It is inaccurate to say that the U.S. auto industry has collapsed. That suggests some forces other than the owners and their Wall Street pimps brought this about -- say termites chewed through the wood floors, earthquakes and time eroded the foundations. That's not what happened here.
Instead, the Financial Cartels that run this country set up an intentional and deliberate program to send manufacturing out of the U.S. to third world countries to be done by child, slave, and prison labor. The criminals on Wall Street screamed for labor cuts, rewarded outsourcing by bidding up the stock, punished investment here in our own country by supporting competing businesses from other countries.
I don't mean to be overly simplistic, but if the "leaders" of the U.S. business world had any loyalty to this country, to the people of this country, wouldn't they have fought to support our auto industry? Instead of screaming that the owners should shut down the factories, throw all the Americans out of work, take the jobs to China to be done by 12-year-old girls who live at the factory and work 7 days/week, 12 hours/day for about twenty-five cents? Aren't these Wall Street people guilty of treason? And what about our politicians? Shouldn't they have been working for us, for the American people, instead of just taking bribes from Wall Street then turning their heads and pretending they could not hear the screams of American working people whose lives were being butchered?
Just look at the malice from the Wall Street criminals in recent months. Faced with the complete devastation of Detroit and much of the rustbelt, millions of Americans thrown out of work, losing their jobs, desperate, without any hope, the Wall Street criminals have piled on the workers, screaming that they deserve to be unemployed and poor (because they're black?), they make too much money anyway (compared to whom?). Why do the Wall Street criminals hate Americans?
This wasn't a death by natural causes, nor an accident. This was murder.
