It is not too late to save the Big Three. But the solution is not to tear down the historic and heroic gains won by prior generations of UAW workers. If there is hope long term -- for the unionized Big Three companies and for the UAW -- it rests in dealing with the unfinished business of the 1980s: unionizing the unorganized transplants.

There are a few factories that have not yet relocated to China. Lets get’em.
The person who wrote this article strikes me as either:
a) a useless, conniving, free-loading, Socilaist union official, OR
b) a moron.
Way to go, LA Times. You’re bankrupt, cannot make a buck to save your liberal lives...and your best suggestion is for the unions to complete their bankrupting of all auto production in the US.
Keep it up. There’s a reason that journalism is for bottom feeders.
Unlike “The Big 3”, Toyota, Honda, BMW, Mercedes, Nissan, KIA and Hyundai can all pack up and go home and take those jobs to people who’ll appreciate them...............
Umm, the Freedom of Choice Act is the abortion thing. You mean the Employee Free Choice Act.

The priority for the right is to get a multitude of new communicators - people with charisma, good speaking skill, and common sense thinking - and get them out on television on on the web everywhere. We do not need to worry about who is running in 2112. We just need to fill the airwaves with a coherent alternative to this leftism. It has been notably absent for 10 years, since Newt and the gang left the stage.
