Volvo plunged the most in at least 19 years in Stockholm trading. The Gothenburg, Sweden-based company won just 115 European orders in the third quarter, down from 41,970 a year earlier. Soedertaelje, Sweden-based Scania slipped 8.9 percent to a four-year low.

"Politically, the city consistently supports the Democratic Party in state and national elections (local election are nonpartisan). According to a study released by the Bay Area Center for Voting Research, Detroit is the most liberal large city in America, measuring only the percentage of city residents who voted for the Democratic Party." (Source - Wikipedia).

Ahhhh~~ that's the word I was looking for - "the most liberal large city." Liberals never fail in screwing everyone. :) And the idiots keep electing the same liberal politicians into office. Like the old adage goes - people deserve the government they elect.

P.S. This is the preview of what's coming IF the secular-socialist Barack H. Obama (D-IL) gets into the White House.
