<<<Are you surprised he's bearish on GM at least short to mid-term? So am I.>>>
So am I.....means, so am I bearish.
I didn't mean I'm surprised he's bearish....anyone who's intelligent and follows GM closely for awhile should easily be able to see that GM stock has major problems.
<<<<Since you always profess to be so highly eduacated>>>>
I can't recall Cobra ever professing to be highly educated, even once. However, he clearly is. Are you surprised he's bearish on GM at least short to mid-term? So am I.
'Defend GM and refuse to buy a Japanese vehicle then you're a racist'
Admitting you are one and having hatred towards others that are NOT white DOES make you a racist.
Therefore, you are one.
it's an inside joke moron about him being an admitted racist. Since you take his side so much, maybe you are one as well? I don't know. But I am starting to think you are as well.
Keep up the good work.
Sunday, December 7th, 1941--Admiral Chester Nimitz was attending a concert in Washington D.C.
He was paged and told there was a phone call for him. When he answered the phone, it was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the phone. He told Admiral Nimitz that he (Nimitz) would now be the Commander of the Pacific Fleet.
Admiral Nimitz flew to Hawaii to assume command of the Pacific Fleet. He landed at Pearl Harbor on Christmas Eve, 1941. There was such a spirit of despair, dejection and defeat--you would have thought the Japanese had already won the war. On Christmas Day, 1941, Adm. Nimitz was given a boat tour of the destruction wrought on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese. Big sunken battleships and navy vessels cluttered the waters everywhere you looked. As the tour boat returned to dock, the young helmsman of the
boat asked, "Well Admiral, what do you think after seeing all this destruction?"
Admiral Nimitz's reply shocked everyone within the sound of his voice. Admiral Nimitz said, "The Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could ever make or God was taking care of America . Which do you think it was?"
Shocked and surprised, the young helmsman asked, "What do mean by saying the Japanese made the three biggest mistakes an attack force ever made?"
Mistake No. 1: the Japanese attacked on Sunday morning. Nine out of every ten crewmen of those ships were ashore on leave. If those same ships had been lured to sea and been sunk--we would have lost 38,000 men instead of 3,800.
Mistake No. 2: When the Japanese saw all those battleships lined in a row, they got so carried away sinking
those battleships, they never once bombed our dry docks opposite those ships. If they had destroyed our
dry docks, we would have had to tow every one of those ships to America to be repaired. As it is now, the ships are in shallow water and can be raised. One tug can pull them over to the dry docks, and we can have them repaired and at sea by the time we could have towed them to America . And I already have crews ashore anxious to man those ships.
Mistake No.3: Every drop of fuel in the Pacific theater of war is in top of the ground storage tanks five miles away over that hill. One attack plane could have strafed those tanks and destroyed our fuel supply. That's why
I say the Japanese made three of the biggest mistakes an attack force could make or God was taking care of America .
I've never forgotten what I read in that little book. It is still an inspiration as I reflect upon it. In jest, I might that Admiral Nimitz was a born optimist. But anyway you look at it--Admiral Nimitz was able to see a silver lining in a situation and circumstance where everyone else saw only despair and defeatism. President Roosevelt had chosen the right man for the right job. We desperately needed a leader that could see silver linings in the midst of the clouds of dejection, despair and defeat.
(From "Reflections on Pearl Harbor" by Admiral Chester Nimitz)
That was an interesting read Jeye - I saw that same cut and paste from someone else (who attributed it to the author). They pulled it from a book that was in the bookstore at Pearl Harbor. I found the visit to Pearl Harbor that my wife and I did last year to be fascinating and well worth checking out if you ever get to Hawaii.
Thank you many times for that wonderful AMERICAN post Jeye. Today's kids just dont get it. They think its " Cool" or " funny " to dis America or that we should forget. I believe we have already forgiven and thats evident by just looking at the Japanese/ German Americans around you in our playgrounds , our colleges, our work force . Forget ? thats another story for another time .
