It may seem that I was being a bit harsh on Mr. Wade and company. I am not. I do not these men personally. There are sports figures the mythical heroes in which we all use to define our battles. The heat are a very, very talented team. Mr. Wade nor Mr. James need me to tell them they both are world class athletes... I will never be able to dunk, not double dribble none of that.
I used this series, this playoff run this year because God asked me to.
Not one to really get into sports, but I prayed upon on it and God told me to draw lessons from here. Leaders, real leaders don't leave their teammates hanging like that.
Not on the court,
Not on the battlefield,
Not in politics, as Mr. Barack Obama has a bad habit of it too.
These folk love all the credit, but run when adversity strikes.
It sets a bad example for our young people.
Nobody really cared, about what Wade did, but the Dallas bench, my point of it is, if you arouse somebody like that then, don't be surprised when someone makes you eat your words. The heat did that to me, and the celtics. While I didn't take responsibility for making any shots or anything, I did and do take responsibly of making these playoff games more than just about basketball..
It is not the total fault upon these two men, themselves........
They are employees of the NBA,
who decided a long time ago, the true spirit of competition would fall victim to marketing strategies...
It's killing them right now, that the best small forward still playing is Shawn Marion, not Lebron James. But you get what you pay for, especially when you pay up front for something you haven't tested.......
They are simply doing their jobs..........
Let's see what Wonder Mike and Lamar Alexander, have to say about that.
As Always, we defer to the office on this page and allow the President to speak first.
Hello, everyone. I’m speaking to you today from a Chrysler plant in Toledo, Ohio, where I just met with workers, including Jill. Jill was born and raised here. Her mother and step-father retired from this plant. And she met her husband here, and now they have two children of their own. This plant has not only been central to the economy of this town. It’s been a part of the lifeblood of this community.
Good deal, showing up in a swing state...... We all know no President has won without Ohio, you not trying to be the first. Appeal to the union, blue collar workers, like they are the only ones who work hard, but I feel you, Obama. so let's see what you bringing up today.
The reason I came to Toledo was to congratulate Jill and her co-workers on the turnaround they helped bring about at Chrysler and throughout the auto industry. Today, each of the Big Three automakers – Chrysler, GM, and Ford – is turning a profit for the first time since 2004. Chrysler has repaid every dime and more of what it owes American taxpayers for their support during my presidency – and it repaid that money six years ahead of schedule. And this week, we reached a deal to sell our remaining stake. That means soon, Chrysler will be 100% in private hands.
FIRST OF ALL, YOU DIDN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH FORD. SECOND OF ALL, YOU SOLD OUR REMAINING STAKE AT A LOSS, THIRD OF ALL, IT DOESN'T MATTER, NO DISRESPECT TO JILL OR HER FAM. IF YOU WANTED TO BAILOUT AUTOMAKERS MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN A JOB AT GOLDMAN SACHS.
THE BAILOUT WAS NOT NEEDED. MR. OBAMA YOU DID SOLELY FOR THE NUMBER OF SEIU THAT WILL BE INDEBTED TO YOU VOTE WISE. WHILE WE ALL NEED JOBS, WE HAVE TO MAKE SIGNIFICANT CUTS AND CHANGES TO ENTITLEMENTS BECAUSE YOU DECIDED TO INTERVENE IN A PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESS MATTER.
IF GM WENT OUT OF BUSINESS, THERE WOULD BE A LOT MORE PEOPLE DRIVING WHICH PRODUCES ECONOMIC ACTIVITY IN ITSELF. THE WAY THAT THIS ECONOMY WORKS IS THAT WE FEED OFF OF EVERY ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY.
THERE WAS NO NEED FOR THIS ACT, WONDER MIKE.
Most importantly, all three American automakers are now adding shifts and creating jobs at the strongest rate since the 1990s. Chrysler has added a second shift at the Jefferson North plant in Detroit that I visited last year. GM is adding a third shift at its Hamtramck plant for the first time ever. And GM plans to hire back all of the workers they had to lay off during the recession.
OKAY, I SEE YOU HAVING A LITTLE TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING. YOU DIDN'T DO GRIT FOR FORD, WE PUT FORD ON OUR BACKS TO ENSURE YOUR HANDS WOULDN'T GET ON THEM. AND THAT'S COOL WITH GM, HIRING BACK AND STUFF, BUT STILL THE BAILOUT WASN'T NEEDED.
THE COUNTRY WOULD HAVE SURVIVED.
WE ARE 15 TRILLION DOLLARS IN THE HOLE, WE CAN'T EVEN MAKE PAYROLL BECAUSE YOU KEEP HIRING,
NO JUSTIFICATION FOR THIS. THOSE PLANTS COULD HAVE WENT TO KIA, BENZ OR OTHER AUTOMAKERS,
GM IS A PRIVATE CORPORATION OR USED TO BE.
THEY RISE AND FALL ON THEIR OWN BOOTSTRAPS.
That’s remarkable when you think about where we were just a couple of years ago. When I took office, we were facing the worst recession since the Great Depression – a recession that hit our auto industry particularly hard. In the year before I was President, this industry lost more than 400,000 jobs, and two great American companies, Chrysler and GM, stood on the brink of collapse.
