Watching the news this morning, and a commercial for a local Ford dealer comes on.
Now, of course, he wants you to buy his cars, rather than anyone elses, and that's to be expected.
...And this is the part that's really stupid; his sales pitch goes:
"Buy a Ford,save a job. Make our economy strong, not theirs"

Now what the hell is that supposed to mean - we're supposed to buy American cars just because they're American? If the Japanese cars had never been sold here, would the American car makers ever improved their gas mileage? I think not, since they never made an effort at it before Toyota,Honda, showed up.

So let's try to sell cars on their merit, ok, not by pandering to patriotic bullshit.
