Re: Anti-abortion wave across America

And don't tell the anti-abortion folks that 95% of all human pregnancies are naturally aborted (miscarried). The vast majority of pregnancies are lost due to genetics issues, host incompatibilities, and so on, long before the women realize they're pregnant.

Re: Ford Ranger - 2019 in the United States

I looked forward to getting a new Ranger ever since they announced its coming to the USA. Then I looked at one and had sticker shock. $40,000 is way too much and I have lost interest in buying one. It's amazing how the same vehicle in Mexico with a 3.0 liter diesel engine costs only $16,000.
