    bunky,kind of surprised you would jump on the Stockman bandwagon. I agree he needs to make amends for the 28 year disaster known as trickle down. He is giving it his best shot.
    " former adviser of Ronald Reagan has some choice words for George W. Bush.

    David Stockman, Reagan’s budget director from 1981 to 1985, slammed Bush and his former boss in an op-ed in The New York Times Sunday. Stockman argued in the piece that Reagan’s view on the deficit “created a template for the Republicans’ utter abandonment of the balanced-budget policies of Calvin Coolidge.”

    “(Reagan’s deficit policies) allowed George W. Bush to dive into the deep end, bankrupting the nation through two misbegotten and unfinanced wars, a giant expansion of Medicare and a tax-cutting spree for the wealthy that turned K Street lobbyists into the de facto office of national tax policy,” Stockman wrote.

    I see the sap was blowing about some supplier poll which rated GM as hard to deal with. From Reuters-

    [[[[[[[[[[[[The suppliers also said that GM was the automaker least likely to allow them to raise prices to recoup unexpected material cost increases.

    "As a result, GM is now the least preferred customer of suppliers," PPI says.]]]]]]]]]]

    Lets get to the truth sap-let them raise their prices and I am sure relations would be peachy. Of course you did not bother to include this part in your post. You have a habit of leaving certain points out of your post

    Sap,I will put Roger B in a context that you, a lover of Japan Inc. can understand. By 1989 it was noted by several people that Roger B had wasted enough money pursuing his idiotic dream of eliminating the UAW that at its market cap in 1989 he could of bought ALL of toyoda

    I have said before that I do not think the sap uses multiple IDs-but I have no doubt the used car salesman does and is lurking behind a screen

    So the airlines objected to planes being built on an assembly line?

    {Then came the organizing blitz on the plan's behalf. By Dec. 27—four days after its presentation to FDR by the CIO's Philip Murray—Reuther was already able to explain his "500 Planes a Day" production plan to a nationwide radio audience; the next day, Sunday, he had a morning breakfast meeting with some of the top New Deal proponents of the Roosevelt administration, including John Carmody, who had succeeded Harry Hopkins as head of the Works Progress Administration (WPA); Treasury Department's Harry Dexter White, who would draft the Bretton Woods accords; and the National Defense Advisory Commission's Leon Henderson. With the dawn of 1941, Reuther presented his plan at the Washington Press Club. Even Joseph Rauh, who at the time was a lawyer for the defense mobilization, conceded about Reuther's Washington Press Club address, "This young man took Washington and all its cynical reporters by storm that day." He said that Reuther's plan to accelerate aircraft production "was the greatest thing he ever did ... because it combined his gigantic knowledge of social forces, his mastery of technical forces, and his idealism."

    Meanwhile, Undersecretary of War Robert Patterson—the number-two man in the Defense Department under Harry Stimson—had taken notice. Patterson's assistant Robert Lovett asked General Motors chairman William Knudsen to turn over aircraft engine blueprints to Reuther. A military aircraft was put at Reuther's disposal to tour defense plants in January 1941. Accompanied by Army Air Force officers, Reuther inspected the Pratt & Whitney engine factory in Hartford, Connecticut, and the Glenn L. Martin plant in Baltimore. According to a letter from H.H. Arnold to Patterson on Jan. 29, 1941, at both facilities, management attitudes toward Reuther quickly changed from "hostility to tolerance" because "he was earnestly trying to help th

    "The US will be the world's #1 oil producing nation by the year 2020," although that could now happen.

    Not only are new finds being discovered, new oil is being found in old fields. And some formerly 'dry' wells seem to be refilling.

    So I don't think anybody really knows how far out our oil is gonna last. ]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

    Sap it is not very often you write a post that is correct. When you do I will acknowledge it. Of course no mention of Obama allowing all this new drilling

    You idiot-how many times do we have to cover this.This is as bad as your claim that cars shipped to dealers is how GM counted sales ,even though you were told that the commerce dept demanded actual sales to gauge economic activity. We have covered the restructuring also. On 9-12-08 the #$%$ banks collapsed. Get it? When the banks go down there is ZERO ability to do DIP financing with something as massive as GM.. We lost 6.5 and 6.3% GNP in a span of two quarters. We lost 5.4 million jobs in six months. Only the government stepping in prevented 1929.. And save your BS about "someone buying the assets.".Everyone else was in the same boat. And Obama was INCREDIBLY generous to the bondholders considering they snubbed their nose at him and under your scenario they would of ended up WITH ZERO. You really need to get back to the Midwest,that salt air has just about fried any brain cells you had.

    It is called wages sap-they have been dropping since 1970 and we are only halfway through the Bush depression. Wages have not kept up with prices-sap I am selling a lot of cattle Monday and the price they will bring is unbelievable. I got a call from the Dems concerning this midterm and what the issue should be.Easy-jobs,wages,and income inequality. I even gave them a plan to stimulate the economy immediately. Reverse SS,which would hurt me ,but is what would be best for the country. The first $60000 for the individual(not the company)would be SS free. This would put $3750 in peoples pockets that WOULD spend it. Now I know the concept of buyers and sellers is hard for you to understand ,but this would be the biggest stimulus in US history. Of course they said I would bankrupt SS. I told them that was only half the plan.The other part is eliminating the $117000 cap. That would be tough on Warren,but he would understand. It is like planting seeds sap,the more you plant ,the more you harvest. It is a concept you or the GOP have no clue of,which is why the economy is stagnant. I then added getting Sherrod Browns currency manipulation bill through the house to fix Asia once and for all. Of course we will have to eliminate congressmen that only want to discuss dinosaur farts to get any of this done
