    You quote a 12 year old boy from you tube??? Priceless.

    Here are a couple more of your quotes:
    1) "Check it out on yahoo and the net. 355 years of southern and chicago democrats bigotry"
    .....see any issues with this line my friend? I do.

    2) "The same democratic party that instills in blacks today they are lazy and worthless, needing to be fed ,housed and clothed by bho's communist government!"
    ......ummmm, correct me if I am wrong, but it was a Republican party hack that stated that 47% percent of Americans, "who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. ... My job is not to worry about those people."
    That "hack" was the Republican Presidential candidate. And he didn't just include African Americans, he included quite a few others it appears.

    So again, the personality flaw of the the truly disordered. Accuse OTHERS of the exact flaw that they themselves carry.

    ATS/CTS 2016 Updates

    Great posts greatday! You have a terrific car. I want very much for GM to keep going with the ATS. Too bad car posts often go wanting here in favor of the usual haters drivel.

    What makes someone a hater? Let's start with being broad minded. Being able to see an issue from multiple angles. It is absolutely perfect that haters accuse the broad minded of NOT being able to see issues from unique angles. So symmetric to their personality flaw.

    Anyway, you are correct about above. Solstice and G8 and other Pontiacs will be hugely collectible

  • My opinion. I am fairly disgusted to see the numbers coming out of corporate offices for share buybacks, dividends and special dividends.

    This morning, CNBC revealed that, last year alone, Apple spent 45 BILLION dollars on share buybacks.
    I believe 95% percent (ready to be corrected on that...) of all S&p500 earnings in the first quarter of 2015 are targeted at share buybacks. The size of that number is simply STAGGERING. The allocation of resources to stock, as opposed to building factories in the US or perhaps profit sharing in some amount to workers, says a great deal about corporate/Apple ethics. To help put it into perspective, the cost to FOXCONN corp, to build an entire factory in china is less than 10% of Apple's 2014 share buyback (Tesla is building a "gigafactory" for 6 billion)!!!!

    Keep in mind, APPLE is a company that told the US President that they "could not find 6,000 Industrial Engineers in the US. No WAY they can build in the states......" As a matter of fact, Apple prefers to pay taxes in Ireland and build in China. We have many apple products in my house. Too many. Many families do. Maybe we should ask more of Mr. Cook. A LOT more.

    Within 18 months of Apple saying they could not find Industrial Engineers, General Motors hired 4,000 Industrial Engineers.........
    They are now working here in the states and doing terrific work.

    Glad to see GM focusing on Customers, Product, Employees AND share appreciation. Priorities matter. Keep the GM board focused on customer, product and employee. Gm will continue to do better than fine.

    What were people thinking? Ummm, actually, they weren't. Chevy Volt and Chevy Bolt continue to mark GM's readiness to move. Yes the trucks are selling, as they should, but the lineup continues to get stronger.

    Don't worry about Cadillac and Buick, everyone can see where they are headed. GM's approach continues to be fantastic. One thing at a time. NIce.

    The USA is going to raise tariffs on trade partners who continue to cheat American businesses and taxpayers.

    The Trans Pacific Partnership, a bogus trade deal, trying to be consummated in private, will never pass in its present format. That is a good thing.

    While Canada and the United States will continue to have debate and disagreements over the pipeline and other items, their transparent approach will ultimately result in the two sides compromising.

    Do NOT trust trade agreements being conducted in private negotiation. Not ever.

    Apple? Cars?

    It appears Apple will NOT be buying tesla. They are going to enter the car space. They are even announcing dates.
    Huge negative for this stock. They do not have the skill or mindset to produce cars. They cannot acquire the skill or mindset. They simply do not have the culture.

    Apple is currently out of ideas. They don't have a clear vision for their electronics future. They will lose at cars and it will drain their cash.
    ALSO, I want this company to start building here. I want this company to stop the tax arbitrage schemes it is using.
    I could be wrong but I doubt it.

    You are asking me about Windows 3.1? A little defensive aren't you?
    I have Apple products. Multiple, like many people. Some are brand new and others not. I am not too keen about their support for some older software. Period. In fact, one might guess that they are using this as a strategy. It appears so.

    You are guessing about the direction they will take. I simply don't care. No Apple cars for me. Period. Interface elements? Maybe. One more item........the whole made in China thing needs to stop as well.

  • thsykes14 by thsykes14 Feb 17, 2015 12:17 PM Flag

    Let me see if I have this straight, a company that does not support its own software with upgrades and service, beyond certain dates, is now going to produce automobiles that stay in service decades at a time?
    And do it well?
    And manufacture them where? In China??

    No thanks!!! And I own the computers and phones but NO THANKS!!!

    No more excuses.
