New plans for GM

Interests, Life

I usually hat Michael Moore. Not that he dosen’t make some entertaining documentaries about important subjects, but he’s just an enormous ass.

Now we can do it again, from cars to…

Just as President Roosevelt did after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the president must tell the nation that we are at war and we must immediately convert our auto factories to factories that build mass-transit vehicles and alternative-energy devices. Within months in Flint in 1942, GM halted all car production and immediately used the assembly lines to build planes, tanks, and machine guns. The conversion took no time at all. Everyone pitched in. The fascists were defeated
