Does this mean we get our money back from GM now?

So ...

Iran can build nuclear reactors...but we can't

Brazil can drill for offshore oil...but we can't

China can build/sell Hummers...but we can't

Notice a pattern?

The Canadian Supreme Court has ruled that Canadians can buy private insurance and seek medical care outside Canada's nationalized system ... but soon we might not be able to.

AM General has made it, but I'm not sure if they have the current contract.

This is great. The Chinese Army is going have Humvee troop carriers just like our troops do.

Thanks to you Obama — you dumb idiot !

I notice a pattern. In each case, the government is taking away the freedom of Americans to engage in economic activity.

um... here we go again.. American taxpayers bail out an American company who then just sells itself to some foreign company.

I don’t get it, I thought the bailout was suppose to save AMERICAN companies?

1. Completely different. “Hummer” is the civilian brand name given to standard Chevy trucks that have a military-looking body on them. The name is intended to capitalize off of the military vehicle’s image, but contains no similar components or design. AM General makes the “HMMWV” (Humvee/High Mobility Multi-purpose Wheeled Vehicle) for the US armed forces and others.

2. The Chinese have already copied the HMMWV. You wouldn’t believe how close in looks. Probably still has shitty commie structure and components, though.

On the energy efficiency side, each Hummer will serve as a bus out in the countryside carrying upto 50 Chinese at one go!

I just hope all the UAW jobs at GM’s Hummer factories leave the USA with the Hummer. I doubt the Chinese will try to run any factories here.

The UAW voted for Hope & Change.
