In addition, CA would be wise to let these companies use some of their cars for experiments.

however, they need to resolve the current group of illegals as well as change what is citizen, along with who can run for president/VP.

given the choice of keeping sales, or keeping manufacturing/engineering, well, only idiots go with sales/marketing.

If this is a service economy, why is the service so bad?
