Readers, here’s a link to a new web site by a retired auto worker. He put up this site in response to Senator Richard Shelby, senator from Alabama and ranking Republican on the Senate Banking Committee, who with the support of a few other southern senators, killed the assistance plan for the auto industry. Unless President Bush intervenes by freeing up TARP funds to help the automakers, Senator Shelby may very well have played the role of “Doctor Kevorkian” in assisting the suicide of the American economy.
Once you get to the site, click on the “take action” tab. There you will find instructions for contacting Senator Shelby and the Alabama Chamber of Commerce. I’ve already done so, informing them of my disappointment with Senator Shelby and my support for the boycott.
It’s time to start exercising our economic clout to punish those who champion the destruction of American jobs and wages. Please join me in supporting this cause and forward links to your friends and relatives. Encourage them to support it as well.
