You know how the saying goes…

"As GM goes, America goes!"

So, lets add to the list now: Starbucks, American Airlines, GM, etc. etc. etc.

How do you say recession in French, German and Italian???

    They had the opportunity a loooongg time ago to make energy-efficient cars not based on oil and chose not to….sorry, when Japan is making prototypes of cars that run on water, you either stay with the pack or lose the race!!!

    Yeah, and you think this is a newsflash? GM had laid off thousands before. Gee, most car companies have. That's all we need…economic news and analysis from a fat fuck.

  12. Hey P says – reply to this


    12

    Once again, instead of just regurgitating what other sources are spitting out, why not really inform your readers. GM has been on a slippery slope downward for more than 2 years. Starbucks oversaturated the market, so they're closing the stores. They overproduced across the board. Our economy only gets fucked up if we allow it to be fucked up. There are still plenty of jobs that your readers will refuse to take. So rather than assume it's a recession, do your fucking homework and realize the job loss does not mean we're in a recession. For fuck's sake woman, do your job.

    I live near a GM plant. That sucks ass! It's because they pay people way too much money. I mean don't get me wrong thats good for the people who work there but maybe if they would take a pay cut they could keep their jobs. GM sucks ass anyways.

    Hey you big gay wad, a recession is two quarters of negative economic growth in a row and we have not even had one yet. Perhaps you could help the economy by getting a real job and not blogging and to also stop shoving 4 dicks in your mouth at a time.

    The terrosits plans are working…and George Bush is one stupid fuck.

    1) 911 Attacks - check
    2) US starts war (multiple wars) - check
    3) Get them to the point of no return - check
    4) Bankrupt the economy from massive war costs - check (well on it's way)

    It's only gonna get worse. This should be no surprise to any american with half a brain.

    Here's the saddest part of the story………….There are STILL people who will vote Republican in November and somehow believe there's NOTHING wrong with the economy. If that isn't the epitome of dumb, I don't know what is………..Vote for 4 more years of the same old and this is exactly what you'll get, but don't go blaming anyone else but yourselves for being soooooo stupid.

Idiot boy didn't do this (he is too stupid to organize a trip to the bathroom) it's daddy's people around him. These people are going to burn in hell for all the murders they have committed.

    You are correct. The shit is going to hit the fan because our economy is based on a pyramid scheme at this point. The declines in the stock market and real estate are only just beginning. The pyramid is about to collapse.

    We are not in a recession! A recession, by definition, is two quarters of negative growth, we have not had any negative growth! Our growth, while very sluggish, has remained positive.

    Therefore, we are NOT in a recession.



  47. 47

    I'm sorry to say but GM deserves its downfall. I've been sold a lemon and GM refuses to fix the car. Its dealerships refuse to fix the problem and so one day the car will probably just kill me. So goodbye GM and lets welcome back Ford who brought us the assembly line and the most famous cars around that last and is supported by its dealerships and its corporate honchos.

  55. OIL says – reply to this


    55

    The price of oil is what's doing this, who can afford a big SUV or even $5 cup of coffee when it now costs $60 to fill up you car. We must drill on own own soil and fast. This same thing happened in the 70s and once OPEC saw we were commited to drill our own oil the price dropped overnight and not the 10 years some "people" want you to believe.

    56

    For the love of god people, support your fellow Americans. Buy American cars (their quality is as good if not better than the foreign), look for the made in America label, shop at your local stores in liew of Walmart. You hit it on the nail, if GM goes down, we all go down. GM and Ford both had hydrogen combustion engines ready to go but Bush was unwilling to develop the infrastructure necessary (i.e. hydrogen fueling stations–lets face it Exon isn't going to build them), they also have fuel cell vehicles that are not too far from production ready, but again where will the people go to fuel up???? Bush would rather let his oil buddies drill in Alaska and kill the wildlife off their so they can make billions of dollars every year, then look at real long term renewable energy sources. When will Bush finally admit we are in a recession and do something about it. Get his fat cat oil companies to give us a break, clamp down on out of control medical costs, and build some roads and schools in USA (instead of Iraq). Get American's working.

Are you so stupid that you can't figure out the people THEMSELVES caused the economic bubble that is now starting to deflate? Get over Kerry's and Gore's LOSS already!
    By the way, the whole economy is NOT crashing…it's correcting. The market will find a floor and will again move forward. Relax. GM's be screwing up for years. They got too big and too slow.

    What do we Americans think recession or depression? The dollar is weak the price of oil, food and clothes are up and our fearless leader George W. Bush says our economy is sound and we are not in bad shape. Guess who is in denial. I am sorry about GM and all the rest however it is all about supply and demand.

