GM Profit Motors Past Forecasts, Global Sales Rise

"General Motors (GM) stock gapped up in five times usual volume early Wednesday after it said third-quarter earnings and sales grew, and it topped earnings expectations.

Strong demand in the U.S, especially for its luxury cars and new pickups, and a smaller loss in Europe, drove earnings growth."

I'm posting this, to demonstrate the ineffectiveness of true conservatives' boycott of GM, and their oft-stated wishes for bad results at GM.

How's that strategy-tactic working? How does that strategy make conservatism look to Americans; wishing bad things for American companies and American workers?

Ever wonder why it is so easy for the media to generate negative portrayals of conservatism?

Love the one lone, cynical comment at the bottom of the article page:

"Hope they're considering paying back the $10B they owe taxpayers."

The Treasury has already booked a loss in the billions on the sale of the stock the government gave itself when it stole GM from its rightful owners.  It's sure easy to show a profit when you had all your debt cancelled for you - even though the managers and union parasites who ran that debt up were never fired or disciplined - and the government strong-arms your non-union employees for you.

I will never, ever, ever buy a Chevrolet built in 2008 or later - until and unless the present abortion goes through at least one honest bankruptcy and the unions for whom GM was stolen themselves get wiped out.
