Marines driven out of UAW lot

for having Bush bumper stickers?

Can you say asinine? I knew ya' could!

"While reservists certainly have the right to drive nonunion made vehicles and display bumper stickers touting the most anti-worker, anti-union president since the 1920s, that doesn't mean they have the right to park in a lot owned by the members of the UAW," the union said in a statement released Friday.

Great, leave it to the unions to segregate free speech. I thought it was us Repugs to try and silence people.

Sorry, I forgot, we're talking about the Maybe if American car companies could produce something worth while people wouldn't drive the most dependable vehicles on the road. Maybe it's the American car companies that haven't been "always faithful" (Semper Fidelis)? Here's some data on that:
Lower score is better:
1. Lexus - Japanese
2. Buick - Who drives a buick?
3. Infiniti - Japanese
4. Lincoln - Who can afford a Lincoln?
5. Cadillac - Repeat the Lincoln line.
6. Honda - Japanese
7. Acura - Japanese
8. Toyota - Japanese (seeing the pattern yet?)
9. Mercury - Crazy 'bout a Mercury? Me neither.
10. Porsche - Porsche is more reliable than a Ford, GMC or Chevrolet?

Anyone surprised by the list? I'm not. Both the Focus I now own and the Escort I used to own, both new, came defect free. Both had to be taken into Ford for repairs before the 36,000 mile mark. They also had several factory recalls for various things as well.

I'll start supporting the UAW when they start supporting me again. THe Marine commander, Lt. Col. Joe Rutledge or the 1st Battalion 24th Marines feels similarly:
"You either support the Marines or you don't," said Lt. Col. Joe Rutledge, commanding officer of the battalion's active duty instructors. "I'm telling my Marines that they're no longer parking there."

It's okay Col. they stopped supporting the U.S. many years ago.
