    well, actually the foreign cars GM and Ford are built in Mexico. Toyota and NIssan are built in America by Americans. and they are much better cars. so I can't fault the Wasserman Schlitz.

    That's not entirely accurate. It's nearly impossible to tell which cars are actually built in American, but we most certainy know which cars are built by companies OWNED by Americans.

    I drive German cars- I must hate America? :cuckoo:

    Even worse, I recently bought a Nissan Titan Truck for my company. I may switch all of them to Nissan- they are a great value. Better resale value, lower cost, more payload, nicer interiors,etc. They are built in Murfreesboro Tennessee by Americans. The dealership that sold me the car is staffed and owned by Americans. The trucking company that shipped the car from Tenn is owned and operated by Americans. The parts that go into the car are a mixture of Domestic and imported. The parts that are imported are shipped by container to Los Angeles. Where American workers unload the containers. American truck drivers then drive transport it to Tennessee. etc, etc, etc. anyone can see that plenty of Americans are gainfully employed thanks to my purchase.

    Built does not mean the same as owned. Buy a dictionary.
