned citizens who communicated with members of the Senate and the House of Delegates over the last several weeks, urging adoption of this important measure against federal violation of our precious constitutional rights,” Marshall said.

“By overwhelming votes, members of both houses of the Virginia General Assembly now have expressed themselves in their unmistakable understanding of the inviolate protections of our civil rights under the constitutions of the United States and Virginia.

“I urge Gov. McDonnell to acknowledge this outpouring of grass-roots and legislative support of HB 1160, and I urge him to add his signature to this vital protection of our sacred liberties as citizens of Virginia and the nation.”

After days of adverse legislative maneuvering triggered by unspecified reports that McDonnell “had concerns” about HB 1160, the Senate voted 37-1 to accept the bill as it was originally passed by the House on Feb. 4 by a 96-4 vote.

With today’s vote, the Senate turned away from its own version of the legislation, which contained a clarifying amendment accepted by Marshall and adopted Feb. 28 by a 38-1 vote. That amendment, however, marked the beginning of behind-the-scenes manipulation intended to scuttle HB 1160.

“Beyond doubt, the letters, telephone calls and e-mail messages in support of my bill are what carried the day,” Marshall said. “These good folks did not give up in the face of adversity, and they prevailed. Now I hope they will carry this fight further by entreating Gov. McDonnell to complete the process and sign the bill into law.” [link]
Thanks, Bob, for denying the United States government the right to employ citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia in the illegal act of imprisoning or killing United States citizens without due process.

Here's to ya, man, for fighting the good fight.
