Michigan: Im Feeling Nostalgic...and Angry

So as most know i have alota time on my hands,Well im on here to much still recovering from many issues. And i came across This website http://www.coachbuilt.com/ And Most of these Coach Company's were in Michigan...1000s of them, Michigan was Booming an Icon in the Manufacturing WORLD!

And now We are Disrespected and Can Hardly Keep our Heads above Water The Big Three is Basically The big ZERO now Govt Ran,and our cars and trucks are being built in Foreign Countries and The foreign cars are being Built Stateside...WTF is wrong with this picture.

I love the New Camaro the Designers did a Great Job...But not Happy at all with where its built.and i cringe to think where many of the parts come from and made. Michigan has the Highest Unemployment Rate,people are moving away from here in droves and i don't think anyone who matters cares.Well no one who can make a Difference

But back to the Auto Industry. For all of you who love cars but don't think twice about Loyalty Know this in the US you wouldn't be driving your Bad ass Car if it wasn't for MICHIGAN The car Capital of the world For those of you with a mixture of Imports and Domestic in your stables well your just despicable.

Im having a really hard time seeing the auto Industry Recovering or even Michigan for that matter.And it greatly saddens me I love this state!

Im Just disgusted in people!

Wisconsin isn't much better.....Kenosha, former home to American Motors, then a Chrysler division, now gone.... And the Janesville Tahoe and Suburban plant....shutting the doors.

Our State Government stands by and watches.....and many many other manufacturers leaving for the third world, the south, Mexico....

Wisconsin - not where you want to be....anymore.

While I can see the frustration, you need to see the bigger picture. Cars are commodities, just like TVs and stereos when you break it down. It is next to impossible to furnish your home 100% with items produced, assembled in the USA. You make the best choices with what you have to work with
