Don’t put pressure on Tundra, the steel is weak. CR drops the Tundra to “not recommended.” Save it for a load of cotton candy just to be on the safe side.

The domestics make trucks for sale in America. And according to their sales, they seem to do a pretty good job of it. Why should they have to meet "world standards"?

While you're entitled to your opinion about any truck versus any other, stop with your uninformed nonsense about "human rights violations". Tundras are manufactured in San Antonio, Texas. I doubt there are very many "human rights violations" going on there.

Not trying to stir the post of confrontation here, but I'd like to know exactly what "Human Rights Violations" he's referring to.
I have a feeling perhaps he's thinking China or India, as opposed to Japan.
To my knowledge, there aren't any glaring human rights issues in Japan.(Or Texas!)

just living in texas is a human rights violation.Until you have seen the inside of a Jap factory you dont know how those workers are treated Mental mistreatment is just as bad. People are shamed into suicide for poor performance. All your Texas built profits go back to Emporer Toyota ,open your eyes people buy American our country needs it now more than ever.

So far, everything you've said is wrong. Better quit while you can still get ahead.

Japanese automobile factories aren't nearly as bad as you imply.
Their auto manufacturing methods were the envy of the rest of the worlds carmakers--in fact most American automakers have copied them.

Re your comment about Texas--that state has an enviable high employment record and a has survived the recession in your country better than most states. They must be doing something right!

Also, you are wrong in suggesting profits from offshore companies leave the US. The lion's ahare of profits are paid to shareholders (many who exist in the US), and reinvested in local operations and communities.

There are significant positives about offshore investment in the US manufacturing sector. Employee wages, tax revenues, local suppliers of components and services, etc. all benefit the US and its citizens.
Would it be wise to ignore or abandon these benefits?

Your buy US philosophy is a little narrow minded. Firstly, you need investment from US investors in order to make the goods in the US. Where are these investors? You'll find that a goodly cshare of them are from other countries.
Secondly, business costs in general within the US are fairly high, thus (a) investors are somewhat reluctant to put their money there, and (b) in many cases those manufactured goods are more expensive, so this causes consumers to buy cheaper goods from offshore. Do you really think US citizens woukld be willing to pay higher prices when the rest of the world doesn't?

When you cticicize offshore owners of US companies, don't forget that a great many US companies operate in other countries, so what you accuse offshores of doing is something the US does too.
Furthermore, you need to know that the majority of US companies in other countries keep their profits there instead of bringing them back to the US---they avoid paying a lot of US taxes by doing so.

Lastly, for the US to close its economic doors to the rest of the world would be foolish. In today's world market, manufacturing isolationism is impossible. The "Buy US" concept souunds very patriotic, but economically it won't work as well as you might think. Be careful what you wish for.

Just a few points to share

Japanese auto factories are pretty bad. The workers are drones. I’ve seen them.

Texas has a robust economy.

Profits from Toyota absolutely leave this country.

Manufacturing is actually starting to move from China back to the USA.

I find it interesting that anytime someone posts a civil, reasoned, and intellectually valid comment, that there's always at least one cowardly lowlife who attacks it with crude personal insults.
Says much aabout the character of those who do it.

looks like your doing it also,"cowardly lowlife
says much about the character of you.Seems like people dont really agree with you, check the older posts.I was not trying to insult the idiots out there by lumping a canuck in there with them.You have a special place all your own. I would think you Canadians would support American products. Seems like I remember most of the cowards that were called to serve thier country fled to Canada.A country with a history of cowardice .Some even with a arrogant French attitude. As far as I am concerned you really have no right to comment on anything American,your little economy would not exist without U.S.

I find it interesting that some folks here can't deal with a civil and polite comment without immediately resorting to gross personal insults.

The anonymity of the internet seems to attract a few really angry and hateful folks who take every opportunity to treat others rudely.

Boy, do you have REDNECK written all over you! What makes you assume(that word again, know what I mean?)that I don't believe in buying American? America makes the best trucks in the world. No unions in Japan? Better check that again. They may be different than here, but "there are no unions in Japan" is completely incorrect. How does a Japanese company not send it's profits back home? Very simple, any profits left over from reinvestments in factories, salaries etc,(like in Texas), go to the stockholders. If you have any retirement investments, you might want to check to see if you have any stock in a company called "T".
What the hell do you care what they eat? I'm sure you have enough of whatever you eat in Missouri, don't you?
