First off, thanks to the people who have tried to help, your good advise is appreciated. Secondly and to the attention of Mr sportsman, I tell it like it is, you don't like it, stay off my thread!!!! I don't know what kind of drugs your on, but you did not complete one proper sentence, and the spelling is worse. If you completed more than the ninth grade, and you are a ford tech, good for you!!! My anger is not aimed at the techs. It is aimed at the guys who rob me, and pay the techs 11 bucks an hour!!! I cannot wait for the entire car industy to go bust. All of them should. 2 nights ago on PBS tv, one of fords top execs was on talking about profit. He made this statement, "ON A $55,000.00 EXCURSION, FORD STICKS $S26,500.00 IN THEIR POCKETS, THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE WHAT THE DEALER MAKES" This is proffit above and beyond all costs of manufactoring. Do you know of any other product made today, that allows the producer to make 100% profit? Why do you think the overseas people are coming to our country, building better cars, selling them for less, and making millions? They are not stupid, greedy idiots!!!!! They use us like cattle, build a product that gives so much trouble it has to be replaced when the warrenty expires...
I bought a brand new f-150 lariat (loaded to the gills) truck in 1979. Paid 4200.00 cash and drove the truck off the showroom floor. I was earning 14.75 an hour, as a front end tech for t and t auto and tire in liberty texas and gas was .68 cents a gallon.
Now that same truck is 46,000, I'll bet you don't make 13.00 an hour, and gas is 3 bucks a gallon. What has happened? Corporate america!!!! CA says, work the consumer for everything you can get, overtax him, cheat him on the interest rates, steal his equity in everything. A hungry consumer, a broke consumer is a consumer we can control. WE can force him to jump through our loops, because he has no choice, none!!!!
bill clinton, allowed our 13 oil companies to consolidate down to 2 (no more price competetion), he also allow the lending laws to be rewritten so all banks could take all the first 33% of all payments made to them as profit, and not return it if it was paid off early, refinanced, or sold. Instead of taking just a percentage of our first 33%, they take it all, you build no equity. Hence gap insurance, Inflated home values. This means if you have a 7 year note on a car, the first 2 years, you build no equity in it, the lender takes it all as their profit. If you keep it the full 7 years, then it makes no differance, but if you trade in 2 or 3 years, you owe almost what you did when you bought the unit. The lenders do not refund their profit if you end the note early. you pay the 7 YEARS intrest, wheather you use it or not. A 30 year house morgage is extreme. The bank takes the first 10 years for their profit. So how do the banks stop people from killing the bankers, when in 7 years(the average homeowner needs new paper every 7 years), and 200,000 dollars later, the homeowner discovers he still owes what he gave for his house. How does a banker justify stealing a quarter of a million dollars from you? He artificially inflates the value of your home 200,000 dollars!!!! The banks own the apprasers. been there done that.
Its time the cattle sent a message to C.A., we have had enough!!! I am 59, too old to care, I'll be gone soon and could give a rats *** what the enslavers do to us. but you young people should get invovled, its your *** that they are working the hell out of, and you have no hope of ever having anything!!!
