    You called my comment "BS". So you can sling consescending trip, but just can't take it?? I'll be more delicate from now on.

    And I'm sorry, but when someone says "the official Ford site" most poeple, including my children (grade school) can figure out "ford.com" Don't forget the "www".


    In case you can't find this response, here is the link:

    Stories like this are sensationalized and serves to rile people up. I wonder why they didn’t publish the story about GM re-opening its Orion, MI plant to build the new Chevrolet Sonic, and the additional $145 mil. they invested for additional tooling to build the new Buick Verano there as well. That plant will put 1,500 Americans to work, 1,100 of whom had been laid off. Or, what about the $43 mil. GM invested in the new plant in Brownstown Township, MI that will build the battery for the new Chevy Volt and future electric vehicles? It will only employ 100 right now, but that is 100 more new U.S. jobs.

    To keep illegal immigrants in their own country?

The rest goes to make heating oil and other heavy fuel. You actually get about 44 gallons worth of petroleum products from a 42 gallon barrel of crude. Iím not sure how that works, but it does. Donít worry about the oil companies, theyíre making plenty.
    My post was in jest, making a pun on funny/fuzzy math.

    The oil companies have been doing quite well for some time

    A barrell of oil costs $90 and makes 20 gallons that is $4.50/gallon.

    And I can buy it for less than $3/gallon after transportation, refinery and taxes.

    I've got to call me broker and tell him to divest me of all oil stocks ASAP

    Funny math is as Funny math does regards
    I've heard that gasoline is made from basicailly the waste of a barrel of oil. Plastics and other products account for the rest of it.

    Of course, I would rather have seen those jobs in the U.S. However, the reality is companies are going to build where it makes the most sense economically. Those engines will go in vehicles built and sold in various countries around the world. They are for vehicles built on a global platform.

    A lot of people on this board condemned GM for poor business practices. Now, they are condemned for being cost effective. They said Ford did things the right way and thatís why they didnít need Gov. loans. Well, look at all the vehicles Ford is producing in Mexico. So, if Ford is doing it right . . . .

    Now don't go applying common sense and a level playing field. The righties can do or say no wrong. If they appear to, its merely because the facts haven't been properly manipulated or ignored!

    Then why not do something that might actually work? Shoot everyone that tries to cross the border. Power up the fence. If they had the threat of death for attempting to cross I bet fewer would try to cross. Right now if they get caught we just ship the back and they try again.
    Why not deny education to all illegals? Why not deny all rights to illegals and their spawn?
    Why is it ok to break the law, jump the border, squat down and pop out a kid and all of a sudden you and your spawn are above the law?
