The Future of the American Automobile Industry

I stumbled onto this prognostication by Iowahawk as to the cars that'll go into production by model year 2012, after the government bailout, the enactment of the conditions therein contained, the mergers and the final nationalization and takeover by the federal government.

Fortunately, there's nothing dramatic or unexpected in this forecast: the auto industry has been headed in this direction for a couple of decades now.

We can only thank the environazis and the algorians for the more simplified lives, with the accompanying lessening of our ability to understand overly complicated and unfathomable technology, that make life so difficult for those of us who find ourselves lost in the maze of working, making plenty of money to feed, clothe and shelter ourselves comfortably for eighty or ninety interminable years.

The Pelosi. What a wonderful testimony to the individual whose planning promises to remove us from all that tedious complexity and stress.

Tip of the battered old fedora to Michelle Malkin for the link.

Trust your government; it was elected by the most mediocre among us.

LOL, that was funny. And I started LOL right when Lisa was beating the boy for homework related issues. Bad timing.

Interesting post at TWC about how South American auto operations have been carrying the Big 3 and how UAW won't stand for the kinds of innovation that make that possible.

Well, let's hope she doesn't leave any marks.

I read that post. I hope that any restructuring of the auto corps(e) includes a way to put an end to union thuggery (fat chance). That Brazilian auto factory is downright pretty!
