Another Tear Jerking Article....

Besides Michael--the Detriot Free Press had another tear
jerking article about a retired Chrysler mgr.
Because of the bankrupsy filing--this poor guy will loose
22% (over $2000 ) per month of his Chrysler pension.
He said he will have to drastically cut back his lifestyle & has
filed a lawsuit against Chrysler...................
I just don't think I will be able to sleep tonight ( yea-right )
knowing that this poor guy will have to put up with a paultry
$100,000 +/- Chrysler pension per year...........
Ain't life a *****........

I have to disagree a little here, with this one. You have to remember that someone decided to work somewhere based on what they were promised to get. It is rather unexpected to see those promises renigged upon, regardless of the sum. An agreement is an agreement. If the guy would have known, he may have went to work elsewhere. Don't forget that we are a capitalistic country. Capitalism is what built this great empire. Dreamers and doers made themselves fortunes, and helped the masses (who are not smart enough or ambitious enough), by employing them.

We got us a new feerless leader---he ain't no capitalist.................
I just had to blow some steam---all my life I have lived with the auto working folks.
I finally got tired of all the " we don' get paid what we are worth"--
We work too had for the little we are paid--I actually had to pay 50cents-$1-$2 for
my medicine---we are getting screwed----It's hardly worth working for the lousey
retirement we will receive, etc. . etc. etc..............................
Well folks---the **** has hit the fan..............
Good luck.......................

They have to charge $10 for an aspirin because otherwise they'd have to charge more for something else. They need all that money because health care is more complex than it used to be. WAY more complex. Yes, there is waste - too. But besides the waste, there is way more technology than their used to be. WAY more.

I would kill for an insurance plan that I can afford that offered $10 copays on prescription drugs with more than $500 per year covered. I use the American health care plan called try not to get sick, but don't want governmnet healthcare. Downright amazing how this gov't told us Canadian drugs are unsafe, but they use rebadged versions of the same drug in VA hospitals. Could the health care plans these employees got be part of the reason American car companies are in such deep financial doggie-doo?

Nothing in this world is free---Someone, somewhere in
your country is paying for your dizzzzzzzzzzzy spell.
Maybe if you are nice to our new fearless leader & his rubber
stamp congress--they will pay it for you........
