I mean, there has only been about a thousand articles how millennials aren't buying cars. Way to know your audience, GOP.

I fill my tank without checking my balance. Then again I own a Prius with a 9.5 gallon tank @45 MPG rather than the 18 gallon @20 MPG Tacoma I used to own. More miles for half the price.

/went 15k miles in the past 7 months, so yeah, I think I saved some money.

So I was sitting at the cafe drinking my double moche mint latte with soy milk and some middle aged person came in and bought a coffee with an EBT card.  It was probably some programmer that didn't keep their skills up.  Anyway, I was like "Hey, the social safety net was totes awesome... for my grandma."   He didn't think it was very funny, but old people don't understand satire.

I don't know of any auto manufacturer that builds all of their vehicles in one country.  GM, Ford, and Chrysler build more in the US (for the US market) than they do elsewhere, and even Toyota and Honda have been pushing for more US production.  VW makes a few models here as well.

I'm not sure what Audi's production breakdown looks like.  Mercedes and BMW make some SUVs in the US, but I believe all of their cars are still made in Germany.

Ford has three truck plants in the US, Dearborn, MI; Kansas City, MO; and Louisville, KY.  That covers all of their pickups except for the F-650/750 which are built in Mexico in a joint venture plant with Navistar (International).

At least this one isn't trying to mansplain how ladyparts and rape really work to the wimmenfolk and babbling about how slavery was just peachy-keen.  It's just a punchable douche in glasses yammering something incoherent about "all-of-the-above energy."   It's still like giving the one guy in the special ed class who didn't piss himself and managed to use a spoon without hurting himself an award, but credit where credit's due, I guess.

Not really an answer to the question, but the company that keeps the most of its production in-country is Toyota.  Probably because they have an obsessive logistics division and have policies on pay-checks based on Japanese labor standards, meaning they wouldn't actually save any money moving parts of the line to Mexico.

FTFA: I feel pretty lucky to have a job. So many people I know are unemployed. It's like their lives are stuck in neutral.

So I get ticked off at politicians who say they want to help the unemployed and then vote for regulations that make it impossible to hire anyone. Listen, you can't help the unemployed by hurting the people who could employ them.

I'm a Republican because my friends need a paycheck, not an empty promise.


This is the problem with the GOP and their messaging. OK, so he is concerned about his unemployed friends. Considering the solution he supports for helping his friends is to cut their unemployment assistance, cut any food assistance they get, cut any housing assistance they get, and deny them basic medical coverage all based on the premise they are unemployed because they are lazy moochers; I'd hate to see his attitude towards his enemies.

It's the whole "double speak" in GOP rhetoric. At one side of their mouth they say they sympathize with the unemployed and want to help them because the evil liberals are killing jobs with the "regulations" strawman. Then out of the other side they are calling the unemployed moochers dependent on the government who need to have their benefits cut so they will get off their lazy asses and work. Out of one side of their mouths they say they are the political party to help minorities succeed; then out of the other they bash the minorities' culture, heritage, intelligence, and question their position as "real Americans". The GOP bashes President Obama regarding the lower wages being paid by a lot of the new jobs created during the recovery. Then out of the other side of their mouths they are bashing union workers for making too much, pass policies wanting to reduce public union wages to be inline with those private sector jobs paying reduced wages, eliminate the minimum wage, and take away any laws that empower the worker.

Look at the solutions proposed by the GOP to the problems that hipster dude stated. There is not a single GOP policy/answer to those problems that doesn't label the groups who need the "solutions" as the actual problem, and punishes them for it in some way. The GOP is not against the "nanny state", they just want to be the nannies. Mean, uncaring, exploitative, and abusive nannies; so they cam make sure those they deem unworthy suffer and do not succeed.

cars and GOP are a bit of a dilemma,

American brand cars are built with union manpower, and they can't have that
Foreign brand cars means money for some foreign rich dude and that's bad PR

I'm actually surprised there isn't a list of all american-non union built cars that'll satisfy their kosher-like sensibilities

And on top of everything else, I'm getting really farking tired of the Republicans claiming the problem is "regulations." In the last couple of months I've seen both in West Virginia and here in North Carolina two really putrid environmental disasters. Both are a direct result of underfunded and relatively toothless environmental watchdog agencies. And your solution is FEWER regulations? As if Pat Farking McCrory needs fewer hurdles to protect his old company from having to take any responsibility for literally poisoning the well?

Exactly and it is more of the GOP "double speak" when they talk about those environmental disasters, They say that regulations are not needed, that business owners will protect the environment out of fear of profit loss and lawsuits. Yet then they support "tort reform" which is fancy Republican speak for protecting business owners by forcing the plaintiffs into binding arbitration and reducing the amount that can be awarded in settlements. Then even if the plaintiff is successful, the owners can just have the company declare bankruptcy while corporate laws protect their ill gotten gains; while those harmed are stuck suing a broke company whose owners have gutted it for anything of value.
