Obama Discusses The Economy, Jobs, And Other Stuff - Live Webcast

Tyler Durden's picture

Today's "do a shot" keywords of choice: "jobs", "congress", "economy", "fair", "speculators", "pass this bill", "cash for clunkers", "Stuxnet", "Solyndra" and "sugar drinks". Obviously, if we have any readers left alive after this sermon, it will be a victory for the bulls.

'The car manufactoring industry has come roaring back?'

Pardon me?

YEa - Ask the GM workers from the plant in Ontario whos CAW President has just announced this afternoon to his membership that 2,000 jobs are being axed in June 2013.

They are cancelling the Equinox and Impala lines.

Thanks to Tyler and ZH for showing us the real numbers and how all that GM stuffing manipulation/perversion works.

Had to give you a Red Arrow down, BLOTTO. 

What you said was incorrect. They will be shuttering some, if not all production in the Oshwa plant, that is true. But the Equinox and Impala lines are not being "cancelled". Those two vehicles will have their production transfered to flex plants in the U.S. Most likely Hamtramack (Spelling?) and the Equinox is being transfered to Spring Hill.

You can thank a not so kind exchange rate as well as the plant itself being dated/non Flex.

There is still an over-capacity problem, especially in Europe (that will eventually become a bloodbath), it isn't as bad as it once was but there will be some more consolidation up ahead for all manufactures around the globe.


But I'm totally with you on thanking ZH for cutting through the channel stuffing and inventory B.S. It's fun when you get to peak behind the curtain.

They're busy working their third job at McDonald's to pay their 200k school loans for their communication degrees (minored in Twitter).

"fuck, i skipped my lunch break for this"...

Shocker's picture

Yup, Good work.

The number that are reported are what they are. We know the economy is weak but what can be done to turn it around?



slaughterer's picture

A little light humor..

some remarks about football...

praise for the "outstanding senators"--"outstanding congressional delegation"

all "in the house"...

some wise-guy chuckles

some stories about "folks" he has talked about the "tough economy"

UH oH,

I am startign to get Zucked up!

The interest on national debt that Americans will pay for generations to come is nothing compared to how much laughter will be generated by teaching Obamanomics at the Harvard Business School.

I would rather watch paint dry than listen to the Pres bloviate about that which he has no clue.

pods's picture

I would rather watch you watch paint dry than listen to him.

NotApplicable's picture

Do you realize you're insinuating that AlaricBalth is even less intersting than drying paint with that comment? ;-)

SWCroaker's picture

He meant well.  Was just bein' honest..

XitSam's picture

They were chanting "4 more years".  I think 12 years of the Bush policies would be enough.

NotApplicable's picture

So... did Soros moon the camera again?

Sad thing is Romney has that same model toilet.

Both got it as a campaign contribution from Wall Street, gold plated and installed for free.

Having programs to convert military skills into civilian certifications actually makes sense. We'll see how the actual implementation goes, but it's hard to argue that if someone is a combat medic, they should be able to transfer into being an EMT without having to start from the beginning again.

pods's picture

That would work for MPs too.  Of course, seems to be no shortage of jack boots in my neck of the woods.

UP Forester's picture

And yet, the largest segment of the military are, and will be, combat forces.

So, can he tell us how killing people and breaking shit translates to any civilian jobs other than Krugman's window breakers?

spdrdr's picture

Nightclub bouncers, maybe?

ebworthen's picture

And no coincidence that the J.P. Morgue is actively recruiting combat veterans.