WASN'T YOUR JOB TO SAVE THEM.........AND WHAT'S REMARKABLE IS THAT WHILE THAT INDUSTRY HAS LOST 400,000, YOUR ADMINISTRATION HAS LOST 8 MILLION JOBS.......REMARKABLE YOU STILL IN OFFICE. IT DON'T MATTER WHETHER THESE WERE AMERICAN COMPANIES OR NOT, WE SAVE COMPANIES THROUGH COMMERCE NOT THROUGH GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION.......... AND HOW CAN YOU EVEN HAVE THE BALLS TO SAY SOMETHING LIKE THAT WHEN YOU LETTING MEXICO AND BRAZIL DRILL IN OUR GULF AND PUT THOSE PEOPLE OUT OF WORK......
i KNOW YOU GANGSTA BUT DMAN....
Now, we had a few options. We could have done what a lot of folks in Washington thought we should do – nothing. But that would have made a bad recession worse and put a million people out of work. I refused to let that happen. So, I said, if GM and Chrysler were willing to take the difficult steps of restructuring and making themselves more competitive, the American people would stand by them – and we did.
No love, WE GROWN FOLKS HERE. YOU REFUSED TO LET THOSE FOLK GO OUT OF WORK, BUT YOU PUT SO MANY RESTRICTIONS ON CHARITIES, a lot of those folk got laid off. You shut the gulf down, those folk got laid off. The American people didn't need the government to stand by GM and Chrysler you did, and you are reminding GM and Chrysler and Jill and Ohio that they owe you for that........
It is what it is.
But we decided to do more than rescue this industry from a crisis. We decided to help it retool for a new age, and that’s what we’re doing all across the country – we’re making sure America can out-build, out-innovate, and out-compete the rest of the world. That’s how we’ll build an economy where you can see your incomes and savings rise again, send your kids to college, and retire with dignity, security, and respect. That’s how we’ll make sure we keep that fundamental American promise – that if you work hard and act responsibly, you’ll be able to pass on a better life to your kids and grandkids.
if you work hard and act responsibility, this from the dude who thinks being rich outside of being on the left is bad. this from the dude that wants to take what you do earn earnestly and give it to others b/c he is robin hood and he wants to be fair....... You cut out capital gains, tax, refuse to pass a budget, put all kind of restrictions with health care, but give Pelosi's whole district waivers. Damn basketball, you should have stayed Hollywood, b/c just saying lines obviously ain't nothing to dyou... Dude, making cars more sleek and European ain't gonna reinvent GM.
Now, we’ve got a ways to go. Even though our economy has created more than two million private sector jobs over the past 15 months and continues to grow, we’re facing some tough headwinds. Lately, it’s high gas prices, the earthquake in Japan, and unease about the European fiscal situation. That will happen from time to time. There will be bumps on the road to recovery.
Let me repeat, YOUR ADMINISTRATION HAS LOST 8 MILLION JOBS. AFTER YOU RECEIVED 8 TRILLION DOLLARS. Ain't gonna be no speed bumps.......As soon as we get rid of you, reid, and pelosi we isley brothers, baby, smooth sailing.
You know we strong because after you blowing 8 trillion we still here, we hurting, we shot up, but we here.
We know that. But we also know what’s happened here, at this Chrysler plant. We know that hardworking Americans like Jill helped turn this company and this industry around. That’s the American story. We’re a people who don’t give up – who do big things, who shape our own destiny. And I’m absolutely confident that if we hold on to that spirit, our best days are still ahead of us. Thanks for tuning in, and have a great weekend.
YOU SHO' RIGHT BROTHER, AMEN TO THAT WHICH IS WHY SINCE NOVEMBER 4, 2008, WE'LL HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR HOPE TO FIND A WAY TO CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS BACK TO THE SOUTHSIDE OF CHICAGO......
THEY LIKE THAT ROBIN HOOD, NOBODY PAYS FOR CRAP SCAM, THE REST OF THE NATION CAN'T AFFORD IT.
WE AIN'T GOTTA DO BIG THINGS, AS LONG AS WE EACH DO OUR THING, WE WILL
GET OUR COUNTRY BACK.
Allright Senator Alexander, you got a challenge, I thought Obama was talking about what to do to get jobs outside of his union friends, but he wanted to spend time patting himself on the back.....
“I’m Lamar Alexander, United States Senator from Tennessee. I’d like to talk with you for a few minutes about making it easier and cheaper to create private sector jobs here in America. We can start by helping companies make in the United States what they sell in the United States, but unfortunately recent actions by the Administration are making that hard to accomplish.
Do you see the difference in approach, the President using the weekly address as a campaign ad, he won't have to buy and right from the start, Senator Alexander, goes straight to the heart of the problem, what can we do to get the private sector back up and running. As right now, just like any other socialist administration the federal goverment is the nation's largest employers......
Always a bad sign for capitalism.......What you talking, about bro?
