“With all the garbage on the street, I can imagine the state of the flood water.

We are one major sea wall breach, or really high waves, from a serious disaster on the Guyana coast”. – says Peter Halder, who submitted these pictures.

“The American Auto Industry is Back” – President Obama

The White House
Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012

“The American Auto Industry is Back” 

Yesterday, President Obama spoke at the United Auto Workers Annual Conference to discuss the success of the American auto industry.
After nearly collapsing three years ago, our nation’s big three automakers are turning profits and opening new factories. The industry has added more than 200,000 jobs. And those workers aren’t just building cars again — they are building better, more fuel efficient automobiles that help Americans save money at the pump every time they fill up:

Three years later, the American auto industry is back. GM is back on top as the number-one automaker in the world — with the highest profits in its 100-year history. Chrysler is growing faster in America than any other car company. Ford is investing billions in American plants, American factories, and plans to bring thousands of jobs back to America.
