Ford employees ask if company
should stop building police vehicles

Original Article

Posted By: NorthernDog, 7/9/2020 6:40:18 PM

An estimated 100 employees of Ford Motor Co. have asked the automaker to reconsider building and selling police vehicles in light of controversy related to police brutality and social justice, the Free Press confirmed late Wednesday. The issue has been raised with Ford executives by employees during at least one virtual town hall and a series of letters sent to executives since the May 25 death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Over the past six weeks, civil rights protests have roiled the streets of Detroit and cities across the country as debate about police reform grows.


Their insane demands know no bounds. The mealy-mouth executives should verbally smack-down these employees for even suggesting such a thing.

Should ask employees if they think that Ford should fire the nit-wits who suggested this in the first place.

Note to the Ford employees, why not ask your company to stop building cars, then see what happens to your cushy jobs.

If the Ford Motor Company came out against the police by stopping the manufacturing of police vehicles they would be shooting themselves in the foot. Not only would Ford not be selling those police vehicles to city, county, and state law enforcement agencies, but they would not be making very many private sales of Ford motor vehicles to police officers, their families, and to their friends and supporters, that could easily end up being at least 50% of Americans. Who knows, if the top executives at Ford are cowards they may go for it!

Ford needs to make sure those numnuts never ever work on or have anything to so with anything related to LEO vehicles. If they have no where else to go in the company, so be it. They are creating a huge risk for Ford if the sabotage any of those vehicles, and they are too stupid to see that.

Tuberville, a former Auburn University football coach, trounced ex-Trump administration Attorney General Jeff Sessions by more than 20 percentage points Tuesday night in their Republican primary runoff. His decisive victory, effectively ending Sessions's quarter of a century in public life, sets up a Nov. 3 general election showdown against Jones. Jones will appear on the ballot at the same time as President Trump, who in 2016, defeated Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in Alabama 62%-34%. No Democrat has

New York's polls closed nearly three weeks ago. But many candidates still don't know whether they've won -- because New York City is still counting ballots that arrived in the mail. These votes would be an afterthought in most years. In fact, in New York, which is typically far more reliant on in-person voting, state law requires a weeklong delay before counting absentee ballots. But this year, amid widespread worries of COVID-19 spreading at polling places, the number of mail-in ballots is surging far faster than states' ability to count them. Elections experts are increasingly convinced that this surge, and the

At this point, maybe Hillary is tripling down or quadrupling down. She is still beating a dead horse – the loser of the 2016 presidential election wanted the viewers of Trevor Noah’s late-night television show to know that Trump’s victory was illegitimate and she has thoughts or something. She doesn’t have any new thoughts, mind you, but she is bitterly clinging to her old thoughts. Watching a video of the interview, it is easy for anyone who paid attention to the 2016 election or is old enough to remember the administration of Bill Clinton to understand the irony in most of Hillary’s answers to the softball questions asked by Noah.

An article published in the Los Angeles Times Tuesday said that the “Star-Spangled Banner” should be replaced by Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” LA Times contributor Jody Rosen cited “viral posts on social media” which said the anthem is racist, then argued it is aesthetically a bad song in the article. Rosen concluded saying the message of “Lean on Me” can be a foundation for a “decent” society. “If the point of a national anthem is to provide a mnemonic, a reminder in music and words of the ideas and values that this place is supposed to stand for, you could do worse than ‘Lean on Me,’” Rosen wrote.
