As Goes GM

I know a woman who is relentlessly, ridiculously optimistic. Everything is always for the best.

Broken arm: “at least I did not break the other!” Sick parents, lost jobs: “it could be so much worse - it could all happen at once.” Now that it is all happening at the same time? “Well, at least that way we get all the bad things done at once and can move on.”

Today she and her whole family came down with Swine Flu. “So much better to get this new strain of virus now to build up immunity. Who is to say what next year’s strain will be like?”

I am not sure what she would say about GM, but let me imagine.

Better for Chrysler and GM to fail in one year so we cannot pretend we have an automotive industry in the US and can start building up other industries. Better to have our Chrysler cars serviced by Fiat dealers - they got so used to fixing finicky cars that they are pros by now and should do a great job.

Any other suggestions for absurd optimism?

I’ll also take absurd pessimism, too.

    Absurd optimism as well as absurd pessimism are available from any of the media outlets.

    What is in short supply is reasonable expectations and predictions.

    And if the poor economy doesn’t do in what is left of the auto industry, Obama’s new CAFE requirements certainly will!

    Prior to making a determination which real estate brokerage to make use
    of, find out how they negotiate. Request what kind of coaching and encounter they may have.
    You also want to look at the ways they utilize and make certain they are ethical when doing enterprise.

    Ask to find out the broker’s portfolio. He should certainly supply you types of profitable discussions. Also question the dealer to give you an example of an unsuccessful negotiation and make clear what he discovered in the practical experience.

However think of if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Excellent blog!| Jasa Import Barang

    I’d love to retire where air conditioning is not needed, and a dog park with benches is nearby.
