Come and listen to a story 'bout a man named Jed Poor oil entrepreneur barely kept his family fed Then one day he was working for some food, And up through the crowd come a bumbling fool (Arnold that is, RINO gold, more taxes please)
Well the first thing you know old Jed's taxes are to much to bear, Kin folk said Jed move away from there! Said California is no place for you to be So they loaded up the truck and they moved from Beverly (gon back to the Hills they are, fishn holes, country and western stars)
Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin They would like to thank you folks for kindly dropping in You're all invited back again to their new locality To have a heaping helping of their hospitality (Redneck Hillbillies, is what the press call 'em now, Clingers of bibles and guns and to Obama no bow! Nice folks Y'all come back now, ya hear?)
California is shifting the tax brackets, raising peoples taxes of course.
I remember the Chevy/Toyota “Nova” that came out of that plant when it first opened.
Did you write that? It’s quite clever. Nicely done!
Hope and Change!
LoL!! good one.
arent they closing it because they dont want the UAW shoved down their throats or something?
I wish they'd relocate it to Nevada.
I can’t not tell a lie, yes I did it! ;-)
Another blow to CA. Several thousand more jobs down the drain and the last car plant in CA closed.
I thought GM already pulled out of the partnership with Toyota in June?
I'd run as far and fast as i could away from that situation too. It's not what they originally signed up for.
Would you want your backdoor open to Obama's Marxists long slithering arms reaching in? Nope! not me!
Toyoya is going to move their operation to the existing plant in San Antonio. The Tundra sales suck more than obammas cash for hags, I mean health care plan.
yeah no kidding
and i think part of that was the Union being forced on them through as you so eloquently put it Government Motors new terms
I bought one in ‘86 and was very happy with it. I retired it after 14 years and 275,000 miles. No major repairs and it ran like a trooper the entire time.
So is the NUMMI name dead?
Let’s see how long the Terminator lasts when he can’t get any spare parts because they all moved to low tax states.
NUMMI has been UAW since day 1.
My feeling is that this plant is logistically out of the loop.
It’s far away from most all suppliers.
The cost of doing business in Calif is most likely among the highest in the US which doesn’t help.
Wave hi to Nancy Pelosi on your way out the last day of work. Solidarity forever!
CALIFORNIA WON’T SLIDE INTO THE OCEAN. It will slide into oblivion.......................
