    I don't care that they are made in USA or partially made here the point is that the company is owned by a foreign corporation.

    Toyota is a publicly owned company. By comparison, Ford is a...publicly owned company. In other words, you can buy Toyota stock and be a partial owner too. Welcome to the 21st century.

    We went through this argument back in Augustwhen this story really broke and some people wanted to sweep in under the rug, ooopos, I mean car mat.
    As I informed you in August we are all aware of what a publically owned corporation is but all publically owned corporations are domiciled somewhere and that somewhere is a country where it is controlled. Just because you or I can own a few stocks in Toyota or Ford that doesn't amount to squat when it comes to control.

    Hey I have a few thousand stocks in an insurance comapny that I once worked for but I do not did not and will not be able to control the policy of that publically owned company anymore than you can with your stock in Toyota even if you do "GET YOU HANDS ON A TOYOTA".





    BTW the concept of a publically owned corporation was true in the 19th, 2oth, as well as in the 21st century.

    And none of that has anything to do with whether it is a Japanese owned company. It's owned by whoever owns the stock. This is really basic stuff. No one cares where the CEO is headquartered, only that he makes good decisions.

    I have owned at least 12 - new American brand cars and most I kept runnig well past 100 k miles. The American branded car that I will say was garbage was an AMERICAN MOTORS. Ironic but unfortunately true..

    American auto manufacturers learned their lesson the hard way and they have made strides in quality that has not been accepted by people blinded by propoganda and false ideas.

    Look the "real basic" stuff is that who controls the bulk of the stock. When it comes to Toyota I will challenge you to show me that it is other than Japanese. Sure there are institutional investors who "own" big batches but let's face it Toyota pays taxes and lives under the rules of the country where it is domicled in and that ain't the USA.

    Hey Ford once owned about 30 + % of MAZDA yet MAZDA WAS STILL A Japanese company and Ford had influence but never control.
