Sometimes you are so stupid there is no explanation for your gross stupidity except that you are just too stupid to understand that you are stupid.

Now I just said that cars manufactured in the USA typically have 75 North American percent parts.

And you "prove" me wrong with showing everyone an example of a car made in the US that is manufactured using 75 percent parts made in the USA and Canada.

I'll call you out, Aunt Jemima. Why did several prominent DEMOCRATIC congressional politicians call for military action in Iraq over those very same WMDs
The president of the United States, bigot: is the president of the United States.

He is kind of the boss, bigot.

He wants to start a war with someone, bigot, he goes to Congress and gives him the facts he has to support his case.

Thing is, bigot, if he lies, how people vote in Congress has to be seen in the context that the is a m/f c/s liar.

NO matter who is the POTUS or what party he belongs to.

Bush lied.

You really do have all the intelligence of a cabbage (and, yes, I do realize that does a tremendous disservice to cabbages everywhere). George Bush added six trillion dollars to the national debt from the time he took office until the time he left. Barrack Obama added the same to the national debt DURING HIS FIRST TERM. By the time he leaves office, the national debt will have doubled or very close to it from the time he first took office until the time he leaves. He did take over a totally screwed up economy when he became President but, since then, he's done nothing to improve it and has, in point of fact, made it worse. Go crawl back into your sand box, Aunt Jemima.

Nice deflection, dimwit. I asked a very simple question and you couldn't answer it. The DEMOCRATS in congress were calling for military action in Iraq due to WMDs BEFORE BUSH BECAME PRESIDENT. That's fact, moron, deal with it.

Calling me a bigot is laughable and a complete lie. If being anti incompetence is being bigoted, then I goes I am. If being anti liars and clueless idiots is being bigoted, I guess I am. But I am bigoted against people because of who the are and, as someone once said, because of what's in their hearts. I don't give a rat's azz what ethnicity a person is nor what color they are nor what their religion is nor what their sexual orientation is, etc. What I do care about is how they treat others and, if their in a position of power, whether or not they work to improve the lives of the citizens of this country over anyone else. Go back to your vibrator, child.

PS: Mexican parts are not included in the "North American" definition, only parts made in US and Canada.
So the percentage goes up.
And the percentage of American made parts in your 1980 Datsun is zero.

You really need to learn to read while in prison.

I wanted to buy an American car. They were overpriced... by a lot. I bought it. Leasing is not a good idea in most cases. It's one of the the best investments I've made. Every year the dealer asks me to trade it in for a new one, but there's no need. It still runs and looks new because Conservatives take care of their assets.

I've never bought an American TV. I wish we made those too.

Liberals won the war on manufacturing in America.

"Made In U.S.A.(Partly)

"For example, while Jeep's Patriot may be built in Belvedere, Ill., its transmissions originate in Mexico, Japan and Germany. Similarly Ford's Michigan-assembled Mustang may be as American as mom, Marines, and apple pie, but its transmissions come from China, France, the U.K., and Mexico. Chrysler's PT Cruiser isn’t even built in the U.S.– it’s assembled in Toluca, Mexico, though its transmission is U.S.-sourced. GM, meanwhile, builds its Chevy Camaro in Canada and its GMC Sierra pickup in Mexico...."

"The F-Series pickup truck, that most iconic of domestic vehicles, is assembled in Kansas City, Missouri, and Dearborn, Michigan, but with just 55 percent of parts made in the U.S. or Canada. More than 15 percent of its parts come from Mexico, although all of its engines and both transmission systems are built in the U.S. Some transmissions for the Mustang (assembled in Flat Rock, Michigan) come from China.

"GM vehicles assembled in Canada include Chevrolet's Camaro, Equinox and Impala and the GMC Terrain, while vehicles built in Mexico include Cadillac's SRX and Escalade EXT, Chevrolet's Aveo, HHR, Silverado, and GMC's Sierra. GM vehicles built in the U.S. include Buick's LaCrosse, Lucerne and Enclave, Cadillac's CTS, DTS and STS-V, Chevrolet's Cruze, Corvette, Malibu and Tahoe, and GMC's Yukon.

"According to figures from IHS Global Insight, of the GM vehicles assembled domestically, several Corvette engines are built in Canada, with several transmission variants originating in Mexico. Its Chevrolet Silverado (assembled in Fort Wayne, Indiana) carries U.S.-built engines across all models, but several transmissions are built in Mexico. For the Cadillac CTS assembled in Lansing, Mich., several engines originate in Canada and Mexico, and the transmissions for various models in the CTS range come from Japan, France, Mexico, and the U.S. Some engines for GM's Chevrolet Cruze, assembled in Lordstown, Ohio, come from Szentgotthard, Hungary.

"Chrysler says about 61 percent of the components it uses for its Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep lines come from the U.S., while about 20 percent come from Mexico and Latin America, about 10 percent from Canada and just under 10 percent from the rest of the world. It maintains large production facilities across the U.S., but also builds its 300 and Dodge Challenger and Charger, in Canada, and the PT Cruiser in Mexico...."

It doesn't matter what the political affiliation of the CEO is. He's smart. He will do whatever he has to do to get a Pass on Taxes card from Lord Obama. And it looks like it worked-- GE saved billions on taxes by Immelt sucking up and GE running Obama propaganda.

Speaking of sucking up, I proposed a while back that if you pathetic leeches expect us conservatives to pay for your health care, pay for your bastard children's lunches, pay for your groceries, the LEAST you can do is pleasure us with a hummer once a month.

It should be a law. You get a recharged EBT, I get a hummer.
