we should all consider supporting Bill with his fight to save GM which will in turn save the employment for thousands of Americans and in turn help turn the economy around

Just a moment, are you all losing your minds?

Why would any of you want to help rebuild a corporation which, after WWII, was largely responsible for DESTROYING a planned, innovative, clean and efficient mass-transit system that would've eliminated polluting cars?

Who is William Cullifer? Do any of you know his background?

WARNING: Newsblaze doesn't fact-check information before publishing it!
In the story on Cuffler, it was reported that GM supported the American cause in WW2...THIS IS A BLATANT LIE!! GM, along with Ford, Chrysler, IBM, US Steel, Pope Pius XII, et. al., aided and abetted the The Third Reich and Hitler. GM used slave labor in their German factories...where was their patriotism then?

Hello Haudeno, you are a destroyer and you seem to be good at it!
You are attacking the messengers - me and William Cullifer.
If you listen to the interview and read the transcript, you will see that the GM employee was on a NPR interview and he talked about the B24 bomber, not us.
Buick, a division of GM built the B24 Liberator, so how is that a lie?

You seem to have a lot of US companies and NewsBlaze on your hitlist.
Are you perfect? Do you think it is OK to destroy a bunch of companies and all the people who depend on them because of something that happened 60 years ago?

You are one of those people who look at history and use knowledge gained after the fact to say that something should have been done differently, at a time that the information was not available.

And now you seek to prevent us even following a story because the GM CEO in 1934 did something? If you have a different story, go ahead and write your own.

Are you a builder or a destroyer? Hint - Being a destroyer is easy, being a builder is difficult. Choose wisely.

Alan Gray:

Uh Alan, perhaps if you, Cullifer and NPR had researched the history of GM you wouldn't be so fast with the condemnation...I'm not sure how you can misinterpret my comment by making a false accusation that I'm a "destroyer." It's rather amusing though, given that you applied A FALLACY OF EXTENSION (extending the question until arguing a different subject altogether), jn other worfd, you're trying to deflect justified criticism away from GM by turning it into an ad hominem on me!

I know my criticism of GM is justified especially given its history of:
a) unfair labor practices;
b) treasonous conduct during WW2;
c) exploitation of its workers;
d) arbitrary decision making, i.e., KILLING THE ELECTRIC CAR!
e) fiscal irresponsibility.

GM has had ample time to have made vast improvements in not only their vehicle designs, but modernizing their industrial base (infusing capital in equipment, buildings) improve worker safety, et al. And in that same time, GM repeatedly "blew off" engineering concerns, the public's growing interest in alternative (hydrogen,electric), fuel-efficient, well-designed cars.

Let's get a number of other things straight Alan: My argument has nothing to do with B-17's B-19's, B-24's or B-29 (Superfortress) or anything in between...My argument is with GM's questionable patriotism, its chronic lack of concern for anything but the QUARTERLY BOTTOM-LINE, SLASHIING BUDGETS to the bone for critical need areas...the boards tuened deaf ears to rising safety accidents, increased equipment failures, et al.

I don't care if you run a gadzillion stories about GM, my concern is the skewering of facts, the pro-business bias of you, Cullifer, NPR and NewsBlaze, and the glaring omissions of facts which the public needs to be aware so that they can ponder this issue...instead of the way in which the story is promulgated as though WE MUST DECIDE RIGHT NOW before anyone has time to choose before voting,or signing a petition...

I wouldn't presume to stop anyone from exercising their constitutional rights (unlike the Fascist Bush Administration which did destroy a civilization far older than the UK or the US, and prevent citizens from being informed about vital national security concerns that caused a rush to judgement! Mayhaps you should heed your own advice and do likewise (wisely)
