    Trudy may be more vulnerable politically than Angie to the upcoming car wars.

    We shall see if MAGA blinks first.

    (Hard to tell if Trudy is blinking or if his prosthetic brow just slipped again.)

    DT, where were you born? Is it such a terrible place? Why are you so ashamed of it?

    Can't wait to see the looks on the faces of Trump supporters when their multiple trade wars really start biting. It's already starting and I don't think I have enough popcorn for this!

    Independence Day brings with it typical expressions of British hatred of America. Happy Fourth of July.

    The article is about a German and a Japanese car company, and the commenters are an American and an Australian.


    PS. Happy independence day, bitches. I always wondered if you stay up really late to do the fireworks or just have them in daylight when you can't see much? D'you ever wish you'd picked a day in Autumn when it would get dark earlier?

    Yep, right on cue.

    So the question comes to mind, why do they hate us? They hate us because we are free. They rage against us because they envy our liberty. Lacking democracy, freedom of speech and action they wish that they were us.

    Who is they? And who is raging?

    Considering I come from a country that has lower poverty, more stability, longer lifespans, far far far less crime and murders and a more robust and stronger democracy..... well I am unsure what I am supposed to envy exactly?

    But please, whine away!
