The United States Senate to the Workers of Michigan: Pound Sand

Thanks, guys.

This is a photograph of Ford's Willow Run Assembly Plant near Detroit, where, at the height of World War II, the United Auto Workers produced one, complete, flight-ready B-24 Liberator Bomber per hour; 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

They made so many airplanes, so fast, the government couldn't find enough trained flight crews to fly them away.

The next time the Free World needs production like that, don't come knocking on our door. Ask your buddies, the hedge fund managers and Wall Street bankers.

Any of you Senators running for President in four years, eight, twelve years?

Ugh. If we let the south secede, will it take its senators with it?

Out here on Dream Coast-East, I can tell you that no one cares about Michigan or the auto industry. Not even the liberals who continually spout off about the need to unionize service industries and the international labor force. For months, you haven't been able to walk around here without tripping over an expert panel discussing the financial industry crisis, but there has been exactly one discussion of the auto industry, scheduled during a class period two weeks before finals.

We're on our own.

I guess we can just let China build our cars and our weaponry. They did such a good job on the dog food.
