    Because the people in the UAW represent the "poster children" of these entitlement-minded morons that are ruining our state and our country. They believe that they are entitled to be paid a king's ransom for a job that a monkey can do for no other reason than the fact that they're Americans and they have a union, they believe that the only basis for promotion in any company is seniority (never mind if the guy who has seniority is basically a slug who shows up for work and his competition is motivated, a good communicator, has leadership ability, and has made her part of the shop better; the slug gets the nod) and they're also conditioned to do the absolute minimum in order to get by so they don't make any other union workers look bad. And they have the unmitigated gall to blame the executives for the plight of the Big Three and the engineers for the crappy cars? Uh, excuse me, but when a wiring truss gets bolted to the frame of the car and it causes the electrical system in the car to short out repeatedly (been there, done that, got the repair invoice to prove it) that's NOT a design problem. Or, when the seal on a water pump goes at 20,000 miles and come to find out not one, not two, but THREE of the bolts that hold the water pump in were cross-threaded, that's NOT a design problem. You know, if I didn't have to work full-time I'd be out at my local Ford or GM plant every day at shift change pelting those @$$holes with rotten tomatoes, and if it wasn't against the law I'd be burning every UAW local office to the ground. I hate to say this, but I hope the Big Three goes under if only to get rid of the freakin' United Auto Whiners.

    P.S.: The ill-informed individuals here who say "Buy American" need to wake up and get with the new millenium. There is no such thing as brand loyalty anymore, and your faux patriotism smacks of ignorance. Americans don't need to buy more American cars; the members of the UAW need to get real and stop demanding life in the lap of luxury for doing a job that doesn't even require an 8th grade education, especially when it's clear to every non-union person in THIS state that the people putting American cars together don't give a $h!t and take zero pride in their work. If justice were allowed to prevail every union member would be fired and replaced by American workers who would work for a heck of a lot less, do a heck of a lot better job, and would be THANKFUL to be employed!!!

    You are really delusional for one who lives in Michigan. People who drive foreign cars are in essence making the state of Michigan a ghost town. You really needed to elaborate more on this supposed incident. Where did it take place? How many cars were involved? Is there an American auto plant near by that has lost a ton of workers and is in danger of closing or has closed? People take it personally when it means supporting their families. Keying a car, while breaking the law, seems far less a "crime" then buying a foreign car in the first place. Buy American!

    I think it's a matter of livelihood. Mark Twain had an African American character named Puddin' head Wilson, who once said, "You tell me where a man git his cornpone from, and I'll tell you what his 'pinions is." And I also heard that there is an old saying in China that goes as follows, "Whatever you do, don't disturb any rice bowls." I'm sorry to see it happening, since it is very childish, but I also believe that American auto makers turn out quite good products that many Americans simply will not buy for who knows what reasons. You explain it to me, please.

    LOL from Michigan ...they key the cars because they are built better and last longer and people buy them instead of ones built in the states. People think that the imports are taking their job away when in reality if the american cars were built as good and priced to sell people would buy those instead.

    And you also have that percentage of jerks like the previous poster that are just ignorant.

    many times eating places provide loose parking for the individuals who are available in to eat. now to not park over nighttime. pass to artwork somewhat early sometime so that you'll ask them at Burger King in the adventure that they allow you to park for that length of time. in elementary words talk to the govt. no longer only an worker who particularly would not care. also received't the most secure position to park, you may want to come decrease back to discover damaged window and stuff stolen. or possibly even automobile lengthy gone as no longer in secure spot over nighttime. My automobile were given damaged into the different nighttime top in my parking stall at homestead. only happy they used something to pop lock and did not damage the window out. lost about $15. in change i exploit for parking downtown, no longer something else. If the govt. says its alright to park there ask him if he does no longer innovations providing you with written permission so if it receives towed you received't ought to pay. noticeably if it were given towed on the first nighttime and your lengthy gone per week it's going to fee you a kit to get it out of impound. placed a club on the guidance wheel maximum individuals received't attempt to scouse borrow it then. sturdy success.

    Your location says it all!! Detroit is MOTOR CITY. Hit hardest by the slump in new car sales. Why?... Because of the foreign car market. Ford, GM, and Mopar all have slashed employees to save money. Buy an American car that'll solve your problem. WHERES YOUR PRIDE? Shame shame

    Because, these people are what we call Ignorant. I shall make a phrase that would revert to there type of language. "We Ain't go No reason to dun like dem cars dat aren't made rite hair in the U ESS OF A, shoot boy". That's just a mere example to what comes from ignorant people in todays society. They feel like there standing up for something, when sadly they are just making everyone in that area look like a bunch of fricken ridiculous idiotic people.

    It is interesting that you bring this up. I think that you are being keyed for something you said or did to someone else. You car is keyed and the one next ot it wasn't. You just may have a stalker.

    Frankly I haven't seen that behavior, but then again I'm not in MI.

    I suppose because they see it as a threat to their livelihood.
