It is "Mary Barra", former VP short list candidate for Hitlary, vs Trump. That's right, it is the scorn of a leftist female CEO that will ultimately run an American Icon into the proverbial ground, and put tens of thousands of American workers out of work. More concerned with shareholder profits than workers or loyalty to the country that spawned the company's very existence. The insane thought process behind this is, she thinks this is a win for the left, while not giving two cents worth of care about the consequences. Trump is thinking about taking subsidies away from GM, but he should also consider a special tariff on all vehicles imported by this traitorous brand, for no other reason than to put pressure on the board to replace their grudge holding CEO. So many other maneuvers she could make, but closing plants in the US is the best and only one that make sense?

East Coast Editor Jack had a further discussion with Dana and would like to agree with a few things he said in a (second) private email and further develop the ideas mentioned here...Well, guys and gal, things are never quite as simple as they may look. The entire automobile industry is facing problems that it has to come to grips with, and the main one is changing buyer appetites. The principal manifestation of this is that people are just not buying "big" sedans the way they used to, and GM is ceasing production on the Chevy Impala, two Cadillac models including the "big" one which also happens to be its high-tech offering; and (trumpets) the Chevy Volt which was supposed to help save the world. And perhaps others -- (I read the article in Business Insider yesterday on my cell phone while waiting to get an oil change for my wife's Dodge Grand Caravan minivan and my memory isn't the best) -- after the 2019 model year. Ford has eliminated its entire lineup of sedans. I'm unaware if Fiat-Chrysler is doing the same.
GM now sells more cars in China than it does here, so does it really make good sense to make them here and ship them over there?
Why is this happening? American buyers are not buying these cars in enough quantity to justify their continued manufacture, at least in this country. They are buying SUVs. And small, foreign-make sedans (count the Hondas, Hyundais, Kias, VWs and the foreign luxury brands just for the fun of it -- they're doing just fine). Just look around you when you are driving in town. The Impalas you see are mostly eight or ten years old.
With all due respect to Jack, and the Marine, I don't believe that Mary Barra's policies have had much to do with this. You can lead a car owner to a big American sedan but you can't make him buy it, especially if he walked into the dealership with his heart set on a Jeep Cherokee.END

My oldest brother works for Ford and he said they are planning to phase a lot of the big stuff out. I suspect that it is, in part, to please the government, the environmentalists, and the left. I also suspect Americans don't like them because they are, well, ugly these days. Is that on purpose? Probably.
Dana, the question is - what does GM owe to American taxpayers who bailed them out of bankruptcy a decade ago? This is a company which once proclaimed "What is good for GM is good for the country (the U.S.A.)."
If GM wants to essentially become a Chinese company, then they will well deserve higher tariffs on their products here and even less American customer loyalty.
I recall when the NY Giants, operating in a stadium in New Jersey won the 1987 Super Bowl, they wanted a parade paid for by the City of New York and located in the Wall Street area along Broadway. Democrat Mayor Ed Koch, noting that the Giants did not bring in any tax revenues to the City, refused to pay for such a parade. Koch boldly stated, "Let them march in Moonachie (a small town in New Jersey next to Giants Stadium)." I don't recall if there was a parade
As the article said, GM trucks are still popular in the U.S., yet they are made in Mexico. If GM can't start making those trucks in Ohio, then they, too, can go march in Moonachie. And the fact that their CEO was almost Hillary's running mate as VP of the U.S.A., a position that should require concern and love for country, is an added insult to all the Chevy and Gimmie truck buyers of America.
Dana, I didn't finish one of my thoughts. Perhaps the Giants did have a 1987 parade, but it was paid for by private business corporations and not the City of New York. I don't recall exactly what happened.
I agree Jack! I heard Karl Rove on the Brian Kilmead show and he was complaining about Trump intervening in the markets in this way. Kilmead rightly pointed out that GM took all sorts of taxpayer money and now is flipping the American worker the bird. I have no problem with Trump jumping all over them here.
This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.
