Oh, just shut the hell up

So, I've got the news on behind me, and it's the CAW rally.

It's amazing to see so many people blinded by their leadership. It's like watching a tobacco growers rally. They just don't get it.

Unfair trade? Whatever. If you can't produce a vehicle that competes, it's your problem. If you produce a vehicle that nobody wants, it's your problem. If all you produce gas guzzling shit-boxes, and the market doesn't want gas guzzling shit-boxes, yet you continue to produce gas guzzling shit-boxes, it's your problem. If the CAW workers are either that blind or that delusional to buy into the rhetoric, it's their problem.

The other arguments? Solid.

The collective agreement? GM signed a contract. They should uphold that contract. It's ethical. It's moral. It's the law. Closing the best plant the company has doesn't make any sense.

Shipping jobs off to Mexico? Okay, closing the best plant the company has just made sense. Nice obvious move GM.

The feds sabotaging industry? You bet. The various unions in Ontario should pursue a class action suit against Flaherty for the billions of dollars lost that his words have cost.

Otherwise... just shut the hell up.
