That's how the forum works, a large number of members make xenophobic statements regardless that its a global forum.



REALLY? :o

You DID NOT just write that! :angry:

When all is said and done all I can say is that I am proud to drive an American car, from an American manufacturer, assembled by American workers.

I can't believe this is still going! I thought this thread was started by Harry just for people who were bored and sitting alone at home on the American holiday, :lol: It entertained me yesterday. Now it looks like people are slinging mud all over the place. :( My question still is, how many of our plastic model car kits are still made in America, if any? Does anyone know? Does anyone care? :huh: Just wondering. No offense to any other countries, please! Let's all be friends on here. :) Oh yeah, and Canada you are part of America!

I think it's great that you guys have the freedom to express yourselves, granted by both Gregg and the Bill of Rights. But, respect is expected. Some of you cut a very fine line. This is a global forum. Let's watch the disrespectful comments about other people's homelands. Please do not make me remove your posts. - M

Agreed with that, but I have to say one thing, I did not have internet from Sunday tell today, I just checked in few times from my phone, so I think I missed a lot, we have a new moderator now?, anything else I missed :huh:

Kind of weird to see a 'moderator' named 'MODERATOR'. I prefer when they have a real name.

Yup, that kind of breaks a rule all by itself.
I elect you Rob to push it till we all see the truth. Come on, be a man and take one for the team. :)

:rolleyes: ;) If you have ever been in a foreign country on one of THEIR National Holidays as an American, they will usually warn you to stay indoors off the streets. This may have been the case here with some of us stepping on foreign toes just a bit. I would like to publicly apologise for any rudeness and invite our fellow modelers back from around the world. I still enjoy the international flavor here.

I haven't seen even one post on this entire thread where anyone said anything about Canadian-built cars being inferior or slamming Canada in any way.

You sure you're reading the same posts the rest of us are reading?


I'm sure he is at least reading the same posts I am reading. There is at least one post that lambasted the Brampton Chrysler plant and the "French" Canadians who work there.

And yes, here in the US, Canada is a foreign country. Just like the US is a foreign country as far as Canadians are concerned. But there's no negative connotation meant... Canada is America's best ally in the world, and its biggest trading partner. And we share an unguarded border that's thousands of miles long. You guys are a foreign country, but our best friends!



Now.... Wisconsin is a foreign country!
