Most Japanese cars are built in USA. Toyota vehicles actually have more USA content that most domestic cars as big 3 build in Mexico and Brazil. Europe will have to worry but they also build many models in USA.

BMW X5 X3 and MB C series , Hyundai also builds in USA. So note if they can build in USA and export to other countries know US labor is quite cost effective.

Posted in: The inside story of the bra See in context

I am amazed how they changed bra sizing in USA. What used to be an A cup is now a C cup. :) It's all about feelings today. When I was in collge the braless look was the fashion . Women had some individuality. Now they all have that same exact shape.

Posted in: Hagerty defends U.S. trade policies, says they are not protectionist See in context

I'm amazed how the media is so clueless about the trade changes. It's not about tariffs but about equal access to each others markets. I noticed on 10 day vaction in Japan I only saw 2 American autos the whole time.I was looking hard and I know my cars. I now many in Japan, China and other Asian nations want USA product but taxed so high they can't afford to buy. The great giveaway of American markets is over ! Time for competition and 2 way free trade

An incentive to NOT BUY and will damage economy more. They start small and grow fast. Many USA states now near the 10% mark sales tax NY and CA. Govts need to consider spending as citizens do with more concern for value.

Posted in: Are more doors opening to tattooed visitors? See in context

Tatts are big fashion in USA now. Some are works of art and some mark a very important time or accomplishment in life. Its interesting to go to a water park in USA and see the changes in fashionable tattoos.

We are American and proud to be indiviual and thats quite differnt than Japan to be part of the fold.

Personally I don't have one or would have one but I support your right to wear one. MAGA
