Because Jeep was sold and was going to China just like Hummer/Buick and Caddy but now Jeep is going to Italy (FIAT) haha thank the NeW WoRlD OrDeR for further DE-industrializing the USA by DESIGN! the factories are being sent offshore to other countries with our tax money, DONT BUY THESE VEHICLES! Let them go under, like they should have in the first place. stay away from Government Motors and Dodge/Chrysler

you cant compete when paying someone a 3$ a day vs 20$ per hour,Yes I know Ford got bailout money aswell..... just like ALL.... EVERY SINGLE BANK got bailout money and still are at a rate of 85 BILLION a month in qe/3 "Infinity".... 45B in Tbills and 40B in mortgage bonds this country is done.

It's only a matter of time why else do you think everything is being shipped offshore, DHS buying over 2 billion bullets 1/3 of which are hollow points enough for a 20 year war and even 7.62x39 rounds which they don't have weapons to fire them off ... its to dry up the supply.. i remember when a SKS was $90 now they are $500-$600... Police agencies around the country being federally fused and supplied with Riot gear and military style APC's, The patriot act was for the American people hah just look at the latest NSA crap and them calling Snowden a traitor. The guy is a freakin hero and has done MORE for the American people than anyone has in a very long time. When the SHTF veterans like me will be blamed for setting off IED's that's why we're are ENEMY #1 on the DHS list.


Anyway Ford wasn't as bad off as GM and Dodge/Chrysler though and they for sure would not have gone under but GM and dodge would have, and they should have gone under that's what happens when you cant properly run a business. but now all those people that were worried about their jobs they will be losing them anyway.

the problem is the general public is still too stupid because they're all being chemically attacked through the Fluoride in the water /GMO in the food and the garbage + cancer viruses in the vaccines, when I see things like this though it just reaffirms the simple mindlessness of the public.

I think you have some personal issues than needs some outside assistance. Your comments on ammo, are incorrect, DHS does use 7.62X39 as well as several other non conventional rounds.

yeah yeah man heard it all before its just your cop out since you haven't a clue in what to say except imply that im crazy or a tin foil hat wearer, just a suggestion for you "think outside the box" that's what separates you from being a slave! My comments on ammo are correct you are just simply mistaken. Start a topic id enjoy going back and forth with you.When I was in the Army the only 7.62 round we used was a NATO 7.62×51

7.62x39

"The U.S. Army is now looking to stockpile nearly 3,000,000 live rounds of Soviet-era Russian ammo popular with civilian shooters.

A U.S. Army solicitation posted July 18 on the Federal Business Opportunities web site asks for “non-standard” ammunition from vendors which includes:

- 2,550,000 rounds of 7.62x39mm ball ammo
- 575,000 blank rounds of 7.62x39mm ammo and
- 425,000 rounds of 9x18mm Makarov ball ammo

The army intends to store all these rounds in ammo storage facilities at both Camp Stanley in Boerne, Texas and the Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky.

As the solicitation implies, the 7.62x39mm and the 9x18mm Makarov are not standard-issue in the U.S. military or NATO.

Rather they are calibers developed by the former Soviet Union which are now commonly used by civilian shooters in the United States.

The 7.62x39mm in particular is extremely popular with private gun owners due to the wide availability and affordability of both military surplus ammo and firearms chambered for this round, such as the AK-47 and the SKS.

Handguns chambered for the 9x18mm Makarov, such as the FEG PA-63, are common, inexpensive imports."

DHS over 2 billion rounds

Please keep this on topic.




Though I agree with qweesy, there is so much more going on than the average citizen knows or even wants to know about.

interesting take... I did not get that feel from the article, but would love to see more diesel options here.

What leads you to this conclusion?
