'Buy American' support builds as sales fall

I will only buy American, If any politician is serious about keeping jobs here they will lower the business tax, if in mexico its 11 % and here 35 % why would any sane business man stick around? Politicians on both side make me sick these days.

This goes back a long time - many decades to a time where American autos were of far less quality than foreign ones (Toyota, Honda). It wasn't their fault they made a better product that lasted longer - it was the American automobile manufacturer's fault.

Times are changing now, though - GM has certainly upped the quality level & many people will start buying more American products if the trend in increased quality continues. The woman flashing the message to other cars - that's just stupid & it incites road rage /anger/ resentment. She has no right to try to distract other driver's attention from the road. Even at stoplights, she could be diverting attention that could somehow result in an accident.

People like that are just irresponsible.....

Your right she should not distract the other driver, shes having a conversation with her friend on her cell phone while driving...might miss a detail about last night..

trust me man..someone holding up a sign is nothing compared to the jack ass stuff I have scene people do at lights..and these people are on the front lines of this huge problem..does her sign help? Nope but to me it just something else you gotta deal with on the road.
