Sorry your talking to a guy that looks at a bigger picture of the story, the true underlining meanings. Not just some subplot (real estate and the corporate buy outs!) of the main story. Us americans and the use of this over grown government.
Of course, the real world picture is much bigger. As I said, the issue facing 300 millions Americans and the world is very complex and can't be summarized down to a few lines. We are only analyzing the problem simplistically here...

I enjoyed all the intelligent and civilized discussions and laughed at some "challenged" replies and debates here...

Back to the OP'er, to be anti-anything that takes more money out of your pocket. Is, Well, forgive me for my lack of vocabulary, retarded! Because, what do you think your doing? Saving or creating Jobs for Americans? Americans that would be happier with their government cheese and just hang out with the friends at the local bar?
I agree with you on this but I would use the word "challenged" instead...

Cheers!

Spell check is without a doubt an underlying problem as well, it would appear...

Increasingly difficult to take many of these posts seriously...

Connect fingers with brain for coherent conversation.

1 root cause identified and 50,000 more to go...

Interesting to see native English speakers can't even string a proper sentence and spell correctly!

Lol!

Oh and their apparel is also screen printed I the same factory!
Oh snap, I am buying some Panther to help the US economy. What do they have equivalent to Bow-Tie?

I noticed that earlier lol, but I never said nothing as I didn't want to pass judgement, but I had a laugh at that one.

back on topic. Was looking at the new MP9 TKI2 on amain:
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...Off-Road-Buggy

one of the "NEW" features that is listed:
"Made in Japan! Everything from the ground up is made in Japan for the highest level of quality and reliability."

so... guessing I was right about them outsourcing to another country before.