  67. Micha says – reply to this


    67

    u obviously don't know what a recession means.
    a recession is when there is negative growth for two consecutive quarters.
    but our economy GREW in the last quarter.
    maybe you should go back to school and get an education to know what a recession actually is before you say we are in a recession.

    Look Perez. Your fucked up, piece of shit President is fucking up so bad it is affecting the whole world. There's nothing, not one thing in America, Bush has NOT fucked up. Think of one thing. It is fucked up. See? So once America is fucked, then the whole world follows. It is simple economics. If you live here, no one makes shit any more. The went to foreign countries where they don't even speak English. They speak Indian, or Mexican, or Arab, or Korean, or whatever. But those people are poor in the first place, so they don't get paid much and their countries are all polluted.They don't even have water. So then, who the fuck can buy the shit all these people are making. Not us, bcz we don't have no jobs. So if GM can't sell cars, they lay people off. All over the world. And oil is expensive. Name one thing that is not affected by expensive oil. One thing. See? You can't. We need a new president.John McCain is senile and crazy from being in prison. He has dead eyes and he is albino. And he doesn't even make sense when he talks. I hope Obama goes with Hillary. Then we might have a chance. Otherwise, everyone, not just General Moters, is fucked for sure.

    Starbucks should be taken off that list.

They were in the Wall Street Journal for issues long before the economic downturn.

    Re: Mimi – Actually I know I am intelligent and that you are probably a fucking american idiot. $150,000 is on the low end of the scale for a line worker at GM in Oshawa Canada. People who have (barely) graduated highschool are making ridiculous sums of money for building pieces of shit cars. I'm glad they are all losing their jobs — it was inevitable anyway, you can't sustain salaries like that forever when better made foriegn cars like Toyota will now rule the world auto industry. GM workers and Buzz Hargrove can GO TO HELL

    wow buddy, you are delusional.
    I think the only thing you said that holds any water is that "that the president doesn't dictate the economy" No shit - it's the entire governing body. The public doesn't create a recession. The people in charge of spending the money do! The republicans have spent over $500 BILLION DOLLARS BOMBING A COUNTRY THAT DIDN'T EVEN ATTACK THE USA!! This is all part of their plan and you're delusional if you haven't figured that out yet.

    I am a GM spouse-and I have been warning for so long on the gas mileage. I always buy small GM cars with efficient engines. Hubby always told me, no one else wants them. I would bad mouth the decisions and be very vocal but I also am loyal to GM-they feed me and my family. HUbby is older, he can get Medicaire on retirement assuming its still there. I will lose my insurance but I am also the one with health problems (no matter what you do, you cannot change genetics–but I am fighting them all the way!) my minimum policy for just me will be 15 grand! with co-pays of thousands of dollars. I will be better off dying so hubby can live a decent retirement. At least the kids are grown.

    Re: FUCK – My dad was a line worker here in Michigan and working 6 days a week, he never made over 60 thousand before taxes. So I would certainly be interested in knowing where your 150 grand line worker comes from? Some Skilled trades can make 100 grand with benefits etc, but they have exceptional training etc. And these jobs are very rare. I speak from insider info. There are a log of GM rumours, lies and sometimes its hard to decipher one from the other. There are some good blogs out here to get more of the truth. Do a google search.

Unfortunately, one of my problems is cold, so why am I still in Michigan? We need to elect people here who believe that health care is a priority that taking care of our citizens and making them healthy and educated is the way to go for the future so everyone can contribute to getting this land back to being the best, smartest and strongest. I still have high hopes and dreams for us!

    ok i normally dont comment on this website but seeing some of the stupid and ignorant comments about this news really pissed me off! first off we ARE in a recession! secondly gm ceos and engineers sat on their fat ass wallets way to long and now the working people are the ones paying the price. i am a former gm employee and know how much they built that company on the backs of the workers. QUIT blaming the ones who work their asses off day after day, tearing their bodies up to do the jobs, and being at gm's mercy !!!! im sick and tired of hearing dumb asses complain that the employees are paid to well!!! if u knew how labor intensive those jobs are and how much they tear ur body up u wouldnt b bitching!!!!!!! Start blaming the real sources for all this, rick wagoner and the other ceo's who still line their wallets with millions of dollars to sit behind a desk, and the dam engineers who didnt come up with more energy efficient vehicles for gm!!! instead they just wanted to sit back and line their wallets while us workers watched and waited helplessly for the backlash!
