What????? None of that made any sense.

He's right. GM was bailed out because of the UAW, not because they are necessary.

Absolutely right. Had GM been allowed to go bankrupt last year, they would have been released from their crippling UAW contracts, and would have reorganized to be a much stronger company today; instead Obama paid back his union contributors, and has assumed control of GM; it will probably never be the same again. BTW, anti-union is NOT anti-worker.

I know that my reply was slightly off topic for this thread but it is arguably relevant to ANY discussion on this forum.

Thank you moderators for NOT moving this thread to some obscure place where nobody will read it.

JMRKAV, My intent is not to insult or offend you or anyone else with my comments. Apparently others have reached similar conclutions as mine. It's tempting to make inflamatory responses such as yours in leu of taking the time to think about the substance of the discussion. Too many times replies like yours are thrown out by those who seek only an emotionally charged response so that they may then engage in some name calling rant.
I.E. suggesting that I don't live in the same reality that you and everyone else does ( Gated Community)Or that I'm unpatriotic (sending my $ overseas)

I've been down that road before.....

QUESTION:

What's the difference if I buy a Toyota and the sales dollars support American families with some of those dollars going overseas Or If I buy a GM product which supports American families and none of those dollars go overseas???

ANSWER:

A)The difference is that in buying the "American product" some of the sales dollars go to support the UAW and in turn support the DUDS in DC who then piss it away and have to sell our debt to folks like the Chineese who would be very happy to financially control our country and in turn YOU and ME!

B)The sales dollars that go tho the Japanese get reinvested in new production facilities, like the Tundra plant in Texas, and employ humdreds of American workers!

"B" is how our system SHOULD work but it dosen't. Instead we have "A", it's broke!
Continue to support it in it's current state and it will continue to stay broke



I deal with American businesses, mostly manufacturing, for a living. I've seen first hand how the situation that I've described hurts the businesses and the American workers who work for them.

I would ask that instead of getting mad think about the situation at hand take some time to think about it and you will be able to connect the same dots that I and others have connected.
I learned a long time ago that just because somebody is telling me something that I don't like hearing doesn't necessarily mean that it isn't true. The sooner you can see a situation for what it is, the sooner you can take corrective action. The DUDS in DC count on people keeping their heads in the sand and refusing to look ant further than at the surface.

Supporting something based only on what you think it represents is shortchanging your own intelligence.Buying on brand loyalty is foolish. The Blue Oval guys kept buying on brand loyalty for years and look at what it got them.... The 6.0L Powerstroke. Widely regarded as a "problematic" engine. But they kept buying so Ford kept giving them what they wanted.

I just used Toyota as an example but if they make a better mousetrap......
That will only force the others to change or die.

Likewise if you choose to send your sales dollars to support an organization who does NOT propagate the kind of back door corruption that our beloved UAW has come to represent then they will have to change or die.

We need to keep this going.

How can we get it moved to a place of higher visibility on this forum??

I too am a diesel tech, and own a 2002 LB7, and I find a pyrometer very handy when I am towing in the rocky mountains here in colorado. I beg to differ and think an egt is essential, I only run 65 extra horsepower and once forgot to remove the grille cover on a 35 degree day and watched the egt bury itself and I quickly removed the cover and everything went back to normal. So i believe even in stock or close to it you could damage a turbo when towing under the right conditions.
