    I've never hidden that the reason I am liberal is I loathe the Poors. They are violent and boring and most of them vote wrong. I want to eliminate poverty and the best way is to raise the Poors into the middle class. If you have a better idea, as say firing them into the Sun, I'm all ears.

    Just save the smart ones.

    if you want to talk to somebody who tolerates, nay, likes the Poors, you'll have to talk to Dr. Mrs. She f-cking dotes on them.

    I can't help you with your selfishness Kep. I'm all about peace and love and caring for my fellow man. Hell, my comments out here are proof of that.

    Rover, Kep, you’re both rich d-bags and come the revolution you’ll both face the guillotine. Kep just gets the benefit of being towards the back of the line.

    Yeah, I kinda veered off and missed my own point. WHat I was trying to get at was the Corolla standard interior vs. the Fusion Platinum. The Toyota's was just better.

    AND the Corolla is a car class below the Fusion.

    Is it really? I thought they were about the same: Four-door family sedan.

    Jeebus, you're right. The Corolla is considered a compact. I guess I was confusing it with the Camry. On a side note, Toyota sucks at giving cars names almost as much as Ford does.

    Edit: Good lord. Look at the Camry's interior (link)

    I think the American companies just don't care about building good cars. They don't sell enough, as fat Americans want big trucks and SUVs. So they say, why bother, no one wants to buy them.

    And as was pointed out, every time they do actually manage to cobble something decent together, as Ford did a few different times with the Focus, they pull the plug, cause they make more money selling trucks

    So anyone who wants a small, nicely turned out, small car, has to go Asian or European by default.

    ...which probably wouldn't happen without light trucks benefiting from a, you guessed it, 25% tariff.

    The 1% do have a lot of raking going on. The rest of us? A one tong dinner fork if we're lucky.
