Hmm.....

Know anyone who drives a car or uses a cell phone? They aren't "American" so what's the issue?

the vibe and the SP1 seem to be one of the only things that they really have going for them as far as good markers for the money

You mean to tell me that every auto manufacturer has their product manufactured overseas? That's a fallacy because I know for a fact that the Ford Edge is produced right in Buffalo.

I cannot comment on the cell phone because I have no information regarding that matter.

On top of that point, you seem not to have an issue with the outsourcing of American jobs.

My BlackBerry was made in Mexico. Some are made in Hungary and some are made in the country that RIM is based out of, Canada. Most phones are made in Japan or elsewhere.

That doesn't matter in the end to the consumer so long as the product is the same. I feel bad for the employees, but its the Gardners that screwed them.

I guess everybody forgot that the luxe is a smart parts gun made under the DLX name?

Overpriced for what it is, yes, but its still a nice gun.

Actually, the Edge and MKX are built in Oakville, Ontario.. I drive past the plant the produces them regularly (not to mention the first digit of the VIN is 2 which = Canada). You might be thinking about the Escape.

No. I mean to tell you that just about everything you own has either been made in, or from, foreign countries or materials. Not one thing you own since around 1980 doesn't have some foreign component to it. Hell...my 1972 Nova was made from US steel but assembled in Canada. Parts too. A car might be made here...but is made from materials from overseas...or vice versa. Same goes for yur cell phone, dvd player, Xbox, computer....whatever you have as 'entertainment' or transportation.

Well considering that I happen to have a father who was forced into early retirement because he was a US Steel worker...I think you are pointing the finger at the wrong person. I have a different perspective and it includes greedy company heads [AND employees] who insist on 100% healthcare coverage, union protections, high salaries and paid vacations...that drive the company to find a cheaper solution. You also seem to forget that automation of factories dwindles a worforce by thousands. Blame it on EVERYONE'S greed and the highly sought "technology revolution."

To a point but as I've said before. The Gardner's wouldn't have done it, had the banks not called in their loans [because of their own Wall street messes]. Put the blame where it belongs...some to the Gardners but the rest elsewhere.

A huge banner on the side of the Buffalo Ford plant says otherwise. Maybe they're built in both locations?
