Sigh. No idea what that is, and I'm afraid to google it because I'm pretty sure I'd be dumber afterward.

LOL, Nike is like the poster child for "screw US workers, we're going to China!" Jeep is mostly made in Mexico right? And Tesla is the most American-made car in a long time but only co-places dead last? LOL.
My Jeep was manufactured in the USA and I am quite sure parts come from other countries. However, Tesla hides where their components come from. Why is that? :Look at the following and I am sure there is China in there somewhere.......

Concerned about competitors either obtaining inside information or buying out necessary parts, Tesla is rather secretive about the more than two dozen parts suppliers for the Model S, but many of them have been uncovered by diligent researchers. Tesla manufactures the basic electric components of the car – the electric motor, the battery pack and the charger – but other parts come from suppliers spread across the U.S., Europe and Asia.


Below is a list of some of the purported key suppliers for Tesla's manufacturing production, along with the components they supply:


  • AGC Automotive: windshields
  • Brembo: brakes
  • Fisher Dynamics: power seats
  • Inteva Products: instrument panel
  • Modine Manufacturing Co.: battery chiller
  • Sika: acoustic dampers
  • Stabilus: liftgate gas spring
  • ZF Lenksysteme: power steering mechanism

Other alleged suppliers include ADAC, ABC Group, Angell-Demmel, Argent, Gentex, Harada, Hitachi Cable America, Hope Global, MacLean-Fogg, Magna International, Methode Electronics, Multimatic, Panasonic, Plastomer, PSM International, Riviera, T1 Automotive, Zanini Auto Group, TXU Corp., Universal Logistics Holdings, Inc., Affinia Group Intermediate Holdings Inc., Lithium Exploration Group, Inc., U.S. Lithium Exploration Group, Inc., Niocorp Developments, Ltd., Rare Element Resources, Ltd., Burlington Northern Sante Fe Corp., Cooper Industries, Ltd., Clarcor, Inc., Dana Corporation, DELPHI CORPORATION, Flowserve Corp., NextEra Energy, Inc., Harman International Industries Inc., Lightwave Logic, Inc., Molex Inc., Metaldyne Performance Group Inc., Nortek, Inc., ROHM AND HAAS COMPANY, Searchlight Minerals Corp.


Still, more rumoured suppliers include: Integrys Holding, Inc., Titanium Metals Corp., Thomas & Betts Corporation, Curaegis Technologies, Inc., Findex Com Inc., Vystar Corp., Liquidmetal Technologies Inc., Sense Technologies Inc., Omnitek Engineering Corp., Puradyn Filter Technologies Inc., Hammer Fiber Optics Holdings Corp., Amerityre Corp., Zap, Telkonet Inc., CDTI Advanced Materials, THT Heat Transfer Technology Inc., Zoom Telephonics Inc., Seachange International Inc., IEH Corporation, Arc Group Worldwide, Emcore Corp, CUI Global Inc., NI Industries Inc., Perma-pipe International Holdings Inc., UFP Technologies Inc., Applied Optoelectronics Inc., Paragon Offshore PLC, Universal Stainless & Allow Products Inc., Deswell Industries Inc., Trecora Resources, Core Molding Technologies Inc., Supreme Industries Inc., Neophotonics Corp., Harmonic Inc., CECO Environmental Corp., KMG Chemicals Inc., Gorman Rupp Co., DMC Global Inc., Avid Technology Inc., China Automotive Systems Inc., CSW Industrials Inc., Proto Labs Inc., Aaon Inc., Voxx International Corporation, Strattec Security Corp., CTS Corp., Bel Fuse Inc., Haynes International Inc., Pam Transportation Services Inc., Jason Industries Inc., and Handy & Harman Ltd.

I'm old enough to know when someone is pissing on my leg and tells me it's raining.
