Carter, Obama, and Liberal Stupidity

August 6, 2009

I’ll be honest with you: liberals are some of the most stupid people on the planet.  I’m serious when I say that.

One can then only conclude that Papa Doc Obama is one of THE most stupid presidents to occupy the White House.

Making Cars Americans Want to Buy (Redux)

May 15, 2009

Yes, you’ve heard the expression, “The Big Three doesn’t make the kinds of cars Americans want to buy.”  They blame the SUV, anything considered a gas guzzler, and blame executives at the domestic automakers for not having enough foresight.

Quite Telling

April 6, 2009

So, I’m cruising around the cable channels, and what should I happen to come across?  The Larry King Show on CNN.  And their subject?  Why, discussing what Barack Obama is going to do to the domestic auto industry!

If there was ever a prime example of what a bunch of mental defectives make up the media industry in this country, it is on full display when Larry King takes to the airwaves.

Why The Auto Industry Is Failing – Part 6

December 17, 2008

In this installment we tackle excessive government regulations.

This might seem like a repeat of part #2 of the installment (emissions regulations) – it sorta is.  All of the regulations that surround cars are part of the problem.

But, perhaps, not in ways you might expect.

Why The Auto Industry Is Failing – Part 4.

December 8, 2008

In this installment, we look at unfair trade practices.

Now mind you, I’m a free-trade kinda guy.  I’m a huge believer that free-trade practices provide competitive pressures that force companies to provide better products.  And we’ve seen this happen with the Japanese invasion in the 1970s.  The US automakers got complacent in making crap.  Along come the Japanese, with their focus on constant quality improvement, and gave the sedentary US auto sector a good run for its money.

As it stands right now, US automakers make cars that are as good, if not better, than what the Japanese make.  You’ll never hear this being said, because the major media outlets are more focused on the tag-line that domestic cars suck.  The fact is cars from Ford, GM, and Chrysler have come a very long way from even the quality improvements of the 1990s.

This is a prime example of how open markets, and competition works.

Unfortunately, the competitive advantages are skewed against domestic automakers.  Much of this is the fault of government.

If Republicans cared about the US auto industry…

December 4, 2008

…they’d pass funding for a Big Three bailout.

For those of you who know me, this may seem like a HUGE reversal of my basic principles.  I think companies should stand and fall based on the market.  Even though I feel that the federal government is to blame for a vast majority of the problems that the Big Three encounters, my inclination is that government should get out of manipulating the private sector.  A bailout of companies like GM and Chrysler only injects more government intervention into the marketplace.

However, I think now is the time for Republicans to agree to the passage of a bailout for the US automakers, and quickly.
