"Foreman says these jobs are going boys and they ain't coming back..."

This is a beautiful article. I often think of those jobs that Romney will 'fight for'. Why should a factory worker have two SUVs, a house in the suburbs, a cottage in the northern part of the state, and a boat? The UAW and Big Three inflated wages and thus the standard of living
here to preposterous levels.

And - what self-respecting UAW member 20 years ago was thinking - boy I hope my son/daughter can get a job here when they turn 18? If they were smart, and therefore not expecting 'protection', they would have sent them off to college so that they could work in a different industry.

KT likes cheap stuff.
