It would be easy to save GM and create jobs.
All GM has to do is remake the 57 chev and the 58 corvette.
have you seen what they sell for now?

Yup, they shop at Sam's Club, Menard's, Home Depot. Their money does end up buying some products made in the U.S.A.

Gee guys wize up:-------- buy a greeting card DVD and make your own cards; save yourseff a ton of money and they look as good as the overpriced store bought ones.
Halmark sales one that has thousands of cards on it.

Not sure if the DVD is made in China; but look at it this way; think of all the cards you won't buy.

Honda and toyota may be manufactured here in America, but the profits are returned back to Japan. I don't buy too many greeting cards, but when I do next time, I'll be sure it's not an american greeting card.

American companies having their product manufactured in other countries is just the tip of the iceburg. Over taxation, unions, monopolies, etc... all come in to play here.
