Let me again hear the chorus how buying Honda & Toyota's made in the USA doesn't have a negative effect on our technical and manufacturing abilities nor effect our jobs here in the USA....

Since this wasn't in the original article, I can only guess that this is your editorial?

Ok, I'll start.

Do you think it could have more to do with American car makers' inability to adapt to a changing market than whether there's a "Made in the USA" sticker on the vehicle?

If you want to live in America, and be proud of her capitalist, democratic ways, you gotta be willing to die by the sword, too. Can't have it both ways. The Japanese carmakers saw an opportunity, innovated our pants off, and now own that market. We don't get to cry foul. We sat on our a$$es, and now we're getting them handed to us, and that doesn't have diddly-poo to do with our "technical and manufacturing abilities" being "negatively affected" by Japanese carmakers.

I guess I don't see a connection between foreign cars being manufactured domestically and our ability to innovate.
