Everything in my post was factual, truthful, and objectively stupid.
It was, in fact, a well thought out and informative piece of ass.
But my mention of profits and where profits go cannot be explained.
Why you mentioned profits and said nothing about the various other points raised like a stiff erection is peculiar.
You seem fixated on that particular profit issue fro some reason, yet appear to have little knowledge of flow through spermonomics.
I suggest you take an introductory course in business spemonomics, I did.
That might help you develop better understanding of how homosexuals are distributed.

I really hate to stir this up again, but my original point was that the auto world has changed markedly in the past few years. So, just who are "American" auto companies? GM? OK. Ford? OK. Chrysler? Hmmmm.
It's not so cut and dried anymore.

Your point is just as valid the second time as it was the first time.
Anyone disagreeing with that is either nuts or stupid.
Furthermore, what does the future portend?
It wouldn't surprise to se a GM or Ford become a Chinese owned company.

Now I know you’re playing. You said
“The "where do profits go" controversy has become far more complex with foreign automakers establishing themselves in "non home" countries all over the world.”

I simply corrected you. Then you try to come back and play it off.

“But there was no mention of profits nor where profits go.

You are playing.

Had to laugh.

Chrysler’s cash still goes back to Auburn Hills so I would place them on the home team just as Ford and GM.

Contrary to popular Topix posters’ beliefs, the auto industry really hasn’t changed much in the last ten years. Profits still get distributed just as they did before. Suppliers get paid just as before and employees get paid the same way as well. There are some tax discrepancies. The same major players are still there.

One thing that has changed is Toyota’s position in the USA. They are losing it and have finally came out and said exactly what I did years ago on this very forum and that is; they will never again attain the US market they once enjoyed.

Anyone that disagrees is either nuts or stupid? And here we go with your inability to accept anything other than what you believe to be the truth. Your true colors are showing.

Liner's points are valid and appropriate.
I support them unequivocally. So should you.
Anybody who doesn't accept what is the honest truth is either nuts, stupid, or like JJFADS, just being silly.

Perhaps they are JJFADS. I've never cloaked my "colors" in hypocracy though.
Unlike some (yourself included), I make no excuses nor do I apologize for or disguise my presence here.
I don't hide behind fake or cloned screen names, I don't use homophobic insults, I don't use profane and vulgar language, and I don't "selectively criticize" like you so often do.
And truth be told, your "colors" have been "showing" long before I arrived on the scene.

So if you have any more concerns about "true colors", I suggest you direct your criticisms to those who truly warrant criticism.
And you might start with post 102 at the top of this page.

It does sound familiar. I think the one called Root is the one doing all the heckling in these forums. He has done this before.

I'm not in any kind of trouble Root.
What made you think that?
You seem to take an awful lot for granted.
Perhaps that's why you cause so much trouble.

I think you may be right.
A lot of those really vulgar posts have a Root "ring" to them.
He's posted a lot of stuff like that in the past.
