Ford swings the axe

Well how ironic I was going to blog about the Corvette plant and in todays headlines Ford is swinging the axe. This hot on the heels of GM swinging the axe a few months ago is a major blow to the UAW and thousands of workers who trusted their unions to take care of them.

I am sure it is shocking news to many but it should hardly be suprising. Now before you have too much sympathy for the UAW workers ponder this from a recent article about the Delphi Plant:

Skilled workers average $30.77 an hour
Production wages average $26.35 an hour

Now compare that to the national average for:

Paramedic $13.43
RN $26.77
Police Officer $22.40
Fire Fighter $19.22


Now if you think a job building cars, trucks or dildos should pay better than the four jobs above, you are a complete and utter piece of shit.

Buy a Ford and support terrorism!

Okay so maybe thats a stretch but bear with me for minute or three and let me explain where I am coming from.

I was in traffic behind a slow moving Ford truck decorated with UMWA, Proud Democrat and Kerry Edwards 2002 stickers. Naturally my first thoughts were another assclown that votes with the straight ticket button.

So then it all started to come together in my head. This guy works and pays union dues for wages and benefits he would still get or better if he worked at a non union mine. The union then gives generously to the DNC. He then takes whats left of his wages and buys a Ford F-whatever for $40,000 made by the UAW who also dumps large sums of money into the DNC and urges its members to vote for the Democrats. Apparently its because people like John Kerry and Ted Kennedy can really appreciate the working man. So the UAW is trying to get people into office whose plan seems to be placating our enemies.

So not only is that supporting our enemies who want us dead still no matter if you are from a blue or red state but also supporting the whining UAW members.

Next up lets talk about the Corvette plant.
