rumpelstiltskin: In retrospect, Germany's mistake during re-unification was trying to make the East as much like the West as possible. They could have had their own South Carolina, full of toothless inbred hillbillies willing and proud to serve as cheap labor for their more civilized countrymen. We farked up the south so bad during reconstruction those illiterate peasants will never catch up. That's just German arrogance for you. They never think they have anything to learn from anybody.
vpb: It's not unusual for companies in developed countries to do their manufacturing in third world countries where the wages are low and there are no unions.
DrSansabeltNoShiatSlacks: It's BMW: Bowel Movement Werkes. BMW hasn't been relevant since the 1970's, when they produced real cars.
rohar: You seem fairly ignorant of what's been going on in Germany. The east wasn't their Alabama, Bavaria is. Why would any country want two Alabamas?

dfenstrate: Those evil Germans, paying people good money to make cars, and planning to do even more of it. All those toothless hillbillies would be better sucking off the government teat on welfare, so they could thank leftists for their largess and good intent.You lefties ought to get together and make a law against this kind of meaningful work. It's double plus ungood because those simpletons might actually take pride in making fine automobiles. We can't have that, not when there's still government cheese in the warehouse to shove down someone's throat. For their own good, of course, because leftists know best. Ask anyone up thread of me. They'll tell you what great people they are and how you should listen to them, and how wonderful all their ideas for society are.Go ahead, ask them.
