Yea but we can always migrate that manufacturing capacity back to mexico, in fact some companies are doing that already.

And we're not short on oil, we have plenty of it.  Especially with our good neighbors to the north and their tar sands oil (and of course mexico to the south) :)  We get most of our other oil from the middle east, africa, south america because its cheaper, not because we dont have any

(2) War with the British Club! and tar sands are VERY EXPENSIVE, so goodbye to all those large cars!!!! and drive more of those nippy European small expensive cars!

Just google the name, and you'll discover that she's produces all the OBL tapes.

Why do you think the recent OBL tapes sound like Sacha Baron Cohen's voice?

Why did they purloin a photo of a Spaniard to post as an OBL photo?

Manufacturing in mexico isnt so much about labor costs as its about stability of the government.  There's also a HUGE savings in shipping costs and time which makes it competitive with china.

Tar sands oil becomes profitable @ $60-65/barrel, more expensive yes, but not outrageously.  There would be a migration away from the truly outrageous gas hogs, but we'd be ok

hmm i'm really liking this idea
