The Watch

The Watch is concerned about the increasing pressure towards feudalism in the United States from corporations, social regressives, warmongers, and the media. We also are concerned with future history concerning our current times, as non-truths which are “widely reported” become the basis for completely false narratives.

American Automobile Makers Watch

Remember when American car manufacturers pooh-poohed the idea of fuel efficient vehicles and opposed increases in fuel efficiency requirements?

Remember when they opposed hybrids and fuel cell cars and instead focused on massive SUVS, vans, and trucks that get only 10 to 16 mpg?

Remember when they pulled a fast-one on the American people and called SUVs, vans, and pickups “light trucks” to avoid complying with fuel efficiency requirements?

Remember when they advertised these massive vehicles, portraying the heroic American sitting behind the wheel, saying “F#ck the environment, F#ck the rest of the world, I can drive whatever the hell I want because I’m an American”?

Remember when they stated that they preferred the free market to encourage fuel efficiency?

Well, they have now gotten what they asked for and what they so richly deserve!

See the recent headlines below:

GM Loses $15.5 Billion in Quarter
Ford Posts Loss of $8.7 Billion on Asset Woes

Now that is the free market talking! Go suck an egg, Ford and GM -- you guys have played a major role in ruining our country and making us reliant on fossil fuels. You are now getting exactly what you deserve.

-John Locke
