GM Kills Another One

What's to be gained by bashing a U.S. auto manufacturer that has come forward and acknowledged a faulty ignition problem on a couple of million cars sold between 2005 and 2007. While at the same time ignoring Toyota's $1.2 billion dollar settlement and recall of over 10 million vehicles with faulty accelerators ? Truth be told, of the 15 major auto manufacturers surveyed. GM actually came out third best with only 0.65 cars and trucks recalled per unit sold since 1985 in the U.S.. And the worst in that list was Hyundai with 1.15 vehicles recalled for every model sold. Also in his attempt to undermine a U.S. automaker, John here has turned a blind eye to this little tidbit. Mar 19, 2014 ... Toyota now admits it lied to the public about two unintended acceleration issues that led to more than 37 deaths.
Calm down junior, no need for name calling. And I really hate to burst your bubble. But.... If 2014 breaks the record for the hottest year on record. That will mean 6 of the hottest years on record since record keeping began in 1880 took place over the last 19 years. And that hardly sounds like a cooling trend. Duhs' it......
Of course the Ebola outbreak isn't Bush's or the republicans fault. It's all Obama's fault. Sure his response so far has been in line with what Bush did during the Bird Flu scare. But that's not the point. And yes, the fact we don't have a Surgeon General must be Obama's fault. Even though there are apparently a few republicans out there that are unaware we don't have a S.G. Now granted Obama's choice feels that gun violence is a public health problem. But then Reagan's surgeon general C. Everett Koop felt the same way. Bush's bird flu czar and head of Health and Human Services had no medical background. But that doesn't mean we can't condemn Obama for appointing a Ebola czar that has no medical background. Boy it's SO nice being able to live by two sets of rules. One that we can make up for the republicans and another set we make up for the democrats. Both of which we can change or ignore at will.
So does this mean John Ransom has accepted the fact that the climate is changing ? That's it's getting warmer ? But that it's ok because according to Dr. Moore ( A Greenpeacer ) it won't be all that bad... Well at least we are making some progress here.
YAWN !!! So typical.... Same thing happened during the oil embargo. Saudis try to manipulate the market for one reason or another. And the very first reaction by petty partisan conservatives is to attack and blame the democratic president. Putin invades Georgia. - No reaction by conservatives. Putin invades the Ukraine. - Conservatives attack Obama. Bush gives the order to kill terrorists. - He's a hero Obama gives the order to kill terrorists. - He's attacked. Bush releases GITMO prisoners.... No reaction. Obama releases GITMO prisoners.... REACTION !!!
That's ok..... Bush's bird flu czar and head of Health and Human Services had no medical background of any sort. Just a business degree. Do you think maybe these czars seek the advice of the experts though ? You know, the experts that everyone in the media seems to be ignoring now because they aren't politicizing this, panicking and running around like chickens with their heads cut off.
Or for any other administration for that matter. The bird flu czar under Bush was also the head of Health and Human Services. And his qualifications ? A degree in business....

Baloney CptPam.... But the methods they used to try and keep it under control would not have worked in the U.S. If you actually care to inform yourself about what actions Cuba took in response to AID's you can read it here. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2688320/

Healthcare in Cuba can't be that much worse than here in the U.S. The average life expectancy for a Cuban is 79.4 years. Here in the U.S. it's 79.8. The U.S. has a higher infant mortality rate though. 6.2 vs. Cuba's 5.8 per 1,000 births. Seems to me your opinion of Cuba's healthcare system is as politically biased and wrong as Moores is of ours.

Actually ( according to the article referenced ) Only a few small island nations had outright bans on travel from effected W. African nations. And yes, it's true... Cuba has a long history dating back more than 50 years of sending medical teams around the world. They even offered to send more than 1,000 doctors and tons of medical supplies to the U.S. after Katrina. Do they really deserve to be childishly criticized for it ? Now while travel bans might seem like the best idea for those that are frightened. The experts key objections are that a ban could prevent needed medical supplies, food and health care workers from reaching the effected areas. So this president is listening to the experts, just like Bush did during the bird flu scare. And yes, even the top health official that advised Bush is opposed to a travel ban now. So why all of the petty political posturing now from Townhall.com ? Why the hypocrisy ? Can you really not figure out why the U.S. sent troops ? Have you never heard of a field hospital ? Is it that hard to understand why security might be needed ?
