66. I'd go further and
say that the Repugs that are leading the charge come from those southern states that still have a slave labor mentality. It's time that the unions fought back and I don't mean by negotiating. They will have to go back to using the roughhouse tactics that won them a foothold in the first place. I'll leave that to your imagination but when all else fails you resort to drastic measures. I've also wondered for quite a while why more people have'nt been discussing the fact that most of the Repugs who are against the bailout come from states that have a vested interest in breaking the automakers union and/or destroying the Big Three. It further protects the status quo in those states and promotes future auto industry growth on their home turf. It's obvious that by rejecting the bailout they think they can hasten the downfall of the Big Three, eliminate or greatly reduce Detroit's status as a player and promote growth in their own state. But this may well be the trigger that will bring on the onset of a full fledged depression and it shows their typical narrow mindedness and mean spiritedness i.e., the rest of the country can go to hell! . I don't know what Obama should say to them later today but I hope he really comes out swinging.
