News flash kool aid boy.. GM is primed for another bailoutand terrorists are on the rise. Barry doesn't say much for on the job training. Get this socialist dunce out of here. We need a man in the white house.
Gawd you really are a fvcking idiot.
Here are a few points worth highlighting that notably contrast with the conventional narrative of the terrorist threat:
The total number of worldwide attacks in 2011 dropped by almost 12 percent from 2010 and nearly 29 percent from 2007.
There was a sharp decline in attacks by al-Qa'ida in Iraq (AQI) and a smaller decline in attacks by al-Qâida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and al-Qâida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM).
Of the 13,288 people killed by terrorist attacks last year, seventeen were private U.S. citizens, or .1 percent.
According to the report, the number of U.S. citizens who died in terrorist attacks decreased by two between 2010 and 2011; overall, a comparable number of Americans are crushed to death by their televisions or furniture each year. This is not to diminish the real "albeit shrinking" threat of terrorism, or to minimize the loss and suffering of the 13,000 killed and over 45,000 injured around the world. For Americans, however, it should emphasize that an irrational fear of terrorism is both unwarranted and a poor basis for public policy decisions.
General Motors racked up its most profitable year ever, earning more than $7 billion.
As GM wraps up 2012, its stock is up 16% year-to-date. Those returns aren't setting the world on fire, but they are encouraging for GM shareholders. More importantly, there are people on Wall Street talking about GM shares finally climbing above $30 a share in 2013.
GM is still underwater, despite Obama's handing large chunks of the company to the unions.