“Last month the National Labor Relations Board moved to stop America’s largest exporter, the Boeing Company, from building airplanes at a non-union plant in South Carolina, suggesting that a unionized American company can’t expand its operations into one of the 22 states with right-to-work laws, which protect a worker’s right to join or not to join a union. But instead of making a speech, let me tell you a story.
“The story is about a White House state dinner in February 1979, when I was governor of Tennessee. President Carter said to us, ‘Governors, go to Japan. Persuade them to make here what they sell here.’
“So, off I flew to Tokyo to meet with Nissan executives who were deciding where to put their first U.S. manufacturing plant. I carried with me a photograph taken from a satellite showing the country at night with all of its lights on.
Okay, we like stories..........I'm feeling it........
“‘Where is Tennessee?’ the Nissan executives ask. ‘Right in the middle of the lights,’ I answered, pointing out that locating a plant in the population center reduces the cost of transporting cars to customers. That population center had migrated from the Midwest, where most U.S. auto plants were then, south to places like Kentucky and Tennessee.
Okay, we getting it, thanks for the history tidbit.....
“Then the Japanese examined a second consideration: Tennessee has a right-to-work law and Kentucky does not. This meant that in Kentucky workers would have to join the United Auto Workers union. Workers in Tennessee had a choice. Well, in 1980 Nissan chose Tennessee, a state with almost no auto jobs. Today auto assembly plants and suppliers provide one-third of Tennessee’s manufacturing jobs. Tennessee is the home for production of the Leaf, Nissan’s all-electric vehicle, and the batteries that power it. And recently Nissan announced that 85% of the cars and trucks it sells in the United States will be made in the United States — making it one of the largest ‘American’ auto companies.
Well, damn senator you didn't waste anytime. You got a little gangsta with your daddy this morning. So let's break it down. First of all, because astute businessfolk are all over the world, they knew about the right to work law and which states had it and didn't. And they understood what that meant, made a committment and went to work, providing jobs.
And you address my point succintly. What is American? B/c nissian is providing jobs, while GM is using our tax dollars and putting money into Barack's SEIU fund that Andy Stern is buidling for him. We want to hold on that everything is how it used to be, but it is not. GM is not doing business all the way around in this country like Nissian, like Kia, like Benz and that needs to be addressed. Those latter companies need to be commended. They making products here, they selling them here.
“So now the NLRB and unions want to make it illegal for a company that has experienced repeated strikes to move production to a state with a right-to-work law. What would this mean for the future of American auto jobs? Well, jobs would flee overseas as manufacturers look for a competitive environment in which to make and sell their products around the world.
You know I am not to judge, but just to be on the safe side, I looked up the NLRB and of course, it is a federal agency whose mission is supposed to be. The National Labor Relations Board is an independent federal agency that protects the rights of private sector employees to join together, with or without a union, to improve their wages and working conditions. Which sounds nothing what they are up to now........
“It’s happened before. David Halberstam’s 1986 book, ‘The Reckoning’ tells a story about the decline of the domestic auto industry. Halberstam quotes the President of American Motors, who criticized the ‘shared monopoly’ consisting of the Big Three Detroit auto manufacturers in the UAW. ‘There is nothing more vulnerable than entrenched success,’ he warned. Detroit ignored upstarts like Nissan who in the 1960’s began selling funny little cars to American consumers. We all know what happened to employment in the Big Three companies.
So some folk seen this mess coming almost 30 years ago. The Big Three take the United States for granted when other car companies are putting in the work and deserve the love. I can dig it.
“Even when Detroit sought greener pastures in a right-to-work state, its ‘partnership’ with United Auto Workers couldn’t compete. In 1985, General Motors located its $5 billion Saturn plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee; just 40 miles from Nissan, hoping that side-by-side competition would help the Americans beat the Japanese. After 25 years, non-union Nissan operated the most efficient auto plant in North America. The Saturn/UAW partnership never made a profit. GM closed Saturn last year.
Do Andy Stern and Mr. Barack now about this, because in his weekly address, he didn't get to none of this........, Nissan most efficient simply letting grown people work and get issues addressed with their jobs without union interference. Who would have thunk something like that would work?
“Nissan’s success is one reason why Volkswagen last week opened its North American manufacturing plant in Chattanooga, and why Honda, and Toyota, BMW, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Hyundai and thousands of suppliers have chosen southeastern right-to-work states for their plants. According to the chief of the Boeing company: ‘An unintended consequence of the Boeing complaint is that forward thinking CEOs also would be reluctant to place new plants in unionized states — lest they be forever restricted from placing future plants across the country.’
I didn't read this before hand, here you are mentioning some of the companies I was just taking about. I have been through ATL and seen the Benz plants and stuff. I feel you. What Boeing saying is that if we try to look out for our company and profits and perserving jobs, we gotta stay out of these union states. b/c we dont want the NLRB and others to hate on us so bad, they shut us down.
“Boeing is America’s largest exporter, but we want them to export airplanes, not jobs.
“Our goal should be to make it easier and cheaper to create private-sector jobs in this country. Giving workers the right to join or not to join a union helps to create a competitive environment in which more manufacturers like Nissan and Boeing can make here what they sell here.
“I’m Lamar Alexander, thanks for listening.”
