    This country is in a mess. The auto industry, airline industry, housing industry, and mom and pop. I just got back from running some errands, drove down a major business district and saw businesses one after the other closed up or buildings for lease. I'm sure its worse in other places as this is an affluent area.

    When you make sh!tty cars, no one is going to buy them. Maybe we should impose huge tariffs on all foreign vehicles so that people are forced to buy american, and if they don't, the government accrues more "revenue" from the foreign vehicles that are sold.
