Let's Go For More

Hello everyone and welcome to Thursday.

I looked at that last blog and realized that I was a little too serious so the picture of Brittany comes out drivng a '67 GTO to lighten things up.

I think we are making progress with all out contacts and our letter writing campaigns. I am equally certain that the Healthcare matter has gotten in the way of consideration of anythings else by the Administration.

As always thanks for sticking with our efforts and have a wonderful and blessed Thursday!!

I Remember Team America

Whether it was 1776, 1787, 12/7/1941, or most recently 9/11/2001 America pulled together as a team. We were destined to defeat a common enemy and problem that only was achieved through working together.

With all partisanship aside, there seem to be too many teams to count. And, what game they are trying to win. Right now the citizens of our Country seem to be saying we should focus on the economy and jobs. Our administration seems to be focused on everything else. Healthcare, Immigration, Financial reform, and Education all need focus but they do not seem to be where the electorate wants to focus. It will take determination and laser like resolve by everyone in this country to fix the economy and the jobs problems. Most importantly is how and with whom we spend our money.

Consider three recent examples of the mindset that exists and must change:

- Gm has elected to send somewhere between $2.6 billion and $3 Billion of taxpayer money to Europe for Opal's recovery and Cadillac marketing. This is taxpayer money that we need to spend in the US to help our economy!

- In February Diane Sawyer reported that: Nearly $2 billion in money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act has been spent on wind power, funding the creation of enough new wind farms to power 2.4 million homes over the past year. But the study found that nearly 80 percent of that money has gone to foreign manufacturers of wind turbines.

- Yesterday it was reported that: Hillary Rodham Clinton's State Department is spending $5.4 million to buy fine crystal stemware for American embassies -- but it won't give the US economy much of a boost. (The contract went to a Swedish Company)

Where is the dedication to spending to support America? Where is the outrage of the Unions and Government officials? If we cannot expect our Government to spend to support our American economy and the jobs in America, where do we turn? In 1941 did we ask anyone other than Americans to build tanks and aircraft carriers? After 9/11, did we ask other countries to implement The Patriot Act or repair the damage on the hallowed ground in NYC?

Let's get back to the business of America, using the American team that has pulled us through so much in the past. The economy and jobs need the team work of everyone; not just some of us. Join with us at and sign our petition to save 60,000 American jobs.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Kevin McCarthy talks Job Creation

Congressman Kevin McCarthy is actually talking about creating jobs. While we wait for action, this is one of the few politicians that is looking for ideas rather than just saying we need jobs (no kidding!).

We have contacted McCarthy's office and we would suggest those who are members here and those that are interested in creating American jobs should do the same.

His web site is . Also, please see the Newsweek article about him here: .

As we have said we are non- partisan. If a Republican or a Democrat wants to create these Pontiac jobs, we would support that effort!

Thanks to all and have a wonderful Monday and a blessed week!

More Money to Europe

I seems that General Motors forgot the purpose of the TARP funds. They were to provide stimulus at home...That is the United States of America.

In the last week, GM announced that they would commit $2.6 billion to the remake of Opal in Europe. We knew it was coming but didn't make us feel any better. Now they have announced an effort to promote Cadillac in Europe. I guess if they aren't selling in The US it makes sense to compete with BMW and Mercedes in'on man! Just more taxpayer dollars over seas. believes these amounts should be spent at home for US jobs....Don't you?

Have a wonderful, safe and blessed Monday!!

New sales figures

New GM February sales volumes are out now. ( Remember that Pontiac was judged to be a worn out brand. In the worst Auto market in a long time, last February, 2009 Pontiac sold 14,200 units. That was 229% of the Buick unit sales and 201% more than Cadillac at that time.

In February 2010 Buick sold 9,121 units which was a 47% increase over 2009. This is still only 64% of what Pontiac sold in 2009. Similarly Cadillac had a 32% increase in unit sales but yet was only 65% of Pontiac sales in 2009.

The point of this is that Pontiac is a valuable asset that has been taken away from the taxpayers who own this important brand.

Thanks to everyone and hope you had a great Wednesday!

American jobs? Not this way!

Everyone that thought the TARP funds were intended to encourage economic recovery in the United States, raise their hand! Yeah, me too.

In a stunning announcement, General Motors, has detailed a plan to triple it's commitment to Opal in Europe to a total of $2.6 Billion. This is taxpayer money spent to help America. I am trying to figure this out. (

There is a great article on The Huffington post by NYU Professor Gomory about why we need manufacturing capacity in the US. ( Did I miss the part about our tax dollars rebuilding Europe? GM has committed our taxes to India, China, and Europe while spending huge amounts to close Saturn, Pontiac, and Hummer in the US. It just seems wrong!

Thanks to everyone and have a safe and blessed Tuesday!

Happy and Blessed Monday to all!

I ran on a great article from two very distinguished writers this morning posted on (

David Walker and Lawrence Mishel run two of the most influential foundations in America. Each has, perhaps a different view on recovery, but both agree that we must create jobs now! Just what we have been saying at

Please read the article and enjoy the views of these two great scholars!

Have a wonderful Monday!
