I heard on the news about an hour ago that the number is higher than expected and is closer to 35,000 people who decided to accept the buyout.

Somebody fill me in on the rex/gm connection. I must have missed it.

I am not completely sure of the connection, but I will take a stab at it. If the economy is doing so well under the POTUS, who we all know Rex loves like family, then why would a company have to reduce so many emplyees in order to be able to compete?

His father is a long-time GM employee.

Evidently because his father works for GMAC he has taken up the cause for GM like he has a personal investment in their future and he is constantly barraging the BB with GM information and how great it is, etc.

He's a RWNJ who loves the auto union.

Except when he's blasting it for causing GM's problems. Extreme case of cognitive dissonance there...

I don't have a personal investment, but my dad does.... a nice pension and thousands of shares of stock are at stake

Well, at least if he runs out of toilet paper in his old age he'll always have those shares to use!
