you implied that buying foreign wouldnt to jack. that was the entire point of your joke, which was completely wrong. yeah buying american will help more, duh, but that wasnt what your joke was about.
When did I imply that? I'm pretty sure all I said that on the point that saying "help the our economy" followed by a suggestion to purchase a foreign car over a domestic is ironic. I don't believe I ever stated that buying foreign doesn't help at all, just that the obvious choice to helping our economy would be to buy an American car.
Again, you've read to far into some bold letters and humorous misspelling of "irony". Let it go already.
1 /ˈaɪrəni, ˈaɪər-/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [ahy-ruh-nee, ahy-er-] Show IPA
–noun, plural -nies.
1. the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning
: the irony of her reply, “How nice!” when I said I had to work all weekend.
a. a technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated.
saying that foreign cars helping the economy is irony is the same as saying that its not helping the economy at all, possibly even hurting it. Pick your words better.
