What is WRONG with these ungrateful CEO's and
"American" corporations?

I was contemplating purchasing a car and the ONLY
kind I was contemplating was FORD.

WHY? Because THEY (I though) were the only ones left that were truly AMERICAN.

The population of our country doesn't want to
just be a satellite of China and all their
crappy, slip-shotly made "products", if you
could call it that.

I was totally floored that Chevy was just GIVING our new auto technologies to China....our newly developed, light-weight metallic structures for
battery composition and top of the line Research
to create a new, eco-friendly revolution in auto products.

NOW FORD, too?

America just can't win. We'll never be again a great nation....if these selfish, short-term thinking unpatriotic CEO's and corps don't shape up.

Nope----I refuse to purchase a vehicle NOW.
Keep your China crap. I stick with my American junkyard clunker as long as I can patch it together.

I just can't believe this. This is upsetting.

Ford only moved there for insurance reasons and EPA. chinese life not worth much as an Americans finger lost in factory accident. Also the pollution the factory gives off is no big deal in china.
