Things that hurt manufacturing....

Taxes on products. Especially large increases in them. When you raise the cost of a soda from 50 cents to 58 cents, you really hurt the sale of sodas.
Because people will be charged a rounded off amount of 60 cents and it will happen instantly, causing anger.

Promised funding for upgrades in tooling. For example, forcing a car manufacturer to retool to build a certain product(hydrogen cars) by heavy funding(free crack), then After the retooling is half thru cutting that funding off.

Funding stem cell research and OVERSEAS abortion, and NOT funding the American manufacturing base.
************************
Tax cuts of approx 20 dollars a week to the average poor family, and tax increases to the small business owners who take chances, create jobs and die of heart disease from stress! Oh by the way, we meant 235 grand a family, not 250, but everyone knew what we meant. That was a quote by the way I heard last week!
************************
Drug testing. YAH I SAID IT! Screw you goody two shoes! And for those confused I quit a long time ago so go FU! Drug testing filters out free thinkers, it zooms in on pot alone. Pills, which in my book hurts creative thinking because they are addictive, ALL OF THEM, isn't effected by drug tests, neither is cocaine usage, heroin, or any other addictive drug, they leave the body withing 48 hrs. It's a raquet!
If you don't agree I suggest you read some Edgar Allen Poe.
***********************
Regulation. Screw regulation. The American worker in the past has banded together and created unions to counter abuse. It's called free market control. Unions used to have a damn purpose.
************************
Health insurance. When the hell did it become the responsibilty of the employer to worry about the well being of a mans family... Oh wait, I know.... When a good man meant something, it meant the difference between sucess and failure. So the companies offered whatever the "valuable worker" really wanted as incentive to work there and not somewhere else. On Saturday night live in the 70's it meant free pain killers called crackers. (it was a skit calm down) NOW, employers must do it, they all must do it.
***********************
Spending money fixing roads that dont need fixed. Stimulus spending. Those people need to be taught construction is a shitty job, not a good job. Smart people doing road construction is a literal sin!

bailing out buisinesses to big to fail. NOBODY is too big to fail! If you suck...fail. Go the frig away! The whole country is littered with companies small enough to fail. Drive around, it's a country of empty buildings. But they supported families just like the big boys. If we don't let the weak fail the hurd will DIE as a whole. But then again, nature doesn't work, it's only been in buisiness for "200 million years" or "5000 years" depending on your screwed up brainwashed beliefs.

" Of the 3 million vehicles GM sold in the U.S. last year, it imported the Chevrolet Aveo and Pontiac G3 subcompacts from South Korea, the Pontiac G8 muscle car from Australia and the Saturn Astra compact from Belgium. The Saturn Vue, Chevrolet HHR small sport utility vehicles and several pickup truck models were imported from Mexico. Full-size pickup trucks, several sedans and small SUVs and the Chevrolet Camaro were brought in from Canada."
Mebbe this explains why reliability of """GM""" cars is improving!!
Squandering gummint/taxpayer charity, to import cars!
All these mega CorPirations must have prison con men on their boards, to figger out how to *constantly* screw the people they deal with.
Oh, oh, silly me, they DO, they're called "lawyers", and "MBAs".....
This concession thing: I would only go for it if management made concessions at a substantially higher proportion.
If my net was being cut 20%, I would want to see all these hot shot muthafuckas cut 50-75%. Hmmm, gee, poor baby "earning" $7.5 mil a year just might positively waste away at $2.5 mil a year....
How bout those $100 mil packages?
Let these muthafuckas lead by example.
If people had brains that worked, they would never buy from companies where such huge proportions of income were siphoned off to so few -- which is the nature of an IPO, all pubically-traded companies.
The Russians had it right, had the balls: Burn your own towns, so the invaders have nothing use, eat, live in.
I'll live in a cave, just to see all these muthafuckas swing from ropes.
I'd cut off a digit or two to crank the handle that opens the trap door.
AND, I wouldn't put hoods on these muthafuckas either.
Better: dangle them upside-down, that way it takes 24-48 hours -- naked.
Ohhh, ahm gettin too excited over here....

I'm trying to point out we are on a tax rise across the board. On one hand we are told taxes will go down, all the while outspending George Bush in 100 days? That money does not just materialize out of thin air, it's supported by tax revenue. If you look back at the great roosevelt, mr new deal himslf, you'll find during his admin the largest tax increases of all time were established and still with us to this day. This stuff never goes away. I used the "sweetened drink" tax as an example, but all you will hear about is cigarette taxes, because people tolerate that. Roosevelt established taxes on everything.
What is wrong with America? Why are we letting them get a larger and larger piece of the pie? Are you aware how much sweetened drink products we export? We already couldn't compete and now we have to charge 8% more?
Tax on soda, who cares. Well hell I do! We already pay sales tax on the crap? We already are taxed on our paychecks where we get the money to buy the soda. The trucks who deliver the stuff is taxed. The services the dentists do to fix your cavities caused by the drinks is taxed. And when you die they will tax whatever you had left.
I bet half of what we make in some way goes to taxes. Does anybody know the tax on tea that prompted them to dump the shit in the harbor at the tea party?
TEA = Taxed enough already.

Five years ago B&O taxes in Seattle were around 38%. Now they're up to about 55%. I hope it won't be too much longer before this shop gets a new address.

On May 14, 10:52 am, "Proctologically Violated"

That's just the state slice, and I probably shouldn't say B&O when it's everything together. It's just gone up a lot in the last few years.

A certain party currently in vogue likes taxing manufacturers since the party I refered to thinks the people that elected them are too stupid to figure corporate taxes are trickle down taxes on the individule.
