Expect fewer options at the dealership as chip shortage disrupts auto industry

by News Update

Buying a car these days is a challenge, given an array of difficulties facing the auto business. If you have a specific model in mind, it could take months to order your vehicle from most manufacturers. The problems stem from a global semiconductor shortage that could stretch until 2023. There are cars available, but for the foreseeable future it means less selection, no haggling and maybe paying well above the sticker price. Read more: Subscribe to The Washington Post on YouTube:

Cant they just make the chips out of a substitute material? Quit relying on the main source and figure out a solution people. Think outside the box

I have an idea. Why don't the US create chips?

This is what happens when these greedy corporations outsource manufacturing jobs overseas to save a nickel or two

Electronic is trash

The USA is expanding its chip manufacturing here at home and taking back other manufacturing jobs so this country once again becomes self-sustaining. It's just a matter of catching back up… Relying on other countries for essential supplies is something that should have never been allowed to happen in the first place.

Technology will never learn the lesson: just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD. Cars don't need Big Brother tech.

ABC's of Salvation

A – Admit you're a sinner in need of a Saviour (Romans 3:10, 6:23)

B – Believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins (1Corinthians 15:3-4)

C – Call upon the Name of the Lord and be saved (Romans 10:9-10, 10:13)

Believe what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross and be saved. As Paul said in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.

BELIEVE & BE SAVED

Technology is destroying any chance that humans will learn sustainable living. Give environment 1 hand, take with 1 billion others.

CAPITALISM IS THE BEST GREEDY SYSTEM IN THE WORLD FOR IT SATISFIES PEOPLE'S ECONOMIC ILLUSIONS OF PROSPERITY, CONSUMPTION OF ALL FORMS OF PRODUCTS INCLUDING BUYING A PORNO MAGAZINE, DISGRUNTLEMENT, GREED, SHORT-SATISFACTION, DELIGHT, SORROW, DISAPPOINTMENT, MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE, RIP OFF COSTS OF LIVING, BEAUTIFUL CARS THAT DRAIN THEIR POCKET, BEAUTIFUL MISTRESSES THAT CLEAN UP BUSINESSMEN'S WALLET FASTER THAN TRUMP CAN INVENT ANOTHER LIE ABOUT 2020 u.s.a P/ELECTION, TOY-BOYS WHO PREY ON OLD CELVEBRITIES WHO THINK THEY HAVE FOUND LOVE AGAIN IN A YOUNGER MAN, DUMB REPUBLICAN FOLLOWERS OF TRUMP WHO GIVE HIM DONATIONS FOR MASSAGING THEIR EGO OF HATING EVERYBODY EXCEPT THEMSELVES. AND WHAT ELSE? WHAT ELSE ? Finally, I would like remind people that EVENTUALLY THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM WILL END UP ON THE ROAD TO SELF-DESTRUCTION, but consumers will still belly-ache and complain about MIGRANT WORKERS CAUSING ALL THESE PROBLEMS WITHING THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. AMERICAN EUROPEAN SETTLERS WHOULD HAVE LEARNT THE HUMBLE LIFE AND LIVING FROM NATIVE AMERICANS, if they had learnt such lessons, then they would not need McNAUGHTY TO GO INTERSTELLAR TO FIND NEW PLANET THAT HUMANS CAN GO TO AND START THE PROCESS OF SELF-DESTRUCTION AGAIN. HAHAHAHAHA. TRY AS YOU MAY AMERICA, YOU ARE DOOMED AS EARTH'S NATURAL RESOURCES WILL GET DEPLETED SOONER OR LATER, AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL EVENTUALLY DISAPPEAR. Q.E.D. (Please let me know if: MARK KNOPFLER STEALS MY COMMENT, AND WRITE A SONG ABOUT MY COMMENT, JUST AS HE DID WITH HIS 'money for nothing' SONG, WHICH HE HAD HEARD A DELIVERY DRIVER IN A NEW YORK SUPERMARKET SAYING: "Now look at them yo-yos, that's the way you do it,ย You play the guitar on the MTV,ย That ain't workin', that's the way you do it,ย Money for nothin' and your chicks for free." Lol.

This is the price we pay for the profit above all else mentality of the past two to three decades. Everything has been outsourced to other countries and we are now vulnerable at so many levels
