DETROIT (Reuters) – General Motors Corp has told U.S. dealers it is accelerating its timetable for closing about 1,700 dealerships as it rushes to meet a June 1 deadline to restructure under U.S. government oversight, people with knowledge of the discussions said.

At just 30 employees per dealership, that is over 50K workers.

And that is GM alone......

Is anyone connecting the dots??????  The picture seems clear.

Prepare....Don't Fear.

And you thought the tax protests were news????

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Board of Education has voted to lay off as many as 5,400 teachers and support personnel for the upcoming school year.

The vote came Tuesday as employees protested raucously outside the meeting. The board had voted hours earlier to save the jobs of 1,996 elementary school teachers using federal stimulus funds.

What if people start protesting for food????

As distress increases, do you think commentaries like this will be more common......

America is devolving into a third-world nation. And if we do not immediately halt our elite’s rapacious looting of the public treasury we will be left with trillions in debts, which can never be repaid, and widespread human misery which we will be helpless to ameliorate. Our anemic democracy will be replaced with a robust national police state. The elite will withdraw into heavily guarded gated communities where they will have access to security, goods and services that cannot be afforded by the rest of us. Tens of millions of people, brutally controlled, will live in perpetual poverty. This is the inevitable result of unchecked corporate capitalism. The stimulus and bailout plans are not about saving us. They are about saving them. We can resist, which means street protests, disruptions of the system and demonstrations, or become serfs.

hahaha I am a driving instructor in West Los Angeles ( it's a very interesting and eye-opening part-time jobs) and I already see these gated communities where some people (founder of equinox gym) who have waterfalls in their back yards that you can never see even from outside.

There are some hidden gated communities that I have never seen and I ve been living in this area for almost 20 years.

I have met students who sleep on 120,000 dollar matresses. I had students who get a brand new porsche or a souped up Audi as their first car.

I had a student whose father gave me a 250,000 dollar check by mistake and it cashed (I gave the money back of course, I mean I was forced to) 

I had students who lived in a huge mansion that was rented and the rent was 180,000 a month so that their new house would get a million dollar facelift.

I had students whose father forgot to take out 20 million dollar from his bank account before Indi bank was busted and he lost the money and didn't care.

I had a student whose father gave me 7000 in tips. All cash in 1000 bills.

I mean come on...this goes on and on...and I make 12 bucks/hour.

Not because I am not educated..i have 3 degrees 1 of them from UCLA. It's not that I'm not experienced, I had a clothing company or 7 years that I started with 2000 bucks and had sales of 2 million after 4 years. It's not that I am not worldly. I was born in Iran, grew up in Germany, speak German, French, Farsi and some English.

No... I make 12 bucks and hour because I wasn't born a winner and I never had the connections.

So...we take it in the you know what and the rich go on with their lives..and there is NOTHING we can do.
