You folks are a fickle lot.
In October and November when I was writing, and reporting on Michigan Proposal 1, whether to make Medical marijuana legal or not in Michigan, you were flocking here in droves.
And I know that a lot of that had to do with where I was ranking on the search engines. But I thought some of you would stick around.
Now that I am watching what is happening with the auto industry in Michigan I am finding much less interest. That is concerning, as much as it is amusing.
Concerning in that I hope that there is not an apathy as to the health or the demise of the auto makers in Detroit. If they go under there will be up to 3 million folks in the unemployment lines. And those lines can’t hold too many more.
Amusing in that, well. Just follow the train on thought.
So stick around kids. We will have fun along with the real stuff. I promise.
Sorry about the absence. It all has to do with a cold that I caught before Christmas and just has had the temerity to linger and not leave.
Toss in a few Nyquil fueled dreams, and you can figure out where my focus has been. Certainly not in writing anything that has been lumbering around in my head. Unless you are interested in OTC drug dreams.
Back to it.
In following what is happening in my home state of Michigan I came across this little tidbit last week. The UAW and GM are meeting for contract talks.
Now doesn’t that send chills down your spine?
Just when the state, hell the nation, needs for things to go without a hitch for the Big 3 Automakers you have to toss in a contract negotiation.
The UAW has a no strike clause in their current contract. That contract expires in September of 2011. GM and Chrysler have until December of 2011 to pay back the loans that they received from the Federal Government. Which leaves everyone in a weird situation.
The UAW and the car companies have got to come out of these negotiations with a plan to keep the companies whole, and healthy.
Anything less, any petty bickering will kill them all.
In my opinion.
